A Tinder Hook-up From An Inexperienced Girl’s Perspective

We matched on Tinder at 8 pm on a Friday night, yet he didn't message me. So I messaged him. Hey. He replied after a few minutes. Hey. And our conversation started.

When He Says He Could Spend the Rest of His Life With You

He always told me the truth. At the end of his confession, he said, “If you just give me time, I’m going to come up with the money and buy you a ring. If I don’t marry you, who will I marry? I could spend the rest of my life with you. I’ll never stop loving you.”

To My Almost Relationship

Before you, I believed I was afraid of commitment. I tried online dating for a while, swiping into frustration and deleting my profiles after three days of connecting with guys and only occasionally talking.

Here’s The Truth About What Men And Women Really Want In Love

Once you know the way your partner thinks and how they express their love, you will know what's the important thing to look for and how to meet your partner's needs.

What My Lovers Told Me

My lovers told me a lot of things -- mostly things about myself that I didn't realise I had or lacked thereof. Or things about themselves that I didn't anticipate or could have anticipated but chose not to. Sometimes they were just passing comments that my lovers would very soon conveniently forget but somehow they got stuck at the back of my mind.

When He Texts “Hey You”

You double tap one photo, then two. You drop a friendly comment. A few minutes later, your phone screen lights up with a text message from him -- Hey you! -- as though you're two good friends just catching up, no big deal.

Please Swipe Left On Me

I don't see relationships as an end-goal or a measure of my self-worth. Speaking of which, I don't bring my self-worth into the mix when a relationship succeeds or fails. I know the outcome of a relationship is down to our compatibility, not worthiness -- worthiness is irrelevant.

One Day You Won’t Have To Be The Only One Holding On Anymore

You won't have to freeze time as they kiss you goodbye at the train station before work as it might be the very last kiss ever had between you two. You won't have to watch them till they disappear (back) into the sea of strangers as it might be the very last sight of them in this short life you will never fully figure out.
