Thank You Helen Fielding For Acknowledging Widows

Endeavour Press | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Endeavour Press

Fast forward twenty years and me and the fictious Bridget Jones once again find ourselves in similar situations. We are both widows with young children. She has two, I have three. I am fascinated that Helen Fielding has followed this storyline as, since I was widowed seven years ago, I have been amazed at how little contemporary literary reference there is to us 'young widows'.

But... I Love You

Lana Citron

I wonder if it's a female thing this propensity to apportion blame on oneself for a relationship disaster. I can't recall many of my male friends blaming themselves for their love affairs going tits up... whether it is or isn't gender specific, it's a meaningless moan.

Ellie Lewis

What I have gained most from match.com, and the last thing I expected to, is I now feel calmer about being single. My relationship status no longer causes me to panic, and start thinking of cat names.

Dating for Jewish Men

Sammy Sultan

As a young Jewish man, I take issue with the meddling, match making elders in my community. There comes a time in every Jew's life, where a compulsion to play cupid takes hold. I have been subject to its viceroy grip. Aunties and uncles orchestrate awkward family get-togethers, disguised under the pretence of a religious evening.

The First Date Was Great, but Can the Sequel Live Up to the Hype?

The Guyliner | Posted 06.10.2013 | UK Lifestyle
The Guyliner

The first date went so well, I hadn't really felt like I was trying; now I'm flailing and babbling. And when I'm not firing off questions, there is silence. I watch him fidget like a constipated toddler on a tricycle trying to let out a fart. He fiddles with his laces, runs his hands through his hair...

Dr. Vena Ramphal

A day celebrating orgasm seems wonderfully un-British. But I've long felt that the stereotype of unsexy Britain is inaccurate. Perhaps we're just less obvious about the sizzle. This got me thinking about un-obvious questions regarding sex. For example, 'Why do we have sex?'

All I Want in a Man

Sofie Hagen

I am pretty sure, I am the kind of woman that pick-up artists around the world would refer to as a "10". Have I not an excessive amount of lumps here and there? Men love that. And don't get me started on my extensive knowledge of Fresh Prince of Bel Air-trivia. In all ways, I am a catch. I think I am damn well entitled to make some demands of my own, when choosing a man.
