What's the dating scene looking like for fukers? Are people still persevering with apps (holy trinity of Tinder/Bumble/Hinge)? Or am I missing something?

Nah. In person dating making a big comeback. Meeting birds in bars speed dating even making a big comeback in some parts.

Bought a piece of audio equipment (vintage cassette deck) off someone on gumtree. Stupidly trusted them when they assured me that it's in excellent working condition. It doesn't work.

Doesn't seem like I have any recourse except to demand a refund, though of course my messages so far have not been responded to.

Anyone been in a similar situation? How did you handle it?

I'm not super confrontational so unlikely to head over to his place and lob it through the window or anything like that.

That's very kind, he's on the outskirts of Bristol.

The thing that makes it really annoying is that it was a gift for a friend's birthday Sad

I paid cash.

Update, he's just responded apologising and saying I can return it this evening.

Maybe he's on Fuk? Laughing out loud

So probably too much information to share on a Monday morning but here we go.

Was with the gf on Friday night. Normally go in protected, but thought hey, caution to the wind and all. Feels all quite normal, until the point of entering her, when there is this numbing pain. Instant boner kill. The gf is upset that I don't fancy her. Tears commence Laughing out loud

A bit more reading when I get home, and it turns out I have phimosis. I'm uncircumsised, and basically my foreskin is too tight. The pain was caused when it was trying to roll down the head at the point of insertion. Not been a problem in the past with condoms. Gone down this rabbit hole now about how I didn't know this was a thing. I thought all pornstars were cut and that's why their dicks looks different Laughing out loud Convinced the gf that this was my problem, and booked in a call with the GP this afternoon. Lots of stuff on the internet, from stretching it out, to using steroid cream, to getting circumsised. Yay…

TLDR: I'm 34 and just found out that my dick doesn't work like it should.

Not judging the question/situation, but this definitely was an understatement.

You need to snap your banjo string mate, usually happens during the first few times.
At the back of the head you’ll see it causing tension when you get hard.

They should be able to give you a snip without a circumcision. Google frenuloplasty.

Laughing out loud yeah or just you know…… visit a qualified medical professional?

no offense but I am amazed you’ve got to 34 without realising this.. have you never had unprotected sex? it’s not that uncommon though and very treatable so you shouldn’t worry

Yeah, sorry mate. Just wanted to put it out there to see if there were others like me Laughing out loud

Yeah, I'm as surprised as you are. Feels like I don't know my own penis after all these years.

I've literally had unprotected sex about 4 times. Massively paranoid about having an accidental kid, no matter how careful around timing, etc.

On a side note, booked an appointment with a GP using private medical. They've assigned me a woman, and wondering if I should change to a bloke just to make it more relateable (no offence to women doctors, I'm sure she's capable)?
