5. Single in the Shires
Anonymous blogger, Single in the Shires, may not have made it down the aisle with her fiancé, but she’d been with ‘The Ex’ for 7 years, so knows a thing or two about rebooting a love life. “All my friends were getting married and having babies and I was having to start again from scratch,” she writes. “We were planning our wedding. Or at least I was. He was banging someone else.” But, despite heartache, she picked herself up and started dating again.
