Both dates turn up to meet me on the same night!

Meet Marc
So Paul is still in the background and I am off on a night out with the girls in Clapham where I agreed to meet a guy I had matched with on Tinder, Yes I am on Tinder, I would highly recommend this to anyone single, its great fun! As Tinder guy walked towards me and sat down I soon realised he was totally uninteresting although very pretty to look at, I decided not to waste a night out with my friends so I left him with his to go and get myself a drink from the bar, this is where I met Marc. Oops there I am on a casual tinder date and I get talking to someone else, we exchanged numbers and a date was quickly arranged.

Meet Jack
Whilst enjoying casual dates with Marc, in fact I was up to date 4 (still no snog though) I was chatting to several other guys on Tinder too…… isn’t this so naughty?! But everyone is doing it right? Someone really cool popped up and his name was Jack! What a handsome guy he was, only 28 which is a bit on the young side for me but chatting to him isn’t doing any harm, is it?

Meet Ben
I swiped to the right and was soon chatting to Ben. But this was different. We instantly had great banter and I got butterflies in my tummy every time the phone beeped before I had even met him. Within about ten minutes of casually chatting we joked about getting married and without sounding like a complete nut case I rang my mum and told her I felt very excited about this guy.

Get back in the Game Nicola!!!
So Ben was off to Vegas the day we started talking and I was gutted that it would be at least 11 days before I got to meet him. I needed to get my head back in the game but I really didn’t want to. I had to remind myself that I was committed to the rules in this book because I never manage to get things right so off I went on my mission to keep four guys on the hob! In all honesty I can’t really count Paul anymore because he had done his disappearing act again leaving me feeling completely used and I knew that was the last time I would let him do that, it’s my fault for getting involved with someone that didn’t want a girlfriend. So let’s say goodbye to Paul now. Bye!

As Ben and I messaged each other the whole time he was away I felt so guilty about carrying on the game even though I hadn’t met him yet! Crazy huh! But I am no fool, he was single and in Vegas so I’m sure he was getting up to all sorts himself.

Dating Marc was really nice but I didn’t feel that spark in my tummy, I kept telling myself it’s not all about that and I needed to persevere. In the meantime I organised a night out to Wimbledon with Jodie and what a night it was.

I must have being feeling particularly daring because I casually invited both guys out…… I didn’t for the life of me expect them to both text me to say they was on their way.

Jodie completely freaked out because as we are standing in the bar waiting for both guys to arrive…… she literally screeches: “Nicola how the hell are you going to get away with this?” OMG OMG OMG now she had freaked me out!!!! I had a genius idea. Let’s get drunk and then we will just find this whole experience hilarious. Jodie and I started knocking back the shots and the rest is a distant memory but according to the photo evidence we had an awesome night and I got a lot of exercise running between Marc and Jack whilst Jodie distracted when necessary.

I saw Jack twice the following week but again I wasn’t getting the butterflies I so desperately wanted. What If I’m craving something that isn’t even real, what if my desire for a fairytale is above and beyond anything that is actually possible? All of a sudden The Game was not something I wanted to play anymore. What’s the point in dating loads of guys that your not really interested in just because the book tells you to? I actually even said to Simon (Poppy’s dad) I think I’m going to be single forever, He just told me I’m to fussy and always pick the idiots anyway. Thanks Si!

But what about Ben? Should I still go on a date with him despite giving up the game?

Another great girls’ night out

Hi everyone,

I am one of these people that says I don’t drink. What I mean is I don’t drink a lot, so when I do it only takes a couple of glasses of wine for me to get tipsy (tipsy sounds way better than drunk).

Last Friday I went out with two of my best friends Jodie and Carly. We always seem to have the most crazy nights out. The best thing about it is, all we want to do is get dolled up, find somewhere that plays good music, have a few cocktails and dance like doughnuts! Well Jodie and I dance like doughnuts while Carly normally watches and laughs at our moves!

I am obviously quite easily pleased because the highlight of my night was coming out of a nice cocktail bar to get a kebab. It is probably the tackiest thing to do but it was comical, three girls all dressed up, standing in the street eating a kebab. I knew I had a long night ahead of me and I was absolutely starving. This is normally something you would do at the end of the night but I have to say I would highly recommend it. I seemed to find a new lease of sober life once I had finished and I was ready for round two. So off we went to JJ Whispers in Crawley to dance our little socks off and have a few more drinks.

The joke of the night is that I have put on just under a stone in weight, which I am very happy about because I was way to thin before. However, the weight has gone straight to my bum!!! So of course I was shaking it as much as I could, while Jodie was doing the running man next to me… Very uncool but who cares?! Girls’ nights are all about having a laugh with your girlfriends and we most certainly had a lot of that, as you can see from all of the silly pictures below.

Lastly, the icing on the cake was that I bumped into an old and special friend who I haven’t seen for five years Tommy. Tommy and I lived together in Canary Wharf just before I got pregnant so we had many good times together to reminisce about.

My one mistake of the whole night was that I decided to text my ex-boyfriend on the way home in the taxi… cringe, cringe, cringe! I had so much fun in the nightclub that I originally met him in and I was desperate to tell him about my night. I didn’t get a response but I am not that surprised. I wish he had sent me something in the morning to ease my embarrassment of drunk texting, but no. Oooops!

This was the best night’s I have had out in ages and guess what, I didn’t even have a hang over!!! I now swear by the kebab pit stop half way through the night to soak up the alcohol, which is wrong, wrong, wrong but oh so right! ;)

I am in a very happy place right now, life seems very uncomplicated and that’s just how I like it. What more can I ask for? I have a job, a home, a beautiful little girl who is extremely balanced and I have crazy nights out with my friends every so often – I’m a lucky girl!

Back soon everyone,
