April is here and the sun has finally started to pump out some warmth from its glowing mass. We all know that a clear sunny day in December or January is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard; the heat is so pathetic from the low-lying sun and any heat generated from the day (and there’s not much of that in winter) is quickly absorbed through the clear skies. Thus, the day is penetratingly cold and the sun becomes little more than a hazard for drivers trying to drive home in a westerly direction.
However, by the time we get to April, things have started to change. The clocks have sprung forward and we are officially in British Summer Time (BST) or GMT + 1. The sun (when it does come out) actually feels like it has some heat on it. The evenings are much lighter and we can go out for a stroll right up until gone 8 p.m. in the capital.
The best thing about April in London is that we start to feel a little like mixing it up with the opposite sex. For many Londoners and lonely men just outside the capital, these days can be frustrating as much as they are exciting. Now, it might be all well and good feeling the urge to flirt and mix with a significant other, but for the millions of men who do not have a regular partner, these days might as well be as dark as the ones that grace us during January and February.
Not having a girlfriend, partner, wife or lover at your side when you are really feeling like some female companionship can be like going without food when you’re starving. It hurts, it frustrates and it can be a thing that lowers our self-esteem and often brings about depression or a low ebb.
It is also not that easy to simply go out and address the situation by finding a bar full of single girls and hoping your luck might be in either. All too often, a man “on the hunt” is viewed as a predatory snide by many single London girls. It is far better to concede that unless you are George Clooney or Brad Pitt you would be better off not trying to talk to that pretty, glasses-wearing commuter with the long dress or that hot chick with the big bust, hot blonde locks and a good book in her hands as she sits in the pub by herself. You would be better off hiring an escort as that way you win every time.
