Hi Everyone,

Just want to say thanks for all the great advice. I did email him and tell him that the phone conversations were good, but the chemistry was just not there for me, and I told him I hoped he found what he was looking for. He called my house 5 times this weekend but I was not here each time.

Gabi, good luck with your 2nd date. I hope someday I will get the hang of this online dating thing, I have been a non-paying member of match.com since May. Are there any better sites out there? Have not had much luck at match. Anyone know about AmericanSingles?

Someone told me not to get my expectations up, and just consider what the guy says about wanting to see you again as just a line. Good advice, since I do tend to get my hopes up, and we just have to remember there are thousands of guys out there, we will find him somehow if we keep trying and not lose hope. Yes it can be very discouraging, but I think that just comes with life. Its like a saying I heard about having to go through a lot of bad apples to find the good ones! I think that could apply here. I hope everyone has a great week, and lets all hold on to the idea that the right one for us is out there we just have not found him yet. Good luck to all!

Cathy, you sound as if you know yourself well enough to know what you need to do. You will find someone, and it will happen when you least expect it to. Isnt that the way it always works? lol Well, keep on trying and in the meantime, hang out, have fun, and post here all you want!! Thanks for the update and I am glad it worked out.

Good for you Cathy...its best to just get those kind of feelings out in the open. I haven't ever really used dating sites, although, I have an ad up on match.com now, and I am not a paying member. I'm in the process now of contacting a guy from my town who's a cutie, I just hope he's a member b/c he "winked" me and I winked him back....we'll see what happens :)

You'll find your prince...you just have to sort through some frogs first ;) Good luck to you!

No, he can "wink" me to let me know that he's interested in me. If I'm interested, I wink him back and we're a mutual match :)
