A Request ................ A Tough Request!

There is a movie about what I am going to write about now, if I could remember the movie, t’would be great! Hang on......... let me see if I can “Google” it! Yeah, it is called a Wedding Date! LOL!!

Late in June this year, my eldest daughter is getting married and I would like to bring a date with me. So what’s the challenge here? Well................... and trust me, I never thought I’d request this, not in my life time............ The truth is, I don’t have a date for this wedding and I would like one.

So being ever so brave, I am putting it out there, ARE there any single available men, my age, 51, who would enjoy accompanying me to my daughter’s wedding on the 28th June 2013?

You can email me here from my blog, but to make it easy for you, my email address is

I stress, you must be Single, VERY Separated or Divorced with no hidden lady on the side, please, my need.

Oh please be from Ireland, if possible. It just makes the logistics easier. But I am open to real honest offers.

Thanking you and me, for being so utterly courageous!

25th April 2013

I would like to say, that a number of weeks ago, I made the decision, not to bring a date to my daughters wedding, which is now 9 weeks away. My reasons? Well, any date would be at a loose end for at least half the day, as I'll be busy with the bride, guests etc. That would not be fair to the date. Then I got to thinking about the photographs and thought, they'll always be in the photographs.........Suppose I wouldn't like that?!?
So I decided it was best to go to the wedding alone.

Thank you to those of you who replied to this. I deeply appreciate you and your courage. :)



  1. Fabulous that your daughter is getting married in June. I hope you fnd yourself a dream date in time :-)

    xx Jazzy

  2. :)) Time tells all Jazzy.
    Thank you so much for your comment x

    PS Will let you know ;)

  3. Well done Trich,
    I too have a Daughter getting hitched in November this year.
    In another life it would be an absolute pleasure and an honour to accompany such a great soul to the marriage of her daughter, one of the most special days in your life, but alas I must decline to enter such a fabulous competition as my better half would, very expediently, despatch me to the next world.
    Have a great day and a great journey getting there, love every moment of it.

  4. :)) Many thanks Austin and have a wonderful day walking your daughter down the aisle in November.

  5. Love your honesty Trich, let the queuing begin...

  6. Wrong country and, for you, wrong gender; otherwise, I would have been delighted. Remember, that while it would be great to have a date, you are complete and amazing all on your tod! Best wishes.

  7. Gillian, Thank you. I agree, I will be fine on my tod. Normally I am complete on my own, however, in this new Territory I think I would enjoy a date ;) Thank you for taking the time to read my blog x

  8. That's brilliant that you have a wedding in the family congratulations to your daughter, and to you! And such a fab idea asking for a date on the blog *takes notes* - I hope to hear how you get on, if it works I may do something similar myself one day :)

  9. Hi C, I'll let you know how I get on, re the date and the wedding ;) Without giving the date's identity away. Thank you for posting :)
