BUT, that being said, I'll just say...I didn't mind that the long weekend was miserable. I spent it inside while the kids were at Daddy's.

This dating thing doesn't suck nearly as much as I thought I would!
Yoohooooo! Definitely spill the details elsewhere, I'll live vicariously through you!

I KNOW!! Can you freakin' believe it? I was like 'Hon, please - give me another two weeks at least' Seriously, this guy is testosterone pesonified - he's like a caucasian Mr. T (shaved head and all...) Gah.

Well, I'm gonna bust it out Friday morning - cause if I get shut down, exdp is doing pick up Friday afternoon anyway, that'll give the weekend time to settle down. And if it's good news - well, you ladies'll be the first to know.

This thread TOTALLY puts a smile on my face!!

A question to you gals: Smart Computer Guy not only made moves to eat lunch the same time as I (though it could have been a coincidence) he also came upstairs at the 'normal' time (2.30pm) I guess to say hi. Unfortunately I was talking at the time and couldn't get away. I know he likes roller blading (I think he's quite good) and I do too. Do you think it would be too forward for me to ask him if he knows any good parks to go rollerblading in Montreal?
Kind of dropping a hint, but also a completely innocent question?

Both! It's a completely innocent question annnnd dropping a hint Plus, the upside: it spurs conversation, let's him know you have 'common' interests, and it's possible DATE material! Wooooo! lol

I don't think it would be too forward at all. Great conversation starter. Go for it!

I third the opinion that it's both, it's perfect, and GO FOR IT!

So...let us know how it goes

My dating life is non existent at the moment. I am open to it but there is really no one in sight! I guess I need to be concentrating on school anyway. I would just love a nice hot, juicy distraction though.

I am starting at a new school in June so hopefully there will be some datable people there. My current school is completely dry.

I think I am going to start dating finally. I was left 2 years ago this month, plus the divorce is final for 1.5 years now. I started back to work just a few months ago after being a SAHM for 3 years. It really helped me get back into the swing of things and now there are a couple of men at work that I could be into, we shall see!
post #168 of 244
Speaking of men at work....I have had various people tell me being interested in guys at work is dangerous. But I have no life other than my kids and work. So it's where my friends are and where I meet people.
So, smart computer guy is from my work!! But I don't work with him on a regular basis or anything.
post #169 of 244
Yeah, I don't think it is super healthy, but I only work and take care of my child. I'm not into going to bars etc. I really only meet men at work.

It has been very interesting reading this thread too by the way!

I just wanted to point this out to everyone here. There's a pretty good chance that your exes really are reading what you post. My xh AND my boyfriend have both admitted to reading my posts here ( to both of you if you are reading this one). Public forum, yk? Don't say anything you don't want the whole world to know.

Yeah. I admit that I'm an avid reader of this thread but I haven't posted for that very reason. All I can say is that things are going very well.

Am I the only one who doesn't give a flying flip if my ex knows that I date?

That'd be me! Considering mine was having other women call here the day after we decided to separate! The man finally came to his senses after I lost my mind, but I mean - if he's moved on that fast, what can I say? Annnnd, to top it all off.... my exdp called it YEARS ago that I'd be better off dating women. What does that say?

Although mimim I do appreciate the reminder - we do have faceb*ok for the better details! Of which I will have some - sooner than later hopefully!

Soooo, RainbowTurtle - what does very good entail?

Anyway, I do believe that someone noticed my very rainbow anklet today. One of the other daycare kids (a toddler) was like 'Pwetty bwacelet!' and I think someone's eyes just about came out of their head! lol So, it's on now. She's either thinking I have no idea what it means (the rainbow = pride) or she's curious. I'm gonna let her sit on it a bit! Oh! And I commented on her facebo*k last night... so we're getting there!!

Update!

I really apologize for monopolizing the thread the past few days!

Buuuuuut, I totally told a mutual friend that I have a super crush. In the way of good mutual friends, I imagine it will take 36 hours to get back to the person in question.

Even though I swore her to secrecy. Will update you on what happens from there.
post #176 of 244
This thread makes me soooo jealous....seriously, single mums can date? have sex again before the kids grow up? wow. Doesn't seem like that will ever happen to me but this thread gives me a tiny bit of hope....
post #177 of 244
beatee, welcome There is hope!

Ceinwen, you are totally not monopolizing! Ask that woman out!

Now!

(there, did that give you the confidence to just do it? :P)

That totally gave me the push! I'm just waiting to see what this mutual friend of ours thinks first... Not that I'll let it dictate what I'm going to do, but she knows this other woman a lot better than I do (they work together...) Ahhhhhhhh! I sincerely hope this wasn't a HUGE mistake. I've been walking around all night with my heart in my throat - this could go really badly for me; I haven't felt sick like this since I was, oh say - twelve years old! My exdp is in hysterics laughing at me; he says this is why he only does online dating - you can get right to the nitty gritty without dealing with all the drama.

Aiyiyi.... But isn't this all part of the fun? Ahhhh! This isn't fun! I'm going to go and self lubricate with some white russians... If you could all think good thoughts, or pray if you're the praying sort, or sacrifice a goat or something... I'll hit ya back when you need it.

sacrificing goats for lesbian love.....





Monopolize allll you want, darling, just keep saying ridiculous things like that to make me pee my pants.
post #180 of 244
Well I'm glad to at least provide comic relief!

In other news......

REJECTED. :

Can you freakin' believe it? This does not bode well for my future in dating.

The common friend wrote me back on faceb*ok and gave me a canned answer... here, I'll copy it verbatim, spelling errors and all:

Well all i can tell u is that right now jane is not looking. You ca try if you wan but i woud try obe fiends fir and ee where that goes. She is prety groovy!!! LOL I really do think she is an amazing person nd even if she wasn't interested she would love to be your friend!!

(Name changed to protect some privacy)

Oy vey. I'm absolutely itching here now; the last line makes it so apparent that she told her, it's not even funny.

'she would love to be your friend'

We weren't even dating and I got the FRIEND punishment!

Advice, commiseration? OMG!d, this is going down as the worst idea ever...
