The Game Widow

Games are meant to be a fun activity that you can consider a hobby but for certain people they can be the ultimate make or break point in a relationship. I’m not going say I’m one of them because I’m not, I bought my partner a Xbox for Christmas last year, so if I was [...]

Relationship Recovery

I always find interesting points about relationships when looking through various magazines and social media. But finding an article entitled “cheating made our relationship better” made me laugh. It’s totally baffling how the ultimate betrayal could strengthen something that was weak already. Digging deeper into this it seems some crackpots think that dividing your emotional [...]

The Life Plan

When you start high school it feels like the clock is ticking; the countdown to being an adult has begun. Any decision you make is vital to your future and it’s very stressful especially when you’re only a teenager. It’s hard enough figuring out what you want to do with yourself but add another person [...]

Who’s The Boss?

I recently started a new part time job where a couple works together, one is a supervisor and the other just a team member. On the surface they seem fine with each other in work but the other day it was awkwardness central when they erupted into a fight where she told him to “get [...]

Dream Cheating

I recently had the most horrendous dream where my fiancé was cheating on me, I woke up crying and was in a mood with him until I realised “I just dreamt that; it wasn’t real.” All right, I’m one of those people that will partake in a cheese board before bed and not be worried [...]

Modern Dating

Years ago the regular “where did you meet?” story would be “in a bar” or someone introducing each other. Whereas now meeting someone can be done by logging onto your laptop or signing up for a new reality show. I’d be such a hypocrite to say it’s sad as I met my fiancé on Myspace, [...]

Snowed In – Relationship Friend or Foe?

What’s that song that makes snow sound so delightful? “oh the weather outside is frightful, but the fire is so delightful and since we’ve no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…”  How about snow go and take a running jump! It sounds odd to say the weather can affect [...]

The Dating Rules

Dating is such a scary concept; the multiple rules attached make it even more terrifying. I’m not the best person to talk on this subject, as I’m not single, yet the thing that intrigues me is what’s known as ‘the rules’. I might be completely off base but do they still apply? Everyone’s heard of [...]

Who is the more irritating sex?

I’m under no illusions, I know both sexes can get right of your last nerve but I’ve been questioning lately who is the most annoying to their partners. Laying it all out on the table, I know I can be annoying; come on girls admit it. I constantly whinge and moan and my crying tendencies [...]

Sued for being ugly, do looks really matter?

Has the world actually gone mad?   When I read the story about a man suing his ex-wife for being ugly I had to delve deeper. Basically after having a daughter with his wife, Jian Feng accused his wife of cheating, as the child was so ugly it didn’t look like them. After all the [...]

Christmas Present Politics

I’ve always been one of those people that panic buys at Christmas; I fall hook line and sinker for the 3 for 2 deals and bulk buying aromatherapy candles for every woman I know but I’ve realised I need to face my panic buying problem. If I can’t afford it I don’t buy it and [...]

No Compromises

Some people just know what they want out of life, the house, dog and 2.4 children with a steady 9-5 to support it all.   When you first start out in a relationship, it’s all hearts and roses; you peacefully coexist and mesh together in a whirlwind of romance. Getting to know each other can [...]

Wedding Branding

Ever since I got engaged about a month ago I’ve been looking at ideas on Pinterest and planning what I would like but some of the stuff I’ve found has actually scared me! It’s all well and good planning a wedding and getting caught up in the excitement of it, yet when I found what [...]

Who Can Buy Love?

  I’m a bit baffled by how women’s self reliance is going out the window. How can women work for gender equality and then base a man’s date-ability from the size of his wallet? Romantic decisions based on finance? I didn’t know you had to ask for a credit rating nowadays.   The way I [...]

Teetotal, Please

When I see another girl or boy staggering out of a club or pub, I feel a bit disheartened. When did it become socially acceptable to be this drunk, let alone in public view?   It’s not even the drunkenness that annoys me, but the cattle all moving in and out of clubs expecting to [...]

Engaged For An Age

All of a sudden it’s become major news that Brad Pitt and Angelina are now engaged. After 6 kids and 7 years together since they first met on the set of Mr and Mrs Smith in 2005, people are desperate to know when their wedding will take place. The couple have previously been reported as [...]

Opening The Ex-File

There’s a saying that states an ex is an ex for a reason, but on reflection is it a good enough reason to keep you away if time has passed?   I’m certainly not advocating serious reasons where they is no trust due to cheating, and you get back with that same person that turned [...]
