    If we were to split up I suspect I would probably find myself in a LTR at some point. How long after the split would be the question.

    Last night's dream involved me dating and having to choose between two men who were interested in me. I woke up exhausted from trying to figure out the better choice.

    It also involved me having driving over a long elevated highway over water in AZ, having to swim out of a metal cage (kinda like a shark cage) that fell into the water, and winning 2k on a scratch off ticket that I then had to share with an ex-boyfriend who gave me the scratch off.

    I want what you're taking.

    My dream last night included a pier that the planning dept. had to build a railing. It turned out to be craftsman style woodwork and very elaborate.

    No roses but the choice was between a super-hottie and less attractive but nicer guy. I was leaning towards the nicer guy but lord, the other guy was hawt!

    Exhausted? Must have been quite some 'test drive', huh?

    I was hoping that would happen but no. The exhaustion was emotional from trying to overcome my shallow ways!

    Your poor planner. He will get the rath of hormones & emotional twists both at home and at work.

    I am single again, been on my own since last summer after 12 years of marriage, we were fresh out of college when we got married. While the whole divorce thing has ended up as well as it could (he’s not a d-bag, just has made a lot of immature mistakes over the years that have led to way too much baggage between us), I haven’t wanted to give up my precious free time to dating yet. It is sooo nice to sit and read a book or watch whatever the heck I want to watch, and not have to clean up after someone else.

    Hahaha! I printed out a letter I was writing to someone and while proof-reading it I found that I had added an extra O to PO Box. Heeheee

    I've caught a few episodes of that show. You can easily tell why those guys are single. If they have money and still can't find someone, they must be real winners.

    I've seen the show a few times and it is really interesting how shallow some of these people are. There will be a 58 yo creepy, lifted, hairy dude who only wants to date 20-25 yos who are models. Yeah, that's going to work out.


    For now the only rose I have is for my Hubby. /corny Now if I can work any of you guys into my dreams I'll let you know!

    This is where I am, after 19 years of marriage and 6 years separated before divorce was finalized. There are some things I miss, but for now, they're not worth sacrificing my solitude. Maybe I'll want to date after my youngest is out of high school, maybe I won't.
