I recently registered with an on-line dating service who shall (for now at least) remain anonymous.

I am writing this post now as a cautionary tale for others as I found the experience to have been an utter waste of time bordering an out-right con! Below is a copy (verbatim) of an email I recently sent their customer services department after discovering that their ‘free’ service was really only a lure to get you ‘in’, where upon you’ll find yourself completely unable to take any of the actions for which you signed up (namely finding and communicating with potential ‘dates’) without first paying for their ‘subscription’ service! Which begs the question of why have a free subscription in the first place? Anyway, see for yourselves…



There once was an odd man from Harrow,
Who believed that he was a Sparrow,
He’d perch upon ledge, and build nests in a hedge,
But at night he would sleep in a barrow.

(Edit: Had to update the ending to make it sound better)

Timbuktoo Stu’

A young man who came from ‘buktoo,
Looked like he belonged in a Zoo,
So big was his head,
All swollen and red,
It looked like the arse of a baboon!

Who Knew?

I once knew a man from Woking,
Not really, I am only joking,
The truth is he was from Carlisle,
Although I haven’t seen him in a while.
