Anyone watched it? Dd 7 has ASD, I found Alex really lovely, and really pleased his date with Eloise is going well.

marne2 Tue 06-Jan-15 20:45:49

I'm about to watch it as it was on the same time as broadchurch last night grin, the last couple of series have been really good, I have 2 dd's on the spectrum, would like to think there's someone out there for them when they are older ( if they want someone ).

Aeroflotgirl Tue 06-Jan-15 20:49:14

That guy is bringing out his measuring tape on a date shock, I think that would be a dealbreaker tbh

merlehaggard Tue 06-Jan-15 20:53:39

But he was not said to have any problems, other than a stammer did he? Or did I miss that bit? His 16" width across her shoulders requirement seemed a little unusual otherwise. I thought they were all really likeable though.

Aeroflotgirl Tue 06-Jan-15 20:55:43

No he just had the stammer, tgat woukd put me off tbh, but he was obviously nice in other ways as she really liked him.

I think Mathew is a bit fussy and expecting too much in a woman, he has high hopes, using a tape measure will get him nowhere.

marne2 Tue 06-Jan-15 21:12:21

Though he does have one thing going for him <wink wink >

Aeroflotgirl Tue 06-Jan-15 21:16:20

Oh god marne his schlong grin, his dare was a success though, tgey are a couple now, so she must have seen past his tape measure.

I thought Daniella was absolutely lovely and someone I'd def like to know as a friend. I hope she meets someone who makes her happy.

Alex was pretty cool too.

Aeroflotgirl Tue 06-Jan-15 21:21:55

Yes she was really lovely, and attractive, I am glad her date went well, they were all great. Mathew put your tape measure away!

velouria Tue 06-Jan-15 21:37:00

I did wonder at one point if the strict 16" across the shoulders thing was because he was measuring her for some kind of box or something grin. He seemed sweet though and loved the other two.

judydoes Tue 06-Jan-15 22:18:43

I actually want to measure my shoulders now.

WinterShivers Tue 06-Jan-15 22:25:11

So glad that there's a new series, I enjoyed the last one. Matthew was my favourite in last nights episode, I just can't believe he bought the tape measure with him on the date. Judyrose I actually had to measure mine after I watched it last night, Matthew would have been so disappointed if it was me he had taken on the date grin I love these type of programs it just shows that anyone can find love.

Aeroflotgirl Tue 06-Jan-15 22:38:28

I measured mine too, 15" oh drat grin

marne2 Wed 07-Jan-15 09:34:43

I wouldn't have measured up either ( too small ), I'm wondering if she has gotten the tape measure out on him? Though I'm guessing he knows all of his measurements grin.

Loved Alex, mainly because he is similar to my dd's ( in some ways, not all ), I'm glad his date went well, they seemed very well suited, I loved their senses of humour, my dd1 has a very odd sense of humour and she will need to meet someone similar that will understand it.

getdownshep Wed 07-Jan-15 13:24:40

Loved Alex, he reminded me of Guy Martinsmile

Aeroflotgirl Wed 07-Jan-15 15:07:38

Marne I wonder what his measurements are grin

butterflymacqueen Wed 07-Jan-15 20:51:44

marne2 I know. I was horrified. I would RUN if I saw that- like a donkey surely shock

Mrsjayy Wed 07-Jan-15 21:26:12

Oh I didn't see this the other day I really loved Alex and Eloise was willing them on.mathew and his man bits jeez was ginormous id run a mile from it. The undateables divide people but I really like it it is sensitive for a ch4 programme.

Southeastdweller Thu 08-Jan-15 08:00:20

I got the feeling there was no chemistry between Daniella and her date but now she's started dating I can't imagine she'll be single for long.

I was also thinking it was weird of Matthew bringing a tape measure on a date and wanting to measure you. But a lovely guy anyway.

Mrsjayy Thu 08-Jan-15 08:07:05

No there was nothing there but least Danniele has started dating lovely woman but she needs to not talking about her dogs outfits grin

Aeroflotgirl Thu 08-Jan-15 08:08:43

No, MrsJ, she might have been nervous though and not know what to say. The right person, will just feel right and you won't feel like that, it will just flow imho.

Mrsjayy Thu 08-Jan-15 08:18:16

Yeah it will she seemed to get on ok with the guy though.

Aeroflotgirl Thu 08-Jan-15 08:58:50

Yes I know, it must be nerve wracking if you have never dated before, or haven't dated in a while. Danielle is very attractive.

FreakinScaryCaaw Thu 08-Jan-15 16:36:53

Aww I loved Alex.

I work with adults with learning disabilities, mostly with autism. I think the show is sensitive although have never liked the title.
