The darkness looms…

…FIND THE LIGHT… This time I knew. I could feel it coming. The darkness. What can I say? I knew it well. I’d lived with it. The way it clawed into my thoughts and told them lies. The way it left me feeling fatigued. Constantly. The way I needed to sleep so much more than…

Being a modern day woman in the modern world of dating…

RATE ME OR HATE ME. Yesterday, I turned the not so dreaded 30. An age I was actually ridiculously excited about and feel will bring with it many opportunities to see with a clear perspective through a glass half full of red wine. The weekend before, a date I had. False hope he gave me….

Got myself a man!

THE HUNT IS OVER. In the span of a week, I landed myself a man. After searching for someone who gets me, is committed, who will never leave my side and loves me unconditionally. I’ve found him. We met online. Had our first date, under dim lighting. And I just knew. By the weekend, he…

How no red flags can also be a red flag.

AGAIN. ONE LITTLE WORD. SO MANY BIG EMOTIONS. Once again my heart has been hurt. My eyes have welled with tears. My feelings are raw. And I’ve been let down by the dregs of the male species. This one in particular, had no red flags that had presented themselves in the mere 5 week situation-ship…

No Expectations. Only Hope.

BEING HOPEFUL WHEN DATING FEELS COMPLETELY HOPELESS. Some would say it all happened too soon. I on the other hand, think all my previous dead end relationships have led me to this very day. This day of having no expectations upon meeting someone. Only hope. From one dud to the next, it’s easy to see…

The Making of a Podcast

INFORMING AND EMPOWERING YOU! My life is a humorous web of connections, coincidences, conspiracies and commitment phobes. And when you have access to all of this material on a daily basis it’d be wasteful not to share that with the world. The excitement and enthusiasm I tell my stories with needs to be heard by…

30 days of dating myself

HOW I TURNED SWIPING INTO SELF LIKING It began in the week of Valentine’s Day. I had just been disrespected by yet another loser, rejected by another idiot- who was still hung up on his ex and to top it off, had heard from an old flame and was not in the mood for any…

Change the game. Don’t let the game change you.

SPEAK THE VOICE THAT SHAKES WITHIN. Confrontation is not for me. This is probably why I spent much of my life struggling to stand up for myself and what I believed in. However, after recent let downs, ghostings by boys, witnessing too many moral injustices and constant disappointments from some of those people closest to…

The dating Merry-go-Round

THE VISCIOUS CYCLE OF DATING So I started the day with a text from my bestie, ‘I hate dating and men.’ Rash. But valid. We’ve all been there ladies! And for some of us more than others. Cue me consoling her, praising her for putting herself out there and analyzing the ‘red flags’ together before…
