- Anyone just given up on finding love?
Despair and Deception, Love’s ugly little twins
Came a-knocking on my door, I let them in
Darling, you’re the punishment for all of my former sins
I let love in
Not that i’m bitter of course
Hi – I used to enjoy wallowing with a bit of Nick Cave – my favourite lyric
Here I am, little lamb…
Let all the bells in whoredom ring
All the crooked bitches that she was
(Mongers of pain)
Met a nice girl 11 years ago after I had just about given up hope. Have lived with her and her son for eight years and our daughter is now six.
We do not share many interests but do values (as per Zippykona) and complement each other well.
Still enjoy a bit of doomy music though!Posted 4 years agoadjustablewenchMember
Caught a bit of nick cave at Glasto, appeals to me on some level but I dont listen often – but my sons were shocked by the lyrics – as you would expect at 8&10!
@karinofnine – I have posted a link to a charity ride ending in Winsor, let me know if you or anyone you know fancies it 🙂Posted 4 years agobravohotel8erMember
Not to detract from the majesty of Nick Cave, but I like to listen
to Gentlemen by the Afghan Whigs when feeling down about relationships
followed by 1965 by the same band when convincing myself to give them
I’m meeting a Swiss-German girl in 4 hours, will see what happens.Posted 4 years agoiamsporticusMember
I give you the definitive newly single lyric from the Cave-meister:
You told me you’d stick by mePosted 4 years ago
Through the thick and through the thin
Those were your very words
My fair-weather friend
You were my brave-hearted lover

A colleague runs this Single Social for anyone in Sheff or surrounding area who fancies trying the single dating scene.
If I were ever to find myself single again and with two teenage boys I have no idea how I would find the time/energy/enthusiasm to even get ready to go on a date, let alone be anyone’s idea of even adequate company – I’m guessing being face down, snoring in the entrée is frowned upon.Posted 4 years agosolarpoweredMember
Don’t give up Houns… As someone/many have said, it’s down to how you feel about yourself! Respect yourself and others will naturally respect you. Love yourself and others will naturally love you.Posted 4 years ago
After being in relationship after relationship from about 18 to 28 I decided to give the whole lot up! I wanted to be on my own and just go have some fun. ( I wonder if this is where you’re at at the moment really) It forced me to find myself and actually accept they some bits of me I wasn’t aware of! (Acceptance/acknowledgement of ones own little failures or weaknesses is essential )
It WILL happen but only once you are ok with ‘you!’
Ps; I can highly recommend singles nights…. They are GREAT FUN!!!
Pps; @ Drac- that’s a fabulous song! *runs off to find old tapes*bwfc4eva868Member
It’s taken 12 years. I have finally found someone who I actually want to marry, I don’t want kids, she has a 17 year old daughter who is great and very bright and I treat her like a mate and offer advice and support when she needs it. But I don’t discipline her as that’s her mum’s job.
My partner is best described as me with female body parts. We enjoy the same things in life, but have some differences in she likes mostly rock music which I like also but predominantly I listen to uplifting Trance, ambient and film scores and Orchestral music.
She supports Manchester City, me Bolton Wanderers, Hibernian and Rochdale. She has got the buzz for mountain biking but her main passion is horse riding. We both live the outdoors, also our animals (5 cats and two border collies)
Both Bolton born and bred, now living in Darwen but miss our home town. Both work in Healthcare, although she works in private sector and me in the NHS.
We do have our moments, she can get stroppy over nothing and I’m stubbourn when she apologises.
But it was worth the 12 months of flirting and waiting for my ex to get out of my life.Posted 4 years agoWheelie goodMember
Definitely don’t give up, but do try to not worry about how and when it might happen again for you.
I was with a guy for 10 years, married for 3 of them, that ended, then was single for a bit, then an old friend came back into my life which turned into a bit more, that ended, single for a bit again, then a little while ago, I had to take my bike in to get fixed and I came out with a date! I have just been on my 1st holiday with the bike shop guy, it’s going well so far, but who knows what the future holds!
You shouldn’t over think things when you’re in a relationship and you shouldn’t over think them when you’re single, just have fun and see where life takes you 🙂Posted 4 years ago
