Here we are all

Dating related chit chat here

watchoutforthatsnail Sat 02-Feb-13 17:32:55

and im backn smile

velvet - its not over yet, did he say by the end of the wekend or by the end of today?

mrs c - i second what velvet says... are you ok?

juliette, quite why the young ones think you will message them back, i dont know. I blame stiflers mom!!

Date was really nice actually. Chatted lots, took a lot of archetiture type pics. Ended up in the nice pub and had a few aspalls. Hes only here for one more month, its not going to go anywhere, we might go do a few more siteseeing things together if we are free at the same time. Nice chap. He said it was a shame he had to go, which is was. rural busses suck arse.

Am now in my pjs and want to cook a chilli. I have texted the other one... but not had a reply as yet, which is good, because im a bit too drunk and a bit too hungry to want to go out. I want chilli, topped with cheese and magic mike on the dvd player.

VelvetSpoon Sat 02-Feb-13 17:38:45

Watch really glad you had a nice time smile and cheese topped chilli sounds fab, I think I'd rather have that than a date!

Cuthbert said he'd text me today. But he normally only texts in the evenings anyway, so it's early yet and I'm not worrying. Plus I know he was off out with his dad this afternoon and seeing his DC this evening so will be busy in any event. And he is crap at texting.

I might text him if I haven't heard by tomorrow.

lubeybooby Sat 02-Feb-13 17:38:48

Oh my god. Chilli topped with cheese. I am obsessed with food today <drool>

watchoutforthatsnail Sat 02-Feb-13 17:42:20

yeah, how else do you eat chilli?

it needs to be in layers.
rice
chilli, extra hot
cover the lot in extra strong mature cheddar
spodge sour cream and guacmole all over the top.
eat off lap in front of tv.

<ponders why i am on the podgy side>

smile

velvet, sure he will text... he said he would. and if he doesnt, then you have already decided how you feel about that.. if that makes sense.

ike1 Sat 02-Feb-13 17:43:01

Going to see Life of Pi not my choice but its my mates dibs cos she doesnt get out much. I had a fry up btw and went back to bed (shame cos the weather was great but best place for me.)

ike1 Sat 02-Feb-13 17:44:35

It'd better not be a misery fest .....think I might have to smuggle a strong spirit in, in a hip flask.

SweetSeraphim Sat 02-Feb-13 17:55:16

It's not a misery fest, but it does have some very moving/sad moments.... good though!

48howdidthathappen Sat 02-Feb-13 17:55:46

48howdidthathappen Sat 02-Feb-13 18:00:33

X post Watch Onwards and upwards smile

Sorry if I missed anyone out. I am fucked grin

lubeybooby Sat 02-Feb-13 18:04:51

48 if you posted on it it should still be in your 'threads I'm on'

if not, it's in off the beaten track. Can't link to it as it's bad form

See the square box with discussions of the day? If you click on topics just under that, then scroll down to 'other stuff' in the topics list, otbt is listed there.

Scrazy Sat 02-Feb-13 18:05:41

48 are we still giving up the fags tomorrow?

I've confessed to DD that I haven't quit, she is back next weekend so if I'm not ready then I've covered it. She hates me smoking!

48howdidthathappen Sat 02-Feb-13 18:46:31

Scrazy I haven't got my E ciggy yet. Got my mums birthday monday and a family meeting at hospital tuesday to discuss what happens next, purely routine 2 week assessment, following move to local hospital. I feel a bit crap about it all if I am honest.

I have got to get on with the non smoking thing though, gonna have a gander online at the E ciggys.

Scrazy Sat 02-Feb-13 18:49:35

48, hope things are OK with your mum.

E cigs are just nicotine without the other stuff. They won't get you off the nicotine which is the addictive substance that keeps us puffing away. We need to get over that, only takes a couple of weeks. Bit like getting over a man grin.

48howdidthathappen Sat 02-Feb-13 18:51:14

I can get over a man a damn site easier grin

lubeybooby Sat 02-Feb-13 18:56:36

I can get under one even easier than that sorry couldn't resist

WarmFuzzyFun Sat 02-Feb-13 19:00:59

Hi everyone.

Bit late but congratulations to Flipper (rooting for everything to go well), and a hug to Lubey, I hope that this time next year you will be both delighted and glad with whatever you decide to do.

Can someone tell me why is it if I talk (or post) about a new potential relationship it gets fucked up shortly afterwards? Am I the only one who has this curse?

I have spoken to my friend about a guy who I really bloody like, and I am now feeling completely spooked. sad

Fucking hell, OD, can be bloody torturous can't it? What will be, will be. (WFF tries and fails to be insouciant)

[Pass me the wet fish, please]

WarmFuzzyFun x

Scrazy Sat 02-Feb-13 19:06:37

Warmfussy, I doubt mentioning someone jinxes it, art of probability an all. Mention away!

48howdidthathappen Sat 02-Feb-13 19:08:15

WFF I think there maybe a general jinx feeling on here at the moment.

You are not alone!

48howdidthathappen Sat 02-Feb-13 19:12:51

Saying that I mention Mr R&R all the time. I am a non believer shock

Awaits text of doom grin

watchoutforthatsnail Sat 02-Feb-13 19:16:07

Wff. Haha, i think its dating in general. We
Are on thread 39!!!!

If it worked it would be full of posts of people having a few dates then meeting someone. Its not smile

Snapespeare Sat 02-Feb-13 19:26:38

I want chilli now.

msC I am virtually dashing by you and giving you a smooch on the cheek. It will get easier. I absolutely promise. everyone said that to me re: voldemort...I know it's nowhere near the same situation, but they were right. I can look back and think of men who made me catch my breath with their beauty and élan and today I can smile at the memory, but honestly not give a toss. We progress. We go through the motions a bit, until it becomes habit out of a self-survival necessity... But I promise, I absolutely promise you have made the very best decision for you. You have put yourself first and I high-five you for that.

Right. Practicalities. I am going on a second date tomorrow to namelesseeeses house, because he has chronic fatigue and I wiped him out with the dazzling force of my personality on Wednesday hmm would someone very kindly step up for safety's sake here and let me PM them his address? I don't want to 'real-life' friend this blush I'm going at three... If I don't check in by seven or so, I need someone to phone the rozzers. Anyone?

OhWesternWind Sat 02-Feb-13 19:35:32

I will Snape!

Scrazy Sat 02-Feb-13 19:36:00

Snape of course. PM me. I'm not going out tomorrow afaik so will be around. You are right to stay safe.

mercury7 Sat 02-Feb-13 19:36:40

OD, is a lucky dip, takes alot of dips before you get lucky.

I provisionally have a first date next week, it was going to be today, but I made excuses.

Snape I've gone to someone's house on a second date without any kind of 'safety buddy' back up..is that careless of me confused
are you really worried about the chap?
