Something Different

Ok.....
So I've decided to keep an On-Line diary now instead of the usual paper one that you keep under your bed or in your nightstand. Who knows maybe some of you can actually benefit from my experiences and words of wisdom, whereas in a diary no one ever reads it but you, and maybe your nosy roommate. ;-p

So a little background on me and what I will most likely be writing about on here. I am a 29 year old single female, never been married no kids. I have been single for 9 months now after being in a 3 year relationship. I can honestly say that in the past 3-4 months I have really gotten used to being single again and doing things for myself. It's been great, I've had many good times and laughs with my friends, but now they are all starting to "couple-up" once again so now I'm thinking it's time for me to get out there and date again. I've dated a couple of guys in the past 9 months but nothing more then 3 or 4 dates. I guess I just wasn't ready. I went through my "bad girl" phase of going out on Friday nights and getting a bit "tipsy" and making out with a guy and even hooked up with an ex from years ago. But, I've gotten that out of my system and now I'm ready for substance. I want to spend time with a guy getting to know him and him getting to know me before we get physical. This will be challenging for me since I am a very sexual person and I often give into my animal urges ;-p. But this is a new me, after all I'll be 30 in May, I need to break those old bad habits.

So I've been trying out the Match.com thing and so far it has been a pretty positive experience. I've talked to a hand full of really great guys, even met a couple for drinks. I haven't met prince charming yet, but I'm optimistic that he's out there. One thing I find a bit annoying about Match is that some guys are so vague about their intentions. Me, I'm very up front and honest about who I am and what I'm looking for. Just a little tip guys, if you are trying there on-line dating thing, in your e-mails ask questions about who we are and what are our interests etc. Don't' send one and two line e-mails and then expect us to give you our phone #'s or ask for a date. Come on....

So I'll tell you about my latest potential date on Match. We e-mailed a few times, great e-mails and then chatted on-line for over an hour one night and then exchanged #'s and talked n the phone a couple of times and then set a date which was supposed to happen last week. Unfortunately he canceled a few hours before the date, had a personal emergency. We talked he seemed genuinely sorry for canceling and hopes to reschedule only it won't be able to happen for another month due to his work load and a 2-1/2 week trip out of the country he will be going on. So, I don't know, maybe we'll get together when he gets back, maybe not. It's been a week since I've talked to him. Doesn't sound too good huh?

So there is another possibility that I've been e-mailing with now for about 2 weeks. It's going slow, but his e-mails are pretty good, seems to have a genuine interest in getting to know me. He hasn't asked for my # yet though, and I must say, it's time. I need to hear his voice, see how the phone conversation goes very soon or I may loose interest. I think I have a problem with being patient. ;-p

So those are the basics. I plan on writing mostly about my dating life on here but I'm sure there will be some stuff about my girlfriends and work experiences at times as well.

Please feel free to comment on my Blog Entries and give me advice or ask me for advise.

Over and out,
