Very nervous but very excited too! He sounds too good to be true and is absolutely gorgeous! And it turns out he drops his DC's off at his ex's house every sat - and she lives in the same village as me!! Weird!
(He has full custody).

Sounds good! I found one like that last summer, and we are still together.

Hope all goes well. You will have to report back after your date!

Pinkchampagne · 14/04/2008 08:54

How did the date go?

goingbonkers · 22/04/2008 20:27

Hi - thanks for the messages. I've not been able to reply until now as I broke my laptop charger and had to send it away to be repaired!

So, the chat and the date went really well and we are now officially a couple!!!!! I've got a BOYFRIEND Woooo Hoooooo!!!!

I met his DC's at the weekend and we got on really well. Taking all of them out together next weekend which should be good.

I think I've found the perfect man! Start looking for hats ladies!

Anyone else had any luck in love......?

OP posts:
Pinkchampagne · 22/04/2008 20:32

Wow, you have met his DC already!
Really pleased it all went so well for you, and hope this is the start of a beautiful friendship!
Keep us updated!

goingbonkers · 22/04/2008 20:37

It wasn't planned that I was meeting the DC's but his ex had them for the day and rang to say that she wasn't well so he had to pick them up. We had only been on our (3rd) date for about half an hour so he suggested we pick them up and take them to a playcentre.

I'd just about given up on ever finding a man and I certainly didn't expect to find anyone on the internet. I was doing it out of curiosity more than anything so it's a bit of a shock!

Watch this space.......!

Wow, you have been on 3 dates since Sat?! That is pretty good going!!
Tomorrow will be the first time I have seen my man since Sat, and we have been together 8 months!

Hope all goes well for you.

Pinkchampagne · 22/04/2008 21:15

Sorry, just realised that it has been well over a wek since your first date! I have lost track of time with the school holidays!
3 dates already, sounds like pretty good stuff all the same!

goingbonkers · 22/04/2008 22:04

It feels like we've known eachother for years. We talk every night for over an hour and text all day! He's popping over tomorrow while he's working 'from home' ahem!! Then he comes over to spend my lunch break with me on a friday. Bless him, he has changed the time he takes his lunch hour so it fits in with what I'm doing so he can call me!

Have fun with your man tomorrow, pinkchampagne. Anything nice planned?
