Clarification

This week someone pointed out the following to me:
1. you announced your divorce
2. you filled out your profile
3. you posted your picture
4. sort of looks like a personals ad, like you're gearing up...

So, for the record: I'm not.
I really DO like meeting new people, whether IRL or here. I enjoy blogging, the banter, the ideas, the support, the occasional mild flirting, the rest. But I'm not advertising, not looking to start dating, not getting married again. Had my shot at it, didn't work out. (Sit down, thanks for playing the game, no soup for you!) Didn't mean for it to look like DWM NS/ND WLTM blah blah blah. I guess I just had a little extra inclination to connect with people, hence the pic and the profile.
Okay, I guess that's clear...

bryan, m'dear, i just left a comment on my blog to you about how sometimes i don't understand all of your lovely and highly involved acronyms.

now is one of those times.

ohhhhh, i get it. it's one of those special codes designed to make me feel stupid. i know that because i have already been informed that the world revolves around me.

no soup for any of y'alls.

(did you visit my mom and sister when you were in so. cal?)

I'm not sure, but from what I remember of reading personals ads (in order to make myself feel better by making fun of other people), it would be something like Divorced White Male, Nonsmoker/NonDruguser Would Like To Meet blah blah blah...

your mom and sister: no
my sister: yes, after she called me to remind me that she lived there...

well, I have to say that never crossed my mind. tho I will admit that I can be a bit slow about things, so maybe that's little consolation.

Yeah the first thing I thought when I saw the picture was Stud Muffin. I was a little interested until I remembered I am a) married
b) not a homosexual
c)I have already lived with Bryan for 3 years and his cleaning/cooking skills leave something to be desired

its unfortunate the everyone believes that just because you introduce yourself your advertising. Why does everything have to be about dating and marriage. Been there done that. Me for one just wants to meet new people and for me my marriage was such a mess...I still need to discover WHO I AM.

I have respect for you just knowing who you are....That is great!!! mmmm maybe someday I will get there too...

i'm sorry for not realizing you were throwing yourself at me by doing all of these things.

i didn't hurt your feelings, did i?

just wanted to add: too bad you forgot your bro being in so cal too. ;-)

btw, no "overreactive" thoughts here...

glad you clarified certain acronyms (have to admit -- need to look up some of yours sometimes).

Hehehe...your picture did seem to be a bit...timely...

BTW...don't ever say things like "not dating" and "never getting married again." It's always when you say stuff like that you get blindsided.

If you *really* want to push women away, then try to come off as desperate for sex, pathetic, sniveling, and begging for female companionship. That's *super* attractive!

women really hate men who act like puppy dogs, don't they... :-)

i still find women mysterious and puzzling at times, but I HAVE at least learned that "we pursue that which recedes from us". and saying that makes it sound like this Clarification post is some kind of elaborate reverse-psychology ploy, which it is not...

is that reverse-reverse psychology?
