Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus??

I don't think I'll ever get to a point where I would understand men in general!! They're definitely a species on their own!! hehehe!!

I'm clearly aware that men are physical beings and women, on the other hand, are emotional beings. But must men be so obvious with regards to this fact?? Now, don't get me wrong. Every woman will agree with me when I say that getting attention from a member of the opposite sex is good for the ego and self esteem. But it depends on how she's approached isn't it.

Being catapulted back into the dating scene about 6 years ago had me rethink my whole dating experience. Everything had changed drastically. What I realised very quickly was that once guys found out you were a divorcee they automatically assumed bedding you after the first date would be on the cards!! Were they in for a rude awakening!! LOL!! Where were the times when a guy would be too shy to ask for your telephone number?? Nowadays you would have a dude sauntering over to you saying "Hey babe, you're hot!! How about you and I getting it on." HUH??? Did I miss something here???

A good friend once suggested I play the 'dumb blonde.' ME?? A definite no-no, me not the type to feign having no brains upstairs. Neither am I one to bat my eyelashes, drop my books, etc, etc. I'm always asking questions and the only way to keep me interested would be by stimulating my brain, please note that I did say my brain!! I'm quite forthright as to my views & opinions as I expect the next person to do the same. But I can sometimes get myself into hot water. Needless to say, I'm learning to bite my tongue, but it's taking a lot of effort to do so!!

Maybe I'm just being too prudish but I'm the type of gal who wants to be swept off her feet man!! The adrenalin rush of the chase is just too thrilling to skip!! Don't talk about the flowers, chocolates, knick knacks, etc, etc. But then again we live in an era where everything is so fast paced guys don't do that any longer. What with Internet dating taking place as well, you'll find that the global village has diminished. Inter-racial marriages taking place have become a norm.

Personally, I was quite weary about the whole Internet dating experience. After hearing a friend's episode I decided to try it out, just for the fun of it. Little did I realise how it would change my life completely. The experience opened a whole new world of colors, vibrant and beautiful!! Oh, I had my share of weirdos & wackos but the friendships that I have forged certainly make up for that!!

Now, there's one contact that has really interested me from the word go. His intellect is out of this world and I'm inclined to think that he has a Google search facility somewhere in the recesses of his brain, LOL!! The only thing is, I'm always shooting off my mouth at the most inopportune times!! Just when I think I've managed to get him to open up a little bit, I'd say something to make him go into hiding again, LOL!! Playing a dumb blonde is sounding a bit too tempting for my liking!! Men, you can't live with them and you can't live without them!!

Me go now to find a secluded spot.

Me go lick my wounds.

Me go find some way to keep my big mouth shut!!

Well, me go try ok!!

Good going love... and feel free to express your views and opinions... afterall, what would life be like without never living your authentic self!

Keep it up! I'm loving it!
