- "You would though, wouldn't you…. "
If she isn’t, there’s no way in the world I’m putting my prize vegetables anywhere near it thank you very much!
Yebbut… you would though, wouldn’t you?
In my circles of mates I think it’s an attempt to be just a bit more honest. So if a (morally reprehensible, obviously) conversation happens to go along the lines of “I hate so and so, she’s just irritating/ unattractive/ not someone I like”, after about 5 seconds of reflection, both sides of the conversation will generally realise that, being morally reprehensible specimens, if said lady was actually available and either of us had any chance whatsoever… well, you wouldn’t say no really.
As opposed to “If I were single, and she were single, and we’d both had a bit to drink, and we happened to both be naked in the same place, I would actually say to her ‘no thanks love, I’m not interested’ “.
It sounds like some chaps on this thread are rather more upstanding though, which is to be applaudedPosted 4 years agoalpinMember
with dutch courage i find that once i’m at the point of saying “yeah, f$%k it, let’s do it” i’m beyond the point of being able to do it.
Emma Way, so many ways, many of them wrong ways… for the good of humanity. maybe.
there was a lady at a wedding i attended last weekend. she was over 80. if you didn’t know that you would have guessed mid-60s and would have said (in fact i think i did) “you would though, wouldn’t you”.Posted 4 years ago
I always assumed that the phrase was targeted, much as Tucker thought, at ladies who while having some fundamentally abhorrent characteristic, would still be acceptable to take to bed.
So you might discuss the poor personality defects of Emma Way while still accepting that you’d quite happily have sex with her.
So in that respect, I guess I’m about 50/50. Not with Emma Way, I don’t find her attractive at all but there have been women in the past who fit the criteria of NO and yet still, there’s something there that says yes.
I’m not proud of this, I can only apologise. I am but a man and half my brain is in my trousers. I applaud those that have managed to raise the bar.Posted 4 years agototalshellSubscriber
i still take a fair dollop of pride in that my mates used to call me ”the man with no standards” i specialised in the attractive girls mates, those who had strayed once to often to the pie factory and those who only came out in the dark so not to frighten children..i myself was of course perfect and was often called Richard by many ladies i engaged in converstaion.. my milk white complextion and lack of body fat and muscle, shoulder length greasy hair ( with a crimped fringe) and self embroidered denim jacket ensured a steady though infrequent supply of the fairer sex
although i have kept a guilty secret from them almost 35 years.. as an 18yr old ( almost) in a night club i repeatedly turned down the increasingly desperate advances of a friend of one of my mates mothers.. should have given her the benifit of the doubt i suppose..Posted 4 years ago
ha ha – you guys make me laugh. Which is very welcome as i have been in a major sulk after an attempted break-in at my house last night.
The number of you that claim to have standards is actually reassuring – having officially sworn myself of the whole dating thing some time ago it almost gives me hope – or maybe that was just today’s sunshine.Posted 4 years agotheotherjonvSubscriber
You’re going to have to bear with me on this, don’t start throwing stones until you’ve read it all.

My MiL is distinctly presentable for a 70 year old lady. I wouldn’t *quite* bring myself to the point of ‘you would, wouldn’t you’, but if i was maybe 20 years older and the age gap not so big then I might be in that camp.
Which i’m hoping is a good sign, if her daughter continues to develop the same traits and characteristics, then maybe in 20 years time ‘I will be, won’t I’
Apologies to readers under 30 retching at the thought of Granny sex.Posted 4 years ago
The number of you that claim to have standards
….is the key IMO. To be honest, I’m hoping this thread is read with the tongue in cheek mode that most of posts are meant to be!
Very sorry to hear of attempted intruders; most upsetting I know from experience.

‘i never thought i’d ever be doing this to a pensioner’
A classic line my ex’s mum came out with a breakfast soon after her 60th birthday – she told us all how his Dad had been quite amused by the idea the night before
We were quite shocked for her to come out with it – over breakfast with kids about, but good on them.Posted 4 years ago
Thank you BN, very upsetting and completely scuppered the Welsh Ride Thing for me this weekend as i couldn’t leave everything unsecure.
Just glad the two youngest were at their Dad’s. Did make me feel like i needed a man around briefly today – but soon fixed padlocks on everything and installed an alarm and feeling much more empowered now 🙂
Edit: yes appreciate the tounge in cheek-ness of much on here (my own post definitely included in that!)Posted 4 years ago
Nothing like a few padlocks and the use of a screwdriver to empower some manliness; well it works for me. Buy a big torch too 🙂
Without wishing to make a sweeping statements that will get the budding statisticians all foamy-mouthed, but the fact that they’ve had a go at yours means you’re probably safer than the average now; so sleep easy xPosted 4 years ago
No screw drivers – powertools all they way 🙂
I wish it were the case but since I have lived here there has been a steady stream of attempts to get my bikes. They have succeeded twice – the first was my old kawasaki and they then got my Orange. The police recivered the motorbike and I recovered the orange.
Just have to be so careful and hope one day I can afford to live somewhere better :-/Posted 4 years ago
I need one of those? To take my pedals off so they can’t ride away on my bike, or maybe I could throw the pedals at them – time pedals are fairly hefty so they would hurt I guess.
Or just attack them with it – yes you would, wouldn’t you …. (just in case we drifting too far off topic!)
Ah yes I would also do the Seychelles too!Posted 4 years ago
