I’m a 30 something single Adelaide woman, born & bred in the southern suburbs. I love travelling, music, socialising, going to the gym & live events!
Being unlucky in love comes easily for me but it’s not as fun as it used to be especially when all your friends pair off, so you no longer have anyone to go out with. But when you somehow do manage to pry these people away from their partners & go out to what used to be a cool night club, you walk in & the place is empty, everyone there looks about 12 & cannot walk in their high heels. You feel stupidly old & overdressed in a top & jeans that cover your bum & boobs, but then all your friends want to go home at midnight to their husband or boyfriend, while you end up in the back of a taxi drunk texting someone or worse you end up in the front of the taxi crying to the taxi driver that you are never going to find love & he barely understands your drunken English.
I think the worst part for me is my immediate family, I come from a family of ‘lifers‘ (as I call them), You know the types, my parents got married early teens – still together, brother met his now wife 15+ years ago – they have kids, my sister met her now husband like 20 years ago – they have kids… Me…? Well I can barely get a dude that I’m not even sure I like, to go on a second date with me!
I’ve had one real relationship in my 30+ years, which lasted 3.5 years. Even though it’s been many many years since we broke up, I fear he damaged me too much & that is why I have dating disaster after dating disaster, paired with a cliché after cliché from my friends. So many that I now have enough “funny” (according to my friends) antidotes to write a blog, so here I am!
Even though I will use pseudonyms for everyone in this blog, I’d really like to hear from guys that may think they are the guy or know the guy in these blogs & find out what actually happened in their mind. I happy to give them a right of reply, which I will publish if they want.
I am sure that there are other women out there, whether you’re in Adelaide or somewhere else in the world, who will relate to the things that I go through on a daily basis, who may feel alone but I hope that this will open your eyes to the fact that you are not alone, there are others out there & even though you keep meeting “Retards in Tin Foil“, I still believe there is a “Knight in Shining Armour” out there for all of us.
