Wowcher’s Dating Do’s & Dont’s!

Waiting at a ‘trendy bar’ in High Street Kensington, cosmopolitan in hand, I check my face in the mirrored ash tray. The ‘sultry effect’ I was aiming for looks more bedbound rat than bedhead vixen. ‘Can I really do this?’ I ask myself. What if I get something down my top? Or God forbid, in my teeth?

As you may have guessed, I’m about to endure a meet-and-greet with a complete stranger. Something that Wikipedia calls, ‘a form of courtship done by two people,’ and an act which American psychologist Debby Herbenick warns may cause ‘anxiety-induced stress levels.’ Whichever way you wish to spin it, I’m basically preparing myself for an ‘awks’ blind date. And I’m absolutely bricking it.

Ten minutes in, and I’m already blabbering. “I’m a big, err, fish person,” I hear myself spouting. Clammy hands, flushed cheeks, and a mouth that just keeps on going. I’ve got it all, and it’s not a good look…

So if, like me, you need some tips on how to stay cool, calm and effortlessly collected in the dating game, we’ve compiled a list of dating etiquette rules. Listen, and learn… Read more

A night to (big) top all others…

 

circus5

Most Friday nights tend to revolve around a few glasses of wine, but last week we put down the bottle and opted for an evening of back flips, bikes and a whole lot of nail-biting. Any guesses? Yep – the circus was in town and thanks to Wowcher, we rocked up eager for entertainment – and we certainly weren’t disappointed. Gerry Cottle’s circus boasts an impressive 50 acts in just 100 minutes, meaning the talented performers barely grabbed a breather in between high energy routines. From limbos of fire to impressive bungee aerobics, there was no end of variety on show, plus plenty of cringing from behind our hands as a single slip would have surely resulted in catastrophe. Our money was certainly well spent on an adrenaline-filled evening we won’t forget soon. Is it too late to re-train and run away with the circus?
