Lol you are giving me encouragement to go on! It's quite exhausting dating though. That's why I avoided online as all the messaging, I just don't have the time or investment so early on in a 'relationship', I don't know what the term would be. I have to meet and connect with someone and then I am happy to message if I like them.

I just can't imagine why someone wants to text constantly to someone they don't know? What do they ask you?

Oh god, to be honest I can't really remember it's so inane. Off the top of my head I've had,

'how was your day?' ok, that's fine but then they want intricacies when there really is just nothing to say unless you were there. Or too much for a text!

'What kind of guys do you like?'
'What are you doing?'
'Why are you single?'
'What are you up to at the moment'

Some of them are clearly over-step-the-markers! The 'what are you doings' are annoying, I don't mind a 'how's thing's today?' or 'How're you?' but not what am I doing. It feels intrusive.

I've deleted them all or I could give you an example. The

'Buy anythink nice babe' is the one that really sticks out!! wink Ugh!

I spent over a week emailing with a woman i'd met online. She asked me things like "what did you learn from your divorce?" and "Tell me about your faith" Guys are a little more simple...babe lol!

That guy is out there for you. Maybe he just doesn't know he is looking for you yet. smile. You are such a wonderful person. I hope he shows up when you are ready for him.

I'm ready I'm ready smile smile

No actually, after Christmas would be much more convenient wink

I really hope it happens soon. I mean, I'm am fine on my own, generally a very happy person, but it would be really nice to meet someone nice now.

Not like the other people I have been out with post divorce... there have been some right losers. Some I knew at the outset were losers, others were slower to reveal their loser behaviour. smile

I'm going to New Zealand for 2 weeks at Christmas to scope out jobs for next year. Maybe a nice kiwi guy will sweep me off my feet.

Or alternatively my friend met a guy on EasyJet and was preggers 5 months later. Hoping I find more romance than that wink

I would hope for a kiwi guy. smile. I can't shake the Irishman I met all those many moons ago. I wouldn't mind a kiwi or Aussie either. I am still not pushing. I have recently realized that I have my walls up still. I thought I was ready but still scared of getting hurt. So maybe not as ready as I thought.

Crossing my fingers for you.
