do I really want to get back in the dating game? I don't know, joined a dating sight a couple of weeks ago and have been exchanging emails/texts with a couple of people met one for a coffee last week was nice enough but no spark on either side. Met another one sat night, he was nicer got on fine but just don't fancy him, suspect he's going to ask me out again though if he doesn't that's fine. only thing is im not even sure I want to be back in all this!!!! am I only doing it to prove something, if so will it prove anything except for that I can find random people on the internet that would be willing to go out with me???

Never mind Stumpy mate. Get a few more of them raunchy episodes of Game of Thrones on and she might take your sorceror's staff in hand yet. Top tip girls like a bloke with a sense of humour that might help you out too ;)

Yeah it is, but I say "Dating" for want of a better word. We are friends. We dont sleep together, we are not having sex, we just spend time together. There is a big difference between a friend who happens to be a girl and a girlfriend.

So sorry haway, you me believe youre always right, but in this case your certainly a bit wide of the bullseye.

Funny thing though, my ex wife always said that the infamous Andy was just a friend. Til I found out that she'd had an affair with him before we met, whilst he was married to one of her best friends, and I have no doubt was happily screwing him behind my back.

I am happy being single. So is my friend. We just enjoy each others company. There is no pressure. No hassle. I am sure you actually read the full post as opposed to reading into it what suited. Frankly, though you may find it all very amusing, I dont.

Hey Stumpy is that girl you're dating for 6 months.
"The girl who is a friend" who went in to to your ex misus workplace with you to wind her up. WHO IS NOT MY GIRLFRIEND HAWAY!!
And this is why I AM ALWAYS RIGHT ;D

Dating is a tricky thing at the best of times.

For about six months now, I've been (for want of a better word) dating a lady I have known for about 11 years. not in a romantic snese, though she is quite delightful, and very attractive, we share a lot of common interests...

But in all honesty, the best thing about it is that there is no pressure, we love each others company. I dont know if it will ever lead to anything more, it would be very nice if it did, but I am trying not to build up any hopes.

I found a very amusing video of Henry Rollins on Youtube. It kinda sums up my dating experiences since splitting from my ex wife.

Like Henry, I want one of them "readers". My friend is, we swap books and suggest authors to one another. We sit and watch Game Of Thrones together. Same for Penny Dreadful. We talk. REALLY talk. In a lot of ways we talk in the same way my ex and I used to, but somewhere along the line, lost. We openly talk about painful subjects, things that have been buried for many years, and I guess we offer each other comfort and kindness.

Take from dating whatever you can. As long as it does you good.

What bothers me the most about online dating is how you have to define who you want, what background, quality, build etc etc. IF (very very big IF) i ever get to trust anyone again, it's because i like what i see in his eyes and he makes me weak at the knee (might be easier once arthritis sets in due to old age...). I don't care if he ticks all the boxes, as long as he makes go all gooey!
And i'll never live with him or marry him or depend on him for happiness, no matter how dreamy. That ship has sailed.

Online dating is horrific, and I regret having bothered loads.. the only way you will start dating is actually to get outside and meet real people.

Of course people want to date you, and everyone on here.. thats not a problem.

Look at yourself think about something you want to do, that's social.. anything from archery, to rally driving to joining a library.. life is opportunity not 4 walls. And other people, friends, lovers, fighters, dates are all ready waiting for you in the real world not on plenty of fish...

Hello Witches,
if your unsure I think your not ready, and when you are ready you will kiss a few frogs before you meet your prince :D, lots of my friends have met lovely partners on line, a friend married hers this month, the first man she dated, but I think that is very uncommon she was very lucky, not sure if I will go down the internet line, as after being married 30yrs looking forward to a few on my own. but it does work if your ready and prepared to meet lots of people, it won't happen instantly unless your very lucky like my friend. you take care xxx

Hi I felt a bit like you, I have been on an internet dating site for a few months, have met a few people from it, first couple only met the once, then had a few dates with another who I quite liked but after a few dates it wasn't going anywhere, now I have recently met someone who I am enjoying being with. What I am trying to say is you have to go out with a few different people before you meet someone you fit well with. I also felt really strange at first, like I was doing something to be guilty about, but now I don't, I think going out with someone after a long marriage needs practice, enjoy the dates, you are not planning on spending the rest of your life with them so enjoy the moment.
