View Full Version : Popping in to say HI!

February 8th, 2017, 04:18 PM
Hi Everyone...

I'm sooo sorry I've been absent but I'm sorry to say it will probably be a bit longer. Life is incredibly crazy!!

Work is extremely busy and now I have picked up a part time job AND I am taking two university courses which is just a stupid thing to do on top of everything else! LOL! But I am persevering!

AND today, for the first time in 20 years....I am going on a first date! So that's a huge step for me! Wish me luck!

I just wanted to say thank you so much for all the support you all have given me over the last two years. While I'm not completely over the hump, but I am definitely on the way. So while life is busy, I am doing much better.

I think of you all often (and worry too!) so I sure hope everyone is well. Sending love and hugs to everyone as usual. Miss you all!! xoxo

Big shout out to any new members....you have come to an absolutely amazing place with some of the kindest people on the interwebs!! Hopefully when life slows down I'll be able to get to know all of you again and catch up with everyone.

Wendy :-)

You've been missed around here, and I'm so happy for you. Getting back into the "dating scene" (God don't you hate that phrase?) is scary and thrilling at the same time. Wishing you a happy date!

Good to see you! Sounds like you are busy, busy, busy, but you are handling all of it just great! Glad to hear from you! Hope the date went well, but if not, there are many more fish in the sea.....you are worth a good catch - don't settle.

It is so good to hear from you. Good luck on your 'first date'. You will have to tell us all about it! I think I am going to be in your area again this summer. We will have to arrange a visit then.

Good to hear from you. Have fun on your date!

I Love you guys so much!!! Thanks for all the kind words...I miss you guys a lot! xoxox

The date ....was a tad disappointing. He was very, very sweet. but Oh My Goodness.....soooooo borrrring!!! LOL! I struggled to stay awake and not yawn. So I don't know where it will go now. I joined another site (how else do you meet people?!!?) and the only men messaging me are scammers and American men! I life in Canada for crying out loud! WHY would I want to date someone from another country and how exactly would that work!? It's really frustrating dating online....soooo many strange people wanted exceptionally strange things! So I don't know how much longer I will do this for. Today I have been asked by a 36 year old to rent a hotel room with him!!! I'm FIFTY!! What the heck!? It's CRAZY!!

Liam is doing amazing and keeping up in school. I bought him down hill skis for xmas so of course there has been next to NO SNOW here. He's been skiing once....so that's been a bit frustrating. Otherwise, all is well. A bit too addicted to the video tech...so going to work on that for the next while.

Thanks again for messaging back. Hoping everyone is well!! (((HUGE HUGS)))) to you all!! xoxox

Sorry to hear your date was disappointing, but remember the old saying "You gotta kiss a lot of frogs before you find Prince Charming".

So, one frog down! A few more to go..... hang in there, he's out there somewhere, and I know you two will find each other when the time is right.

February 10th, 2017, 10:24 PM
Sorry date was disappointing. At least he was really nice! Imagine if he had been a creep - now that would've been scary! Yes, one frog down.........
