Photos: Britain's Vainest Man has Spent over N25m Just on his Looks

Personal trainer, Matt Dunford, proudly describes himself as 'Britain's vainest man', says he began his grooming regime aged 19, and has spent £100,000 on looking good. Dunford takes an hour to get ready for a night out, he once spent seven hours just preening himself.
And according to him, his hard work has paid off - he has never been turned down by a woman, has slept with more than 50 women, been on over 100 dates and has to fend off hordes of potential dates every time he goes out!
Here's what Dunford to Mailonline:
'I'm Britain's vainest man and I'm proud of it. Some people think I'm arrogant and I've had men start fights with me on nights out - but they're just jealous. There's nothing wrong with wanting to look good. I have been gifted with good genes and it's meant I've never suffered with self-confidence issues. 
Sometimes I'm out and I just want to have a quiet night and I'll be hounded by women

Blog Reader is about to Give Up on Her Decision to Stay a Virgin till She gets Married, Needs Your Advice..

Good day Laila,  
I'm a young lady, 25 years old. Growing a good relationship has been a daunting challenge for me, it just won't last. Sometimes my fellow ladies take him from me or lack of sex causes our separation even after letting him know from the beginning that I am totally for a no sex before marriage relationship. At first they would accept only to walk out when I have fallen in love.  
Some of these men have been good to me but sex is the only barrier. Some said I'm too rigid. I have really worked on my character because at some point I thought I was lacking some good morals.
My friends always advice me that sex keeps relationship going. But I want to know, can't one have a healthy relationship without sex? As a virgin, if I desire for a man's affection, is it wrong?  
Please help me post this, I really need advice from my fellow readers because I'm heart broken now. I'm beginning to have a rethink on my determination.
