Often described as “bold” and “bossy”, Natasha has a thing for older men and same, sis.

One half of MAFS’ first ever same-sex couple, Amanda marries Tash and sadly receives backlash from her disapproving, conservative family.

2019 Recap!! – – I’ve defiantly had a challenging 5 years but this year felt like the final shedding of life as I know it. – – I broke up with the one girl I thought I’d marry in pursuit of something far better, to find someone who mirrored my world and together we could dominate life at the same level. – – It Takes massive balls to walk away from someone you love and a lot of courage (while fear is still very present) to realise your worth! – – My immediate Family were a major let down for me this year, as I got even closer with my friends and realised yet again, your real family don’t need to be blood related at all!! ????????♀️???????? – – I met new friends, got even closer to my long term friends, and formed alliances with friends I didn’t see coming ???????? – – Major business and life renovations are on the way for 2020. – – I relocated my business to the west in October in a brand new gym which is PT suicide when you have financial responsibility and not relying on your parents. – – Thankfully the gym has been incredibly supportive and amazing to work alongside, but I’ve still had to work 3 jobs while the business has grown very slowly to make ends meet, not knowing some weeks if I’d have enough money to pay my rent. – – After 3 solid years in business, emotionally this is a frustrating and scary place to be. – – I’ve had amazing friends and some family show amazing support this entire year knowing what lies ahead, and I couldn’t have kept so positive without everyone’s love. – – 2019 you were by far the best and worst year for me to date. – – I’m gonna grab a cricket bat and knock you to next Tuesday at midnight, and 2020, will be the year that everyone will remember for the ages ???????????? – – Last of all Smokey got fatter and more beautiful than ever ???????????????? – –

Single mama of two-year-old twin boys. Her ex-hubby left her for another woman when the twins were just six-weeks-old (ugh), and she’s looking for a man who’s down to be a father figure to her kids.
Identifies as sexually fluid and has dated both men and women.
She’s had eight previous partners, seven of which have cheated on her. Nice, huh?
Mishel is understandably on the hunt for someone who is faithful and loyal.
The tea: Apparently the dating pool is teeny tiny in Perth so she’s on a nation-wide hunt for a hubby to appease her traditional Serbian folks.

32 days Sober ! Dry July is about raising funds and awareness for people affected by cancer. Cancer has claimed the life of my uncle, grandfather and such a staggering amount of other Australians that nearly every one of us has been or knows someone affected by this shitty disease. My mate and I set the modest goal of raising a $1000 to do our bit. If you could spare a $ or $$ it would be much appreciated Nearly at the top ! Link in Bio ✌️
