Yoga can't even bear to go back online to report it! The site was teeming with picture-less profiles (many belonging to openly married men) tonight, all looking for intimate encounters. I'm sure I was on last Saturday night at some point, and it wasn't like that. Depressing doesn't even begin to describe it hmm.

OhWesternWind Sat 24-Nov-12 22:07:31

Dog I'm sure you can block out IE seekers. But ewwww - as a profile pic?????

Evening all!!

Not liking the fish explanation got to be a better reason. I might email ten users with big fish just to ask.

Mr Knox is still going. Date Thursday included some snogging. And second base ;-)

4th date tomorrow evening. And arranging cinema for Friday night. Still not sure on the sex thing, maybe Friday. Maybe ill stick with acting like a teen a while longer.

fuzzy just a few details wouldn't jinx it, surely? grin

worldcitizen Sat 24-Nov-12 22:13:53

I'd say the fish thing has to do with showing off being a hunter, a warrior hmm and something to do with willies wink

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:15:27

Yay fuzzy!

Evening all, checking in to the new thread smile

With regards to "how many dinner dates can you go on?"

I have shared this before and resolved it with the help of the lovely people on this thread.

I dated (I use the term loosely) a lovely man for approximately 3 months. 3 months = 12 weeks. I saw him roughly twice a week, sometimes more. 12 x 2 = 24 dates. We would go for dinner, people watching, I met his friends, his parents knew about me. Reader, there was hugging and sleeping in the same bed. There was no kissing or PDAs thank God, hate PDAs

It got to the point where I regarded him as a friend and I didn't know what he wanted from me. hmm although who buys their friend a £100 bottle of perfume for no reason and tells their parents about a "friend"

Dinner dates are good if you like company and food.

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:16:15

Oh God I'm so tired, sorry if my post doesn't make sense or add anything to the conversation.

blush

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:17:24

Dog you can block IE people from contacting you. Think it's under settings.

worldcitizen Sat 24-Nov-12 22:17:32

There was hugging and sleeping in the same bed and no kissing??? That sounds odd.

OhWesternWind Sat 24-Nov-12 22:20:58

I've said this before on this thread, but although I can see the willie = sports car/ power tool/ baguette I am really not sure that a fish cuts it as a phallic symbol. Fish, well, they always struck me as a bit feminine. Yes, they're powerful but they're sinuous, sleek, mysterious, unknown and misunderstood. And a large percentage of the population thinks they don't feel pain ... I rest my case m'lud.

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:21:05

I know world. hmm

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:23:15

Western grin I like that fish explaination.

I don't get the car photo.

Well I do. It's a status symbol "look at my shiny metal box on wheels investment, I can provide for you.

I couldn't give a shit about your car. A photo of your face would be nice.

Scattylatte Sat 24-Nov-12 22:23:22

Evening. Just had goats cheese, chips and mushroom in a pub. Home early.

So, bodybuilder was.....very good company. Don't fancy him at all. Although pretty flash he was in fact very good humoured, intelligent and thoughtful.
Half way through the date he asked me if I thought his shirt was too big. I said I couldn't tell to which he replied 'hang on...let me give you a twirl!.....

snape Id love a night out drinking, music and fun. My friends all want to eat and chat. All the time. I've got limited opportunity for pure fun.

worldcitizen Sat 24-Nov-12 22:25:25

I think it's more about the effort as in having patience etc. which makes fishing such an achievement and you also can eat it, so possibly having to do with this provider stuff, and it has to do with outdoor stuff and all that.

I have been around the world quite a bit, and I swear no matter where I was, regardless of nationality, culture, religion, age you name it ALL MEN seemed to like to barbecue, so what's all that about???

worldcitizen Sat 24-Nov-12 22:27:34

Oh mac yep the car thing, that's amazing how many do that. I also do not give a flying f... about the car he is driving.

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:28:11

Scatty arf at "I'll give you a twirl"

I know what you mean. Why's everyone so food focussed? ignores plans for the next week that all revolve around food

world I wish I knew.

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:29:29

And also the bloody stupid "on a motorbike wearing a helmet photo" by all means have a photo of you on your bike. But as your profile picture? Noooo.

WhatDoesTheDogSay Sat 24-Nov-12 22:30:16

Western, yes, his actual cock as his profile pic. In his hand, with a few pubes visible too. Boak.

Mac, thanks, my account is set up so that IE seekers can't contact me. They were just all over the site tonight. Quite weird, there's not even a full moon!

worldcitizen Sat 24-Nov-12 22:30:43

Only say food and pleasure substitute...grin

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:33:04

Eww Dog thanks for that description. envy < that is not envy.

WhatDoesTheDogSay Sat 24-Nov-12 22:41:12

Sorry, mac, realised it was tmi after I'd posted! Going to try and sleep now. Tomorrow's another day and all that grin.

OhWesternWind Sat 24-Nov-12 22:42:54

Dog they're getting desperate coming up to Christmas. Don't want to spend the festive season alone with only a cock on hand to provide festive cheer Have heard it's s strange night from my cousin in Wales who's on PoF too!

The food thing is from a couple of threads ago when someone suggested that any man, anywhere, will talk on the subject of what have you had/are having fit breakfast/dinner/tea or lunch/dinner depending on whereabouts in the uk you come from. It leads to some nice,cosy,domestic chat. I love it!!

Antonym where are you? Im standing by my front door withy bags packed ...

OhWesternWind Sat 24-Nov-12 22:43:46

Excuse typos: pissed, but you can get the gist.

MacAndCheese Sat 24-Nov-12 22:49:02

People love to talk food. confused I got to hear all about my friends breakfast the other day - she'd made French toast - but still hmm

I prefer eating it.
