a new relationship, it would be a sell out the world over.

Can anyone think of a better feeling than that butterflies in stomach, walking on air, head in the clouds sensation?

Apologises for name change but didn't want to be judged, just after opinions smile

i wouldn't want it.

i never cared for that feeling.

frumpygrumpyhasPMT Tue 22-Jul-08 20:34:06

Yup, I'd buy it grin Love that feeling grin

nickytwotimes Tue 22-Jul-08 20:36:01

Oh no.
I hate it.
Such insecurity tied up with it.

expatinscotland Tue 22-Jul-08 20:38:02

I agree, nicky. Also a waste of time, IME. I wasted so much time and energy on that new relationship stuff.

No, thanks.

Janos Tue 22-Jul-08 20:38:41

Oh blimey no! I associate the start of a relationship with anxiety and feeling worried and all that do-they-like-me-as-much-as-I-like-them-aaargh-ism

<shudders at memories of early love affairs>>

I like this old-farts-sitting-around-relaxed-together stage, personally.

KeepItPrivate Tue 22-Jul-08 20:41:03

but you are not having a new relationship expatinscotland, just the lovely feeling that comes with it. Surely you'd like that?

expatinscotland Tue 22-Jul-08 20:41:18

I do as well, nicky. It suits my lazy arse nature, too.

If something were to happen to DH, I honestly just couldn't be arsed to date again.

I really couldn't.

Been there, done that.

expatinscotland Tue 22-Jul-08 20:41:54

No, I never found that feeling lovely, Keep, because for me, it was usually a false feeling in the long run.

KeepItPrivate Tue 22-Jul-08 20:42:10

It must just be me then, maybe I'm modelling my rose tinted specs hmm

frumpygrumpyhasPMT Tue 22-Jul-08 20:46:32

Well I love that feeling. The one that when you re-think a moment you get the tummy turn bit........<<sigh>> I have had a lot of those feelings.....ALL BLOODY GOOD grin

Ledodgy Tue 22-Jul-08 20:47:54

I want the feeling that I used to get when going out of an evening wondering who i'd meet or if my crush would be there.

KeepItPrivate Tue 22-Jul-08 20:53:34

Oh yes Ledodgy, that one too!

prettyfly1 Tue 22-Jul-08 21:13:51

uuurrgrgggg nope. much rather the warmth comfort and security of a long term thing. the only bit thats fun after a few months is sex but at first even that can be hit and miss. nope give me long term any day.

expatinscotland Tue 22-Jul-08 21:14:56

I want that feeling of buzzing when you've had a few glasses of wine, but before you have too much and are just drunk.

Now that kind of pill I'd pay money for.

Snaf Tue 22-Jul-08 21:15:51

Oh yes, ledodgy, that was the best one! I miss that feeling, definitely. So exciting.

Yes Frumpy, I love that feeling too. I still get it now after many long years of marriage. It's lovely to remember a moment from the night before and get that feeling in your tummy! Especially if the moment you're remembering is one that was unexpected (you know, that kiss on the back of your neck when he gets home from work,and when he says he's just going to get changed and have a lie down and would you like to go with him!At six o'clock when you should be cooking dinner). Oh yes, a great feeling, but I wouldn't like to take a pill to get it, because I love what starts those feelings far too much!
