DO NOT READ IF YOU ARE NOT INTERESTED IN A DATE I WENT ON.

DDD - It went well thanks and i enjoyed watching the rugby with her. Wales lost and normally i would go into a state of depression but she cheered me up.

I spoke to her yesterday and she asked me if i wanted to see her on tuesday and when i replied in the affirmative she promptly invited herself around my flat to cook me dinner. She emailed me today telling me to get the Champagne in! I am pretty suprised at her boldness but not put off so far. Anyway, all good and all very exciting so far.

    What were your views on her

    1) big hands

    2) Stubbly chin

    3) Suspicious resemblance to DDD in a dress

    4) 'her' habit of constantly measuring her thighs with a tape measure?

    yes, yes YES!!! Get in there my son!!!

    I've got a right proper smile on my face! Happy for you!!!

    Tuesday is a wierd day to be dating! Make sure that room is tidy, the laundry basket is empty, dishes washed, new bedsheets, floor hoovered and be prepared to call in sick at work or tell them you got a doctors appointment so you can come in late... that's all I'm saying. 8) Also leave the X-box/PS3 controller out if she asks you for a game of Pro Evo, she's a keeper :wink: If she has an interest in bikes, propose to her on the spot!

    Sounds like she is keen! One male sage peice of advice I got: Woman about the age of 27/28 girls stop playing games and get real forward, I'm told its a body clock thing similar to how I do most of my work at 4.45 desperate to finsh at 5pm on the dot. MMMMmmmm I like me a forward Woman, who is classy with it.

    In other news, Arsenal (like me) just cannot score... :cry: I feel like Greg T.

    Cheers - I shall be cutting a Mary Poppins-esque dash tonight – pinny, duster, marigolds, hoover, skipping and whistling happily.


    Yes I was warned about the keenness in the late twenties thing...but I don't mind all that, its a good thing. Can't be doing with games.

    Well good luck anyway!

    NB remember to rearrange your music CDs - no Prodigy at the top etc! She will notice!

    to add to DDD's list of things to do....make sure the bathroom/WC is clean, but don't leave any bleach in the pan!

    Oh, good call. They love fancy soap too.

    Can you put all your smelly shoes into a friend's house for the night maybe?

    Sounds good. Why not save yourself a few years of hassle though and dump her now before it's too late, then find one you don't like and give her your house now. It'll save on the divorce costs and there won't be any kids to make it a messy separation.

    I think romance is great, but I would like to offer some advice (from a 52 year old single guy), don't be someone you are not just to impress a woman. Be yourself, if the chemistry is truly there, she will see past the things that you think women don't like. And remember, just like men, women are not perfect. Perhaps I'm a bitter old twisted person. If only I'd taken up cycling earlier . . .

    Erm, ok I'm half your age so please educate me where I'm going wrong.

    I'm all for being myself but surely there is nothing wrong going the extra mile to 'seal the deal...' At no point am I saying not to be yourself but surely there is nothing wrong with making a little effor to show a little interest, it's how you indicate your interested without saying it out loud and skit.

    Quite right!

    What about pink champers and some strawberries. Burds love that. Oh and don't forget to turn the heating up, 1 'cos burds feel the cold and 2, well I'm sure you know why.

    So, Jash, have I understood this right? You basically bake your women in order to get them to disrobe. Classy. Very Classy. :shock:

    I was thinking that too.
    After a very bad choice (series of choices) I would say the first marriage/relationship I had = VERY wrong.

    Come on Linsen, I know you want to get into this discussion and I have so wanted to debate with you... :oops:

    Anyway,

    It is an interesting peception and the true answer, I believe, is that a choice of life and living when not harmful to yourself or others cannot be defined as right or wrong but more accurately is a mere preference subjective to the individual whose life said preference is attached to.

    Judgemental? Me?

    This thread is about pulling chicks, though. So singledom may suggest NBG at that. Relationship = managed it. Once, at least.
