It's been a minute, queens, since I posted, last time on Reddit (goodbye, I'm done, logged out, so done with all the woman hating). I went back on OLD due to boredom, but it blew up, and I have a scrotation for the first time ever in my life. Now what?!? That's mostly rhetorical, but if any queens have some advice or suggestions, I'm always more than willing to listen. Mostly this is just a report. I'm back in the game!
A couple of men I'm talking to in DMs, and it's good. We are friends already and it feels effortless. One I've met in person (he drove a couple of hours to meet me), and he was completely proper and respectful and kind; the other is very willing to meet me, and is also willing to drive a couple of hours. I like that already; it's the "if they wanted to, they would" energy. I have a feeling these two, if not partner material (I haven't made up my mind yet), have the possibility to be friends for the long haul, and that makes me happy. I'm one who always starts as friends first, developing what we have in common, with TONS of conversation; that's how I vet. Both of these men seem kind, level-headed, older, experienced, and like me, in no hurry for anything. We're vetting each other. No rush, and I like that a lot.
One I just met recently and I already know him: he's my vet tech! I always thought he was extremely handsome, but to match with him on OLD was a very pleasant surprise. I'm getting over a sinus infection so a bit under the weather, but I've made it clear I like Mexican, so I'm hoping for a proper date -- for the first time in about 25-30 years! This guy strikes me as someone who is "single at heart" (Bella DePaulo's term, love it). He's around my age, maybe slightly younger, and has only ever really had one years-long relationship. For him, it's mostly work and then going home, so we'll see. I don't get a red flag from that, since I did that, too, for decades. We'll see if he has hobbies, and if he has depth of character, if he can hold a conversation and likes to talk. Having been married the first time to a man who really didn't know how to talk or express emotions, I know now what that looks and sounds like. Anyway, I hope this guy is also at the very least a friendly acquaintance if not a friend, since he takes care of my kitties. He certainly has a way with animals, and I do admire that.
The last one on the scrotation asked me immediately if I wanted to go out, so we're set to do that soon, too, which is nice. I expect at least a nice dinner and conversation. We only just met online a day or so ago, so just started talking. I hope to learn more about him in the next week or so, then meet.
I must say, it was a bit of an ego boost to get several dozen likes, even if I weeded through most of the men in about five minutes, so thanks for the ego boost, guys. Onward and upward. It feels good, if different, to be desired by someone who isn't my late husband, Jack, but life goes on. And it feels good, queens, I honestly admit, to have a few guys in my scrotation, so I don't get attached to just one. Eggs are not to be put all in one basket. And it's good to be here, AWAY from Reddit!
