Comment on Internet Dating? No, never heard of it… by Bronnie – Maid In Australia.
I haven’t been able to do it. I’ve gone as far as signing up to a basic account but not proceeding to setting up a profile … and I’ve started browsing and been disheartened. I just … can’t. Maybe I can’t in the ‘real world’ either. Because my last couple of real world encounters have been disappointing. I’m open, I’m honest, and I expect others to be the same. But they aren’t. I’m willing to be proven wrong though.

Enough with the Single Shaming
Well I have felt all of this over the years. But I am also at an age now, and having been through two divorces, where people don’t even suggest dates or that I change my status anymore. They think I either don’t need/want anyone, or that I’m too messed up to be with anyone. Or that I should be concenrating on ‘me’. Seriously, I am sick of my own company! I’m not saying I want a relationship but I would actually like it if a friend or family member would think of me when there is a nice guy around my age who is single and looking for a girl to hang out with. And maybe date.. I also hate that I don’t get asked to a lot of things because I’m the one person in the group who doesn’t have a date or a partner. Gosh it peeves me. I quite like being single too, and Id rather be single than with the wrong guy … but it’s a mixed blessing.
Define Your Own Success
I love this post. It was just what I needed to read today. Off to find the fighter in me. She was there once …
Wading Through Wankers
Yuck. I want to meet someone but the whole idea of dating is so weird now. I recently went on one which I thought was refreshingly nice at first. The guy asked me over to his place where he would cook me dinner and we’d watch a movie. Naive me; I thought it was a relaxing way to get to know each other, and a bit more personal than going out to dinner. He did cook (surprisingly well), and we watched a movie, but I later found out that’s modern dating code for ‘let’s have sex’ without him having to pay for dinner. (And I’m a modern chick, I would have paid for mine, or I would have paid next time…) Most guys don’t even bother with the dinner and movie apparently so I guess I was lucky. And most offer Netflix (this guy is a bit more old-fashioned). I made my excuses and left … He continues to ask me out, but it’s always to his place so I’ve said no. I’m no prude, and I like sex as much as the next girl, but I’d like to get to know someone first. Or at least have time to see if there is a spark!
Walking with keys…
The thing is: We have to do this. We have to walk home from work or wherever. It was 5 pm in your post. How are you supposed to get home? We have to get to where we need to go.
