I’d do well in America…

As mentioned on a previous blog post, recently I went on a work trip to Washington DC for work. It was only for four days, landing on a Monday afternoon and then flying home on the Thursday night, but was due to give me the chance to both learn something new for work as well... Continue Reading →

Why do I prefer being in a couple?

I'm discovering more and more dating and relationship blogs as I spend more time in the dating world, and some of them are pretty good. Okay, not all of them, but there are some corkers out there for sure. One of those I've signed up to and enjoy is Becauseysheblogs, which is from the perspective... Continue Reading →

Are all women evil?

The internet is a brilliant place. Some corners of it are a little bit weird, but for every corner filled with pictures of cows in feather boas, there is another which is full of supportive people helping each other out.

A Practically Perfect Partner

I am a lucky man when it comes to my kids. Through the whole divorce process and settling into life as a new family unit they’ve never wavered from their core belief that they are now and will always be the most important things in my life. They know how happy and proud they make... Continue Reading →

To Kiss or Not To Kiss

There are many challenges to overcome when it comes to being an extroverted introvert on a first date. Knowing what to wear, knowing where to go, knowing how much to listen and how much to introduce unprompted, knowing whether to bring up how much I enjoy science fiction or not. But all of those are... Continue Reading →
