ChaoticAngel Thu 26-Apr-12 21:32:58

Fuck the mother fucker!!!!!!!

Well on the upside, you found out early on. Twat, he clearly was not worthy of you anyways.

Hey, new thread, we filled the other one in less than a week!

Will this be the thread that sees watch and Sponge get a second date? Will it be the thread that sees Time get a job shag? Will this be a thread of dating success for all, not just lubey grin

TimeForMeAndDD Thu 26-Apr-12 21:40:10

Gary Barlow anyone? www.pof.com/viewprofile.aspx?profile_id=35891100

notsurewhyohwhy Thu 26-Apr-12 21:45:39

I havnt been online for a few days as I'm moving in a couple of weeks and I need to pack.

Just to update - I have a date with a new guy tomorrow night, he is new to the area and works for a chinese bank as a trader so I think I will call him mr trader. we get on well but i'm not sure if i will fancy him. but thought i would go anyway to see how it goes smile

also i am going on date number 2 with mr location grin i know i wasnt going to but there really isnt many nice guys around right now.

sponge - sorry to hear that he turned out to be another crappy guy sad hes crap and your not and you will find someone much better then him. Its just a shame that there are so many shit men out there...

ChaoticAngel Thu 26-Apr-12 21:47:51

You know, I must be getting old. My first thought was 'You got to university with that punctuation?' blush

I never had much time for TakeThat when they first started up, never gave Gary Barlow a first, much less second, thought. Since he's been on the x-factor I have even less time for him so this guy looking like him isn't a plus.

When life chucks spuds at you: jacket in.

watchoutforthatsnail Thu 26-Apr-12 21:51:43

I had a second date, its just it was crap!!!!!smile

Id like another second date and some sex if that's not too much to ask..smile

hatesponge Thu 26-Apr-12 21:55:31

I'll settle for feeling even a fraction less crap than I do now, and for hating my job and colleagues slightly less.

Anything else seems like too much to hope for.

lubeybooby Thu 26-Apr-12 21:56:07

Oooh new thread!

<placemarks>

watchoutforthatsnail Thu 26-Apr-12 21:56:10

And I'm now chatting to someone that has a boat.
Which is hysterical timing....
( just need to drop in that I'm a bit skilled with boats smile )

watchoutforthatsnail Thu 26-Apr-12 21:57:23

Sponge sad fuck them all. Fuck them. They are all shiesters.

Oh sorry American pie reunion anyone?

Why do I always text back straight away? And why the hell have I got some idiot keep asking for a picture of my feet not my boobs or my bum, he did ask but got a firm no. Every night he texts this. Drop it, you aren't going to get it.

lovesineffable Thu 26-Apr-12 22:49:01

that 'gary barlow' POF profile, well he's using a pic taken in 2009 shock ffs, thats just cheating, I'd never use a 3 year old pic.
Anything more than a year old is misrepresenting yourself!
and if thats a modelling assignment I dont think much of the lighting!

hatesponge Thu 26-Apr-12 23:02:21

I feel so pathetically sad.

For being taken for a mug. For not seeing his lies. Because he was a liar and a shit. Because work is so horrible, and because of all the other horrible crap that's going on (like the prospect of mediation with my Twat of an Ex next week)

I just want to crawl into a hole for a long time but even thats pointless because nothing would change.

lubeybooby Thu 26-Apr-12 23:03:19

Sponge, I'm so sorry you have all this crap at the moment sad , whats the fuck the motherfuckers song again?

notsurewhyohwhy Thu 26-Apr-12 23:09:04

sponge - I know how you feel sad i want to hide my head in the sand for a month or two so I dont have to deal with all the crap...

Tollysfolly Thu 26-Apr-12 23:20:26

has anyone that started on this thread from the beginning gained a proer ongoing relationship whilst since joining up ? I've not been on POF for a few days. I'm still hidden. will wait a week I think before relaunching lol.
my ds2 starts at a new football club sat and I've been reliably informed there are a lot of single dads taking their children to practise.... so i do have anterior motives for letting ds2 change clubs :D lol

lovesineffable Fri 27-Apr-12 00:01:04

i dunno tolly but a 'proper ongoing relationship' is the LAST thing i want
sheesh..take a puruse of the mn r'ships forum and thank my lucky stars i'm a single girlsmile
i'm happy with a decent shag now & again, preferably not getting to know the bloke too well so he cant spoil my nice memories by turning out to be a jerk!

Lovingfreedom Fri 27-Apr-12 00:12:43

Hi, I met a guy on OKCupid and I've been seeing him for a while now. I don't know if it counts as a 'proper relationship' but he first got in touch mid-Feb and we've been seeing each other quite a bit and emailing loads since then. He seems very keen and strangely enough, I quite like him. I'm surprising myself cos I started out telling him I wasn't interested and didn't want a relationship anyway. He's coming to cut my grass tomorrow (even though he hates gardening) and we've got a weekend away booked for a couple of weeks' time.

LittleHouseofCamelias Fri 27-Apr-12 00:59:45

Hi Tolly
I was on the first dating thread when I met up with a POF guy I had been emailing for a couple of months and never got round to meeting. Then another guy stood me up and he was let down too so we went for a drink to compare disaster stories.
Seven months later we are all loved up and spend about six nights a week together, kids seem ok with it and everything is lovely. He treats me well, my Dad likes him, and his mum and dad adore me. Very promising and all free with POF!
Keep the faith xxx

MsCellophane Fri 27-Apr-12 05:26:15

Lubey, your date sounds amazing

Sponge - what a creep! At least you found out early, I dated one like that for 6 months before I found out the lies. Try not to let it bother you too much

I just woke up to something that made me smile. Had a date few weeks back, not managed to fit in 2nd one yet. Not my type at all (not a pretty boy) but there is something about him. I have laid it on thick how much I dislike cock shots and sexting and he has been highly respectful of that so far.... apart from the text at 3am telling me he is at a work function, very drunk and wishing I was there. Have to say, it made me smile - won't tell him that of course

MirandaWest Fri 27-Apr-12 07:08:36

Hello smile

Sponge I too am v sorry about the Scot being so rubbish. I think some men must believe that women are stupid. Or more likely they are stupid.

My date may not quite have been up to lubey's amazing standards but was good grin. And there is definitely going to be a third date. Got back rather too late last night and getting up is proving quite tricky <inserts matchsticks with which to prop eyes open>.
