My Dickie bird doesn't have a mind of its own anymore and only stands to attention for certain types of pussycats these days

That's if I put my mind to it lol

I nearly used the same "Use it or lose it" phrase in your pubs thread...

What are you referring to here EU? :o :o :o

I've been single for 12 years & sometimes wonder if I've had my last leg over!

Cassis  Female  Cambridgeshire 25-Mar-2018 19:25 Message #4714081
I'm single Euro, and in no danger of losing "it" :)
I have had a boyfriend since November (not from here) and I was in a 3 year relationship with someone else until last August/September (again, not from here!), but I think of myself as "single" in that I'm not totally sharing my life with an other.
I joined this site for it's chat (there was quite a lot of that back then in 2012!) though was open to dating for the first couple of years.
Don't you think the general atmosphere on here is pessimistic and careworn where dating us concerned? There's no sense of positive dating vibes!
Perhaps too late now, but if only the site could be managed by someone giving it the kind of overhaul set to attract new and younger (as well as older) clientele, and it may give those left enough of a kick up the rear so that they start using it...and maybe then no one will lose it!!

Cassis  Female  Cambridgeshire 25-Mar-2018 19:57 Message #4714085
Maybe there's a little enterprise you could perhaps take on and revamp, Euro? :)
I think the Scouser's Guide to Using It (MSE, or anything else) could be a go-er! Well, I'd like to see it:):):) We might have John Lock dusting off his pulling shirt; Honest Bob hosting feminist meets; Tumbleweed being gracious to all lady members; and me n Vanners running MSE Speed-Dating in my local (before it closes!) amongst crazy partying and Polly Cupid's Postie being asked to take on the job full time!
My mind is boggling:)

"...more plans and parties await me this week..."
Ah, ain't it just so amongst all us hedonistic singletons on MSE :):):)
Minnie-the-Minx  Female  Hertfordshire 25-Mar-2018 21:29 Message #4714095
Might be a bit late for me. I lost it years ago. :D
tumbleweed  Male  Gloucestershire 26-Mar-2018 15:16 Message #4714127
Good gracious me. Mentioned in despatches by Cas. Honourable or dishonourable, no publicity is bad publicity and all that.

I have even had to change my status to wanting dating to reply, as it wouldn't let me do it otherwise. I must practice some chat up lines, otherwise I will be found out.

I remember the furore when the singles room was invented. What a palaver.

I usually think I am gracious, more gracious than Mr and Mrs Gracious and their daughter Gracious Gracious, when they received their gracious family of the year award, and anything else along those lines.

I do have a few run ins with people every now and again, who doesn't, but I am a little angel really. Comments taken on board though.

The use it or lose it thing. We used to have that at work with holidays. There was always some workaholic who never used up all theirs, and then lost them. Give them to me, i used to think, but sadly they weren't allowed.

Hahaha - I'd forgotten the ruffled feathers at the mooting of the outrageously radical notion of a Singles Room:):):) I guess there are just fewer and fewer knickers to get twisted these days!

I hadn't realised "going commando" was de rigueur these days. lol
Cassis  Female  Cambridgeshire 28-Mar-2018 01:58 Message #4714188
I think maybe a lot of MSE peeps don't realise how spicy the Singles Room has got, Mr.Online:)
Shshhh - keep it quiet, we don't want to get trampled in the stampede, do we? :):):):)
johnlock  Male  Essex 3-Apr-2018 18:55 Message #4714499

Cassis  Female  Cambridgeshire 5-Apr-2018 01:50 Message #4714604
There you go Euro and John: what more of an incentive could you need than that? ;)
eurostar  Female  Merseyside 5-Apr-2018 21:59 Message #4714679

Cassis  Female  Cambridgeshire 5-Apr-2018 22:10 Message #4714680
Shaved legs, fake tan, blonde hair-do! Omg, you'll have to move to Essex if you carry on like that, Euro!!
Hang-on... (thought bubble)...John Locke is in Essex isn't he?...
You read it here first, folks :):):)

AndyP  Male  Wiltshire 29-Apr-2018 19:20 Message #4716140
People here 12yrs? I only found this site a month or so ago, it might be quiet but it is genuine...not bombarded with fake profiles. It is a truly good site, not a cattle market like most...and free unbelievable! There are some really lovely ladies here...truly, a couple I would date in a heartbeat. Hmm but I won't say who...I'm a gentleman. Perhaps people are too shy on here...if you like someone really go for it :-)
