Once she became sexually involved with her then-boyfriend, he revealed that he thought he was "a woman in a man's body" and began wearing women's underwear and stockings to bed.

"At first I thought it was a fantasy thing," says Chosnyk, who didn't mind a little role-playing.

"The idea was to chronicle my commitment to staying single for six months," she says.

"But the problem is that now I have started dating someone, and I've been blogging about him." Her solution?

The acclaimed British melodrama follows, Gemma (Suranne Jones), a GP, after she finds out her husband has been having an affair.

"James hasn't watched season one of Doctor Foster, so he doesn't know what we know.This show's hypothesis is if you push a person far enough and traumatise them then they'll respond and kick back and defend what they need to defend." Despite an extremely awkward first date, Gemma drags James to her ex's house-warming party even though they are not invited."We never know what's going on in people's lives when we ask someone out."You can't do that in a new relationship because you don't know the other person yet." How soon is too soon?Besides, waiting to reveal a potential deal breaker such as herpes or 0,000 in credit-card debt is just good dating decorum, says syndicated sex columnist Dan Savage, author of "The Commitment: Love, Sex, Marriage, and My Family."

"If somebody sits down on the first date and says, 'I'm into spanking,' even if you are into spanking, [too], you might react negatively to that." On the flip side, "withholding information like 'I'm a cross-dresser' till the wedding night" is bad form, he says.
