A New Year’s Kiss

The New Year’s Kiss. A wonderfully romantic, highly pressurised moment that happens on the stroke of midnight between the 31st of December and the 1st of January every year. A seemingly spontaneous moment when people all across the same time zone lock lips with their significant other, while the sad singles of the world look [...]

Falling in love – a shock to the heart AND the knees

As we get older our requirements change.  We change.  Our hearts are less penetrable, and our bones get frailer.  But when falling in love is so hard on the knees, how do you do it without sustaining a permanent knee injury?  Tis the season to be …. contemplating life, the universe and the bigger picture.  [...]

Lying to Impress

Most of us have done it at one time or another. Whether it be during a job interview (“I’m so interested in moving up within your company Mr Starbucks”)  or to make your last holiday sound so much more amazing than it was (really it was just a mess of airport delays and food poisoning wasn’t it?) [...]

The One

  The One. The mystical person who is supposed to make your heart flutter and stomach flip. The enchanting soul mate that we are encouraged to spend our life searching for, the individual that all block buster films tell us will be gorgeous and smart and will pull us into whirlwind romances. That someone that [...]

The Truth About Internet Histories

This morning I decided that instead of lying in bed wishing I was asleep, I would actually get up and do some work, so I hauled my bed head over to my boyfriend’s laptop. When suddenly what had been a snoring bump under the duvet turned into a running boyfriend who lunged across the room, [...]

To Marry Him Or Not To Marry Him?

This question troubles most of the ladies who are all set to walk down the Aisle and take vows. They suffer from this dilemma till the very last moment. If she is doing the right thing? Has she chosen the right person? Rather than being sure that He is the one, she keeps on questioning [...]

I pity the fool

  I am not a massively competitive person. Don’t get me wrong I don’t enjoy losing, but I get over coming last pretty quickly as I have accepted that when it comes to sports my abilities are a bit hit and miss, cards games I often put to luck and drinking contests usually end in [...]

Come To Bed

Everybody knows that a standard part of a conventional relationship is that at some point you will share a bed with your other half. I am not talking about in a sexual way, but in the innocent spooning way.  This may not sound like an issue, but to me it is my biggest nightmare. I [...]

Our Own Worst Enemies

There are many phases to dating. The first date, the honey moon, when things become real and when things get serious. Then there can also be when things go bad. If you are lucky then the bad phase may be early on when neither of you know how you really feel or when lust is [...]

A Slice of Chub Love

  It was a typical morning in the office and as per my normal break time routine I was glancing at the online news headlines. However, today one particular article caught my eye. It was about a new study conducted on Latvian women had shown that overall they found overweight men to be the most attractive. [...]

The Silent Argument

Your boyfriend’s pissed you off? Did he do something totally inappropriate that he should’ve known wasn’t ok, but he done it anyway? Like tell you that your new hairstyle makes you look like Ringo Starr? Or did he stare blatantly down your gran’s Christmas jumper for a good long horror-filled (on your part) minute? He didn’t [...]

To text or not to text, that is the question

It is no secret that normally in my articles I try to impart some sort of wisdom, granted it may be slightly shoddy wisdom, or give you things to consider that you may not have before. However, this article is an exception as for once I am seeking your opinions rather than just telling you [...]

Ripping up the Relationship Rota

Humans. We are creatures of routine. We have rotas and schedules for everything from the second we are born. School schedules, job schedules, diary dates for visiting family and friends. Oh, yawn! I seem to have fallen into an uninterested stupor just thinking about the word ‘routine’. I guess it’s easier for me than for [...]

Can you hear the relationship clock ticking?

When I first watched the film Bridget Jones a few years ago, I chuckled at the reference of a woman’s biological clock. Tick tock tick tock. The idea that our future family plans have an expiry date has always amused me; it seemed like a myth generated from chic flicks. However, as my 23rd birthday [...]

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 [...]

Cheer up boys, your mascara is running

In the spirit of Movember… Let’s take a moment to think about life for the men in our lives. Life is tough for women – but it’s not like guys have it easy either.  If they get genital cancer, they frequently feel they are losing their manhood, their identity, their masculinity.  Either their testicles, or [...]

Advice versus Judgement

It was Saturday night and the game of beer pong was in full force. The shots had turned into triples, the glasses grew into pints. Alcohol affects everyone in different ways, yet unfortunately for my drinking opponent one too many drinks makes me feel wise, and obnoxious, beyond my years. I was being told about [...]

Secrets, Lies and Surprises

I stayed at my brother’s the other night.  It was absolutely hilarious – me and him taking the proverbial out of one another, and his fiance joining in too.  It was a fun family night – the content of which we agreed not to disclose to our aging parents.  I told him that I was [...]

Tales of Horror from the Dating Front Line

Halloween is all about horror and fear, ghosts, witches, vampires and according to the Sun; Katie Price wearing small pieces of PVC that vaguely resemble an official uniform. But here at LoveScene, and in my lively imagination, Halloween is all about that classic brand of fireside tale; the dating horror story.   Here I have [...]
