Dating Escapades

Mr. Wonderful dumped me, saying, "I am so done with you." He has refused to even speak with me. Dumped me during a heated argument. I had gotten upset with him for telling me not to smile.

I have a semi blind date on Saturday. I believe this one is more of a gentleman. I can only hope.

I started writing novels as a way to channel my blabbering mouth. I suspect my personality needs improvement

Anyway, this one is a cowboy. We are meeting in Virginia City, Nevada. Could be very fun. I am going to shop for a cowboy hat for me with him, see the sights, have dinner.

Wish us luck.

Don't blame yourself for the relationship going south. Believe in you and what you want and smile whenever you want. You will find the right partner

Have fun on Saturday, it sounds like it would be fun with a cowboy. Ok, I'm from the East, so to me a cowboy would be fun and a gentleman. Don't be too sad over the dump, he loss out on a girl who likes to smile. Unless it was during a funeral, what is wrong with smiling

This really is so funny. Iíve been doing mental gymnastics thinking of my many personality imperfections. Too many to even consider. Itís exhausting. Iíve clearly spent too much time alone with myself.

I'm routing for you. It seems so surreal that people are dating . My county is still in the color purple so I don 't think we are allowed to date even if I had any suitors!!! Did you meet online or through friends?

"Suitors"

"Suitors" is a word that deserves frequent use! I LIKE that word. Word of the day!

Plus: The good thing about cowboys -- the boots. I wear boots all the time, as I believe wearing them partially makes up for my lack of zestiness.

four years, and I don't think we have had any disagreements that rose to the level of "heated." I do remember those kinds of arguments with my last ex-husband, the doctor of psychology who thought he was the last word on everything in the universe and would never let me have my own reality. Glad you got away from that fool. It's funny, isn't there a cliche about men who are always telling women (particularly women they don't know) to smile? He was telling you NOT to smile?

Good luck with the next candidate. Remember, be picky and never lower your standards! I once dated a cowboy from Montana who was a farrier. He played the fiddle. I met him when I sang in a country band. Loved the fiddle, but the cowboy did not last long.

Blind date

I think the old silver mining town of Virginia City in Nevada is a fabulous place for a blind date. Such an interesting, historical, and fun place to tour and just walk around! Even if the date doesn't pan out, the town will be fascinating.

I hope you have a great time!

I was dancing because i lost weight and could fit into my size 6 jeans. I told him. He said "good job." He watched below my face, then scanned up. He did not find my smile matching his idea of my dance.

I became very angry and hurt because i had reminded him just one day prior that i have had long time periods with no smile. (Used to suffer with recurrent major depressive disorder) I had shared that i felt i was starting to go down the rabbit hole again. After that share he said he needed help. And could i come over, dig 2 holes for plants i had given him and install a blind. I said little that day in reply.

Having his own struggles with the big D i was stunned at his remark. Upon the "don't smile" i asked, "why?" He answered, "you look goofy." That began an ugly exchange, later the telephone dump. Still have not spoken to him.

My personality needs improvement. If i had felt respect for him I am sure i could have handled that dancing smile scene in a composed and classy fashion.

We argued a lot. I am ok.

It is ok to admit that you are not perfect and be aware of your imperfections but please donít say that your personality needs improvement. I believe people have different personalities and that they are innate to that person, not something to be developed or improved. You are who you are and should not have to apologize for that.

Of support.

Okay, maybe my personality is what it is. I like the idea of full self acceptance. This is what i need to work on.

Talking too much
Appearing like I am not listening
Telling too much
Not playing my cards close to my chest
Losing my temper easily
Being too tender hearted but mean at the same time
Doing too much for others
Speaking too loudly, too much "drama" voice inflections
Comparing one guy with another
