M.I.A. and Lurkers

Hey there.

Today I decided to tidy up my blog list (work's slow) and found that nearly 25 of the blogs I used to read either no longer exist or have not be active for over a year.  Where is everyone?  

I love a good read so, if you have been lurking quietly up until now please pop in and say hello in my comments section.  I always love checking out new blogs.  And, if you haven't got a blog, pop in and say hi anyway.  

I tell you all my stuff.....I need to stalk you back!

The usual fuck around....

So, it's Friday.
I have 3 kid free nights and NO FUCKING DATE!
The story thus far....
Mr Canuck called me Tuesday night. We chatted for about half an hour. T'was nice. Very nice accent I must say. He was called away by his daughter after a bit so wound up by asking if he could call me tomorrow (Wednesday) to organise coffee.
Wednesday came and went and no call. I did note however that he was online most of the day on the dating site. This shits me. I tried to kid myself that he was online waiting to chat to me, but I knew he was not. Bugger it. He's one of those guys who sits on there all day at work. I don't like it at all.
I'm perfectly happy to accept him chatting to several girls at once, as that's what I attempted (unsuccessfully) to do. But to just be logged in all day? Nup.
Anyway, by yesterday morning I was really pissed off and decided...as I usually do after a whole week on line, to kill my profile and disappear..which I did. Now this wasn't just because he didn't call..it's my usual modus operandi you see...I have the attention span of a goldfish when it comes to most internet dating scenarios.
I received quite a lengthy text from him later that morning, apologising for not calling (family crisis) and that he would like to call me later in the day if I was 'still keen'. I advised him that I was and that I looked forward to hearing from him.
*insert sound of chirping cricket here*
So......still haven't heard a bloody thing. I was a little worried as the family crisis (and I was given specifics) had potential to get significantly worse, and decided not to jump to conclusions but checked this morning and he's there..chat ready, online, on the dating site.
Jeeez....why do men keep disappointing me?
He does not deserve my lusciousness. None of them do.

It's a toss up

I've found myself kinda 'man-juggling' at the moment. Don't know how that happened.

Actually no..sorry I'm not officially man-juggling as I'm only chatting to them online. I don't usually chat to more than one guy at a time as it all gets too much. I imagine ACTUAL man-juggling, ie dating more than one guy at a time..would be total madness.

Although, I did accidentally have sex with two guys on the same weekend once....but I don't think that counts as only one was a 'date' (on the Saturday night), the other was my yummy bonk-buddy Brad (Sunday afternoon), who unfortunately moved to London a couple of years ago. He calls occasionally.... *sigh*

Ok...sorry where was I?

..so...yep chatting to 3 guys..considering a 4th. Now I know there'll be those of you out there laughing at me as maybe that's how most people do it. Is it? Is that how it's supposed to be done? I have no idea. I just know that I have always preferred to get to know one person at at time. But I think that needs to change.

As my mate Spiffo said, "how do you know what you like, if you've got nothing to compare it to". So that's what I'm doing. And you know what? I think it might work. I should naturally gravitate towards whoever I enjoy chatting too most.

I've already deleted one guy. He wanted to be 'just friends' and didn't want any "sex or complications".

I thought this would be nice for a change. We chatted a couple of times...all very nice. However, I found that without the 'carrot' that is sex, dangling in front of my nose.......I lost interest in him very fast. My mouse seemed to keep hovering, all by itself, over towards the 'delete contact' button, like one of those pointy things on a ouija board. And then....he was gone.

So at the moment we have - 1. Mr Tall (6'7"), 2. Mr Canuck (he's Aussie/Canadian) and 3. Mr Shirtless (he he) .

No definite thoughts yet although, I think Mr Tall is a bit too much into pubs and stuff. I'm over pubs. Plus he's got very young kids....I'm over that too. Mr Canuck has a 14 year old girl (EDIT - found out since he also has a 16 yr old boy and a 4 yr old girl) and Mr Shirtless has no kids at all.

If I get too confused I think I may need to run a poll!

Date with Triumph Boy Part 2

I'm going to cut a long story short as I've totally lost interest in this chapter of my dating disasters (scroll down a couple of posts for Part 1 if you missed it).

Date was good. He made it clear he wanted to see me again but apparently he forgot how to use the phone and every evening and morning after our date he was there..online, waiting to chat to me...on the dating site. No calls, no texts. 

On the Tuesday night we established that seeing each other again was going to be tricky as we have our kids on opposite weekends but I was kinda hoping we could have a discussion about the logistics and how we'd sort it out. Triumph Boy was not pro-active in that area at all. He was quite happy just chatting away. I got pissed off and he could tell (even online). 

The following is what ensued (actual transcript...only the names have been changed to protect the guilty).

Triumph Boy says:
you ok...?

Frankie says:
I just can't really do the chat thing anymore. It's ok when you haven't met but I don't really like being 'internet girl' that much.

Frankie says:
I only come on here to chat to you

Triumph Boy says:

Frankie says:

Triumph Boy says:
therein lies the big fault with modern communication.....

Frankie says:
how so?

Triumph Boy says:
its all this shit.....

Triumph Boy says:

Triumph Boy says:

Triumph Boy says:
blah blah

Frankie says:
we get used to these techno ways and no-one wants to communicate for real anymore?

Triumph Boy says:
i hate techo....

Frankie says:
well you are on here every day

Triumph Boy says:
otherwise, i wont talk to you at all,,,,

Frankie says:
why wont' you talk to me at all?

Frankie says:
what do you mean?

Triumph Boy says:
over it

Triumph Boy says:
when will i see you to talk to you face to face....?

Frankie says:
well I'm sure we can figure something out. You just seem resigned to the fact that we won't

Frankie says:
i'm sure in the olden days they worked something out

Triumph Boy says:
not at all....ill demonstrate what oasis means to me.....

Triumph Boy has removed you from their contacts. You can no longer send any messages to this member.


So. That was that. At first I thought he was joking. Then I thought he had done it to please me and would ring me right away....nope. I realised later that night that he'd not only deleted me but he'd deleted his whole dating profile.

What a fucking dickhead! Seriously, I need another child having a dummy spit, like I need a hole in the head.

So that was that. At least I thought it was. He waited a few days, until Friday night and called me, three times. I rejected his calls. I didn't hear from him again until last week, when he randomly called me on Tuesday night. I didn't answer that call either.

His profile is back up now.

The end.

EDIT - and furthermore! I rescind my decision to NOT have sex on the first date! I've said it before and I'll say it again. If I'd never had sex on the first date..I'd never have had sex!! What a waste of an awesome cleavage. The girls deserve better.
