Things went so well on our first date

We dined by candlelight

We’d met across the internet

An Older Singles site.


The wine flowed freely through the night

And conversation too

We hit it off so well the we

Might start our lives anew.


But there’s a saying, though, that’s been

The joke and curse of Man

That if you want to make them laugh

Just tell the Gods your plan.


One question that she asked and I

Sensed my chance had gone

”How old do you suppose I am.”

I answered, “Knocking on”.

It’s not in the dental department where my body is malfunctioning, Ray.

You should have lied through your teeth, as long as you've got some John!

John - you know they're old when they ask that. And men are the same. We're all vain.

...sometimes you know as soon as you’ve said it!
Thanks, Martin, Hazel.

Oh dear indeed John. What a charmer. Puts me in mind of the character in Goodness gracious me, who is forever taking a woman out to dinner and getting it wrong
