Dating Stories



I want so badly to just open up and tell you my dating horrors of the last three years, but two of the men I do not want to hurt anyone.  A few of the men I have dated have become great friends.  I just blocked a man who didn't even know me but decided it was a good idea to tell me that I have nice boobs.  I want to scream at the insanity but I know I am different.  I always try to see the best in anyone I meet.    

Let us go back to where it all started.  My husband passed away on 10/7/2020.  I was a hot mess and completely out of control.  I was living with my daughter and she was understandably upset that I was talking to my old high school boyfriend Michael Prater.  My daughter and I got into a fight so I moved in with Michael for a few days in his camper before coming to my senses and moving in with my sister.  

Then I came across Facebook dating and I ran into Jason Denton.  He was a real piece of work.  From bed bugs to roaches the guy had them.  He was homeless with three children in high school.  My daughter needed to sell her house and he offered to buy it so we all moved in together.  BIG...HUGE..MISTAKE  He brought so much emotional baggage, that it all blew up one evening.  I told him to leave and so he did.  The last time I saw him was in December 2020.  

After Jason, I went back to Facebook dating.  I was searching for someone like my late husband but I have found nothing but trouble.  

(I am going to stop here and write about a few of them each day) 

David has been gone for three years.  I have yet to find a man that can even compare to all his good qualities.  He was a wonderful grandfather and he really loved me.  During the 22 years that we knew each other, we had problems but the last year of our marriage was amazing.  Yes, it was during the pandemic too.  

So, now have three years of dating experience, and starting today I will share every last story.  I am currently single.  I just broke up with Bob Nutt.  It was probably the worst experience of my life. His mood swings were insane and he had kinks that were horrifying.  I pray I never see him again.

We have to stop meeting like this....

Tonight I talked to myself.  I said,” self, why do you feel the way you do?”  Then I said,” self, we have to stop meeting like this because it's one o'clock in the morning”!  I laughed because regardless of the predicament I find myself in, sometimes I don't understand why I do the things I do. Have you ever had a random thought and wondered, “why did I think about that?.  I try to ignore my random thoughts and feelings, but sometimes they just come out when I least expect it. Example 1 ~ When I forget to take my medication, I feel everything.  The depression, sadness, and pain flood in, and all I can do is cry myself to sleep. Example 2 ~ I was watching season three of Anne with an E tonight, and it hit me.  I was crying and feeling very sad.  I should be happy because it was a beautiful ending. However, my mind was thinking about how they loved each other in their youth and found each other again. Right now, in my life, love songs and anything sappy makes me cry.

Beauty in the chaos

Early voting started Friday, so I went to town and voted in the States Primary.  It was a peaceful drive, and then Friday night, we watched the movie 2012. There are so many theories and conspiracies floating around online that the movie made me think about all of them. My thoughts quickly turn to religion and how none of us know when our lives will end. Humanity has gotten it wrong, so many times, and religious leaders continue to attempt to guess, but even the Bible says no one knows. One thing that I know for sure is the earth is a breathtaking place, and I continue to find small glimpses of its beauty amidst the chaos.  Just yesterday, we went to Fall Creek Falls State Park, and I took a dip in the cold water. Families and children were everywhere, laughing and playing.  You would never think that the USA is in an uproar. I saw no signs of social distancing or a pandemic.  I didn't see any mask.  Men were walking their dogs, and the beautiful smells of wood burning flo
