Not only do they have life experience to bring to the table but boy, do they know how to make the most of an evening. Body-glossing, outfit-finding, baby-sitter ordering , instructions leaving. To you – no big deal, we’ll just reschedule another time!
Be warned however, when it comes to getting it right, there’s a lot that can go wrong. To her – do you think that wheelie bin is big enough to hold a human body. Do suggest a venue and pick up the tab Your date spends her life supporting others, picking things up, running around, making arrangements, organising lives, lunch boxes and how the hell she’s going to pay this month’s nursery bills on top of the mortgage.

Or cancel At your absolute peril cancel a date with a single mum.You’ve got three hours of responsibility which involves alcohol, good food and snogging. They have three hours of unadulterated freedom – they want to talk about wine and where the next glass is coming from. Make it fun You’ve had a hard day and need to vent to someone? Don’t get too involved ‘I can’t wait to be a dad, I’d love to meet your kids, shall we go to Whipsnade for our next date? I spoke to a few friends about their experiences with online dating websites.One friend brought up a message where a man had told her that because she was a ‘woman of size’, she ‘must suck good ****’.
