I wasn't even expecting to, but it seems that they were certain I would. One person even said 'are you sure'

Hmm well, after 2 years of nothing, I think i'd remember if I suddenly got lucky.

Did you pull at that wedding nutty? grin Sorry!
Maybe they knew someone had their eye on you?

lou33 Tue 26-Aug-08 19:31:08

the main thing is you had fun, which you did

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:36:37

No, they knew I had my eye on someone, but I had already explained beforehand that nothing would happen.

I did have a fab time yes, but would be lying if I said I wasn't slightly dissapointed that I didn't even get chatted up or anything.

Nevermind though.

Still waiting for the pics to go up on the website. Wish they'd hurry up.

you should make the first move if you like someone one day maybe?

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:39:48

Have to admitt to dissapearing to the loo half way through the few slow songs that they played, as I looked like a right lemon sat there doing nowt.

charliecat Tue 26-Aug-08 19:40:09

Aww Like Lou says maybe you need to do the chatting up, or maybe not chatting up, just the first move in a conversation that may lead elsewhere..

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:41:00

Well there is no point with this particular person Lou, as I already know they aren't interested.

Not sure me making the first move is something that would ever happen anyway tbh.

charliecat Tue 26-Aug-08 19:42:09

I would have felt like a lemon too. You have been very very brave doing the whole BM thing you know.

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:42:42

I have just forgotten how to do any of it.

Mind you, not sure I ever did know. I met xp on the CB radio, so that was easy, felt like I already knew him by the time we met.

charliecat Tue 26-Aug-08 19:44:01

Surely thats todays internet dating.

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:44:51

I did enjoy it, and I'd do it again.

My dad said I looked like a princess anyway smile. Mind you that was after he txt me on the morning saying 'hope u get your tits and ass into your dress ok' shock LOL.

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:45:15

I think it is CC, perhaps that is why I am so wary.

lou33 Tue 26-Aug-08 19:46:35

i think the thing to do is not see it as chatting someone up , but as just engaging someone in conversation

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:49:11

I just no good at it Lou.

The person I like did come and speak to me as soon as he got there and that was fine, he asked how i was, i asked how work had gone cos I knew he'd had a problem with them giving him the time off etc, and then that was it he went to get some food. I was relieved cos I don't know what I'd have said next.

Did feel quite stupid later on as I walked back into the room as he was walking out and he winked at me, and I smiled and looked at the sodding floor.

charliecat Tue 26-Aug-08 19:50:13

God it sounds like he likes you.

lou33 Tue 26-Aug-08 19:51:03

i agree with cc

disregard his gender and chat like you would casually to a female friend

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:57:24

Nope he don't. Well he does, but not enough.

charliecat Tue 26-Aug-08 19:58:38

If he does you can work on that surely?

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 19:59:53

Nope too complicated.

A) he lives too far away

b) he doesn't want to take on 3 kids

c) it just wouldn't work.

He did admitt that he liked me, and said he wished we'd got together years ago, but we didn't so thats that.

lou33 Tue 26-Aug-08 20:05:59

i think it should be him who decides if he is prepared to do those things nutty

but also dont you think even if it was a relationship that lasted a few months it would be good for you?

do you have to assume the man you get involved with is going to be forever and take a fatherly role in your kids lives?

TillyScoutsmum Tue 26-Aug-08 20:08:33

How did it go though IB ?? Assume you got down the aisle without passing out with nerves ? smile Don't forget to come back and show us some pics please

IllegallyBrunette Tue 26-Aug-08 20:44:58

He did decide Lou. It was him who told me it was a no no, cos of the kids and the distance, I didn't ask him.

I don't assume that the next man I meet will be in my life forever no, and I don't expect them to be a father to my kids, but to me there is no point in having a relationhip with someone who knows that they would never ever be inteested in being a fulltime part of mine and my kids lives. It wouldn't be much of a relationship if I had to keep the two seperate until the relationship reached it's inevitable death.

I don't think a relationship with him, where I knew that it was going to come to an end would be good for me at all, I think it would just about finnish me off.

I did enjoy it though TS, and managed to walk down the asile without any major mishaps. I did develop the shakes though LOL. Pics will be posted as soon as I manage to get some smile
