Dating 101** Eight texts that cover off Sydney dating experiences

A typical Mars Vs Venus scenario that reigns true when dating a Sydney-sider (based on means tested situations with Sydney based guys and gals)


Dual thought process after a first date that wasn’t a complete disaster:



I really like him, he was such a gentleman, we really had the spark




Damn I held the door open for her and still didn’t get laid



Dual thought process the day after:



I definitely think I’ll hear from him, he said that “when we hang out again” and he was talking about his family and asking loads of questions




Hmmm do I want pizza or Mexican for dinner today?!


After neither has got a text after 3 days:



What if he got his phone stolen? What if he got on with me SO well that he’s freaked out and backed off? What if his memory got erased off his phone and now he has no way of contacting me?




Huh, maybe I’ll drop her a text


After receiving first text after first date:



I knew we had chemistry, I’m so excited for him to take me out again. He’s so not like the other guys I’ve been with!




Boom she text back, the 3 day rule always works! Now maybe I’ll get laid on date 2!


Text to friends as they’re on their way to date two




I’m so excited, I wore a nice skirt to show off my legs and covered up my cleavage as I don’t want to give too much away, I’m totally wearing natural make-up that took me 3 hours to do! Wish me luck!




Fingers crossed she’s showing off her tits, they’re awesome!


During date:




He’s being so nice to me, I might even stay over




She’s pretty fit, hopefully she’ll want to put out


The next morning:



On my god, he is the best person ever! I’m totally going to be with him. There were fireworks, chemistry it’s all so romantic!






A week later:




Can’t believe he’s not text or called, if he’s not into me the least he can do is just tell me rather than go AWOL… I’m a big girl. Urrghhh I hate men!




To another girl: “So when are you going to let me take you out babe?”


What my friends have to say on the matter…

Dating 101** We’re back!

Ok so it’s been a while since I’ve blogged on here, I figured I’ve stored up some pretty impressive gems over the past few months, along with a nice little stash of guest entries to add to the mix.


Having lived in Sydney for four and half years, I was starting to think that Sydney dating was a whole different kettle of fish to the rest of the world… Well, let me tell you that after a year away from Sydney throughout 2013, it isn’t! Unless I have a target on my head for moronic idiots, or people with a worrying disposition in terms of general life – it ain’t too great on t’other side of the pond either!


In a nutshell we have the following to update you on:


  • The egotistical TV presenter who left me alone at his friend’s quiz night on our first date…


  • The OCD letter counting (yes you read correctly) former drug addict (yup and again) who chose to reveal this little ‘trait’ on our sixth and final date…


  • The crazy guy of who started spouting Satanic ramblings about me being judged in my next life…


  • The guy who I thought seemed nice, but turned out to be renowned as the local coke head and general tool (news to me)…


Considering I only went on dates with six men last year… the stats aren’t looking great!


Well Dating 101 Sydney will be coming back with more content: recommended dating venues, first date ideas in Sydney, features on dating/ single life and much, much more!


I’m going to be taking a back seat when it comes to the dating blogs – think I’ve put you all through enough of that to last you a lifetime (I’ll part with the four posts I’ve alluded to above!)


I will however be hosting guest dating blogs and posts – so if you want to contribute, e-mail me


I look forward to hearing all your feedback and sharing stories with you.

Book review** How to Win Your Man & Keep Him

THE secrets of how to have a healthy relationship that lasts are revealed
in a new book by Brisbane author Geri Hemer.

“It’s easy to get a man but very hard to keep him,” Mrs Hemer said.

In her newly released book, *How to Win Your Man & Keep Him*, she provides
grounded advice to help women identify and maintain bliss in a lasting
relationship. The book contains essential tips on how to find and conquer

her husband Scott for about 20 years.

Some common mistakes women make in love is not looking after themselves,
going to bed in rollers, talking about their ex boyfriends, sitting on the
toilet with the door open, speaking with food in her mouths and shaving
their legs in front of their partners.

“There should be mystery in every woman,” Mrs Hemer said.

Some simple things a woman can do to please her man is smile and greet him
warmly when she sees him, text him at work and tell him what sexy things
she will do with him when he returns home and surprise him consistently by
dressing up or role playing.

and marital statuses. Topics covered include priming for the first
encounter, the first and succeeding dates, winning his friends, getting

Most Aussie men think relationship equality exists…most Aussie women don’t

Online survey findings ahead of International Women’s Day tomorrow, give me strength!!

On the eve of this year’s International Women’s Day, the theme of which is gender equality, a survey has found that most Australian men view their female partner as their relationship equal but most Australian women do not see themselves like that.

Online dating site Victoria Milan asked its Australian members what they think is the role of the woman in their relationship. A total of 1,745 people responded, with 55 per cent of males saying that their female partners had an independent, modern role that was equal to theirs, whereas only 33% of women said that of themselves.

“Australia has a female Prime Minister, a female Governor-General and females in many other important jobs but two thirds of Aussie women think their role in their relationship is not equal to that of their man,” said Mark Worwood, Australian Country Manager of Victoria Milan, an online dating site designed specifically for married and otherwise attached adults seeking a discreet flirt or real-life affair.

“Victoria Milan believes in relationship gender equality, providing a safe, anonymous and confidential online environment both Aussie men and women can use to seek an innocent web flirt, a casual one-night stand or a long-term love affair.”

I’m sure that’s not all it would be!!! If you don’t want to be in a relationship… Don’t be In one we say!! is Australia’s new infidelity site whose tagline is relive the passion, find your affair. Founded in Norway in October 2010 by happily married Sigurd Vedal, Victoria Milan is an online dating site designed specifically for married and otherwise attached adults seeking a discreet flirt or real-life affair. Currently Victoria Milan has more than 2,000,000 members in 19 countries worldwide.
