Toxic Relations

We have either been in a bad relationship or have known of others who have. A toxic relationship leaves most unhappy and feeling as though the world is on their shoulders. Most, probably all, relationships will go through bad patches and it is more than likely couples will argue. However, these arguments should not leave [...]

Guilt Be Gone!

We all know that when swimming in the dating pool things can sometimes seem daunting, especially if we have been bitten by sharks before. Sometimes we let previous relationships cloud our judgement when trying to go forward as we can’t get over the emotional trauma of boyfriends past. In my personal experience this fear cannot [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

Quarter Life Crisis Syndrome

Definition: As Wiki defines it- The ‘quarter life crisis’ is a period of life following the major changes of adolescence, usually ranging from the late teens to the early thirties, in which a person begins to feel doubtful about their own lives, brought on by the stress of becoming an adult. To sum it up [...]

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 [...]


Gaining respect in a relationship is a must. It concludes how your partner will treat you and more importantly, how you feel about yourself.   Ultimately, a partner cannot truly love you if they do not respect you, thus you cannot truly love yourself if you let another person disrespect you.   In order to [...]

Wardrobe Malfunction

My wardrobe was starting to get rather cluttered I noticed. I reached and pulled out a jacket that I had not worn since I was in my teens! With a grim expression I decided to dedicate my afternoon to sorting out my wardrobe.   Jeans that were too big, jackets that no longer suited my [...]

Perfection Lost

When it came to the opposite sex I always thought that I had to appear perfect, make-up done immaculately, hair brushed without a strand out of place and teeth always gleaming. Little did I realise it was when I thought I was not perfect that I would actually be at my most, well, perfect.   [...]

Living In The Past

It is sometimes easier going backwards for some, rather than taking the more healthy approach and moving forward. Many of us tend to go round in a cycle of going back to an ex, leaving them and returning once more.   I myself have never been one to go back to an ex or a [...]

Holy Harijuku, what big bones you have, Gwen!

It’s no wonder that we stress so much over every morsel that passes our lips with the way that weight-gain and dieting is perpetually presented in the media as being either too much, too little, or just simply not good enough; there really is no pleasing anybody!   As a woman who enjoys food, I [...]

A Tough Nut To Crack

It is as though I walk around with armour, a bullet proof vest or a brick wall, maybe even all three combined.   When it comes to opening up in a relationship, my thoughts and words get tangled and my heart races hard. It seems to be the most difficult obstacle to overcome. You hope [...]

Winter Survival

A dark sky, the sound of rain or the crazy wind usually greets me every morning, I am just waiting for the snow now!   Long gone are those warm, sunny days where the sun shone down on us, we will not be seeing that for quite a few more months! With that said, why [...]

Loving Yourself

Before contemplating a serious relationship with another person, I believe you have to have a healthy relationship with yourself first. In all fairness I think it is okay, to an extent, for a person to love themselves without being too big headed about it!   You have to love yourself before you learn to love [...]

Shattered Mirror

Like a mirror, once trust is broken it is never the same again. No matter how many times you try your best to fix it, you will never see a clear image.   That is why so many people find trusting their partner so difficult and at times scary, as no one wants their trust [...]

The Gentleman and The Lady

I am in love with old fashioned romance! The days where men use to open doors for women, surprise them with flowers and chocolates and make an effort to connect intellectually.   I cannot help but feel that many women are lacking the gentleman, the man who would go to any lengths in order to [...]

Personal Space

In a relationship you can sometimes get comfortable to the point where you put in less effort with each other as well as yourself.   Being around each other too much can mean that you take each other for granted and can often try less hard with one another. This could result in a lack [...]

In Her Shoes

It is probably easier said than done to, “get over it” or to “not think about it too much”. When it is a friend who is going through a bad break up or who has a few guy issues, we often wave it away, forgetting how hard it was when we were in a similar [...]
