Reasons to be single

Yup, looks like this will definitely turn into a series

It’s like Lucy Mangan read my mind. Particularly the bulleted list at the bottom of the page! Though this section made me squeal with laughter:

"Two days before date, realise that your favourite outfit is still at the bottom of the laundry basket stinking of fags and spilled wine. Panic-buy something that makes you look like the sixth and saddest member of Girls Aloud and that you won’t realise until far too late is tight enough to garrotte your crotch and induce a strain of thrush so far unknown to medical science."

    hehe, that did make me laugh šŸ™‚
    “he is three years behind you in maturity and would notice you only if you were made entirely of footballs and sherbet fountains”
    That was so true… oh how things were so much more simple then. I think we get more than three years behind as we get older though… šŸ™‚

    But does the sherbert fountains thing stay true?!

    No, cos they have liquorice in them… yuk! Liquorice = the marmite of sweets and girls are nicer than marmite.
    I don’t think we’re that different when it comes to dating (still hate that word)… ok, so I wouldn’t epilate my legs… but I do get as nervous as a geordie in a spelling test…
    Actually had to stop a conversation about exfoliating in the pub the other night. It was like “what are we on about? – erm… did you see the Arsenal the other night?”
    I reckon men are from mars and women are from, I dunno, Phobos – apart from the fact that women are a total enigma, of course…
