Thanks @champagnepapi and @aunt_flo 🙂 It’s definitely been weird getting used to single life after such a long time with the same person! I’ve been taking lots of time to explore new hobbies and getting my new home set up, so it’s all feeling very positive.
Thanks for the great advice. I think as i’m not wanting to rush into anything the slow…[Read more]
This is an interesting one @aunt_flo. I would say, think about how you would feel if the situation was reversed and it was your partner flirting with others. If it feels hurtful then that probably answers the question. I think you can tell if something feels honest or if alarm bells are saying that you are crossing a line. Personally I just feel…[Read more]
Great question @aunt_flo! I’m always keen to hear the spectrum of opinions that invariably come up in this debate.
Personally, I’ve grappled with issues of jealousy and possessiveness for YEARS, ever since my first relationship. It’s not something I’ve ever been able to get comfortable with, and I attribute that to my attachment style (highly…[Read more]

Wow @potplant that sounds intense! @aunt_flo parents on the first date is a lot too. I recently went on a Bumble date with a guy who freely admitted his pictures were two years old (first mistake) then he got really drunk and started shouting to everyone in the pub that I was “a treat”. Needless to say, I made a speedy exit!

@aunt_flo Meeting the parents on a first date!?!? What’s with that?? Though not sure which is more awkward – that or being recruited to a cult… 🙂
Hey @earthmama @potplant @goldenrose @aunt_flo, how are you all finding things a few months on? I thought by now we would be back to more of a state of normality but the pub check ins are still very much a thing! One of the main struggles i’m having is with everything feeling so regimented. I get that it’s for our safety to beat the virus but I…[Read more]
Hey @aunt_flo, yes I think it’s just one of those inevitable things about being in a long term relationship. The ‘honeymoon’ phase doesn’t last forever!
I’ve been trying to do more yoga and meditation recently which has been helping with my mood. I do think COVID has made all emotions a lot more heightened so it’s good to take that time out and…[Read more]
@aunt_flo @piperr42 totally agree! It is SO much effort to keep up the perceived ideas of what body hair should look like. I’m a ‘shave once a week’ kind of girl but sometimes catch myself forgetting! I have noticed more and more that women are letting their hair grow out which is so empowering! One thing that annoys me about the way we are told…[Read more]

Hey @sextronaut and @aunt_flo, I completely agree with running out of things to talk about! When you are both out at work for the day, even if it’s little things that happened you still have something to share and ask “how was your day?” When you are in the same house all day it gets a little tricky! I think it’s all been about realising…[Read more]
@aunt_flo, there’s no need to avoid the entire bicep/tricep area. As implants are usually placed on the inside of the non dominant arm, having the tattoo on the front of the arm is totally fine. It’s just best to avoid tattooing over or near the implant.
I am a reality TV junky so loved reading this thread.
Totally agree on dating shows having a massive lack of representation across sexuality, body types and race.
I did recently watch a MTV US series called Are you the One? (Season 8 – Come One, Come All)
Which was the first-ever season of the show where all…[Read more]
Hi @aunt_flo, it’s a good question! The main concern is the risk of the Implant breaking & not providing contraceptive cover. Although tattooing may go to different depth in the skin to the implanon, the pressure applied may cause breakage. Generally the advice is to get a tattoo first & then the Implanon inserted after…or choose a different…[Read more]
It feels like life has been returning to normal in slow motion with restrictions being slowly lifted but also not really… I went out to the pub last week and it has been so strange having to sit at the same table the whole time.…[Read more]
@aunt_flo, I totally relate to quarantine being a perfect time to let body hair grow out! I was the same as you and have been shaving since I was a young teen and it has actually been so awesome seeing my body hair grow its own way!
I totally agree that having a partner mention my grooming during sex is the biggest mood killer ever! For the most…[Read more]
That’s so interesting @aunt_flo, I suppose most things do come back to how we see ourselves. I am really glad for you that the experience came an opportunity for you to take stock of who you are in the absence of your sex drive. I think it is easy to forget how much emphasis we place on elements of our identity until we are left without them,…[Read more]
I love this post so much!
I really resonate with what you are saying @stephaniaaaah and @aunt_flo, especially where you said: “I’m actually a bit afraid of being confident in my sexuality, because of the nagging feeling in the back of my head that asks if I don’t actually like girls, because I’ve never dated a woman.”
I feel like it is clear…[Read more]
Oh that is such a good analogy @aunt_flo!
Thanks so much for sharing @stephaniaaaah I completely understand where you are coming from and can definitely relate (I’ll jump on the other post and elaborate from my previous reply in that thread :))
I’m sure it would have been hard to come to that realisation as I feel like there is a lot of…[Read more]
