So yeah, personally I recommend attempting a dating site, so long as you're not on there to locate a good guy who's the correct fit for you, to really date. Because if you don't expect that outcome, you might actually appreciate the encounter - meet a group of new people, find out about a group of new music, go to new places in town you've never tried 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 just get to know folks, for the benefit of getting to know them, because people are interesting even if they're not The One.

I really, really 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 guys are uneducated rednecks (I apologize if I'm offending anybody - but wailing it's accurate!!!) The odds are almost zero that some great guy is only going to appear in the woods while I'm hiking or wander into town trying to find guidance while I simply 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 remember you and nice to hear from you. Welcome BACK! I agree online dating is just another way of meeting people, assuming you're over the ex-husband, have some self esteem, borders, and take BR/Natalie with you when you go.

There is a weeding process either way. For me, what has been significant, whether I meet the guy in person or online and then in person, is I have to understand what I need. I have to have borders and apply them (so far so good). I have to have some self esteem (so far so good).
I've spent a bit of time cooling my jets and doing some soul searching after my last breakup and feel quite good today. I feel almost ready to date again. BUT.....I 've been wondering how much of what I've learned will survive my next dating encounter? It's definately easier to have borders in place when their is not much to challenge them. 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 do not understand where we are sometimes until we do a road test, right?

The 2nd and I built up a great rapport of 6wks - before we had even met. Huge mistake as when we met for the first date it was incredibly awkward to start with. I myself am a forgiving woman and would have been willing to try a 2nd date as I believe that after being out of the dating circuit for ages, it typically takes the 2nd date (max) to decide of you actually like a person.
