I used to host plentyoffish parties in Leeds 😀 As well as regular dating, there are many parties hosted by members, and these can be a good laugh and you meet people in person. I got to have quite a few new friends via the parties, and yes, a wee bit of luck there too.
Also, Guardian is quite good, including the phone lines, but its far cheaper to do your own add first and listen to replies.Posted 7 years agoCregMember
I use plenty of fish
Although going on the girls on there in my area it needs to be renamed "plenty of chav munter mothers"…have met one or two really nice girls on there though (not chav munters)
Tried Match.com too, sunk £40 into it and the only contact that was successful ended up being some mental casePosted 7 years agoWheelsuckerMember
Thinking about using online dating – I've had a look at some of the free sites, but they seemed to be filled with the kind of semi-literate text speak that doesn't fill me with optimism. So, where should I be looking to find the beautiful, intelligent, outdoorsy types that are bound to fall in love with me? 😉Posted 7 years ago
Nightmare! I was getting messages from 27 year old blokes asking if I wanted to have fun. 😆
Those who know me will appreciate the comedy value of this – I'm hardly 'cougar' material. 🙄
Actually some time ago a few Northern riders were talking about organising a 'Social Networking Ride'. Don't think it actually happened though.Posted 7 years ago

I'm a 30 year old bloke. Are you looking for mutual disappointment and an insatiable appetite for seafood based puns?
An interest in biscuits and semi-obscure mid-90's slacker rock is preferred, but not essential.
Meet me outside Krispy Kreme in West Quay at 13.00 tomorrow, I'll be wearing a purple velvet smoking jacket and carrying a copy of European Language School Advertisement Spotter.
On a slightly more serious note, My Single Friend seems to be the best of the bunch. Full of pretty girls with varied hobbies, ambition and an ability to spell.Posted 7 years agotomsticklandMember
All the various sites claim to have a unique feature that makes them better, but they're all the same really. I've tried a few over the years and lost interest in them pretty quickly.
Is there any secret or are people either very good looking, good liars, or just put a lot of effort into them? I don't seem to have the willpower with them. Real life starts to look a lot more interesting after a while.Posted 7 years ago
So, you're not coming?!
Alright, clearly you're used to sophistication so I can probably stretch to a rocket and crayfish sandwich on focaccia at Pret.
Sophistication? Nah cos picnic rides are more my type of thing. Except I'm currently not riding my bike. 😥

Plenty of fish – free so gets a wide range of, erm how can I say it, "interesting people".
Dating direct – more women than men (as per most sites). Female friend at work got 200 emails in a couple of days. I got circa 10 in 3 months. No one replied to my emails – think the picture of the single speed put them off.
Fitness Singles – wow, people contacted me and everyone replied to my emails – some even commented on the single speed 😆 Everyone seemed normal. Not many people on there so you might have to travel.Posted 7 years ago

What a job to sort the wheat from the chaff. 🙂 Actually I was quite amazed at the lack of effort people made with their profiles. Aside from spelling (not a big deal), it was the inability to construct a meaningful sentence. I would re-read several times and wonder what they were whittering on about.
