the honeymoon period, love, relationships, my life

The Honeymoon period.

So I was reading an article about how the honeymoon period in relationships is usually over in six months so does that mean it’s all down hill from now for The Scientist and I?

To be honest I’ve barely even got to the honeymoon period with other relationships let alone get past it so I have no idea what’s going on!

I still feel in the early stages. I’m learning new things about him all the time even though we spend a lot of time together. I always look forward to seeing him at the end of the day.

This week he’s away for 4 days….and I know this pathetic but I’m bereft! Absence does not make the heart grow fonder it just leaves an empty space in our bed.

I feel the same way I did about him at the beginning, the excitement is still there and the sex is still the best ever. I want this feeling to last forever. Yes we have our little routines and we’re not going out every evening being wild and crazy but I love this feeling of contentment. Staying in and watching Netflix and then having amazing sex is the one.

For me the honey moon period is over rated, yes it’s exciting but it’s also filled with nervousness, anxiety and games whilst you’re trying to feel each other out. Give me the feeling of being relaxed and comfortable any time over that!

6 months later.

I honestly can’t believe it’s been 6 months already with The Scientist and I. I know to some people this might not be a big deal but for me it’s massive…. he’s officially my longest relationship!

We’ve just moved into our new flat which I love. It’s so nice building a home and seeing all of our things together. I’ve become someone who loves bobbing round IKEA. Who would have thought?!

People say you never truly know someone until you live with them but we’ve been living together for months now and I’m liking everything so far.

I just love spending time with him (once again I’m sorry if this is cringe but I’m so happy!)

I’m also going to try getting back to blogging a bit more as it’s totally gone by the wayside with all the moving. So you should be hearing a lot more from me soon!

31 day blog challenge, me, my life, 2018

Daily rituals.

Day 3 of the 31 day blog challenge.

So I get up every morning and sacrifice a goat and bow down to satan….or you know,do all the same things as most people do on the daily like snooze my alarm 500 times and reluctantly go to work. I also check Instagram, twitter, Facebook, snapchat and don’t hate me….the daily mail online and then I text my beloved back.

When I was online dating I used to obsessively check tinder, pof, Bumble and okcupid. It felt so weird deleting those apps and not just deleting the app but the whole account but obviously it was worth it.

I guess my new daily ritual is updating this blog whilst doing this challenge so follow me for the next 31 days to see what happens!

31 day blog challenge, me, my life, 2018

31 day blog challenge 2018!

I feel that I’ve been really slack with my blog recently, I guess that’s what happens when you blog about online dating and get into a relationship but I enjoy writing so I’m going to do another one of these challenges to encourage me to carry on, also I think it’s interesting to look back on last years one and see how far I’ve come. I’m going to be using this one; Ok let’s begin…. let’s keep the intro short as you all know me by now.

My names Tanya, I’m 33. Former online dating blogger and now a loved up soppy fucker. I think 2018 will be a year of massive changes and growing up for me which will be interesting as I’ve not seemed to nail adulting so far!

Here’s my recent picture, last time I did this I had pink hair! I really should bring that back. look at me rocking the Jeffrey Dahmer snap chat filter!

See you tomorrow folks!

me, my life, moving on, relationship, happiness

Moving in and moving on.


I realise a lot of you will read this post and think we’re crazy and it’s super fast and maybe you’re right but I’ve never felt happier!

Soooooooo what’s new with me? Nothing much except I’ve asked for a transfer at work so I can move in with The Scientist. No biggie.

I’ve not got a single doubt about moving in with him other than where my hundreds of pairs of shoes will go, I must love him as I’ve been sorting through my stuff ( I’ve lived alone for 7 years so I’ve got a lot of crap!) and already thrown out a few pairs. It was like Sophie’s choice but harder.

I’m sad about leaving work as I love my dysfunctional family there, my friends are scattered about so that’s not a problem and I ll only be an hour away from my family.

I can’t wait to start our lives together.

Meet the family

Last week I turned 33 (fuck me i’m getting on!) The Scientist, X and I went to my favourite beach to celebrate. I get that this is an unconventional threesome considering my well documented past with X but I love The Scientist and want him to get to know the other important man in my life. Not going to lie I was nervous. They are very different so could have been a disaster luckily they got on very well and we had a lovely day. After our beach adventure it was time to meet the family. I don’t speak to my parents and the only family I have in my life are my sister, brother in law and nieces. But luckily they fell in love with him too! My sister is equally as sassy as me and my nieces are even sassier so it could have been a tough crowd. My sister said that he is one of those people who you can’t help but fall in love with. Yep. Completely agree. I was pretty much there on date 2!

I’m going up north in a few weeks to meet his parents, even though I know they’re lovely (I’ve heard them on the phone) I’m more nervous than I’ve ever been about anything ever. I probably don’t make the best first impression. I’m cocky and loud and sweary so I’m going to have to hold all of that back! Wish me luck!

love, in love, me, my life

Those three little words

So after an amazing 2 months together and spending the last week at his I finally said those words, those words that I’ve never ever even come close to saying before. I Love you. Well actually it slipped out from him whilst we were being all snuggly and I said it back. I do love him. He makes me feel so different to anyone else. I love spending time with him and I love planning our future together. We’ve now said it a million times to each other (yeah, we’re just that cute!) but I feel it stronger every time we say it.

So yeah that all that’s new with me. The lone wolf is finally in LOVE!
