Thread: "I'll just go and brush me teeth, will I, love?"

  1. #1

    Default "I'll just go and brush me teeth, will I, love?"

    I just spotted this on the Irish Times website:

    Romantic secrets of over-60s sought for research - The Irish Times - Mon, Jan 28, 2013

    Some research is being done into the love lives of over 60s.

    Volunteers are being sought for a study of the love life of older people in Ireland.

    The research, being carried out at NUI Galway by doctoral student Kate Burke, will examine romantic relationships of people over 60. Participants should also either be in a relationship or have been in one in the past 10 years.

    Ms Burke, a trainee clinical psychologist, is carrying out her research under the supervision of psychology lecturer Dr Michael Hogan.

    “Older adults are largely neglected when it comes to this kind of research,” Ms Burke said. “However, I think older people have a lot of experience and can offer a different perspective that younger people can’t.”

    So that they might have a helping hand (not the hand some of the people around here consider to be a love life), perhaps people might care to share details of their love lives.

    We’re all strangers here, so why not talk about one of those things that a lot of us did at one point in time, or will do in the future?

    No filth and no pictures please, let's just have a chat about the ups and downs of relationships. Maybe some of you might even have some hints about how to make relationships work, for us younger guys

    I like the title.

    Reminds me of the old joke:

    -Elderly Wife shouts form the bedroom 'Run up stairs and make love to me'
    -Husaband responds 'Its one or the other'.

    There really is no response to that.

    Should I ask where it is you put them?

    On a good night, wherever they land. On a bad night, you need a special little box.

    Wait till Hitch 22 sees this. He has all the answers to romantic problems.
    Well, he'll have videos and books for us anyway.
