A lady that I "met" online through Craigslist - I placed an ad and she was one that responded - well we have been writing each other for some time now. Months and months anyway.
The problem is that she lives in Flagstaff and I, of course, live in Phoenix. We talked about everything in mostly PM's for quite a while and though I thought we could definitely make a good fit with each other - I finally had to come to the conclusion that attempting to date someone that doesn't live in the same metro area probably isn't going to work for me.
We talked yesterday - she said I am too busy for her, but really, I can't just drop what I'm doing and drive up to Flagstaff, plus I don't really LIKE driving much anymore - and that's really my problem with it. We parted ways amiably.
I gave some thought to this before this conversation yesterday. There are millions of people in the Phoenix area, surely there is somewhere here that I could meet up with and hopefully we are compatible with each other. I hope the best for her, I truly do, she is a great lady/person and it shows through the time we've spent "together" chatting in IM's.
But, once it was mutually agreed upon to part ways, had another ad up on Craigslist. This one a bit different than most of what I see on there - and yes it got a lot of attention. So I am attempting to figure out if any of those respondents are something that would work out mutually - only way to do that is by a lot of correspondence back and forth.
Oops, one wants to speak on the phone later. I'm far more preferential to a lot of writing back and forth first, but that's just me. I would rather just go meet a person, in-person, than doing endless chatting on the phone. Might as well speak together - I don't really care the place - a Starbucks or something similar would work for me.
I'm thinking I'm ready to start dating again - I say that and then something with the ex comes up and then I remember why I am divorced and not with a woman. BUT - there is a built-in need for companionship with the opposite sex, I won't deny that and I won't even try.
Huge time lapse = got busy doing other things = I'm tired and ready to go to bed.
Ava' good evening!
