- are you single?
I looked on those sites the same as you would Autotrader. There full of used vehicles. You want to test ride a few cars, as close together as possible, for comparisson purposes before deciding that you’d rather ride your bike anyways.
Interesting thread to read from a non-single girls perspective, if I were a bloke I’d be single out of choice. I annoy myself… Definitely avoid emotional ones mboy, women can store up a whole load of crazy!Posted 8 years agoLycraLoutMember
Bubbly = fat!
and really REALLY REALLY annoying
Anyway single for about 10 years, 6 mths=long term. Tried a dating website, met one really mental case, one quite nice lass but nothing happened and a lovely woman I’m with a year later. She probably is mental, but see above, same kind of mental as me, so woohooPosted 8 years ago
everybody’s pretty mental once you scratch the surface; you just need to find a variety of unhinged that works with yours.
Yep, this pretty much nails it. It’s when people become convinced they’re totally sane and everyone else has some kind of problem that they’re a small step away from dismembering prostitutes and making stuff out of them.Posted 8 years agosharkiMember
Single, mainly due to my lifestyle choice.
Being homeless and Jobless aren’t massive factors in making a bloke on the cusp of 40 yrs old eligible..or at least so you might think…
It’s bizarre really, wherever i wander, the more adventures i have, the more random my life gets, i seem to become someone of interest. With the love and admiration for all things living, my positive outlook, optimistic views. Having the time of day to talk with nice people and to offer help where i can, sharing life through my eyes, etc..
It appears my lack of material things means little to some women and they want to take me in, perhaps to mother me, care for me, maybe just to saturate themselves with my carefree and spiritual calm..
If i was to settle i’d not be alone for long, however i still fear i’d end up with a wrong un again. Torn and damaged i am, still hurting from the last evil spell from the ex. From her i lost my freedom which almost stole my life.
When it’s time, that time will be right only then will i be single no more.
Sharki, Happy dating all you seekers of the unknown.Posted 8 years ago
I’ve come across a few emotionally unhinged blokes, but never one that explodes with crazy and are unmanageable
tbf, i share an office with someone who researches domestic violence and I wouldn’t be in a huge hurry to agree with that, at least based on the things I hear.
sharki, blessed be man. I hope the spell gets banished and your paths are full of possibility.Posted 8 years ago
HeathenWoods that is a very fair point, I’ll come back to this in a few weeks once I’ve started working with male perpetrators of DV… Although, I think I view that kind of explosion different to a female explosion of crazy, perhaps cos females can twist or confuse everything so incredibly that it becomes complicated and scary.Posted 8 years ago
Hmm, I’d say reality – particularly emotional reality (if there is such a thing) – is complicated and scary! I tend to find that men simplify it in a way that means they don’t have to face up to its complexities until a point comes when fate forces their hand and then -snap- the shit hits the fan. Still, with six billion people in the world, all getting it on in a wild variety of ways, there’s always going to be a lot of different perspectives about this 🙂Posted 8 years ago
Hmm I like the way you put it Heathen, maybe that’s why men and women do work together.. Men try and simplify any issues a female may be facing (I know Philconsequence does and it helps me a truck load!) and females can somehow guide a male into the complexities a little more so and thus the world is harmonious….Posted 8 years agoemma82Member
I like this thread! I’ve never been single really cos I was legally a child (@ just turned 17) when I met my OH so have no idea what it would be like. I have a few single friends but that’s not through choice, they just don’t seem to be able to find someone and with the one, she wants to be with someone but is now so independent she probably scares a few blokes off because they aren’t allowed to encroach too much or she gets rid.Posted 8 years ago
Ha ha, have you seen how many lasses have pictures of themselves skydiving on those dating websites? Apparently they also like staying in with a bottle of wine and a dvd, in between jumping out of light aircraft.
Yes !. I’m not sure what the message is. I’ve jumped out of a plane, and I like red wine.
However, I’m not sure how attractive as a potential partner that makes me ?.

Hopefully you’ve sorted your feet out ?.Posted 8 years ago
umm, I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t thought about it, or wondered about being with someone else, especially through some of our rough patches but I genuinely think that we have something very special and have grown together as we have gotten older rather than apart as some people who get together young do. I don’t for one second think that I would be better throwing it away just to see what happens. The way I see it if I wake up in the morning happy that hubby to be is next to me, albeit probably farting, then I’ll put up with the farting and stick with him 🙂 I find it funny that some people get so freaked out by it but I wouldn’t change anything, Im a very lucky girl.
p.s. not sure about the feet, I can’t smell. Ill have to ask the other half later!Posted 8 years agosupertrampMember
emma82, well done you!
no, don’t dump him just to test my theory, casual friendship through a forum is not that important 😉
I often wonder though if people have a ‘pairing mode’ for a certain stage of their lives, and yours was obviously in sync with someone else. Does it get harder to be a ‘significant other’ in direct proportion to the amount of time spent alone?Posted 8 years agoKitMember
Yup I’m single. Is it a lifestyle choice? Er… kinda. I meet plenty of ladies I’d like to date, but who are either not single themselves or aren’t interested in a speccy ginger. But on the other hand, there’s no way I want to be in a relationship; I got messed up pretty bad a few years back 🙁Posted 8 years ago
