Boing….. Boing….. Boing

No I’m not Tigger but I do appear to be the rebound girl bouncing my way through what is potentially going to turn into another dating disaster. Lovely date man has realised that perhaps he isn’t quite ready to be dating and now isn’t sure what he wants. I won’t go into details but it is a bit crappy and I’m hoping things resolve themselves somehow even if I just gain a new friend.

I’m laid low with flu lurgy at the moment, lying on my sofa in my zexy zebra print slanket with a snotty nose and bunged up ears feeling sorry for myself. In the comments on my last blog post the lovely La, big cheese over at http://www.sofarsochic.co.uk (sorry, my head is too fried to link it in a fangled way) said that although Easter is almost upon us, I shouldn’t put my eggs in one basket. So I’m not going to. I’ve decided to go to dinner with the other man from Match.com and treat dating like my sisters over the pond do, no exclusivity but no whoring it about either. There is nothing wrong with having dinner with eligible men right?

Of course I’m still hoping that things with original date man come good but only time will tell.

  1. I was wondering what was going on from your tweets. Oh, sod that "I don't know if I'm ready to be dating" bullcrap – if you're not, what are you doing on a dating site, sir?Go on as many dates as you can. As far as I'm concerned, it doesn't become exclusive until you've made the naked pretzel. (At least that's my rule – I know others can be a lot more lax and put it even further.)

  2. Hah naked pretzel! Love it! I think he's a bit freaked out because we were seeing a lot of each other and things were moving quickly – who knows though.Seriously, am chuckling to myself about naked pretzel, although, what sort of position would that mean? The mind boggles….

  3. FFS! If you're not ready to date DO NOT PUT YOURSELF ON A DATING WEBSITE! It's not like you met by accident in Sainsbury's. I despair. I'd keep well back from this one if I were you. Do not, whatever you do, become the pseudo-girlfriend shoulder-to-cry on while he sorts his shit out. He will sort his shit out, then he'll dump you cause he 'needs to be alone' and start going out with a 22 year old a month later. Well, maybe the EXACT same thing that happened to me won't happen to you, but please just be careful? PS So happy to be referenced! Citing. Comment moderation word this time is 'durfrint', which means 'man who f*cks heads'. x

  4. Ally I’m so sorry to hear this. As you know I’ve been on the end of this “I’m just not ready to date”, “I’m just too screwed up at the moment” bull shit, because quite frankly, and this isn’t going to make you feel any better, it IS bull shit. Modern men are just victims of themselves and when they’re living alone in a studio apartment eating cold baked beans out of a can or stuck in a loveless marriage they’re going to look back at these days and wonder why they fucked it all up (bitter, moi, never).Seriously, I cannot even begin to say how proud I am of you for sniffing this out and putting him aside, really, it’s not as easy as it sounds.I’m glad you’re going on a date with the guy from match.com…hope you feel better soon too xxxRe your comment above that was where my last dalliance fell down too, I had the audacity to try and make plans with him for the following WEEK! Evil cowbag that I am, actually wanting to enjoy his company :: insert eye roll here :: Well, that and he met me and didn’t actually like me but we’ll skip over that bit.

  5. This morning I've called time on it after he said he needed more time to think. It strikes me that if he needs that length of time to think then there is no way he is ready to be dating. He's obviously just not ready for this jelly! ;)(I'm still hoping that he'll change his mind OBVIOUSLY)….

Been there, done that, got the t-shirt, lost it at the launderette.Heh, the Naked Pretzel. It's up there with the Reverse Cowgirl and the Butterfly of Love. No, really, it's just an expression. And it makes people laugh, and you really need a lot of humour when dealing with the stupid bullshit of human mating rituals.
