...It wasn't until Mindy took down her boyfriends pants and eyed his bewitching tool that the people collecting their giros got a bit annoyed...
Well here we are folks, its the very first Piddys Place guest blogger...here's Gina!
Welcome to Gx's world - The Dating game(and for some it's just that, a game!)
What's it like being single and 42. Most of the time it's fantastic, a close circle of friends who care about each other, uncomplicated fun, never having to explain where you are going, who with, and what time you will be home, cooking what you want when you want, fancying the same guy as your gay friend(what good taste we have Neil). But of course there is always a down side, the things I really miss, a hug, the relaxing massage after a busy day at the office, some else putting petrol in the car, coffee in bed and occassionally, sex-honest I only miss it sometimes!
So 2005 is here, it's time I started seriously looking for that single, some-one special, sounds easy, but the reality is very different. Armed and enthusiastic, (after a drunken chat with Martin, one night) I logged on to www.I'msad&desperate.com. All the time I thinking "why am I doing this" but 5 weeks on, I can honestly say I've had fun. I'm trying to be very careful and I thought very selective, but, of course you can be whoever you want on paper. I personally prefer to be upfront and honest, but have discovered that others do not feel the same. This year so far I have had two dates, both very nice(ish) and both very different.
Date 1, fab, sexy, intelligent man, own house etc etc........ I will refer to him as "dangerous", he's a "player", just looking for sex. Well sunshine, my advice to you is to keep looking, I wanted to be dated first, and shown some respect. He was not prepared to do either, so subsequent dates were always cancelled. His nickname for me was "Miss prim and proper", I feel sure my friends would never describe me as this!
Date 2, a nice guy, made me laugh, but unfortunately there was not the "something special" I'm looking for.
Date 3, nearly happened, but some-one got there first, he was honest and told me, and I can't ask for more than that.
So my quest goes on, or does it? If I'm honest, I have become addicted to logging on, checking emails, etc.(of course, I always read the blog first!) But maybe it's time for me to have a break from this sad and desperate life, and enjoy being single. People (all of them married) keep telling me I will meet some-one when I least expect too, I'm not so sure, so for now I will take it one day at a time, and maybe my efforts will pay off.
So to all the single people out there, good luck, and lets hope that one day we will find that illusive special some-one! Must go now, I need to check my emails again!!!! lol
Special thanks go to: Neil-for inviting me as a guest blogger, and for introducing me to a gorgeous man on Friday(who unfortunately forgot he was married), Lisa-for loaning me the relationship books, and making sure I don't make any mistakes, Martin-for giving me to courage to log on, Karen-for giving me the enthusiasm to continue, Lynne-for keeping an eye on me, Lilian-for selecting date number 2, Helen-for keeping a secret!!!!! and off course, to all my friends who are always so supportive, even when I have shocked them.
Aww, many thanks to Gina for that special look at a ladies libido...more from me tomorrow.
