Back to where I started....
My first post here was about a 'woman' whom I thought was ignoring me, or avoiding me, and I just wanted her to let me know if she wasn't interested anymore.
Here is my update and it ties into my more recent posts....
For those that know their AdultFriendFinder, you will be familiar with the 'who's online now' link which quickly lists the people online that (somewhat) match your cupid settings. It is a handy way to see if there are any new faces in your area as well as see who might be around on one of your IM programs, specifically the big Y one where 90% of my contacts keep themselves in constant invisible mode (I'll rant about that another day - lol).
The bad thing about the 'who's online now' link is that it is horribly unreliable. I can only assume that in order to beef up the numbers, AdultFriendFinder keeps people showing as 'online' long after they are gone. Case in point is a friend from here that called me from her cell phone one afternoon, miles from her house, yet she was 'online' according to AdultFriendFinder, I laughed and told her about it, she said she hadn't been online for at least a couple hours.
Where am I going with all this anyways? Well the woman I initially wrote about showed as 'online' on AdultFriendFinder all day and evening yesterday...... and me being the pessimistic person I can be at times assumed she was and just didn't want to talk to me.....
So, keyboard in hand I wrote her a letter asking her if she was still interested and if not to please let me know and all would be fine (ok, it was longer than that as you can guess but I will spare you the entire thing).
low and behold tonight she sent me a couple messages via the Y thing (I was away at the time). Indicating she got my message and was still interested, she said she had not been on AdultFriendFinder, just busy with things (her kids being involved in lots of things, etc).
hmmmmmm kids? KIDS? She told me before that she did have two, but one was already in college hours away. Her other is supposed to be 17, a fairly self-sufficient age for kids in my opinon. I replied to her message saying thanks and I would talk to her soon.....
Soooooooooooooooooooo..... the cynical part of me is now thinking this 'she' is a 'he' playing a game (her message to me also mentioned how sexy she thought I was). The optimistic part of me is slapping around the cynical part of my brain telling me I am reading too much into a simple message.
The result is that I am just writing her off mentally, but hopeful that I am wrong and she will eventually want to chat more and see where things lead (oh, and that 'she' is indeed a 'she').
I'm not nuts, really...... I mean it!!
