Last night, just because one isn't a blogger...

I don't necessarily eliminate the possibility of meeting someone that isn't necessarily a blogger altogether.

I met a very humbling, sincere, funny, handsome cowboy last night who had just finalized his divorce officially this week after a long enduring process that had taken years to finalize. We met at a restaurant off of Congress Avenue that had excellent food and I so enjoyed his company, a fascinating man.

This man was persistent and impressive in his emails to me; I wasn't let down at all when I met him in person either. I hadn't planned to meet him after work that morning when I had finally called him so I was in my very comfy, casual clothes that were conducive to digging in files for support documents rather than what I would have chosen to meet someone for a first impression in; however, he certainly set me at ease in that aspect.

Just curious though....

How many folks hold to a stone that someone they meet up with be a blogger too???

How many folks take spontaneous chances???

How do you choose who would you meet, or not meet???

    Whether the person is a blogger or not, it doesn't matter to me. I'll give anyone a fighting chance if our personalities click well.

    I don't consider anything as written in stone. How you perceive a person in the blogs can be a gray area at best. I will not judge a person completely by what they blog about, and I wouldn't want them to judge me based on that same criteria.

    I've all but gave up sending emails and winks. Because I usually will not get a response. So if there is a woman out there who thinks I'm interesting enough based on my profile and blog that gets her interest, she'll step up to the plate and make an initial contact herself.

    I look for who's different amongst the masses. Someone more unique than the rest of the pack. I'm willing to forego other 'possible' dates that I could've found by myself, for the ones that have a genuine interest.
Genuine interest is certainly the key....but, I agree... it is usually someone that will be something very different from the "rest of the pack" that will definately catch my eye!

    I'm not actively searching to meet anyone; I mean, I don't do the cupid things, or send out megabytes of emails to the "matches" that show up... I tend to be more comfortable getting to know someone here in the blogs first. I've met a couple already because we became acquainted in the blogs, but if a non-blogger happened to catch my attention I wouldn't pass up an opportunity to meet her.
You know something... I don't do all those other things either. If I were truly out there looking, I would probably do all of those things as well. I like the comfort of getting to know folks as well, which I guess I have been so drawn to the bloggers; however, many of those I have met weren't bloggers to the extent that I am...

and I have enjoyed their company as well.

Like you, I try not to miss a golden opportunity for those who are genuinely interested...

    I hadn't specifically set out to hook up with a blogger, but it just turned out that way. He is absolutely wonderful but the distance is a big barrier. Next week we are meeting half-way again and spending 4 days together.
Yes, distances, longhairednikki...

can be a huge factor and a barrier...

those who have followed my blog last year followed about two instances of trying to make distant relationships work for me.

If you can be successful with it, then a blessing to you both. It is hard to figure the what next part. Does he move where you are at and give up his friends or you move to where he's at and give up your friends????

The older one gets, the less likely one is willing to move the distance, unless they are used to the moving experiences...

Best wishes for a successful ld romance.... May it be everything you would want it to be... and so much more!!

    Hey Rose! Its been a long time.

    I can't imagine why anyone would insist that someone else be a blogger to consider meeting them. Granted you might be able to get to know a blogger without even showing interest but the criteria really should be that you know enough to risk the meeting. This can be done via e-mail, over the phone, letters via US mail, etc.

    I think that covers all three questions. So, how have you been?
I have been good,
a not so average joe!!

How have you been doing??? Being erotic???

Yes, I guess that is why I have been even more drawn to the bloggers because of the ability to see a lot about them....however, because of my writing skills, I am also drawn to lots of writing and questions.

It isn't very often that I am so spontaneous to meet someone at the first write.....

a gal has to be careful these days, you know.....

    I haven't met a blogger yet but tend towards meeting men who have the same home situation I do. Men that have a spouse that have an illness which allows no sexual contact yet as just as committed as I am to take the best care we can of them but satisfy our needs too.
Hmmm... I don't think that all the guys that I have met have had blogs, but generally the ones I have been head over heels about were also bloggers. Perhaps, that is like what you said though.... sharing a common interest....
