Yes, She’s a Bitch

Is your mood controlled by hers? Is she almost always defensive? Does she get angry when you suggest she does something nice for you? Be honest, is there an imbalance in your relationship, where she’s doing the majority of the decision-making and you’re three years down the track without a fucking clue how this has … More Yes, She’s a Bitch

The Meet Market

I recently read a book titled, Dollars and Sex (Allen & Unwin) by Dr Marina Adshade and was intrigued by her market-driven summation of online dating.

British gals have flooded Sydney; all of our major cities. Promised a better life in Australia, they’ve set their expectations of Australian men very … More The New Ten-pound Pom
