    What To Do When Your Date Drops A Bombshell

    Content warning : I chat about mental health and suicide - hopefully helping people feel more at ease about talking to someone when they need help, and what to do if the person they talk to is you. Another day, another match. This time with Fijian photographer, ‘James’. We messaged for

    The Definitely Not Good, The Bad & The Ugly Of Tinder Messages

    Being a woman and active on dating apps can be 'interesting'...for want of a better word. The opening messages you receive from thirsty internet randoms can vary from utterly boring, painfully cringeworthy to outright fucked up. And I've had my fair share of all of the above. 1. Nudes?

    Top Ten First Date Ideas

    I don't know about you, but fuck me, I am SO bored of 'let's grab a couple of drinks' dates. I mean, I get it. It's not too daunting, it's an easy way to get to know someone and there's the opportunity to get tipsy enough to banish any nerves

    A Dating Column With A Difference

    31-year-old single woman seeks a man who is more than just a bearded, puppy holding, guitar playing, ‘easy going guy’. Or a woman who doesn’t have a Snapchat filter permanently attached to their face. Hi, I’m Iona and when it comes to dating - I’ve just about
