“Go and drink your saucer of milk”……

What feels like a bit of a car crash week on POF hasn`t ended as badly as it could have as I`ve made a new friend…..the lovely “C”.Hopefully a few of you have been watching the Channel 4 dating show (which I applied for) “First Dates”. C was due to appear in the last episode this week and unfortunately at the last minute there was a bit of a problem with the guy they had matched her with, in that he was a reporter/journalist and no-one could be found as a replacement at the last minute so we`ll just have to wait and see if she appears on the next series. But let me just say C is a very glamorous 50 something lady with (her words) porn star boobs so you can imagine the type of messages she gets! She did say that she`s actually had a guy turn up for a date in trainers and bicycle clips but she didn`t hang around to get to know him and one guy who was taking her out for a meal had vouchers…..now that doesn`t surprise me.
For the first time ever on this site I was actually blocked by some-one this week.”M” had been messaging for the past couple of weeks and I wasn`t quick to answer as it soon became clear he didn`t have a lot to say. He `s a widower which didn`t help as I`m a bit reluctant to date widowers (future blog post) he`d been married 33 years and thought he was ready to find someone else. Reading between the lines I don`t think he knew what he wanted as he had no friends due to the fact he and his late wife had done everything together…..I know,not good……so this particular fish was feeling out of his depth I think but it still doesn`t excuse what actually happened……
I hadn`t replied to a couple of his last messages hoping he might just disappear but no, he sent another one.”Getting fed up with people on here.A couple of ladies I`ve been chatting with sound really old, like they`re just waiting to meet someone to actually do things with. They don`t do anything!” Now this surprised me as this is exactly what M himself was doing…..so I replied. “Well what interests do you have?”  “Nothing really, just hoping to find someone to do things with”. For god`s sake. “So maybe these ladies are in the same frame of mind as you then?” Oh he didn`t like that. “I`m not old! What are you saying? Anyway maybe we could meet up for a coffee?It`s ok if not”. It was time to tell him. “To be honest I don`t think I`d be right for you, I don`t think you know what you want.” This obviously didn`t go down well as he replied “You could have f*****g told me this last week instead of wasting my time!” Oh……..”You never asked me last week and we were just getting to know each other but it would seem I was right to refuse”  He was fuming. “Who do you think you are?”   Enough`s enough. “It`s hardly my fault that you are so boring” I said. I think he nearly broke his fingers trying to type quick enough with his reply.”Says she who`s been too busy working for the past 2 weeks to meet up” “I`ve had time….just not for you”. I didn`t have to wait long for the next message “Go and drink your saucer of milk”, I chose not to reply so he sent another message so this time I replied. “The fact that you`ve got no friends says it all to me” “What? I have 2 cousins who I see every week and we go for a walk round Bury market then go for something to eat so you don`t know what you`re talking about!!” I couldn`t resist “So your relatives are your best mates. can you hear that sound? It`s duelling banjo`s…I rest my case” After sending me one last nasty message I found that I was blocked. Just as well, really I was gearing up for all out war but clearly I`d had a lucky escape. A day out round Bury market…..I wouldn`t have been able to contain my excitement……
