Sinead hoping nothing compares 2 recent dating site marriage

Well, she’s nothing if not persistent, that’s all I can say. Allegedly, Sinead O’Connor (for a whole eleven days last year Sinead Herridge), has announced on her own blog that, even after last year’s disastrous whirlwind romance with a guy she met on a dating site, she has joined PoF. And she’s making no secret of it, is the Irish starlet – you can access her profile under her user name VeryCareful1.

One would assume that dating site profile name has been chosen specifically after her 2011 stab at online dating which saw her marrying Barry Herridge after a short online relationship, then getting divorced two and a half weeks later. It does make you wonder if the two filled in the Chemistry section of the dating site, assuming that it was PoF they met on, of course.

If they did, something must have gone seriously wrong with the potion at elemental level for such a quick turnaround in affection. But she’s hoping for a little bit more of the old Luck o’ The Irish this time around, as it was announced on CBS that she’d come clean publicly rather than anyone think she’d gone discreet, shy and demure on us. What? That little lambkin?

This time around, Sinead is not limiting herself to the men in her native Ireland and the capital where she lives. From her quote, it seems as if being a ‘nice gentleman’ is what matters to the artist who was formerly at number one with Prince’s Nothing Compares 2 U. To be fair, after she ripped up the photo of His Holiness The Pope (John Paul II) live on television, it’s a wonder that any of the Dublin men would give her the time of day, let alone think of starting a relationship with someone possessive such a heathen streak.

Although, if she cannot find herself a single man on the dating site, she may have a little more luck with the married man of The Emerald Aisle. According to a report at the tail end of last year, Catholics top the naughty nookie poll. So a quick amble across O’Connell Bridge or Grafton Street and she should be on her way, if that’s what she’s in the market for.

Whatever it is she’s looking for, we wish her the best; we know what a shy, retiring character she is, so, we’ll leave that one there, with just a final thought:

if you were fanous, yet still wanted to have a crack at online dating, would you stick with your own name, or be totally discreet and make up a random user name? Answers on a postcard, please.

No Pope for newlyweds

We’ve all been there, haven’t we? Logged on to our dating sites, found tons of e-mails or private messages to open, casually checking the gravatar that helps you decide whether you like the look of the sender in the pop-up, only to find a toothy skin ‘ead staring back at you.

You don’t care that they claim to have once had a number one hit with a Prince song; when that dating profile catalogues three previous failed marriages, which has borne four children, and pops up next to a bare-shouldered, tattooed-arms snapshot, you’re reaching for the mouse to instinctively click the ‘delete’ button. You are hovering though, because that close-shaved scalp does have a sensational pair of eyes set beneath, but then you pan down to see another tattoo, as equally as morose as those on the arms, a depiction of Jesus embedded in the dating site hopeful’s chest. You can almost feel the index finger being drawn to the left click to send the request to date offline to the trash.

From that dark, sorrowful tattoo your eyes are instinctively drawn further down the dating site profile picture – your mind has already dismissed this possible candidate and is hoping against hope that the next e-mail is from someone a little less gruesome. So what your peepers take in next, from the very edge of peripheral vision, your brain cannot quite compute. In the panic of meltdown, you realise that this thrice-married dating site member who has deigned to approach you, with haircut cropped to the cranium, skin indecently incarcerated in ink…
…has a pair of female breasts! Nothing compares to this, you whisper under your breath. That’s when realisation dawns – Skin ‘ead O’Connor is asking you on a date. Aargh!

whisked away to white chapel

Well, for 38-year-old Barry Herridge, the history, the tats and the legendary hairstyle only encouraged him to reply to the Irish pop star’s dating site profile after she announced on her blog that she had become ‘sex-starved’.

Barry, who works in Ireland’s capital, Dublin, as an addiction therapist sent Sinead a ‘wonderful’ e-mail that not only changed her mind about marrying for a fourth time but managed to accomplish the feat within three months of meeting the Number One songstress.

The swift ceremony, held at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Nevada, was attended by only the bride, groom and a cameraman; in a two fingered salute to over-publicised weddings, the snapshot of the empty chapel bore the caption ‘celebrity guests at our wedding‘. Certainly not Okay, there, then.
