Dating: Being Single is Worse than Being Fat — Study Claims

Are you a single pringle? Well, you may be better off hitting the Pringles tub instead, a new study claims. The new research which was presented at the 125th Annual Convention of the American Psychological Association, informs that being a bachelor (or spinster) not only presents a greater danger than becoming dickpressed (depression one suffers from a distinct lack of vitamin D), but leads to social isolation and loneliness that is...

Dating: Let’s Talk About Sexuality as a Spectrum

I was at the gym this morning when I began feeling mildly sexually aroused. Partly due to the bald guy with the ginger beard, and partly due to the brunette Ariana with the high ponytail and pink thong riding up as she cycled. Considering I’d been gay since I can remember, it was a bit of a surprise. I’d came out as gay at eighteen and have no intention of changing that label, despite picturing shoving it between her tight slender...

Dating: 7 Reasons Basic Bitches are in a Relationship Before You

It can be a daily struggle with the number of basic couples swamping our News Feeds with their simple celebrations of having found another village bitch to spend the next three weeks of their life in love with. But regardless, we question, how did they meet someone before me?  Are they actually a bigger catch than me? Well before you start questioning your sanity, though we may believe that they are meeting men despite their...

Dating: I went on a ‘Drug Date’ and Here’s What Happened

Dates come in all shapes and sizes; the coffee date, lunch date, the hook-up (where you skip the actual date and jump straight into his bed). And living in New York, you’ll experience them all (gym date, anyone?) But I was currently being faced with what appeared to be a ‘drug date’: Danny was a South London-looking guy I’d met at the opening of a Manhattan bar last month. My friend Darren had decided to play Cupid while he was...

Dear Casual Partners, My Sex Life is None of Your Damn Business

I won’t lie and say I was surprised to received a message from a former flame while living stateside. Men are like kids; you take away the toy they previously discarded and suddenly they wanna play with it again. Perhaps he was wondering if we could’ve worked after all, or perhaps he just wanted a homecoming bang, but all I know is that even Casper weren’t that transparent, and he was a fucking ghost. But the conversation took a...

Dating: When your Grindr Meet turns into a Therapy Session

When you meet strangers off hook-up apps, the least you expect is to have your balls lightened, but my latest online liaison dumped his emotional load all over my chest instead. I’d been getting white girl wasted all evening on a gay boat party. Well, it was LGBT with a capital L. Total fish market. Anyway, all that fresh air and Tequila had me so licked that my homecoming was accompanied with slutty Grindr exchanges. What else are...

FAGONY AUNT: “My Addiction to Escorts is Getting me into Debt!”

I HAD sex with two escorts in three days – and now I’m worried I’m getting hooked on them. I’m a 25-year-old gay guy and have never had a boyfriend. I’m a computer programmer for a big software company. I work with lots of different people but I never seem to have anyone interested in me. Everyone is geeky and they’re wrapped up in their work rather than wanting to go out. My friend told me about an escort agency he used. I signed up...

Dating: Are our Lowest Denominators of Intimacy Preventing us from Finding Love?

I’d only been stateside for a New York minute when I found myself chatting to a group of friendly strangers in Boxers, a gay sports bar (sort of). There’s footie on the TV, but Christina Aguilera whaling out the speakers. Anyway, those damn Happy Hours got me chewing stranger’s ears off like a piece of bacon fat. And it wasn’t long before the cocktalk ensued. This week’s topic of discussion was how we can...

Dating: Speed Dating in NYC Definitely has a Purpose – it just wasn’t Love

As if New York City wasn’t fast-paced enough, I’d decided to add even more haste to my love life by signing up for speed dating. I know, I’m fully aware that the chance of this being the biggest shit show since Amanda Bynes, was relatively high. But – despite the beliefs about Paris and Venice – I truly believed that this was the city of love – and if I was gonna date a string of losers somewhere, it was not gonna be...

7 Savvy & Successful Tips for Gay Dating (& Sex) in the 21st Century

Amy Winehouse famously sang, “Love is a losing game”, and she didn’t even have Grindr. With an interest in casual sex and random encounters at an all-time peak, and a dwindling social scene those words have never been truer. Sure, there’s still a large portion of us craving love in a more traditional sense, but with the influx of apps, even we’re being pressured into partaking just in the hope of a rare...

Dating: The Millenial Trend of the “Sex Interview” BEFORE the First Date

If you were worried that putting out on the first date made you too easy, there’s an increasing numbers of singles not even making it to the dinner table before they scoff on a baguette. Well, in the US, at least; though I’d suppose us Brits aren’t far behind, if not even worse – especially if you survey Clapham. According to USA Today, in a study with with 5,00 Singles In America, they found that 34% have had...

Dating: Gay Men and the Shiny Penny Syndrome

I first heard about the shiny penny syndrome when living in West Hollywood. I didn’t really have to ask for a definition because not only is it relatively self-explanatory, but it makes perfect sense when referring to men on the gay scene. Although, apparently it’s so rife in WeHo, the term is more common than the UK – and y’all thought LA was shallow?! Shiny Penny Syndrome occurs when you’re dating a...

How To Make Yourself More Approachable to Men

As society progresses, it seems that meeting men in bars is becoming more and more rare, and while many of us are too shy to approach a guy, when we don’t get approached often either, it can leave us at a frustrating impasse. I’d often go out with friends, and while they’d get approached a few times in a night, I’d always be the one on the 176 snuggling up to my Burger King on the way home. I wanted a quarter...

Thought of the Day: Are Fixer-Upper Boyfriends the Future?

Anybody that’s ever watched a property show, understands the term ‘fixer-upper’. It’s when somebody buys a house in a bruck-down state that nobody wants, invests time, energy and money to transform it into something immaculate. So, if we can do this with our dream homes, why can’t we do it with our dream man? We’ve all heard doe-eyed couples drool “he brings out the best in me.” Really, ‘cause we all think you’re a cunt now, though...
