A little while ago, I was approached by a very nice lady from Metro.co.uk – the online face of London’s Metro newspaper – and asked to write a first-person piece about being a dating blogger.
It was an exciting but scary request. It’s one thing to have my personal life interrogated and often judged by the small corner of Twitter where I currently hang out. But it’s quite another to step out into the fast lane to be mown down by some of the 12 million people who currently visit the Metro’s website every month. Twelve million people!
But I said yes anyway. Because why not? What followed was a lot of writing, several requests for more information, and two awkward photoshoots with the help of a very patient friend. But we got there eventually, and so, without further ado, here it is! Hope you like it…
