Ghosts, breadcrumbers and f.boys, do we even date real people anymore?

I’ll let you in on something personal - I’ve never really dated. From the age of 16 I’ve gone from having one serious relationship after the next, lasting at least 1-5 years each.

Are you prepared for your next adventure? My friends jokingly call me a "professional traveller", and I couldn't have put it better myself. When I applied for my Masters degree at UCL, I was asked to write down all of the flights I’ve taken in the last 3 years. That was a fun challenge counting
