We don't have get through these at speed....

The Rules

1. The first rule about the dating thread is you don't talk about it with people you're dating.
2. Develop a thick skin
3. Do no invest emotionally too soon
4. It's all BS until it actually happens
5. Trust your gut instinct
6. People vanishing, lying & being generally weird is not your fault
7. You are the prize - they should be trying to impress you
8. If it's not fun- stop
9. Loo update is mandatory
10. No dating the thread
11. Read Why Men Love Bitches.

Half even. There has been wine tonight. But Bee has gone to bed because he's working tomorrow, so wine and the thread has my full attention.

MyGastIsFlabbered Fri 08-Jan-16 23:03:03

Checking in, waiting for twiggy's date debriefing!

JollyXmasJumper Fri 08-Jan-16 23:04:18

Yay for the new thread, thanks tanya. Let the Bitch Boot Camp - the sequel begin!

tanyadm Fri 08-Jan-16 23:10:18

Can only assume Twiggy's date is MUCH better than last night.

MrsLannister Fri 08-Jan-16 23:28:47

Marking place for my ever looming first date next Sunday shock

MyGastIsFlabbered Fri 08-Jan-16 23:29:21

I'm jealous, although I've had quite a lot of fun tonight!

MississippiMud314 Fri 08-Jan-16 23:37:34

oh phew, thanks tanyadm

Looking forward to twiggy's update too.

MississippiMud314 Fri 08-Jan-16 23:38:46

Did you add a rule!? It's a good one.

JollyXmasJumper Fri 08-Jan-16 23:47:46

Rule 11 should be "read WMLB and if clinging on to anything cling on to those principles"
--Bitter experience with Popcorn

Well done tanyadm many thanks - so good to have a 'home' for the dating antics... Liking the new rule - excellent!!!!!

Actually been on POF tonight for the first time in ages. Sent a few messages and got a couple back...... May have a date on Tuesday with MrCity off Bumble who is now on Whatsapp and messaging in a very 'normal' way - we are speaking on the phone over the weekend first.

Got good vibes for Twiggy

Can't remember tanya is it Sunday for you? Who else has dates coming up? Am doing a terrible job at keeping up with everyone but I'm off work this weekend and this week to plan to do better.....

PrizeyPrize Fri 08-Jan-16 23:51:02

Yooooo hoooooo!!

PrizeyPrize Sat 09-Jan-16 00:00:16

Are we taking bets for Twiggys antics tonight

1) DTD (currently in post coital glow)
2) still trying to escape
3) got involved in deep convo regarding politics
4) escaped out of toilet window trying to find way home
5) ended up in a nightclub with Blonde
6) passed out on her bed fully clothed face down

tanyadm Sat 09-Jan-16 00:05:06

Yep, Sunday for me, after another day of Bee's general adorableness, and his worrying that I will find him disappointing.... Anyway, Sunday, 6.45pm, one of my fave bars. Quiet home day with my wee people tomorrow. Watched the BBC documentary on Loneliness tonight, with wine, as required by my boss for my job. Not the thing to do when you're in the dating process!

I think (or hope) that Twigs is 1)

MyGastIsFlabbered Sat 09-Jan-16 00:35:04

Another random, some guy in France just messaged me this 'loves women'...that's it!

Chattycatty Sat 09-Jan-16 00:49:11

Oh I've been lurking for days but I'm dying to know how twiggys date has gone. You've all been my secret hand holders in the Minefield of old and my god there are some rare men out there.

tanyadm Sat 09-Jan-16 00:58:39

Welcome to the fold, Chatty, I give it a few days before you're a REGULAR.

MyGastIsFlabbered Sat 09-Jan-16 01:05:16

And another charmer who's just been blocked 'shaven or hairy' was his entire message. I give up sometimes!

Twiggy789 Sat 09-Jan-16 03:34:39

prizey - slightly ashamed to say it is number 1 blush

Will update in the morning; I am soooo going to regret this.....

Yay Twiggy!
I don't know what is wrong with my profile but I definitely need to have a rethink!

HandyWoman Sat 09-Jan-16 07:37:08

Twiggy gringringrin

Option 1 from Prizey so much better than option 4

Such are the adventures of OLD.....

MyGastIsFlabbered Sat 09-Jan-16 07:39:22

I need a quick reality check, made tentative plans with MrCS for Friday, but given that he's gone silent for 4 days I'd be an absolute idiot to keep Friday free just in case wouldn't I?

TooSassy Sat 09-Jan-16 07:45:41

Marking my place. Thanks tanya for starting the new thread. And the additional rule!

Twiggy Huzzah! Great update!

prizey great guess at number 1!

waving well done for resisting soho

chatty welcome and get involved!

314 please just be careful with bear. I was actually ok regarding tree until we started the slow but consistent messaging over Christmas that actually got me a little emotionally attached.

gast I am lolling at your messages. Is there anything physically that stands out? I remember someone posting that they were <<ahem>> chesty. Was that you??
Re Friday? Don't know. I've pencilled in plans before and not been messaging until a few days before to confirm.

handy welcome back, where have you been??
