Ok... Get this. It's been 7 1/2 years since I've been with anyone romanticly. I got divorced in 1999, dated a girl for six months afterward, and since then, nothing. Tonight, I go out on my first date in over 7 years. Now how's that for stamina! hahaha.

Thing is, you'd think I should be nervous or something, but I'm not. Maybe it's due to my age. I'm 47 and I pretty much think that being nervous is kid stuff. I'm pretty much of the opin that I'm not really caring anymore if it works out on the first date or not. I'm just going to let things roll and see if it takes. If it clicks, great. If not... no biggie. Been alone for this much time, it won't kill me to keep on being alone.

So... there's a true post for this site when it comes to romance, dating, and relationships.

Ok, I'm back. The lady was really nice. We eat dinner and talked about all kinds of things. She's a fellow fan of Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, and a few other things. The two hours we spent talking seemed to go pretty well. It was nice talking to a grown up that isn't always talking about sports or work. It was refreshing. I may ask her out again, if she's interested that is.

Congratulations, I say call her for another date. I'm curious though, it sounds from your post Scryer41 that you got the feeling she wasn't interested? Did you get that feeling?

Actually, she contacted me. We've been chatting over the last month or so and she then asked if I'd like to meet her. I said "if she's interested" because I have no idea what goes on in a woman's mind. When it comes to how a woman thinks, I'm clueless. She said I was a nice guy and that she had a nice time. But you never know. That could mean.... "You're a nice guy... but not for me." She gave me her phone number. So I guess that's a good thing.

Always a good thing getting those phone numbers. Call her and see what happens.

I called her to tell her that I had a nice time. But I got her messenger. So, I left a message. I haven't heard back from her yet. If she doesn't call back, I'll try once again. If no return call is received, I guess I'll just go on looking. Smile

I will keep my fingers crossed. But, if she doesn't, at least you had a good time and broke the ice on the dating thing. Razz

Yeah. But it's so difficult trying to get a date anymore. Oh well, if she's not interested, then I'll just go on being alone.

Beware the beast Man for he is the Devils pawn.
Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport, or lust, or greed.
Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brothers land.
Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert out of his home and yours.
Shun him. Drive him back into his jungle lair.
For he is the harbinger of death.\"

Wow. 7 1/2 years? In a few days I'll be at 13, and almost a year since my last date. If I could afford a gun I'd shoot myself just to relieve the boredom...

You'll be at 13? Years? I'm a bit corn-fused. It's been a year since your last date?

Well, anyway, she did call back. She said she'd like to go to a function I have invited her to. Food, music, and a laser light show. Can't beat that with a stick!

13 years since my last relationship. One date with someone I never saw again does not a relationship make.

Here's the update: After two weeks of trying to get to this gal over the phone and via email, with no replies, I sent one final email to her. Basicly I said I was sorry she didn't seem interested anymore and I hoped that she found someone she could be more involved with.

So...
