An Update: Filming with BBC 3 & Dating Disasters

Tuesday, 11 March 2014

I really hate dating.
I hate sitting across the table from someone who you can't work out if you fancy, awkwardly twiddling a fork of something you wouldn't usually eat (picking something vicarious and interesting in an attempt to make yourself look cultured) and then leaving unbothered by whether or not they'll text later that evening.
Just recently I've endured five of these.
Five! A record number. Yet I feel strangely unsatisfied.
They were all equally as sweet, cute and quaint affairs that passed the time, no better than an hour or so aimlessly browsing the internet, but nice none the less.
If my dating experience were an ice cream, it'd be vanilla.
If my dating experience were a sofa, it'd be a beige flatpack ikea job.
If my dating experience was seemingly nothing to write home about, then why am I scribbling away on the back of a postcard?
Because I think it may have just changed.
Praise the lord, heavens and fluffy hearts above, I went out on a date that didn't make me want to stab my eyeballs out with the blunt end of a knife repeatedly until it all ended abruptly with a trip to A&E, a short news article on the Daily Mail and a bemused suitor left scarred for life.

Unconventional by all means, throughout the entire event there was a woman holding a giant light source in front of me and a man with an inconveniently sized camera hanging off my every word with his wide lens.
Wash your dirty thoughts, myself and my date were fully clothed, stood on Millennium bridge for the world to see.
I had been asked out on a date by the ever-talented actor Tyger Drew Honey as part of a new documentary being filmed for BBC 3.
He was everything a good date should be, boys take note.
Charming, polite and not afraid of stimulating conversation that shies away from the weather.
I am very much a behind-the-camera girl, always busied away in pre and post production, the actual 'production' side to life never usually graces me with its exciting and exuberant presence, a lot like a decent date night, so this was big news.

I'm super excited to be able to share this with you, particularly as the prominent topic of conversation that we were discussing was something I'm particularly passionate about lecturing the world with and I hope that for someone it might make a difference to how they think about compromising situations in their life.

Sorry for the lack of posts, getting myself back on track!

I'll let you know when it's out!

Peace and love x


  1. Your posts never fail to cheer me up when I'm feeling down. I love the way you write, you are so engaging and write in a way where people can feel like they relate! I hope someday my blog will mirror something of this magnificent one!

  2. Apologies for thinking you were a lesbian all this time cause you weren't dating either twin. Goodluck with Tyler. Charly Cox Honey has a nice ring to it. You're beautiful and I hope you stay happy.
