I’m Eleni, a very smiley, social person, always the first on the dance floor and the friend that is first to say “Yes, let’s do that!” (I even wrote a bucket list this year)
I may be slim but don’t be fooled, I’m half Greek and that tells you everything you need to know about my extremely healthy appetite and love for all Mediterranean food.
I have the complete incapability of cooking without some hip shaking whilst listening to terrible music.
My son, Theo, is 10. He’s very loving, and of course handsome! He has ADHD and benefits greatly from being active, through his Karate and football love. We love to cook, run, sing and watch Strictly Come Dancing together LOL.
My family mean the absolute world to me, there’s not a week that goes by that I don’t see them. Some of my most cherished memories come from my summer’s spent in Cyprus with my Grandparents and extended family picking fresh figs off the trees in the morning.
Staying active is a big part of my life. It does wonders for my mental health, especially as most of my week is spent working from home. I just love the post gym feeling (thanks endorphins), and I’m happy to say that I’m proud of my body.
In the week, Theo and I have a very healthy diet…lots of Mediterranean food. I just love to cook! Come the weekend it goes out of the window a little as the wine, cocktails and eating out is enjoyed to the fullest, but we only live once!
Why I started this dating and lifestyle blog
I’ve been dating online for the past 3 years, and too often I’d watch my friends cry with laughter as I shared my dating stories.
They gave me the idea to start writing blogs about my online dating dramas, and here we are 6 months later…I found my creative juices again and hence be dating beautiful was born.
I want to bring you lighthearted stories about my online dating journey, provide dating tips, but also write about the importance of self-love.
I struggled with body confidence for the majority of my life, and it was only after I sought help from a therapist after my marriage ended in 2020 that I started to learn to love myself.
“I’m now a 39 year old, confident, fit and strong woman!”
Too often, I speak to single women who can’t stand the sight of their own body, which I find heartbreaking. Having been on that same journey, I hope to inspire women to believe that one day they will look in the mirror and say “I am beautiful” as life is simply too short.
Is simply reality seen with the eyes of love.
