Dear Jo,
I remember a forum where there would regularly be posts from teenagers and people in their early 20s where they would bemoan their relationships, how no one had ever been:
1. In love
2. Broken hearted
3. Lonely
4. Confused
5. Broke
6. Depressed
...like they were right now.
Then they would come on here (oops, sorry, I mean the forum) asking for help, but they didn't want help, just to talk about it, then repeat their mistakes.

Can you tell me what happened to that place?


Yours lovingly,

Hugh D Fox Hat (no relation)
I post, therefore I am

Definitely not enough drama these days. Didn't particularly like the couple of threads that actively involved me, though... I've taken to posting on Snowheads since they're easy to rile up without actually trolling to get through the working day now it's quietened down here

but they are all so liberal, easy going, self depracating and can give and take a joke over there.... and they view blading as a serious means of snow travel.

Dear Jo......

Internet dating..... modern means of meeting new and friendly people or desparately needy scary people who should be avoided at all costs.

I know i promised a review of my weekend antics with the ladies, but i didn't go out properly, so nothing much to report.

I did go out for a few drinks on Friday and saw this one girl, who is rediculously hot. She gave me her number a few weeks ago and i broke my phone, losing her number in the process. When i saw her on Friday, a bit more banter with her and i now have her number again. It's looking good so far after some texting on Sunday

Demand a paternity test if necessary. If you're the daddy face up to it ... but don't let yourself be conned.
I hate to advocate drugs, alcohol, violence, or insanity to anyone, but they've always worked for me.

I blame the Daily Mail. I got linked this article at work and got some funny looks for laughing at it... but really, only the DM could try and get away with this:

"The Metropolitan Police have told colleagues in the West Midlands to be on the lookout for the blade, which is designed to kill sharks and bears"

why would you even need a knife designed to kill sharks and bears if your brave enough to even go hunting for sharks and bears armed only with a knife.

You'll probably find out the kid's already pregnant and they're after you for child support and grandchild support.

And you a mere slip of a lad.
