Dating in 2022: Does Celibacy Before Marriage Still Exist?

The terminology, ‘celibacy’ is almost frowned upon today. “Why won’t you give out? I need to be able to try the goods before even contemplating anything more serious”, I’ve been told. What has happened to society? Today, social media is one of the main obstacles many relationships can’t successfully get past. It’s pretty clear the […]

‘The Valentine’ – Poem

Valentine, You see me as a shadow, If I belonged to someone else, would that ignite curiosity? My eyes twinkle, Does that reflect you or me? Feel me to clarify I’m yours, I’m you, but who am I? I scream, Birds singing as you gaze above, I’m here, only if you look hard enough. Make […]

The one thing holding you back is the price tag. But is the engineer’s dream your worst nightmare? I’m sure almost all of us have heard of the Dyson hair dryer. And the offensive price point of £300. Many of our vacuums aren’t worth that never mind hair dryer’s. Once you begin to get over […]

Can Men Have Female Friends?

Can Men Have Female Friends?

Girl meets boy, then they live platonically ever after. Isn’t that how the story goes? We’re all entitled to know what we want. Whether that’s in friendships or relationships, we set our own boundaries. What we will tolerate, and what factors are non-negotiable. Men having female friends? I think this is something many females just […]

Mentally Preparing for Lockdown Easing

In the UK, we’re still technically in lockdown. We can’t go into peoples houses, not supposed to travel unless for essential reasons, but we’re allowed a pint in the pub (outside seating of course).

The excitement is killing me… I hope you can sense sarcasm. In reality, who likes appointments? Especially ones that drag on for a week!
