Ooh, Irish men are great. I'm trying to be enthusiastic about an Irish guy that seems to be keen. We met cycling. On paper, perfect. In reality, I just don't fancy him. I'm going on a third date to make sure.
Fingers crossed for a nice kiwi guy. Last time I was there, there were a few potentials but I was dating (me being totally blind to what a loser he actually was) Joe so I turned down some chances of guys I actually liked.
I know what you mean about the walls but I have found the more I see guys, the more open I am to it. I just try and stay in control of my feelings these days. Hurt protection I guess, until I am sure they are worthy of my feelings.
I am trying to decide to make room in my life/ my house for someone else. A little scary though. You remember that heart shaped freckle on the inside of my right arm? I still have it. The little line that ran through it initially has moved so now it seems to be just at the bottom of the heart.
I believe in signs. This one is a good one to me.

It's easy to whip up a profile, watch the messages pour in and message back but when it comes down to meeting and being vulnerable...that's a challenge for a lot of people. I know myself that I put my whole being into my last relationships with SDA Lady and it scares me to think I could become so involved emotionally with someone else only to realize down the road that it isn't gonna work. I loved her and probably still do in so many ways. There's no way of knowing whether you will have to face that pain again though. I guess the only way to find out is to reach out and see what happens. I had coffee with a lady in my last endeavor who had been divorced for 9 years (that was the emailing lady) and it turned out she pulled herself off the site and told me she just wasn't ready. Who really knows.
