Love Your Lothario

Mr London Street tells an engaging tale involving his two best friends from University, Dave and Eric - they were, he says, "a study in contrasts."

Eric was 'regular and unadventurous', who "worked hard, got brilliant results, was a steadfast and loyal friend and if you had taken him home to meet your parents they would have enthused wholeheartedly."

On the other hand Dave "went through the attractive (and less attractive) female acquaintances of friends in much the same way that haemophilia went through the royal families of Europe in the nineteenth century."

As soon as Dave met Eric's younger sister it was all bound to end badly, but you'll have to read part 1 and part 2 of 'The Marriott Incident' to find out exactly how.

Meanwhile Tim Liew watches his son Zac at a toddlers sports day and discovers an 'incorrigible flirt' who 'knows how to turn it on for the ladies' with 'a smile and a twinkle in his eye' - whether they are a 2-year old girl or a 70-year old granny!

Oranjepan asks:
Should someone offer a warning, or is it wiser to just let things run their own course - how soon can you tell when they're going to be a real Casanova?
