Turns out one thread had some information that would have been useful at a get-together two weekends ago. :-(
It was a discussion of Tolerable Frogs. ( Which apparently are those blokes who will never be a Prince Charming, but are a much better 'catch' than most blokes or something like that anyway. )
I could have asked the people at the get-together if I was in that category.
Not that I've got low self-confidence or anything. :-))
