One Success, One Failure, and One We'll See

Sounds like a Hugh Grant movie, doesn't it? For anyone who is interested, I just wanted to update a little about what's been going as far as previous posts.

One Success
It appears that AdultFriendFinder has approved my second posting (link available in "The Dead Anti-Spammer's Society" below) regarding how to combat spammers here. I wish I could say that I fought the man, wore him down, and emerged victorious on the field of battle. Sadly, it appears that the delay in the first posting was due to some technical glitch in the system, as this one was approved fairly quickly. At this time, I'm just glad to have gotten my 30 points! lol

One Failure
Okay, quitting smoking SUCKS! Not going well at all, I'm afraid. For over 2 weeks, i was able to make it through the day without even bringing my cigarettes with me to work. There wasn't even a moment of collapse, really. I just found myself stashing them in my pocket on my way out the door again. Grrrrr! Fear not, I plan to try again!

One We'll See
I just went on my first date with a girl who does not have The Gift that Keeps on Giving. We met through a mutual friend about 3 weeks ago (well, okay, my friend pushed me kicking and screaming into a kind of a set-up; he does not know I have H). We seemed to hit it off, and I realized how long it has been since I've been in the "regular" dating crowd. For the past 4 years, every "date" I've had has been with someone from an H site, and there always seemed to be the understanding that we were going to have sex, then see what happened from there. Obviously, not much! When she left the bar, my friend had to come and get me to remind that I should maybe walk her to her car and get her number. Well, that panned out, and we had a nice time at dinner tonight. Though, did a first date always cost $150? lmao

Anyway, we're not even close to discussing sex yet, so I've yet to have "the talk" with her. Ergo...we'll see...

success - patience is a virtue. Not that you had much of a choice, but you could've been bitching with the man, being the squeeky wheel that gets the grease. You're still victorious. The info is out there.

failure - if at first you don't succeed, try, try again. If you're quitting, wouldn't it make more sense to not buy the cigaretts in the first place? Or are you trying to narrow down the places you allow yourself to smoke until there aren't any left?

we'll see - $150 eh? WOW! never had a first date cost that much. Usually save those for later , more special dates and occasions. Its good that your friend was there to remind you of what to do on dates. Chivalry should never die. Won't guarantee you get laid, but will count as fore-foreplay when the time comes. LOL. Its smart to start with a meet and greet situation where you know you WON'T be having sex. She may not be worth the sweat-equity...gotta have time to find that out babe.

Thanks, Cookie! In that case, I take full credit for defeating the evil AdultFriendFinder Empire! lol As for the cigs, yeah. I tried cold turkey, and made it exactly 14 hours. I'm trying to reduce the number of places where I feel like I should have one instead of where I need one. Work seeemd a logical place to start. And, the dinner date. We went to a restaurant near my old courthouse, where we used to stop in for a drink or 9. Apparently, there's been so much growth there that they've jacked up the prices. Doh! Oh well, it was a good steak, and I was impressed to eat with a girl who wasn't afraid to order the pork chop on a first date!
