We're halfway through the week...thank goodness!

Any venting necessary? I ask b/c I must vent. Last night, we lost our volleyball game because of a bad ref. Normally, I wouldn't blame anyone else for our loss, but this lady made bad calls, then refused to read the rule book to see she was wrong. We were cheated out of a point also. The other team didn't play anywhere near as well as our teams played, but they won b/c of it. If you know volleyball, you'll know what I mean when I say they were just sending the ball right back on the first hit, and my girls took awhile to adjust and be ready for that. It's irritating because I can't do a thing about it. It's in the past, though, so life goes on.

Anyone else have any mid-week venting to do?

Hi, I'm new. Had a horrible last week. First my bf dumped me on Monday, then my wallet was stolen on Saturday. Still waiting for some good luck here!

I'm sorry your week has been crappy. I've had my wallet stolen before, and it's a pain to get all that stuff replaced. Getting broken up with isn't fun, but just remember there are new dating adventures out there for you!

For me today is a start? of a relationship. Last night I had a great coffee date with a woman who is an acquaintance of a friend of mine. She's spiritual, self aware, athletic, open, warm, friendly, and physically attractive. She cautioned me that she had her heart broken from her last relationship so she may not be "available" for the type of relationship I see, i.e. a heart, long term connection. I told her that I don't have a fixed view of how I want to approach potential relationships and was willing to see where it goes. We are both at a place where we can enjoy each other's company and look for things to do with someone. How I like to approach life is just be open to it and see where it takes me. This includes relationships as well.

Yes, I just had an internet date with a 40 something professor - smart, cute enough, etc and when the check came ($20 total, including tip) he watched me take out my wallet and let me pay half, giving me 10 singles (I only had a 20) - oh, he did leave the $3 tip - woo hoo - and asked if I'd like to go out again - I said sure but actually, I don't know - would it have killed him to insist on paying for my $10 lunch (that's about $5 out of NYC, LOL)?

I've had some men tell me they don't offer with independant, modern women types. They have had experiences where the women found it offensive. Personally, I'm with you - I like when they offer. Guess that makes us traditional types ;-)

All I can write is - I am SO EXHAUSTED! Good thing there is only two more days left...today is just about a done deal. I am making some major career changes right now and I'm feelin' the stress of it. Got a big speech competition next week and I haven't even written it yet...I hate the way I do that...scramble at the last minute. But I have NO PLANS this w/end except one small date...so I plan to SLEEP, relax, cook & clean...ah, sounds divine.

So I'm curious on what makes a date a "small" date?

Yes - on a first date, the man should pay - last sunday however I insisted on paying on a first date even though I knew there would not be a second because (1) he drove 2 hrs and paid for parking and (2) he bought me a pound of pastries. so there!
