When I wasn’t ignored, it often felt as if I were on a production line.
One woman I met in a bar early on claimed haughtily that she’d been out with a man called Mike the day before and was meeting another called Steve the following day. One 45-year-old sent me a picture of herself six months ago posing stark naked in bed.
We enjoy regular Sunday lunches together and if there’s someone I’m considering introducing our sons to, Christabel — who’s been with a new boyfriend for the past two years — will meet her first. But I was torn between spending time with Alison and seeing my boys.
Steve Gormill, 42, is a divorced health and safety adviser from Glasgow. His marriage of 13 years, to Nicole, 42, a teacher, broke down in 2009. After I’d put my son to bed, a stunning woman with dark hair caught my attention on the dating site.Four dates have ended up in bed; three after just one date.The women have all made the first move: I’m a gentleman and would never initiate sex, although I suspect they were only doing so to win my affection.The build-up is rarely racy: one woman cooked me chicken casserole last month before kissing me on the sofa.The next morning, she made tea and I left with a spring in my step.
