Modern Asian Persuasion | Date #19

When you think of cool Modern Asian it-restaurants in Melbourne’s CBD the image that comes to mind first has to be a long and angry queue of people waiting outside. For me, it’s grossly unfair as I’m mad for Modern Asian. Thankfully though there is one particular little mod Asian CBD spot that has seen […]

Dating Plan B | Date #18

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 […]

Sunday Safari | Date #17

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 […]

Après Work Drinks | Date #16

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 […]

Tinder Trials | Date #13

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 […]

Walk of Shame | Date #12

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 […]

50 First Dates | Bali | Date #11

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 […]

A Date with Mum | Date #10

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 […]

Pre-Comedy-Festival-Tipple | Date #8

The Melbourne International Comedy Festival rolls into town next Wednesday (March 27, 2013) bringing with it a wealth of dating opportunities with guaranteed LOL’s. You have two options here; book ahead or grab a ticket on the night from the ticket booths on Swanston Street. Booking ahead is your safe option, and for a spontaneous […]
