...i met this amazing irish girl who was staying in my hostel, we had an amazing night out just drinking and having a good time, i think we fell in love with each others accent more than anything

You fell in love with her accent did you? Yep, I certainly believe you. The number of ugly chicks I've spent all night with just "drinking and having a good time" because their accents are just soooo lovely. Yeah, there's been about zero of them

Yeah thanks mate. Most people take things I say (both on and offline) the wrong way and want to kill me. I'm glad you see things the way they are intended.

Sorry, I have to run. Someone's knocking at the door

....If it's going that way, let's see what the clever folks of TP (James, that probably means you) can put together for me. I can't be bothered to read the exixsiting pages of entries, so its possible that my soul mate has already replied here without my knowing.

I'm a sad, old, lonely, single British guy looking for something which doesn't involve sheep ....

Well I know this gorgeous blonde 18 year old bi-sexual nymphomaniac who's father owns a chain of pubs, but unfortunately she's only into happy old lonely single British guys. Sorry

I've just moved to a new area and its quite young and cool studenty (though actually I'm a bit old to chase 19year old undergraduates)

But I might start at least brushing my hair before a trip to Tesco cos you never know who might be there, our eyes meeting across the maris pipers.....

You're never too old to chase 19 year old undergrads....
Just try and avoid Tesco between 17.35-18.00 (Neighbours) and 18.30-19.00(Hollyoaks), as these are religious times for students....

I think the cheap beans and pot noodle section would probably make an ideal hunting ground...;)

Ugh 2 minute noodles, that was all i ate in Australia.

Hmmm....If I'm being picky I should probably hang around the fresh pasta and organic veg, for a different class of bloke.

I left the cheap beans and pot noodles alone a long time ago too! ;)

Fresh pasta and organic veg.....now I think you've just narrowed your potential chance of meeting a bloke to about.....erm, pretty slim..
If, however, you broaden your shopping experience to include the alcohol section, you'll be on to a winner....

Unfortunaly my shopping experience already includes far too much lurking in the booze aisle!
