You Don`t Need A Passport……

A lot of men`s profiles say that they are “Young at heart! Not ready for pipe and slippers yet!” and I believe them.Because Mother Nature has played a cruel cruel trick on us all….as we get older, in our mind we are still young. Alright we don`t all think we`re 18 (actually I can only speak for myself here) but we do think we`re in our twenties, even though the mirror tells us different. It`s a bit of a difficult combination to get right and although we think we`re still up for new experiences and learning new things, our body lets us down.But, this doesn`t excuse a certain group of men who message you and as they seem ok it`s not long before meeting up gets mentioned and that`s when the fun starts.
“C” messaged me and seemed up for a laugh until I asked would he be ok meeting in Manchester. “Oh I don`t do Manchester! You can come and meet me in my local if you want,there`s a comedian on this Saturday and you`ll get to meet all my mates”. Hmm, not exactly the first date I had in mind so I asked him what the problem was. “Just never ever go into Manchester”.Whoa just a minute C, let`s just have another look at your profile as I`m sure it said…..yep,here it is….”Would seriously consider re-locating if the right woman came along” and we can`t even get you to Manchester (from Bury) so I decided to do a little bit of research. The bomb went off in 1996 so I think it`s safe to say that the bombing is not the reason you stay away.  I`ve phoned Border Control and no, you don`t need a passport and there are no border checks from Bury so I reckon that god forbid is it because Manchester is too vibrant? Too modern? Too young?? We wouldn`t have to go where all the fun is, a nice sophisticated bar would have done just fine. But I guess we`ll never know, But he`s not on his own in thinking Manchester is another country,a lot of these older guys just don’t want to go past the second lamp post on their street which sometimes makes actually meeting up a little bit harder to do…
