After my divorce I decided to take time to be on my own. I felt I needed that experience as well as needed to find myself again. And then unexpectedly MB came in my life and showed me that I missed having someone in my life so I decided to start getting myself out there a bit. This whole OLD crap really gets to me sometimes. I've been talking with a man and we seemed to hit if off well. A lot in common, good & long phone conversations. He pushed to meet and I agreed. We were supposed to meet today after work. Well he didn't contact me last night to confirm so I sent him a text this morning asking if we were still on. This was his reply: good morning, hope you're doing well. Unfortunately I met somebody else and we did meet I would like to see where it goes sorry for the timing take care. Okkkkkkkkkk (and why is meeting someone else unfortunate? lol). So if in fact that is true good for him. What irks me is that if I had not contacted him he probably would have left me sitting at the restaurant waiting for him. I think that because I texted him right before he started work and I know from conversation that he cannot take his phone in with him. I'm glad I found out he was a jerk before I vested any more time but still it is pretty frustrating. When I first starting "looking" about 8 months ago I honestly thought I'd have a boyfriend by now. My thoughts today are just to throw in the towel but I know in a day or two I'll be back looking again. All because I feel that if I go through 100 bad scenarios but come up with one good man it will all be worth it. But is it even logical to think that at 52 there is such an available man left? After the scammers, the rapist scare, the drunks, etc. that I've been finding when does one say to he** with it and finally give up?
