A dear friend of mine (yes...a friend, I have a pretty redhead of a girlfriend...so no...not for me!) who I've known at uni for the past four years has somewhat had 'zero' luck with the ladies, despite being nice, outgoing, standard attractive male. Myself and my other co-conspirators made him pledge a new years resolution that he'd find someone within a week, even it was just simple, dirty student drunk night in Leeds hook-up. That would abate our fascination with his love-life and all in all bring cheers all around.
However, this is looking unlikely as ever. So for his benefit, we're considering responding to 'casual relationship' ads on Gumtree. Now before cries of 'some friend' you are etc come slinging my way, it's all meant in good humour, and he does see the funny side to it all (well...so far).
But on a serious note, given that I realise no-one would actually describe their personal goings on, on STW, over something of such a sordid nature, any interesting or what we're more worried about 'don't go there' stories that STW members have of 'a friend of a friend' would be appreciated.
We don't really want him to die/get abducted/drawn into a cult.
So far (the girls among the group of friends are also in on it, one did volunteer to solve the problem and 'do it for England' but given she known as the proverbial bicycle amongst our extended group of friends, we would like to spare him this) we've written out a few draft responses, and this is proving a far more entertaining subject matter than writing our dissertations and revising for exams.
So again, if the moderators can stomach this (totally accepted if they don't!) myself and my house would like to know of such things so we can try and stitch our (possibly soon to be ex-friend) up with a little New Years cheer. Try and keep it tolerable for the mods.
