**December** Dating Thread: Updates and (Re)Introductions, please! - Page 15

post #281 of 288
Thanks to you ladies for pushing me ever so gently to respond to this new guy! I did send him a message early this afternoon. He responded this evening. He seems very well spoken, can write in sentences and even paragraphs! Many of the men who have contacted me on there use one or two sentences at best!

He enjoys live music, films, renovating, has no tv! and best of all he didn't make any reference to my brood of kids! Many guys make somewhat snide remarks.
The other great thing, he can't wait to hear more about me

I replied to him a little while ago, may have wrote to much but hey, I think he can read and I am not going to loose his attention after the second sentence!

My other leads on the site have dried up, some by my choice.

For those who use OKC - is there a way to change settings so that I can be on the site without being available to chat/IM?

I'm not sure you can.

You can change your setting to browse anonymously, which would keep you from appearing on-line and un-message-able, but you wouldn't be able to see who viewed you either.

I tend to just delete and/or block the user from messaging me, depending on the guy. I have had a couple of decent and funny guys spark up interesting and respectful converations. The rest are just crazy, but entertaining and I enjoy telling them that and then proceeding to block them!

You can turn off the chat feature. It's somewhere hidden in the settings. Somewhere. I know because I have it turned off. But I can't for the life of me find it again.

Wow.... hahahaha, that cat pee story was amazingly funny. Sorry. Probably wasn't for you. Maybe he just wants to be friends and doesn't want it to get weird??

sugarmoon, that sounds great.

My dating life feels so blah. I'm trying to figure out how to "break off" things w/ Artsy P while still remaining friends since it's nice just spending time w/ him, in that way. I've never been very good at that. I really think he's just lonely, and maybe I am, too, and he's going through some medical issues right now and he doesn't want to go through them alone. So in a lot of ways I've cut him more slack than I normally would w/ someone.

Other than that all my prospects are just... boring. I get enough msgs and interest but I just don't feel like bothering. Maybe in the new year.

FOUND IT!!!

Go under Settings, click the IM tab at the top.

On the right-hand side, it states "IM is now on" Next to that, you can click "Turn it off", then save the setting.

SHPG just AMAZED me day before yesterday. We had a sudden unexpected snow storm and got 4-5 inches of snow in just a few hours, while I was at work. I walked home (cuz I've lived in SW Washington my whole life and do not know how to drive in snow). He called a little while later and I told him about walking home in the snow and how I'd have to walk back (I work a split shift) and I was very tired and so on. Mostly just whining and sniveling. Anyway, so I'm sitting here eating my dinner and he shows up. He comes in and says "I couldn't bear to let you walk all the way back to work and then back home again. I'll drive you up there and then come get you when you're off and we'll go get your car in the morning." He came to rescue me from the evil snow. Soooo sweet. He's from Minnesota so a few inches of snow is nothing to him.

We went and got an ultrasound and thankfully, despite a crazy high beta that made us all worry about twins, there is only one babe in there with a lovely little heartbeat. He came with me and held my hand and met my doctor and everything. He's totally on my good list.
