When I was younger, I just assumed that all romantic relationships were monogamous, and that as soon as you had the boyfriend / girlfriend conversation you would only be with that person. Because that’s the reality that society, TV, and the film industry sells to you. I did have a couple of relationships in myContinue reading “Goodbye Monogamy Hello Polyamory”
I went back on OkCupid because in no particular order:
I don’t learn my lessons. 2. Sex.
I started talking to a guy called Jack. We texted quite a lot before meeting, bonding over our mutual love of Peep Show, Venn diagrams, and roller-coasters
Our first date was the best date I’ve ever had. We went ice skating at Ally Pally ice rink. We got there too early, so walked around the gardens first. I fancied him as soon as I saw him, and I could tell he fancied me too.
I started to realise the double standards around anal, and how some men were expecting us to be willing to be fucked in the arse, when some of them would freak out if you even tried to put a finger in there.
On Friday night I went to see ‘How to Date a Feminist’ at the Arcola Theatre. I’ve just started a programme called ‘The Artist’s Way’, all about releasing your creativity, which involves taking your inner artist on a date once a week. I often go to things alone anyway, as I enjoy (often prefer) myContinue reading “How to Date a Feminist”
Okay so he wasn’t THAT old. He was 37. But given that I almost exclusively go for men in their twenties, he was fucking ancient in comparison. We met on Tinder and had been chatting for about a week. We arranged to meet at King’s Cross on Wednesday at 2pm and go for coffee. HeContinue reading “Date with an older man (Fleabag, pizza, and murder)”
Last week on Thursday the 3rd of November, the Tory rang me to say we should ‘knock it on the head’ because he didn’t want me to be his girlfriend. 5 years’ ago on the exact SAME DATE the guy I was seeing at the time came over to tell me that he didn’t wantContinue reading “My Own Hard Brexit”
Last week was spent mostly working at Frieze art fair (outside) being a hostess, so by Saturday evening I was ready to have some fun! The Tory I’ve been seeing recently wanted us to go bowling, which I thought was a great idea, as I love nothing more than competitive activities. We were going toContinue reading “Date with a Tory part 2 (we went bowling in the arcade)”
On Friday, I did my first half an hour show as part of Laugh or Cry Presents Cruel Brittania, and I invited a date. I had met this person the week before at a friend’s birthday and we had some pretty good chemistry. Mainly because, well, he’s a Tory Brexiteer and I’m a Labour Remainer.Continue reading “Date with a Tory”
On Saturday I was on my way to do Shaggers at Leicester Square Theatre when I got a message from a guy I’ve been talking to from Tinder asking to meet up that evening. I did initially invite him to the gig, although I’m quite glad he didn’t come now… He suggested we meet atContinue reading “Date at the Tate”
