OLD is tough..as previous people have said. I went on a second date Fri eve, and had an absolutely amazing time w a guy. He asked what I was doing over the weekend and I told him I had plans already to hit the shore, which is against what I may have done in the past..which would have been to rearrange my schedule. I figure if he is that interested he will wait for a date for when I get back and we planned Wednesday eve. Anyhow, he has texted me each day that I've been down here. Now, we have been on only 2 dates but I'm pretty certain he set up a date w another woman over the weekend and no matter how well I prep myself and tell myself its only been 2 dates and of course he will date, its hard for that to not hurt a bit because we have so much fun together. if he went out on the date the eve I think, he then texted me that same eve at 1030pm. Anyhow, I know I should be dating others now but its been a dry spell and no one interesting has come up. I just tell myself the right thing will work out. Of course he will date and if he finds someone else who is a better fit it should happen sooner rather than later. I'm trying to keep myself out there on website and I figure if we decide to go exclusive then then that time will come, otherwise I need to not get so emotionally caught up in one person.

I am one of those people who tend to get way involved with somebody and it would hurt my feelings to know he was dating somebody else.

It's so normal for you to feel this way and those feelings are not exclusive to OLD.

Thank you! I guess we just need that encouragement sometimes! I appreciate support from other women who understand. It can be hard but thank you for your words of encouragement. Ill continue to follow my gut instincts and im hopeful it will work out the way it should in the end!
