10 Reasons Why Lockdown Is Shit If You’re Single

Lockdown. It’s a bitch, isn’t it? Can’t go to the pub, can’t see your friends, trapped inside your four walls unable to decide between watching Buffy again from the beginning or having your fourth wank of the day, having to queue outside Sainsbury’s for over an hour getting breathed on… View Post

Lucy Overthinks: Should You Use Twitter As A Dating Site?

Dating apps are shit. Everyone knows it. Hours of swiping on lazy, grotesque or illiterate profiles that make you despair for the future of the human race.

Today’s guest post is a very personal (and hot!) confession from The Silver Salmon @Dr_Allen80 Craiglist may have been a cesspit full of opportunist money grabbers and sex workers, but it did have at its core a group of kinky weirdos that just wanted to enjoy the freedom of indulging… View Post
The Blind Date

The Blind Date

It’s a Thursday, and Lucy has an Actual Blind Date. With a faceless, nameless, completely anonymous stranger. Someone who might be the man of her dreams. Or a potato. The date has been arranged by Jordi, whom she met at the Smudged Lipstick Connect 4 Dating Event. As well as… View Post
