Welcome one and all.

CynicalOptimist Fri 07-Feb-14 12:37:26

Got room for an old cynic?? lol

God, I sound like the voice of doom!!

FolkGirl Fri 07-Feb-14 12:39:49

You do smile

TheCrow Fri 07-Feb-14 12:59:52

Hooray for thread 69! grin Room for a little'un?

I have a date with hookup guy, what's even better is that he's not sure if he'll be able to make it Saturday as he's at a gig, so if Mr MM calls me and asks me to go round his I'll have to say no smile

FolkGirl Fri 07-Feb-14 13:03:06

Oh I wondered how long it would take Crow... wink

Blossomflowers Fri 07-Feb-14 13:06:41

Hello, I am staying on here if that's ok.

TheCrow Fri 07-Feb-14 13:08:06

Just getting it out of the way grin grin

Hi everyone, sounds like there are a lot of dates going on! Folk, your guy sounds lovely.

Got geeky coming round tonight, so I'm feeling pretty upbeat today. Hopefully we'll have a good night. I bought a lock for my room, so no more dc coming in my room.

FolkGirl Fri 07-Feb-14 13:39:48

Thanks dont.

So pleased to hear that things are still on with geeky smile

CynicalOptimist Fri 07-Feb-14 14:37:45

My sunday date is now texting all the time, I can't make out if he is being keen or is just needy confused

Jarlin Fri 07-Feb-14 15:08:09

crow have you heard from Mr MM?

Folk please don't give up on your man. Hopefully the counselling will help you accept that you ARE worthy of such a wonderful guy.

Apologies for losing track of who is going on what date over the weekend confused

Still got another 6 sleeps til my date sad. And to add to my frustration, it looks like the tube drivers will be on strike that day angry
Luckily Slow Burner said we can get a cab or take a walk if it's not raining.

Good luck to all those on dates over the next few days......

TheCrow Fri 07-Feb-14 15:36:16

Jarlin no but that's normal, he doesn't text me all week and then calls me when drunk and wants me to go and see him. That's never been a problem until the whole ex situation, now it's a complicated mess! As the week's gone on found I've been less bothered about him, but know if he rings me I'll start the whole thing over again blush

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Fri 07-Feb-14 16:24:49

Aha! I found the dating thread 69 and noone is making dirty jokes about the title? That's a relief!

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Fri 07-Feb-14 16:39:33

Oh there was already a dirty joke. That's good.

My date is in TWO HOURS!! Ah!!

FolkGirl Fri 07-Feb-14 16:40:02

What are you wearing?!

FolkGirl Fri 07-Feb-14 16:41:26

I mean for your date, obviously. Not right now...

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Fri 07-Feb-14 16:43:23

At the moment I have on a black long sleeved hobbs dress & black tights as I have been wearing it all day. I haven't started looking in my wardrobe yet. Just recovering from the week/ leaving kids off and drinking tea! :-) I had better get a move on!

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Fri 07-Feb-14 16:46:16

The thing is... Flat shoes look silly with a dress/skirt, right? And my shoes should def be flat so should I go with the skinny trousers after all??!

FolkGirl Fri 07-Feb-14 16:55:00

It depends. I don't ever wear heels. I wear ballet pumps or DMs and that's pretty much it!

What dress are you wearing? I usually weark skater type dresses and they look quite cute with DMs or ballet pumps and a cardigan. I don't really dress up for dates, as you can see grin

At least, the man I'm seeing seems to quite like it.

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Fri 07-Feb-14 17:00:06

I have an adorable skater dress & ballet pumps. Will try on

Jarlin Fri 07-Feb-14 17:03:04

green - Good luck tonight!
Can you wear boots with the dress?
I know some dresses look good with boots. Others not so good!

I struggle on dates with SlowBurner as he is only 5ft6 so it always has to be ballet type pumps or flat boots.

Jarlin Fri 07-Feb-14 17:06:00

crow in that case, I am glad you are going on some more dates. You deserve better!

Jarlin Fri 07-Feb-14 17:09:16

santa have you found us?! Am I right in thinking you have
a date tonight too?

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Fri 07-Feb-14 17:13:32

Adorable skater dress HAS NO SLEEVES and looks bad. Shame.

No flat boots unfortunately!

Hmm got 2 options:

Green Zara floral chic short dress w brown tights & flats

Grey lace cardigan with black Coast pencil skirt, black tights and flats

GreenRedBlueYellowPurple Fri 07-Feb-14 17:15:28

Or! Green jade trousers, low cut classy top with a blazer & flats
