10 Things Men Wish You Knew…About Dating Profiles

Online dating has morphed into such a beast, you almost have to ‘market’ yourself to cut through the clutter. I liken having a great profile to making a great first impression - it’s something you get to do once. I’m not suggesting you need to ‘market’ yourself at all, it suggests a deceiving pre-tense. However, I do believe in presenting the best version of your authentic self. Having spoken to dozens of men on this topic, I’ve rounded up 10…

How to Get Along with Anyone

It doesn’t matter where you go, where you live or who you work with - there will always be someone you don’t get along with. This could be a family member, a colleague or a friend in your social circle. I’ve learned, if you don’t find a way to cope with them, the same type of person will keep coming into your life to teach you that same lesson. So how do you get along with someone you don’t like?…

The Male Bashing Has GOT To Stop

When it comes to dating, the men I speak to don’t have it easy. Not only do they have the pressure of asking a girl out [yes, even if it’s done online - the fear of rejection is still real], they then have to convince them that they’re not like the other ‘dickheads’ she’s dated before. They feel like they’re being punished for things other men have done - and I don’t blame them. This is a typical dialogue I…

I Used to Be Ashamed of Being Single

28. That was the age I started to feel embarrassed when I had to tell people I was single. Despite having moved overseas and landing on my feet with a great job, all my friends and family wanted to know was whether I had found a husband. While all my friends were settling down, getting engaged and having babies, I was spending week nights AND weekends partying with backpackers in Bondi. Every time I logged onto Facebook, I’d be welcomed…

The 3 Things Supportive Partners Do

I confess - if you were to spend most week nights with me, I am no fun. I sit in front of my laptop, tune out the background noise and write. I don’t speak whilst I’m doing this so the only thing you’d hear from me is the sound of the keyboard. But my husband-to-be is fine with this 95% of the time - and it’s one of the many reasons I’m marrying him. Where so many partners would call…

A Special Giveaway – Jord Wood Watches

I don't do this often but every once in awhile I'll come across a great find to share with you. I've been searching for a watch for months now and while I love rose gold, I couldn't find anything that looked good with most of my clothes. My friends at Jord introduced me to their wooden watches last month and I'm in love. Pictures may not do it justice but I love that their designs are quite unisex and neutral in colour.…

When You’ve Lost Yourself In a Relationship

I wrote this for a beautiful soul who’s just come out of a relationship. I’m independent and never thought I’d ever rely on a man…until I came out of a 2+ year relationship and realised how dependent I actually was. When you fall into a relationship, two lives have a sneaky way of merging into one - homes, friends, schedules, families. You don’t realise how intertwined your lives are until you try to separate them in the aftermath. So how…

12 Qualities of My Girlfriend That Make Me Want to Be Her Husband

Guest Contributor: Sebastian Harris She is amazing. I know, the word amazing is used quite recklessly nowadays, but I honestly can’t think of any other word to describe my girlfriend. Oh wait, I can think of loving, supportive and wonderful.  I met my girlfriend at a time when I didn’t intend to end up in a relationship. In fact, I promised myself to stay away from anything too serious. I wanted to have fun and any form of commitment seemed…
