Welcome to Tough Love
👩💻 I’m Tiffany Philippou and I’m a single 35-year-old East London gal blogging through my break-up. Earlier this year, I caught my partner cheating on dating apps. You can read the full story here:
I write about grief, mental health, productivity, love, sex and relationships. This newsletter is about building a good life when things haven’t gone to plan 🍋
Expect honest tough love truths about the challenges of navigating transitionary eras of our lives. I also write an agony aunt column called, ‘Dear Tiff,’ where I provide answers to readers' questions on topics such as friendship, work, dating, and money.
Tough Love promises gossip, insights, life hacks, and a sprinkling of self-help. I hope that you’ll take some of the practical lessons in this newsletter, but mostly that in reading my stories, you’ll feel less alone.
