.. am fed up of meeting timewasters, dregs, etc surely there must be someone out there for me????????????

singledadofthree Sat 29-Nov-08 18:37:10

yeah...my thoughts exactly.

ShyBaby Sat 29-Nov-08 19:33:14

I'd just like to meet one who didn't keep bitching about me online. Seems to be the done thing these days.

singledadofthree Sat 29-Nov-08 21:07:51

dont do much in the way of onlinery.

tho this place is an occaisonal sanctuary.

ShyBaby Sat 29-Nov-08 21:22:49

You are right...we can slag off our exes to our hearts content on here unbeknown to them grin almost.

singledadofthree Sat 29-Nov-08 23:44:21

ex's do seem to excel at slagging off - must be a woman thing - and i should know, have had enough scorn for a lifetime.

mrsmortenharket Mon 01-Dec-08 09:22:59

not just women sd, according to dd's dad i am a slag, slut, who has no concern for dd (yes, x, that's why i left you, you tw*t), ad infinitum ...

grin
it's just jealousy on his part.
i ahve been asked out shock

<<i feel sick ...>>

MascaraOHara Mon 01-Dec-08 10:12:04

tis the season for it, it would seem!!

how exciting grin

mrsmortenharket Mon 01-Dec-08 14:40:03

grin
drought for nearly a year and now 3 all at once grin two have sent phone numbers and one is a local lad

mrsmortenharket Tue 02-Dec-08 15:59:04

he was timewaster! glad i found out before i actually met him.

mrsmharkTHEHERALDANGELSSINGet Wed 10-Dec-08 17:18:36

not the local lad lol!
had his phone number today grin and have arranged date for monday, he is booking the restaurant

oh and i still feel sick!

MrsSnape Wed 10-Dec-08 17:23:23

I feel the same. I get talking to someone and it goes alright for so long and then all of a sudden they break contact and I never hear from them again. It's so off-putting.

IllegallyBrunette Wed 10-Dec-08 17:40:47

I have, yet again, given up on online dating, it doesn't work for me.

Seeing as people keep telling me that you never know what is just aropund the corner, I am now working on the assumption that one day I will just walk smack bang right into a lovely new bloke wink

mrsmharkTHEHERALDANGELSSINGet Wed 10-Dec-08 17:41:59

grin

allgonebellyup Wed 10-Dec-08 19:19:06

i give up too!!!

wintercitylover Wed 10-Dec-08 19:46:36

I think that this time of year is not good for online stuff.

Or perhaps I am projecting my feelings about this time of year onto it.

Some of my 'regulars' (who I talk to) have gone a bit quiet although one has resurfaced today. May meet him next week.

But I feel quite weary of it all. Last night logged onto MSN two people said hi but I was so tired and weary I just logged off again. Don't feel very sparkling atm!

One of them sent me an email today sort of complaining how hard I was to get to talk to. So I mailed him back saying I had had a cold, was tired, busy at work and had done nothing yet for Xmas!!!

And also felt like saying I am working out how to afford it and also get through January!!

He probably thought that I sounded a whingy old bag LOL

I am also very fed up of my own non availability in the sense that I could only go out on a date every other saturday at other times would have to get babysitter which is too xpensive at the moment.

Can do a lunch I suppose.

This weather just makes me want to hibernate.

I will resurface in the New Year as a happier person.

Sorry for whinge

wintercitylover Thu 11-Dec-08 11:50:01

feeling a bit more positive today - might be meeting a long term contact for lunch on monday.
grin

And the guy I whinged said he 'would wait for me to get in touch'!! LOL

crazyloon1 Thu 11-Dec-08 11:57:26

Hmm. Well I've been waiting ages and ages, feeling like that. And suddenly I have had several people interested at once. I reckon it's in the stars. grin

Someone who came to fix the house

Someone else who came to fix stuff

And finally....an old flame who was always just a friend but I've fallen in love with him over the past 3 years, and he;s been with someone else, and I think finally he might be available again soon...trying to not get hopes up but the other day he was very, kind of promising.

You do never know - but I'd stay well clear of online dating. It's hard enough and dodgy enough when you've known the person for years, let alone a complete stranger.

How I wish my family would sort out an arranged marriage for me...they have better judgment than I do!!

mrsmHARKTHEHERALDANGELSSINGet Fri 12-Dec-08 11:00:25

wcl, do you or dc know any neighbours well enough for them to babysit for free? i started talking to some more neighbours (i recognised her accent!) and more importantly, dd likes and trusts her too adn she is worth her weight in gold!

wintercitylover Fri 12-Dec-08 11:07:56

Not the neighbours but one ds2's friends mum would babysit on odd nights for free. I then have her DS sleepover.

My neighbours are really lovely - we lend each other onions, cooking ingredients etc but not that close.

mrsmHARKTHEHERALDANGELSSINGet Fri 12-Dec-08 11:10:17

maybe invite one or two round for xmas drinks small party?

wintercitylover Fri 12-Dec-08 12:47:32

hmmm we had a house party in the summer and I did invite them but it's not really like that here, - people are friendly enough but tend not to be over over friendly with neighbours, we have some degree of anonmymity which I actually quite like tbh, they all work with the exception of one who has a toddler.

I am quite happy with that really. I do have someone to babysit but she is DS2 childminder and of course I have to pay her.

I wouldn't feel that comfortable expecting a neighbour to babysit for free unless I could reciprocate in some way. I do have that type of arrangement with other mums for daytime things.

mrsmHARKTHEHERALDANGELSSINGet Sun 14-Dec-08 13:04:55

maybe you could do that? reciprocate i meanx

wintercitylover Sun 14-Dec-08 17:41:47

Thanks yes I do understand the meaning of reciprocation.

I know I sound like I am being obstructive but on thinking about it I don't want to actually get that pally with a neighbour. It is just not like that here, tbh I would not like it if it were.

We are friendly but not in each others pockets.

I would much rather ask my friends.

I expect it sounds like I am very unfriendly but that's not the case. Just like to keep a slight distance from my neighbours.
