LurkingLorna, KirsyWirsty & MsApprehension - thanks for your offer to take a look! Have PM'd you a link.

No kitchen porn though, I'm afraid...

I'll have a look too Gin if you'd like.

Lovely evening with Alpha tonight, had a curry round at mine so dc were around but they just treated him like they would any of my friends, all very low key. It will be much easier if he can pop round to mine sometimes. Wonderful man, I think I'm getting quite involved here which is both brilliant and a little bit scary. One thing I know for sure - it's not just about sex grin so that's really reassuring and it makes me feel like there really might be something good here.

He is very sexy, cannot wait to get this man into bed. How we are managing not to I do not know, it would be so very easy and natural, but it's his decision to wait until he's got his results back, and there are, surprisingly, advantages to doing it this way.

Got a very dear old friend coming to stay tomorrow so plenty of booze and gossip this weekend.

Thanks Western - I'll PM you!

KinNora Fri 09-Aug-13 22:29:57

That all sounds fabulous OWW, it's particularly good to hear someone described as a 'wonderful man'.

lurkinglorna Fri 09-Aug-13 22:32:15

i've had a look i'll message you tomorrow gin is it ok if i get a bit "simon cowell"? grin

Overtheraenbow Fri 09-Aug-13 22:34:13

* Lorna* I usually ( well twice) just say "thank you but I don't think you are looking for the same things from a relationship as I am " then block!!

One guy opened with a lewd comment and " I bet you are god at **"
I did answer " Actually, I am very good at but sadly with an opening line. Like that you will never get to know HOW good!! " then blocked! grin

Can I be the Louis Walsh to your Simon Cowell if gin PMs it to me lorna?

Actually I am not sure what that would involve besides being a massive whiny twat grin

Winefiend Fri 09-Aug-13 22:35:30

halfway there grin

lurkinglorna Fri 09-Aug-13 22:35:42

Winefiend Fri 09-Aug-13 22:37:45

overtheraenbow thanks, it's just pissing me off (not in a big way, more in a small way) that he's "using a strategy" to hide the fact that he's married.

he has one profile pic, which he "hides" every few minutes, checked to make sure that i haven't lived in X city for a long time. fucking fancy sending a male mate to meet him angry

meh i suppose ignore is the best strategy.

Ginocchio Fri 09-Aug-13 22:39:12

Lorna I think I need it...

Winefiend you'll need to tell me that you "reelly reelly believe" in me... grin

PM winging it's way through the ether...

Ginocchio Fri 09-Aug-13 22:39:56

it's? it's?! its...

lurkinglorna Fri 09-Aug-13 22:40:38

ok. i'm just warning you, you might think i'm a dick but i just want you to get more dates smile i'll pm tomorrow.

Winefiend Fri 09-Aug-13 22:49:13

Actually gin, I think I'm with Bant on this one and it is pretty good - the only bit that I would maybe take out is the line about intent as some women may read it differently than others (ie some might think 'ohh I really want a relationship, I might be wasting my time here').

Ginocchio Fri 09-Aug-13 22:57:10

Wine fair point there - I've taken it out (although I still don't like the intent box...)

lurkinglorna Fri 09-Aug-13 22:58:15

this weekend i have 2 1st OD meets, "fairly" excited about them both

just coffee but i like the "vibe" of the men in the profiles, not really trying too hard, just ok guys who seem to be comfortable in themselves and have been spot on the ball with communication.

grinchie Fri 09-Aug-13 22:59:19

Me too please Gin if that's ok?

grinchie Fri 09-Aug-13 23:00:51

Ooooh lorna i'm fairly excited for you too!

lurkinglorna Fri 09-Aug-13 23:04:53

thanks grinchie smile only "fairly" excited, nothing's real till it is!

OhWesternWind Fri 09-Aug-13 23:09:08

Lorna that sounds good! When and what?

Gin it's just occurred to me that if you delete your old profile then have a relaunch with a new name then you'll come up in the new users section and might get more views that way. Also with PoF the more often you log in, the more visible you are.

Can I ask, have you been messaging people or mainly waiting for them to message you? The latter approach won't work. Set yourself a challenge like messaging at least two new people a day and see what happens ...

Nora he is, he's bloody lovely.
