Yes, please some recs. I don't like the action-thriller type (Ludlum, Grisham) - works for movies, but not so good for reading - although for some reason I find Cussler an OK sort of tosh
Anything LeCarre-like out there? They're my favs.

can you be established if you are old and still single?
i think this is that thing women have about being protected and provided for. hard to feel that way if they are shelling out for the bloke. some of it might be snobbery, and perhaps a little bit of it suspicion of...
jean is slimmer through the calf than the thigh, which is not good. maybe size-down so it's more fitting up top? or try some other brands - plenty of high st jeans like that you could try. not sure the higher rise is necessarily the answer, nor sizing up. make sure they're not loose around the hips when you buy, otherwise the flare will come...
