32-year-old, London based writer on the perks and perils of being a straight, single male.
I’m Jordi. I’m 32, straight and single in London.
I’m Single in London because I recently had my heart unexpectedly shredded to ribbons by the love of my life. After a few months of listening to “Nothing Compares 2 U” by Sinead O’Connor on repeat, I created Thirty Something London to show you that despite the unrivalled agony of suffering a broken heart that not only can you go out and enjoy life, but you can make a difference.
So, what do I write about? I write about what life’s really like through the eyes of a straight, single metrosexual male. I don’t live in my mother’s basement. I do stuff. Lots of cool stuff. So I also write about the agony of dating, heartbreak and love as well as cool bars, events and London life in general. It’s always funny, interesting and inspiring . So indulge in it, comment about it and share it with everybody you think will like it too (so, ummmmm – that means everyone). I don’t think there’s ever a dull moment in my life.
Ok, so me. My background is in marketing, though I haven’t always been stuck behind a desk. In 2006 I left my job to travel the world and did so for the best part of a year. I was doing some modelling in Italy (true story) when a chance meeting with someone in the tourism industry offered me the opportunity to video blog (or vlog if you will) my way around Europe. So, after a year of videoing my experiences of jumping out of aeroplanes, running with bulls in Pamplona, throwing tomatoes in Bunol and drinking ridiculously large steins of beer in Munich for Oktoberfest I finally decided to settle in Italy for 4 years.
I moved back to London in late 2011 and have never enjoyed it more.
