Let’s talk about online dating a.k.a. “the swipe life”…. *cracks neck*

To start this off, I’m not posting this article to encourage everyone to use dating apps (unless they’ll upgrade my account to premium for free hihi joke) but if you decide to try online dating please don’t blame me if things go south. Use it at your own discretion.

Online dating is simply judging people based on their looks and their bios (well only if they have one and unless you read them) and then narrowing it down to the most important question: “are you worth my time and energy?”.

I would like to talk about the PROS AND CONS OF ONLINE DATING first.

Disclaimer: These might not apply to everyone or you might disagree with me on some of the points I’ve listed and that’s totally fine cos I’m well aware that our situation differs from each other…

A correction – Moving was the best thing for both of us

The Daily Score

Changing ones living situation really does make all the difference in the world. Even though we have only been living in the new place for four nights, the impact has been drastic already. The other night, coming home from work, making a cup of tea and helping in the fixing of dinner, followed by some light cleaning, a little relaxation, some yoga and then reading in bed was just so much more calming, and relaxing than any night I can remember in months that wasn’t when I was on vacation.

The idea to relocate was not my own, it was my wife’s, and I am very grateful for that. We were both increasingly unhappy with the situation we were in, becoming more and more frustrated by the day. Something had to give, and finally it did. If I was living in the prior place on my own, I likely would…

More and more people suffer with generalised anxiety disorder (GAD) these days. Like myself, many others tend to distance themselves in order to avoid being hurt or having their issues affecting those who surround us.

Being in a relationship can be a daunting thought or experience. You meet somebody new who knows nothing about you, they don’t know how you behave, act or how you think about things. You soon learn new things about one another and start to feel a connection. You start to love both the good traits and flaws of each other. However, there are times when anxiety gets the best of you. It can be days, weeks or months of feeling like you’re not sure if this was the best idea. Should I have got myself into this situation? Is this a bad time? Have they started to lose the spark or have I?

Relationships are complicated. They are the most intricate designs we humans take pride in. So many variations, endless possibilities. Yet, due to this very nature relations are susceptible to damages. It takes a life to rebuild it.

When we talk about two individuals, the commitment brings them together. The trust and faith they have for each other build the foundation. On the flip side, relationships flounder when they face distrust, which, unfortunately, is quite common these days. Trust can be lost through rage, lies, violence, unethical activities, drug and alcohol abuse, and sexual infidelity. Trust is the bedrock of what makes relationships work. It is the fundamental process of love and intimacy. When trust goes, what goes with it are safety, security, respect, love, and friendship, replaced by anger, insecurity, anxiety, fear; the aggrieved person becomes like the police, the FBI, and/or the CIA. Life becomes laced with arguments, large…
