Gumtree - Desperately seeking .......

Has anyone used this? more to the point - has anyone found the person they were looking for by going down this route?
Wanting to find someone I know bits about and was hoping to meet up with again but job seems to be getting in the way. Dont want to freak him out tho by appearing to be a major psycho stalker.
Advice appreciated


i think it depends how u word the request.

Put it this way if i saw one of my friends names on there i would certainly contact them, either to laugh if you sounded like a crazy pathetic stalker, or simply to tell them someone was seeking them if you seemed normal and approachable and had a good reason for seeking them!!

Go for it, but word it carefully!!

He lives in north london and hes mid 40's and in quite a serious profession so I think its less likely for him to look as
a. london's a big place
b. he's older
and c. the job he does

Is he not on Facebook or Myspace ?

cant find him on myspace - not on facebook so can only see front page of results. working with limited resourses as not sure of surname although reasonable confident as ive searched the professional register for him with the details of what i know

but youre not a stalker...

yeah I know what it sounds like.
I'm not - just got some good signs and some promising ones too but we didnt exchange numbers. it was looking like he would be back to the same place again but now its likely that they wont book him again. Im gutted. Seemed a really nice bloke - knowing my luck he was just flirting and it was all bull!!! or gay or married or something equally disappointing - but he did seem lovely
still i guess it means he is fantasy material for a while

at least if i dont have contact with him again I cant find out that he really isnt interested and never was!

A lesson to be learned,, seize the day!
