Either She's Desperate or He's A God!

Out walking along Princes Street I see a sign on a pedestrian crossing. It reads: "Graham / Graeme. I'm the French girl you met at UFRESH at the VENUE last Saturday (25/03) but I couldn't get your number before you disappeared... If you want to meet me again you can call me on 07910 141 xxx". Several things spring to mind, after I finished laughing. Firstly, she is desperate or ultra-naive as regards advertising on posts. Secondly, if he "disappeared" before you could get his number I'm guessing he didn't want you to have his number. Thirdly, maybe you now regret advertising your mobile number all over the place. Finally, and this is the most interesting of all, this is actually a really clever marketing company advertising a dating service to single men (called Graham). Sadly this was disproved the day I called her and got a French sounding girl's voicemail. We are going out this Thursday ;-)

  1. Phil or is it Philip? Dont really care, did you manage to get through to the girl with the number on the lampost and she duly told you to beat it? Maybe she just couldnt hear you on account of the tap tappity tap sound of your keyboard in the background, but none the less, there is no need to slate her on your website

  2. Hello and welcome from across the pond. In answer to your first question, it's neither, as you should be able to see from the huge banner across the top of the page. As for your second question, well that's answered in the article, should you choice to believe whether I phoned her or not and whether you think it is all an elaborate advertising campaign (as many people do). I do agree with you that innocent people should not be slated however I do not think that "she is desparate or ultra-naive as regards advertising on posts" is either unfair or unwarranted. Maybe she was really smitten by this guy and desperately wanted to see him again, I know I've done some very crazy things to see a girl again. The final thought I have on this, assuming she is a real person, is that she should have used the I Saw You column of an Edinburgh based magazine where you post such messages and get the security of a private number hosted by a phone provider (the caller obviously pays a premium rate for the call). Either way, thanks for reading and thanks for contributing whoever you are...

    Hey Phill, i realy like your web site and this posting by John Smith shows he is clearly an individual wih little else to do than log on to your quite exceptional web site and make a nuisance of himself. Personally i thought it was a hillarious account of a clearly desperate female, i mean lets be honest, what self respecting morally obliging girl leaves her number on a lamp post? Anyway, me and my girlfrends are intrigued as to whether that genuinely is you in the photos, we are very excited about how hot hot hot you look. speak soon, Ange

  4. Hello Ange(la). First off thank your for your comments, the first comments of my second year blogging. The pictures are all really me (except for this Robbie Williams lookalike) and what can I say - guilty as charged! It's nice to hear some friendly, almost familiar praise.

    Are you Angela Naysmith the bagpiper? Not that I'm stereotyping all Scots and playing the bagpipes. I'm glad you enjoyed the story, it really tickled me too. Feel free to post any time...

    Hey Phil(lip), and less of yours young man! I like your style, Robbie Williams and you look fairly alike, hmmm, the things i could..... Not for the open air! As for the bagpipes, no i havent blown them recently! shame as it is a favourite pastime. Anyway, i had to give my e-mail address to log in here - did you get that?

  6. That Robbie Williams lookalike isn't actually me, it's some bloke called Andy Regent. He used to hang around here a lot but recently he just hasn't seemed to make the effort :-( Email addresses used to post a comment are kept private for the systems purpose of recognising you (we can't always depend on cookies). Your private life remains a mystery, unlike mine which is plastered all over this site. Tell your friends about the site or any stories (such as this) that tickle your fancy - if you haven't already done so! Despite the opening sentence I hope I can still "entertain you" and everyone else :-)

  8. Sorry Ange, I can't let you post your email address here. "Company policy" is not to respond to any messages off-site, but thanks for the offer. Besides which I've just seen Hard Candy and anyone taking to other people over the net need their head examined.

    And finally as for thinking I'm "hot hot hot", well, you're only human! Aren't you? You do find this man edible...

  11. Phill - i see you have an admirer, why not take her up, she sounds a decent sort. Or is it because her details werent on a lamp post you arent interested?

    ReplyDelete
  12. :-) I have many admirers but I only have space for love of two people in my life; the beautiful KT and myself.

    Is there no one here who believes this is a really clever marketing ploy? I remember Andy certainly does...

  13. thats beautiful, who is KT? Tunstall? are you really the desperate one.... Good to know you love yourself, someone has to

  14. Well it seems very clear to me that neither John nor Ange(la) actually look at any other parts of this site aside from this page. I'm not going to answer any more personal questions that are already answered hundreds of times across my site. I don't see any more life left in this thread any more...

  16. I'm also 28 and I'm flattered but not interested. So that would be no where and at no time. You either need to read other pages on my site or just forget about me - that goes to the pair of you... :-)
