I'm not going to be communicating with anybody, so honesty doesn't matter. Maybe you'd like me to put a photo of my actual self, so the guys can find me when we meet in the hotel lobby?

I've invented names for them - seemed a bit cruel to use their real online handles - and detailed what was attractive and what wasn't. Don't ask, don't get."Bad decision, Philip. There are millions of available men on the internet, glistening out there like delicious bunches of ripe fruit. I might as well move on to someone who's at least left theirs ajar. But he has to find out for himself.)Toby says, "I wish I had a bit more money so I could treat women to five-star dinners and trips to Venice, but for now it might be a round of drinks and a Nando's" - which is charming and likeable.
