I feel like there's a stigma attached to me for being divorced, even though that's probably silly as so many people it makes you feel better..everyone I know with divorce and/or children to their name are either in happy relationships, engaged, or re-married.
I don't have any kids or even any communication with my ex.

I'm attractive, I have a good job, and honestly what happened sucked, but I'm not bitter or carrying around huge baggage.Remember when I said my blog would become a hodge podge of this so called life? I decided this past June I would really put forth some effort into dating. Ya know who is at churches and supermarkets in the Chicago south suburbs, married fellas and families. I want to find someone I can have a good time with and we can see where it goes from there. My ex-boyfriend and I parted ways on terrible terms and then good terms and remained friends. I am looking for someone who shares the same values; someone who is honest, kind, hardworking, and funny. They've all given me a lot to think and talk about for sure.
So, for real, dating as an adult in a complete and utter shit show. Everyone who is married is all like, "you'll meet someone when you're not looking," "you have to be happy alone first," "go to the supermarket, go to church." Y'all are full of bananas. If I'm not going to look for someone, is he just going to appear on my doorstep? Online dating is the equivalent of getting junk mail. There's nothing wrong with you wanting a one night stand, but I'm looking for something real. Ok I use to be all like let's do drinks or have coffee..honestly, if we don't suddenly fizzle out, I'm open to lunch, appetizers, or dinner. Anywho, I decided the last two weeks of June that it was time to dive head first and try, really try.
Most of you have been married for ever or have been with your significant other before you had any type of real responsibilities, so shutty. Ya know how many single 40ish year old men work in a Pre-K-2nd grade building? Groceries and house errands during much of my free time. So, here I am 40 with a four year old dictator, living in...well, a more populated version of Stars Hollow sans Luke and even Kirk. Blah blah blah Dating at 40 stinks..7th grade classroom bad. Honestly, it seems to be the only way to meet people. I don't like to chat on here forever, but there will be some messaging to ensure that our first meet goes somewhat ok :) I feel like my profile is decent. I would chat with anyone I found remotely interesting and arrange a meet. * Guy who had the most obnoxious laugh that EVERYONE in the restaurant stared at us. * Guy who has been single for 14 years and knows everything about women and dating. Which is saying something because girl likes to talk!
Let's see, I have a four and half year old son who I absolutely adore...being said, he is a tyrannical dictator. I would do just about anything to help a friend, a family member, or a co-worker. I probably would be described as loud once you get to know me. I love cooking for the people I love and have been told I am a good cook.
Who knew that writing about yourself would be such a difficult task? I try my hardest to treat others as I would like to be treated. Most people say I have a sense of humor similar to a guys. I enjoy being outside and going out, but I also love to be domestic.
Get the first meet out of the way, like tearing off a bandaid. Between June 24th and the time school had started August 21st, I had gone out on 15 dates. Each one resulted in being asked out on a second date. Also, he's not a smoker, but he smoked about 8 cigarettes throughout the evening on a patio.
There's no point in messaging or texting over and over..a phone call isn't enough. He called my four times between 11PM and 9AM and sent four texts. * Guy who was so over the top into dating, he wanted to be exclusive by date 2.
