Let me start off by saying that I hate dating!!!! Correction, I hate blind dates!!!! I met him at a restaurant/bar for a drink at 11:30 and I was home by 12:45. Yup, that's how good it was! Don't get me wrong,it wasn't BAD... Just not GREAT! I mentioned that he is a police officer, right? Well, let me just say that it appears that he has spent many an hour at the local donut shop! I don't mean to sound cruel, he has just gained a ton of weight since his last photos were taken (the ones he has posted on Match.com).

He was very nice. We had good conversation... but he is a widow and still wears his wedding ring. I found that to be a little bit unsettling to be on a date with someone that is wearing a wedding band. I think it is incredibly sweet and loyal of him, BUT I think that if I were going to meet someone new, I'd probably take it off for a couple of hours. What do you guys think?

That coupled with the weight thing, really threw me for a loop.

Oh well... I tried...

TC...well we both had boring Match.com dates...sorry...at least my guy resembled his photos, except when I got back home I realized how far away they had been taken....LOL...

Oh well...we both got out of the house and we talked to someone. That was nice. So we just call it a dress rehearsal!!

Sadie, I'm glad that you are getting out too. It does help, doesn't it?

I've been on 3 match.com dates within the last 2 months. They have all been duds, but it makes me feel good that I am the one who decides there is no chemistry. They have all wanted to see me again. It is a good boost to my wounded ego to know that I AM desirable to someone. That men find me to be a great catch... and my ex is the one who is losing out, not me!

I'm not completely over him yet... not by a long shot. I'm just doing the match.com thing to FORCE myself to move on. I figure that I should at least put myself out there because you never know! What's the alternative? Sitting and pining for someone who has broken my heart (more than once)? No. I can't let that be an option anymore!

I'm taking baby steps as I see you are as well...

Good for you. We'll get there, my friend!

TC

TC66,

I can relate. I also tried Match.com a couple of years ago with no luck.

I went on two dates. One was a very nice born again Christian (no offense, but no thank you), who quoted the bible all night and the other one was a gigantic dweeb with the worse case of hallitosis I've ever encountered. And as if that was not enough he asked me no less that 6 times in 2 hours....."so, how do think it's going.....do you think you'll want to see me again?" At first, I was polite....."Well, we only met 10 min. ago, but so far, so good." "Well, you seem really nice....but....."......."Um, probably not but it was nice meeting you." CALGON TAKE ME AWAY!!!!!!

Good grief!!!!!

Lolli

TC...yes, it is wonderful to feel desirable again. No kidding...even though my date was not what I had been hoping for...(but then again, who knows what I want right now, I too am still in love with EX) but the man did ask me out again...so I must have done okay!!

I've found that in the past week...there must be something about me...I must be coming out of my shell...I've been getting approached constantly. It's a wonderful feeling...especially when the one that we loved turned their backs on us. The self-esteem was so low...but now I feel like I can hold my head up high again. I'm not that bad after all.

Are you winking at them first or how are you doing this? I've been nice and responded to everyone.

Sadie,

You are much better than me! I don't respond to everyone...only the ones I am interested in. I feel a little bit rude about it, but (not to be conceited), I do get a ton of winks and e-mails and I don't have the time to respond to every one. O.K. That sounded worse than I meant it! What I mean is that if you send them a kind "thanks, but no thanks" message... they tend to take it as a challenge instead of a rejection. Then, you're stuck going back and forth trying to soften the blow and not hurt their feelings. I think it's easier and kinder to just not respond at all. You know what I mean?

I don't do a heck of a lot with the service (mainly because I am still in love with the ex)... so I don't typically e-mail anyone, but sometimes, when I am bored, I will go through and find some "winkable" guys and see what happens. So far, not much!

I keep my Profile active just in case someone fantastic happens to be looking for me...they'll be able to find me!! Unfortunately, only the un-fantastic ones seem to be finding me. But, it's not hurting anything, so I'll just keep it up for a while...

TC

OMG, Lolli!!! I think we went out with the SAME guy!!! lol

I too went out with a guy, who constantly asked me all night how I thought things were going. He was nice, but obviously clingy, and there were no sparks for me. I couldn't WAIT for the night to be over. I thought if he asked me ONE MORE TIME how I thought things were going, I was gonna have to hurt his feelings:)

Geesh! That's why I HATE the dating game. If you go out with somebody, I think you know within the first 15 minutes if there is any chemistry or not. And if not...well it'll be a looooooooong night! lol

Please is right!

It would be a long evening for us because we are socialized to be polite and suffer through it.

Men on the other hand are taught to look out for number one.

THAT must be nice.
