I’m currently reading a book that has been recommended to me called 'Modern Romance' by Aziz Ansari- an American actor and comedian- and Eric Klinenberg- who is a sociologist. They designed a huge research project to find out how dating has changed over the years. In the 1960s in England and Wales, 76% of brides … Continue reading A real love story
Normal girl found normal guy… online.
When I started blogging last year, I began writing a few times a week. I then decided to cut it back to a few times a month. Then I decided that maybe I was boring people with my nonsense chat so I cut it back to once a month. I also decided I’d never write … Continue reading Normal girl found normal guy… online.
I got myself a date!❤️👫
It’s been one year since I wrote and published my first blog so I thought I’d update you on what has happened in that year. Back then I had zero idea what I was doing… and if I’m honest, I still don’t! It’s very much a “learning on the job” type of thing, however I’ve … Continue reading I got myself a date!❤️👫
Making the first move….
I’ve recently been doing some radio interviews (I know, get me! I’m one step away from appearing on the Graham Norton Show!) and tonight’s in particular on BBC Radio London was a very interesting topic and one that I’ve not covered and not even really thought about before. There’s a recent study done suggesting that … Continue reading Making the first move….
Happy New Year!! Today is known as ‘Dating Sunday’… basically all those single ‘New Year's Resolutioners’ (yes, I’ve made up that word) are more likely to sign up to a dating site or app today. They’ve had a week to think about it, settle back into life without daily mulled wine, mince pies and Quality … Continue reading Dating Sunday!💖
All I Want For Christmas is…
It’s the most wonderful time of the year… deck the halls and all that. It’s also the time of year that single people are writing Christmas cards to “Mr and Mrs X” or to favourite couple friends “Paul and Pauline”, adding their children “Peter and Pedro” (those names may or may not be made up…) … Continue reading All I Want For Christmas is…
It Started With A Swipe- the book!
So. I wrote a book. An entire book. How? When? I have no idea. It’s all very surreal… About three years ago when my professional online dating life began, I was going on holiday and decided I’d like to read a book about online dating- something I could relate to. However I could only find … Continue reading It Started With A Swipe- the book!
Best Date Ever!
Yesterday I had the greatest date day ever. It lasted 11 hours- it started with brunch and coffee, we then fell into the closest bar as it was heavily raining- it just so happened to be happy hour on cocktails at the bar- winner! We sat and had three (realistically it was four or five) … Continue reading Best Date Ever!
Romantic or Creepy?
Whilst scrolling through endless men on Plenty of Fish, I noticed something unusual. And trust me when I say I see a lot of unusual things on there… Rather than a photo of a guy, there was simply a picture that said “100% Missing you Claire” His ‘headline’ said “Waiting for your call Claire x” … Continue reading Romantic or Creepy?
Love is Evolving!
Evolve. That’s the name of a new app. However… it’s not a dating app. It’s the world’s first “DRM”- Dating and Relationship Manager. You basically put in details of your dates. You can add a photo of the person you’re dating, their name, age, whether you’re attracted to them, whether there’s any chemistry. You can … Continue reading Love is Evolving!
