About Charly

Charly Lester is a blogger, journalist and dating industry expert.

In 2013 Charly set herself the challenge of going on 30 blind dates before her 30th birthday.  The blog she wrote about the challenge went viral, and led to her working at The Guardian.  Charly is the former Global Head of Dating at Time Out magazine, and now runs the UK, European and US Dating Awards – a set of international awards for dating apps, websites, matchmakers and dating experts.

In this blog, Charly hopes to commit to ‘paper’ some of the random stories of her life which feel like fiction, but are completely true.
