Now it is just plain old boring and depressing.

Good Night

Since I can't post from my phone anymore, I can't check here often.  Plus, since it's not jumping to the first unread post, it just annoys me to scroll through anything more than two or three responses. 

I never miss drama...but you guys know that about me!

The baby is back...that's good news.

I do hope that the glitches in changing to the new system didn't scare everyone away--it's pretty quiet on all the boards (I read the parenting ones too).  I guess I enjoy drama when it doesn't involve me--that's why I like reading the Relationship Problems boards.  lol

Glad to hear that the baby is back.  I hope that situation can be resolved soon.

Absolutely 100% agree. I too miss her/him/them, badly. It's almost not worth it reading this board anymore.

Marina, whoever/wherever you are, male, female, both, a ghost, a spirit, or nothing at all - please come back. All is forgiven (there was nothing to forgive in the first place, imho).

Edited to add: can someone please explain to me what the ehm, h***, for want of a stronger word, was the point of this entire 'upgrade' nonsense???? We were doing just fine!!!

Hey Julia,

The main reason for the changes was that we were addressing speed issues as well as bringing it in-house to have more control so we could customize it instead of waiting on a third-party software provider do it for you, now we have our own techs and don't have to wait in line.

We have been taking notes of all our members concerns and escalating them to the tech team. Our Director of the community is going to share an update later today, so there should be some good news soon :D

I'll just have to disagree with you ladies on this one.  If I want fantasy and drama, I will watch Lifetime movies or rent a DVD.

And there's always Fifty Shades of Gray if one needed steamy sex scenes...

I wish I had fun boy drama to discuss!  I'd be happy to share.  :) 

I did have a job interview this week, and got a call for another job that is about to be posted.  So maybe I'll have a job soon?  In the meantime, I picked up some more contract work.  It's not perfect, but it helps pay the bills.

I got an offer on my place (I am looking to sell, and plan to rent wherever I get a job) but there's a bunch of hoops to jump through first before it's official. 

When these things are settled, I promised myself I'd be more proactive in dating.  So you guys can hold me to it!
