Just an update:

Ric and I have been chatting on & off for a couple weeks now. Unfortnately, no major sparks are flying for me. He has yet to really open up and talk to me. Still just 2 or 3 sentences per email...nothing really interesting. Not sure how long this is going to last...

Good news, I got an email from a great guy. He really sounds like someone I want to know more about & we've got a TON of things in common (plus he likes cats!). One problem...no picture. I don't want to sound mean or anything, but I've just gotta know what the dude looks like. I plan on sending him a email tonight and maybe get to know him better. OH...did I mention that he used to be a PRO ATHLETE?

I'm really not a "gold digging" kind of gal but that would be SO cool to date someone like that! Hopefully he's not all brawn and no brains!

I'm sorry no sparks are flying between you and Ric! He sounded really nice as well.

It's a shame this new guy has no pic, Does he live near you? It's good he likes cats.

Good Luck Shell!

[b]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!!!

I'm still chatting with Ric...well, I do most of the chatting anyway.

He's a nice guy...I just wish he'd open up to me a bit. I even asked him if he had big plans for the weekend (I was trying to hint around a bit) and his reply was "No...I'm sure I'll find something to do though". That was not the answer I was looking for!

As for the new guy...he hasn't replied back to my email. He lives in Lincoln (which is where I'll be moving to in a month or so) and it's about 70 miles away from here. He does like cats...so that's a big plus for me!

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. Silly man!

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.

Shell, I just opened this thread! This is an exciting follow up story!!! I was gonna take a look at the first guy (Rick?), do I have to register to be able to see him? This other guy also sounds interresting, any word from him?
To bad Rich didn´t take the hint about the weekend.
I met my s/o on a Blind Date, and we just hit it off right away. I thought I had nothing to loose, and one dinner with and unpleasant guy, would be nothing more than a dinner with an unpleasant guy instead of doing nothing that saturday night. But - he turned out not to be unpleasant
So I just want to say GO FOR IT, you don´t have anything to loose, if the ones you meet are a pest, you just don´t marry them!

Sess, you crack me up Girl! I think it's wonderful how you and your S/O met!

No you don't have to register to see his profile. His user name is WildandRomantic (funny,eh?). Could you look at mine and tell HONESTLY what you think? It's so hard to talk about yourself with out sounding like a dumba$$. My user name is Huskerbabe77.

Thanks!
post #73 of 83
I tried to search for Wildandromantic, but before I could see him I think I had to register.
I´m gonna try again, and also try and look at your profile

post #80 of 83
Well...I really liked your profile, Shell, it´s honest and I think it has an honest, straight forward feeling.

I like the Wildandromantic, but there´s something, I can´t put my finger on it, maybe it´s just me beeing paranoid. He really seems nice.
The gwhoisit is also really nice, on some level more attractive (if you can say that, not knowing him at all ) Maybe he is just better in expressing himself. I like his attitute about there beeing more to a person than you can see, it´s a good thing to get to know each other a bit first. I know I would go for the "good looking one" first, but that one might not be as good looking on the inside!
(I have to say, I would NEVER have guessed myself dating a bold guy, and now there´s one of them living with me! I probably would not have given him a chance if not for the blind date!)

Thank you for your input! It's just hard to make yourself sound interesting with out sounding conceited or moranic.

The new guy (I don't even know he's name yet!) just sparked something for me. He sounded so intelligent and genuine. Did you catch the part where he said he was once a Pro Athlete? I'm just dying to find out who he is....I'm so fasinated by that. I guess I'll find out who the Mystery Man is if he ever replies back to my email. Now it's just a waiting game.

Thanks again for checking that out!
post #82 of 83
I agree with you, there is something very genuine about the "new" guy. He seems very relaxed and honest and caring.
Yes I did catch the pro athlete part So maybe he wants to get to know someone just by beeing himself, but not a selebrity. The no-name thing is probably not because he has a hump and a hairpiece!

And you´re welcome, anytime

I've been reading this thread on and off, trying to decide whether or not I should share my story... and since I'm typing this, I guess that means I will!!! I met my boyfriend online. Here's the short of it...

A band that I saw was handing out flyers... on the flyer they were advertising their online 'punk rock dating service' that could be accessed through their website. One day I went on there, just for something to do, and I came across Josh's profile and picture. I thought he was incredibly handsome and was amazed that we liked so many of the same bands and movies. I IMed him not long after... found out he had a girlfriend (but what did I care.. he lived in IL while I was living in PA). We chated online as friends... emailed as friends... him and Stacy ( ) broke up, we talked on the phone as friends... the two of them got back together (we stopped talking)... he emailed me after a few months... resumed IMing and emailing and talking... they broke up for good. Then...

He took a greyhound bus out here (15 hours here, 26 hours going back) to meet me last April. We got together. He moved here last September... and life is wonderful.

I agree with the idea (and I'm sorry I've forgotten who said it) that you can't be 'looking' for love. It just finds you. When I went on that 'punk rock dating service' I was honestly on there just to waste some time... I thought it might be amusing. It took about a year and a half for Josh and I to meet for the first time... which was great, because we already had this incredible friendship... It made the rest of the process go so smoothly...

So anyway... I'm down with online dating. I hope that you find someone who makes you happy... just don't be in a rush (= You seem like an incredible woman... let the men come to you!!!!
