A rare plea from me…

I hate asking for support. I’ve always been proud to the point of being stubborn, and it’s caused me no end of trouble over the years. My sister goes on at me about getting a cleaner, for example (she has one as, despite only working one day a week, having two primary age boys means she couldn’t possibly manage to keep her house clean all by herself), but I’m a believer that I’m a grown-ass man who should be able to clean his own toilets and mop his own floors.

Almost all the time I manage to cope, but now I’ve got an opportunity that means I need help – your help – to make the most of it. Little old me has been nominated in the dating category for the UK Blog Awards. I know, right?! But I double checked and it’s apparently not a mistake after all.

A decent chunk of the vote comes from judges, who are all handsome/ beautiful/ witty/ intelligent/ near-legendary beings (should any of them be reading this), but the rest is done by public votes. And that, dear reader, is where you come in.

I’m not naive. I know that I am up against blogging behemoths, from incredible unlucky giraffe-women to other dating dads who make my scribblings look like the incoherent ramblings of a fevered child (which they are), and many, many more, but that’s not going to stop me imploring you to spare a thought for little-old-me.

I’d love to go along to the awards do next year, as much as an excuse to wear a wicked purple suit I have and a pair of spats as for the chance to use my “I’m so happy for you” face as one of my contemporaries goes up on stage to collect their gong.

If you get a second, just head over to https://blogawardsuk.co.uk/blog_award_category/dating/ and click on the little heart next to my name. Or next to someone else’s name I suppose, I guess I’ll never know either way. But Father Christmas will know, so do the right thing.

All I can assure you is that if I do actually make it along to the awards dinner I promise to drink too much, make a fool of myself and then get annoyed with myself for not speaking to any one of the other almost-certainly stunning single women who will be there too in all their finery. There might even be photos to share too.

Go on – vote early and vote often!
