3 Words That Will Ruin Your Relationship

We’ve said them. You’ve said them.

In fact, these three average and ordinary words can even make it impossible for someone who [...]

Dating etiquette: Can I just order a burger or…?

From the moment of conception I was pestering my mother for some kind of chocolate-covered snack from within the womb, so it’s not much of a surprise that I’ve grown into a woman who really does love her food. In my day-to-day life, this causes no problem; in my dating life, it makes things a [...]

How do you get back in the dating game?

It seems, as my friends and I creep closer into adulthood, more and more of us are finding ourselves in serious and steady relationships. Dating is a thing of the past for the most of us; so when we all started watching the Channel 4 series, ‘Dates’, which is allegedly an honest look at modern dating, [...]

How Much Should You Share About Your Past?

We’ve all got skeletons in our closets. Each and every one of us has something about our past that we’d rather nobody knew about…especially a date or someone we’d like to date. Maybe it’s the number of sexual partners you had in your wilder days. Maybe it’s the lack of sexual partners you’ve had. Maybe [...]

Feeling Neglected? What to Do When His Friends Are More Important Than You

It hurts to be somebody’s fall-back plan. When your partner seems to want to spend time with his (or her) friends instead of with you, it not only hurts, it’s bad for your relationship too. Thinking that you are the “have to” for your partner instead of the “want to” can leave you feeling neglected and [...]

The lament of the sleep-deprived dater

I’m a cheerful person.  Part of my ‘thing’ is to bring smiles, laughter and happiness to others.  I like to be positive when it comes to most stuff.  But I’m pretty cynical and jaded in a relationship sense, and I want to be honest.  So here it is – dating is too much effort, too [...]

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.  [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Another Blue Valentine’s Day

So, in the world of post-apocalyptic Valentine’s days, the big red balloons come down from shop windows, people stop complaining about being single and the love that was in the air is preserved in a tightly-sealed vacuum until next year. This may sound morose, but this is the only way I see it. I’ve even [...]

With my girls, gays and guys in my life… how do I make time for a man?

My calm, cool demeanour, tough shell and ability to remain focused yet approachable under fire is one of the things I pride myself on.  I am a natural-born leader, always willing to think of others and consider all the possible outcomes from any particular course of action.  I appear unflappable, confident and in control.  But [...]

Ramblings of a First Time Dater

Entering the dating scene, so far, has been relatively painless but wildly confusing. I’ve always been one for dating within childhood friendship groups – you have the safety of knowing who they are, where they’re from, what they do, what they’re like – but I’ve recently branched out to meet up with ‘strangers’.   At [...]

Valentines Day – necessary or nonsense?

In roughly two weeks time most couples will be giving and receiving cards that say “I Love You”, sending roses and making an effort to be romantic to their other halves.   Valentines Day is approaching and it is the one day that you should hold hands and gaze into each others eyes – or [...]

A fresh new interest. After being single for a while, you come across a man that ticks all the right boxes, and he seems to be showing an interest in you too – not something that comes around every day! And what’s more, he’s come to you at the right time, and nothing seems to [...]

The Men That Slipped The Net

My one is a guy I went out with when I was seventeen. Of course, all of you normal people who aren’t embroiled in the emotional turmoil of it all can turn and say to me, ‘But you were only a kid.’ I know that. But the two years we had together are still yet [...]

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 [...]
