Dating in Lockdown; Virtual. Social. Distant.

Chapter 3b. Distant After our movie night date via Facetime I crawled into bed. I slipped out of my loungewear playsuit and washed my face as my phone lit up with a message. It was from Jay. “That was fun!” I smiled. It was fun…and unbelievably sweet. Literally distant but sweet. Damn distance. If onlyContinue reading “Dating in Lockdown; Virtual. Social. Distant.”

An unintentional hiatus and deleting dating apps

What the heck is a dating hiatus? Should I be on one? Am I on one? How long should it last? Is it a cult? Why does it sound like a Tinder flu? Urban Dictionary defines Hiatus as: A gap or interruption in time, or continuity; a break. A dating hiatus therefore means no online dating, noContinue reading “An unintentional hiatus and deleting dating apps”

The guys you meet on Tinder to make you jaded

Due to being even more ‘Jaded’ with dating, I have been on a bit of dating hiatus. No fuckboys, no cryptic text and no dating apps-including Tinder. Can you even imagine? In this day, if a single girl-no matter how long she is single is not on Tinder she must not want it enough. IfContinue reading “The guys you meet on Tinder to make you jaded”

I pure fancy you: The Science

“She began now to comprehend that he was exactly the man, who, in disposition and talents, would  most suit her. His understanding and temper, though unlike her own, would have answered all her wishes. It was a union that must have been to the advantage of both; by her ease and liveliness, his mind mightContinue reading “I pure fancy you: The Science”

This post is probably one of my favourites-second to Cat lady. I enjoyed writing this andContinue reading “My Stereotypes: Part 2”

The Cat Lady

Cats: They don’t talk-the-talk, they walk-the-walk I’m single and own a cat. I adore her. She is called Dusty and is utterly gorgeous (see below). My Instagram is 75% cat pictures. I happily sat through the ‘100 greatest cat photos’ while sipping coffee from my Marie (The cat from Aristocrats) mug. I admit that I amContinue reading “The Cat Lady”

The truth universally acknowledged in Courting and Dating

I once had a poll asking women if they were ‘Sex and the city’ women or ‘Jane Austen’ women and the result for being a lady of Austen times was 0%. Is this because Austen woman seem boring? They sat around their parents’ house playing the piano and sewing till the old age of 23Continue reading “The truth universally acknowledged in Courting and Dating”

My Stereotypes

I guess we all know the “types” of guys out there: The Player, The Mummy’s Boy, The Romantic, The Geek, The Macho guy…. These stereotypes tend to come from our favourite American Teen Movies which gave us insight into what the dating world would be like from the age of 16… I would also likeContinue reading “My Stereotypes”

Welcome to Jaded Dating

Welcome to my blog. Your first question is probably “Why is it called Jaded?” Well, apart from being a clever play on words as my name is Jade, this is a relationship blog and jaded is pretty much how us twenty-something girls (and guys too maybe) feel about the romantic quest. I found this definitionContinue reading “Welcome to Jaded Dating”
