So Christmas is over and it’s been good seeing family and having a break from dating. I say break but I’m still chatting to a number of potential suitors. Important to line them up for my return.

Awkward with a Capital A
I’ve got just over an hour until I set off for my flight back to the UK and wondered if I could squish in one more story of how my last week has been. I managed to fit in two more dates for the pure hell of it. I actually could have gone on a…Read More
The Role Play Turned Bad
I mentioned at the end of my last post that I had a sordid little story to share, one from the past. The guy in question had been in touch and asked if I wanted to see him while I was back in the UK. Well here is the story. I used to be married.…Read More

You Slept with a Transexual?
So in my last story I mentioned Laurence and said that this was a story in itself. So here it is. Laurence and I met on Bumble. I’m actually not sure why I swiped right on his profile. He didn’t have the particular look I go for and his profile mentioned climbing trees, I’m not…Read More
