The love affair with Natalie Lue’s Baggage Reclaim continues for another year as the blog stays at the top of our updated top ten UK relationship and dating blogs.

Using her own overhaul of her life as a guide, Natalie has helped many thousands of readers – go check out her story.
Moving up from the number three spot last year is Forgetting Fairytales, where blogger Ell keeps it real to help her readers become the kind of person they want to be to attract the kind of relationships they deserve. ‘You’re not a “damsel”, you don’t need rescuing and if you’re waiting for that perfect “Prince Charming”, well, you’ll probably be waiting for a while,’ says fairy godmother of relationship blogging Ell. Take her advice – and ours – and go read up on Dating, Relationships, Breakups and Wellbeing.

And moving back away from business and just to the pleasure part of dating and relationship blogging, is ‘The Mizzadventures of Chelsea Black’, which dishes out ‘Black Love, Dating, Relationships and Commentary’ to its dedicated readership. Check out Chelsea’s Random Musings or her Dating Tips (helpfully split into Sex and Misadventures sections, so you can find exactly what you’re looking for).

8. Hey Saturday

Saskia Nelson’s Hey Saturday, featuring in our ranking for another year, created its own genre within the sector and helps daters to do dating photography right. Showing yourself in the best – and truest – light is an important part of connecting with those that will appreciate you to the fullest.

9. A Dating Dad
This dating dad sharing woes and wisdom on modern romance is a new entry to our Dating and Relationship ranking and definitely knows the way to a reader’s heart. Full of memes and pop culture references, A Dating Dad speaks (well writes) in real talk to fellow people out there looking for love (in all the right places, hopefully). ‘If you’re interested in some support and advice from someone who has been there and learned the lessons, drop me a line,’ says the blogger. In the meantime, check out his defence of online dating. And the Boromir memes.
And we round-up this ranking for another year with another blog new to our top ten – ‘a guy’s perspective on dating better and building better relationships’, JoshLoveTalk. Coach, blogger and podcaster Josh’s favourite thing to do is offer advice and perspectives on relationships (as would be confirmed by his close friends, apparently), so head on over to ‘share, educate, question and get inspiration’ for your own love life and life in general. Happy Valentine’s Day for 2022!
