It’s really simple – a dating blog based on total honesty. I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my relationships, particularly when I was younger and continuing the theme of honesty, this is where a lot of my inspiration comes from. I never refer to myself as a dating expert, I strongly believe expertise are gained through experience and well that probably makes just about every single one of us an expert in some way. I think it’s important that men aren’t afraid to open up and that’s what I intend to do, the good stuff and the bad stuff.
To give you a little background on me I was born and bred in Glasgow and at 30 years old I’d say I’ve been something of a wanderer in my adult life, floating between university courses, jobs and of course relationships. In the past I’ve written for sports and music magazines and even had a short stint at a beer magazine. The subject of dating and relationships however, is something that affects every single one of us on a daily basis – whether you’re in a relationship, want one or are simply trying to avoid them, it’s always going to be a part of our lives. Dating is something I’m passionate about, that’s not to say I’m on a date every second night of the week, but I love the way we react to them, the way we build it up or play it down, the way we analyse every second of a date – I find it all fascinating.
The pipe dream for me is to move into documentaries. I’m greatly inspired by the likes of Dawn O’ Porter, Louis Theroux and Stacey Dooley and it would be a huge privilege for me to follow in their footsteps. In the meantime Blogging has completely transformed my career. I’ve went from walking ten miles to the job centre every day because I couldn’t afford to take the bus, to having newspaper columns and making TV and Radio appearances. Blogging changed everything for me and I urge anyone out there considering taking it up to just sit down and start writing – who knows where it will take you.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all of your comments and follows, no matter where in the world you are it honestly makes every second of writing completely worthwhile. I love meeting new people and hearing all of your amazing stories, some of which have been a source of further inspiration. Thank you for reading and always, always…keep in touch!
