To Spit Or To Swallow Your Emotions?

Relationships. We spend so much time thinking and talking about them. Initially, we question if it will happen and when it does, where will it go? Will it be what I want? Reality sets in once the hormones wear off, and we consider whether to make or break.   When they end, inevitably someone gets [...]

Is The Past In The Present?

A friend of mine has been in a relationship with the same person for nearly three years. Unfortunately, it hasn’t been a consistent relationship. Perhaps I should revise that sentence to: a friend of mine has been in love with the same person for nearly three years. The reason for the revision of that sentence [...]

Opening The Ex-File

There’s a saying that states an ex is an ex for a reason, but on reflection is it a good enough reason to keep you away if time has passed?   I’m certainly not advocating serious reasons where they is no trust due to cheating, and you get back with that same person that turned [...]

I Can Still See You…

When you live away from “home” visits back can be fraught with danger: will your friends notice the weight you have put on?  Will everyone have gone on to dazzling heights in their careers? Will pets and peoples’ babies remember who you are?  But surely the WORST thing about going back home is the high [...]

The Ex

Seriously why don’t they just disappear, self combust or at least have the decency to move? Was it SATC’s Carrie who thought there should be an ‘island of ex boyfriends’? Now there is a humane course of action to wholeheartedly support. Note to self, ring Branson he must have somewhere to spare. This may not [...]

Just another “failed” romance!!!

I hate the phrase ‘failed romance.’ It’s so very negative and immediately makes me think of the dreaded below par results at school. Nowadays I’m not sure it is possible to fail academically, but when it comes to love and romance we’re doing it more than ever. Or are we? Do some relationships not just [...]

Forever Friends?

Is it simply refusing to let go or is remaining friends with the ex the height of maturity? Does it secretly mean one or both of you are hoping to rekindle the romance? Or possibly just keeping a one timelover on the back burner for the inevitable sex drought ahead? Or am I just a [...]

The first cut is the deepest?

They say, well Rod Stewart does in the Cat Stevens song I love, that “the first cut is the deepest.” They, well Rod, are of course talking about love and the pain such magic brings when it all comes crashing down around our ears, leaving our hopes in tatters and our hearts torn – sometimes [...]

The one after the one.

What happens if you are the one, well, after the one? Is that statement nonsensical? Does it cancel one of you out? Or does it actually negate the concept of ‘the soulmate’ completely? Modern relationships are, on the whole, no longer born from necessity or tradition. Rather we move along a spectrum, from first dates [...]

Forget the ex….. Really?

So scientists are at it again, telling us how to live our lives, trying to play god with the world. This time they say we would do well to forget our first love, because the set an un-achievable benchmark for future lovers.   I remember my first love, I remember been stood under a public [...]

Sex with the Ex!

Splitting up with someone is hard, our emotions are all over the place, and we just want to hide in our beds and come back out when the pain is gone, only that’s not how things work, so we go out and get drunk instead, and all too often we manage to take our ex [...]
