OldSailor, I think you missed the point, I don't mind that he didn't have a drink, that didn't bother me at all, in fact I have been surrounded all my life by alcoholics and I know that alcoholics accept that others drink, I know AA; the point was, if he didn't drink or dance, we probably should have planned the evening differently for our first date so as not to go to a bar with a live band playing where I am then inclined to groove, which I have no problem doing with or without a man by the way, and he did not seem to mind watching by the way, for our first date; but the biggest point of it all WAS THAT I HAD A DATE - WHOOOOHOOOOOO
Blondharleygirl do not worry about having a drink unless he made an issue of it. I am talking from experience as I am a recovering alcoholic for 27 years. When I take someone out I expect them to act naturally that includes having a drink if they want one. I will give you a warning when we get to the club that if we are going to dance be ready to be imbarressed as I never learned how. But I am willing to make a fool of myself if you are willing. I think you were too hard on yourself.
Because we chose not to drink doesn't mean that we do not know how to have fun.
Back to the subject: Hey All Ya'll, guess what??? I had a date!! Now, never mind the fact that once we got to the restaraunt and I ordered my margarita he told me he didn't drink, and then never mind the fact that after we got to the bar where the band was playing he told me he didn't dance, NONE OF THAT MATTERS CAUSE I HAD A DATE!! WHOOOOHOOOOO.
No, I am not seeing him again, but I am not running him in the ground either - he was a nice guy, just not my kind of nice guy.....
You said it all Thunder!!
Suns going to shine and we are all going to find better things to do!! Already Started in Cali,,, 80's in the Valley and the runs have started!!! We are getting the Boats primed... and the Birds are starting to tic me off in the mornings again...to much noise!!!
Angel, Thunder, thanks for letting me know my mind wasn't gone after all..... lol. I suggested that they have a forum menu so we can easily find our way back to those that we answered. Do you think they might just listen? Well they better or the Message Board will just be one more forum to be lost in this maze...... sheesh!
LadyV...lol, Sis! It's getting kinda difficult for this simple minded country girl! I just have too much fun trying to stay up on everyone...so many characters to interact with here! lol Ride Safely Everyone!
Thanks for the welcome back Angel..... geez, I get lost wading through the maze. Once we had about 10 forums. Now there are over 100 in romance alone. I post something and then it gets lost. I can't find my way back... by the time it finally shows up 3 or 4 days later, the mindset has changed and I am off somewhere else. So, I am not always gone.... sometimes it is just a state of being dazed and confused???????? How does everyone else keep all of these forums straight????? Tell me it isn't just me!!!!! Lol. Ride safe and ride free everyone.
BlondeHarley...I couldn't agree with you more! Why bother with a 2nd date if the first wasn't what he wanted? Because he needed to be the one in control and making rude comments probably, somehow, made him feel more of a man...foolish person that he is! Makes him less of a man in my eyes! I'm afraid Redd is more of a lady than I would have been! lol
Well..... my motto???? When the going gets tough, the tough jump on their bikes and RIDE! Redd? There is a better one out there for you. Until you find him???? Enjoy the wind!
Spring has sprung and bk is going to start thinning out here in these forums. To all of you taking it to the streets, ride free and stay safe out there!
Man, it is conversations like this between buetiful and obviously inteligent women that make it hard for simple good men, such as myself, to have a women believe that he can be a good man. I am sorry your date went bad and hope you dont lose hope in the rest of us. I am starting to agree with blondharleygirl, dating does suck.:>
Hmmmmmm...before I get so upset over Redd's bad date,I'd like to hear the other side before i make any judgements.
Sorry things didn't work out Redd. Just remember, don't be too negative about this disappointment...just means it wasn't meant to be.
there's lots of fish in the sea.
