A newly single Sheffield man on the hunt for some ‘no strings attached’ fun was given the cold shoulder by users of parenting website Mumsnet.
The local lothario asked ‘bored’ women to contact him. But within minutes of posting his request he was bombarded with hundreds of replies - mostly from women ridiculing him.
The post, which appeared last week under the pseudonym ‘sheffieldguy’, read: “I’m not looking for a relationship, just some no strings attached fun.
“Drop me a private message. I’m happy to travel up to an hour or so from Sheffield.”
Mumsnet users were quick to reply both on their website and Twitter.
One tweeted: “Bless his cotton socks. Don’t we all know a guy like that? Thinks he’s God’s gift to women.”
Another wrote: “Have to admire that level of optimism!!”
While another added sarcastically: “What an old romantic!”
The message was later removed from Mumsnet and replaced with a post poking fun at the would-be Romeo.
