In your dreams does your lover have my face?

In your dreams does your lover have my face?

Those regular readers of my blog will realise that loneliness is a problem that has dogged me for years. I am sure that I have mentioned it in Every Silver Lining has a Cloud and Dancing on Thin Ice. Indeed, my last blog my entry, Reaching into the Darkness, discusses my horrendous Xmas 2021 and the need for fundamental change.

I am determined to beat this problem in 2022 and one of the ways in which I will try to expand my social circle is by trying to find a partner who will put up with me. I am ready to allow the right person into my life and hopefully find someone to share my planned new adventures with.

I will always remain fiercely independent with the support of my Personal Assistants. Any relationship developed will be a bonus to enjoy and certainly not a replacement for the individuals who help me to realise the ambitions that are still burning brightly within my heart.

To help this search for someone significant, I have set up a dating profile at – there are many problems that I have faced over the years with dating sites, but it beats sitting alone waiting for something to happen.

The following paragraphs have been taken from Wikipedia:[1] is a UK online dating site which claimed, in July 2013, to have over 200,000 users.[2] One of the original founders is Sarah Beeny, a TV presenter on Channel 4.

The site describes itself as having “a no-nonsense approach to dating”,[3] as all of the dating profiles on the site are written by friends of single people, instead of the single person themselves. The single person can approve what has been written before it goes live, and their friend can also get involved by recommending other users on MySingleFriend to them.

The site aims to match make singles through their friend’s descriptions of them, building an online community and taking away the hassle and stigma of writing your own dating profile.

Lets hope that something positive results from my 6 month membership. I won’t hold my breathe, but maybe, just maybe, we can find enough positivity to silence the cynical alter-ego that writes this blog.


Potential dates may wish to browse this site to further understand who I am. There are also three well-written testimonials about myself by three of my long-standing friends. The ‘About’ page gives a good quick summary of me and my achievements…

Taken from Wikipedia:

Buzzcocks are an English punk rock band formed in Bolton, England in 1976 by singer-songwriter-guitarist Pete Shelley and singer-songwriter Howard Devoto.[4] They are regarded as a seminal influence on the Manchester music scene,[citation needed] the independent record label movement, punk rock, power pop,[5] and pop punk. They achieved commercial success with singles that fused pop craftsmanship with rapid-fire punk energy. These singles were collected on Singles Going Steady, an acclaimed compilation album described by critic Ned Raggett as a “punk masterpiece”.[6]

Devoto and Shelley chose the name “Buzzcocks” after reading the headline, “It’s the Buzz, Cock!”, in a review of the TV series Rock Follies in Time Out magazine. The “buzz” is the excitement of playing on stage; “cock” is northern English slang meaning “friend”. They thought it captured the excitement of the nascent punk scene, as well as having humorous sexual connotations following Pete Shelley’s time working in a Bolton adult shop.[7] Per the band, there is no “the” in Buzzcocks.

Devoto left the band in 1977, after which Pete Shelley became the principal singer-songwriter.[8] After releasing three albums, as well as the “Singles Going Steady” compilation, the band broke up in 1981 following a dispute with their then-record label, but reunited in 1989, since releasing six more albums. Shelley died on 6 December 2018,[9] but the band has remained active. Steve Diggle, the guitarist and co-founder of the band, is singer. [10] They added a new guitarist Mani Perazzoli.[11] They are still touring and draw in large crowds from around the world.
