Opening the Revolving Date Door

morning weight: 255 lbs

Well. July 1st. The landlords have not issued any indication of an increase or change in the lease. Whether they realize it or not, they've just accepted me for another year. Not my fault they cannot remember that the lease expires September 1st. Moving is a hassle and an expense I'd rather not have to deal with. Even though this place and the one-hour commute is costing me more than it is worth.

So, like I said before, if I'm staying, I may as well start dating, weight and all. The ex still calls for romper time requests, and I'm feeling my resolve weakening. So I better hop to it.

I've written profiles before. It is the photos that matter. Guys never read more than 3 lines. I am going to try for humor though, so we'll see.

As for which sites, I don't know. Any suggestions? Match and Yahoo were terrible, recycled men. Chemistry is a rich version of Match, so maybe I should aim high and try that. eHarmony tends to be very restrictive and exclusive. Someone told me Mate1 is free for women, but I doubt that is true. They usually do that only when starting up and need to attract men.

Hey woman! I hear ya on moving...I live 45 minutes from work and I won't move closer because it's such a hassle! So you're thinking of dating again? Congrats- that's a big decision. I have never had luck with online dating but you might want to check into craigslist.com...free...you can browse your town to see what's out there before paying for something (it's usually the same guys). Yes, my schedule is different now that school is out. NO complaints! I'm still working out and losing weight so I'm happy! Best wishes this month :-)

I've been meaning to get over here and respond to you about the whole online dating thing. My friend Jenn and I were going to set our Match profiles up tonight but she got called away to a meeting and so we postponted it. Figured it would be more fun if we did it together with a bottle of wine! LOL Putting the profile together should be semi easy - it's the dating part that scares me! We can do this though, right? We are going to try Match.com. I did it one other time - it wasn't so bad I guess.

At least this should give us some good material to blog about right? :) LOL We must compare notes soon! I'm kind've nervous though...I'm such a big chicken!

ps I tried e-harmony one time. It took me 45 minutes to do the survey and then at the end told me there were no matches in my area for me. Harsh, man. Harsh. LOL

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
