There’s been moments these past few lockdown-y months that I’ve had short episodes of extreme selfpity. To be expected, surely, and probably not a surprise to anyone.

Losing the spice (girls) of life
“Who are you, and what have you done with Zoë?’ I was asked last week while catching up with a friend over Whatsapp. And as I typed the very honest answer: ‘I don’t know. I lost her somewhere around July and haven’t found her since’ – I felt a single tear roll down my cheek.Continue reading “Losing the spice (girls) of life”
Tinder Tales – the curious case of the neck-beard
You can spend ages making generalizations that can fit the entire online dating community. It’s hilarious. I do it all the time.

I had a talk with my manager today about my progress and learning curve in my new job. It was a good talk.

You see – when it comes to my new endeavorsContinue reading “Same mistakes”

Like the edge of yourContinue reading “On reaching out and taking in.”
Tinder Tales – But what does it MEAN?!
The world of online dating is one of repetition. Something which I find HIGHLY aggravating. (Even though I KNOW that I can’t particularly take it out on all the guys asking me all the same questions because I TOO realize that they often cover the basics you DO need to know about a new person.Continue reading “Tinder Tales – But what does it MEAN?!”
Tinder Tales – Picky
Opening lines are hard in online dating. I know. I’ve been there (that one whole time last week, but hey, I HAVE been there!). Scratch that. Online dating is hard. As a whole. In its entirety. Totally and completely. Scratch that. LOVE is hard. The finding it, building it and keeping it. But that isContinue reading “Tinder Tales – Picky”

From bad to worse
Can you relate?Sometimes I watch things that are SO painfully accurate for my life that I just sit there nodding my head: ‘Yup. That’sa me.’ And coincidentally: that’s recognition is VERY rarely a positive occasions. It’s usually the painful ‘Oh god. Preach.’ Iliza says it perfectly (and a lot more fun when you actually watchContinue reading “From bad to worse”
