The “D” Word : The one with the ice cream

Anyone who knows me in real life will know this story from when it happened back in 2016, it’s pretty much a favourite tale to dust off every so often during social events.

So settle down, kiddos… here’s the story of the date who ate my ice cream.

I wish he was that cute though…

New Home, New Me, New 2016

Before 2016, I had never lived by myself.  It felt like something I could have really done, but never really had the chance (or balls) to.

So on the first of May, I moved out…

#ShitGotReal

Déjà vu (noun) The illusion of having previously experienced something actually being encountered for the first time.

Feels very relevant, seeing as I haven’t blogged again for over 2 years!  Terribly inconsistent but I have good reasons, honest!!

The “D” Word: Seduction by Awkwardness

So I had a bad date with the help of Dutch, so the best thing to do was Taylor Swift it.

Shake that shit off.

And yes, Taylor Swift is a guilty pleasure and one of my spirit animals.  Judge me all you want.

The “D” Word: Take a deep breath…

… and it’s time to dive into the single pool to try and catch me a fish.  Or as other people call it – dating.

I put myself on a dating site, then it’s a case of pulling on a metaphorical pair of waders and find a frog worth kissing.  Unfortunately, having been in a relationship for a while meant that I was somewhat naive.

So here it is: my first date since the big break-up.  And it was a doozy…

The “D” Word: Ready to mingle

You’re single and ready to mingle.  You have the flattering sexy dress / outfit, you nailed your make-up, you’re oozing confidence but there’s a hitch:

How do you meet people to date?!

Seriously?  What do you do?!  Cover yourself in bacon and stand in the middle of a club to twerk?  Set up a Wile E. Coyote trap with a decent steak and beer, stooped round the corner holding the other end of the string?  How was I going to get into the dating scene?!

Kicking the “30” bucket

Turning 30

As I’m hurtling towards the bright, blinding exit light that is my 20’s; I feel like I should be having a meltdown as middle age looms ever closer.  So I decided to do a thing… it’s called a “kicking the 30 bucket” list which is snappier then :

13 things to do by the time I’m done with being 30 (so by the age of 30 years and 364 days old).

Cue the theme tune!

The “D” word: Dating

I get it a lot… Why are you single?  You’re attractive / funny / smart / etc, how come you’re not married?  You’d be an awesome wife / mum one day.

“That’s sweet of you to say,” I reply.  It’s not for a lack of trying, but I must confess finding love is not high on my list of things I must have in my life right now.  Also this is pretty accurate:
