As a singleton in 2014, Facebook is a key social hurdle to navigate in the early stages of a relationship. Do you really want someone you're getting to know to have access to details of the last ten years of your life? Should you see photos of his parents, friends and siblings before you actually meet them?

Put simply, traditional dating websites and singles events are normally full of hot women, but completely lacking in sociable, attractive guys. Like most women my age, I'd rather be single than in a relationship with the wrong person.

At the end of the day everybody wants to know whether the person's into them or not, right? As a guy we're no different. If a girl doesn't like me, I just want her to come out and say she'd "rather be friends" or "please stop hanging out in front of my flat, I've already notified the police". In this day and age, though, it's never that simple.

I am going to be upfront about this. Cancer is a great way to weed out the duffs. To sift the men from the boys. It really reveals what type of partner you have and the true nature of your relationship. Granted, it might be a little radical as a strategy of choice. But as I had always been a bit of a beacon for dysfunctional men, I am more than a little happy with my experiment!

Could that perfectly timed phone call REALLY have been that 'important'? There's many more controversial/offensive ways to describe him emptying his sack quicker than Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, but they all mean the same thing.

Football: I remember a very miserable afternoon - a rainy Saturday - spent in a pub that smelled of cauliflower and dog, staring with great concentration at a TV up on the wall.

Last year was my year for getting back out there and I still laugh about how many men I had on the go at any one time. My antics became so notorious at work that every day at 5pm a group of girls would make their way surreptitiously to my desk for a daily update. As well as Serge, the Stuntman, Email Sex Pest and Posho I made a brief foray onto an internet dating site.
