Ageing middle aged roue, lawyer, blogger and professional Rioja drinker seeks attractive, amusing woman who does not spend her leisure hours reading Rayden on Divorce or stripping newsagent shelves of Bride Monthly. Tax and Trust lawyers or those with off-shore expertise need not apply. Smokers encouraged and drinking is compulsory.
Despite the fact that I have been married so many times I now have an ASBO prohibiting me from going within 200 yards of a Church, Register Office or other licensed place for the purpose of committing libertarian suicide, I am not, contrary to the *advert* above, looking for love or a shag.
No… I am assisting my good friends over at LawandMore with their latest idea, cooked up possibly after work at a decent wine bar. Their idea? The Dating Game…
This is what I received from the most amusing editor (she who set fire accidentally to my chest hair while I was a guest of LawandMore at an excellent lunch last summer)
Are you single? Is the person sitting next to you single? Is James from IP single?
Law and More, after numerous requests, has finally got round to introducing Lawandmore Dating. The section will work much as you find in The London Paper/Metro but, obviously, we’ll be sending out hot lawyers out on various escapades around the capital – wine tasting, slap up meal for two, dancing lesson etc ( also happy to organise any requests) (all expenses paid, naturally) . All we require you to do is a. have fun b. to write up a smart and sassy review of the evening and any intricacies that evolve! You can, of course, remain anonymous should you so wish. All we require is the name of your firm/chamber/practice and a few photographs of the evening which can be altered to preserve confidentiality. Of course, as this section is totally new, we are very much open to any ideas you may have to make this section fly.
We are currently inviting all singletons that work within the legal profession (and would like to go on a date with a foxy peer) to submit a very short resume stating: Sex, Age, Orientation, Interests, Position within firm,Looking for/interest/ideal partner, Recent photo, Ideal date/ activity
