Hi Brian
I have signed up to help you get enough members to send out the invite.
I used to host regular POF events in London back in the day and wish you good luck.
Hope you have enough people now to send out the invitation.

Thanks for the mention mate!
I'm still around and have the odd peak at the forum now
again to see whats going on but don't have the time to post
any more due to work and other stuff going on.

I was just saying to one of my mates the other day that its now
an amazing 10 years since i hosted my first POF singles event in London.
The venue had over 500 people turned up and folk had to queue up outside to get in!
Hope everyone that remembers me is well.

Can I pay for our coffee?
Posted: 2/14/2015 5:54:36 PM
If i asked a woman out on a date I'd prefer to pay for the coffee the first time
unless she had said before hand in a message that she preferred to go Dutch.
Does this make me old fashioned? I just wouldnt feel comfortable if i didnt at least offer.
Its only a coffee! Its not as if there are cakes to pay for unless you both get hungry.

Why is Society so Mean to Singles?

Can't remember what Ed is going to give us


I think Red Ed said he was going to scrap the bedroom tax and freeze gas and electricity prices for the next 2 years.

It will be interesting to see what Cameron has to offer during the Tories conference in Manchester this week!

Katie Hopkins. Very modern or blinkered woman?
Posted: 7/17/2013 4:54:40 AM
Lets hope Lord Sugar has better luck tonight when he has to decide either to spend his cash on cakes or Botox.
As for Katie Hopkins if she is meant to represent todays modern woman there is something very wrong in our society in my view.

Corruption in the UK
Posted: 6/21/2013 10:36:40 AM

Is it about time we stopped mucking about and take to the streets ourselves.


No as these kind of protests always end up in riots and some people are still trying to recover from what happened 2 years ago.

Are Holidays important when money is tight?
Posted: 6/18/2013 10:20:31 AM
I don't think holidays abroad are important if money is tight as there are loads
of places you can visit in the UK however the downside is that our weather is so awful it will probably rain.
I like to do a mixture when away of sun bathing,visiting historical sites and chatting up big boobed women but in no particular order.

Personally I don't really care about if politicians are sleeping around or not.

If you are really remorseful for murder, do you deserve some compassion?
Posted: 5/11/2013 3:16:23 AM
It sounds to me from reading his letter that all he wants is for his dad to send him some money so he can buy some fags.

I don't know all the details from this case but I could never show any compassion to the likes of Mick Philpott or the April Jones murderer however much remorse they showed.

In the church they say you must forgive those who confess their sins so they can go to heaven but surely there are some crimes where hell should be the only destination.

ITV news question time with David Cameron
Posted: 4/11/2013 7:29:10 AM
I would ask Mr Cameron if he will stick to his promise of a referendum
on if we should remain in the EU or not if he is still in power after the next general election?.

Also would his government continue their welfare reforms to stop the likes of Mick Philpot claiming benefits for 17 kids?

And finally can he promise that if the Scots decide to break away from the UK we in England won't continue to pay for all the free stuff they get?

I could go on but will leave it there!

Am I using this site properly?
Posted: 4/10/2013 3:50:23 PM
I don't take any notice of the meet me function and consider it to be a pointless and meaningless feature.
As Lusipher has said above there is no right or wrong way to use the site and we all like to do things differently on here.

I won't bother to write first contact msgs any longer but if I received an email I would always reply back just as an example.
Do stick around to use the forum as its one of the best things about this place and another way to meet people and make new friends.

Take bare boobs out of the Sun
Posted: 4/9/2013 7:35:46 AM

It doesn't bother me but I bet Hams will object ;)

I object!
I think there are far more important things going on in the world than to worry about the sun showing boobs on Page 3.
Nobody forces these girls to pose topless in the paper and many of them go on to earn a lot of money doing other things.

Posted: 4/8/2013 9:12:46 AM
I'm really sorry to read about what happened OP:-0(
I think not to show up when a date had been arranged and confirmed is totally out of order.
This has never happened to me on here but then again I haven't been on that many dates.

Don't let this setback put you off from trying again and just put it down to one of those things that happens sometimes.

Welcome to the forum Kursttie:-0)
We often have plenty of good conversation on here so stick around and just join in when a topic takes your fancy.
I have given up writing msgs to women on the dating side as it doesn't matter if you just say hi or write a long and funny email they never get replied back to what ever.
It didn't seem to be as bad as this on here a couple of years ago but a lot has changed due to the rise in popularity of social networking sites i feel.
Edit - I see that this was an old thread from last year but i still believe the post i wrote to be true.

Mick and Mairead Philpott
Posted: 4/4/2013 10:07:10 AM
Its actually very rare for senior politicians like Osbourne to make personal comments on these kind of criminal cases but I agree
with him that it is very wrong that the welfare state funded shameless Mick's lifestyle and something needs to be done to stop the
system being abused so that people think they have the right to have as many kids as they want without ever doing a hard days work.

I think its disgusting that he only got 15 years for murdering 6 innocent children and don't believe that the punishment fits the crime.

This was not manslaughter and there is something very wrong with our justice system in my view.

Their whole lifestyle, funded by the taxpayer, is bizarre to say the least.


This is one of the reasons why the welfare state needs reforming but people who genuinely need help like those
who are disabled are being victimised by the government but if you want to have 17 kids
you can carry on claiming and getting your leg over at the tax payers expense. This is just complete madness!!

Do we/you discuss dating too much..?
Posted: 4/2/2013 6:16:50 PM

(Though I was shocked and surprised, to see that you'd never started one on "breasts"... perhaps now's your chance..?)


I did consider starting a topic about that young lady who had a boob job
done recently for free on the NHS but I was very busty at the time.

There are some subjects like immigration that should never be discussed here as they always turn into flame wars.

I would like to see a few more light hearted discussions in the future to attract some more new members to the forum.

Fecking hypocrites

I agree with you brother.
I really don't think most politicians have a bloody clue about just how tough things are for a lot of ordinary people right now.
While they sit in their tax payer subsidized bars in Westminster dreaming about how they
are going to fiddle their expenses and spend their above inflation pay rises while the rest of us are having trouble sleeping at night time.

Some of us can't even afford to put the bloody heating on and have to go cold in the middle of one of worst ever winters in living memory or chose not to eat anything.

Could you live on just £53 per week?

"If I had to I would,"

According to Department of Work and Pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith speaking on Radio 4.

In the wake of the comment, more than 100,000 people signed a petition on the change.org website,
calling for the minister to try surviving on that money for a year.

I wouldn't be able to survive what with our energy and basic food prices going up to their highest ever levels.

Isn't that what we had when Labour was in power between 1997 and 2010?
They have now admitted they had an open back door policy and wanted as many immigrants to come here as possible.
The only thing is though is that they never asked us if that is what we wanted and that was very wrong.

No!
I would never msg somebody to give them a profile review as I think its rude and
none of our business what other members have written even if they have some massive mistakes on them.
Let them sort it out in their own time or they can come on here and post a topic so we can reply here.

i also hit a bit of a dip with the messages so i sent out a mass boob shot..

Damn! I must have been outside the 10k radius limit to get this mass email!

OP - There does seem to still be a major issue with hidden/Unhidden profiles on POF at the mo
which could well be why you aren't getting many msgs right now and the admin are well aware of this problem
There are quiet a few topics about this in the help section where you could find out more whats going on.
You could always delete your profile and then create a new one to get around this and make sure not to hide your profile again as it cant be changed back.
