Have faith Caroline in amongst the dross who seem to inhabit the Internet Dating scene there must be a few gems! Perhaps they’re just bad at revealing themselves! Maybe their honesty makes you pass them by.
Today’s new messages have been the usual stunning examples of internet dating dross – bearing in mind I’ve stated my age and the age range of people I could be interested in (50 – 66) and they must be within UK:
“Hi, my name is David, I’m 44. Do you wear stockings?”
“Hi I’m Chris. I’m looking for anything between 19 and 90”
“Hi, I’m 29 – you look as if you could be up for it”
“Do you believe in passionate love”
“Hi – I’ve said I live in the UK but actually I don’t I’m from the USA”
“What are you like in bed?” (to which I have a burning desire to reply – “I’ve no idea I’m usually asleep – being as I’m on my own!”)
And never mind the requests to do things I categorically won’t!!!
They use the most ludicrous screen names too: LuckyLips, LoveHungry, PoshBilly (well I suppose that one could have been worse he could’ve changed the B for a W!!)….. and more! These from men in their late 50s and early 60s.
I tell you something, dear reader, it’s dire!!
I’m doing my best to find the humour in all this – I do laugh! I am doing my best to give it my best shot. Not to be deterred!
but really all I want to shout into the ether is:
H E L P!!!!!
