New thread time! Great timing with it being new years day...

Most of you know what to do... off you go!

Just in case you don't... just chit chat all your dating related stuff here. If you are new, just jump right in to the blethering. More the merrier!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! grin

Then again...Mr Millipede must have liked what he saw so must be doing something right...hmmmm...

Wallison Tue 01-Jan-13 22:25:47

MrsCellophane the fact that there were hundreds that didn't get it doesn't exactly fill me with confidence... but yay that you did find him in the end.

Wonder if I am brave enough for such a profile ...

Snape - geocaching looks cool! I like the way that you have to leave something behind for the next person to find - v good.

Fish slap please. Slap me!

So, when I met fireman I didn't fancy him. Maybe a tiny bit of me did, but definitely no more than 5%. So why am I now waiting for text messages...wondering if I've said the wrong thing...wtf?? Somehow my brain has managed to convince itself that I really do fancy him. This is following on from me being quite watery about meeting up with him again when he phoned me because I wasn't at all sure m
Anyway hopefully meeting next tues so will see. I know what it is...his texts are always jokey and mildly flirty.

ike1 Tue 01-Jan-13 22:49:16

Your enjoying the banter Scatty its good.

Wallison Tue 01-Jan-13 22:51:03

He is woo-ing you!

VelvetSpoon Tue 01-Jan-13 22:54:28

Scatty I agree. He is woo-ing you. That's lovely smile

Mild flirting is so much nicer than the blatantly obvious stuff. Or the stuff that starts off pervy and heads downhill into smut within 3 texts!

Hi. Happy New Year!

I am okay, felt a bit tearful about new year (first full year as newly divorced). Although my decision I still feel sad.

Am on sofa, planning to enter the fray end of Jan by joining Match I think.

Scattylatte Tue 01-Jan-13 23:02:02

Thanks. Maybe. I've got to stop myself from being ridiculous. Just go with the flow.
Has millipede communicated any more?

VelvetSpoon Tue 01-Jan-13 23:04:59

Scatty I think we need to mutually slap each other with the wet fish.

Spaceman has been talking about date 3. I now feel all over-excited and enthusiastic, like a particularly lively puppy blush

BantaBaby Tue 01-Jan-13 23:07:33

velvet. Don't wee on the carpet

Scattylatte Tue 01-Jan-13 23:18:00

Lol bant velvet and I will be prone to over excitement due to the fact we rarely get past date one. We may display random ill placed hysteria and be in need of slapping.
I'm just going to wait patiently and not check phone. Not check phone!!

Nomorepain Tue 01-Jan-13 23:19:25

Ah Velvet - I'm very happy for you!!! Brill news

WFF - get back on the horse! Will make you laugh if nothing else!!! Hope the tears have assed now and replaced with optimism!! You have got a new world ahead of you now. Full of possibilities!!

Nomorepain Tue 01-Jan-13 23:19:59

*passed not assed! Not sure how you can ass tears!!!

VelvetSpoon Tue 01-Jan-13 23:27:04

He is liking my FB photos now

Am blush x about 100

Woopsiedaisy Tue 01-Jan-13 23:27:59

Can't believe how fast you guys have moved today.

Walk on the moors sorted my hangover, but thank god my walking partner was in an even worse state and was happy to settle for 6 miles.

Tomorrow is the start of yet another OD foray !!

Scattylatte Tue 01-Jan-13 23:33:16

Ok here is my OD update.

Fireman. Well, will see
Man who has a picture of an enourmous Yorkshire pudding on his profile. Exchanging messages.
Man who works in rubber. Have accidently deleted him but we were talking about food.
Millipede. Nothing since he said his mother was scared of his spider.
An engineer who wants to meet for a drink. I've said Sunday.

Wallison Tue 01-Jan-13 23:38:21

Yay woopsie - bet that cleared the cobwebs no problem!

And yay for Velvet too - he thinks you're a fox! Brilliant!

Am v pissed off with ex - my son is visiting him for a week (this happens maybe twice or three times a year and that is it as far as seeing him goes) and this is the second night he's been staying with ex's parents in this week because ex has a cold and his parents 'want to give him a bit of a pause'. Ffs. He spends his entire fucking life pausing when it comes to our son. And every time my son goes down there the same thing happens - he's got a cold; he's busy; he's tired; he can't cope etc etc and palms him off on his parents. I'm not exaggerating. Every. Single. Time. Not really looking for any answers as I have already LTB obv but honestly, that's pretty damn lame, isn't it? Our boy is lovely (well I guess I would say that wouldn't I?), not boisterous, very sweet and not difficult to look after at all.

BantaBaby Tue 01-Jan-13 23:41:26

I had my DC (6 and 4) for 4 days last week, and caught the lurgey off them, so we were all knocked out from it. Spent 3 days pretty much lying on the sofa bed with them, passing the boxes of tissues to blow our noses in turn, watching the Sound of Music and a peppa-pig-a-thon on DVD, with occasional runs to the kitchen by me to get some buttery jam on toast and cereal. Wouldn't change it for anything.

Wallison Tue 01-Jan-13 23:44:51

See, Banta, that's what I would say was normal. Me and my son were ill in the run-up to Xmas - coldy, achey, tempy, miserable etc. It happens. I wouldn't have dreamt of passing him onto someone else and certainly not if I only saw him twice a year as it is (his choice). Fumefumefume.
