I wouldn't want to venture into the dating scene today. Must be difficult, because according to radio broadcast I listened to, the failure rate for marriages and relationships now sits at around 87%. Was so shocking to hear such statistics.I will stick with the current hubby—
I had been dating this other guy I had met online. We lived two or three hours away from each other. We had talked a lot and had been on about three or four dates. Suddenly, it got harder to get a message back from him, so I asked him if he needed a break to deal with things (his dad had some health problems, then his mom).
He said yes (to my surprise) so I assumed he was doing the slow fade and didn’t want to see me anymore.
Anyway, I went back online and started talking to guys again. Talked to a few, wasn’t finding anyone I especially liked. Then I saw (now) hubby’s picture.
My (now) hubby initiated contact and we had a good conversation. He was about to go out of town, so we didn’t meet for about two weeks. We talked quite often and made a date for when he returned. Expectations were high.
Well, we finally went on a date and it was terrible. So bad, in fact, that when he walked me to my car he took out his phone and asked me whether he should delete my number. I told him yes.
But I didn’t delete his, and a few days later I text him.
We went on another date and it went much better. I really enjoyed his company, and decided to give it another shot. Turns out, we had a lot in common and enjoyed each other’s company.
Oh, and that other guy? He called me a few weeks later. Seems he actually just had some stuff he needed to take care of....
I, personally, loved dating. And I loved online dating.I wouldn't want to venture into the dating scene today. Must be difficult, because according to radio broadcast I listened to, the failure rate for marriages and relationships now sits at around 87%. Was so shocking to hear such statistics.
I've thought about the kid thing a few times, and how not having kids of my own would have made it harder for me (I think) in meeting someone with kids, even though I love kids. Just think it would or could make things hard.I, personally, loved dating. And I loved online dating.
Lots of people hate the process, but not me.
Subsequent marriages are harder because of children from previous marriages, though.
Yes, she lived with me for a short while. I didn't get mad when she left for the friend because I was glad she was leaving. Liked her but was VERY high maintenance and not in the way most think. She is bi-polar and doesn't like to take her medications. She was almost harder to deal with when she was manic than when the depression hit. Wasn't mad with him because, looking back on it, I knew what was going to happen before she ever moved in.even - I think - lived together for a short time. She left him for a friend of his and it's a tribute to how nice a guy my Jabber is that he remained friends with them both!
Oh yeah! That happened! That was SO funny...I'm sure to this day they'd be mortified if they realized what they'd done!Well, just thought about the practice dinner and my parents saying how happy they were that I finally brought someone decent home.....with the ex who had introduced us sitting right there!
Mine was shockingly old school and unexpected.
It was a blind date set up by an elderly person related to my husband. We went out on a whim to appease her.
It is a favorite story of the entire family.
We were engaged six months later.
It’s another one of BOOK potential!!!!
