Mika Doyle on PDA
There was a time in the not-so-distant past when online dating was considered taboo. Dangerous, even. One of the most common reasons people warned against it was because you never knew who was actually on the other end of those private messages you were getting. Nowadays that way of thinking seems antiquated; after all, we’ve all become web-savvy enough to navigate our way through what’s fake and...
Online Dating No No
Below is an article written by Huffington Post blogger Pamela Gross detailing 10 things that no-one wants to see on an online dating profile. I want to add a few things to this list: a) Negative statements - I really hate seeing people rant and moan about all the bad experiences they have had on their dating profiles and writing lists of things they don’t want. One guy wrote a whole...
Love and a Mercedez
It didn’t seem fair that I was having all this fun dating while my lonely, single friend suffered through a non-existent love life. So I decided that ,as a friendly gesture, I would help her find love in 2012. Although she had previously sworn that she would rather stay single than date, she jumped at the chance to be set up on dates. So, I conducted a ‘call’ with her to find out a bit more about...

Too Many Bellinis!
I was invited out by another match.com user to a restaurant in South Kensington. It didn’t start off well as I got lost trying to find the place. The hotel is tucked away discreetly in a quiet residential area. Not to mention it was in the evening, quite dark outside and I’m not great with directions. I wandered around the area and distracted myself by messaging a friend. “Don’t know where the...
Date with an Amateur Hypnotherapist
Yesterday I went on a date from Match.com. It was a last minute decision and I admit, as I wasn’t entirely sure about him, I was quite nervous beforehand and almost cancelled! Often a face-to-face meeting with someone you’ve only engaged with online takes getting used to, and even when you’ve been dating for a while, you can still feel nervous with every new person you meet. I called two of my...

London - Dating Scene - The Painted Heron
I recently went again to the Painted Heron in Chelsea. Indian food hardly seems like an obvious choice when it comes to setting up a date, but this restaurant is quite incredible in that respect. A chic staff, soft lights, well appointed tables make this restaurant ideal for a first date or an evening with your loved one. Even though the Painted Heron is elegant and original, it’s quite...
An Agent on a Mission
So I’m on a mission to find the love of my life. I’m not too sure what or who my dream man is but of course like every woman, I do have criteria that I’m not willing to be flexible on but I also have rules that can be bent every now and again. For instance, he has to be taller than me. Very superficial, I know, but I’m thinking genetics here and I’m just a humble 5’4. But, if he doesn’t quite...

The Dark Side of Dating
Dating - the often necessary route into companionship, love, or even a quickie. We’d all love dating to be stress-free, simple, easy etc but for most of us mere mortals, it’s not. It can be fun at the very best of times but it can also be annoying, tedious, nerve-wracking or a complete failure.
