Checking in to hear all the gory details from handy

MyGastIsFlabbered Sun 28-Feb-16 19:28:09

Also marking place for Handy's further details and for any advice about the MrCS situation.

ThreeFrazzledFandangos Sun 28-Feb-16 19:29:01

WE NEED MORE DETAILS Handy!!!

Defo sounds like it went better than mine!

Handy - yay for a good date. Still want to know about the cockapoo hair, though!

Tanya - that is shit about Horse. What a fuckwit.

My dealbreakers :

Smoker
Heavy drinker
Beer gut (like Waving's ex, my ex has a massive belly, very, very off-putting)
None of this 'space camp' malarkey hmm
Would prefer a university education, but not essential if intelligent
No profile pictures of kids/pics with wives/girlfriends barely cropped out
No beards (stubble is fine)

Waves to the rest of the thread. Am a bit shagged out tired and can't keep up with all the messages.

Waving - I think MrM is a lets see how it goes (LSHIG) person. And I am an IDWAR (sub-type : I don't think). Chemistry is off-the-scale good. Good conversation. I like him.

BatshitCrazyWoman Sun 28-Feb-16 19:32:06

Oh and many moose burgers, with wide choice of sides and dips, served up last night/this morning blush Which may prove to be a mistake, but I think if they go after DTD then it doesn't matter if it's the 2nd or 22nd date. And I wanted to.

MrsRolandRat Sun 28-Feb-16 19:32:36

Gast would you like to date or pursue something with MrCS? And no one is out of your league!

MrsRolandRat Sun 28-Feb-16 19:33:13

What's moose burgers, please explain? Thanks.

BatshitCrazyWoman Sun 28-Feb-16 19:33:38

Gast - you're the prize, he's not out of your league!!

BatshitCrazyWoman Sun 28-Feb-16 19:33:59

moose burgers = sex, Roland.

SteadyHand Sun 28-Feb-16 19:42:07

Well Mr WTF was due at 7.30. He's not here yet, not massively late, but I'm beginning to think he's not coming...

BatshitCrazyWoman Sun 28-Feb-16 19:43:02

Steady, it's only 12 minutes ... there's still time

MyGastIsFlabbered Sun 28-Feb-16 19:44:31

I don't know if I actively want to pursue an actual relationship with MrCS but I want to know if he's dating/sleeping with others and whether he actually sees me as more than an available body. I guess I want him to think of me as a whole person and I'm really not sure he does, we don't message every day...this sounds bad doesn't it? I just don't know how to bring it up, most of our conversations consist of sexting. I can't help but feel I'm romanticising it because of what nearly happened last year, sort of seeing it as fate. I certainly like him a lot more than any of my other irons.

But okay, he's not worthy of me!!

SteadyHand Sun 28-Feb-16 19:45:00

I know, I sound unhinged! But after going quiet for days at a time even after making plans, I feel pretty insecure about the whole thing...

Gast why not just ask him what he's looking for? Be straight and see how he answers. Nothing ventured nothing gained. And hopefully his response will be the right answer and if not well at least you can move on.

BatshitCrazyWoman Sun 28-Feb-16 19:48:11

Waving, I think I would be a bit sarcastic (probably totally wrong) and say something like 'I'll let you get on with it, then. Good luck!'

Waving I think I'd be responding with the words "Bell End, Ta'ra for now"

CiaoVerona Sun 28-Feb-16 19:53:12

Waving That is priceless you really know how to attract themsmile

What the actual fuck, if he was that busy he'd not have opened the message never mind reply. What a dope.
