I'm a single person, never tried Internet dating and never will.

Yup, it gets a bit lonely sometimes... but I'd rather leave it to the hands of Fate.

A Bad idea... maybe. But totally out of the blue, a close female friend got in touch with me on Christmas Eve, someone I always had a bit of a thing for but she couldn't get anything going (bad relationship stuff on her part, I won't bore you with the details)....

We've had a couple of non-expectant 'dates' (ie, nothing naughty happening )and things are looking pretty damn sweet.

Trawling through the muck of the fuck-awful dating scene will rarely dredge up anything decent. I'm optimistic thanks to the circle of people that I know. Wish me luck, guys...

The lecturer I'm supposed to be filming an interview, who keeps cancelling on me, still hasn't shown up for her 10:30 appointment. I've lost the filming slot now!

Sorry for my gender Harley.

Don't apologise lovely unless you're one of the weirdo's that's sent me those messages. It's just so disheartening. I've graduated to wassaping two people that I like and our conversation has been interesting but even one them has requested arse and boob pics. I get that physical attraction is important but surely having something in common with someone and being able to converse with someone is as important as how someone fill's out a pair of jeans.

I'm being naive aren't I?

I totally agree about finding the diamond among the coals.

For five months after Easter the wonderful local council in Norwich has decided it is a good idea to close one of the only roads left which allows people to drive from one side of the city to the other in order to prepare a 1.5m cycleway (existing cycleways and paths are not used with people riding on the road next to them rather than using them). This is going to push thousands of commuters onto two other routes which are already congested due to changes they made a few months ago which has caused a complete mess to the road system to one side of the city. For me it is going to mean a two mile diversion and probably an additional 40 minutes to my commute home of lucky. The start time of the roadworks also overlaps the end time of other roadworks which is closing one of the other routes. If there were alternatives to driving (buses, park and rides etc) it would be fine but the park and rides are near capacity and the cost of using it has increased massively and buses will not be able to get down the road either so will be in the jams with everyone else.

You're not being nave - someone requesting that kind of pic at that stage is a creep and playing you. I'd block immediately at that point - all they want is a boasting tool for their equally creep friends.

I pity the teenagers who get teenagers behaving like this - unlike you, they might fall for that crap.

But don't you know that car drivers are the evil in the world and who gives a damn about them when there is a great glorious sanctimony that is bike riding which will bring new enlightenment to the world....

Sorry - but some tits about this really really get up my nose. There's no thought to sharing roads, it's always one side that needs to be inconvenienced because we don't have the right infrastructure.

The thing is there is already a cycle route for buses and cycles which leads to exactly the same place with less distance and it is predicted by local business leaders that this is going to cost over 2m to the local economy. I wouldn't object if it was a month or so but 5 months is a ridiculous amount of time and there are fears that this will be a two phase thing with another 5 months for the second phase which will cause as much disruption.

Sorry - thought my post was more obviously sarcastic. The 'sanctimony' bit was the giveaway? Sick to the back teeth of car drivers being the loser because of trying to respond to the few bike riders who claim to speak for everyone and claim everyone would cycle if there were safe routes (based on very flimsy evidence). The worst of them have no thought to sharing - they ignore the facts that cars manipulate to give bikes and other cars space because driving has to be for the most part done by people who are considerate - too many cyclists aren't.

I'd add I have less respect for some of them than I did a few weeks ago too - barely in London a couple of hours and some tit wove through cars stopped at a red light and nearly knocked me down while I crossed at green - then swore at me as if it was my fault.

That is the thing. They have already spent 800,000 on a cycle path just outside the city and the cyclists all ride down the road leaving the cycle path empty. I think The Greens who run the council may have picked the wrong time to announce this and are likely to be losing quite a few votes in the upcoming election . I think there is a place for both vehicles but to do this is a ridiculous action which appear to be ideologically based rather than based on sensible data. They already have approved a new supermarket which according to code should have twenty parking spaces but they have not approved the parking so instead the supermarket is going to have a bike rack outside because everyone goes to the supermarket on a bike...

my personal issue with cyclists is when they are riding at high speed on the fucking pavement and seem to think that YOU'RE in the fucking way when they pedal past...

Get on the road, where you belong, you ignorant cunts. You could hurt someone.

As the fiancee of someone who cycles to work, I'd much rather he inconveniences a person on foot than a half ton piece of metal which could slice through him in a second.

Fine, until you cycle at high speed and then meet a small child or an elderly person, both with easily-breakable bones...
