The Spaghetti Ceiling Date Brixton

The Park Date – “Grape?”

This date was different in the sense “V” knew about my blog and had read all of my previous dating posts. We had talked quite a bit over Twitter, she had read and appeared to enjoy my blogs, in particular the Remote Egg post that seemed to tickle her. We arranged to meet up at the […]

Camden Crunch Choas

You may remember “A” from my Saturday 6 date weekend post.  After a slightly crazy date in Brixton, although cut short for the drunken encounter, we’d had a great time so arranged to meet up the following Friday.

Six Date Weekend – Sunday

I wake up in the early hours of Sunday morning with “M” both still very….. damaged….. from the night before.  She lived in a basement apartment in Crystal Palace.  I’m suffering a bit from hang over sweats so drag myself off for a cold shower.  As I return, half way between the bathroom and her […]

The Vibrating Egg Date

I got talking with Laura (not her real name) on OK Cupid, we exchanged a few messages and swap numbers almost straight away. She was a tall red headed lawyer from The City, perfect…. Intelligence and looks, quite rare to get them both especially from internet dating it seems.  Usually you get a goddess with two […]

The American Connection Part 2

After my first date with “E” I was left a little shell shocked, I hadn’t been expecting things to go so well.  Not long out of my last long term relationship was I really looking to progress into another? I found myself texting E telling her that whilst I really enjoyed our first date, I […]
