Dating - No More

I don't think I'm cut out for this dating lark.

I guess I'm scared really.  When you've been so long on your own, the thought of offering yourself up, as it were, to someone you have never met, is pretty frightening.

At first it seems easy just chat -you can say anything you like. Talk as if the guy was an old friend, flirt a little maybe.  But this isn't a good idea. Best to take it slowly and steadily - find out lots about him.

Let him ask questions of you. If he doesn't  then he's probably:

  1. not interested in you 
  2. very busy at the moment
  3. a supreme egotist
...but don't do what I did - tell him he is able to relate better to chickens than people!

No - that never works...

Don't' give up - you find things where you least expect them. Sorry it didn't work out this time.

Honesty is the best policy! :)

I think your three points are spot on. See, you are a wise woman! You sound like you know what you want. And those 3 points are applicable for anyone you meet actually. Even when I meet new people, those points are a good way to measure things in the beginning of a friendship or relationship.

I think honesty is the best policy Penny - you were right to tell him what you thought if it was true!!

I'm very very cynical about the dating roundabout. I'm sure something wonderful will happen given time, without so much effort.
