DECEMBER dating thread!!! - Page 4

post #61 of 190
Email exchanges are continuing with my main crush and my secondary crush. swoon.

Main crush sent me photos from his Ireland trip. Very cute, I must say.

Not that I'm superficial like that. Ohhh NOOOOOO. :

Main crush guy does similar work to me, so we have a lot in common, it's like talking to someone in my world, so comfortable. Secondary crush guy is in film, has no kids, and loves to travel--I can't imagine our lifestyles meshing. But hey, we'll see.

When did he go to Ireland? I was just there last month - what if he was on my tour?

That's so funny! He was there in Aug with his teenage daughter. They seem to have a great relationship.

I am jealous that you have been there!

Need opinions please:

Because J and I live an hour and a half apart we don't get to see each other very often. He doesn't have his daughter tonight (which is rare because he has sole custody), and has to come to my town today. He wants to see me and stay the night. I'm really excited at the possibility of spending time with him, but I have a small dilemma: Her name's Aria, my beautiful 2 1/2 year old, and this is my weekend to have her. I feel like it will be fine as long as we don't show any affection in front of her. Plus, he would have to sleep on the couch. Aria has met most of male friends and is used to them being around, so I'm not sure how she'd react.

What are your thoughts, chicas?

I think it is fine as long as you have boundaries when DD is around It sounds exciting. You deserve happiness after all you've been through

I would totally do it. Just stay with yourself, if you know what I mean. Observe and proceed with care. But have fun!!

I can't believe this

Remember the guy who contacted me by email and I liked him, but he just stopped emailing me cold? Well, he just emailed me The thing is, I don't care so much anymore, my coffee date guy has been on my mind, and while I will keep pursuing other options until things become more clear, I find myself mainly thinking abut D

The dinner date guy has contacted me a few times and I am answering him, I am just not engaging him in much conversation. I will eventually have to tell him.

So, the count is

K= yucky dinner date
D= nice, comfortable, connected coffeedate
J= the one I talked to on the phone for 2 hours, and more since then
N=cute, zen dude who likes deep, philosophical conversation (who stopped emailing me.

I lean towards D...we will soon see

Quick! run inside, it's pouring !!!!

Okay ladies, I took a loooooong nature walk with my main crush today and his two teenagers and my oldest (9). It was a really relaxed and fun walk, and our interests in nature really complemented each other.

I blushed AS I KNEW I WOULD when I first met him, it's just a self-conscious moment. Does that get better with experience meeting new internet friends??

Anyway... I liked him.

He was soooo sweet with his autistic son. So loving and attentive.

Hope he likes me, too.

That is so exciting I tend to be shy meeting new internet friends if like them, though, if I don't care one way or the other, I am relaxed and confident. I just don't care. I think the nervousness is a good sign.

So my date went...two very enthusiastic thumbs up, fine holiday fun!

I get to the bar and grille and am so nervous that I finally start playing a game of cricket with some of my friends there. When he showed up, he came up behind me and surprised me with a hug. (Which was awesome, because my SIL kept freakin' me out making me think that he had no clue it was a date. Well, anyways, after darts I started dancing a little to some of the music that was playing, inspiring many other girls to dance, and got me and him singing to the musak. Then an old fling of mine came up and started flirting shamelessly with me, except I wasn't flirting back. My date leans over at one point and goes, "You know, I'm getting a little jealous of all these guys flirting on you...and I think I'm getting a little tired of it." I smiled and apologized and he said, "That's okay, I think I have a plan." Then leaned over and kissed me!

There was a bunch of kissing last night...nothing else though. (Just had one, don't need another thankyouverymuch. )

But anyways, we stayed up until roughly 3 in the morning having a good time and laughing.
And we're going out again soon!

It seems ideal to have more than one iron in the fire so you can come from a more discerning place.

Good for you!

Girl it's deluge!

I am so digging all these date night details. It's like having our own little 'Coffee Talk' in cyber-space land.

Yeah, so J came to visit, and we had a blast! Aria kept calling him, "Mommy's friend," which I think won him over. Seriously, how can you resist this? She kept saying, "Mommy's friend, come in my room and play please." *Sigh* He has such a sweet, calm demeanor towards children--total turn-on. When he left, Aria told me she missed my friend. She also kept saying that mommy missed mommy's friend too. Man I hope she doesn't share that with her daddy. :-/

It's amazing how sexy that can be isn't it?

OK, twist my arm; I'll divulge.

1. I am in a whole 'nother realm when I'm with him. I thought I knew about African American culture, but I had no idea. Just to hear him talk about his family, the way he adores the main women in his life, and his personal experiences leaves me feeling so, so fortunate.

2. It makes me weak in the knees by how much we have in common. I love sports, and we were watching a basketball game while debating on a player and where he should have transferred. He smiled so big and said, and I quote, "I can't believe it, my woman knows sports! How'd I get so lucky?"

3. I love the way my skin looks against his. It's breathtaking.

4. I love his hair and the way it feels in my hands (He left it unbraided just because I asked him to.), the strength of his body, how he's so humble about said body, his rough hands that speak volumes of a man who's dedicated to his family's business....I could go on, but I'll spare you.

On the drive back to his home today, he told me that he feels this connection between us that he's never felt with any other woman; like an energy that he couldn't describe. It's scary because I feel the same way. Oh, I am sooo digging him.

You know what happens when you meet a guy for coffee who tells you that he'd like to be friends but he's not interested in a relationship with someone who is pregnant due to drama he has experienced in the past with a single mom? You meet a really nice guy with great relationship potential! You meet someone who, for the first time in months, you can sit with for 3 hours and talk and laugh the entire time and feel totally comfortable with. Frustrating as hell but hopefully he meant the friendship part at least.

Just found out JD is being deployed to Afghanistan on January 18th. This sucks so bad, because I'm reeeeeaaallly liking him, and we've gotten pretty close over the past few weeks.
