    Maybe not the Forum as a whole - but his comments represent, currently, almost exactly 6.5% of the thoughts of the Forum.

    Mr Marwood has (currently) penned 16,797 of the Forum's 258,608 comments.

    16,797 / 258,608 = 6.49515%

    @AlecB I suggest you just get out more , go out for drinks, meet new people , chat up some women . Help gain more confidence with women . Practice makes perfect.

    Me too. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but he is never really nasty with his postings. Comes across as a bit eccentric, But aren't we all in our own sweet way?

    Yes I find John a bit bizarre and whacky....but I think you have to be on the forum for a while to "get him".


    I just wanted to explain to Alec about John because as he very bravely came on to the forum with a pic and honest intentions, he may feel a bit bewildered.....

    However if he has been lurking for years then he probably knows what he is letting himself in for!
    :rolleyes:


    I am just editing this to say that I have "liked" lots of Johns posts, so I think he knows that my comments are gentle teasing.
    Not everyone "gets me" either!

    I feel sure that Mr Marwood would find being gently teased by you to be quite acceptable.

    We shall see.

    I am sure that John will have his own opinion on whether he wants to be gently teased or not.

    Book an appointment?

    Have you told him

    "don't look at what you can't afford"?

    I gathered that, but anyway I was only joking.
    I am far too old for John.
