Hi everyone. My system is down so I've got some freetime to post. Things have worked out with that "friend" of mine. We both decided we just got along better as friends so that's what we are. He took it very well. Now we can just be ourselves and be best friends.

I have a date tomorrow however with someone new. He's a guy I met online. But kicker is, he's from my hometown, Atlanta. He actually went to the same college I did. But he was there before I was so we never knew each other. He's now working about 20 mins from me in CT. He's an optical engingeer, how cool is that? (we went to an engineering school) He also has a masters, which to me is very sexy. Anyway so far we haven't run out of anything animated to talk about. Hopefully that'll flow over to our in person meeting. If anything, I've found a new friend to hang out with, one who understands what it's like to be a southerner living in yankee country. So wish me luck!

Oh so happy for you! Next! I hear ya. Well, yes it is very sexy when a man is really smart, and has his SH** together. Let us hope this man does. Well, let us know how this one turns out. Trial and Error ! Goodluck with him, and maybe yes you both being southern there is some common ground there. Friends if nothing else. I like your attitude. Good!

Wow, it seems like you and this new guy have lots in common already -- both of you being from the same city, the same college, and now the same state! And only 20 minutes away? Not too shabby ;) If things work out between the two of you someday or if you remain friends, you'll have someone not too far away. I hear ya about the Master's degree. My boyfriend earned his Master's about a year ago and now I am doing the same since it's my turn to catch up! (Of course, that is not why I am earning my Master's...)

Anyhoo, good luck to you and whatever happens, you seem to have such a positive, hopeful attitude. Keep that up!
