@mucha in the works, takes some planning when you’re two hours away! But I think soon!August 15, 2015 at 10:24 pm #372182ktfranParticipant
Yay ver!!!! I hope you go out again soon.
6 to 7 months is plenty of time. For most, if they use that as a reason not to become involved with someone I call bs and think it’s an excuse/ easy way out.
So, you know the day I freaked out because guy left work early with a female coworker. Yeah. He texted me later that evening and it got super mushy. Like he basically said he wanted to see me more. So, I freaked for nothing, really.
I’m happy everyone is having good dates.August 16, 2015 at 12:09 am #372183kareGuest
Yayyy veritek. I can’t wait to hear what you plan for the next date.
Aww thanks, hfantods!! I agree that 6-7 months is a decent amount of time after a serious relationship. As weird as it sounds, I feel like it’s almost easier to move on from longer relationships than shorter ones where you’re still in that honeymoon stage. I also don’t like when people describe all their exes as crazy, but just one ex would be more of a yellow flag for me. I mean we all have a crazy ex story. I feel like mentioning exes on a first date isn’t ideal though, but I am also one of those people that will be emotionally slutty on dates so I can’t judge. 🙂August 16, 2015 at 5:18 am #372184KateGuest
Finance guys can be like that. And guys in general may try to impress you on a date and come off braggy. 6-7 months is not a red flag, calling an ex crazy is something people shouldn’t do on first dates, but… If you liked him enough and found him attractive I’d say try another date. If he starts telling you horror stories about his last relationship, well. One other thing about finance guys, they want to help you with your own finances and investments, so expect that in your future. Might not be a bad thing.August 16, 2015 at 10:16 pm #372218TheLadyEGuest
Just wanted to say @veritek, SO happy for you!! That sounds awesome!! Keep us updated!! 😀August 17, 2015 at 7:08 am #372227NookieParticipant
Hooray Veritek, that sounds awesome!! I’m glad you met someone that you like!August 17, 2015 at 8:26 am #372232
I’m still having trouble wiping the grin from my face this weekend 🙂 But, I don’t wanna get too excited because he does live 2 hours away 🙁 But man I can’t wait to see him again!August 17, 2015 at 8:48 am #372234Addie PrayParticipant
Now that sounds like a great date, veritek33! Too bad he lives so far away? St. Louis? Kansas City? By the way, have you ever considered a move to CoMo? I would think meeting eligible bachelors and dating would be easier in a college town, but hell, dating is hard everywhere.August 17, 2015 at 8:59 am #372237
@Addie I actually lived in Columbia for a few years after college but then I developed a bridge phobia (I know I’m weird) and moved here to avoid the Missouri River bridge each day. But my latest ex lived in Columbia so I am and was there all the time. A lot of the guys I’ve been on dates with have been from Columbia. So not a bad idea.
Tinder teacher lives in Quincy Il., so just past Hannibal. It’s not a bad drive at all, it’s actually really pretty. But I haven’t even asked him if he WANTS to date a girl that lives 2 hours away. I’m trying really hard not to get ahead of myself here, ya know?August 17, 2015 at 9:17 am #372239Addie PrayParticipant
Oh that would be a pretty drive, with a lot of pretty locations in the middle to meet up at. (<—- I know, worst sentence ever).August 17, 2015 at 9:24 am #372242AleMember
6-7 months is not so much of a red flag. Most long term relationships are over long time before they are officially over. Maybe he is just starting to date after the break up, which sounds fine.August 17, 2015 at 9:37 am #372245
@AP My hometown (Mexico) is almost right in the middle but I’d have to explain to my mother why I’m in town and not visiting her lol
