Avoiding negativity and staying true to yourself

This week I have found myself spouting that old chestnut ‘life is too short’ on repeat to myself and to my best friends. Those 4 little words couldn’t be more true and it’s great to remind ourselves during periods of negativity, drama or stress that there really is so much more to life than silly spats and unnecessary negativity.

Online dating: Experiences, advice and being yourself

Ah online dating. A world of stale chat, mixed signals and dodgy dick pics. Okay so I’m being a bit cynical there – I know lots of people who have had online dating successes. I’m yet to be one of those lucky people, so as I still wade my way through this stream of sexual innuendos, crap chat up lines and cryptic messages, I thought I’d write a little post all about my experiences and some advice that I’d wish I’d had at the start when I first downloaded the apps.

I’m not knocking the ‘New Year New Me’ mentality because for some people, it takes a clean slate and a new beginning to get the motivation to change things. But for me, I’m the same old Tiff, just with some habits I want to knock on the head and new things I want to try. Continue reading
