Dan, my new man-interest, writes:

"Lady, you are the most fabulous looking, articulate, funny and intelligent woman I have ever seen.
I was stopped in my tracks.
Let me send a pic and explain.
I'll send a pic, I promise."
Dan

NOTE: I'm sorry if I left some of you out, in the title. You're in my heart! (big deal....)

Ladies and Jellyspoons,
I'm not usually easily swayed by an email, (I've developed a little bit of cynicism, as is usual as a veteran online dater) but I've been getting emails from a guy lately, (from an alternate site) that are just the most unique, confident, cute and flattering notes....

Dan, my new man-interest, writes:

Nice ring to it.
Kate.
Where can I send my ugly mug, my attractive, creative friend?
-------------------------------

Thanks for your e-address, Kate. It's nice to have run into you.
The friendly, nice looking, gentlemanly mug will be on route shortly.
Enjoy the sunshine today, pretty lady.


I can hardly wait to hear from him each day! It's like candy on a monitor! This is the kind of feeling MM members should feel when they are wooed by another member! Like SloMo felt. Goofy and giddy! lol

This is the kind of email I long to receive, with the promise of an adoring date who will treat me like gold because he's interested in ME, not just interested in me today and interested in another woman tomorrow. And you can be sure, I will give as much as I get!

Dan writes:

Good morning Kate.
The Mug is attached.
Sorry, I don't want to come across as arrogant. That's not me.
I'm just being careful, because my industry is small and I'm one of the guys who is in the press more than I like. I own an agency downtown.
Have a great day. Enjoy the weather.

PS Tell me more, pretty lady!

Swoon, faint, sigh......

Dan writes:

Gorgeous and talented.
I'm impressed Kate.
Really impressed.
I need to know more, but only if I'm across from you.

Bublblubuububblebubbub....
I'm turning into a babbling idiot. LOL

He has a really nice, good-looking, friendly face and a great smile. I saved the photo he sent me and thought, "Could I suspend judgement and pickiness and truly spend some quality time with this face? Could I ... kiss him?"

The answer is an unequivocal "No problem!"

And finally, last night ......

Dan writes:
"Love stories never have endings"
I'm a sap too.
I'll be calling.
Dream.

Now, I don't know how it will turn out, but I figured, how are we to know if MM works if we don't share? Also, if SlowMoe can do it, ....... there's hope for me! He's my roll model! lol


I just had to share it with my MM family. I'll keep you posted.

Any advice from y'all so I don't screw it up? I'm not asking you as "a bunch of single people," I'm asking the men because they are one of him, and the girls are all gorgeous so maybe you have some feminine wiles you'd like to share. lol

This could be where we come to gush over our latest love interest. Feel free to share and fish for some good ol' down-home, wise, constructive advice ..... from "family."

Well, I'd like to say it's good news but, my new favourite man turned out to be a guy who doesn't know what he really wants.


Dear Katie, I think he does want you, he just does not know how to arrange his life accordingly.
You are doing the right thing by letting it go now, rather than later, because he might need months, if not years, to sort himself out. I think it is better for both of you this way. You will only feel more and more frustrated and he will feel increasingly guilty and stressed.

Here is a major advantage for bowing out now: ralationships with seperated men are usually super complicated: they are dealing with more issues than divorced men and they expect the new girlfriend to help them deal with the fights about alimony, custody, pets, tea cups, etc. as well as with the tremendous emotional stress involved in a divorce..
Also, their wives hate the girlfriends of their husbands more than they hate those of their exes! And finally: chances are better that they kiss and make up during the seperation than after the divorce.
Been there, done that!

So, KatieGirl: go for the next adventure, but try to steer clear of the seperated guys!

PS To the MM men: of course the same applies to seperated women, so there is no need for you guys to get upset now ....


Hello beautiful GrapeGrrrl,

I'm back in the saddle again! I'm at another ... uh ... location, and I get 20 to 40 emails a day! What the heck is the matter with the men on MM??? Are they all snoozing? lol

Maybe I'll wait until I actually get taken out on a real date next time, before I get attached to a man. Words are just a bunch of blah blah until they are honoured.

Stay lovely, as always.

So sorry Katie...I have to admit when he didnt call after he got back from vacation or wherever he went...I didnt think it sounded to promising. A man who has real interest in a woman, is eager to contact her and would have found 5 minutes in his schedule, no matter how busy! If he's that busy...who wants that anyway? You want to be, if not the main priority, a close one in his life. Not low man on the totem pole, always after children, after work, after.....it's all about balance and some haven't mastered that concept. But I didnt want to be cynical and put a damper on your high spirits.

I won't date a separated man for all the reasons everyone posted. So katie girl, as I tell my daughter...time to put on your "big girl pants" and move forward. If your interested in the man...let him know if and when he's available, (providing you still are)to contact you at that time.


Thanks BB,

How can you give advice and aspirate underwater at the same time?

Namaste Rob! Maybe I should invoke Ganesha to help me overcome the obstacle of not being able to find my lover-man! lol



Our answer is more ancient than that! And perhaps lost for eons. Don't get me wrong, I find the concept of the Hindu elephant-deity riding a mouse very amusing as a visual, and I like what he stands for. I enjoy practicing yoga, and the concept of inner lights shining to each other, but for a true answer to this, we must return to the more ancient Tao. Complementary alternating forces of Yin and Yang, dark and light, female and male, which maintain the balance of the cosmos. Yes, this is what we must all seek in our soulmates!!!

:o)

Yeah, I shoud have realized ... separated means MARRIED.

I don't get it though. Is it possible that a man could be satisfied with just flirting online? He told me who he was! He's a prominent guy in Toronto! Why would he do that and risk his reputation?

I'm sorry I told him who I was too because I'm sure SOME day we'll meet at a function or something, and I'd think he'd be really embarrassed. I don't know why he isn't embarrassed NOW!

You know what he said? He's never even MET me but because I wanted to meet and not blather on the stupid Internet forever, he said he's too busy to meet me and he's sorry and it's NOT me, it's him! God, people make jokes about that phrase!

I really liked him. And he ended up lying to me and acting like a jerk. Damn, at what age do you stop being a 15 year old and start acting like a real man?

I started this thread with the hopes of telling it like it was, good or bad, to sort of blog my experiences. It hurt me that he turned out to be so NOT who he claimed to be ... but, I wanted to share anyway.

Well, he missed out on a great girl.



Yes, seperated = married with confusion! The internet gives a level of anonymousness, when you get face to face, then you are no longer anonymous. You are no longer toying with the idea, you actually have to deal with it. That scares the hell out of people that aren't ready for a real relationship.

Did he look like Castanza on Jerry Seinfeld? That "It's not you, it's me" sounds awfully familiar. In the end, it doesn't matter who it was, it just "IS NOT"...

Real men stop acting like 15 year old jerks about 12, if they are mature enough, some goto their graves with it. They are in good company with the elder adolescent females that seem to abound. Can't they have their own dating site??? Hell, I would almost donate $20/mth for that !!!

LOL, Cliche Time:

He did miss out, but there are none so blind as those who do not wish to see. They say better late than never, however, I believe, it is better now than later!!! Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start all over again!!!

You are not alone btw. Many of us that seek are often frustrated by those that don't or those have no concept of it at all...

Forget the fool, not worth a second thought. Do something nice for yourself. Hot bubble bath, candles, and a nice glass of wine might be an excellent call. Sit back a bit, and dream of the man that one day will be worthy of sharing it with you!


Namaste Sister and Much Love!!!

He has emailed me many times since my last post. His emails are always well composed, funny, a little cheeky-flirty, and irresistably darling. Mostly they've said he thinks I'm great, thinks I'm sexy, wants to meet me, wants to treat me like gold because he's a hopeless romantic. He's a great guy, he loves my creativity. Every time he has said something like this I've responded, "Well, let's meet, big guy!"

Well, I didn't hear from him for the past 2 days. So I decided, I have been pursuing him long enough and I don't even LIKE chasing men. He's lucky I even took the time to push this meeting. It only works when men pursue women. (Sorry Rob) It's a male ego/power thing.

So, I wrote him a note today.

"I've really enjoyed talking to you, Dan. I wish you success in your search for love."

He wrote back. He apologized but said he just doesn't think meeting me holds priority over his job, his family, his kids and his time. He said he's still interested and thinks I'm fabulous.

Well, I don't need a bloody rock to fall on my head. It's over. There's no way I can compete with those 4 obstacles he's thrown between me and him. He likes flirting, he loves to pretend he's a charmer, and don't get me wrong ... he IS REALLY charming, but he is afraid to take it to the next step.

Also, he's only seperated, not divorced, so I suspect he's not ready to let go yet. I don't know. But, I liked him alot, and I've had my little cry, and now I'm ready to move on.

Story of my life.


He's not worthy of you Katie. Time to say NEXT. Borrowing from another thread, if you do meet him don't go commando. Sounds like he wants to add another notch to his headboard to me.

Unlike my normal soapbox where most of the stories that the women share about an experience with a man that I have a very similar experience with a woman, I agree with you for the most part that men do love the chase. It comes from eons ago when men were the hunters according to popular sociologists.

Persistancy got through the illusion and reveals the true, and the truth set you free...

Being just "seperated" is a very confusing time for most people, and typically it is not a time that they are emotionally available.

I am so sorry that this didn't work out for you !!!! :o(

Hi Babies!
Sorry I've been a no show, but I'm moving and packing stuff up and my room mate didn't pay the Internet so it got cut off and now it's back and so am I ....

The mystery romance continues!

He came back from his vacation, I was held up with packing and hiring movers and junk and days had gone by and I never heard from him! So I emailed him and asked, "Whatever happened to you?"

He emailed me right back and said he was totally swamped when he got back, with two weeks worth of work and he was interviewing General Managers and hadn't had a chance to email me.

Well, I can be a little petulent at times and I wanted a better explanation than THAT! So a couple of days went by and he has since emailed me and said he wants to meet very soon. He sent me a funny questionaire and told me to answer the questions and he'd decide where to take me out.

So .... I think this week I may actually hear from him, and if I'm lucky ... finally MEET him! I'm really intrigued, and he IS probably well-to-do, (but he isn't on this site). But I'm NOT going to chase him! That's the advantage of having your own money, (or, at least, INCOME)

It NEVER works when I chase a guy. It has to be the other way around. If he does the chasing, then he can't say MY motives are .... unsavoury. And I don't mind if HIS are! LOL

If the thunderstorm in Toronto tonight allowed him to, he flew home from vacation tonight. The clock is ticking!

katiegirl,

Where have you disappeared ? We are looking for an update " Grin " I think you have hit the bulls eye.

Katie, my darling girl.. I am SOOOOO tickled that someone has found you!! You are one of my most favorite people here, and I do so look forward to hearing how things go when you meet this new man in your life.
I just found this thread today and was going to suggest the "Google" thingy, but since you have done that already, then go with your heart and most definitely be yourself. He will fall like a ton of bricks. LOL When you meet for the first time, nervousness is expected, and I'm sur he'll be just as nervous as you. Sometimes that's a good thing. Just have fun and have no expectations!! Luv ya, Girlie!!!

Katie,
It is possible in Canada to get a passport on a rush basis - it costs around $200 but it is possible (although I think "rush" is less than 5 days). Though you don't need a passport to travel to the US or Mexico, I would never go anywhere outside of Canada without my passport. And I know that most of my friends who travel feel the same way. Even if we are just taking a day trip to the US, we use our passports. It just feels safer, and it's much more convenient, as all of your ID is contained in one small booklet. Just my thoughts, but perhaps your new beau was thinking along the same lines?

I don't know about the law in Canada. But I don't think you will be getting out of Mexico without a Visa or birth certificate. And I am a seasoned traveler of Mexico. It's bad enough when you have a passport to get out of there. If Canadians have those rights etc. I should consider changing my US citizenship. Canada is looking better all the time.


My sister has no passport and she was in Mexico last year in Cancun so I don't think you need a passport but need a birth certificate or something like this.

Cazador is correct....sorry to say Katie


Here is a copy from Passport Canada


Travel tips

Home > Travel tips > Trip planning
Trip planning
Planning to travel to the U.S. or Mexico?

Although the Government of Canada recommends that Canadians travelling to any destination outside of Canada carry a valid passport, it is not mandatory for travel to the United States or Mexico. To date, there is no policy change requiring Canadians to travel with their passports to these destinations. However, you must have sufficient identification to satisfy border officials of your identity and citizenship.

Sorry to burst the bubble but he sounds like a big player. Don't be fooled

Katie you know it is natural to be nervous. He*ll when we go on a date with someone we have already met most of us are nervous. You are a beautiful, vivacious lady and you will do find just being yourself. Just do something simple. Don't cook a 4 course meal you might burn the roast..LOL Just be Katie!.....


Stat, I'm so nervous, I would burn the hot water! He's taking me OUT for dinner. Smart man. LOL

I've been watching the food network for new ideas. I was a great cook way back when I was married, but my ex used to eat cheese even if it had mold on it, so I didn't have to try very hard.

One evening, at Christmas dinner, my ex told the family, "I could eat ANYTHING right now! I could eat your shoe!" So my mom, who was an evil little 4' 11" woman, put the "Pope's Nose" on his plate along with a big scoop of dressing.

We watched him through the whole dinner, waiting for him to say something like, "Alright, who's the smarta*ss who put this on my plate," but he never did. Finally, to our shock, he stuck his fork in the thing and shoved it in his mouth! He even tried to chew it up and was picking out tiny bones and cartilage and stuff! I nearly hurled! (I have a ridiculously weak stomach.)

Well, when we all looked so astounded, he asked and we told him Mom put the turkey's bu*tt (tail) on his plate as a joke and he ate it! As far as I know, to this day, his entire family play the "Pope's Nose" prank on someone at Christmas and Thanksgiving dinner. We started a wicked tradition!

LOL
