Just when I thought it was safe....

I recently thought I might try the online dating thing again....

Well think again...

Just as I was considering posting a new profile, I felt some ugly repercussions from my last foray into that realm...

No, I am not going to divulge any kiss and tell secrets...

But let's just say I am pretty horrible at wading through the good, the bad, and the ugly...

And by ugly, I mean those who are not what they seem....

I have managed to be attracted to a Nigerian scammer, a secret service pain in the ass, and a reformed con artist....

Okay, so maybe he was not as reformed as he led me to believe...

I just look for the best in everyone...

And I end up getting shown the worst...

Maybe it is not just on-line dating...

After all, I did marry a man who turned out to not be the husband or father of my kids that I wanted...

Maybe I just suck at any dating....

Either way...

I have just decided to continue my sabbatical from that arena for awhile longer...

If I hint at going there again, please stop me...

Do anything to stop me...

I'm with you, Phillipia. I suck at dating, too. I tried the online thing after some friends badgered me into doing it. I tried meeting one guy and the first question he asked was if I had a good pension plan... WTF? Then he spent the rest of the hour telling me how much he exercises. Creeped me out totally. So, in five years of being single, I've had coffee with one guy... yeah, I'm a loser!

I suck at dating too but my friends don't believe me. When they insist I should get back out there, I just ignore them.

CLL, you are not the loser - they are. Why do we let a few losers turn us off of dating...
oh yeah...cuz we seem to pick 'em.

feefifoto, hold your ground...

I still believe there is someone out there for all of us...I am just tired of trying to find him; maybe I will just let him try to find me...
