How to destroy a relationship before it's even begun

I think I may have possibly set a new world record at being Completely Useless At Everything. Well, everything that involves men and dating etc.

I emailed Bloke-who-sort-of-asked-me-out back Before Xmas and have heard nothing. I seem to have managed to totally fuck that one up before we even managed to go out for a pint.

How the fuck did I manage that?

(no way am I, like, totally paranoid that he's found this blog and is staring at his screen in horror at what that sweet Irish girl is really like...)


  • Depends what you said...

    But yeah 2005 was fucking cack. Here's to 2006.

    I don't know if this helps but if you want a top tip for meeting fit blokes - join a climbing club - mostly men with lithe bodies and scraggly hair - sporty but the alternative adventurous type. Even if you don't pull at least you can offer to hold the rope for them as they climb up and get a great view of their tight buns.

    There is a great one in St.Werburghs Church, Mina Road.

  • if he doesn't get back to you its his problem, not yours. You don't want to go out with anyone so rude, right?

    hen has an interesting idea there. never thought of it before.

  • hen's right I think - if you want to meet men, hunt them out in their own habitat i.e. sport, be it climbing, footy, martial arts.

    My problem is that my desire to do sport I think is less than my desire to get laid and therefore I can't raise the energy

  • As we know, the industry-standard response time from guys is five days. But Christmas may play havoc with that schedule, particularly as the original mail was off-hand. I know I would wait a few days after getting back to work before knocking off that mail. All is not lost.

    Keep the faith.

  • Actually, I had a fantastic 2005, despite not getting laid very often.

    Intrigued that standard is 5 days. I've never had to wait that long in the past in the early days, but worth knowing.

    If I went to a climbing club it would only expose my own complete uselessness at all sports I'm afraid...

  • According to Swingers, two days is industry standard, and three days is, erm, "money".

    I'm not sure I've ever really been in the dating game myself, however, and therefore have no experience of such nuances of social etiquette. So feel free to ignore anything I say.
