About Me

Better Date Than Never is a dating and relationships blog written by me – Louise – a 30-something blonde-haired, blue-eyed mum of 2 from Nottinghamshire. It was launched on 25th April, 2020, after I noticed there wasn’t much help and advice available online for people struggling to maintain a healthy relationship with their partners during the Coronavirus pandemic.

This year was also the year that marked the end of my previous relationship, which lasted for 14-years. And I thought it would be good to have a little online space where I could share my thoughts and feelings on dating in my 30’s, and where people could follow my journey on the road to love, learn from my mistakes, and take heed of the little pearls of wisdom I’ve picked up over the years.

My blog name is a play on the popular saying Better Late Than Never, and I chose this because there’s a special someone in my life right now who has been trying to get me to go on a date with him for well over a decade. And hopefully when this is all over we’ll finally be able to make that happen. But I guess that’s a whole other blog post …

Louise Smith - Founder of Better Date Than Never

I currently have over 8-years of blogging experience behind me, and hope to make Better Date Than Never as successful as some of my other publications, and have plans to eventually run a YouTube channel and Podcast alongside it. Over the years I’ve been lucky enough to have been featured in the press, nominated for awards and spoken at workshops up and down the country. This year I plan to get more actively involved with the blogging community and would love to write a book!


Over the years I’ve worked with brands in many ways, and I’m always open to suggestions, collaborative campaigns and championing products I truly believe in.
