Oh bop, fashion!

You need to just stop
Like can you just not step on my gown?
You need to calm down

Recalibrate the Universe

I loved watching the series, “Modern Love” which is inspired by real-life stories of love in many different forms. Love at first sight, friendship, navigating dating, the one-that-got-away, marriage counselling, grieving, families and more.

Vetty vs. dating

It’s been over a year since I summoned up the courage to ‘put myself out there’ by online dating. Please, no medal for bravery required, but I do appreciate the sentiment. It did involve the challenges of leaving the house, trying to look nice and talking to strangers. Here’s what I learned from 13 firstContinue reading “Vetty vs. dating”

Put yourself out there

It can be scary being visible. Especially when your default setting is hide behind the pot plant. I love to write-to write-to write but the sharing-is-caring part was trickier. One night in late September 2016 (I think it was a Thursday), I woke up and sat bolt upright. I had an idea, “A personal blogContinue reading “Put yourself out there”

Have Mercy!

Have mercy! This is the catch cry of Uncle Jesse (the seemingly ageless John Stamos) in Full House. Gotta love comedy catchphrases. Cut. It. Out. Come on now. TBH, DJ was my hero back in the day.  But, as I often do, I’m linking this piece of pop culture to something self-helpY. Liz Gilbert, warm andContinue reading “Have Mercy!”

Am I good luck Chuck?

Every man I’ve dated in my foray into the online dating world seems to have ended up in a committed relationship with a special someone they met after going on a date with me. This has me thinking…am I good luck Chuck? In the quality 2007 movie “Good Luck Chuck”, all Charlie’s ex-girlfriends find trueContinue reading “Am I good luck Chuck?”

I ship us

Part 1 of 2 No man is an island (apparently) and relationships with others are inevitable. But negotiating these can sometimes be a minefield. Does he like me? Is she mad at me? Why are they always too busy? I said I was FINE! How can we navigate the sometimes stormy seas in our relationContinue reading “I ship us”

Sliding Doors

Do you ever wonder what might have been had you made a different choice in the moment? Like, if you hadn’t missed that train would you have stayed in a crappy relationship selling sandwiches in an office rather than hooking up with the spritely Scottish guy from ‘Four Weddings and A Funeral’ and getting aContinue reading “Sliding Doors”

Love Bombing

I usually say oms not bombs but I’d change my tune for love bombs. Everything is better showered in and softened by love bomb dust. The boffins at insta must’ve been reading my mind when they created the ‘Heart Eyes’ filter. You can’t help but feel loved-up when you imagine love arrows and hearts comingContinue reading “Love Bombing”

Wholeheartedly

Are you being guided by your heart or by your head? Love or fear? Feelings or thoughts? I think of my heart and head as the original odd couple. You’d think they’d be able to agree on things, but like Ernie and Bert, they often have different perspectives and agendas. Sometimes hilarity ensues when Ernie/Continue reading “Wholeheartedly”
