Woop! Lubes is BACK grin

newbies, daters, those taking a break, online dating real life dating or otherwise, and the loved up.... all welcome!

Off we go -chit chat away.

(I might even dip a toe back in myself)

OhWesternWind Sat 01-Jun-13 09:13:33

Sorry, not been very postative recently, feeling a bit low and discouraged for no particular reason and didn't want to put the thread on a downer maaan.

Off out tonight with potentially very good bloke, overwhelming feeling is why bother because it will just be another one going nowhere. I am going to bother, though - maybe this time? I think he's getting a bit carried away and needs the fish, have tried to tell him I'm not going to be the same as the person he's imagining, but it's his first date and he's all starry-eyed and over-excited.

I knew you couldn't resist a good beard Ike! But I'm with Nora on the foot thing. Bit of fresh ordinary sweat is ok but not horrible foot sweat!

Django good googling, better to find out now. I am going to google people in future - googled LM recently which I'd not done before but I was being sad, and found out something absolutely shocking that has knocked me for six. I am well out of it. Hope you get to meet up with the joiner.

SS course I remember you! Loads of luck for your date!

Pom more than happy to look at your profile but won't be til Monday as my PC at home is broken and my phone blocks dating sites ... I go out once or twice a week, get babysitters over. Hasn't had any ill effects on the dc I hope.

T sounding good.

Bant nothing like an overheated tirade to round off the working week - silly sod. Getting the papers is bound to be a difficult time, unsettling, even though you know it's the right thing. Hope you have a wonderful weekend with the dc.

Hello Camper - sounds like a bit of a chat with him is in order. He probably doesn't realise how you feel so better to just say you'd like to spend a bit more time together, and see what happens ...

Nora hope you have a nice half-slip on today, otherwise the sun might shine through your skirt and people will <gasp> see your legs. Beware.

Miranda fingers crossed it all goes well.

Hello everyone else!

Secretservice Sat 01-Jun-13 09:50:45

OWW sorry you're feeling a bit down today, hopefully Newbie can put a spring back in your step! Sorry LM is still shocking you, but at least it must help do away with all the 'what ifs'

This is my first daylight first date - only 3 hours to go, and I don't think there's another concealer in the world to hide my bags and sags.

And which tights? Opaques or not. Is the dress too dressy for lunch? Aaargh! Where is my insouciance?

KinNora Sat 01-Jun-13 10:14:49

Secret insouciance has to be worked at ( I'm no fricking good at it at all ) - have fun and remember the loo report.

Django good sleuthing, I take the view that it's best to be armed with information.

OWW sorry you're feeling fed up and even more sorry that Loser Man has managed to upset you even at a distance. I hope new bloke is a breath of fresh air. You're bothering because you're a lovely person and one day you will find a fantastic man who won't be able to believe his luck.

I'm wearing jeans but have, like the no-good trollop I am, got a black and green bra on underneath a gingham shirt - I'm channelling The Beverly Hillbillies today ( I can sing the theme tune for you if you'd like )

OWW LM is nor worth another thought, you already found out loads when you were with him but that was like being slowly boiled from a cold pan. Don't let him knock you any more, he's nothing compared to you.

Kin dark bra, gingham shirt? Straight to hell grin

OhWesternWind Sat 01-Jun-13 10:43:38

Have a cup of Texas Tea Nora!

Tonight's bloke is different to my usuals, to be honest I wouldn't have contacted him but he contacted me and just seems really nice and genuine. Am also in need of a damn good seeing to which might be colouring my judgement.

SS what sort of place are you going to for lunch? I have had very few daytime dates, much prefer to lurk about in dim and forgiving lighting. But I bet you look great, and I bet you he won't notice your outfit apart from thinking "Wow!"

Not really upset about LM but shocked! And doubting my judgement even more ...

Morning all.

I'm back. I had a OD break for a couple of weeks. I have checked it and its no better grin

I'm going out tonight so might find him while out. My take away is back blush I saw him topless and now its back! He also now waves if I'm out and he's driving past. I'm getting there. grin

OhWesternWind Sat 01-Jun-13 10:57:32

Has he lost the hat SP?

He lost his hat and his top and I must say its a very nice sight grin

OD isn't getting me anywhere. Just random nutters and strange requests. I'm going to try RL i think. It will take forever no doubt but its worth a shot.

Tonight I shall see what talents out grin

KinNora Sat 01-Jun-13 11:12:06

Pizza Man SP ? Quick, someone get the porn soundtrack.

OWW ah the 'need a damn good seeing to' spectacles, they're responsible for a lot if you ask me.

Swimming pools and movie stars ...

Yes its the pizza man again. He was topless and hatless and it was lovely to see. Maybe I judged the hat too much grin

ike1 Sat 01-Jun-13 11:40:30

Now dont laugh...Mr Beard is a qualified bushcraft instructor (yes another one)

KinNora Sat 01-Jun-13 11:59:09

Too late Ike ...

ike1 Sat 01-Jun-13 12:17:19

Yep Kin and he cant wait to tame my woodland...

OhWesternWind Sat 01-Jun-13 12:26:33

Ike that has made me grin. Wonder what the exams involved for that then?

KinNora Sat 01-Jun-13 12:37:41

On one thread I read once, probably about bikini waxing or something, a poster described her genitalia as 'looking like David Bellamy saying 'WOW' ' - it made me hysterical for a while and for some reason you've reminded me of it now.

WarmFuzzyFun Sat 01-Jun-13 13:18:06

grin @Ike

I know I have been lurking and neglecting my Jezebel behaviours recently [WFF looks shamefaced]

But in my defence I've been...well, actually not much. Won't bore you lovely folk with my Nihilist existence...been a bit meh, ya'll know how that is? wink

SP I would make mention to pizza man the places you frequent, see if he turns up...

SS good to see you back and good luck (fingers crossed), I look forward to the post date report...

Django I have found, googling can create a 'what the hell is he doing with me?' thought, if the person in question has achieved much/has a lot of positive stuff. (especially wrt: Lab)

Bant sad about the nisi, enjoy your time with your children, give them tail feathers a rest.smile

OWW, you should trust yourself more not less as a result of what you found out, as you have more evidence that you were and are complete right about him. smile

Juliette 5 sleeps eh? You'd better make the most of them there sleeps as there will be little sleeping once you see Dutchy wink and yes I am buying a fascinator in orange, in the shape of a yacht, just in case, so there!

Miranda hope all goes well smile

Hey Twinny I imagined you looking more of a Daisy Dukes/Dukes of Hazard caricature (in the nicest possible way, of course). I had a lovely gingham shirt but the buttons could not longer stand the strain so another item to the charity shop blush

Hey T, Merc, Velvet, Snape*Lubes, Kirsty, Moan, camper, Raf, Dolly, Daisy, Pom*

Now, I haven't mentioned everyone, I know but please forgive me, I've tried me best!

ike1 Sat 01-Jun-13 13:33:57

Dunno my darlings probs an nvq for ferreting around in damp undergrowth ....he's teaching rifle shooting this afternoon so man of action as well as beard....

KinNora Sat 01-Jun-13 13:35:29

Hello Twinny, love. My gingham blouse is a VoH special, I wish I looked like Daisy Duke - more of a David Dickenson vibe going on ( hilarious gag for those who've been exposed to whatever that ITV afternoon antiques show is called ). How are you and how's Lab ?

WarmFuzzyFun Sat 01-Jun-13 13:36:01

I think he sounds lurvely Ike. Ya'll know I like man hair...drools

KinNora Sat 01-Jun-13 13:36:14

Has he got an impressive weapon Ike ?

Well i wont be going anywhere tonight due to having my bag stolen with ID.

Night in and cant even get take away man to come as card was in bag so cant get money out. Today loves me

WarmFuzzyFun Sat 01-Jun-13 13:41:20

Hey Kinsmile Lab is...I am not sure...met him for coffee the other day. Was nice, but I am getting a different vibe from him, not one I like either. Am wondering if I did the right thing to close down my options and go exclusive so early on...

WarmFuzzyFun Sat 01-Jun-13 13:45:28

TMI alert:

Having said that, I always sit there (whenever we go out) and just count the hours/minutes until I get to take him to bed, so blush I may let my leaping ladyparts rule proceedings for a bit and continue to go with the flow of events.

WarmFuzzyFun Sat 01-Jun-13 13:47:02

Oh no SP angry Sorry, it is a pain, especially on a weekend.

KinNora Sat 01-Jun-13 14:27:19

God, I'm sorry SP that's horrendous, can you get hold of any emergency cash ?

WFF arf at 'leaping ladyparts' - I stole 'fanny flutter' off someone on another thread. Do you think he might still be dealing with his recent problems ? Also, are your other options still open ?
