Haha I'm an idiot :S Someone is interested and I just realised I need to put money on this account and I won't have any until Friday. I'm so not asking anyone and bringing up why I need it so I'll have to wait it out *facepalm*

Let's just call it playing hard-to-get blush.gif

I also googled speed dating last night and it looks kinda fun. I'll get back to you when I have more updates guys smile.gif

If I was single, and looking to meet someone I would definitely do this: charity work by singles.

I met my DH through RSVP, but I did get quite a few creepy "I'm in town on business on the weekend, let's hook up" replies as well. As with all things, it can work and it can also not work!

My bestie also met her DH through Speed dating. She was single & wanted a fun night out, not really expecting anything!!!!

Depending on your interests, perhaps night classes, gym, sporting groups, book clubs, anywhere that men go to really!

Good luck & can't wait to hear any more updates.

I'm loving all of the input here smile.gif

Also....yay I joined RSVP wub.gif blush.gif

I found this one guy one there who is pretty spunky and also seems awesome, so I've sent him a message, this should be interesting! Wish me luck lol.............eeep! ph34r.gif


well done! I am another who'd recommend the Internet. I found myself single after many years and not wanting to do the pub thing to meet people.
For me, it was a good way to meet people and get to know them in a safe way. Like most, I met some duds, some oddballs and a couple that are still friends, and of course my DH!
Just remember to be careful when, and if, you are going to meet someone.

Best advice though is to have some fun meeting new people, however that may be. Love will sometimes find you in the most unlikely places!!

I met Ian at work. We didnt work closely toghether, so it wasnt like we were in each others pockets.

Several girls at work have met their partners either by doing the speed dating thing or internet based dating. Why not?

I saw a story on Oprah recently where this woman just decided she was going to meet Mr Right and she would do what it took to do it. She signed up to a dating website and set herself the task of actually meeting 100 guys and if she hadnt found him then she was going to give up. She met him at 87!!!!

Do keep us posted!

I'm another who met my DH on RSVP! There has been some really great advice so far. In my experience, I found it invaluable to build a friendship first, and let it grow from there.

Good luck! Looking forward to your updates smile.gif

it's so great to see you back here again B, and i no longer feel like the only single person here!

I am another one recommending internet dating, I honestly didn't think that I would use it myself until I was a bit older than what I am now, but I got tired of the things you mentioned, boys after one thing only.

I met a couple of people, and they were nice enough, just not people I could see myself being with, until I met the guy I am currently seeing. We've been together for about 6 weeks now, and I owe it all to oasis active!

I like the fact that you can read about them up front and see if you have similar ideas and ideals and then chat online, and then meet up if you like everything so far.

keep us posted anyway!!!!

I met Cameron on RSVP babe, can't recommend it highly enough!
I was also on those free sites, but found myself being hounded by guys who just wanted the casual thing, so I quickly got out of that and stuck with paid-dating laugh.gif

I stayed true to myself and kepy my standards pretty high. I figured that seeing as the man I was going to marry at the time was a then complete stranger, (and especially having Logan too), I wasn't willing to open up my life to anyone who was less than worthy. I think I met about 4 people before Cameron and as soon as I laid eyes on him I knew he was it wub.gif There were not games, no bullshit... from the moment we met, we considered ourselves in a relationship and treated it as such.

That being said though, one of my friends (who I am trying to distance myself from, but that's a whole other issue!) has her standards set ridiculously high and won't budge (and 4 years later is still single)... so I suppose their is a happy medium between what you deem as realistic and having a mould set out for someone that may be unattainable, so it's important in that regard that you remain level-headed wink.gif

Good Luck babe, can't wait to hear all about this guy!! xxx

PS. I ALMOST didn't even meet Cameron, I was 90% certain that I was going to bail because when chatting, etc he was so quiet and wasn't as chatty as I was (I remember sitting there one night, waiting almost 5mins for a reply from him going "WTF?!"). I seriously thought that he wasn't interested in me. As soon as we met though, he was nervous as hell (cuteness!!) because he really liked my profile and he thought that he'd scare me away by being keen (which is kinda right, lol!)... so I also think it's important to just take a bit of a risk every now and then... you never know!!

RSVP sounds like the way to go then smile.gif

This new guy seems awesome so far, and it turns out he works nearby with special needs patients a few times a week.

We moved convo over to msn but haven't met yet - but we seem to have a lot in common and the same interests and ideals, and I still think he's a bit of a spunk to boot happy.gif

I might take it slow at least for the next few weeks as we both have exams (we do almost the same uni subjects at different unis lol) but I'll let you know how it goes.

It's tough because I'm still unsure how I feel about my other ex (although he has moved on now and is an @sshole) and I hate that feeling because I want to make sure I can give 100% of myself in my next relationship. Feelings can be very frustrating. I'm probably just being paranoid but I really don't want to let the next guy down if I can't be there mentally. Idk, is this a normal feeling?

Anyway I think it'll be fine and in a few more weeks things will be better still smile.gif Megan you give me hope and I've missed you! I think I really just needed some time away from this place to find myself. I was so messed up mentally by everything that went down and being surrounded by wedding stuff was not helping. I feel like I've grown a lot now. I hope so tongue.gif

Jaclyn I didn't know you were single, I've been so out of touch! I sent you an apron ages ago, didn't I? I have to get back into the swing of things blush.gif Your new guy sounds really promising, congrats and best of luck to you xx

This place is so quiet now - there used to be about 10 pages of new posts a day! Still, it's nice to see a lot of the regulars are still around smile.gif

I feel like it's taken me this long to grow into this place - I came in here at 20 not having a clue what I really wanted and now I'm back at 25 knowing myself better smile.gif

Getting space can never be a bad thing hun wink.gif

I have missed you too wub.gif I needed some space I think from all the negativity - when you try so hard to move on from areas of your life that are/were falling apart, and there are people who only think of you as the one thing that you're not, it's very hard. So I made a clean break - I stopped associating from everyone from here (except the very few who have become so close IRL I forget that this is where I met them!) and got my life back on track. And I've done exactly that. I've married a man who still makes me feel like pinching myself, I feel like the luckiest woman in the whole world. And my son *swoon*... so things are very good right now - hopefully in a couple of months I am not regretting the return wink.gif

Welcome back to i-do!

How is everything going?

I met Simon at work. We were both in relationships with other people at the time, and he was the shy, dorky, nerdy, nice kind of guy. We had the odd conversation here and there.

We both ended up single at around the same time. Mutual friends thought we'd be a perfect match, but he just wasn't my type. My last 2 boyfriends were footy players, real blokey blokes. Simon was the complete opposite. However, I decided what the hey? And we went on a date. I am so fricken glad I gave him a chance! Not only was he a nerd (which he still is, but I LOVE that about him) but he was sweet, funny, generous, & over time we found out we had so much in common!

My advice, going off my experience, is that even if some guys don't initially seem your type, maybe give them a chance? You may be surprised!


My happy little boy!
