God this forum has been boring as of late. Therefore, in an effort to spice it up a bit: I've been hearing a lot about these 'dating sites' recently. Not to the level of actually bothering to find out anything about them, of course. Two people I know have been using them A bird and a bloke. The bird has been sucessfull and is now seeing some fella who she quotes as being "not too weird". The bloke keeps talking to birds in the far corners of the country and has only managed to shag one so far. The bit that confuses me is the whole dating/shagging part. I assumed the whole point of these sites was to just bump uglies, but it appears there is a whole network of people who like to do the 'dating' thing first. Surely if you're desperate enough to need to use the internet for sex, then you may as well stop beating around the bush and just get down to it? Plus there's the obvious issues of meeting freaks that keep frozen hamster heads, or some shit in their glove compartment. So come on then, own up. Who's a member of a dating site, is it a dating/shag type one and does it work. Anyone fancy a shag (I promise not to show you my hamster heads)? P.S. Don't give Scaryspice any reason to edit/delete/hole the thread. It gets the moody old cow horny and then I have to suffer her constant PMs.
