I went to a festival alone before. Made a tonne of friends from it's forums so if I can go from Ireland on my own and have a blast, you certainly can :)
If I like it, It's probably awful.

Due to the shitness of this, I am 90% certain I'm going to Bloodstock alone this year ahha! Should be a blast.



I went to Bloodstock alone last year. Wasn't too bad, had a chinwag with a few people from here and saw more bands than I would have done if I had someone with me which is something I actually enjoyed.

Yeah well where I grew up there was never a rock pub in the first place. Just shitholes full of dickheads and neds, and Tennents Lager.


To be honest I'm not sure if I really do miss being in a relationship nowadays. I do miss the company, probably, but the fact I've come to the conclusion that all women seem to be a little crazy has somewhat consoled me :lol: Maybe it's just the ones I tend to come into contact with. In all seriousness though it does seem a bit like naebody is about. All the nice ones are either already in a relationship, or too far away. And since I've been already labelled as being "too nice" I suppose that says it all.

It's simpler however. :D

I'll be honest. The only things I miss from my last relationship were the sex and cuddling. Being without everything else isn't particularly bothering me, which is awesome.

Yeah but you're a girl. It's easier to get fucked and cuddled when you hate tits and all that :P

you've gotta be with someone you can at least have a good conversation with. Cuddling and fucking only lasts so long before you end up going to the pub

Score : To eat one's face. No more. No less.
Pulled : Above but included with either a handjob or oral sex.
Gettin' ones hole : To engage in copulation with another person or persons.


Edit: Oh yeah we have this stupid one the Dubs us called "meeting", I don't know if any of the brits use it. But it's no different from making out or scoring. It's stupid and I don't like saying it. ¬__¬



Up north i'd say it'd go;

Skanked/saw/got into= kissed

rid/bucked/smashed her pastie etc=had sex with

Pulled could be either or anything in between

"Brought home" is a weird one because it implies but doesn't necessarily mean sex. Like I have a semi-regular bed guest who i get naked with and kiss and "stuff" but don't have sex with.


Anyway welsh woman is home in a few days, and I feel like I need to talk to her about where she thinks me and her are going. Last time we reassessed are situation she said pretty clearly she didn't want me as a boyfriend, and that we were just friends who enjoy a bit of sex and that occasionally as well. That's exactly how I saw it too, but recently she's been behaving like it's less of a casual thing, and sent me a text about English women looking to take advantage of me or something similar before I went away this weekend. That's one of a few hints she's made recently that makes me think she wants a monogamist relationship between us.

I hope i'm wrong because i'm just simply not up for this thing advancing any more than it has. 8 months ago, before she decided we were moving to fast and dumped me, then my feelings were a lot stronger for her. Now it'd just be dishonest to pretend I feel that way and that I think we could work in the long term, and i've been lied to before by someone who didn't want to hurt my feelings and it was a lot more hurtful thing to do in the long run. If I do have to tell her that though i'm going to seem like a dickhead no matter what because it is little over a week til her birthday. Fuck I hope i'm just being paranoid about this.

Here is wisdom - or at least for my anyway. The physical stuff alone can be great for a while, but if there's nothing else there then there's little point.

Curling up on the sofa with a brew and chatting is much more interesting in the long run for me.

I think a nice balance between all of the different aspects of a relationship is the best thing really. BUT I NEED MY CUDDLES.

Sometimes we can go for hours without a meaningful conversation, just "You want a cup of tea?" or "What's on TV?". Just being in the general vicinity of each other is enough. I'd probably get sick of cuddles if that's all we did, sometimes we just can't be arsed, and we generally spend whole evenings doing different things.

Bedtime is cuddle time. :D
