Date #59 – follow up ✅

So, my last post was rather emotional. I deliberately wrote it in a raw state because it is very important to me not to mask the negative aspects of this experience (and life!) or to allow the passage of time to ‘forgive and forget’ the despicable behaviour of some people. Aside from what I described…

My dating app goodbye

In 2011, I remember having a discussion with a lady who had tried internet dating. I can’t remember how we got onto the subject, but she seemed very keen to tell me that she wasn’t having much success because, in her words, “Most blokes just want to get their leg over.” I had no experience…

Date #59 ✅

R, 36, English R and I matched on Tinder the day after my adventures with J (#48) ended and two days before I connected with my last date. Given how upset I was feeling over what happened with J the night before, it was particularly nice to connect with someone so pleasant and normal. I…

Date #48 – continued ✅

My last post about J was left with me feeling like I needed a break from him and that’s precisely what happened. I thought about him from time to time, but the break felt good. He contacted me the following week – the day after I wrote the last post about him actually. Typical! We…

Date #57 ✅

X, 32, English X and I matched on 21 July 2015. One of his profile pictures said “Match me for a free massage 🙂” and his bio went on to say that he was a health and massage therapist. After my experience with #46 I was rather excited. I liked him and we matched. He…
