yoohoo daters waves

Snapespeare Thu 14-Mar-13 13:50:53

placemark of general grin smugness.

lubeybooby Thu 14-Mar-13 13:54:47

grin

God, that time again???

lubeybooby Thu 14-Mar-13 14:32:14

Yep, again already!

What's the plan for Saturday Lubey?

lubeybooby Thu 14-Mar-13 14:42:13

OWW he's arriving about 2pm, so said I'd give him time to settle in and we'd meet about 6pm. Then the plan is drinks, dinner, drinks, drinks, and then presuming all is well and that and neither of us have run away screaming (unlikely both seen lots of pics etc and personalities seem to gel) then back to his room..

Bant Thu 14-Mar-13 14:47:37

Don't get me wrong. I wear glasses. When I go out I'm often in contacts though. I can't say she looks better with the glasses off compared to on because the overall effect of big glasses and a big plastic beady chain is almost like a veil - its actually difficult to see how she looks at all. They're overpowering. She's not less attractive with them on, she's just obscured by brown plastic

And yes she's a geek. That is good. I'm seeing her on Wednesday when I'm back in the country. I think I may cancel date 3 with medstudent as I don't want to shag and dump, and don't want to stay with her out of guilt. And she's made clear date 3 would be mostly naked.

OhWesternWind Thu 14-Mar-13 14:49:37

That sounds pretty good, you lucky thing you!

My Saturday evening from 6pm is likely to involve Hygiene Wars with the dcs and crap telly as its highlights ... When I am explaining through gritted teeth for the nth time why you aren't washed if you've not actually used any soap, there you will be swinging from the chandelier with a rose between your teeth (or something) and a hot man waiting in the wings. Jealous, moi???

OhWesternWind Thu 14-Mar-13 14:53:23

That sounds like a good plan Bant re med student and also one of self-preservation - I'd not be surprised if getting nekkid induced new levels of bitiness to parts previously out of range ...

lubeybooby Thu 14-Mar-13 14:59:47

OWW grin the joys of having freedom as an adult! Something I've never had before in my adult life.

I went from school teen to mother to working and studying mother to single and working and studying mother through crap marriage out the other side doing the single and working and studying mum thing again but then joyously stopped needing babysitters about a year ago. It's... it's... a revelation! All so new and weird. Yet I have the benefit of years of experience too. So I can go out and be a bit wild but also avoid twats. I have to say I really do love it grin

MirandaWest Thu 14-Mar-13 15:07:53

My Saturday will have watching children climb up walls, going to see Oliver with them in a local theatre smile and then everyone going to bed a bit late. And hoping we all wake up late too grin

Tonight I will be all alone which is a litte unusual. May go running after dropping DC off with XH.

OhWesternWind Thu 14-Mar-13 15:39:36

Very appositely, have just had a Wowcher e-mail through featuring hipster-style (read Scooby-style) glasses with clear lenses which are this season's hottest look. So I think you should just bow down before her gloriously trend-setting stylishness Bant and learn to love the glasses.

Lose the chain though.

KirstyWirsty Thu 14-Mar-13 16:15:27

Marking my spot .. Going to set up an OKC profile on Sunday when DD goes to her dad's .. Onward and upward and all that .. Had a few texts from Mr Cheeky while I was in New York which I have ignored .. He let me down for the last time last week

I'm hoping to tap the rich vein of gorgeous Glaswegians that lubey and wine have found (although us that on POF)

mercury7 Thu 14-Mar-13 17:01:57

this thread series is fairly galloping along!

Flipper924 Thu 14-Mar-13 17:14:50

Hello new thread.

Got asked out on a date by a normal looking bloke on pof, only to receive a text from a friend asking me to go to the solicitor with her on Friday because her husband's left her. I don't think I will be in a dating mood!

I am therefore looking forward to hearing all your stories...

Winefiend Thu 14-Mar-13 17:31:41

Kirsty oh I think Lubey is far more successful than me on that front! I had a quick look at that 'meet me' thig on pof earlier for Glasgow. Hmmmmm a lorra spuds.

lubeybooby Thu 14-Mar-13 17:34:57

I never even looked at the 'meet me' grin don't bother with that shite.

All I can promise you is that they are better than in my area... if you don't believe me, change your area to Leicester and try that wink then come back and tell me I'm wrong for swooning at the haven of lovely (in comparison) Glaswegian gents....

lubeybooby Thu 14-Mar-13 17:35:40

Oh Flipper I think that would put me off feeling like it too!

Winefiend Thu 14-Mar-13 17:38:33

lubey oh I find it quite quick as I can zoom through at warp speed grin nonononono is generally what I am encountering at the mo. When I have more time on Sat I'll have another wee go I think. Though at the rate my week is panning out, I may not have time for a man!

ike1 Thu 14-Mar-13 17:47:01

Yeah specs fine...lose the chain...

MirandaWest Thu 14-Mar-13 17:51:50

I am sitting in my ex husbands clapped out car with the engine running outside pets at home. This is because he left his lights on while he was at morrisons and the battery went nearly flat (car is about 22 or so. Was his granny's). They are in pets at home getting a replacement fish.

Why did I marry him? Why?

Am still intending to go running despite the rain. Will drive to mr Nices house (in my car which is next to this one) and run from there for a little variety. Then going to use his house to (a) shower and (b) have microwave ready meal as I don't have a microwave, while he is somewhere like paramount studios maybe in Los Angeles in the heat. Then I will do mystery shopping reports smile

Mercury I forgot to add have you thought about getting new glasses? to my list grin

Honestly, I have tried everything. It is quite remarkable how any glasses will turn me into a bad version of Olive with a side parting.

Over the years I've been told more than once by friends the glasses I'm wearing "really don't do anything for you". With a couple of friends, I have, after years of them badgering me, let them try some out on me in an opticians. There is a moment after a few key pairs where they go mmm. They never ask again.

Have to say though Bant that plastic beaded chain sounds like a crime . I know she can't wear metals but even so <hypocrite face>. Maybe it's some ultimate man test.confused

VelvetSpoon Thu 14-Mar-13 18:04:58

Lubey am grin but also slightly envy of your saturday plans. I will be at home watching crap TV while the DSs kill things upstairs on their X boxes. Although I might make a start on decluttering ready for the (hopefully imminent if I ever get round to booking the guy to do it) construction of my ensuite and walk in wardrobe smile

I am however going for drinks with friends tomorrow as I can't stay in all weekend. And it takes my mind off the fact I haven't see C for 3 long weeks
