They also ignore the fact that on one profile the one and only pic was of a car...complete with a flat tyre ! Haha ! Mind you, I did see one man very proudly clutching his fish !

And I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For...
Although the pedants may say that this relates more to the 'dating' side of things ?

awww, Just, please don't feel too upset
I posted on here a wee while back about my Italian friend, working in Dubai...took the huff when he asked for £1500 and I said ....no!
I have just shaken off a Dutchman, with an Irish name, and another name also....widowed, no kids, working in the gold/diamonds trading.......blah , blah .....block
And only this evening have been contacted by a poor man , new to the site, widowed, can we talk on whats app........NO!
Be careful ladies...and men

Oh! I found a new friend a couple of months back. Profile said he lived locally to me in Scotland... turned out he was 'Italian', working in Dubai ! Reeled me in with lots of lovely messages, perfect gent, no sleaze.... then asked me for money and threw a strop when I told him where to go !!

Forum Roll Call
Posted: 9/7/2018 12:36:47 PM
Hi, Lorraine from just outside Edinburgh here.
I used to be really active on here back in the day ...say about 14 years ago. There were some real characters and we had a lot of laughs.
I think things changed when the 'Forum' tab was removed, lot of folk don't even know they exist.
For some reason I am not allowed to start a thread so have to rely on others to do that.

What's your mantra?
Posted: 8/18/2018 1:40:40 PM
Well...I did try but sadly it didn't work too well.
This will be too short yet again, sometimes I just run out of words and this is one of those times I'm afraid.

1. Empty vessels make the most noise...
2. Stop, think, speak
3. Avoid loud and aggressive persons. They are a vexation to the soul
It seems a good time to resurrect this thread

The feel good thread
Posted: 8/18/2018 5:06:28 AM
Fore !! Golf makes me feel good. The wide open green space, the river that runs through, offering that extra challenge of fishing your ball out again, the sand...memories of building sand castles as a kid...and belting my ball as hard as I can . ...great stress release !

Thanks for starting off a new thread, Justanotherchap.
I agree, I don't miss the smell of cigarette smoke in pubs and restaurants and even offices ( way way back !)
The smell from vapes is sickly....and surely inhaling anything into your lungs can't be a good thing ??

Do you remember Johnnycumlately ? Such a lovely, funny guy, laughed and joked, write poetry, just a great guy. He sadly passed away, left a big void. There were some great characters !

All about the forum narcissist
Posted: 8/15/2018 3:12:49 PM
I am not going to get involved in the current arguments going on in here but the behaviour if one man and one woman has seriously affected this forum and made the rest of us very uncomfortable. Time to take it off here and deal with it privately.

Thanks Scareymush and also well said- no need to adjust your magnet Wrightbus!
I celebrated with a week in Madrid, a week on Rhodes and a week sailing round the Med on a MAHOOSIVE ship- perhaps I have your mum's wanderlust?
Next step is to get my driving licence back after spectacularly fracturing my skull in December 2016 and to replace my car which spectacularly failed its MOT in the interim.............................may just set off and see where I end up.

I am just back from a week in Madrid, had a week on Rhodes (Pefkos) in September and a Med. cruise in June
Cruise was ......well.....a good way to see lots of lovely places but wouldn't hurry to cruise again if I am honest
Rhodes is beautiful and Madrid...an amazing city
Sooooo..........think I will be cutting back this year, may have a late week somewhere but need to buy a new car

I am happy to admit that I reached 60 in November! I probably feel younger than I did at 40, to be honest.
I am told I look and act younger than my age..................but my problem is that I seem to attract MUCH younger men on here.
21, 30......come on now, get real!

Worst ever date
Posted: 5/7/2017 11:54:24 AM
Turned up steamin' drunk
Turned up with no front teeth
Told me on first meet that he would marry me...............wrong!
Turned up stinking of TCP as opposed to a nice aftershave
Turned up with toothpaste dribbled all down his front.................or I hope it was!
Talked about himself and his exes all evening......nearly dislocated my jaw trying to stifle a yawn.

Is it time to give up?

First date etiquette
Posted: 3/7/2017 9:31:46 AM
Don't turn up drunk
Remember to put your false teeth in
I am happy to buy you a drink but always good to remember your wallet
Don't propose marriage on a first 'meet'
Don't wait till the first 'meet' to announce that although you are 'separated' you still share a house with your 'ex'
I could go on.................................................sigh!

Theresa May's Leather Trousers
Posted: 12/11/2016 6:25:24 AM
To be honest, even when I was a young thing (not ALL that long ago :-)) I never thought that leather trousers would be all that comfortable to wear, in terms of heat.
It is a lot of cash to spend but I suppose it's her choice if she can afford it?
Not so sure about the shoes she was wearing with them though.......
