Guest Post: A Date With Lucy

If you follow @lucygoesdating on Twitter, you may be aware that last week she went on a date with a man from Bumble. Which, given how utterly useless most men from Bumble are, is an event in itself. But even more extraordinary than that is the fact that this particular… View Post

Lucy Goes… Singles Wine Tasting

After months with no dates, Lucy decides that if she’s ever going to get laid again, she needs to take action. Despite the bullshit crap that well-meaning morons spout – it’ll happen when you least expect it; stop looking for love and let it find you – the awful truth… 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
Lucy Goes… Speed Dating

Lucy Goes… Speed Dating

Lucy is fucking fed up. She’s now spent four cunting years swiping her way through the men of London, with absolutely zero success. Lucy has no bastard clue how some people can join dating apps, go on just one or two dates, and find a partner – but whatever their… View Post

The Argentinian

Now that things are over with Charlie, it’s time for Lucy to get back in the dating game. Well they do say the best way to get over someone is to get under someone else, right? And where better to find someone to get enthusiastically under than good ol’ Tinder?… View Post

Mr Non-Monogamous, Part 12 – Decline

A year ago, Lucy went to a house party and met a devilishly sexy non-monogamous man named Charlie. Despite the fact that Charlie’s not only in an open relationship but also actually getting married to another woman, Lucy’s somehow ended up in a relationship with him. Which is (a) lovely,… View Post

To All The Boys I’ve Shagged Before

It’s funny how one comment from a dumbass troll can inspire an entire blog post, but that’s sometimes how life works. Put enough shit down, and roses will grow. A few weeks ago Lucy was featured in The Metro newspaper. In response, a person calling themselves ‘Plato’s Ghost’ sent her… View Post

The Tall Guy, Part 3 – Cinema

Lucy’s had one date with Simon, a tall, handsome man she found on OKCupid. A few years older than Lucy, with no kids, a stable job and excellent hair, on paper Simon seemed perfect. Via WhatsApp he was chatty, flirty and interested in her, he didn’t send any toe-curling photos,… View Post

Mr Non-Monogamous, Part 9 – Unprotected

Terminally single, diehard monogamous Lucy has accidentally ended up in a relationship-of-sorts with Charlie, a sexy 40-year-old lawyer who’s polyamorous and planning a wedding to his partner of three years. Yeah, I know, total headfuck. To find out how it happened, start from the top here or read what happened… View Post

The Geography Teacher, Part 5 – Revision

Lucy’s been on four dates with Josh, the quirky but disarmingly decent Geography teacher.  Three of these have been amusing evenings in various London drinking establishments, and the fourth was an awkward home visit which, after a sufficient quantity of wine had been consumed, turned into an entertaining (but not… View Post

The Geography Teacher, Part 4 – Private Lesson

Since Lucy’s clearly not going to get anywhere with Jack, her handsome work crush (at least not for now), she turns her attention back to Josh, the sweet but slightly eccentric Geography teacher from Northampton with whom she’s had three dates. If you need a recap on what happened last… View Post
The One with the Teeth

The One with the Teeth

Lucy’s had two dates with Josh the Geography Teacher, and while they went well enough, she’s still far from sure if this is going to be an actual thing.  So when Josh goes away for a week she decides to set up another date.  Just in case, you know, he… View Post

The Geography Teacher, Part 1 – First Encounter

It’s been a week or so since the bitter disappointment of the so-near-and-yet-so-far encounter with Ben from Twitter, so Lucy decides that, in an attempt to Keep Calm And Carry On, she will go back onto Guardian Soulmates to see if she can find a replacement.  Or better yet, an… View Post

The Textlationship, Part 4 – Missed Chance

Lucy’s been talking to Ben, who slid into her DMs on Twitter and miraculously turned out not to be a creepy stalker at all, but actually a charming, intelligent, thoughtful, sensitive, and all-round lovely guy. To catch up from the beginning, go to Part 1 – Approach, or for last… View Post
