Experimental Dater Number Eight has described this Challenge as a ‘journey of realisation’ for her. Returning to single life after fourteen years of marriage, she’s keen to find out what dating has to offer, this side of the Millennium! I know for a fact she’s already been starting fires on Tinder, and has a lot of racy tales to tell along the way!
