I've been internet dating since September 2009. This is a spreadsheet of the results from the main site I've used.

Now updated to end May 2011

I’ve always thought of you as Mr Spread-sheets.

Well I did try clicking on the link there only to become embroiled in a Kafkaesque series of further meta links (if I understnd correctly the meaning of the word ‘meta’, which is doubtful) which upon clicking on them in turn delivered come-hither enreaties such as:

‘XML document must have a top level element. Error processing resource’

Which sounds to me like the sort of veiled comment on one’s internet-based love life which could crush a man. Well it would crush me. Of course you are made of sterner stuff and will soldier on regardless, and best of luck to you, so.

Sorry- entreaties. Let the record be corrected to show that I know the word is actually ‘entreaties’. Similarly, ‘understand’. Blame Marks and Spencers and their exemplary 5.5% own-branded Staffordshire IPA.

Ah, botheration! I suspect you’re using Word to open it.

Don’t do it for the dazzling intellectual depths and sexual revelations that you will uncover in my document, (as disappointment often offends) but as your incremental bit towards sharing things without relying on cartels:

And re your second post, I would love to pop over to Crinklyville now but I am similarly hampered by some out of date Thatcher’s Katy cider which the corner shop sells at a ruinous half price, and would be of little help in commenting. So I will reserve that pleasure until tomorrow.

looby, n.; pl. loobies. A lout; an awkward, stupid, clownish person

M / 59 / Bristol, "the most beautiful, interesting and distinguished city in England" -- John Betjeman [1961, source eludes me].

"Looby is a left-wing intellectual who is obsessed with a) women's clothes and b) tits." -- Joy of Bex.

WLTM literate woman, 40-65. Must have nice tits, a PhD, and an mdma factory in the shed, although the first on its own will do in the short term.

There are plenty of bastards who drink moderately. Of course, I don't consider them to be people. They are not our comrades.
Sergei Korovin, quoted in Pavel Krusanov, The Blue Book of the Alcoholic

I am here to change my life. I am here to force myself to change my life.
Chinese man I met during Freshers Week at Lancaster University, 2008

The more democratised art becomes, the more we recognise in it our own mediocrity.
James Meek

Tell me, why is it that even when we are enjoying music, for instance, or a beautiful evening, or a conversation in agreeable company, it all seems no more than a hint of some infinite felicity existing apart somewhere, rather than actual happiness – such, I mean, as we ourselves can really possess?
Turgenev, Fathers and Sons

I hate the iPod; I hate the idea that music is such a personal thing that you can just stick some earplugs in your ears and have an experience with music. Music is a social phenomenon.
Jeremy Wagner

La vie poetique has its pleasures, and readings--ideally a long way from home--are one of them. I can pretend to be George Szirtes.
George Szirtes

Using words well is a social virtue. Use 'fortuitous' once more to mean 'fortunate' and you move an English word another step towards the dustbin. If your mistake took hold, no-one who valued clarity would be able to use the word again.
John Whale

One good thing about being a Marxist is that you don't have to pretend to like work.
Terry Eagleton, What Is A Novel?, Lancaster University, 1 Feb 2010

The working man is a fucking loser.
