I need to get laid

That's it really.

I separated six months ago (after several sexless years). I was a faithful wife.

I don't want another relationship, I don't want to shag anyone else's man (either deliberately or inadvertently), I don't want to end up with genital herpes of anything similar.

I want a NS relationship that's mostly about sex (God I sound desperate grin).

I'm fussy about men, don't like bald or shaved heads, beards, paunches or poor hygiene.

I'm 42 and reasonably attractive.

How do I make this happen? Most men are gagging for it, aren't they? It can't be that difficult but I don't know where to start...

Has anyone been in this situation or can give me any advice?

a nice long bath will sort you out but ok thats fair i will take them blame smile

Loulybelle Sat 27-Apr-13 19:05:20

It always does Spence, and your sweet to take the blame for my laziness. smile

spenceuk Sat 27-Apr-13 19:11:22

ha its no problem, some of us men have to be sweet but thats prob why i ended up in this thread in the first place

Loulybelle Sat 27-Apr-13 19:16:42

I know, some women spot sweetness for muggness, i see sweetness as a sign of being a decent respectful guy.

spenceuk Sat 27-Apr-13 19:19:11

ive definitely always been with the women who view it as muggnes

Loulybelle Sat 27-Apr-13 19:20:30

Thats a shame too Spence, you seem like a decent guy, but some stupid women like bad boys, like my idiot friend.

fastdriver Sat 27-Apr-13 19:21:38

I don't think 'own teeth and hair' is that much of a recommendation. It only makes me think that the guy is of an age where he might wear a wig and have dentures.

spenceuk Sat 27-Apr-13 19:22:13

thats nice of you to say so, but yeah some women definitley prefer that

Loulybelle Sat 27-Apr-13 19:23:57

I've encounted my fair share of bad boys, i certainly wouldnt wanna saddle myself with one.

spenceuk Sat 27-Apr-13 19:25:03

at least experiencing the bad points means you get chance to learn from them

Loulybelle Sat 27-Apr-13 19:26:46

Yep Spence, i know exactly what i want from a potential partner.

spenceuk Sat 27-Apr-13 19:29:16

always good to know what you want in a guy.

like i said a couple of pages back i just wanna meet someone nice for friendship with the potential to develop into something serious

Loulybelle Sat 27-Apr-13 19:33:02

and i think thats the best way to develop a serious relationship, it was a whirlwind with my ex, and it went tits up after 3 years, its better to make the connections without the pressures of a relationship.

spenceuk Sat 27-Apr-13 19:36:23

yeah i know what you mean

i was with my ex for years and i thought everything was great until you got involved with her boss. It really knocked my confidence so its only until recently that i felt like i could start to meet someone new

Loulybelle Sat 27-Apr-13 19:40:32

Well you sound like a nice guy, so i hope you encounter only nice women who appreciate you.

spenceuk Sat 27-Apr-13 19:43:10

thanks thats very nice of you smile i hope we both meet someone nice

fastdriver Sun 28-Apr-13 02:00:52

Thanks for hijacking to have a one on one conversation.

Loulybelle Sun 28-Apr-13 08:40:24

Sorry sad

Fastdriver

Don't be nasty or envy, just look on it as tips on how to speak to a guy.

Loulybelle Sun 28-Apr-13 09:06:03

I feel really bad now sad

ItsYoniYappy Sun 28-Apr-13 09:31:51

Don't feel bad, I'm chatting on it too I thought OP had left tbh I think everyone had gave their advice.

I wouldn't worry.

Hope you got your essay done.

fastdriver Tue 30-Apr-13 01:19:44

Don't feel bad Louly. I kind of wrote that with a smile on my face and should have put a winky emoticon at the end of it.

ItsYoni I don't really think I need tips on how to talk to guys. It would be nice to meet some interesting ones in the first place though. I was fairly successful with men in my youth. What's come as a horrible realisation though, is this: when I was young I had hot boyfriends who were the same age as me and it was fine because we were all young, including me. Now the attractive men my age (the type I went for when I was younger) have women ten years younger than I am who would be happy to be with them. So I have to look at older men, or less attractive men my own age, if that makes sense. Mostly (with a few exceptions like Yasmin Le Bon) an attractive woman in her thirties will look better than an attractive woman in her forties. I am struggling with this, my toxic mum brought me up to think that a woman's main currency was her looks (thanks for that). So my self esteem is getting very shaky as I age.

I have a single friend who is 40 with no kids and she seems to meet some very attractive men the same age on sites like match.com. All childless. But I've got kids and if I look on sites like mumsmeetdads or whatever, the guys are, well, pretty unattractive. They all look really old and worn out. Maybe it's just what happens when you've got kids and have been through the stress of a big break up. I kind of feel like I'd rather be celibate than shag some hairy handed, sweaty, red faced middle aged man, and that's what seems to be on the market.

There's a married guy who's interested and he's a surgeon . It's flattering but I'd never act on it. Why can't I meet someone like that who is unattached?

It's been good hearing from other people in a similar situation. There doesn't seem to be much to do apart from go on dating sites, negotiate the shark-infested waters, weed out the married men and tossers etc.

Maybe I'm too soon post separation but that really doesn't appeal, so I guess I will have to just accept the situation unless I PM back the poster who suggested a hook up, but I really don't fancy that

fastdriver Tue 30-Apr-13 01:22:26

The married surgeon is gorgeous, btw. Maybe that's the problem, all the good ones are married...

I wouldn't ever be an OW though.

I will end up with cocoa at bedtime and a house full of cats.

boyfromipinema Tue 30-Apr-13 07:17:31

Maybe you're looking in all the wrong places ?

ItsYoniYappy Tue 30-Apr-13 08:45:24

Fast driver I could have wrote your post, everything you said applies tome (expect the surgeon)!

Why do all the men look so old? grin I have been dating men 10 years younger. I had a date at Xmas with an ex. He was my ex from when I was 19, so he was 17 back then, now he is 37 and his hair is all grey and his bones creak.

mine do too but I can hide it well

I think Mr Right is somewhere where you least expect it (hopefully), I still think the supermarket is good, although most men there are married.

Do you have a type at all? I do. I don't like office workers (that's my job) I like the building trade men but cleaned up ones - I also like my old GP but then he is married. He is the only man in a suit I have found attractive.

I met a very lovely man in the last year of my marriage. Sadly, I was married and he went off with a single person. grin
