Giving so much for so little?

Every relationship requires give-and-take between two people, this simply means both parties investing in each other and both getting something back from the relationship. However if one person is doing all the giving and the other just takes, then it isn't a relationship... at least not a fulfilling one. Have you ever gone above and [...]

Red flags? No thanks, I want the green flags please.

Relationships play a massive part of our lives, I can't think of anyone who wants to waste their time being unhappy and unfulfilled with the wrong partner. Most of us have had our fair share of drama and disasters in the past; so it's understandable if someone enters a new relationship with a slightly pessimistic [...]

A story of conflict: Growing up with strict Asian parents and having an interracial relationship.

This is by far one of the most difficult posts I've ever had to write... it's a sensitive subject, an extremely personal account and still to this day evokes so many negative emotions as I type. I can literally feel my heart tightening along with a slight rise in my blood pressure when I cast [...]

Platonic friendships: Can men and women really just be friends?

The eX-Files: Keeping memorabilia from past relationships.

Today I’m wondering… “Do you keep memorabilia from past relationships?” I think it’s a good question and I’m sure the answer varies from person to person. I honestly don’t. At least not on purpose. After a failed relationship, I purge anything and everything attached to an ex — especially if it was a bad relationship. [...]

Red flags: some people aren’t looking for love, they’re looking for help.

If I were to sit down and have a conversation with myself say… 6 months into each of my relationships, I would not only advise on what characteristics I needed to work on as a person but firmly tell myself to open my goddamn eyes and take a good look at what’s waving right in [...]

One Q&A + two sassy bloggers = love, sex and magic.

Happy weekend everyone! Hope you're enjoying the beautiful weather (Londoners) albeit windy! As if it wasn't hot enough already this week... I'm here to crank the heat up a notch or two with my very first (and very spicy) collaboration! Yessss this a Bank Holiday Special! So before I dive in, I want quickly give [...]

We’re not friends or enemies. Just strangers with some memories.

Being friends with exes, there's no universal rule. Research has shown that maintaining contact with exes is pretty common, but the motives for wanting to maintain contact should be thought out carefully. I've personally never had any desire to remain friends with a man I broke off a relationship with. There's a reason why I [...]
