I do this myself but I notice we on the board at times are confusing just a date with a full blown relationship.. I know I do it myself because we all want to be in a good relationship but last week when I had my date and Music had her date and Mshon met a new guy its just that.. Just meeting someone and just a date.. Its sad I know but most things I read and the gurus and all point it out right away and say dont get your hopes and expectations up because it was that JUST A DATE OR A MEET or whatever.. I know I know its hard but nothing is promised nor set in stone and unless a man or woman is actually telling us or calling us to set things up then we cant think we are getting into a relationship with them..
Man I know how challenging it is to think like that but we have to as we have to save ourselves from being too hard on ourselves...
Unfortunately when older its challenging getting one date let alone a few suitors but that is why we are told to date different people.. (not sleep with them) date a few to see who will be the one to pick us.. that is how it works.. Its tough because we folks in our fifties have a smaller dating pool and its especially difficult to find one date let alone a few..
