Dork-o-Rama: The Random Thoughts of a Total Goofball

Embracing the Dork Side....Because Life is Too Short to Take Yourself Too Seriously

Well, that

God, I hate being such a cliche.

So, the guy has suddenly vanished. I've reached out a few times since I last heard from him (and everything seemed entirely fine) but the silence now is deafening. It's clear to me that I've been blown off.

I am, as you might expect, perplexed. And a little more sad than I expected. It's rare for me to meet a guy I like as much as I liked him, especially online. But I know it's better to find out now that it's not going to work out than later, when I'm in even deeper.

I know it's uncomfortable to end things in an honorable fashion, but just disappearing with no explanation is so much worse.

I give up.

I hate to say this but I've heard a similar story from many of my women friends who do the online dating thing.

When my best friend's man was not treating her well, her son (then 14) said to her, "You know Mom, when guys like this get a woman like you they think they can easily find another woman like you and that's where they're wrong."

I think some men's egos become inflated by online dating (all that attention via email!!!) and they are slow to develop relationships because there are so many other "women like you" out there......

just sayin'.

Out of the mouth of babes ... (Janine's friend's son).

Onward indeed.

Your strength is legendary, your kindness extraordinary and your grace overwhelming. Beauty AND brains ARE a deadly combination - and most can't handle it. Seriously, FTG.

So weird. But onward is right. This is soooooo very much his loss.

I love your positive attitude - looking forward is always best.

I'm your friend - I will look backwards for you and kick him in the shins when he stumbled across my path. I like you that much!

You would think that after a certain age this sort of childish bullshit would stop. Well, I'm almost 50, and I've still got the same issues as you have, and they're the same ones we had in the freakin' eighties.

Why can't everyone be as mature as we are?

So sorry to hear that this guy was just another typical jerk. You deserve better and you WILL find it. Have you tried It's not dating per se but you might meet some interesting people who may know someone to set you up with. It's a thought. I know you're busy with your own social life. Why can't we just go to the ManMart and pick the one we want and be done with it?? :)
