Do You Ever Get Over Your First Love?

Do you ever get over your first love?

There are 3 reasons that compelled me to write this blog – 1. I had a discussion with Tamara where we were talking about first loves and how we would feel if they resurfaced after all this time. Even though we felt we were both over them, we both said that we would definitely meet up with them again. 2. I have been home for a week sick like a dog with flu/sinusitis. I have been watching Ricki Lake more or less every day. Today there was a woman who came to confront her high school boyfriend for denying her. She was married with a kid and still wanted closure! She kept asking, “Why did you do that to me? Ten years later!

You Man Is Shacked Up With Another Chick

My friend (Theresa) lives with her guy friend (Tommy). She rents a room from him. They live together in a two bedroom house in Manchester. Tommy has a girlfriend that he has been going out with for the past 8 months, lets call her Melinda. Melinda has an 8 year old little girl and they come up to Manchester every other weekend to visit. Melinda and Tommy are kinda serious. So serious that Melinda suggested to Tommy that they move in together. Somehow a misunderstanding occured and Melinda was under the impression that Tommy wanted her to move in with him.

Ending A Relationship

There is a story behind my relationship with Thirteen. It was my unlucky number. Every Friday the 13th, fear of impending doom would consume me, and I must say it was irrational as nothing bad had ever happened to me on any Friday the 13th, but still the fear was real. Thirteen was my enemy. I hated him/her (Thirteen is a hermaphrodite… super-gendered.) I knew that this fear was irrational but somehow I had internalised that it was an unlucky day and 13 an unlucky number and couldn’t escape that feeling.

From Homewrecker To Lesbian

I am working with the woman who had the gallstones removed again. You may remember her from MARK MORRISON IS TOO BLACK or I HATE NAPPY HAIR fame. Since I have been working with her again she has been hinting that I am having an affair with a married colleague of mine. He and I were in Brazil together so of course tongues started wagging.

What Are Your Limits When You Are Married?

One day Deborah and I were at the hotel bar and restaurant with Richard (the guy who was on our plane and staying at the same hotel). We were eating and drinking. At one point Richard got up and went somewhere for about 5-10 minutes. When he came walking back to the table he was with Matthew. We were wondering how he and Richard knew each other. . . Well it turns out that they didn’t know each other. Richard had been near the front entrance fraternising with the security guards as Matthew had walked into the hotel.

A Pregnant Bride and Bridesmaids In Red Dresses

Pregnant Bride

I got home at 4 am on Saturday morning and had to wake up at 9 in order to meet Caroline for 10.30 to go and get fitted for my Bridesmaid dress with her sister and Rebecca. We all turned up about half an hour late, which the ladies in the shop appeared to be highly unimpressed by. None of the dresses fit, we couldn’t agree on anything and the lady kept pinning things and telling us to “imagine” Fuck that! Who wants to pay £200 on a dress and all you can do is “imagine” what it looks like.

Internet Dating

Internet Dating

Is a dating site a suitable place for a girl in her mid twenties to find a decent man? I personally wouldn’t do it because of the pressure. Joining a dating site says, “I want a man now!” When you meet someone you don’t have a chance to get to know them and make up your mind about them because you have said that that’s what you want and they will assume that you want them. Imagine you meet someone and they check all the boxes but you just aren’t feeling them, how do you explain that to them? Then there is the whole thing of going on awful dates in the first place… that to me is not fun at all! What if you want to leave half way? How do you do it?

Tina and Eddie met again accidentally in a bar for the first time in years. The chemistry was instant and they were soon joined at the hip. Throughout the years Tina had maintained a firm friendship with Bryony, and now that she and Eddie were an item she was reluctant to tell Bryony about it until they were really serious. She thought that in Eddie she had found her dream man. She dreamed of becoming his wife, building a home, and having children with him It was very much a whirlwind romance, HOWEVER THE WARNING SIGNS that he was not the ideal man for her were there from the very beginning…

Hello Pussy

Brixton Train Platform

Last night I was standing on the train platform waiting for my train home in the subzero British weather and my phone rang. Before I had the chance to say hello… My ears witnessed an emotional torrent. It was Ruth, shrieking down the phone in an incensed manner, “He said Hello Pussy… can you believe it??? HELLO PUSSY!!!” I had left her a few minutes previously and in this short space of time a random man took it upon himself to bestow upon her a “Hello Pussy” greeting. What kind of man greets a woman like this?

Ying Yang Twins Whispering Is Sexy

Ying Yang Twins

Now ain’t that some shit! A seemingly decent young woman uttering such obscene language. This just shows that you can never judge a book by its cover. Behind seemingly innocent faces often lurk, a persona that goes weak at the knees on the appearance of unwashed dreadlocks, incoherent sentences and metallic breath. You learn something new every day. Acting as if you are illiterate, brandishing a mouth full of hot metal and “whispering” graphic sexual language as though you have emphysema and are high on crack is not sexy. Well not to me anyway, but apparently to Ruth it is.
