The Official Online Dating Diaries Thread

In my age group there are slim pickings. I am spending most of my time turning them down. Tonight one guy said he loved my hair. I really wish I could have loved him.

I remember once when I was still married & we were at a neighborhood party. The host was introducing people around & when he came to me he said & this is the Joan Collins of the neighborhood. I always wondered if he knew I was bopping his son. I also get the young Priscilla Presley & my boss thinks I look like Nicole Kidman if I had red hair. I guess I look like a lot of women, but there's only one of me.

I have another pic. I will put that in my avator & see if you all have the same reaction. It's actually a more recent pic.

Gstring,

I like the new picture and looks a bit like Linda Ronstadt. I guess you look like a lot of other pretty brunettes

The online thing is kind of tiring and too much work. I go up and down on it. Probably will start talking to men and meeting up for coffee within the next 2 months. If there are any truly notable stories, I will share

I got a wink tonite from a 34 yr old hispanic male with tattoos. He is out of state but will be moving here soon. He is 5'4" tall. He started his email with Hi, Precious. There are 2 men that look interesting & they both winked at me, but neither are giving out their #s or trying to set up a meet date. I'm only doing this for a month, so they had better get on the ball.

I woke up & couldn't go to sleep, so I checked my email. This one guy I had been emailing back & forth with just asked me if when I was young & after the festivities did I then have a booty call for the real festivities. WTH! I emailed back & asked him if he was asking if I had sex with strangers. What a weird question. I'll be interested to hear his answer. I have the feeling I won't be going out with him.

So, I haven't posted, because I've been having some mixed emotions.

The date went well and we both enjoyed the concert. When I emailed him to say thank you, he said that he was looking forward to our pets' playdate, but didn't actually ask us to join them anywhere which I thought was weird. I don't know what to say.

Now for the mixed emotions...I came home crying. The whole time I was at the concert, I was thinking about my ex-boyfriend. We haven't been together in years, but we hooked up when I was home at the end of June. I can't help it. There's just something between us that I can't explain. I know we're not right for each other, but I'm afraid I'll never have that connection again with somebody else. I seriously thought we were going to get married before things fell apart. Even my mom loved him and was excited that we were spending time together when I was home.
Ooooooo......cool thread.

I have a "date" this Sunday. He's very nice looking(and tall....all the guys I've gone out with have been my height, lol), and we actually have really good conversation. He's new to the area(moved from Houston), and works for a local independent label.

I think we'll have a good time. He's sarcastic like me, which means he knows how to NOT take himself too seriously.

And did I mentioned he's nice looking? LOL!

I'll post details tomorrow after our date.

I've sorta lucked in the online dating thing, with the exception of encountering one flaky douche, but even the ones that I didn't feel a connection with are still cool people.

I am not doing the online thing so I am not sure if I will be disqualified from playing...

Anyway, I have been dating a lot for fun. There is one guy that I have a strong connection with. We have been dating all summer. We always have fun and there is a lot of chemistry. Both of us know each other are dating other people. Last night I told him how I felt about him. He told me that he was too unstable and would end up hurting me. Then added that I should continue to date more and we should be friends for now.

I have enough friends.

I appreciate the honesty, but damn, that sucks. He always made the first move so I thought he was interested. I hate putting myself out there. Now I remember why I usually wait for the guy to share his feelings first.

It stings because not in my whole years of dating have I had such a connection with someone. I will get over it because I know there are other men out there that I will share the connection with. It hurts all the same.

Sometimes I hate dating in NYC. Dating here seems much more complicated than other cities I lived in.

See, I have zero baggage. My dating history is so freaking distant at this point, I cannot remember any of it!

Seriously, of course I have some, but I'm sooooooooo freaking ready for a relationship. For real.

But the guys I seem to date, they need a porter to lug around all that crap they're lugging.

Can't win.

About your ex...I find that until you find someone else, you never really move on.
Sorry about that.

Ended up going out a day earlier since he had some other obligations that came up.

We played pool and talked, and just continued getting to know each other better. He's WAY more handsome in person than in pictures, and has the most gorgeous smile and eyes. And was a gentleman.

But, I ended up getting sick and had to bring the date to a close earlier than I would have liked. Had vertigo(bad timing, man....BAD timing, lol) and standing/sitting up became a problem but he helped me into the house and made sure I was okay before he left.

Considering I didn't cap the evening off how I would have liked, I had a great time. And I just spoke to him(said he enjoyed himself as well) and we're going to set something up for another day soon.

I had all three of my dates this weekend!

Saturday coffee- he was pretty cool. We talked and walked around for almost 3 hours. He is very different from me personality-wise. I doubt we will go out again but he wrote a nice testimonial on my page!

Saturday dinner- nice guy. Very easy to talk to...he has ALOT of bagage and is actually on probation. So...not too sure if we will go out again, Im still deciding if I had sparks with him or if he was just a cool guy to hang out with!

Saturday drinks- after dinner date my roommate and I went downtown to watch Phelps win his 8th medal. So I called up the guy I was supposed to meet Sunday for coffee because I knew he lived downtown and he came out with a freind. We all walked around and bar-hopped and hung out. I didnt drink because I was driving but we all got along and he was HOT!! He is from Poland and is just my type in every aspect He gave me a nice hug and a kiss at the end of the night and we went on our ways. Its funny though because my new apartment is literally down the street from his. So we are going to be neighbors! We talked yesterday but have not made plans to meet again...so I shall just wait and see

So...1 out of 3 isnt bad!! Maybe it is all a numbers game. I was so less stressed on all the dates because I knew I had 2 others to compare them to.
"Someday love will find you...break those chains that bind you!!"
