    The Fox Files Uncovered: Will It Really Be You, Man Number Two?

    Frankie woke up on the morning of her date to what she could only assume was an extremely bad omen – paws pitter-pattered outside her bedroom door so she ran out for a look to see what destruction pooch was causing today. Her beloved pooch was an adorable and lady-like, demon dog with an attitude and constant need for attention. In fact, they do say dogs start to resemble their owners overtime, except pooch had hair that was much more soft and silky than Frankie’s. Frankie walked out of her bedroom, dreading the aftermath that would follow. “POOCH, PUT MY KNICKERS DOWN!!” turned out to be that aftermath. She was…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: Double Date Dilemma

    Frankie knew she could spend forever in bed, complaining about the fact that she was out of luck and out of love. The day had come , she knew it was time to get back out there and stop moping over a man who only liked the idea of her when she was convenient – Like a three month old magazine in a waiting room or dark chocolate when someone else had eaten all the milk chocolate. After the McDonalds scenario, she knew she was going to be seeing him around the place often, so there was no point over-analysing the tone of his voice when he says ‘hello’ or…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: Driven Crazy

    Frankie only had two regrets in life: 1) Her entire dating history and 2) The fact that she never learned to drive when she turned 17. Instead of complaining and then putting it off like everything else in her life, she decided there was no time like the present to prepare for life on the open road. Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before she realised that the nerves in her life also ended up in the passenger seat instead of the boot. She didn’t worry about normal things like crashing the car, instead she worried about whether the conversation would be awkward with the driving instructor, or if she would be…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: Staging The Shoe

    It was 11:30 on a Sunday after a sleepover. The sound of a wailing Gracie livened Frankie out of her sleepy state.  “He is on a date!” “Wait, what?” Gracie had been seeing (whatever that means these days) a guy on and off for about two months. There was a few smirky face emojis and too much juicy gossip landing in the group chat every Sunday morning. However, like many men these days, he was completely unpredictable and oblivious to the fact that this group of women were now completely invested in his schedule. “Wait Gracie, why do you think he’s on a date?” “He was being completely bizarre all…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: Insta Investigations

    Frankie had just about recovered from bumping into Kyler unexpectedly 10 days ago. She decided there was only so many meanings she could pull out of that meeting – She swayed towards fate until she remembered the amount of times she spent eating his curry dip after saying she didn’t want any. Fate was a myth, they were both just carb creatures and the universe thought it would have a good laugh. Her day was going relatively okay, until it hit 6pm. She decided against going out, not that she had much of a choice with 8.65 sitting in her bank account. She flicked through her Snapchat stories, not too…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: Guys Before Twisty Fries?

    It was a normal Wednesday morning for Frankie – Hair in a hun bun and makeup free. She headed into town to do some shopping before starting work. She could afford to look like the offspring of Shrek and Gollum simply because it was unlikely she would see anyone of extreme significance. Or so she thought… The morning was going great, she did her usual River Island browse before heading to Penneys to see if she could find anything similar on the 3 euro rail. Unfortunately she was out of luck this time and just ended up with a basket of reduced makeup she definitely didn’t need. To reward herself…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: Spirits With A Ghost

    She doesn’t know how or why, but somehow Frankie ended up at a party with her latest ghost. She knew the girls were going to kill her for being such a weakling, therefore, she planned to keep it under wraps for as long as possible. Possibly even forever if she ended up kissing him, which she was 99% sure she would. Her willpower was at an all time low, ranging somewhere between -75 and -100. As long as she could stay away from him all night, she didn’t expect it to drop anywhere below this (but luckily she had shaved her legs that morning.) The room was dotted with people…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: The Midnight Man

    Frankie woke up to four missed calls from a recently deceased, short-lived romance. “How romantic” she thought as she checked the time of the calls. Ah, 2:27, just as he would have been stumbling out of the chipper pondering where to go next. She knew that must have been a missing scene from the classics – Ryan Gosling and Richard Gere were bound to passionately chase the girl while holding a burger and sporting lager breath, right? She had to admit that he seemed rather charming at first with a great sense of humour and many promises of a date. Although, these traits were slightly overshadowed by his late night…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: Grim And Tonic

    Frankie woke up to the horrific reality of the night before. The taste of gin still lingered in the back of her throat and the only thing that could be heard coming from her bedroom was the sound of gentle sobs, caused entirely by the gin. She was perfectly aware that she did a lot of cringey things last night and the only person who could make this better was her mum. Ah, the perks of still living at home at 22. “Can you please come in, I need a cuddle” she sent the text to the room across the landing and it wasn’t long before she heard the patter…

    The Fox Files Uncovered: Meet Frankie!

    The musky smell of tan filled the room, as it did every other weekend. The dressing table in front of her was smothered in makeup palettes, three unfinished mugs of tea and a bowl of cheesy pasta  – all of which vibrated as her phone kept going off. Four Snapchats, six Instagram likes and absolutely none of which were from the man she hoped for. Of course why would they be? There was a bloody good chance that after a situation which could only be described as World War 3, and the casual throwing around of the “Gobsh**e” adjective that she was likely to never hear from him again. She…
