Hi, I'm nearly 40, fit and healthy, divorced with a 6 yr old kid and haven't dated for 6 years.

Can't be arsed with internet dating ( mainly because my photo seems to put women off ) and don't like hanging out down the pub.

Any tips for meeting women? I know this is the right place to ask.

There was a programme on young people in China on BBC3 this week. There is huge pressure put on them by their parents to be married by the time they are 25. Men are outnumbering women because of the one child policy so they showed this guy loitering in the street stopping any woman he liked the look of and asking her to swap numbers. The first two told him to go away but the third gave him her number. You could try that.

As you have a young child, the school run would seem to be the obvious place, lots of single mums and you'll have your kids to talk about as an easy opening line.
Report Clouseau September 4, 2015 10:04 PM BST
Simple plan:

Go to nearest decent sized supermarket and loiter around the deli counter. When a lady that takes your fancy approaches the counter and starts eying up the goods then sidle up to her from behind and whisper in her ear, "I've got a pound of sausage that you can nibble on if you like." (n.b. it is important that she doesn't can't confirm it was you at this point.)

When she turns around in disgust, you also turn and go and punch the closest innocent male bystander whilst exclaiming that you heard what he said and were similarly disgusted by his behaviour.

She will be impressed by your heroism and apologetic that she assumed it was you... you are in... never fails, try it. Cool

... to give you a b l o w j o b

1. You spill coffee down your trousers and then tell her you have to take them off and rinse out the coffee to avoid a stain;

2. (You've already had the prescience to train a pet wasp to come at your command and settle on you without stinging). You then whistle the wasp to come and settle on your exposed todger (you're best to have spread a bit on jam on it earlier - your todger, not the wasp - or it may settle on your knee);

3. you then pretend the wasp has stung you, that you're allergic to wasp stings , and that could she suck the poison out before you go into shock.

The "join a gym' idea is cr@p!

True, there are some fit people there of both genders, but even making I contact is an invasion of their space!

They are there for one reason only, and often in limited time, and will not be happy to have some, 'over the hill reject'
getting in the way of that!

Most of the members wear head phones in any case, and that is partly to distance people, and not just for the music (a bit like people on the tube)
with headphones and a magazine.

OP the work place is the best to find birds if you have no social life left. Presumably you don't work (as per most on this forum) maybe you could do a few hours a week voluntary? Or join some evening class maybe? Find somewhere where there is plenty of women obviously. You need to have access to women to pull them.

I was married for 16 years to a hideous money grabber, got divorced, lost my lovely house as she had nothing and the judge was completely on her side. I never thought I'd be in love again after that horrendous experience which cost me about £600K.

Lo and behold, I was walking Muttley 2 months ago and stopped off for a mid afternoon livener on the way back to my house and a truly beautiful woman approached me whilst I was sitting on my own with my pint, my dog and checking out the days racing ahead on my phone. We are now going to get married and in all my years (I'm 49 tomorrow) I have never known a feeling of such love and adoration ever. You just don't know what or who is waiting around the corner in life and I have never been happier in my entire life. Love

There's a few good international web sites where you can arrange to meet that special lady for marriage or companionship.

Just be careful to inspect the photo's carefully. I feel into that trap, although I have to say I've never watched so much footie, the garden has never looked so good and there's always someone to put the bins out.

The point about her being loaded relates to your previous experience with marriage when you were cleaned out, not suggesting that you would find wealth attractive per se.

If you are the relative pauper in the relationship, then presumably the same cannot happen again.

How did she accumulate her wealth?  Divorce?
