X lifting up his top to show his abs and his ex-girlfriend's name tattooed on his chest. Among all the faces and messages, I started to communicate with a few blokes that seemed nice so started to meet up for the odd date. But a pattern emerged. All the guys I got on with and fancied didn't come from Manchester. Derby, Sheffield, Kent, Liverpool — all great dates, all who I would see again.
Manchester, on the other hand, seemed to be a hotbed of dating disaster. There was the guy who left his bobble hat on for the entirety of the meal. Don't get me wrong, I'm partial to a man in a beanie, wielding a skateboard this according to my mother is a "problem" at the age of 32 but this wasn't a trip down to Nandos to hold hands over a piri piri pita then make out behind the bins like teens. It was a grown-up date, and thus I kind of expected that when we sat down to eat, we would remove our outdoor attire. I'm sure he would have felt the same if I sat there eating my dinner wearing a deerstalker.
I started to get distracted; my outer voice answered questions and tried to make polite conversation while my inner voice was crying out: By the end of the meal, I'd given up trying to concentrate, I just stared at the hat.

On losing his ability to string together a sentence, I called time on the evening and insisted on dropping him at his door in a taxi as it was on my way home. As he got out of the taxi, to my horror, he thought it appropriate to grab my head and snog it. Whether I was involved in this snog or not seemed unimportant to him, I froze in horror as he covered my face in slobber. Then he gracefully stepped back, fell out of the cab into a large puddle and wobbled off into the darkness.
More recently there was the guy who was 14 years older.
A serial dater, he made no apology for the fact he just likes to chase women about, and internet dating is an efficient means to meet this objective. I like his honesty; I don't like his double denim. It will never go anywhere, apart from the odd visit to the Liars Club to get drunk on rum to make up for the gulf of common ground that we don't have apart from fancying each other's face.
I have met some nice blokes on dates in Manchester, three of which I've become friends with and hang out with from time to time still. So far, internet dating has been great for making friends, but sparks have only flown with people who live over the Pennines or up the M So here I am, back in my Stockport terrace, bashing my face against my keyboard still without biscuits with my inner monologue wailing out: But I also don't have a penis, want to be slobbered on in the back of a cab against my will or date someone with a mildly alarming attachment to his bobble hat.
