Sorry it has been so long since I last posted. This computer is so slow that it really makes it difficult to visit other blog posts as it takes forever for pages to download and then it often freezes. I will be so glad when I will be able to get the old computer fixed or get another one.
And believe it or not, but I'd never though I would say this, but sometimes I just get sick of the internet! There have even been days that I didn't log on to anything but my daily cartoon and my mail. I haven't even been to Blogspot or Facebook in days.
But I digress...this post is about dating! And for the first time in a year and a half, I actually had a date!
I had a nice time. He drove over two hours from up near Detroit to come see me. We went out to lunch at a local restaurant and then hung out at the local riverfront park and walked along the river. Yes, he even kissed me and we actually held hands! We agreed to meet again in two weeks. Well that was the plan. This week he messaged me and said that he is not sure he is "ready to meet again until a couple more weeks." Whatever that means. I am now doubting that there is going to be a second date. Oh well. That is par for the course now and then when you date. We shall see. I'm not going to post his pic, because at this point, I have too much respect to do that.
Anyhow, I get asked all the time why I don't date more. The answer is simply that I am not being asked. People tell me they are surprised and men that I talk to online say that they can't believe I am not in a relationship. I think I can shed a little light on part of that.
For one, whatever happened to a man taking a woman out on a date simply for the pleasure of her company? Too many of the men who say they would like to meet me have "conditions" if they agree to meet up.
(Update: 1/12/13 - I deleted some of this post's content. This really has no part in my life any more.)
There really are some nice guys out there. I still keep in contact with the man I met in Dallas a year and a half ago. He admits that if we lived closer, we would probably be a couple. *Sigh* There is also another man that has talked to me for several years, but we have never managed to meet due to him living in various locations far across the country, and at one point, across the ocean. I also talk to another man who has been attending med school and working, so we have never had the chance to meet.
Despite all of this, I remain optimistic. I really do think that the right guy is out there somewhere.
And if you know of any great single men, send them my way!
