Anyone just given up on finding love?
I know what you mean, think I might be going down that road myself, having missed an opportunity 7/8 years ago, and taking a (proverbial) kick in the plums a couple of years ago. Im 28 now.
I’m trying to stay positive, you never know when Ms Right might just appear from nowhere.Posted 4 years ago
Being serious – I was in a similar position before I met Mrs D, I really was although I never even got as far as meeting any that were remotely interested in me.
I met Mrs D completely by chance, in a night club when considerably worse for wear and we’ve been together nearly 12 years now so it can happen…

Doesn’t really matter if you’ve given up on it or not. Either you’ll meet some foxy babe who gets your awesome coolness and rad MTB moves or you won’t… I reckon you will. 😉
And when you do meet this babe, try not to be all miserable and wan – don’t tell her you’re ‘off the market’ and get into that whole enigma thing. Just switch back into Love Gear IV and schmmove her, dude.
This might be good advice.Posted 4 years agoflowerpowerMember
Ha… am wondering about it just now 😕
But in a few months time, I’ll be right as rain again, enjoying life and then I guess I’ll give it just one more go… (and I’ve got a few years head start on you).
Maybe you should give up – that when everyone tells me it happens 🙂
EDIT – just remember there are some of us birds out there still, who are in the same boat. I don’t have two heads, can ride a bike, hold a conversation and rarely dribble – just haven’t met the right guy yet.Posted 4 years agobailsSubscriber
I don’t think there is a “the one”. If there was then what are the odds, out of the 3.5 billion women on the planet, of you meeting her at such a time and place that you’re able to realise that she is “the one”, and that you’re also “the one” for her?
Have you made it into such a big thing that you’ve then made it impossible for anyone to live up to it?Posted 4 years ago
Badnewz is pretty much a lifelong bachelor now – I was never bothered about having kids but it would be nice to have a stable, attractive lass to share life with. If I was to put more effort into it I’d get a foreign lass – your money goes further abroad, but you have to be prepared to constantly admit that their country is better than Britain. And no country is better than Britain! Grrr….Posted 4 years agobadllamaMember
I was just about to say go here http://www.pof.com/
Been beaten too it 😀
Reality check # (1) No one on the planet will be “perfect” in every way life an’t like that so once you have swallowed that one down read this
Reality check # (2) Your not perfect either. 😀
Personal experience says if you go out not looking for it you will find it. If you go out looking for it you will never find it.
Mix with new people do new things see what happens. 🙂Posted 4 years agofaddaSubscriber
28 is still v young, you’ll be fine
Houns – 35 is still very young, too!
I’m 48, and haven’t given up yet. But “actively looking” is, I think, always doomed, for all sorts of reasons.
Mostly, I believe that you need to get happy on your own, then there’s a better chance of someone finding you attractive (and then it’s over to you!). If no-one does come along, then you’ve found out how to be happy on your own, so it’s all good…Posted 4 years agouwe-rMember
Go on plenty of fish website, mates just split up with his mrs, its free apparently and he’s having many a good night thanks to that site.
Sure it’ll help refocus your mind…
I have a mate who recently did this. From my limited understanding the girls on there are not keepers!Posted 4 years ago
I’ve been out with a Pole, an Italian (long term – Italian women complain like crazy), a Peruvian, a Taffy, South African, Japanese, the list goes on…my favourite was the Pole as she was hot and traditional, but also a bit of a slag so marrying her would have been a nightmare unless you’re into wife sharing.Posted 4 years agoFrankensteinMember
Thought the same as you Houns.
Make sure you’re happy with yourself first. Sort that out!
Don’t give up. Change strategy.
She’s out there somewhere. Don’t look too hard.
Never used a dating site myself. But friends go on plenty of fish to meet mingers for a quick fling. Don’t date women in nightclubs either.Posted 4 years ago
(but the only thing that would make me happy is to be in love)
I’d be careful with that – I’ve known enough people who are head over heels and then six months later hate each other with a passion.
If you can find happiness on your ownesome then you will probably find the birds flock to your tree more – confidence is the thing they find most attractive, with a bit of mystery at the beginning to get them interested.Posted 4 years agobadllamaMember
Yup Poles are VERY out going IMO as well, Taffs are mad a foook (the South Wales ones I had fun with anyway, Ausies are good fun ( communte was a killer though) 😀
badnewz in my experience all women complain eventually depending on the time you have with them it’s whether you can put up with it defines whether they stay or go 😀Posted 4 years ago
