woop! well done Miranda!

Here be the dating commandments as posted by the lovely WFF

1. Develop a thick skin;
2. Do not invest emotionally too soon;
3. It's all BS until it actually happens;
4. Trust your gut instinct;
5. If it is not fun, stop.

I have a first date on Thursday, I need advice, I am not sure how it is going to go. We have been chatting for a week and have lots of things in common, especially more unusual aspects of our lifestyles, so its going to be really nice to meet and chat on that basis alone. But he has said in some of his OKcupid questions that he is turned off by overweight people and im overweight. I have told him this and have sent a picture and he has said I Look lovely.
Its making me a little unsure if I should actually go or not.

Morning .. Marking my spot ..

Got a 2nd date (dinner) on Sunday with MrFixit .. Not sure I fancy him .. i will decide after Sunday .. He had sent me a ranting email about a committee he volunteers for (red flag?) and then finished off with 'but I'm really looking forward to Sunday ..

There is hee haw else on okcupid .. I think I'll need to set up a profile on POF again

KirstyWirsty Tue 26-Mar-13 07:39:16

yellow don't worry .. He knows what you look like and likes it!!

MirandaWest Tue 26-Mar-13 07:44:16

Morning everyone smile

Need to get up and get DC up and hope the house copes with an extra two people in the morning...

Mr Nice currently just past Greenland smile

KirstyWirsty Tue 26-Mar-13 07:48:50

miranda I am feeling butterflies on your behalf .. It's a wonderful feeling when you know you are going to see someone you've been missing

lubeybooby Tue 26-Mar-13 07:53:45

me too OWW

I have some major flirtation going on out of the blue with a friend who handily is staying over at my house this weekend with some other visitors. Things sort of happened with us before but not the whole way too drunk ... anyway I thought he didn't want to bother again but seems I was wrong. Weirdly he started it too despite my current libido levels.

lubeybooby Tue 26-Mar-13 07:54:29

Oooh Miranda not long now!

Flipper924 Tue 26-Mar-13 08:04:42

Hello, new thread!

Hope you have a lovely reunion, Miranda.

I'm off out tonight to a regular Tuesday night thing, and will be flirting with my married friend who says lovely things (and also plays rugby). It's usually me and 5 or 6 blokes, so it's kind of my job to do flirting. Keeps my hand in, I think.

ike1 Tue 26-Mar-13 08:14:30

Enjoy the reunion Miranda!

ike1 Tue 26-Mar-13 08:15:33

Lubes ...the itch might get scratched then, eh?

VelvetSpoon Tue 26-Mar-13 08:17:48

Ooh new thread! Happy tuesday everyone smile

I went to sleep before 12 last night (first time in forever) and feel in particularly good spirits today as a result.

Hoping today will be a good day for us all!

lubeybooby Tue 26-Mar-13 08:22:43

Yeah ike... I'll try and hang on til then rather than exploring PoF again... <ties knees together>

lubeybooby Tue 26-Mar-13 08:23:40

<bites fist>

MirandaWest Tue 26-Mar-13 08:27:10

He has to change planes in London (pity the current plane couldn't divert here but isn't too long really). Should see him in about 7 hours I think grin And despite his 18 year old DS being there, we will do snogging with tongues and everything gringrin

ike1 Tue 26-Mar-13 08:27:34

Its a good feeling isnt it Velv! Yeah leave POF for those desperate moments Lubes....

WarmFuzzyFun Tue 26-Mar-13 08:28:27

Morning all, well, well, well, a new thread lovely jubbly.

Lubey, get organised, you know how to put together some sweet plans woman...grin, although OWW may take your crown of being super organised soon, the best way to get over a fella is to get under a fella.

Miranda envy my first one of this thread envy

I need to get laid, a week is a long time in my books.

'Three, is the magic number' sings WFF...(you all know what I mean?smile)

Lurkers, come out, come out, wherever you are...give us a twirl, tell us your news.

Hesistant new comers, come on, post, you know you want to.

Yeah, still a little high spirited over in WFF's world...grin

ike1 Tue 26-Mar-13 08:28:32

To the sound of exaggerated retching noises Miranda hahahah...

ike1 Tue 26-Mar-13 08:30:04

We dont do twirling Miranda ...tut tut ...waggy finger....that nonsense is for middle aged men...

lubeybooby Tue 26-Mar-13 08:41:35

WFF I am organised... apart from how to work out how to put me and him in my bedroom alone without raising eyebrows and causing much nudging and winking... when I've already said it's the biggest room so a couple of air beds can go in there to avoid squashing everyone into my daughters room and on the sofas.


Maybe I should give up my room totally and formulate a sofa sex plan... which could backfire if anyone wants to stay up later than us.

Oh, arsebiscuits. Heeeelp.
