Here's the deal. I've been single since time immemorial. So, in an attempt to remedy my eternal singledom, and to get over my nauseatingly pathological fear of dates, I've decided to challenge myself. The challenge? To go on one first date a week for a year! So in 52 weeks time, I will have either found my Mr Right, or I'll stay forever Miss Write. This is what happens...

The Rules

Here are the rules to the 52 First Dates challenge...

1. A first date must be had once a week, EVERY week, for a year, that's 52 dates in 52 weeks.

2. Taking someone home after a drunken night on the cider does NOT count.

3. Second and third dates are allowed, I must continue first dates unless there are exceptional mitigating circumstances. For example, God forbid, the start of a relationship.

4. Each date must be blogged.

Radio 2 Interview

Hello there. So I popped along to Radio 2 today to have a little chat with Paddy O'Connell about my recent online dating shenanigans, particularly Sebastian Pritchard-Jones. If you missed it but wish you hadn't, fear not, you can have a wee listen on iPlayer right here. No donkeys or nudists were harmed during this interview.


  1. You sound very sexy

  2. Starts around 1:08.

  3. I was lucky enough to hear you this morning on the radio and can honestly say I've had similar experiences of women not turning up for dates and when you meet them they have been very dishonest with certain things, You are not alone in the bad times CTS not by a very long way.

    I do have to agree with the comment about your voice though, you have a very luxurious voice.

    Hope you find what you're looking for soon CTS I really do.

    Living in hope,
    Mr Rum.

  4. So I was right about those media appearances then...

    Only radio but still...


Thanks for reading 52 First Dates! And thanks even more for commenting!
