Why do we rush relationships?

This is a question that has been on my mind recently. Why do we rush relationships? Push them and move them before we’re ready? Why aren’t we slowing down and enjoying the journey? The taste, feel and excitement of someone new. I think we can know fairly quickly if someone has the potential to be…

Violence and Women

I’ve been thinking about whether I actually wanted to write this blog for a few weeks. I know we could make this into a discussion about whether this should be violence in relationships but given i’m female this affects me on a personal level. What exactly do I mean when I say violence and women?…

Is Romance Dead?

Let’s talk about romance. What has happened in modern relationships where is feels like romance just does not exist? Romance in dating is completely dead. When was the last time a date showed up with flowers or chocolate? What happens when a date does try to be romantic? I recently dated a man and when…

I See Ghosts

I have been pondering a new dating trend, the devil art of ghosting. Online dating seems to bring out the worst in people. There seems to be a real disconnect in the way people relate to each other. People have stopped treating each other with respect and as human beings. I’m a big girl I…

Soulmates, take two

The other week I wrote about a man I met the instant connection we shared. It felt so sudden like i’d known him for many years. That’s when I started to wonder how these connections form and I asked the question, what is a soulmate? I believe I have my answer. A soulmate is someone…

Divorce at 40

Do you ever move on from someone you loved enough to marry? This last weekend was my wedding anniversary. Although I left the relationship I don’t think these things are any easier regardless of who ended the relationship. Very few people actually enter a marriage thinking it will end. It’s meant to be for life….

The 20 Something Guy

I have to ask a question, what is with 20 something guys? There has been a change since I was last single 10 years ago. I want to know what’s with the cougar chasing. Why is it now a thing? Did they all get together and vote? Or do they just think it’s a thing…

Soulmates?

I recently met a man. When I looked at him for the first time I knew i’d met someone special. It felt like we had known each other for years. This man makes me feel like i’m a teenager all over again. We talked for hours and it felt like minutes. It made me think…

The Joys of Dating – aka dating Fuckboys

I thought I would write a post of the joys of dating over 40 but then I realised a lot of the issues I see happen to women of all ages. I think this is why so many people settle in their relationships. Dating is HARD work! Personally I would rather be single for the…

Life Update

Lots of have happened over the last 5 months. I’m now officially single. This is a good and bad thing. I miss my family, I miss my boys. I do not miss the drama that comes with being married to man with mental health issues. I don’t think anyone truly appreciates how hard it is…

What About the Cougar?

Over the last few weeks i’ve been growing my social media presence.  How else do you get someone to read the things you write if they don’t know you’re there?  I started getting attention from younger males.  Ok that comes with the territory.  I’m a big girl I can handle it.  Just because someone pays…

Travel for work

I travel for work at least once a month.  I’ve got to be honest with you, I need it.  So much happens in my life, getting way from everyone helps.  I love my family but I love being on my own too.  Does this make me a bad person?  I don’t think it does but…
