So I was at this anniversary party yesterday for the academic bridging program I attended and anyhoo, a nice gentleman chatted with me for a while and when I left, gave me his business card and asked for mine (but I don't have one). Should I take this as a sign I should contact him? I am soooooo rusty with these things. But I think maybe he's interested?

Yes! Call him. He wouldn't give you his number for any other reason.

^Awesome, thanks! I have emailed him a short message saying how nice it was to meet him (his e-mail was on his business card, too) so we'll see what happens next.

Pretty sure that dude didn't mean to make that full nuddy body shot (including face) public when he was uploading it, judging by how fast he hid his profile after *bleaches eyeballs*.

The dating-two-people thing finally came to an end and no one got hurt. :) In other news, the roller derby goddess is my special lady friend now. ("Just two ladies, doing lady things.") She's hilarious, adores everything I cook for her, and tonight I'm coming along to her derby practice. (If you never hear from me again, it's not a malicious ex-lover, I probably broke my skull/arm/leg.)

Oh and something I never realized before, but I apparently do find it important that she's as much into my cat as I am. She adores Moos just as much as I do, despite the fact that she's actually allergic to cats. :)

Woohoo! Special lady friend!

I went on another date. I don't know! I just don't know. It wasn't horrible, it was actually fine, but I feel like first dates just won't ever compare to my first date with my last ex. But maybe it was that exciting because it was New Years? I don't know. Maybe someday I'll have a date like that one, or maybe I'm just not even ready to be open to a date like that. I'll hang out with her again, she was nice.

That's the problem. They are all decently nice and I'd like to see them again but I have a hard time seeing me dating aaaanyone. And maybe that's just my forever, I'm not meant to be coupled, but meet bunches of people. *shrug*

Lycophyte, don't get down about finding 'the one', or whatever. Have fun meeting new people!

I am dealing with a situation I never thought I'd find myself in. Two guys interested in me at the same time. I inadvertently made plans for them to hang out together. Eek. I invited my love interest from OKCupid to a work hangout where my super crush will be. I never thought my workmate would be interested. He's waaaaay cooler than I am and super sexy, but he's been asking around about me and my boss has been working hard to get us together. He also has a cute nickname for me.

Well if they're both obviously into you they'll both be like, shiitake, this person is DESIRABLE. And then you'll probably have a threesome.

Don't compare your date to other dates! You don't have to have the most fabulous time ever and spend 3 days together the first time you meet. You can just enjoy getting to know someone new.

Yeah, never compare how things were with your ex, at the end of the day that didn't work, so it's not the best measuring stick.

Well, that`s the most logical next step.

Good luck SD!

I put up a photo of me on a shoot, to me it's a photo of a photographer working, to the men it's obviously an arse shot. The traffic to my profile has multiplied and the emails are sailing in. I've cropped half my arse out of the photo too.

A reeeeeeeally cute guy favourited me, I sent him a short witty email, he hasn't answered, I can see him online, WHY HASN'T HE ANSWERED??!!

I got told to fork off today too, by a guy who I had just (politely) told I didn't want to talk to any more because he seemed bitter and hostile. I think the irony went over his head.

Thanks guys. Had a nice afternoon with the cute guy. Don't know if anything more will develop but if I can focus on living in the present moment, all is well.

Hahahahahahahaha.

Went on a date last night. Ran into my date from the previous night. awwwwwkward. I mean it was fine, but like, what do you do?

Gaaaah. Last night's date was better but it might be because a married lady is safer for not making serious attachments on my part, so I'm not second guessing why the hell I'm even there because I don't want a gf just like, flingyfun.

Ex girlfriend contacted me on the facebooks and not so subtley suggested meeting up for dinner some evening. We agreed to still be friends after breaking up, but haven't seen eachother at all since then anyway, so I'm assuming this is completely platonic. But maybe that is a dangerous assumption.

Aha, time to book the wedding venue!

Been using OK Cupid for a few weeks now and not been successful to the point of meeting up with anyone. ); Should probably stary messaging guys myself... when I am feeling slightly braver.

Put it on hold until you're comfortable enough to do it. I would suggest coffee for the first while, until you're sure of what's happening.

Clicked with a lovely guy over the weekend, then discovered that he's a smoker, I can't physically tolerate cigarette smoke, it's one of my migraine triggers. We were both so sad when we realised it wasn't to be... had a little romantic/slightly dramatic farewell. Just give up the smokes and email me dammit!
