Ive noticed that there are people from all over the world willing to chat but it seems all the uk members on here dont seem to talk much!No offence to everyone else and i still enjoy my chats with everyone,"just wondered why especially the british lads dont seem to talk much"is it because they are just on here to a date,if they take a peek at picture and dont like what they see! maybe its as simple as that,anyone got any answers? "no offence intended".

Here's a question for you bountylover -

Clive Barnes said "Television is the first truly democratic culture -- the first culture available to everybody and entirely governed by what the people want. The most terrifying thing is what people do want." What's your favourite TV programme? And Why?

OK.....the M25. Imagine miles and miles of lifeless, souless, grey, bleak, unwelcoming, life sappingly horrendous motorway - then fill it with unhappy, irritable, impatient, angry, hot & sweaty drivers stuck in an endless, pointless, meaningless battle with 90% of the inhabitants of London - and you'd be about 50% of the way to describing the M25 - otherwise it's BRILLIANT!!!!

Seriously, it probably doesn't come anywhere close to the congestion on the "freeways" of the US, but over here the thought of trying to get around the M25 can strike fear into the hearts of even the bravest of individuals.

Hmmm...guess I've got to get you started on the M25. Because otherwise, I'll have no idea what it is...

(love the comment about talking a glass eye to sleep...new one for me! ha!)

Well being a salesman I could quite happily talk a glass eye to sleep, but you really need a subject. I couldn't possibly comment on why other guys from the UK don't chip in a little more often, although I will say that I myself took a slightly "voyeuristic" approach to this when I joined all those months ago......I would be happy enough to read everyone elses blogs but would never have anything contructive to add - now you can't shut me up!!

(Oak...Don't get me started on the M25)

Lilyanne, I only meant that we Irish are reserved in the sense that there are not many Irish talking online here and many Irish are not good at "blowing their own trumpet" (inbred in us I think) though I do think the younger generation are much better at this - thankfully, I'm all for acknowledging one's own achievements and talents. I do agree wholeheartedly with you that we as a whole are up for the "craic" (pronounced "crack" and is the Irish word for "fun", just so you're not mislead people - lol)

So, let's hear from more Irish about any topic and of course from the English too. Bhfuil aon sceal agat? (any news?)

I am interested by Tallandloveit's comment that 'the English like the Irish are reserved'. I am Irish but have lived in Hertfordshire for 30 years. I would never regard the Irish in general as being reserved. I think that we (Irish) are regarded as very out going, would chat to anyone, and not in the least reserved. I think as a whole the English race are reserved but less so that they were 20/30 years ago. Also having being out with a friend of mine visiting from London she remarked at the differences between the city and the country village where I live. As we did an eight mile country walk, people out on their bikes, horses or walking almost all said hallo and some did chat and she said this would not happen in London. I think that is perhaps more about city versus country life.
My experience of Ireland is that there is little or no reticence about striking up conversations with complete strangers which is some of the charm and friendliness of the place. Obviously what I have said is a generalisation and there are exceptions both ways. It was good to see you write in Gaelic which I still understand but could not spell it after so long a time. My friend is single in her fifties, does not want to join a dating site but would like to join a walking club that attracted people of her own age group. If anyone knows of one in London/Hertfordshire please let me know.

what would u like to chat about? anything in partic, or general stuff - I'm all for it? Describing world peace is a bit tough, but the weather, local traffic (ah, the M25!), those bods at work, work in gen, all of the above...
speaking personally, take a look at by profile (go on, I dare you...) and then let me know. I'm herts based, 3 years split, would love to get my life back on track....? Ok, let me know.

Tall and love it, Where are we? Sadly, all scattered out, by many hundreds, and thousands of miles.

I think that we(British Men) 'chat' when there is something useful and constructive to say. We may not talk a lot but when we do I believe it may be worth listening to.

There is a huge amount of British humour in this though, hope it is appreciated

Hi charmed.

I think the English, like the Irish, are very reserved. At least some English are chatting. I know we are a small country, but the diaspora is huge!!
So..... "c? bhfuil sibh?" (where are you?)
