Where are all the decent men?!
Topic posted by Katie ... dated:16 August 2006
A group of friends and I often drink in Urmston and are becoming depressed at the lack of decent available men.

We seem to get constantly approached by shaven headed thugs and men who can barely string two words together!

What we girls really want are decent, intelligent men who can hold a conversation (and model looks wouldn't go amiss either!). Ideally, sophisticated, professional 30 somethings with good fashion sense and able to be romantic (poetry does it for me everytime!)

So come on Urmston! Where are all the decent men?!

Well things have progressed and only a little over a week to the big day. 

Who would of ever thought this day would come. Seek and ye shall find.

Looks like the right coffee has been found!!!

That’s me too. I’d rather go out with a gentlemen that treats you with respect which is quite a hard thing to come by these days. There will be some well mannered males out there who don’t act like thugs or what have you. 

Never lose hope!

Dogsbody. 

Don't be too dispondant about not finding a partner at the moment because of age. I'm 64 so not too far behind you. 

There are people out there, but seek and you shall find is the answer. Good luck

is the Gallery still not taking photo downloads????

[Yep, it's working fine. My hosting company had an outage yesterday and e-mailed me to apologise but apart from that, all is good - Dave]

Wonderful news for you Evad and all best wishes for you both. As to the other historical posters on here, it is not only the 20's and 30;s who can't find a soulmate.  It happens for us older people too. I am in my 70th year and would also like to meet that special someone but it's as good as impossible as there's not much going on in this area where you are likely to meet someone socially.

** Breaking News**


Well the last post on here is dated 2011. To ease those who are "maybe" still waiting for any result under this particular topic, I have good news.


So. Following on the Nescaffe coffee saga from many moons ago. 

After being engaged now for nearly 12 years, Karen and I are getting married this September. 

We bought a lovely cottage in the Yorkshire Dales, 12 months on the 6Th April and which is our home.

Bringing 3 kids up between us has had it's challenges, but we made it in the end.

For me. I cannot thank Karens sister enough, as she passed away not so long ago, but I am eternally greatful for my rather if not curious way of an introduction. 

I can say to those who "think" that there's no prosect of a partner, for whatever reason. Think again and never give up. You never know who else is looking too. Seek and you shall find.

I married one 23 years ago - I'm so lucky.   He has a heart of gold.       
A friend of mine is experiencing the same problem though - can't find anyone decent.

Yay Steve - good on ya!!! Its lovely when stories like that come on here. My Dad died last year as did my Uncles partner a few weeks earlier. My Mum and now Uncle (cousins) are now keeping each other company and going out for meals and days out. I think its wonderful that they are helping each other thru what has been a horrible time for both of them. He truly is one of Urmstons decent men!

Gillykins, I'm in my mid-fifties, met a nice divorced lady in Southport, so we are giving it a go. Urmston's loss

I know.  SteveJ, come on - I have so many lovely single friends too, all looking for that special someone, ha ha
 
As for me - was chatted up by a married friend last night - told him what I thought of him for doing that and have decided to remain happy and single for the foreseeable future!

I doubt it Jilll, a cousin of mine tried a singles club but it never got off the ground for more that a couple of meetings, Urmston folk are shy at this dating stuff, especially if they are of a slightly older group.

How about speed dating in Urmston, you think people will do it?

What age are you SteveJ and what age lady are you looking for? I know single friends of pretty much all ages. Who knows?? could be Urmston.net romance No2 on the cards!

Well, I've just joined an online dating site. I don't consider that I'm bad looking for my age, and I have been inundated with requests, and I mean dozens.
And guess what, not one from my local Urmston area, even messages I've sent to local girls have been ignored or met with total apathy.
So it's travelling out 20- 30 miles for me. :(

Goodness me.. so by the OPs judgement, all men with shaven heads are thugs!
 
Perhaps it is a narrow mind which prevents them from finding all the decent men in Urmston!?

Who'd have thought that things would turn out this way, when I place the ad. on Karen's behalf? It's a shame that certain events have made it impossible for Tom and I to attend the wedding, when it eventually takes place.
Wishing you the very best of luck Dave.
