How do you spell love? T-R-U-S-T

Trust.  A little word with so much power.  Having had your trust betrayed and abused, how do you ever move on from that, and be happy in another relationship?  And does that clarity equal intelligent self-preservation, or self-sabotage? Anyone who’s ever been hurt can relate to nerves and anxiety that accompany the start of something [...]

I want to believe in love again

When an animal is injured it hides away to lick its wounds and recover. The difference is, unless mortally wounded an animal will come back into the world. Many humans don’t. When you get played, you can’t help but look back, analyse and overthink. How did I read him so wrongly? How did I misread [...]

Kimye To Wed!

First comes love,  second comes marri… well, actually, second comes baby North, third comes a huge 15-carat ring courtesy of Mr. West. Yes, that’s right, if you didn’t already know by now Kim and Kanye are engaged! The news comes just days after Kanye told his Seattle concert audience that he planned to marry her [...]

Autumn Attire

I hate the cold weather, dull, dark and dreary, it’s not something I particularly welcome. But you know what they say, every miserable grey cloud has a silver lining…. that being the excuse to buy more clothes of course! Whilst I don’t like the weather I do love the autumn/winter fashion, burgundy, deep fiery colours, [...]

The great first date

So you’ve agreed to meet up with a guy you’ve been emailing through a dating site. Up until the date itself there’s no real pressure. It’s just 2 people communicating electronically with no idea of whether or not they will actually get on. Then the day comes, as does the realisation your jeans are baggier [...]

Acceptance + freedom = happiness

The moment you realise you are completely free of all feeling toward your ex is an amazing moment. After splitting most people realise their ex wasn’t right for them, but still hurt when they dwell on it. The broken plans, broken home, feeling of having to start over – again. Although you stopped your rose-tinted [...]

Nissen’s Dating Rules

  I’ve not had the most sparkling, sizzling, smooch-filled, sociable, spine-tingling of summers. But it was what it was, and as much as I love hot weather, the calm dependability of autumn will be refreshing. I don’t expect to spend my autumn with anyone. I’ve come to understand, at a bone-marrow level, that Mr Mindfuck [...]

Trying to move on…

Tonight I have a hangover.  Not alcohol-related, but just as annoying, just as ‘poor me’ inducing and just as difficult to shake off. But my hangover is my bastard ex. The sad thing is, I never really knew him. And so anything he does now is no surprise, because I have absolutely no idea what [...]

Would you, ummm…..

… Make me come? Whether getting back in the saddle after years, or weeks, getting pelvic with a new person is always a nerve-wracking experience, hence the amount of alcohol often consumed. I’m not talking about holiday romances or hazy hook-ups, but about new sex with someone you think ‘maybe….’ about. I could fill a [...]

To (f)B or not to (f)B…..

 is the question.  Or more specifically, how soon is too soon to FB? One of my beautiful friends recently asked me this, and I found I had no answer. Very unlike me. But it’s a good question, due to both security and the speed of openness in any budding relationship. We know that we should [...]

Broken wings = broken heartstrings?

“Beautiful mind, tortured soul.  I do have to figure out why I am attracted to these broken birds”.   So said the amazing Katy Perry in last month’s Vogue.  Preaching to the choir sister; I too am asking myself this.  After 3 attempts at relationships with issue-ridden overgrown man-child(ren), I’m wondering why I keep going for [...]

Epiphany

It’s amazing, the things you miss. The little red 1 on your Facebook page, your phone lighting up multiple times during the day with another sweet nothing text, the photo of you two that fills the screen when he calls. It’s also amazing when you realise that you don’t actually mis HIM. The break-up break-through [...]

SATC – the ultimate relationship manual

I’m distracting myself from my collapsed world by watching SATC 2 – the movie.  Despite the stereotypes of the Middle East and the underdevelopment of Samantha and Miranda’s characters, it’s not a bad film.  A disappointment in the cinema after waiting for it excitedly, but a nice dash of colourful escapism to push back the [...]

Through The Door Launch Party

As a financially challenged student living in London, my Friday evenings are usually spent either cramming for my impending exams or seeing how long fifteen pounds will last on a night out (note: not that long!) However, last Friday night I found myself at a PR event sipping free champagne and networking with new up [...]
