NOT engaged - update
Thu, 09-08-2011 - 11:55am


Thought i would write an update.... I am not engaged. I have done some thinking and i would not get engaged so quickly. Even tho I've know my Florida guy for 20 years, he lives in Florida and I live 3 States away. It has never worked in the past and i don't see it being any different this time around. Plus, phone reception is really bad at my house and so when i've talked to him via cellphone, i can't understand him and it's frustrating. I tried emailing to see if that would be a better way to communicate and he never replied. Said, he rarely checks his email anymore... So there you have it..... long distance just doesn't work for either of us. Plus, someone warned that he may have ex issues etc..... Sure enough, he told me of instances where his ex spends the night on occasion... So i got the impressions things are over for him. So, i'm not even going to take the vacation trip to Florida.

Thanks for the update! I don't recall that you had a DD18. Most of the concerns seemed to be around the younger ones, so I guess that kind of got lost in the mess. :)

As fars as Mr. Florida, that was me who questioned the whole xGF things. Glad you have nipped that in the bud.

As much as I love SO, I have to admit there is something to be said for just being with your kids. No one to have to consult or plan around, etc. etc.

I hope you keep popping in! Like I have said before, alot of people lurk and you never know how your experience can benefit someone else unsure if they should marry again.
