My friends all seem to have hit on lucky with their partners it's making me feel lonely!

Are there any nice men left? I never seem to meet any

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Wed 12-Dec-12 14:54:46

a man in the house even .... hmm

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Wed 12-Dec-12 14:54:25

I have decided to become a Nun can I join please? My dc do not want '8a man in the house*, so that's that! grin

Ha ha ha that's it. I have decided. There is only one thing for it. Must start a single parent commune for monks and nuns. Anyone game?!!

I'm not too sure if I believe all that cosmic ordering stuff, seems a tad bit out there for me. But then I've always found it hard to have faith in something I can't see.

Hey oscarthegrouch how've you been getting on?

My xp had given birth to a baby girl 2 weeks ago, I couldn't be happier!!
And I have even been able to see her daily since her birth, and also support both DD and xp during these early stages smile

Looking I have spent all week reminding myself to be positive, and believing that it will happen.

Still nothing, does it take a while?

on phone - to school - fucking furious - shouting at my son for not going to their fucking counselling

Eejit grin .... great word! And yes, I think that may have been a little window of opportunity opening for you there. Backtrack .... FAST!!

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Wed 05-Dec-12 19:02:27

grin

No something to do with diesel, he has 2 cars though, I could use one, my insurance just went us ...grin he kinda fits the bill, taller than me, dark hair, nice guy but I have known him since I was 10, I seen him viewing me on a dating website, I think we both cringed, nothing was said, he logged off and so did I. blush

My parents think I am nuts, I was at hospital with DS yesterday, they took us in as my driving in ice skills are the best, I had my picture of my flooring with me, explained what I was doing, they just said 'hmm yes very good' (whilst laughing @ me - I even gave Noel Edmond's a mention they love Deal or No Deal and I read about him doing this years ago) hmm

Oh rubbish my Dad actually said 'would you like me to get it?' I said 'no I am cosmically ordering it' Oh wrong answer... that was my flooring, I need to backtrack.....What an eejit, the answer was yes thank you pay you back soon-ish....

Lookingatclouds Wed 05-Dec-12 09:46:26

But seeing him twice? The universe is trying to get your attention!! What does he do for a living? Maybe he's fits carpets and flooring grin.

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Mon 03-Dec-12 19:36:59

I now have pictures on my fridge (always in the fridge for something) no men yet, just flooring. grin

Oh I seen a man last night, some people last year tried to 'get us together' hmm I was mortified anyway ignored him from then on and was slipping about the park with my dog last night and who was there 'the man' blush

I stuttered a 'oh hi hello' then ran/slipped on ice lots away..... I have not been ordering a man, flooring first Mr Cosmic order person, get it right please. Flooring then man, possibly.

Lookingatclouds Sun 02-Dec-12 21:49:47

That is actually a great reaction AmIthattinselly. Tears are really good - they were clearing away stuff you were holding onto that needed to go. I wept buckets when I did mine!! What is reallly good is that you smiled as you wrote what you wanted - you were really starting to feel it. Well done!!

That's great news niceup. Keep us posted on that one, and even if it isn't him, there will be a reason for him popping up.

Any other progress reports? Amithatscary and Mama??

Keep going NotW .... try cutting out a picture of what you'd like and putting it somewhere that you can see it. I furnished my whole house like this. Either by putting images up or writing a little note to the universe. Do you know definitely what it is you want? Oh and just as my girls were telling me to go on Take Me Out hmm I needed a boyfriend, my man appeared! Your kids are onto something!! grin

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Sun 02-Dec-12 11:16:56

Maybe I need paper for my flooring? I was just visualizing nice floors, not here yet.....my room did get changed round though, I like it better now...my back is sore-ish though.

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Sun 02-Dec-12 11:15:16

grin

sorry my fingers are still pissed

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Sun 02-Dec-12 11:14:32

2 A4 sides confused

Is this one man? [frgin]

niceupthedance Sun 02-Dec-12 08:41:47

Have been lurking on this thread as I too would like to meet a nice man, after 4 years happily single.

I placed a cosmic order a couple of weeks ago - and I think something is happening! Seriously, someone who (on paper) sounds like my ideal man has asked me on a date. Only problem is that he lives 100 miles away. But can't have everything.

So yes, get ordering!

AmIthatTinselly Sat 01-Dec-12 23:24:55

Lookin Not sure if I got the desired effect. I did what you said and was somewhat shocked to realise that the tears were streaming down my cheeks when I was visualising.

I filled two sides of A4 and smiled as I wrote each one down.

Now I just have to wait and see what happens

mama2moo Sat 01-Dec-12 18:43:31

Thanks! I need all the help I can get in the town I live in!

AmIthatScary Sat 01-Dec-12 18:07:58

Good luck mama

I'm watching Strictly, then going to try the visualisation

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Sat 01-Dec-12 17:30:31

Good luck with that, I'm staying home to visualise my flooring, I'm hoping to be sleeping by 9.00pm ish !! I think my dc have read this, they want me, to date a man..bring him home and meet them. hmmshock Blasted dc have no idea.

mama2moo Sat 01-Dec-12 17:22:24

Im going out tonight to try to find a nice man - Wish me luck!!

AmIthatScary Sat 01-Dec-12 00:19:25

Well, when I was shopping tonight, there were some reduced candles, so I bought the Zen relaxation one. DD is staying at my sisters tomorrow, so I am going to try and do the visualisation thing and see what happens. If nothing else, it might make me feel happy and optimistic

NotWankinginaWinterWonderland Fri 30-Nov-12 13:25:01

That's my line. Where would I put a man?

Lookingatclouds Fri 30-Nov-12 08:37:38

I'm sory for your loss Glutton sad. I think when the time is right and you are ready then it will all fall into place. That was my experience anyway. I had two years on my own. So be warned NotW grin because the weekend after I had said to a friend "do you know what, I am really happy on my own - I love my life and all the things I do and I don't know when I'd even fit a relationship in" was when I met my bf.

Snapespeare Wed 28-Nov-12 20:56:13

You all sound lovely and we would welcome you on the 'official' hmm dating thread. We're all very lovely (apart from the occasional spat) full of cynicism good advice and very welcoming. smile

As to good men? I'm sure they exist, I'm sure they've been burned and are recovering and thinking about new relationships. I refuse to believe they are all happily married and/or gay. grin but I sometimes suspect they are wary of women with DCs (which negates their niceness) we 're nice! There must be male equivalents! smile
