Slow & Steady

20 lbs lost in 2009...

And by the way, that's 10 lbs lost since meeting Mr Listener. Good to see that he hasn't negatively impacted my world.

Working on my dating profile, going to do a little verbal spring cleaning, and list myself as available again.

He has called me 3 times, each time to discuss very mundane, friend-like things. I'm OK with that. And thank you all for being supportive. It has truly been an interesting experience getting to know him. I'm trying to keep the good (knowing someone so close by) and leave the bad (not dating potential anymore). Since having said what I said on Sunday night, I feel better. Less pressure on myself, less walking on eggshells. And it will be easier to stop thinking of dating him once I accept to meet someone else for a date. I know that's how my mind functions.

I do think, though, that I will heed the universe's warning and stay away from Scorps in the dating world. They make good friends, but lousy partners, for my sign Sags. Maybe the 5th warning will stick.

I wouldn't give up on all Scorpios yet. Remember that two people with incompatible sun signs may have highly compatible rising signs (ascendants) or moon signs that can make the difference between a bad match and a good match with a bit of an “edge” that keeps things interesting!
My husband and I are like this. His stable, quiet, logigal self is the ROCK to my emotional, sensitive, passionate crazy self. If you read anything according to our match together, it says our marriage is doomed. Whatever! Celebrating our 12 year anniversary this Saturday. We met online in 1996! (before the big internet dating companies)
Keep your mind open, cause you really never know. (I love Astrology too, and I have my own set of Rider Tarot cards and a set of Angel cards.)

Congratulations on the 20 pounds so far! That is truly fantastic. :)

Sounds like you're in a good place. Get out there, update that profile and start something new! And of course tell us all about it. :)

Pretty awesome. It's true isn't it? It's so much easier to go slow. Or, as my best girlfriend says, "take it sleazy..."

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl

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.
