So yeah, personally I would recommend trying a dating website, provided that you are not on there to find a good guy who is the right fit for you, to really date. Because if you do not expect that outcome, you might actually appreciate the encounter - meet a group of new people, find out about a bunch of new music, go to new places in town you have never attempted before, get some funny stories. Because then you will learn a lot about people in general and yourself in particular. Because then you will learn to chill out and only get to know individuals, for the benefit of getting to know them, because individuals are interesting even if they are not The One.

I really, truly don't want to have to resort to on-line dating, but I see no other way to meet someone appropriate because I live in this very small town where the only unattached men are uneducated rednecks (I apologize if I am offending anybody - but wailing it's accurate!!!) The chances are virtually zero that some great man is only going to appear in the woods while I am trekking or wander into town looking for direction while I just happen to be biking by or trip over my feet while I'm sitting having coffee in the cafe... nah, ain't gonna happen.

Hi cc, I recall you and nice to hear from you. Welcome BACK! I concur online dating is merely another way of meeting people, assuming you're over the ex-husband, have some self-esteem, boundaries, and take BR/Natalie with you when you go. That would be true even if you met a guy in person, right? I really don't see much of a difference between starting online and then meeting in person vs. starting out in person. That is a weeding process either way. For me, what has been important, whether I meet the man in person or online and then in person, is I have to understand what I need. I 've to have boundaries and apply them (so far so good). I 've to get some self esteem (so far so good).
I have spent a bit of time cooling my jets and doing some soul searching after my last break up and feel pretty good today. I feel almost prepared to date again.

Will I maintain my boundaries or get swept up into la la land? Chalk this latest fast forward insanity you experienced upward as a BR 'pop quiz'. You got out as well as passed. Can you reflect, learn and do even better....yep, but we don't understand where we are sometimes until we do a road test, right? A couple of weeks is preferable to a month or two, and way much better than several years. Change takes time. Taking chances and learning from them is how we move forward. You did good.

The 2nd and I built up a great connection of 6wks - before we had even met. Huge error as when we met for the first date it was unbelievably difficult to begin with. I myself am a forgiving woman and would have been willing to attempt a 2nd date as I consider that after being out of the dating circuit for ages, it usually takes the 2nd date (max) to decide of you actually like a person.

After telling me how hot and stunning I was on the night of the date as I was returning home, he went cold turkey on me for a number of days.

Needless to say pur first meeting was - passionate with no full scale hog. The following weekend it all neglected on the physical section and between a wedding and two funerals (one marriage and funeral his side and one funeral my side) he had gone from supposedly liking me enough to take himself away of eharmony (or so I thought) and the other girl he dated before me wasn't his kind to deciding that I was not his kind, dating and desiring to be with someone else and my having to find out - again through texting his rather self that he no longer wanted to date me.
