John met his songwriting partner, Bernie Taupin, in 1967, after they had both answered an advert for songwriters.
For two years they wrote songs for other artists, including Lulu, and John also worked as a session musician for artists such as the Hollies and the Scaffold. In 1970 a single, "Your Song", from his second album, Elton John, reached the top ten in the UK and the US, his first hit single.
I am ready to meet someone special but How/where can I find how to meet like minded woman? Just would like to meet up with mums for a chat/coffee but its been so long since I've met up with anyone (other than friends) during the DAY never mind at night!!!!! Generally people are supportive on Netmums so please feel relaxed and join us.
He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, is an inductee into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and is a fellow of the British Academy of Songwriters, Composers and Authors. I am a single mum of one and have recently, accepted that I am bisexual.I have came out to a few friends and my sister (who are very supportive). Look, basically what I'm saying is never ask this question if you want to make it out of the room alive. You wouldn't believe the sheer amount of calendars, rotas, flowcharts, and 18-month development roadmaps you have to keep on top of in order to work out whether you fancy a person when you meet them. At no point does it involve sitting on the sofa alone on a Friday night, eating Doritos, watching Save the Last Dance 2 and crying. Bisexual people are so greedy they have, in fact, kidnapped all of the hot single people in the world, and are keeping them stored away in a big underground dating cave so that nobody else can have a relationship ever again. It is a mysterious landscape of dark, unknowable depths and unexplored, cloud-shrouded heights. (Mostly included this one just as an excuse to use this picture, which is one of the first results you get if you search a stock image library for "bisexuality," and might be the most hilariously awkward stock picture ever created.) Well, yes. it's like you've gone through your whole life knowing that there are only two flavours of milkshake, chocolate and strawberry, and then one day someone gives you a banana milkshake and instead of going, "Oh, nice," you spend a whole evening complaining that it doesn't taste like chocolate or strawberry. The heart is a fragile instrument upon which we fumblingly try to pluck out a melody amid the discord of our lives. That said, whether or not you're sexually attracted to someone comes some way down the list, below macroeconomics, quantum electrodynamics, tax law, making CSS work in IE6, and what "bleeding a radiator" actually involves. My problem is that I have been single for a few years now and dont get the chance to go out.I know that my sexuality is not accepted very well by gay/straight people, lots of people have strong views and opinions about it, so you can understand that I am cautious and not shouting it from the rooftops!!! lol Thanks for the advice Vicki, have given it a try already lol but are there many mums like us on this site? Or is best to keep our related chats to the other site!!! Hello Mhairi, Welcome to Netmums As Lisa said, there is a group here: https:// Netmums which I think has great community support. Sometimes, in different contexts, it's just less hassle if you present yourself in ways that people are familiar and comfortable with. Look, sometimes we might be inconsistent in how we describe ourselves.
