I tend to come to things late: Twitter, The Wire and puberty were all delayed arrivals into my life. And losing my virginity was no different. I rocked up to the University of Manchester in tragically chaste and sexually frustrated. By the middle of my first year, my turn had come. That was the end of that. But an awareness of my race, and a persistent bout of thrush, followed me through university and beyond. I had spent most of my teens avoiding thinking about my ethnicity; blending in and miracle boob growth were my principal wishes at that age. It began to crop up in my love life — such as the time I was asked whether my vagina was pink inside FYI, it is. The more I learned about racism and feminism, the smaller the pool of potential suitors became.

Dating Diary XI
I enjoy socialising, but I’m still focused on doing well. I’ve been single for 3 years I had been internet dating quite a while and at first, I thought it was pretty shallow. If anything you have the chance to find out a little more about the person online first. Gross, guys. I would probably say my ideal guy is tall, dark and handsome.
But my dating life has, um, how do you say: not flourished. In all fairness, this was absolutely true of my pre-quarantine life too, but I save that.
I am not usually comfortable in a bar by myself, but I had been in San Francisco for a week and the apartment I sublet had no chairs in it, just a bed and a couch. My friends in town were married or worked nights. One Tuesday I had lentil soup for supper standing up at the kitchen counter. After I finished, I moved to the couch in the empty living room and sat under the flat overhead light refreshing feeds on my laptop.
This was not a way to live. A man would go to a bar alone, I told myself.
My Dating Disasters Diary
However, I urge you to try something different every single time. This will make sure that each date feels different because each date is at a different location. At the same time, we stifle ourselves when we limit our potential dating pool. I can promise you, every date will seem like an adventure. Of course, there are some questions that should be asked of everyone regardless, but asking different questions that are specific to your unique date will help each date feel different.
We’re kicking off our new “Diaries” series with a look at what it’s like to be single, dating on apps in your 30s.
I used to have a diary in college, and I still love reading it when I’m feeling nostalgic. There are so many great stories in there which I never would have remembered if I hadn’t written them down. That’s why I’m so disappointed that I didn’t keep a diary when I was dating Drew. Of course I know all of the major events in our relationship, but it’s the little things that I wish I had written down so that I’d always remember them.
Do you have a relationship diary so you never forget any detail? I know it would have been unrealistic for me to have kept a diary of every last thing Drew and I did while we were dating, but I’m frustrated that I didn’t better “document” our relationship. I keep all of our notes and cards in a big box under my bed, but I got lazy, and over time, I stopped collecting business cards from restaurants where we ate and postcards from cities we visited.
I don’t have a great memory I seriously forget almost anything that isn’t written down , so I wish I could go back in time and write notes about what we did from month to month, just to jog my memory. The other day, I had to ask Drew the name of the first movie we saw together. I was so aggravated I couldn’t think of it on my own! I’m lucky Drew has such an amazing memory, so I can always bug him, but if I had just kept that movie stub, or written it down in a diary, I probably would have remembered it on my own.
So, do you have a diary, and do you write down all the little details that happen to you with your guy? Or do you have a great memory? Who remembers more about your relationship: you or your guy?
