Hi..I have not been on this site in a very long time. I'm glad to see you still posting and that things are going well for you. I remember quite a while back the "Carlos" deal and how badly I felt for you when that did not work out. However, this new guy is good looking & I hope he does not let you down. I have not had the gumption to do online dating in over a couple years because I got burned so badly when I was doing it. I was involved with the one guy (Robert) who ended up having a drinking problem that he would not get help for. When he was sober, he was a wonderful guy and there was love between us but love isn't enough when there is addiction involved. I think you warned me about that, but I got sucked into his "drama" anyway. I've been in Al-Anon for over a year. While I initially went because of my involvement with this guy, I have stayed because it's a good program for life. I've met some friends and feel like I'm a bit more healed.

I recently did update my profile on Match & Yahoo but have not paid to subscribe yet. So far, I have not seen too much that interested me. I just don't know if I want to go there again. However, I keep hoping if I could meet someone else, that I'd be able to move forward better. Sometimes I feel pretty content to have no one in my life and at other times find myself very lonely and feeling like I'm wasting time by not actively trying to meet someone. There is a new singles group in my town that is catering to those who don't want to do the bar scene (sort of a Christian group which is fine with me) but so far I have not been able to do any of their events due to my work schedule. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and I'm glad to see you still here.

Hey! I wondered how you have been. I actually am rarely here, try to pop on every couple weeks when I can. But Im glad to hear from you.


Im sorry that whole thing happened ... just take it as a life lesson! Thats all you can do. We can only grow from our experiences - good OR bad ones.


I still am very close to Carlos. In fact, I was in Boston last week for his Dads funeral. Sadly, Carlos is still single & really craves a relationship - but I dont think he will ever get there. Too bad b/c he is a wonderful human being.


Hope all works out well for you! R~
