It seems that when a single man from Sheffield decided to try his luck with the ladies on Mumsnet, he discovered that mothers might not be as desperate as he suspected.
Under the pseudonym of 'sheffieldguy', the 35-year-old ventured: "Am I the first guy to think of this angle?... Nothing ventured, nothing gained, as they say."
According to the Mail Online, the brave singleton described himself himself as a 'well-endowed and 'very attentive and confident lover’ on the look out for some NSA (no strings attached) fun.
However, his subsequent chat-up lines, as reported in Metro, clearly needed a little more polishing.
‘So if you’re bored sexually at home, or not getting any at all… drop me a private message. I’m happy to travel up to an hour or so from Sheffield.’
However, considering the responses he received, doubtless he'll be more carefully on his next visit to a parenting website.
The Mail Online reported that the 35-year-old wasn't short of heated responses, as women piled in to ridicule the careless casanova.
Replies included: "I bet your inbox is ON FIRE." and ‘Have to admire that level optimism!!’
