Ah Aero Bubbles. If it helps you to stop munching Velvet, I could share the tale of the time I mixed copious volumes of wine and Aero Bubbles (as a quick meal substitute) grin

Think there were some Malteasers involved too.

See, Never gonna give you up is but a distant memory, no? grin

Give over Juliette!

He had a horrible voice, that man, especially with that special Stock Aitken and Waterman echo effect. I wish so very, very much that I had never mentioned him on this thread.

Poor SP and all the youngsters will be wondering what on earth all we are all blethering on about.

KinNora Sat 13-Apr-13 22:43:02

Why, yes it is Juliette - you've done us a public service.

JoylessFucker Sat 13-Apr-13 22:43:37

Can I be a touch self-indulgent? Having decided to pull myself together and get seriously dating, I was pleasantly surprised at the initial reaction. Now, of course, things have returned to normal shite ... disappearers, dickheads etc. Problem is that I've lost the enthusiasm for the FWBs and have put them out to pasture. Well, all but one, but he'll break my heart one of these days.

Grrrrrrrr ....
wine

Who was it planning the cloning of R&R, Nameless and Mr Nice? Whoever it was, I'm in ...

48howdidthathappen Sat 13-Apr-13 22:45:17

It is confimed. I have become a soppy cow blush

Mr R&R sent me a goodnight text. For the first time, signing off 'love r&r'.

I am a lost cause. But a happy one smile

KinNora Sat 13-Apr-13 23:09:16

Joy I don't think any of us escape momentary self indulgence, have more wine.

Typical of GSM, I've just been liked by some gurning twonk who describes himself as 'over-articulate'. Articulate this pal, over my cold dead body.

KinNora Sat 13-Apr-13 23:11:00

Eeeh 48 you pair of softies grin

Kin sadly, with gsm that's probably exactly what he would do.

48 yep soppy, its good innit grin

Joy I think OD is a bit like a hangover, we just forget how awful it can be until the next time.

VelvetSpoon Sat 13-Apr-13 23:23:00

'Over-articulate'

hahahahaha.

I am convinced if you assembled all the single men in any UK town, and picked out the least appealing specimens in looks and personality, they would all be active on OD sites. Probably messaging lovely women such as us grin

The Ex is just an ignorant bigot, and displayed this a bit today. Nothing directed AT the DC, but suffice to say DS1 wasn't impressed by his choice of language (nor was I when DS1 told me).

As for the other non-flames, I present:

1. Has a GF who is supposedly oh so wonderful etc. Which is why he sent me a cockshot on whatsapp earlier. He has changed his number (I blocked him previously but his pathetic appendage is quite recognisable in it's inadequacy;

2. Is just a cringy embarrassment. Saw some recent photos of him today dressed like a tramp (and I don't just mean scruffy/dishvelled, but like he had taken the most worn out pieces of clothing, stuff you would put aside to do the garden in/use as dusters, and worn them as everyday clothes). and makes 'jokes' about his life/relationship which aren't funny in the slightest.

Honestly, lucky, LUCKY, escapes!!

Over articulated, I wonder if he meant his penis?

Velvet ew, yes lucky escape! GF must be so proud.

KinNora Sat 13-Apr-13 23:42:03

A penis that can go around corners, for example ? Interesting concept Juliette - you'd never be safe would you - nip into the kitchen for a quick Jaffa Cake scoff, and there it'd be, peering at you round the doorframe. Scary.

VelvetSpoon Sat 13-Apr-13 23:45:11

I am crying with laughter at the doorcornering penis grin

I am imagining it like one of those flexible screwdrivers....

Juliette I do feel a bit sorry for the GFs (nos 1 and 2 are different but equally crap men). And glad I'm not either of them.

It would have the added bonus of being extendable.

Winefiend Sat 13-Apr-13 23:59:36

I've just been watching Alien and now I have the image of a Stretch Armstrong-alike penis winding its way round the crevices of my house with a little piranha face on the end.

hmm

overactive imagination

Snapespeare Sun 14-Apr-13 07:17:40

the extendable penis would end up in donnie darko should rephrase that, but it's too early for over articulation....

KinNora Sun 14-Apr-13 08:43:18

In my head the cornering phallus was accompanied by the Mission Impossible theme tune - der der der de der der nenenowwwww nenenowwww ner ner. It's probably for the best that I'm back at work tomorrow.

Catching the train back darn sarf later, oh woe is me.
Showbiz is 'aware' that I'm travelling alone and wants me to text him to let him know I've arrived safely. Part of me thinks 'oh that's nice, he's showing concern', my Damaged by Men Who Claim to Love Me But Treat Me Like Shite centre ( DMWCLMBTMLS) sets off the klaxons and says' I'm not your girlfriend, PANICCCCC, PANICCCCC '

JoylessFucker Sun 14-Apr-13 09:54:51

... and this is one of the MANY reasons why I absolutely lurve this thread. I am absolutely roaring at the extendable penis mission impossibling into donnie darko grin grin

48 I am continuing to love you and R&R <sigh>
Juliette its so good to see that you've recovered your sang froid after ghastly ghastly man
Nora <and breathe>

There'll be way too much I've missed during my mope, so a <wave to thread> time for a brew to gird my loins and off to POF to put up a new profile. Clearly a sucker for pain me ...

lubeybooby Sun 14-Apr-13 09:57:34

Disturbingly, this thread now has me wishing a stretch armstrong penis would chase me round my house it wouldnt have to chase far

This is after laughing at having rick rolled myself... can't get that sodding song out of my head now grin

Morning all grin

lubeybooby Sun 14-Apr-13 09:59:39

Kin of course you're not his girlfriend! Don't worry

You do get a say in whether that happens or not you know... being in a relationship is a mutual decision! chill!

I don't want anything putting you off getting an amazing shag having an enjoyable time with him.

ALittleStranger Sun 14-Apr-13 10:00:58

I started setting up an OK Cupid profile last night. I think I hate it, don't know how some of you seem to get on with it so well. Not keen on the format and as for the people it's suggesting! hmm

I think I'm going to stick with shelling out for GSM, even if it is slow. I've at least enjoyed spending time with most of the people I've met through it, and I think the wetness might just be a risk with OD.

Morning all.

I went out last night. I was in the pub and having a pint at 7. Only went for a couple of drinks. Ended up in town on sambucca and weird cocktails.

I came home with two plastic roses but no idea where they came from, I might have pulled but dont remember! grin

Pomegranatenoir Sun 14-Apr-13 10:33:00

Morning all,

Sorry for my utter self indulgence but had to share with all you lovelies! I went out last night and had the most amazing night. Had brilliant time with my friends and more male attention than I have ever had in my life. After feeling so flat recently I was just what I needed! I got asked for my number 3 times and spoke to loads of men!!! I havent done that since i was about 18!! I feel so much better about od now. Think I needed to get things into perspective. Had a big talk from my friend as well and she sorted me out. I think I am slowly developing some self confidence!! Weird how I can have it at work but put me in a social setting and I quiver!!

My dad is now making me a bacon sandwich and I don't feel hungover! Happy Sunday everyone!!!!!

Snapespeare Sun 14-Apr-13 10:35:30

Yay pom!

Snapespeare Sun 14-Apr-13 10:35:57

And sp sounds like you both had good nights! :-)
