This board has been very slow for the last few days, so perhaps none of the usual posters here have had any sorts of problems with the opposite sex. As great as that would be for all of us, it seems a little unlikely.

My social life has been pretty nonexistent lately, but I did finally make plans with the guy I met a month or so ago (the roommate of the cop). We're having dinner next Monday, which isn't on a weekend, like he had suggested, but it was the next day that both of us are available. But, since I don't want to put all of my eggs in one basket and risk getting too interested in someone I don't know very well, I've agreed to let me neighbor introduce me to a guy at our gym who has asked about me. It can't hurt to explore other options, even if I do hold out hopes that things will go well next Monday night.

I hope everything is going well for all of you.

I post from work - and I am spending WAY too much time in meetings. A couple of weeks ago, I was chosen to plan and host the Annual General Meeting b/c we wanted it to be "fun". I'm the office "fun" person. It was a total success and the feedback was fantastic...now I'm chose to plan and prepare all sorts of meetings. Today its the implementation review for the strategic plan...how do I make that fun? LOL.

Good to hear you are finally going out on a date with this guy!!! I can't wait for the update...woohoo :-)

I had class all day today. Lots of listening to boring people. I've also been trying to get this Disney thing worked out. It looks like you have to be married or something to get Disney packages, so that plan is out. But, I found a better one. It looks like we may be able to stay offsite for a whole lot less if we just share a condo. They really aren't all that expensive to split ($250-300 for each of us for seven days).

Other than that, I guess I haven't had much to say. I'll be honest: I feel like lately I post questions that are ignored by all but a few. Pathetic, I know, but it really makes me less likely to even try.

I've been spending my time at home relaxing. I have my bag of books that I bought during the school year and haven't had time to read -- and I'm reading. R. and I have also spent a lot of time together -- dinner/movie outings. I am just enjoying them for what they are -- time with someone whose company I enjoy -- and not expecting more. On the other hand, my hormones are starting to wake up and say "Look! A man! Let's see what we can do with him!"

Keeping "the estrogen twins" at bay is rather difficult. Any ideas?

In the morning I'm leaving with a friend to the beach for a few days and then going to see R. play Friday night.

Hey there - why would you even consider not going out with someone else, at this stage?

I think it is sad that you think this board is focused on problems with men - it is "single life" - is there nothing else relevant to the single life? your perception, if accurate, is sad . . . . .for example, even when I have a boyfriend (and now I do) I consider myself single until I am engaged/married

Must you always condescend? I've noticed you do that in your responses to everyone. That I find sad. Why must you always try to make yourself seem superior to others? You think it's sad that I think this board deals with problems with men? Have you read what most people tend to post? Those are the issues that draw the most responses. I suggest you try treating the people you respond to with a little more respect.

I think people answer the questions with issues that really interest them. Personally, I sometimes don't answer because I don't want to elicit insulting responses from certain people who think it's necessary to put other people down.

Hmmm - sorry you interpreted my tone like that - and sorry you apparently awoke on the wrong side of the bed - I hope you cheer up soon! And have fun on Monday night.

Sorry...didn't mean to be so harsh, but the tone did bother me, whether or not that's how you intended it to sound.

My tone bothered you - I never would have guessed. ;-) If you reread my post you will see that I said that if you are right, it is sad that this board is so focused on problems with men. If you took that comment personally, so be it - it by definition wasn't meant that way. Have a great day.

I think I'm just getting a little stressed out. I *try* my hardest to make things interesting, I promise! Maybe I'm getting a little frustrated.

I know what you mean about things that get you all riled up, but the key is to just ignore your urge to fight back. There are people all over iVillage who make it a point to put others down. Once you see that it's not personal, it's less irritating.
