So I saw this profile on Tinder. The name was right, the age was a couple of years younger than the truth and there were no face pictures, just a picture of a guy in a panda suit. It was not the kind of profile I would ever match with, but the bio sure sounded familiar:…Read more 146. The Toolman rises from the dead
I expected to hear from The Captain all day on Monday, and my girlfriends checked in all day long to find out if he had called. He did not. On Tuesday I had enough waiting and took control, sending him a message. “Hi there. Do you have some time to chat today?" “Sorry busy atm…I’ll…Read more 142. The Captain returns…continued
I matched on a dating app with a 35 year old guy who was a chef on oil rigs. He told me he worked three weeks on the rig, then flew home for a three week break, during which time he helped out a friend who owned a restaurant. He was strange on our chats, but…Read more 126.

I knew it wasn’t right. And I knew this was going to hurt him. And it made me feel like shit.

Many of my friends are ex-work colleagues who know my value and can’t believe the nonsense I am…Read more 118. A little self examination
As I waited for my flight to depart I got a message from The Boy Next Door. For some reason he was telling me all about his new 50 year old divorced neighbour who just moved in and he had fucked on the first day he met her. That Boy has never heard the phrase…Read more 115. Daydream or nightmare?
Its been a mere week since my last contact with The Toolman. While there is part of me that still fantasises about him growing the balls required to mend fences with me, I have to get some perspective. I decided this week to delete my dating apps again. Every time a guy sent me a message…Read more 108. The Lessons
