    The Singles Thread - Getting people laid since 2008.

    Went dating mad over the weekend and put a lot of effort into it. I was talking to 7 at one point. Filtered it down to two by Wednesday. One we matched on Tinder, but turns out she is just here visiting family. She's actually from Scotland. Her cousin talked her into tinder. She'd not had a date in 6 years as been in a relationship. So I asked her out.......... Other girl, tinder again but she lived over my mums way. Conversation went good, we had a date arranged for the Monday coming, but yesterday she said she now had this evening free, and we arranged it for tonight. We had zero connection, it was awkward. Already deleted her number. So back to the Scottish girl, we actually got on amazing. We agreed a "not a date", which was amazing as there was no pressure! Accidentally kissed her a few times. Sadly she's not from round here, but I've asked her out for tomorrow anyway before she goes home never to be seen again.

    So I've met the 19 year old twice since the incident. Seeing her tomorrow night too, and we have plans for next week too. My moral compass is spinning, but I'm enjoying the time together and the genuineness of someone younger.

    Who gets busy for three weeks? Bet she has time to see her mates amongst all of that.

    Sounds a lovely bloke. I've told her we can hang out Thursday evening again for a bit. She likes me, I just want to be careful not to lead her on or hurt her. I've alluded to this in a message last night. I honestly had such a mad weekend. I'm relieved to be back at work today and some normality!

    I've had mild anxiety myself so I can relate in a small way to how she felt. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. She got too drunk. She's going to the doctors tomorrow

    Oh OTF, why do these things happen to me? So last night I pulled a 19 year old. I'm 29 :| She was flirty and exchanged kisses and enjoyed that. Then disaster struck. She was 3rd wheeling with her friend/bf, and I'd bought her a drink. She said she felt sick, and within moments projectile vomit all over the floor at our feet. Bouncer saw and said we had to leave, fair enough and he went and got her some tissues to clean herself up. We went outside and went to get a taxi, at this point I was going back with them all fwiw. Get her in the taxi, and then she has another small amount of sick, this time straight down my shirt. Wonderful, going really well None went on the taxi, but he said we had to get out, and obviously all the other taxis had seen us get back out so they wouldn't take us. By now she'd become drunkenly limp, so needed support to walk, she was in a bit of a state. Then out of nowhere, she has a full blown major anxiety attack in the middle of the road (closed off at nights), and immediately she's terrified of every human around, except for me, she was taking comfort in me being there, but she literally could not calm down. She was causing a commotion, people were coming over concerned, and the more they did the worse it made her as she was literally terrified of these people. The bouncer who'd asked us to leave was now outside trying to support and calm her down, nothing was working. She was backing herself against a wall to try get away from people. She wasn't calming down, couldn't walk much, we couldn't get a taxi not that she would have gotten in one, the bouncer eventually after 40 minutes of this tried to get an ambulance, but they refused and said it was a mental health issue for a GP so ambulance can't be dispatched, however we should take a taxi to the hospital. Problem being she was having a full blown melt down, couldn't breath, and the taxis all at this side of town had seen her in the road for the last 40 minutes, so they weren't going to take her. Eventually foot traffic calmed a little as it was getting later, 2am, I took control of the situation despite just meeting this girl and I said that we needed to get her to the other side of the road barriers to a different set of taxis where they might take her. She had calmed a tiny amount to where she was standing but unable to walk past people, she was still terrified and clinging onto me for dear life. In the end I told her to close her eyes and keep them shut, I literally picked her up over my shoulder and carried her across the town. It looked like I was abducting her Got to a taxi with an English driver which is quite rare, so I put her down and told her to keep her eyes closed (people around us now), and I spoke to the taxi man, explained she was having a severe attack, and that she was loud, causing a commotion and in a really bad state, but we needed to get her to the hospital, and he agreed to take us. Got to the hospital at 2.20ish, she was screaming a&e down, eventually they took us through (her friends still with us), she was still stuck to my side, adamant she wanted me to stay with her so I had little choice but to oblige really. They did blood tests, did and ECG, hooked her up on IV fluids, gave her anti sickness stuff, and eventually at 8am they let her out. When she was on the drip, even after being on a bed for an hour, her heart rate was still smashing 140 bpm, god knows what it must have been when we was in the town. I really felt for her, she was so embarrassed about everything. Anyway I aren't sure if this was a good idea, but I've just spent 5 hours with her this evening. We are worlds apart in background, but the time with her was really nice, and for the first time since I can remember, I was content even in moments of silence just cuddling up, like you could genuinely tell she appreciated someone being nice to her for once. So yeah, known her less than 24 hours, she was sick on me, she bled on me at one point, and I was also then responsible for carrying her bra and dress when she was admitted to the bed (in the lovely gown they get given!) so I technically got her underwear off too. I don't think I'll ever beat this one lads.

    It wasn't really appropriate tbh she was still in bits in the back of the police car. I asked to say goodnight and wish her well, but she really just wanted to go home. She'll appreciate it more today than at the time, I'm sure of that.

    Not entirely sure why I am posting in here, But. Walking home tonight I saw a damsel in distress, absolutely distraught, crying her eyes out opposite side of the street. Not a guy in sight. Approached her as defensive as humanly possible and asked her to concentrate on her breathing and eventually calmed her enough to learn she had been chased by 5 guys further down the street. As we walked up we came across police who already had someone in the car, I asked her if she wanted to speak with the police and she did, so I knocked on a window and waited. Explained, she was taken into the car, I was not, no idea what happened but they were going to take her home safe. I feel decent Glad she got home safe. I dread to think if the wrong person had intercepted her.

    The OTF Homeowners Thread

    I can't afford to rent. I'm in a house share and currently unable to have my daughter overnight unless I drive to my mums which is an hour away. I don't really care about what possessions I may or may not be able to afford. I just want somewhere I can have my daughter.

    I'm writing an email as we speak and this is my offer. I'm going to make it clear that this is all I can afford, take it or leave it; I want to know by end of business tomorrow.

    The OTF Homeowners Thread

    What are the thoughts on this. So my valuation came back at £75k, house advertised at £82.5k and they'd originally accepted £79k (Yes I live in a peasant town, and in a not so nice area, it's not the location I'd like but I need a house and it's nice inside so I don't care; please don't judge me) The vendors have come back and said that they will accept £76k, which is 3k less than my accepted offer, however it means that I have to pay them 1k cash alongside my deposit. I can save £200 on the deposit, so effectively means finding an additional £800. I will literally not have any money left to move in with. But I really really need to move from this house share. I've already committed to the survey fee, £330, and the search fees, £105. So 445 committed. I don't particularly want to have to try and find another property now as this would set me back weeks if not months. Do I reluctantly pay the 1k, or do I play hard ball and upset them some more? They've found a house so they need the sale to go through. I need to decide what to do in the next hour. From their perspective they must be pretty miffed, as they rejected my first offer which was actually 76.5k. To have to accept 75k, I wouldn't be overly happy if I was in their position. But this is about me. Are they going to accept if I hold them to ransom? They have equity in their house, I really don't think they actually need 1k, where as I really do. Theirs is the difference between a percentage of equity in their new property, for me it's actually moving into a home with no money in my pocket. Help.
