    Including the term "five year old" in a lonely hearts thread may not be a good idea these days.

    They all say - 'it's for a friend'!

    I don't know of any singles events but there are plenty of dating sites. I'm an expert if your 'friend' needs any advice!!

    Did the 'private area' ever become a thing? I too am a regular on the dating sites but this forum is about social networking too.. right?

    No, and yes. As a result of member requests, we now have this "Meeting People in Stafford" section, but it isn't private or different from any other section, other than it has some more clearly defined rules.

    If expertise is gained by time served and failed dates.... I claim this title too! Give the dating sites their dues though, its not all bad. I've made some really good friends even where dates have failed. Apart from the one that turned up to Costa absolutely slaughtered in the middle of the day, covertly drinking vodka and coke from a pepsi bottle

    I would like someone to go the theatre with - but not interested in dating. I like my men fat and bald so no shortage of my type around but I'm too old to be thinking of having a man in my life - my aches and pains are my own i don't want to hear about anyone else's

    I've been on the dating sites and unfortunately had many a horror date but just got to keep plodding on in the hope of that lovely miracle!

    oooh yes but wouldn't it be weird if you were one of my horror stories!! Although I don't know if you are male or female, so unless you're a he that's highly unlikely!
