Hey AN family. Am I the only one that hates texts? There is no tone and I am left reading the text several times in different voices. Ha! Damn these phones. Decipher this for me: "It was just fun... Read More

    Life is short, ask him out, for Pete's sake!
    Agree. I replied to Mr. Chicago before I read OP's follow up. I think he's somewhat interested.

    Ask him out. What's the worst that can happen, he says no? You won't die.

    I know he is interested, but is being careful I think. To be quite honest, as crazy as this will sound I enjoy being single. My marriage ended badly and I think I am just now really starting to feel that independence in being single. I love the fact he also has kids, because he will understand where I am coming from. He has mentioned going out some time, but never really followed through and planned something. I will keep you guys posted.

    I'm married, why am I in this thread?
    Oh yea, I'm nosy.
    If I ever found myself single I would gain 100 pounds, get 10 cats, and let them eat my face when I die. But, that's just me.

    lol Farawyn!! I love cats, but too much cleaning up. I already clean up after three kids. When my ex and I separated almost four years ago, I had to pick up the pieces and complete my degree, get my RN license all while working to make ends meet. I just started my RN position less than 2 months ago. So, do you see why I am finally starting to feel single. Actually, I really believe the single fun life will begin after I feel a little more competent as a nurse which I hear is around the one year mark. Until then, I really don't want to be attached to anyone.

    I have 4 cats and 6 litter boxes. It's a lot of cleaning to do. But they're worth it- I can turn the heat way down at night because they share their body heat with me.

    I'm also enjoying my current, recent singlehood. Sometimes, we get to better know ourselves that way and learn for what we want to look for in a partner. Of course, I did that several times already, so maybe I'm not the one to speak to that.

    If I were you LM NY, I wouldn't get myself entangled in a relationship right now. Especially with 3 kiddos and a new career.

    Complications arise with blended families - speaking from experience.

    Just enjoy being mom and a new nurse.

    Yeah well, cute complicates things. I fell for a bleach-blonde surfer dude . . . not a good idea.

    Hahhahahaaaaa!
    Well, like I said, 100 pounds, cat eating face, blah de blah.
    I don't like (or care about) traditional cute.
    Tall, well read, funny, must like music and nerdy.

    Hubs is 6' 7"
    Nerdy FAIL though. Booo.

    My step-dad was 6'7". Blonde. Very . . . debonair? I have this great photo of he and my mom and they look like movie stars! He died of a brain aneurysm in 1971 so he was barely in our family before he died. One of the questions I have for God someday is . . . why? Our lives went to hell in a hand basket after that.

    Surfer dude was a long time ago when I was in my 20's . . . he didn't age well. But boy was he cute then.

    Honestly, being alone doesn't sound all that bad. A good friend and I both agree that if our dh's die before we do, we will not remarry or even date. Too much darn trouble - and this is for both men and women. I'm not letting women off the hook for being challenging!

    I'm in Brooklyn. Thanks for the advice guys, I really appreciate it. It's true though, I do feel like I am finding myself. I am definitely learning a lot about myself as well. I am an independent and motivated person which are great qualities to have as a single woman. However, I am also a passionate, loving and nurturing individual which sucks because I miss having that warm body next to mine. Sometimes I feel like I have all the time in the world to slowly find someone on my own terms and then I feel like I don't want to waste too much time. As of right this second, I don't want to add to the stress of being a new nurse. Ugh!!! Why are all the amazing and wonderful men taken? And why are all the drama-free, down to earth cool chicks single? You see my dilemma lol

    It has been recently confirmed that married men and single women lead longer, healthier lives. Hmmm...

    I was single until I was forty, and I loved it!

    Of course that was back in the days of free love and before AIDS began making it's way around....so 'warm bodies' were not difficult to find, and permanence in a relationship was not necessarily sought after. I kind of lived like a bachelor, who were never considered ***** because of their carefree lifestyle!.....

    Can't believe we have made it to 26 years together.
    I told hubs before we got married that he'd better make up his mind that that's what he really wanted to do, because I was only doing this thing (marriage) ONCE in my life.
    So, I agree w/ Steph: no more husbands for me, either, if mine was no longer in the picture. I don't think I would have the patience to learn and put up w/ their quirks. I have plenty of my own quirks.

    This has nothing to do with text messages, does it?!!
    At least we're not having this discussion on the JacobRSRNPNAF (or whatever) 'cause SUMBUDDY might blow a gasket, fling those arms up and walk away!
