Ok, so as many of you know, I just recently got divorced. It was final in January. We separated last August. I had started school in August and was getting used to the whole idea of being a single mom and student so I wasn't really looking to get involved.

I did date someone off an on. We have ended up becoming really good friends and I appreciate and value his friendship. He is just a very, very busy person and really didn't have time for me. At first it was nice that we only saw each other once in a while and it worked for me, but after a while I felt like I needed a little more than he could give so we just decided to remain friends. We talk several times a week.

I decided to put myself back out this past week. I thought I am just gonna go for it. I really missed having someone just to share my day with and have a good time with. So I signed up for an online dating site. I was nervous and scared of who I might meet. You never know with these things and there are tons of creepy people out there.

I signed up this past Monday and seriously, I had over 50 messages in 48 hours. I was like is this really what I want? But when I was searching through my matches a profile caught my eye. I ended up emailing him and he got back with me to tell me I was pretty and could we talk. He gave me his number and we texted and ended up calling and talking for 2 hours that night. Well we went on a date last night. It was great. Honestly the best first date I have ever had. We clicked and connected and just had a wonderful dinner. I never, ever thought in a million years I would do online dating, nor that I would meet someone on there but I did. I have absolutely no idea where it is going to go, but I am going to enjoy the ride.

I had seriously just about given up on ever dating again or even the thought of falling in love again. But after my date last night my eyes were opened that anything is possible. Just give it time. :up:

I met someone on line. There were many more who had huge "warts". Most were either still married, angry divorcees or still grieving a dead wife. I think if I were to do it again it would only be a pen pal relationship. There ae too many jerks using the sites.

Glad you did find someone. Be very careful and learn as much as possible about him before you invest anything, money time, emotion.

Oh yes I agree 100%. It was funny the responses I got from guys. And their usernames!! Many I could just discard right away. Like if they had xrated or anything alluding to 69 in their username got discarded right away. One guy had toolazyforausername. I was like if you are too lazy for that, you are probably lazy in all aspects of life.

We have been talking everyday and he seems like a real gentleman. He at times seems too good to be true but only time will tell on that. I just know that for the first time in years, I am enjoying going out and having a good time. I am not a bar scene person and I had no idea how to meet people. Plus my marriage was awful. Completely horrible and my ex was awful to me. He had totally ruined my self esteem. It's kinda nice to see someone who doesn't think I am awful and thinks I'm kinda cool. :yes:

I recently met someone online, and it has turned into a wonderful relationship. There are creeps and liars out there, but you'll find those everywhere. Be smart, be careful, and it can be a viable way to find love.

So just an update. I met an absolutely wonderful man online and we have a great relationship. I have honestly never been this happy!! And he is so supportive of me going into nursing school. He just graduated with his doctorate in law last May so he knows exactly what it is like to go back as an adult. I think I might finally be in love!! And yes, we met online. I am the happiest I have ever been. :yeah:

I'm from the era of the 'Personals Ads"; what a fiasco THAT was!

The ones I answered were not AT ALL like how they described themselves in the ads.

I responded to three ads, had three dull dates with three not-very-interesting characters, after which I said, "Nice to meet you; so long!" But I only said that to be pleasant; it wasn't nice to meet them. BLAH! It was a total waste of time!

There's a current real-life situation going on in my neck of the woods right now. Seems like a L&D nurse met a guy on-line and struck up a dating relationship with the guy. She was really into him. Turns out he's a bigamist from England and there's warrants out for him there and here in the States.

It's sad how she was snookered by his smooth style. She realized something was wrong when she was scammed for money.

Scarey how there's so many slick predators out there.

He told me he loved me for the first time last night. I never really expected this to happen. He told me he is so happy with me and has never fallen for a girl the way he has for me. I am on top of the world today. I feel like I met my partner in crime in life and I am having a blast with him. It's so funny how things worked out. Things happen when you least expect it. :inlove:

Commuter, I used match. We are still together and having a great time. He's met my son who adores him and I have met his kids who seem to like me as well. He has also recently introduced me to his parents and his friends. He surprised me the other day at school on my lunch break and had lunch with me. It was totally sweet. I will never get tired of hearing of how much he loves me, or how beautiful I am. I get told that every single day. We build each other up instead of tearing each other down. It's awesome. :inlove:
