sometimes, I pay for my boyfriend’s dinner – what’s the big deal?

In this modern age, relationships aren’t as one sided as they used to be. Whether you meet someone in the work arena or you go really modern and meet your match on a site such as eHarmony.com.au, you can expect that person to want an equal relationship. But that’s not to say everyone else will…

lip magazine
2 comments

Being in your twenties is difficult and sexy. In our twenties we graduate uni, generally start full time employment, dick around Europe for two years or so ‘finding ourselves’, drink too much beer and start getting fat and then realise it’s not as easy losing weight as it was when you were 17 after VCE…

lip magazine
One comment

Approximately 35% of women have been involved in emotionally abusive relationships at some point in their lives. We tend to take the philosophy to heart that making mistakes in relationships is part of our evolutionary process of growth. But what’s the difference between mistakes and being emotionally abused?

the myth of the crazy ex-girlfriend

Kaylia Payne
No comments

If there was one word I would have used to describe my husband’s ex-girlfriend, it was ‘crazy’. I said it and I said it often. So did he and I have to say, I took a particular malicious joy whenever the word passed his lips in regard to her. After all, she had harassed both…

why the friend-zone is a con

lip magazine
5 comments

We’ve all heard people whinge about getting stuck in the “friend-zone”. Basically, they have fancied someone who does not return their feelings. The object of their longing has either knowingly or not placed them in the friend-zone. The zone of no escape. The zone of perpetual no-sex. They might even be, God forbid, “like a…

lip lit: margaret overton, good in a crisis

No comments

Ever since my young sister spent three months in hospital due to complications following brain-surgery, I’ve been fascinated with books about illness and grief, particularly when it comes to memoir.  It’s not that I’m a morbid person. It’s more that since I’m writing about the subject myself, I like to see how others approach it. …

2 comments

I have recently ventured into the world of online dating. It is my very first foray into the world. It’s … different. I think there’s far less of a stigma nowadays than there might have been when it first started, but it’s still there. It’s something I’ve been putting off for years because, I guess,…

A few days ago, a friend correctly assumed that I would enjoy reading this, documenting a neurotic email sent by a NY banker to a woman with whom he went on one date. Even if you’re the slowest reader in the world, I assure you that reading said email is time well spent, but here…
