A friend seeks my advice about dating..............

I had an odd date yesterday...Match. The guy is Irish, apparently presenting his 'shop window' upfront on a plate...works doing health and safety inspections in construction. Says he makes a good living from it.

He referred to Irish poets but didn't really go into detail about why he liked them, named names. Very, very enthusiastic about the fact that he could recognise me from my profile! We chatted and had a good time but I didn't feel anything much. I had my guard up though he was doing the 'touchy feely' and "I'm tactile" thing...which I don't like as it shouldn't be something anyone needs to detail.

He lived in England, went back to Ireland and had a house and family there...the family is still in Ireland and he says he's divorced. Showed me a nice pic of his daughter. Seemed a bit cagey about going back to Ireland...is about to go back for a week. He lost everything. No house of his own.

I found him a bit pushy but very entertaining. He's had cancer of the testicles so has only one which he then assured me was in full working order!!!! The oddest thing is that he used to be a Roman Catholic priest and left...showed me a picture of himself in his diocese with all these other clergy. He married and had this daughter.

Very pushy. We had a pint of cider and both of us were driving. We ended up going over the limit before driving home which I find very uncomfortable. When he went to get a second drink, he said he'd get a small wine and a glass of water but came back with a huge one and a glass of water. I felt pretty pissed an thawed out. So we held hands but that was as far as it went...which I am happy about. He lives..wait for it...with one of his old parishioners who is in his eighties and wants to know what he is doing all the time....

The most disturbing things for me were that he wanted to arrange the next date before we'd had the last. I didn't like the drinking thing as it's too risky...but most of all, he agreed with everything I said, all the time. In a text just now he said I have a nice bum but he couldn't even see my bum!!

Yet, we had a pleasant time and he was good company...What's your gut feeling?

My gut feeling is she should run a mile, but she is not sure.... facepalm:

And yes, this is the same person who got pissed at a rock festival and who is 62  noooo:

This guy is 100% wrong  noooo: noooo: noooo: 

Your friend should text him and tell him that she is sure he is very nice guy but she did not feel that there was a connection between them.  Then ignore any further contact with him  whistle:

I did point out that a divorced Catholic priest who assures you on a first date that he has one fully operational bollock and then tries to get you drunk might be a bit dodgy  noooo:

Surely as an intelligent lady she would have seen through that   ::)

I have a friend who is the same when it comes to men,  she has a really responsible job that needs her to be strong and fearless when tackling people but when it comes to men in her private life she is so na´ve and gullible . confused:
