My date with the nice guy is tomorrow. We're going to dinner and to see Book of Eli. I've got my fingers crossed but am so worried that we're getting along so well that I won't be interested when I see him or he won't be interested in me. Guess we'll see.

Glad things are going well Eccentric!

i had a first date with someone last night.

he had been writing to me on PoF off and on for the entire 4 years i've been living here. mainly because we both have a love of trivia games. last year we had been chatting online and i sent him my phone number and said call me, we'll set up a time to play and see who the real champ is.

and i never heard from him again.



until last week.

when he asked i was ready to lose at trivia and this time he sent me HIS number.

so we set up our match for last night.

and he was funny and sweet and looked like his picture AND....

i wiped the floor with him!



he wants a rematch, too!

My date didn't go so well. Very nice guy, I was just not attracted at all.

Are you going to try a second date just to be sure it wasn't an off night?

Too bad he didn't post recent photos....
Are you going to tell him you aren't interested or just let it fade?

Hopefully, your next date will be better.

I keep saying that I need to focus on school and maybe that's where I need to leave it because I sure keep having this string of horrible dates.

well, i had another first date yesterday afternoon. the chemistry wasn't as good as with Friday's date, but i think i'll see him again because one can never have too many friends even if there's no romance.

Gonna be honest...getting those "thanks but no thanks" emails back to winks kinda make me feel bad.

It's not a judgment against you - just that you're not right for each other, and they're doing you the favor of not wasting your time.

Heard from a divorced man with three kids today, and his first message came-right out and asked if it freaked me out that he had kids...I told him no, that I quite love children...and he responded and went on and on and on...

However, his profile says that he wants to find somebody that DOES NOT want kids...guess he's being honest that he already has three kids, maybe doesn't want anymore/can't afford to take care of any more...but...it's kinda a dealbreaker for me.

don't entertain b.s. period, end of story....are you okay with someone that has 3 kids regardless of what they are or aren't willing to have? i have a one kid limit....if i had kids or didn't want kids that number might be different. a good piece of advice i've gotten...focus more on what you want in a guy than what they want in a girl...
