The sex spreadsheet: why I think the wife was wrong

Have you heard about the sex spreadsheet? Regular readers of my blog will be happy to know that I was very interested in this story, as I have blogged before about whether you have the right to withhold sex in your relationship. Personally, I think someone refuses sex at their peril. Sex is an important […]

Have Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres broken up?

I thought I’d do a shout out to one of my favourite couples: Portia de Rossi and Ellen DeGeneres. I love this couple so much that I even managed to spell BOTH their last names correctly, without having to check Wikipedia. Part of my interest in their names is of course the fact that Australian […]

5 ways to feel confident about your body right now

I love my body. No, no – don’t hate me. I don’t love it because it’s perfect. I love it because I have always loved my body – even when it was overweight. No, actually I am lying. When my body was overweight – I felt awful, every day. When I was overweight I never […]

Why you should absolutely love Australia’s gorgeous problem child, Lara Bingle

Have you heard? Lara Bingle is in the USA – in fact, she has been back and forth there quite a bit with her sexy Aussie actor boyfriend. This gorgeous celebrity is one of my favourites, so I thought it was high time I blogged about her. So who is Lara Bingle? According to Wikipedia: […]

Do women really find older men attractive?

Are older men attractive? Sigh. I have dated lots of older men, in fact, with the exception of my beloved The Boyf (who is annoyingly 2 years younger than me – as he so often likes to remind me) I have almost always dated older men. A little discussion on what makes older men attractive […]

The tragic early death of Peaches Geldof and why it upset me so much

I feel enormously sad when someone dies tragically before their time. That is what has happened to the beautiful Peaches Geldof. I once wrote a post about her and it’s been one of my most popular. I know that people love her, I loved her. When I turned on the TV this morning I was […]

What should you order on a first date and who should pay?

It has been a very long time since I went on a first date but I have been on many in my time. I remember in my youth, sitting opposite a teenaged date of mine who had just had a cappuccino – he spent the entire date with a chocolate moustache and I was too […]

The pain and glory of Valentine’s Day

In Australia, we don’t have men, we have blokes. If you google the word ‘bloke’ you just get a definition that it means the same as ‘man’ but in a more casual way. How are Australian men regarded overseas? I think most people would think that Australian men are a bit like Crocodile Dundee or […]

What is the Most Attractive Age For Men and For Women?

What is the most attractive age for men and for women?

It’s a question we are all wondering.  Is there a “most attractive” age for men and women? Is the age the same or different for males and females? Luckily for me, there are many studies done on this subject, so I was able to find lots of statistics on what the most attractive age is. […]

How to Be Charming (Yes, You)

I have a thing for charmers. Male or female, superior or subordinate. Lover or neighbour. I love a charmer. I am also very charming myself. A typical Libran, I can usually get what I want in life because I know how to turn on the charm. For a while. As well as this, I have […]

When Does Sadness Become Depression?

I just got nothing today. Nothing at all. This is not a post about writer’s block, this is a post about emptiness. I feel like life has lost its lustre, but I can’t be too despondent here because I don’t want to cry. I want to be positive. It’s really hard to keep looking on […]

How Long Does it Take to Get Over a Break Up?

I have been avoiding a break up for the past ten years. Basically I never got over my very first love, who I split with by the time I was only 22. Since then I have had several long-term relationships, but I always kept my partners at arm’s length. I had a five year relationship […]

What Makes a Man Hot? The Definitive List

Men. Blokes. Dudes. Bros. I love ‘em and I hate ‘em… but mostly I find them irresistible, provided they play by my rules (ok this has never happened to date, but I remain staunchly optimistic!). Recently, I uncovered an old diary where I listed what I find attractive and unattractive in a man, and since […]
