Why everyone should have one, why prospective partners should read them!
Finding the One is almost like finding a job. You have a person/skills spec in mind prescriptive, most probably, to the T. The first date is like an interview and if you tick the boxes, you get the call-back for the second round selection- perhaps complete with a PowerPoint presentation or In-tray assessment. As dating is starting to mirror the job hunt perhaps we should invest in a relationship CV. The important document that contains those little nuggets of info that will tell you whether your new (candi)date will lead you to real love or a true dud! Sure a CV takes all that’s left of the excitement in dating, but I’ve seen some colossal break-ups in my time, most that could have been avoided if they had a little insight into their other half’s romantic history.
Anyway here is what I envision a relationship CV to be. I wish you every success in the future and no doubt your CV will be kept on file.
Historically it’s been women who have gotten men confused. When we say yes we mean no, a question is a loaded minefield and our emotions have more twists and turns than a velocity-fuelled theme park ride. I won’t refute those claims, we ladies are a complicated bunch. However our male counterparts can’t escape so easily…
As a child of the ’80s, it was all about curls. Remember Nicole Kidman’s luscious coils in Days of Thunder? Or Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman? These A-listers put textured tresses on the map!
Unfortunately for these ladies their curls are no more. However a resurgence of natural waves and textures has come about. Below are some of my leading starlets rocking curls on the red carpet both past and present. They are my own poster pin-ups that keep me inspired and confident in my curls!
This trip came to me about eight years ago. I was watching Channel 4’s “A Cook’s Tour of Spain” with Masterchef winner Tommi Miers. She travelled through Spain starting in Andalucia and traversing north to Galicia unearthing timely food traditions including harvesting saffron and curing meats.
