This is a real quote from Benjamin Franklin (although I'm not quite sure he meant it for us ). Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and good luck in 2005, whoever you are celebrating with.
"With bounteous cheer, conclude the year.
Be always at war with your vices,
at peace with your neighbours,
and let each New Year find you a better man."

Merry Christmas all!

JMG1 - perhaps here is the perfect territory?!

jmg1 Wed 22-Dec-04 11:09:43

Well SS it can't be worse than a dating site, cause I can't even get a reply to my messages on there.

karenanne Wed 22-Dec-04 11:14:41

KA, I've been single for two years now (since DP died) and I can honestly say I would like to meet someone now. next year maybe!
Good thigs come to those who wait, as the Guinness people like to say.

wobblystarryknicks Wed 22-Dec-04 11:30:27

You've got one minute left to start your own thread jmg!!!

jmg1 Wed 22-Dec-04 11:32:11

wobbly, that sounds like bribary, what happened to your festive spirits?

wobblystarryknicks Wed 22-Dec-04 11:33:22

No, not bribery - just a teeny bit of blackmail!! And it's because I'm feeling so festive that i'm giving you a (festive) kick up the @rse!!!

SuzyStockings Wed 22-Dec-04 11:34:15

Try speeddateronline. I've used that (free trial) and got loads of interest. Also Londonmatchmaker (again freetrial) and again got loads of interest!

jmg1 Wed 22-Dec-04 11:34:37

jmg1 Wed 22-Dec-04 11:35:53

SS and CJP maybe I'll try them all and call myself desperate Dan!

SuzyStockings Wed 22-Dec-04 11:38:46

See, defo wouldn't get a response from me then! I never reply to people who come across abit too keen.

you have to start with a bit of humour and then crank up the flirting a bit.

You wouldn't believe some of the emails you get as a woman on those sites, from the hysterical to the weird to the down right disgusting! In fact thinking about it if I'd had half a brain I would have kept them and compiled one of those 'little books of...'

jmg1 Wed 22-Dec-04 11:40:49

SS, what sort of things do they say?

wobblystarryknicks Wed 22-Dec-04 11:41:40
