Although I am romantic, I am also very practical, so I need to find a way to find my prince. I tried hooking up with guys in pubs, and it worked well until I had to use the wheelchair to get around. Since then, I have become invisible.
Being with Glenn means that he loves me for me - he knows I have a learning disability but he doesn't care, he sees past it. It makes me feel safe, he's caring, he understands me, if I have a problem we discuss it. When we go out, he's always holding my hand, that's what I really like about him.
It's easy to take each other for granted, especially when you're in a long term relationship - but the fact is, the grass isn't always greener! When you've found the one, you need to value them - especially on Valentine's Day!
Valentine's Day is upon us, and although we can hear your exasperated sighs; you should take solace in the fact that - if you look in the right places - there's a plethora of exciting things to do, no matter what your relationship status.
My ex-boyfriend used to describe himself as a 'hopeless romantic'. Not because he couldn't help but be romantic, unfortunately, but because he considered himself completely hopeless at doing anything romantic. The mere thought of Valentine's Day would bring him out in a cold sweat.
It's Valentine's Day and many of us will be looking to dating apps for a potential romance. But where to begin? Your profile photo is obviously the first thing people will look at - just like in real life, your first impression is usually from the way someone presents themselves.
It is all the more fascinating, then, to find such texts imagining female desire and imagining it strikingly and unsettlingly. In endlessly surprising ways, popular medieval stories recognize that women have understandable erotic desires
It's that time of year again: the minivan flower-sellers are out, Clinton's shop-fronts glisten, red-glittered and teddy-beared, on the high street and you can't buy your M&S lunch without having to skirt the mountain of champagne bottles in the walkway (how very middle-class, daaarling).
You get to the office and there's not so much as an aphid on your desk, let alone a bunch of roses from a smitten co-worker. By the time you've struggled home on the bus, the only intimate encounter you've had has been with a violin case, when the kid carrying it grudgingly gets up to offer you their seat as the bags you are carrying under your eyes look so heavy.
Our relationship is a good one. It's not like the ending of a Disney movie, it's better. I don't need to be swept off my feet because I can appreciate who I am. Any time I feel like I'm not getting the love or attention I want, I know it's down to me. I take time out to remember what I'm good at and to appreciate who I am.
This Valentine's Day, my second with my current partner, it felt appropriate to look back on a year of shared travel trials and tribulations. We have had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places as a couple, with some big ups and downs, but hopefully you can learn something from our experiences!
I hope that Justine Greening will act on this Valentine's Day message and make the case to the Prime Minister that what we really need is a PSHE Bill, so that this desperately needed change can be delivered in a coherent and comprehensive way. It is vital that provision is statutory and covers all ages and all schools. Updated guidance alone will not be good enough. This must be an entitlement for every child.
It's almost Valentine's Day, which means there's plenty of love in the air and many of us will already be thinking of what to wear. Whether you're heading out on a first date in the evening or spending a chilled out day with your loved one, it's a welcome opportunity to dress to impress.
I still feel a bit uncomfortable writing about it, if I'm honest. My love life is really happy at the moment, but something still stops me from wanting to be too public about it, possibly because it feels like tempting fate.
Most people (46 per cent) expect their cut flowers to last less than a week, which is no surprise considering common mistakes include not changing the water in the vase, dumping the flowers in a vase without cutting the stems, and not using the flower food provided - all easy fixes to ensure your flowers stay looking fresh for longer.
I hope everyone indulges in something beautiful for someone beautiful. I hope each time we go for gold... we see if it really does glisten not just for us but for all those who mine it, make and those who wear it.
