It was Christmas Eve 2007. A while ago yes. But I remember it like it was yesterday. As I’m sure all you readers know, Christmas Eve in Australia is one hell of a night. Everyone is out having one much deserved drink before the Christmas break. And if you only see your friends once a year….its on Christmas eve. This was one of those nights. I had made my way to the local drinking hole with my current regular drinking partners in crime. We were having catch up after catch up after catch up. The bar was packed and everyone was gloriously happy. Continue reading

So what are my options? Is internet dating the only thing left? Continue reading
After a depressing week at work and finding out that an ex had just got engaged, I was more than keen for a boozy Friday Ladies Long Lunch to drown my sorrows.
So after a 34th birthday breakfast with 2 of my favourites, I was left thinking that maybe going on Tinder wasn’t such a bad idea.
