Dating update #597

Can I show you my bowls?

This is not  a euphamism. I fell in love with these at my local Waitrose. (Also with most of the houseware department) After a crappy first date much earlier in the year I decided to treat myself to one of the bowls with the promise that every time I had another crappy date I would acquire another. I had no more dates crappy or otherwise. I gave up. No more I decided. We've tried blind dates, dating work mates and dating sites. On line dating depresses me on a mahoosive scale. Here the rules of attraction just don't seem to apply. When you do find a profile that makes you pause you discover they live 200 miles away, they lack in witty banter or worse they are no bigger than you. (I am a self-confessed heightist)
I have not been on a date for some months now and as the evenings are drawing in I am sorely tempted to give it ago again, on line or otherwise.
It's that or join the W.I.Alternatively I can hang out a lot more in Waitrose and look for a possible soul mate over in the bread aisle. 
My Step mum bought me the remaining set of bowls as a parting gift. They dont give witty banter.


  1. Nice bowls - hope you find someone nice to share them with though. I joined the gym this year - there's an entire rugby club at mine - wasted on me as I'm already taken, shame you don't live here, they like saunas and swimming after their workout so there would be so much opportunity for you to bump into someone tall and handsome. Good luck with your search, Betty x

  2. I so know what you mean, finding someone to be with was probably the hardest thing I've ever done! But you have nice bowls to show people...
