Here’s some more fun and dare we use the term useful stuff for when you need a man! 



“Oh no, I don’t drink.”
So, like, what do you do then?
“Actually, I’m just vanilla in bed.”
Yawn! Bring back the tee-total guy, please.
“Sorry, but ‘Hi’ just doesn’t work for me.”
What?!? A face like that and the bitch expects poetry?
“Are you hung?”
The question that comes from someone who’s 100% hung-ry bottom.
“Yo m8, wt u up 2?”
“I’m just reading Spelling and Grammar for Dummies – wanna borrow it after?”
So you’ve made it to your first gay date…



1) They are seven years older than their profile photo

We all love a silver fox, but when you’ve ordered some tender veal and a dry turkey turns up, you won’t be staying for dessert.

2) He has the table manners of a starving bulldog

If he could suck your dick like that, then life would be sweet, but in a restaurant it just means he’s got spinach on his chin and pepper on his nose.

3) They won’t shut up about their manor house in the country.

He’s either bullshitting, or he just genuinely has more money than personality. Either way, he’s paying and you’re gone.

4) His breath smells like the foundations of a cemetery

… And in the cosy restaurant you chose, you keep getting a whiff of it every time he lifts his head to tell you yet another dull fact about his life.

1. Being forward is not the way forward

Just because you had this guy delivered to your door like some Sloppy Giuseppe, does not mean you can greet him in a negligee like you would the pizza man. Much less on your knees like you would the postman.

2. Silence is golden

In other words, don’t wake the fucking neighbours. Sure, it’s all fun and games when you’re screaming to the high heavens and grunting like Gemma Collins doing Tough Mudder. Less so, when you’re being issued a warning for disrupting the peace at 7am with the grunts and groans from your twelve-man orgy.

3. Watch out for the ugly/hot

The rare breed of gay man that can send you half a dozen pictures and you still can’t figure out if he’s hot or not. Let’s not put the ‘duh’ in dumb. He’s NOT. And deep down you know he’s not, too. More fool you standing at the DLR station in the rain when he rocks up in Kappa trousers and a snaggle tooth.

4. Be prepared

Basically anything can happen. One minute you’re noshing him off, the next minute he’s slung you out before his boyfriend comes home. He’s sitting on your face, then your tied to the radiator by your balls. One minute you’re tea-bagging, the next he’s gone and so is your wallet. Be careful, play safe.
