Feedback

Recently I went on a slightly unusual date. I won’t go into details, but at the end of it I had the opportunity for something pretty unusual (at least in my own experience). No, not that, you filthy-minded reader; I got feedback from my date. After the bill had been paid we got the chance... Continue Reading →

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 →

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.

Online Shopping

I was chatting with someone the other day about online dating and we came up with an analogy (or is it a metaphor?) that was pretty much on point and addresses some of the major problems for people who, like me, are using digital tools to help them meet people.

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 →

Putting the Dad into Single Dad

Yesterday in the UK was Father’s Day, a typically overblown corporate sponsored event designed to shift boxer shorts, novelty ties and as many soft rock compilation CDs as possible. I celebrated it in as close to traditional style as possible – I was treated to breakfast in bed, got a few presents and went out... Continue Reading →
