Tinder dates can always be a bit hit and miss but this one surely takes the biscuit.

This week the lovely man left for America, so in a frankly pitiful attempt to take my mind/heart/soul off of him I went back to Tinder, which kind of felt like taking a job in Sports Direct when you used to manage a football club.

So my first foray back in to dating and it lasts a total of 32 minutes and ends with the most alarming text message I’ve ever received.

We meet at the tube station after he declined my suggestion to meet at a pub, and he asks if we can go for a coffee as he’s not drinking.

“Sure” I say, “there’s a lovely independent coffee place over the road.”

“Nah, there’s a Costa just here. Saves crossing” he replied.

Like seriously? I put on eyeliner for this and now I’m in a Costa bloody Coffee.

After 25 minutes of ‘normal’ conversation we have the following exchange:

Him: “Have you had dinner yet?”

Me: “No I came straight from work.”

Him: “What would you say if I offered to cook you dinner?”

Me: “Ermmm…right now?

Him: “I only ask because I’ve got an Ocado delivery coming tonight.”

Me: “I’d have to say no. I couldn’t possibly go back to the home of someone I’ve literally just met, sorry.”

Him (talking over me): “lots of nice fresh vegetables and good fish.”

Him: “OK well I’d better go. Need to be home for the delivery.”

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,500 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
