‘Single But Dating’ Excerpt: Mindful Dating

This is an excerpt from the book ‘Single But Dating’ The question is how would your life be transformed if you chose to love this time for once with all your intelligence? —Cheryl Strayed Too many times very early in the process of getting to know someone, I would start to consider crazy and impossible-to-tell things like whether a person was right to be in an official relationship with, whether I saw a future with them, if I could marry them or have children with them, what my parents would think and so on. I didn’t end up enjoying their company and I wasn’t even able to get to know them because I was too busy imagining the hypothetical future. If you are like me, then this is a habit that you need to break ASAP. Learning how to just date a guy without wondering from the get-go about a…

Want to meet a man? Get a dog!

Today/yesterday after waking up feeling exhausted with jet lag, it was time to get my body and mind going, which meant one thing – go for a hike. My friend suggested I take her dog Daisy and overcome my fear of picking up dog poo (there is just something about the texture that freaks me out). If you have never hiked Runyon before, it’s full of attractive people with dogs, especially topless men and this day was no exception. I’m not a perve, only human. How can you not have a glance when these glistening toned bodies walk past? Now, as a relationship and dating expert, so many people complain to me about where to meet men.

They say you should chase your dreams but no one warns you how hard chasing your dreams can be. They say you can do anything, but forget to tell you that anything comes with a lot of crap too. I have just landed in LA for what feels like my thousandth time to launch my book ‘Single But Dating.’ But this didn’t happen overnight, in fact this has probably been the past 5 years in the making. I always knew I wanted to write a book, what I didn’t realise is how much I would love writing this book. Not just for the process but what you are able to bring into other’s lives. In this online world, there is something so beautiful about the printed word and something that can’t be destroyed by a virus or lost password. When I first wrote ‘Single But Dating’, I was fulfilling a…

How to get the spark back in your relationship

I had the privilege of being a guest on the show, The Last Resort, where couples are given a month to decide if they will stay together or not. Whilst heading to an Island to talk about my fave subject sex, which is not such a bad gig, what I loved the most was that the issues we were dealing with were very much a representation of what so many couples experience. And it has to do with one important word – intimacy. When it comes to trying to spice things up, people often turn to the type of sex they are having, how many times they are having it and if orgasms are present. But does it mean if these things are solved that the spice and even satisfaction is what couples will achieve? What I noticed in my short but sweet time with the contestants on this show…
