Name: Harry Key
Relationship Status: Kinda sorta seeing just one person for a change.
What type of #SWEXPERT are you?
Writer, coach and runner of workshops, speakers of ugly truths and sower of seeds.
I used to be a Bollywood actor. No shit.
Best date you’ve been on?
I thought I was getting blown off for an after work “Thanks-but-no-thanks”. The place’s name made it sound like a dive, but it was one of those stupid ‘ironic’ places that was actually uber fancy. She turned up in a cocktail dress, I was wearing a smelly shitty tee-shirt. Even the bartener told me I was “punching above [my] weight”. Prick. No tip for him. Ironically my bummish appearance allowed me to relax and we got on great. Ended up staying together for a year.
What’s your most embarrassing dating story?
I once got in a little bit of hot water for being pleasured within eyesight of some diners who were getting put off their dinner. I thought I was in a secret spot. It was not so secret.
Why do you enjoy writing for Singles Warehouse?
I don’t, yet. The quantum, future me really enjoys it because writing funny and painfully honest stuff makes people laugh while they think and that opens new ways to be. I want the people that share this planet with me to be more confident so I can have an easier life.
I’d like to write advice columns for people who ask it, veiled advice to clients/friends, and do brutal and funny profile appraisals.
What do you think a relationship is about?
Having fun with someone interesting and challenging and attractive until you’re bored.
What golden bit of online dating advice would you give?
Don’t say you’re funny, be funny. Unless you’re not, in which case perhaps celibacy is more your thing.
