The BIG SECRET that's not.. anymore...

  1. BadBird actually nailed it, there was a potential "Rick" in the works but it died in it's infancy.

    Had been corresponding for the last 3 months with a guy in Indiana. Great match by all accounts, age 40, college grad, divorced 3 years, 2 kids, active socially, active in fraternity, same likes and dislikes. Job was going to move him here to Vegas.

    Well, last I heard from him was Monday when he was going to get the confirmation from the boss when he was moving out here. He sent an email saying, "I'll give you a call later today" and I haven't heard from him since.

    So, nothing to report. No news. Potential "Rick" cancelled and out of the picture.

    You may now return to your regularly scheduled thread reading. Thank you.

    Maybe something happened that he couldn't call.
    Maybe he slipped on some ice and has amnesia and is just waiting for you to show up at his side so that he can remember all!
    Maybe he locked his keys in the car and cant get out.
    Don't give up on him yet.

    Sorry it didn't pan out (or maybe it will). Who knows? Hang in there.

    Like I said Vegas, it will happen when you least expect it.

    definately! isn't that how it always works? reminds me of one of my favorite quotes...."happiness is a butterfly, which, when pursued, is always just beyond your grasp, but which, if you will sit down quietly, may alight upon you." -- nathaniel hawthorne

    I think there is more to come of that story, I find it hard to believe he wouldn't contact you if he could. Keep us posted. And I will say my little prayer for you.

    Well, yeah, the I'll call you later today is a bit of a puzzle. Maybe it's just a red herring.

    We all know that when a woman says I'll call you - she means "Today." When a man says it, he means "at some point before I die."

    You'll find your RickRickRick, and he'll be the luckiest guy in the world!!!

    Just cause he didn't call doesn't mean he isn't interested.
    Did you call him?

    You mean he said he'd call you "later today" and that was almost a week ago? hhmmmm

    Is he usually reliable, I mean does he usually do what he says he'll do? If so, I'd be worried and start calling hospitals. If he is the kind to just make dates or promises and then keep them casually or not at all, I'd say he had better have a darn good reason for not calling like he said he would, like he's IN the hospital unconscious. Otherwise, this isn't the guy for you, or anyone else!

    Relationships! Don't you just hate the beginning stages of them?

    Do you think he told the truth about being divorced? I've had dates in the past where men always were "divorced" or "about to be divorced"...later found out they were very very married and divorce was not on the horizon.

    I'll never forget the one man I met who told me he was divorced several years, and was just getting back into the swing of dating again as he was very wounded by the ending of his marriage. Hated to leave the kiddoes and all. Yeah, sure he did!

    Then one Sunday after church, my children and I went to this mall near our town. Lo and behold....who do you think I saw snuggling up to a woman who was holding an infant in arms while he pushed a stroller with two other children in it. That's right! Mr. Divorced and Severely Wounded himself.

    What do you think I did after spotting him with the family? That's right! I walked over to them, introduced myself to the woman...just in case she wasn't his wife, but a friend. He QUICKLY introduced her as his loving wife, introduced the kiddoes to me. I said hello, and got out of there quick. I'm sure she asked him later who I was.

    The ending of this drama ended in a phone call later that night from him telling me he lied about being divorced, and how sorry he was for lying to me. I told him if I ever saw him trying to cheat on his wife again in a club that we both met in or anywhere else for that matter that I would personally see to it that she found him out.

    Apparently she caught on to his cheating lying ways because it wasn't long before she called my telephone number and asked me who I was. I told her I met her husband in a club some time ago, and he told me he was broken hearted over a painful divorce several years earlier and missed his children terribly. She said, "Is that right?" I said, Yes, maam, and I promise to tell you if I see him cheating on you again. I even told her the club he frequented. Hmmmm...wonder if she finally gave him that "painful divorce where he really ended up missing his kids". :chuckle Serves him right, if she did....LOSER!!!

    I learned from that experience to always ask a man who told me he was divorced to show me the papers of proof of his divorce. If they said they were "just separated", I'd say, when...since breakfast?

    Yes, ladies, there are true dogs who wanna be players in life, but as that man got caught, so will those who try playing his game on women while the wife is at home with the kiddoes.

    Why the divorce, did he ever say? Did you try to make contact with him? It's been five days... I guess you should have heard from him by now. Don't wait around for this loser. If you haven't heard from him by now, only goes to show you that he was full of it to begin with. Your "Rick" will come around and he'll be worth the'll see.
