Did Someone Say Sandwiches?

You know the internet is crazy when an inanimate object slides into your DMs. And it’s even creepier when said inanimate object messages in reply to one of your instagram stories “hey, that’s my view” when you’ve posted a pic from your balcony.

Nevertheless, she persisted

I haven’t written for a while. I haven’t written because this year has kicked my ass. There has been man stress, work stress, more man stress, and now more work stress. I haven’t had mental capacity for the blog and, for months now, I haven’t been “properly” dating either, albeit somehow there are still men in my life.

Should We Build Walls?

2019-01-09T10:40:41-08:00January 9th, 2019|

Are walls a good thing? Should we be erecting them? No, not the Mexican border kind ordered by an over-tanned, over-inflated world leader. But the kind that protect ourselves, protect our hearts?

I’ve Found It Hard To Write

2018-10-12T05:47:50-07:00October 12th, 2018|

Oct-2018 I’ve found it hard to write because five years after my divorce papers were signed, I’m still single. I’ve found it hard to write because it's been difficult to find the humour, and the silver linings, and the lessons [...]

Please Remove The Bullet – Part 2 of 2

I never thought going back would be easy, but I could never have imagined how much it would tax me. To live everyday second guessing what your partner is telling you, trying to determine if they’re lying, looking for telltale signs of the behaviour repeating itself.

Gone Fishing… Catfishing

2018-04-24T08:25:16-07:00April 24th, 2018|

Trusting your gut is all well and good but how do you employ that strategy when the very nature of dating, particularly online dating, is that of having to take things at face value? Where does blind faith stop and healthy suspicion take over? When should you trust and when should you question? In other words, how do you know when you’re being catfished?

The Aftermath – Part 4.1?

2018-03-04T08:23:16-08:00March 4th, 2018|

I guess you could call this a bonus post? I had thought I’d be able to get the whole godforsaken Filipeen saga wrapped up in 4 parts (you can read part 1, part 2, part 3, part 4) but there’s still more shittery to write about, so here I am.

All Kinds of F*&%ed Up – Part 4 of 4

2018-03-02T05:06:30-08:00March 2nd, 2018|

The morning after Boxing Day, Filipeen was back at work but I had an extra day off, so in my “I can’t help but be nice” state of mind, I finished tidying up the rest of his place. We’d done a lot of it the night before but there was still piles of dishes, boxes of drink and generally stuff all out of place. So I let my cleanliness OCD take over and fixed it all up.

Perfection On Paper

2018-01-23T06:50:04-08:00January 23rd, 2018|

Matching with someone on dating apps, like Bumble or Tinder, is about as meaningful as waking up with a hangover and saying you’re not going to drink again. There is no substance to it, it’s borne out of necessity and the likelihood of you following through with it is probably 5%.
