It’s perfectly okay for you to be single, I promise.

This is an issue that I’m facing a lot lately, which is why after a long hiatus from writing for this wonderful website, I just felt that I had to return to my relationship rants to ask if any other women are being asked this question a little more often that they’d like: Oh, why [...]

The Man Detox

It’s the New Year. Hey 2014, you’d better be a good one! I know a good few of you are going to be having something of a detox January. No alcohol, few carbs and a only the tiniest amount of sugar after the excesses and jollity of December. Cutting out caffeine? Downing the vegetable juice? Your [...]

The Potential Partner Checklist

We’ve all done it. We’ve all not said yes to a date with a guy because he didn’t quite meet up with our expectations. You may have fancied him a bit but said no because you didn’t want to sit down for a coffee with him and then realise he wasn’t as funny or charming [...]

10 Facts You Don’t Know About Keeping Him Interested

So, you’ve been hanging out with a guy who is amazing and wonderful. You two have been out on a couple of dates (or maybe more). You’re having a great time with him and you think everything is going well except… You’re just not sure. You’ve been through this scenario before where it’s all fun, [...]

5 Turn-Arounds When Jealousy Is Ruining Your Lovelife

Everything was going great, until it happened again. Like it always does, your jealousy crashed in and spoiled the date you were on. Just like in the past, your jealousy ruined the good thing you had going with a fabulous guy and left you miserable and embarrassed. That’s the way that jealousy works. It feels [...]

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 [...]

10 Reasons Why He Hasn’t Asked You Out Again

You stare at your phone as if you could will him to call or text you. The great guy you met and went out with hasn’t contacted you at all and you’re worried. Your mind is going a million miles an hour with theories about why he’s been silent. This has got to be one [...]

Behind every great woman is a …. rubbish friend

   We have all been there. We have all gossiped with our best mates about boys, how to get that crush and what to text back the hotties from Friday night. We have all then been pretty miffed when things actually hit it off and suddenly our friend disappears and leaves us behind. There is [...]

Baggage

Recently I was passing my lunch break by flicking through articles on an online newspaper site (but only because I had read everything on LoveScene, obviously). I came across an article about three women who put their husbands’ skills to the test by allowing them to pack their wives holiday suitcases. Unsurprisingly, the men failed [...]

Singles Nights…?

I was at work the other day, having a flick through one of those free magazines people hand out on the street when I came across an article that made me both chuckle to myself and die a little inside all at the same time. It was about singles nights. Not just any singles nights [...]

The Unlikeliest Couple in Hollywood?

Just casually browsing the internet’s bright and shiny gossip pages (when I should be doing more important things, mind) when I came across a piece about Cameron Diaz dating Jason Segel (you would know him from How I Met Your Mother, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, other American comedy things…). What? Hey?! I was completely shocked! She’s a [...]

We empathize with those who have been searching and searching for the right partner and come up empty. And feel so alone. Maybe you’ve [...]

3 Words That Will Ruin Your Relationship

We’ve said them. You’ve said them. Everybody has said (out loud or in our minds) these three very innocent words whose combined meaning packs a mean punch that can knock everything that’s sweet and wonderful right out of a relationship. In fact, these three average and ordinary words can even make it impossible for someone who [...]

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 [...]

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 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 [...]

The greatest love story of all time

The ‘great’ love stories are those which live on in literature and popular culture – Anthony and Cleopatra, Romeo and Juliet, Aladdin and Jasmine.  What about the real great love stories, the ones that don’t end in tragedy or happily ever after?  The ones where, at the end of the party, the music stops and [...]

Fun, Unusual Wedding Trends

Weddings – once upon a time, it seemed like if you had been to one, you had seen them all. Since then though, couples have embraced the challenge of differentiating themselves from their peers and parents by adopting unique (if not wacky) décor elements. Only time will tell if these innovative new concepts are the [...]

It’s no longer unusual to hear of people meeting serious partners online and, if you go about things the right way, there’s every reason to believe that you’ll find success. However, there are several pitfalls to avoid when dating online (and there’s a surprising number of people who fail to heed them!). Pay attention to [...]
