Helping Out

Per a radio conversation I heard. So many gals and so many guys can't find partners. In spite of the obvious success of the internet for hooking up, the advice was to get out and socialise. Hooking up via the net can be good, but actually meeting people in real life and hitting it off is perhaps preferred.

I don't do neither now. I am sufficiently endowed (insert pregnant pause) with friends and family.

The woman who was talking on the radio gave an example of a place she frequented where there were twelve eligible guys.

Let me see, twelve guys. One must be outright gay. One gay for pay. One effem, perhaps straightish. One who would root a tin of worms. The rest varying shades of straight.

I was afraid that I would not hear where this place was with twelve unattached men. But the interviewer pressed the point at the end of the interview and it turned out to be a motor repair garage in New South Head Road, Edgecliff, Sydney.

I think it is sad that local Edgecliff girls would probably not be interested in a motor mechanic for a relationship, but I'd reckon there might be a few local lads who would be, or who could at least relieve the lads' frustrations.


  1. As a single lass, it is very difficult to find eligible peoples, even if you do go out. To be honest I have kinda given up and I am comfortable with being single and doing my own thing. My life is good :)

  2. As a single guy, I find it difficult to find anyone...and I'm always going out.

    Continual rejection eventually takes it's toll so I don't try any more.

  3. Andrew - are you fishing for where I have my car serviced?

    BTW - a motor repair garage in New South Head Road, Edgecliff, you say. All you have to do is look to the bottom of my garden.

  4. A place to meet people... anywwhere that has a community of people sharing fun times together near a hospital. People can meet other people of any shade they like. If it is for conversation or otherwise, most people that work in a hospital are entertaining and smart and of course....employed and alot of them are looking for relationships too. I get people asking me to look out for single friends so they can "hook up". I say "No worries" but that is the end of that :)

  5. I get that Fen. I reckon if people get to a certain age and live alone, they would become quite selfish and like to do their own thing. Let's face it, you are soon to turn 30.

    AR, isn't that when it is supposed to happen? When you aren't looking?

    Victor, I just thought you may know the place or like to get to know the place.

    Yep Cazzie, I can imagine a hospital could be a good place to connect with people. My match making score is something like 0/10, so I don't try either.

    Genial fill someone in on and this mail helped me alot in my college assignement. Thank you on your information.

  7. To be honest, at this point I'd shag anything that could start a mower.



  8. Glad to help Anon. Whereabouts are you?

    Lol Pants. Isn't there an energetic nice young man in town who would swap some fun for some lawn mowing. Just don't set him up in a cafe with money from property developers.

  9. *whispers* I'm gonna be 35 this year Andrew, and yes, I'm selfish and set in my Fen ways! The thought of having someone else in my life is kinda unsettling, I can be a bit of a control freak, but I do miss the intimacy.

    Anyway, these are the decisions we make eh!

  10. ps - I worked in a hospital for a year and whilst there were plenty of hot nurses available, they were all in their early to mid 20's and too young for me. The docs etc were all old or married.

  11. Yep Fen, 35. You have fitted a lot in. So Matron was the only available piece of fluff. (imagine Benny Hill music with Matron in pursuit of Fen down a hospital corridor)

  12. Hahahha at Pants..I CAN and DO start my mower :)
