What chance do I have of 'hooking up' with
a member of the opposite sex?
Chances on hooking up? - Better than you would hope!
Of course I'm not going to make any
promises on your chances of 'pulling a chick (or floce, for you saffas)
what I will say however is that if you don't then you'll be the first
I've heard of. It really is amazing, just how successful you can be.
Don't think I'm promoting promiscuity or unsafe practices – I'm just –
as always – sharing my knowledge and telling it straight.
More than likely you will hook up with a workmate. You spend all day

I myself met my current partner of 5 years at the last pub I worked
at. She was a chef and I was senior barman – we used to exchange food
for drinks (living on the edge we were). If it hadn't been for the
live-in environment we would not have met, so on reflection even though

better deal out of the situation? Me or the pub?

Either the pub or the country, and that kind of thing can be a bit of a
Of course here's hoping you continue
travelling after whatever visa you are on expires. There's always the
Republic of Ireland, working in the French Alps or perhaps becoming a
pub crawl guide in Rome.
As always when it comes to
mixing business with pleasure and hooking up with a colleague I implore
you to use caution! You don't want to make things uncomfortable for
yourself or anyone else at the pub. Do that and you can find yourself
unemployed and homeless rather quickly!– But hey you're an adult right?
You can make decisions for yourselves, so best of luck to you and at
all times whilst hooking up, practice safe sex.
