Re: DOES ANY SLEEP A LOT LIKE 14 HOURS

It's nearly 2.00 am and I am wide awake - yesterday, I got to bed at 4.00 am and it wasn't till early afternoon when I got up. There are times when I am wide awake when everyone else is asleep and vice versa. I think that as I live on my own, the fact of worrying about every day things - what has go...

Re: Tying laces

I don't think that I have contributed to this thread yet, but I will now. I had problems with tying shoe laces. Up until Year 7 of school, I wore shoes with Velcro or buckles on them, and plimsolls for PE, but of course at Comprehensive School I needed shoes with laces for PE. The same when I needed...

Re: Answering the phone.

Yes, I am the same. I almost freak out when I hear the telephone ring, and when I answer it with something generic like "hello", I almost panic thinking, who it could be. I had four telephone calls last week on each day, and I always think "who can that be?" I am the same when the postman delivers l...

A "can't be bothered" mood

We have had Blue Monday on the third Monday of January this year, but I have felt that my own Blue Monday has been the following Monday. For some reason, over the last few days, I have been in a "can't be bothered" mood - staying up all night and sleeping during the day - more alert at 3 am than at ...

Re: My Mum Passed Away

My mother had passed away back in 1999 from lung cancer. She did smoke for years which triggered her illness. I was only 21 at the time. I really sympathise for both of you - it can feel like being stranded at times. Since my mother went, I have lived on my own, but over 16 years later I have felt i...

Re: Surviving Valentines Day!!

Entirely valid rant on commercialism aside, it's a time of year when those of who are still or currently single are reminded more constantly of the fact that we've not got that special someone to share this and other days with. Indeed. It is an event that the greetings cards shops get excited over,...

Re: Is anyone else ambidextrous?

I am mostly right-handed when writing (that's handwriting as I use both hands to type this message), and I am mostly right-handed with other activities. I write with my left hand a bit like someone who has just started school, rather than someone who is a doctor! Strangely, I can click my fingers a ...

Re: Celebrity crush

Yes, I have had a crush on nearly every actress, pop star, character and so on in a denim skirt. I have also had crushes on boyband members in their "jeans and t-shirt" mode. The thought of it being quite normal if I dressed like them excites me a little bit, unlike people of the opposite sex of cou...

Re: Surviving Valentines Day!!

Yes, Valentine's Day can be horrible when it's almost impossible to find someone. This year is no different. However, I did meet someone in 2006 and of course this year marks 10 years since that happened. I am not with her anymore, but I am still in touch with her as a friend. I hope that I can find...

Re: Autographs

I have been collecting them for years. Far too many to mention, although I am sure that some got lost in a house move. The panto season is a great time of year to get autographs. Over Christmas, all four members of the boyband Blue were appearing in pantomime, and I decided to set myself a challenge...

Re: Find it hard having a gf

I know what you mean Tom, but I have been on my own for so many years that a woman nagging me would be a better than nothing!

Seriously, I would prefer a woman who I would be able to get on with.

Re: Find it hard having a gf

I can't speak directly from experience but I would always respect someone if I happened to be in a relationship with them. In 2006, I was with someone briefly. She said that she didn't like being touched, so I respected that, and our relationship was basically platonic - an extended friendship. In f...

Re: Friends letting you down (what to do?)

I have lost count how many times that I have been let down. It was my birthday recently, and in order to feel less vulnerable I wanted someone to help me with finding me someone (preferably female) to go with me on a trip to Scotland (280 miles on the coach). I had to go on my own in the end. There ...

Re: Single man seeks love in Nottingham or East Midlands

I have tried dating websites in the past, and from what I have experienced, it can be too expensive and the people on there hide behind pictures that are nothing like the person on there. I don't like being misled when it comes to things like that, and I prefer things like that to be honest and stra...
