Lonely heart of the week

By Axegrinder axeblog

“Never be single,” warned The Sun’s Julie Moult in an email to chums after trying her luck at internet dating. Judging by the first email which she received, it’s not hard to see why she’s not happy at her solo status.

Thankfully, a friend of Julie’s has forwarded the semi-literate but jaw-droppingly direct email to Axegrinder:

hi julie,

thought i’d say hi. am new to this, how have you found this dating online so far?

not sure what or whom i’m looking for but an honest fun girl with the ability
to be a best mate as well would be a good start.

blame an ex for this but i like to have my face sat on too ‒ not mandatory tho!

really liked your smile and the profile you wrote, so be great to hear from you.
