First of all, I don't want to sound desperate or anything but I did put an Online Dating Ad on a month or so ago.
from my perspective - and if your photo is anything to go by, what the hell do you need on line dating for?? I am stunned that you dont have a black book full of people wanting to take you out and enjoy your company.
You are - from what I know of you and apologise that I have not known you for that long - warm hearted, have a terrific personality, having a huge and caring heart and I bet you are the sort of person that any man would love to be in the company of.
Its not about being with the adonis of blokes, if you took one look at me - you would think "hmmmmm - back end of a bus", and I often wonder why the hell my wife fell for me??? Why did she ditch her boyfriend of 5 years on the evening of our first date and he looked a hell of a adonis in comparriosn to me - and then three weeks later - we were engaged! I can make her laugh, am nothing to look at, I can do all the DIY stuff and love to do it. I can fit burglar alarms etc and love to fly models and full size airplanes... I love to drive and go places, take her out and still love her company.
I think that - and again from what I know of you, any man would be thrilled and would walk taller than the CN tower having you walk with him on his arm. If things were different - i certainly would.
Dont go looking for love, I did for years and found nothing. I fell for my job - problem was love has a way of finding you and biting you in the ass and its an incredible feeling. I shook like a leaf every time I was with Carol for ages.
You are an incredible person, put the black book away and relax, go out with friends and dont go looking for it , it WILL find you. If it can to this back end of a bus - it will definately for someone who looks as good in the photo as she writes on TCS.
And - if you ever find yourself in the UK, I would be honoured with my wife to take you out for dinner and show you around. You are exactly the sort of person my wife is - what more can a man want - except in my case a deep love of lasagne!!!
Kev, You are such a sweetie! Thank you so much for the kind words! It really made me feel good.
My biggest problem finding Mr. Right is my location. I live in such a small town and everyone thinks I'm just "the girl next door". Plus, the men here are either married, married looking for something more or drunken fools that can't find a woman to save their lives.
I honestly think that I intimadate guys. I'm not sure why, but not a single guy will come up to me when I'm out on the town. I'm not a party animal and I don't act like a drunken nut or anything. I just hang out with my friends and have a good time. I might occasionally get a free drink, but most of the time I leave with out even being noticed. It's just so disappointing. Even when I go out of town, I get the same results. The most odd thing that I've noticed is that if I'm with a guy, quite a few men check me out. That is just the weirdest thing to me. I remember visiting my now ex boyfriend in Omaha and we went to a nice restaurant...I got asked out 4 times that night. And each time was RIGHT in front of my BF! Bill was not a happy camper, but yet he did admit that it was flattering to him that so many guys wanted HIS woman.
As for my little black book, I don't have one.
I can count all of my past relationships on one hand....2 very committed relationships and 2 high school relationships that didn't last very long. Come to think of it, I think I can count all the guys I've ever went on a date with....now, that is sad!
Kev, once again thank you for all the kind words. You're wife is one lucky woman to have such a caring and sweet man to call her husband.
Quit those negative thoughts...You are not the back end of a bus! Just remember, someone who is real knows that looks, money, and material possesions don't guarantee happiness.
