Another Look At First Love.

Note: As always, you can follow my journey on my personal blog, So about what I said... If you’ve been following my self-induced saga over Crush Boy, you probably think I’m so sort of looney love-struck teenager. If you haven’t been privy to this story, allow me to catch you up… Cliff Notes: Been in love, from afar of course, with Crush Boy for 13+ years, wrote things in my diary like "I can see myself spending the rest of my life with him" and "I KNOW he's my soulmate......" blah, blah, blah. Could never work up the courage to pour my feelings at his feet. Finally got to a point where I was pretty sure nothing would ever happen between us (It's a complicated situation, too). I see him one day over the weekend. He sees me. Me very confused AGAIN. I am 28, right? And I am a full-grown woman with a job AND a college degree, right?

Friday Night's Date

Friday Night's Date

I went out on my first date with this guy that I connected with via Match.comon Friday night. It was one of the best dates that I've been on in a long time. We went to dinner at Olive Garden and we talked and talked. We laughed. The conversation was good. We went bowling and we laughed. He seems to be an interesting character. The late night walk around the park was a romantic way to cap off the night. I truly enjoyed my time with him. He wanted to come home with m, but of course, I wouldn't allow that to happen. I'm not bringing any man into my space until I'm confident he is going to be around for awhile. None of these fly by night, game playing, men. I don't think he was like that, but a man will be a man. I don't know when I will get to see him again because we live an hour apart, and both of us have extremely busy lives,but I like that. I don't have to worry about being pressured to see him again soon. I'm hoping for absence to keep him interested.

Goodbye, Dating Rules...

Note: Don't forget to follow my journey on my personal blog, So about what I said... I came across a set of dating rules for woment as I was perusing other blogs and felt that these rules needed sharing -- with my own opinions added, of course. Pffft. Rules smules. Rules are made to be broken, right? Remember: Breaking rules is the new IT trend. So 2010. As a side note: I’ve always been against rules, in case you haven’t noticed that by now. I’ve never been one to conform, to settle for the status quo. Standing out is far more interesting. I want to be the girl in the crowd who everyone is pointing to and saying, “Who is that girl?” in hushed whispers as I sashay past (well, as much as I can sashay in my wheelchair, but you get the point). I want to be somebody, not just anybody. I want to be Blair Walfdorf without the witch factor.

New Territory

New Territory

I am venturing into a totally new territory for me. I've been divorced for 12 years. He was the Love of my life and i felt that i had given him all my Love. so, therefore haven't been very interested in any relationships, as such. but now, i think that a great friend with same interests would maybe be nice. we shall see. at 59 years of age i decided that i wasn't dead. maybe there is someone (male) out there that would enjoy the same things i do. i am a great cook. i am starting a new business with gourmet candies and my speciaties 'home made pies" that are to die for. i am an artist. i am an original farm female but for now am living in the city. i enjoy traveling, being with friends and family, square dancing, going to the movies and anything else that sounds like fun. i hate having my picture taken, always have. after having surgery i have put on about 50 extra pounds, so i really avoid a camera . yes, i would like to lose the weight, but-- been there, done that and still didn't get the tee shirt - got a divorce. I Love to laugh at my self or at others.
