Let me set you an all too familiar dating scenario. You want to go and check out the ‘it’ restaurant or cafe in town and impress the pants (pun intended) off your date. It may have a no reservations policy or you’ve left your reservation too late but you try and get a spot there […]

Two Sunday’s ago, I braved the extreme heat and ventured into the CBD on a Sunday afternoon (not something that I normally do). I’m in the city Monday to Friday so usually I avoid the big smoke on a Sunday. However something drew me into town that day and I reckon it made a beauty […]

You’d think drinks after work in the city would be a no-brainer for a date. You have worked hard all day and come 5pm you are super keen to hit a bar and forget all about work. Often though it is a sea of suits in every bar in Melbourne and you can overhear them […]

Avid readers of 50 First Dates will know I wrote a Bali special not too long ago. One place that I did not write up as every man and his dog that go to Bali already know about it was Potato Head Beach Club. As its name suggests, Potato Head is a beach club fit […]

This time next week Melbourne will be hosting its first Night Noodle Markets on the banks of the Yarra River. It’s a little hard to promote something that I have never been to; however the thought of this event is making me very excited. It sounds like a dating Mecca of food stalls, food trucks, […]

Since my last post, it seems the dating app Tinder has exploded onto the dating scene. If you’re a girl, I’m sure you’ve got a list of budding boys begging for a cheeky date. And if you’re a boy, I guess as all the boys do, you just flick left to every girl on Tinder […]

Living in St Kilda I often see a girl or a guy walking the streets in what is clearly last night’s outfit and with what is clearly sex hair. There’s no hiding the fact it’s the dreaded Walk of Shame (or Pride, depending who you ask). That early morning dash from a stranger’s house in […]

Winter was fast approaching and all reports were that it was going to be a freezing cold start. With this in mind I packed my bags and headed to Bali for a week. This was going to be my third trip to Bali in 16 months. Like I preach here, a little bit of research […]

It’s not awkward to take your mother on a date, especially when it’s mother’s day. Most mums (thankfully like mine) are fairly easy to please on their day; breakfast, some flowers and you are in the good books until next year. Others though aren’t so easy to please. I could easily rattle off a number […]

A friend of mine is all over RSVP (I swear it’s not me). Recently he explained to me he was meeting a girl for a coffee as a lunch or dinner was a little daunting on the first internet date in real life. I’m sure he’s not the only one, so I thought I’d help […]
