Chelsea Black, one of London’s top dating bloggers, is back with more from the world of 21st century dating. Yes, believe it or not, there’s so much more after Cupid’s Cockups.
Hitting the dating scene with the same gusto and passion she has for sweets saw her through many misadventures and, she even came out with a serious relationship that nearly saw her move to what was once the land of the brave and the free. (USA, not a Braveheart’s Scotland reference).
But this time, she needs a strategy to find the man that will love the names she’s preapproved for their babies, understands her love of international concerts and can communicate in full text sentences. All this after developing an allergy to dating apps.
Thus begins Chelsea’s #40DayDating Challenge to find her prince. Join her as she criss-crosses London for dinners with catfish, ghosts, dudes who claim to eat before the date so that they don’t have to pay the bill, yet still eat her chips, and grown men who just can’t tell the time.
The question is, will Chelsea find her modern-day prince amongst all the frogs with their fuckeries, or will she have to retreat, re-strategise and hope for third time lucky?
Do you sometimes wonder if Cupid has other plans for you? Perhaps that delightful angel needs a little guidance when you hit those dating apps?
Dating is like any exercise regime. It’s not as fun as they make out in all of those late-night TV infomercials and, once you start, you can’t stop for fear of losing your newly-formed ‘swipe’ muscles. Just ask divorcee and top dating blogger Chelsea Black.
Dating after divorce isn’t easy. Having been thrown out of the suburbs where single women are not allowed for fear they’ll steal someone else’s husband, Chelsea finds herself immersed in the world of dating. A decade later and there are the internet, mobile phones and the constant threats of cocktails to thwart her plans for finding her FuHu (Future Husband). But try she does as she asks herself what does one have to do to be truly dating ready and why are so many men not doing it?
Cupid’s Cock Ups takes you through an array of dating debacles from online and sex only dating (yes, this does exist) to new fiancés and the men who seem to forget that they have a wife at home. But through it all, she manages to pick herself up and start again because there’s no such thing as a date that can get you down, right?
This memoir is a tipsy and personal journey based on the blog “The mizzadventures of Chelsea Black.”
Taking a break from Dating, Chelsea turns to her next big relationship hurdle: Work Woes.
Join her as she takes you through the work woes of interimming. From African Aunties who buy you flour instead of flowers, Allies who think their feelings are more important than the actual issue and well, arseholes, this is a guide to surviving working with others.
And, try as she may, Chelsea doesn’t always play well with others …
