Would Like To Meet

One of the features on this dating site is “Would like to meet”.This means someone has indicated they would like to get to know you without actually sending you a message. Sheer laziness actually….and I always cringe when I get that email…”thejoker34 would like to meet you”. It`s nearly always a case of I look at their photo and think “Yeah I bet you would”. Half the time they look like they never leave their warden assisted flat…and more than once I`ve wondered did Norman Bates have any brothers? And they are always older men….always.Some look like they wouldn`t have looked out of place in Jurassic Park…(and I`m being kind here) and some look like they`ve been grown in a lab! I realise they might be shy…but I also think because they clearly have nothing else to do all day they message EVERYONE…..it`s a numbers game….someone will eventually reply.I have to think that because if that`s the best I can do…..I need to update my siren song……

Beaches

Is there a beach in the Greater Manchester area? Anywhere….at all? Am I missing some shingle going on outside Selfridges…..or a stretch of golden grains by the side of  the Manchester ship canal? The reason I ask is the amount of guys on “Plenty Of Frogs” who say that strolling along a sandy shore is something they would like to do on a date…and seeing as how we all live in Greater Manchester I was just wondering where this local beach actually is.A few have even mentioned it as an “interest” rather like a hobby which means that they must get to do this sometimes.(or are they just saying it to be romantic….) The only time we would ever get to walk hand in hand on a golden beach on a first date guys is…the Isle of Fernando`s!! And that ain`t going to happen is it?? But I`m spoiling the fun aren`t I….I`m supposed to be impressed and think what a lovely thing to say….don`t they realise us mermaids prefer rocks………
