Internet dating woes
"And at the beginning of this year that's exactly where I was at - fed up with being single and completely sick of dating.But now nine months later I've found the perfect channel for my single woes.So, while you could still spend all day finding matches, you can’t talk to them unless you set up a date and do it in person.2.Online dating provides an endless supply of new possibilities. You want to paint the town red and she'll want you to paint her living room beige. Woe betide you if you don't notice she's had her hair cut or that she's wearing new shoelaces.

WILLING TO TRAVEL Lives in a filthy flea-ridden hovel that he can't possibly let you see. NORMAL KIND OF GUY Normal in a Norman Bates kind of way. NEVER DONE THIS Have done this a thousand times before, but I'm too embarrassed to admit it, so will pretend that you're my first. Your date will be a riot of whoopee cushions, itching powder and fake-dogpoo-filled fun.
