Glad things are going well Eccentric!
Thanks! And that was our first date too....a movie-date to see "The Book of Eli". Maybe that's a good sign.

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.

So his online personality wasn't quite as nice as his in person personality?

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

His online personality was better than his in person personality and physically I just wasn't attracted. His pictures on the website were obviously not recent. I don't know that I'll try again with him.

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.

It will probably depend on his response. I sent him an email last night saying thanks for dinner and kind of just some small talk and haven't heard back from him. He may not have been interested either. If he is then I'll let him know, otherwise I'll let it fade.
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.

In my experience men usually pay. They also usually preempt my offering to pay my share with "I've got it" as the check is coming. I of course make sure to thank them, but think no less of a guy who lets me pay my share.

You only need one guy you're into to be into you. And you are free to turn down perfectly acceptable men just because you don't find them appealing despite no flaws.

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.

you two are NOT A MATCH!!! next! guys with kids on match try to do that all the time. they have kids and see a girl that doesn't have kids but wants them and want to see if it would be possible that you could fall for them (knowing that you would want kids)....don't go there. it will blow up in your face. plus remember, if a person has that many kids and you have none, it will really alter the dynamics of any relationship you two could have. you're a young girl, i'd say pass and don't engage with that guy.

Oh, I wasn't, don't worry!!! Just surprised he'd message me, since I clearly write that I definitely want to have kids.

Well...you did say you wanted kids... and maybe he thought his three kids would be enough for you, so you wouldn't want to actually birth any kids.

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...

I was being sarcastic. I do wonder if that is what he thought...that he has enough kids for her and for him, so she really wouldn't mind not having any of her own.
