Personal Ads WITH VIDEO

I got a message from this guy today and WOW... That was a lot of effort. It made me laugh though. Should I get back to him?

Habeebi al-Ghali

So yesterday I decided to try my hand at texting my one true weakness in Arabic since he is Lebanese... He is completely floored and flattered...

Then started answering me in Arabic, which I was not so great at figuring out.

But I think it shows committment.

Despite my date with someone else later on the same day.

My Little Guy

He seems cool though a perpetuates a bit of the stereotype of a rich kid. And he lives in his mom's basement. (REALLY not sure how I feel about that.)

Picked me up from work & drove to get a coffee at Olimpico, which was FANTASTIC btw. He get MAJOR points for liking really good coffee. Plus the Italians there were yelling at each other, so it was an amusing show.

But he didn't stop talking for a second. His stories were all kind of outrageous and I find myself thinking over them and wondering how truthful they are. But at least I was highly entertained.

But then he started talking about his cat and how he was his "Little Guy" and about all the nicknames he had for his cat. Plus how his cat was Jewish like him because he loved bagels. But he was going to buy his a Christmas present.

He then also showed me his gun card.

Um, somehow despite all the weirdness, I'm kind of intrigued. He is really attractive and gentlemanly, but hmmmm....

He did send me a post date text message soon afterwards... And I like that.

So he is part Lebanese, part Italian. ALL GORGEOUS. Owns a women's clothing store near my house. Took me for an amazing dinner, and held my hand the whole time.

I splinted his finger cuz it was broken.

He smelled amazing. Looked fantastic.

Calls me to say he misses me. Texts me that he misses my voice.


Has a sad past, but shared it with me.

But I can't understand him well on the phone. I feel like I am at work...

I haven't seen him in a week and a bit cuz he's been busy & I have been away...

I'm already getting impatient.

Then he texted me that he can't wait to kiss me.

Brit Part Deux

Well, here we go again. Met a guy online, again British... What is it with you Commonwealth folk? I love the Queen and all, but is it better here than jolly ol' England?

Anyway, he seemed nice, wanted to meet to watch the Grey Cup. I was debating it - then was cold & tired after the trek back to the city from visiting my family. Decided to stay home.

He kind of pitched a fit. I offered to meet the next day. He accepted.

Then canceled the next day. Why? Because he drank too much the night before because I had canceled.
Um, what? We don't even know each other yet?!

So I sort of tuned out for awhile... Then he left me a 5 minute voice mail asking me if I was ok, or if something had happened to me. Then the incessant text messages.

Why do I inspire this? Really now?

Should I meet him?

Sooooo about those BRITISH TEETH

They are real. They myth is not just a myth.

He was a great guy. Really. We had a lovely meal at a local Portuguese joint. He did amuse me with his tales of London shenanigans. Really, he did. But then he tried to invite himself over and was almost begging. I was completely knackered. Seriously so. So declined. But also because of the teeth.

Tried to reschedule seeing each other a couple times. But neither of us made much effort.

I like me a great smile.

So tonight I have a real date with a guy who I met about two weeks ago now and who seems lovely. He is British (lovely accent) and seems very sweet. He works an awful lot though (hence the two week delay until our date) but that could be ok since it would give me time for myself, my friends and family...

I still have to decide where we'll be going but he asked to come to my neighborhood, which I like since it's rainy bloody cats & dogs out there...And last night he sent me a text telling me he was looking forward to seeing me this evening. I love little things like that.

The Internet is a SCARY Place

Oh my, I don't know if I like YOU knowing who I am:

JUST OUT OF PRISON is actively seeking a relationship.

STARTING OVER.... just out of prison. Handsome.....(to Mom).
You can make me do anything,.............if you cry.

Soft heart,....hard body; if you have 2 pairs of shoes or less,
can get to the point in 3 seconds, can paint.........(house paint, that is), are gullible, and not terminally ill please respond.

First Date
visit my buddies at kingston (max. security)

Well, it would definitely be the most original first date I suppose!

So here we go. I do not enjoy obsessive people at all. It really does smack of mental instability. There is now a married Indian doctor online stalking me. Let's just hope it stays virtual.

Gray Robe of Seduction

Or maybe not...

I went with two new friends to a burlesque show and had a few drinks, so when the suave older guy I'd met earlier on that breakfast date texted me his address, I thought to myself, "PERFECT!" After all, what better way to get over someone and move on then a good old fashioned SHAG.


I picked up a bottle of wine and a burger at Buns, hopped in a cab and was on my way across town to his swanky abode. Though he neglected to advise me that his road was under construction, so I had to jump out of the cab and hoof it IN HEELS through a construction zone.

I arrived there to him answering the door in a ratty gray terry cloth robe. He refused to drink wine and was downing rum straight up. He showed me his pumpkin art made out of old postage stamps. He also divulged that he had lied about his age. Then he tried to get me to touch him repeatedly. No seduction AT ALL.

He actually grabbed my hand and put it down there. Commando under the robe. UGH. And it was FLACCID. Seriously guy, how is THAT supposed to turn me on?

I totally ran out, mumbling that I'd take a rain check, jumped the bus home (was NOT worth more wasted cab fare) and made it home, almost unscathed.

Lesson learnt: older men who are single are single for a reason.

Moving Right Along

It's amazing that once you make an effort just how many interesting and cool people there are out there.

Two date already set up for this week and a few more tentative plans in the makings. And all with really interesting cool people.

Funny how I am getting more validation and compliments from these new people than I ever did from the last one. Another sign.

A sign also is that despite him telling me that his heart belongs to his ex and that he cannot deal with being with someone else right now he went out on a date apparently. So he is just a liar really. I don't know if he thought he was sparing my feelings. I'd much rather honesty than this.

Either way, I'm still not the person sitting at home every night, crying and getting drunk.

And date number one for tonight is HOT. Smokin'... I have been excited about it since we met yesterday. He's cute, fun, definitely spontaneous and we spoke for hours without getting bore. Plus he's making me practice my French. And that's just plain sexy.

Can't wait!!!!! I'm like a kid waiting for Christmas. It really is quite something.

Online Again

Ok, so there are a few interesting people... but really, I just got sent this:

"I really like your first picture, looks like it's out of a Sears catalogue :P."

Um, what the HELL? This is supposed to be a complement?

10 Things I Hate About You

Last night when I couldn't sleep in the middle of the night because I'd fallen asleep much earlier, I started thinking about the things that I didn't like about my last guy.

Yes I found him charming and funny and really cute at times.

But then there was the fact he flirted on Twitter constantly with other girls. He said it was ok because we'd met on there. (Logic? Zero)

He also would always be playing with his cell phone instead of talking to me in the few hours a week we'd see each other. (Courtesy? Zero)

He slept on MY side of the bed so I'd have to crawl over him to get out of bed since I usually had to get up earlier AND he had the worst heartattack inducing alarm that he'd snooze several times. (Morning & bedside manners? Zero)

He was never on time and this is one of my pet peeves. Especially since he was late because he was ONLINE talking to other people. (Promptness? Zero)

Yes he would sort of make my bed when he left in the morning, but he'd never help do dishes or anything despite the fact I would cook when we stayed in. (I am not a maid. Zero)

Ok, ok... You get the point. I could keep nitpicking. The thing is, I'm not sure if these things are huge or I just find them huge now. Actually, scratch that. I detested the fact that he felt that he could flirt with other women because we'd met that way and that he always seemed preoccupied when we were together and NOT invested in being with me at all. I felt more like a convenience and not really like someone he wanted to be with.

So the trick now is to make a list of the things that are absolutes for me and stick to it. Even if it means being lonely. Winter may be cold but a bad relationship is colder.

Hold On To Your Men

Yup, she's single again. After a few minutes of angry tears, and I really do mean A FEW MINUTES, I was back at it again... Meeting and chatting with someone who seemed uber cool.

I can say that SA wasn't necessarily a bad guy. A douchebag for the way he ended things. Showing up late and giving me back my key, not even letting me say anything and giving me the old "It's not you, it's me" speech.

But it really IS him. Pining over his ex who most likely cheated on him and dumped him FOUR times. Yes, that will get you far in life. Choosing to obsess about someone who clearly does not want you and doesn't even live near you or speak to you. GENIUS.

So I messaged back someone who had sent me a message on OkCupid ages ago. Who I had found interesting but being the loyal gal that I am, I ignored until now.

Yup, t minus 30 minutes and I was moving on. Angry about the mistreatment from SA but ready to go, ON TO THE NEXT!!!

So I guess my heart isn't broken, but my pride may be a bit bruised.
