I am Kitt and I love a success story. Your an inspiration to all of the members.
I wish you peace and happiness and a lot of fun on your date.
Okay, after getting really nervous about it, I really enjoyed myself. It was great to go out and enjoy someone else's company. I mean I think he was as nervous, if not more so than I was! I had a good time, but I just wasn't that into him. (He wasn't that dynamic, I kept blowing him away with my adventure stories and he couldn't believe his ears!) But, the thing is I still felt down afterwards since he hasn't called or emailed me. I know I shouldn't, but I kinda feel rejected eventhough it didn't seem like the case at the time. I mean he specifically said he wanted to go out with me on a second date, but I declined to go out for drinks with him after dinner. (I'm an extreme light weight and there is no way I can drive if I have more than one.) So, I told him not to read anything into it and that I had a good time, but I haven't heard from him. I know that in today's day and age that there is no reason why I shouldn't call him, but I would prefer to be chased rather than doing the chasing. Maybe I'm old fashioned. Maybe I just want to feel wanted. Maybe I'm just lazy. But, whatever the reason I just feel a little down because of it. But, I definitely need to go out more often!
Congratulations on getting out and having a good time!!! I know how hard it is to make plans to do something fun and actually make it happen. I joined a local club of Jimmy Buffett fans (Parrot Heads), and have made it to a couple of socials, but I've missed both regular monthly meetings because I wasn't feeling well. There's another get together Saturday night, and I really hope I feel well enough to go.
As far as your disappearing date, guys can be either chicken and are too wimpy to follow up and say that they just aren't interested in going out again, or they can be juggling a bunch of dates at the same time, and have a hard time tracking who they need to call or email back.
My ex-husband was a "chubby chaser", and when I decided to have a gastric bypass to improve my health, he started picking up a whole pile of friends on the internet and was getting things going with several people at a time. The crazy thing was, he told every one of the women he was romancing a different story about his life situation. How he kept the stories straight boggles my mind. I quit working shortly before my surgery, and spent a lot of time on the home computer. My ex has Aspberger's Syndrome, a form of Autism, and he was a computer network genius but had no clue about hiding or deleting files on a home computer. I had set up all his accounts, so I was able to document all his activities, thus having all the proof I needed to kick him to the curb.
I hope your friend has just been busy and gets back to you. Even if it isn't a love connection, it's always nice to have a friend to communicate with or do things together.
Let us know how thing turn out.
GOSH you are popular!!! Have fun, take care and dont do anything your not ready for.
