Perhaps Richard is just your type?
Poet, educator, inspiration, sex god, Richard, 30 from London, tells us how he’s preparing for his solo tour to Canada and why he’d like a woman like Angela Carter but usually ends up with the Sylvia Plaths.

Kelly Brook lookalike, Natasha, is a (nearly) 25 year-old librarian from Whitechapel with a penchant for older Hungarian men.
Or. how about Digby?
A 24-year-old writer from unfashionable West London who enjoys walking, tinned food and pseudo-intellectual pop music.
Admittedly it’s a bit tricky to meet up with either Richard, Digby or Natasha being stuck away down here in the Antipodes, so the relationship section of the Library may well have to suffice for ideas and tips about how to find “the one”.
