There are 2 kinds of sick....

Well, it's been a few days since I posted and I'm sorry who...I don't know. I doubt anyone's reading this but nevertheless...I was sick with the flu. God that was aweful.

You know there's sick, can't get out of bed, everything hurts, don't care if I ever shower again in my life...and then there's sick, can't go to work, but can make some food and watch movies on the couch and relax, have a nap, etc. Yeah, I was sick, like the first option. Didn't care if I ever left my bed again.

Anyways, I didn't check my dating messages the last 2 days cuz I was sick so I just logged in. 12 messages. 2 from earlier in the week and 10 new guys. It's a bit overwhelming. I mean is it be or are there lots of single guys on the prowl. LOL.

Tonight I'm not replying to any of them. I'm just starting to feel better and I figure, I'm not really the right frame of mind and to make shit up it's worth it or fair to to take more immodium and curl up in my pjs. Dating world will have to wait another day. Uh...just realized that tomorrow is Friday. Better send a message to start a dialog with these guys in case I message back and forth with them tomorrow and get a date lined up for Saturday and Sunday...hmmm...better get messaging hmmm?

2 outta 5 aint bad

Watched the Grammies last night, so I totally forgot about my dating site in box. Never checked it last night before bed. Watched the grammies til the wee hours. It was so good. Lady Gaga and Elton John together was amazing, although they had bizarre make up on and I have no idea what the storyline was. Pink had this awesome Cirque de Soleil thing going with this nearly naked outfit like figure skaters wear. It was amazing!!!

Logged into my dating site this morning before heading to work...sooo exciting. Got 5 messages in my inbox. woohoo. I didn't have time to look at them in detail but I noticed that 2 of them were sent last night and 3 were sent this morning. Who gets up at like 5am to check out 'fresh meat' on dating sites. Desperates? Busy men? I got some time to read through the profiles on my lunch hour and 2 of them look promising. One is Brad, works in Finance. Says he likes my profile pic and if I'm interested I should reply. He's got dark hair, so so looking, taller than me and he's into racquetball, like I am so that's kinda cool. He's 30 though. I like older guys but 5 years. hmmm. I'm keeping an open mind though.

The other one is Steve. Blonde, muscular. Very good looking but seems like he's too into himself, just from the way he's posing for his profile pic. I have messaged them both back, just saying the same thing to both. LOL. Hi. Thanks for the message. Like your picture too. Although with Brad I asked him how long he's been playing racquetball. I would hate to play against him and have him kick my ass if he's too good. Oh...and steve...he's in Manufacturing. What the hell does that mean? He works in a factory? He works for a Mfg'ing company? What is he in? Sales, marketing. Upper Management? Usually when someone is vague it's cuz they're trying to jazz up what they do. If it goes any further I guess I'll find out more.

The other 3 guys were geeking looking and one of them was like in his 40's. disgusto...

Monday night tv looks good, so I'm in my pjs for the night and I'll check my 'inbox' for replies before bed.

What's my style?

Last night I decided to sit down and create my profile for the dating hard to talk about yourself and describe what you are looking for and describe yourself. I gave what I think is an acurate description of me and what my interested are...I said I like spinning classes...I do...I just don't go that much. I try to get the gym, but work or something will always get in the way. I mean I try to keep in shape...oh well.

I'm hoping that it won't take long for me to get some messages in my dating profile. I'm not sure what to expect. In the meantime, I'm keeping myself busy and my mind off of it. This afternoon I went to Starbucks over on Travis Street. Was pretty busy. I hung out and read my new book. It's from the Oprah Book Club, from awhile back. I thought I was looking pretty trendy. LOL.

It's boring though by yourself. I wish I had company. It seems like a good place to go for a date though. You can go, hang out, have coffee, figure out if the guy is a Latte with Cinnamon dude or a hard core Black Coffee guy. Does what you drink say anything about yourself? I dunno. Maybe I'll go back next weekend and figure out what people are ordering and see if it fits their profile of what they look like. Stake out the coffee drinkers.

In the meantime, I'm keeping busy trying to redecorate my bedroom. I've been on the House and Home websites and looked at hot bedroom trends for 2010. I am not sure if I like a lot of the ideas. Very modern and streamlined and I'm really not that type of person. Which makes you think...does your design say alot about yourself? I would think so...I wonder what some guys bedrooms look like. Is it plain white and boring. Just somewhere to sleep, watch TV and bring a chick back to? Or is it Pottery Barn'ed up the wazoo...and is that their style or did they have someone do their ex...or their sister. Or is it copied out of a magazine to a T. I don't want my bedroom to be too girly...I'd like a guy to feel comfortable if he's coming over...but then again, it's my space. My recluse, my relaxation space. I guess I've got to keep looking at designs before I go out and redo it.

well, back to cleaning out the closets and figuring out what my bedroom 'style' is, all the while...waiting for some messages from potential dates...

Frogs in the Pond

Well, here it is Saturday night...alone in Houston...again. I have been so busy with work, that I haven't had a chance to create my Online Dating Profile on the Dating website.

I think I might be procrastinating because I'm afraid that once I hit the 'OK' button, it's out there. All my personal's already out there on this blog, so now that I think about it, what's the difference. OK. No more procrastinating. Tonight I'll create my blog.

I think the most exciting part will be to see if anyone sends me a message or wants to chat with me. It's like gambling I guess. You never know when you'll get lucky. I am sure I'll have to meet a few guys that aren't my type or I'm not interested in after chatting with them, before I meet Mr. Right. Gotta go through a lot of frogs before finding that Prince, as they say.

let's just hope it's a small pond...

Getting Back on the Horse...

Hi. My name is Gina and I am 25. I am new to the Houston area and recently back in the dating scene, and I thought why not blog about the ups and downs of the dating world. Surely someone out there will be going through or has been through this and misery loves company. LOL.

My last relationship was 2 years long and ended when I took a new job at a marketing firm here and my boyfriend didn't want to move with me to the area. The job was too good to pass up and we were fighting so it seemed like the right move.

Now that I'm settled, my friends, who all live back home and are either engaged, married or in serious relationships suggested I try an online dating website to meet people. Safer than creeping around seedy night clubs and meeting people through work. LOL.

In my spare time I enjoy racquetball, taking spinning classes at the local gym, rollerblading in summer and reading. I'm looking for a guy who's out for some fun but not a love 'em and leave 'em type either. He's got to have an athletic build, enjoys going on dates to the movies, etc and preferrably Christian.

And so begins the hunt!
