As it turned out, the guided tour was fascinating and I was touched that he’d put so much time into our evening together. “You can leave now.”And how about the guy who answered his mobile a minute into our date and then had a twenty minute call. I was walking home by the time he text me to ask where I was. Okay I have another date tonight but he’s 22 so he’s an unproven idiot. But young lads do have a habit of constantly referring to my age.

I’m a good-looking 31 year-old professional man with a great sense of humour and a passion for reading, writing, exercising and socialising. For my part I’ve fallen in love once and become infatuated a number of times. That malicious magician, Cupid, pulled the curtain back on each of his tricks to reveal the truth: each and every one of them was a crude and tawdry sham.
