Posted:I haven't got pictures up yet... just wanna wait until i get the valuation report and know it's going through.

My blood is about 60% coritsol at the moment! I'm so excited but anxious about it. I really love the house, it's in a studenty area of Preston, Lovely old victorian place... needs modernising etc, but I just love it. It has load of original features, coving, roll top bath, and outside WC (there's an inside one too). Man, you should see some of it though, funky carpets, and groovy art deco fireplace!

I haven't bought any boots for a while... if the house falls through then I'll definately follow in your footsteps Birgit!

I'm self certifying the mortgage because I didn't want to use the world student in my application. I am hereby a self employed researcher. Not a lie, a mere re-labelling of the truth... I haven't tried to kiss them yet.... do you want to try them for me 87wt2gxq7?

And thanks for the additional hugs! hug here's one for you

Nah, I just got a bit excited. I'm thinking of going back to uni in a couple of years and I've just learned about capital gains tax (sell your house and if you don't use the to buy a new one, Uncle Government gets 40% of the profit, the cheeky buggers!) so I don't really feel inclined to go back to renting.
Hence, if someone offered me a student mortgage I would put out BIG TIME.

Frankly my dear you can have an orgy in here i wouldn't give a damn! tongue

To be honest I've spent so much of my life being single I actually prefer it as I have no idea what to do in a proper relationship! I don't feel sorry for myself so i don't except anyone to either. I just realise I'm not the relationship kind!

I've not met anyone whom I've thought 'wow' who likes me and anyone that does like me DOESN'T make me go 'wow'. It's a b*tch. I'll live, believe me I will LIVE! biggrin

I think I want to establish a friendship with someone first as every guy I've been out with I always jump into it when we first meet. It'd be nice to build a foundation first before deciding you want to take it to the next level.

ah, except the guy thing i think this is the main problem with meeting people in pubs and clubs. i'd rather actually know if i like someone before make some kind of a commitment.

You talking about how meeting guys in clubs generally don't lead to 'friendships first, relationships later'?.

It looks like you're agreeing with me in the second part but I dunno! confused

Yeah, I'm about the same. The longest I've ever been with someone is 6 months and for most of that I was desperately trying to convince myself that this is what a relationship is like after the novelty wears off and it wasn't that I didn't want to be with her after all.

hard to please, fickle, right place at the wrong time (my personal speciality), all amounts to the same thing in the end!! ubblol

Wow... snap! Thats just like me!! ubblol

My last relationship lasted six months, my longest ever...but only because the last two months I stuck at it just to reach the six month mark... no other reason ubblol

I fall hard, and put my all into a relationship for the first..ummm...few months...and then completely lose interest in the other person as a human being...it's a bit weird, because that never happens with friends... *scratches head looking puzzled*

Not for nothing does it say in the Commandments Thou shalt not make unto thee any image ... Every image is a sin.... When you love someone you leave every possibility open to them, and in spite of all the memories of the past you are ready to be surprised, again and again surprised, at how different they are, how various, not a finished image.



So once we think we know a person (or once they stop surprising us, for whatever reason), that's usually it. True enough for me.

Posted:(ickleMatt continues to use this thread to air thoughts that bounce around his brain needing expressing)

The other night I think I worked out why I seem to meet loads of likely women but never seem to be able to go far with taking it any further. I was always a very shy person and with age I have grown very confident in many ways (much thanks to travelling and juggling), but dealing with women is one area where I have never had a whole load of experience; so with that respect I'm still very shy and naive. Therefore women see me as a very confident person but when I don't display that confidence in chatting them up and expressing my interest (ie I f' it up) they think either I'm not interested or I'm an idiot.

Time for my favourite rhetorical question: What to do?

Easier said than done obviously, but just try your hand with unlikely people and with no expectations, and gauge what works and what doesn't.

Unfortunately, attraction isn't a choice, nor is it logical. Best of luck dude! hug
