Thanks very much for the feedback, comments and emails I've had thus far - keep them coming and add me on Facebook - I'm lurking there under Alex Humphreys - if you want/you're into Facebook stalking etc

(Yes; I am wearing a handmade beard costume in that picture)


While psychic ability is an important skill to have, it is not one that I require my potential husband to have (though obviously it wouldn't be an undesirable skill)

Contrary to popular belief I am not obsessed with height, just 5'9/10 and look silly wandering about with someone shorter than me (see left)

NB. I am obviously wearing 6" heels in this photo...and my friend is short.

And finally...feel free to send any criticisms, witticisms, queries, feedback etc to

Honestly, I'm not mad...

Sorry, just to add:

Another avenue I am keen to explore is blind dating; do you know anyone who fulfils the following criteria and would be willing to date me?

1. Male
2. As tall or taller than me.
3. Sense of humour.

As you can see, I don't ask for much...Any help would be much appreciated!

N.B. Obviously no one is under an obligation to marry me and the idea of marriage may not even be mentioned if not applicable.


Hello and welcome to my blog.

My name is Alex and I am a 23 year student in my final year at art college.

As part of my course we have to complete an FMP (Final Major Project)For mine, I have decided to do something a little bit different and ensure that I am remembered for years to come! I have chosen to focus on the subject of marriage and am going to attempt to find myself a potential husband over the next three months.

I plan to explore many avenues, including speed dating, arranged marriages and of course internet dating.

This is something I am really serious about and would love to be able to exhibit a marriage certificate in my final exhibition!

In the words of my housemate...

"Alex is unique to say the least. She's pretty funny, with a fairly dark sense of humour. When she wants something she gets it at any cost, or any number of strongly worded letters. She loves strongly worded letters. She has a very strong personality that's either really addictive or a bit intimidating, and is very caring towards the people she loves, but probably wouldn't let them know.

She puts chilli and garlic in everything she eats and goes a bit weird on coffee. She's my number one source for weird websites and articles and has a penchant for kitsch - particularly Jesus memorabilia. Her washing always smells good even though she has a cigarette in hand about 25-30% of the day, which is pretty weird.

The advice I'd give to potential candidates would be never to disturb her if she's reading the paper or watching The Hills and don't be surprised if you have to compete with the cat for affection.

Otherwise go for it. She's alright"

Er..and in my own words:

Hello, I enjoy sitting about, reading Jilly Cooper novels, fabulous moustaches, wearing hats, good spelling and grammar, nice typography, Charlie Brooker, b3ta and collecting novelty Jesus memorabilia. I love socialising with friends, going to the cinema, visiting the pub, travelling, reading and relaxing and enjoy films and walks in the park and all that jazz too.
