Come a Little Closer

For the last few months I can’t get Rihanna’s song Stay (feat. Mikky Ekko) out of head. Strangely, I’m not thinking about a particular guy when I hear this song. It’s more to do with the general desire to be in a committed relationship. I know this is natural, but I’d really like to be content with myself. Most days I am, but some days like today, I’m not as I’m starting to find it exhausting to go through life alone. Sure one can be self-sufficient, but it would be good to have someone around who provides unconditional love and […]

Singledom

Yet another Valentine’s Day finds me single and I’m really starting to question my decision to remain in London. The weather is less than glorious, it’s rather expensive so I can’t afford to live in my desired area Notting Hill and I’m eternally single. Granted I’m not the social butterfly I should be, but even when I’m out and about, I still don’t get approached. As for finding love online, well I probably should revisit, but previous attempts didn’t bring forth any decent suitors and so not excited about trying again. It’s all rather frustrating and I’m seriously questioning whether […]

We All Want Love

Thankfully, I have never been in a physically abusive relationship. But I have unfortunately been in some emotionally abusive ones. And so I’m somewhat sympathetic with Rihanna who is clearly still in love with Chris Brown. Where it not for the media, I’m sure they’d still be together.

But are celebrities like her really the appropriate role models for love and living a good […]

One And Only

Oh to be in love with someone, but be afraid to truly let them in.

Longing For The Future

I still think of SalsaMan and I’m totally annoyed by that. Irritated because he was only in my life for a short period of time so really – what is this longing? I don’t really think it’s for him personally but more what he represented. That being, the future filled with laughter, a wider circle of friends and an extended family. He came on strong offering all of that and much more and then snatched it back. How cruel. But annoyed as I am by the situation, I can’t bring myself to call him. Well actually, I can’t anymore because […]
