George Woolfrey

Writer, optimist, tragic romantic

George once ran off a train to escape from a bad date. Deciding that her are-you-actually-serious dating stories deserved a wider audience than her tickled friends, she now blogs at, where her warts-and-all posts distil the humour and life lessons from the minefield of the late-twenties. She covers the terrains of romance, mental health, comedy (see romance), travel, and fitting this around the slight annoyance - but never hindrance - that is being a type 1 diabetic.

Her debut post on going through depression as an optimist has been viewed over 10,000 times, earning her acclaim from Mind and prominent voices from the fields of mental health and diabetes.
