    so have had a few beers again tonight, & am getting annyed again at my latest screw up so i thought i would moan off my tale of woe on yet another forum . So i was out in kings lynn Thursday night (a small town in norfolk England) on a work bonding thing, & i met this lovely girl there, 28 years old, single.

    spent most of the night dancing with her etc, & she gave me her mobile number. i dont know my own number (yes i know stupid!), so i promised to phonr her, however i must have wrote the number down wrong. i *think* its 1 digit short problem is i was pretty drunk when writing it down.
    Now i dont think this was a deliberate attempt on her part as we spent most of the night together after that (platonically)


    i am 75 miles away so its not even like i will meet her again by chance.

    i am so ******ed of, this girl is fab, & i fookin wrote her number down wrong

    i have sent around 100 text messages today in the hope that i can try every combination of her number with the missing digit, no result as yet
    M.

    Have to say, wot a plonker ..but, Mike, I hope you find her..... maybe this could be the start of a UK film... Seriously though, in the past I've gone to desperate lengths (I'm gay so even more restraints...!) why not put a small ad in the local press or if you're sure she liked you - find a way of becoming a local celeb by doing something outrageous... (there's no such thing as bad publicity... although I think Gary Glitter took it too far... :eek: )

    Listen dumbass. You think its a number short ...then guess the number ...try one after the other until you get the right one.

    Alternatively if you know any of her mates or friends of friends or aquaintances its not that difficult to track down some contact details. If she finds out you lost/missed her number she'll be all the more flattered that you took steps to find it.

    For example : where does she work...get their number phone them up ask for her ( I assume you know her name).

    Of course there is always the possibility that she gave you a fake number to get rid of you.....ha ha.

    As Mr. D said (without the dumbass bit), it shouldn't be too hard to track her down since she works for the same company. Just put it down as a priority for Monday morning. :)

    nooo she doesnt work at my place, i just met her in the pub, i only know her 1st name.

    i sent 80 text messages yesterday adding an exta digit.

    my next plan of attack is i know she works in a pub, her parents own it, & i know its in a 10 mile radious of kings lynn.

    a search on yell shows 69 pubs in the area. am guessing 1/3 of them will be in the vincinity of the town centre so can rule them out.

    Of course, when you get arrested for stalking, we will give evidence in your defence ;)

    I hate to be the one to tell you this, but some girls will invent a phone number to give guys, because they haven't got the heart to tell you "Thanks, but no thanks" :suicide:

    It would be rather dangerous I think to go down the route of searching all pubs in the area, stalking is against the law you know ;) She may even come to that pub again in the future so you may bump into her.

    Put an ad the the local paper.
    That what the personals used to be used for prior to the massage parlour/escort services took over.

    I've got a long memory.

    I guess from the tone of your post (and the fact that you're prepared to ridicule yourself in front of the entire AV Forum - you don't know your own phone number - what the fudge?), that you are most keen to meet this fine young lass again.

    You could try perservering with the text messaging, but that's likely to lead to financial ruin.

    Visiting every pub in the Kings Lynn area is an idea...but perhaps not a very healthy one. I live in these parts, and asking some burly landlord "Hey, you got a nice foxy looking 28-year-old daughter that I could see a picture of?" is sooner or later going to result in you spending an evening down at the local accident and emergency ward.

    If you really want to find this girl again, you gotta be more creative...in other words, think what you would do if you were in one of those cheesy Sandra Bullock movies.

    Do you know her first and last name? If you do, play the percentages and assume she went to school in the Kings Lynn area...and then try a name search on Friends Reunited. You know how old she is, so that should help narrow down any multple hits you get.

    If you don't know her name, then you gotta go with a flyer...get a picture of yourself, print a few dozen flyers and post them in the local pubs...but be prepared for further ridicule...and a few hundred crank calls.

    Otherwise try the Kings Lynn Gazette...or whatever it's called...they might just go with your story..."lonely heart seeks lost lost love" sort if thing. If it's a slow news day and you pitch it right, they might just bite.

    Hi,

    I feel sorry for you, for writing the number down wrong, but I would concur with others, about resorting to more sensible (and sensitive) methods!

    Try the local newspaper, or putting an advert in Private Eye or Time Out, or another similar magazine that gets national publication. At least, this way, you won't be seen as a total nutter! :)

    You were too drunk to write down the number properly?

    Beer goggles, mate! Thank your lucky stars! Nature's self-defence mechanism saved your ass - she was a munter anyway! :rotfl:
