Being fussy has been quite an incendiary topic on this blog, but in my opinion the older you get, the more aware you are of what works for you, and what doesn’t.Everyone’s desires and expectations are different, and the more life experience you get, the more you learn which expectations you’re happy to sacrifice, and which ones are actually necessities.
Another typical grammar school girl, she’d planned life landmarks in the same way she did her education and career, and is now finding herself behind her own plan in some ways. ) is that just because certain parts of her life haven’t gone the way she initially imagined, Miss32 hasn’t settled.
She knows what she wants, and despite havinf comfortably crossed the dreaded ‘3-0’ post, she hasn’t changed her expectations.
I wanted to be able to properly hear and see the people I was dating! Due to the limited numbers, I had at least five ‘dates’ where I was left on my own.
The dates themselves were far less structured than the Slow Dating event we attended last week.
Miss32 has stayed on the conveyor belt far longer than me.
She trained as an accountant straight after university, and is now well-established in her career.
My fears about not being ‘hip’ or ‘cool’ enough for the Shoreditch speed dating scene were unfounded. ) None of the dates seemed particularly artistic or alternative.
Arguably there were more ‘normal’ men than last week at Clapham, but once all ten men had done the rounds, both the Accountant and I remarked that yet again, we hadn’t really hit it off with anyone.
We were required to enter our email addresses onto a laptop in the corner (something which could have proved difficult for anyone buoyed by Dutch courage), and then hovered awkwardly around the tables.
