140. The Captain returns

Online dating has been tiresome and dull.  Endless text messaging with uninteresting men who struggle to keep up a conversation, wanting to get right to a fuck without so much as a "how do you do". My swingers site has been uninspiring, so I downloaded Tinder again *sigh* and immediately became addicted to swiping left like…Read more 140. The Captain returns

139. The Fisherman (52)

After our brunch date, The Fisherman kept in regular contact, telling me he "just had to kiss me again". I was less excited but keen to see if he lived up to his reviews. Two nights later he arrived as scheduled on my doorstep with a bottle of good red wine in his hand, and gave…Read more 139. The Fisherman (52)

138. Conversations with chuckleheads

So here we go again.  I decided to sign up to the swingers site I had used to meet The Captain, and after a thorough and fruitless search for both him and The Toolman, I created my profile. I have a suspicion that The Captain already had someone else lined up when we split, or…Read more 138. Conversations with chuckleheads

137. Nobody’s soulmate

So I’ve been enjoying my time alone, in no rush to resume the rollercoaster ride of modern dating, and I’ve had a lot of time to think. What if there is nobody for me?  Well, surprisingly that thought made me feel better.  I’ve spent half my life, since I started to date, alone. And I am…Read more 137. Nobody’s soulmate

136. Intrusive thoughts

Each morning I wake at about 4:30am, get up to pee, then shuffle back to my still-warm sheets hoping to fall back to sleep instantly.  My brain has other ideas.  Scores of ideas, in fact. Ideas about work, which has been keeping me successfully distracted for the last month, ideas about things I should be…Read more 136. Intrusive thoughts

133. An email from…..?

I was waiting for a train and flicked through my phone to pass the time. Scanning my emails, I saw a message from a person I didn’t know. Gulp. Could it be Mrs DWHNA/Toolman?  My heart raced as I touched the screen, peering at the message sideways, looking for confirmation wanting to be both wrong and…Read more 133. An email from…..?

131. “Toolman has commented on your post.”

Following The Toolman’s recent comments on my last post, I’ve taken some time to think about what I want to say. I was sitting at work when the notification came up on my phone.  I started to read and thought, 'what the fuck?' It has been around nine months since The Toolman told me “I…Read more 131. “Toolman has commented on your post.”

129. The Captain (52)

The Captain’s profile on the swinger’s site was much like mine.  He seemed to be looking for the same thing as me but I hadn’t paid him any attention, based on his age. I saw he had looked at me a few times and I had acknowledged his “likes” but I was busy responding to…Read more 129. The Captain (52)

128. The Mauritian (part 2)

The Mauritian and I had made tentative plans to catch up over the weekend following our first, quite successful, date. Tentative as in; “Are you free next Saturday?” “Yes.” “We should catch up.  Lets talk during the week.” Translation: “I think you are a nice person and quite fuck-worthy” “Thanks, me too.” “Well if I…Read more 128. The Mauritian (part 2)

127. Superman (47)

He was one of the first guys who messaged me on the Swingers Site. We talked easily and I found myself smiling whenever we chatting on text. He was a separated father of four grown kids who lived about thirty minutes away.  We discovered many things about each other and I was enjoying an adult conversation…Read more 127. Superman (47)
