Hi everyone. I like the 'intention' for this month- not tricking ourselves..hhmm, I need to work on that!
Mimim, sounds exciting! I love random 'synchronicitous' meetings like that...it's usually how i meet people actually - given up on the internet dating thing!
Butterflymom, that's amazing to hear CAAC is taking on board your input and willing to meet your kids... wow!
momanderson, it does sound like the Paramedic is 'romancing' you but I agree with Butterflymom, try to keep guarded if possible and let him prove he has changed...
doubledutch, hhmm, sounds like major potential, but yes, 3 months after separating, ouch... maybe it could be a slow burning thing.
The Accountant Guy I met weekend before last ended up cancelling coming down to see me last weekend because he realised that although he was 'completely attracted to me', he 'couldn't be reliable' and didn't want to 'mess me about' as he has only recently split up with someone
But 5 minutes after that conversation he was texting me saying he'd really like to come down and see me and was so tempted... he wanted me to contact him when I'm next in his city (in 10 days time)...and sent me nice texts about having loved cuddling up to me on the couch (when we met and ended up getting snuggly)...so he's pretty much left the ball in my court but I don't think I'm going to play, tempting as it is! He is cute and I'm v drawn to him but I think if he can't be bothered to come down and see me, but is happy to see me if I'm right in his neighbourhood, then he's not really worth it - actually pretty lazy really. Or just isn't really keen enough to bother.
But weirdly, my friend's housemate seems to interested in me at the moment - I also met him that same weekend and he was giving me 'vibes', and now he's been Facebooking me at least once a day, often very flirtatious comments etc (though respectful), showing a lot of interest in me, wanting to read my poetry etc. He's really nice and ticks a lot of boxes of what I'm looking for BUT - and these are big buts - he is 26 years my senior and (perhaps for that reason) I don't find him particularly attractive. Oh well.
Tonight at dance class I connected with a guy who (ages ago) had a fling with one of my friends and who I've bumped into now and then over the years. He's REALLY cute and also into a lot of the same stuff as me (and my age). He walked back with me from dance and we had a chat but big BAGGAGE ALERT - he has serious issues with his ex which was mainly what he chatted about. But he's clearly looking for a relationship... well it's nice to have possiblities but why are they are all so 'not right'! Sigh. I am feeling it would be so nice to have someone to cuddle up with...
