Overcoming loneliness

Last Friday I found myself, unusually, with nothing to do. It’s a rare treat in a busy London life, but the thought did flit through my mind ‘I wonder if anyone wants to come over…’ I couldn’t really be bothered to come up with a plan, though, so I just stayed in and watched TV.

Letting go of the old to embrace the new

Easter is a time of hope, renewal and new beginnings so how can we bring that fresh energy into our dating life?
