    Hey I hope you make it back to the board. I am waiting to hear the continuing saga of dating the director while bowling with him.

    I've been wondering about Ailurophile, too. She has had some kind of health concern, and I think she had a doctor's appointment last week.

    Hey guys, thanks for thinking of me Guard, I gotta laugh at your tactics - of course I'm going to respond after that!!

    Things with the director have gotten to a comfortable place. Of course I could elaborate with a soap opera-esque retelling of the last few weeks, but the bottom line is that I am no longer worried about it. Unfortunately, I picked up a different admirer along the way and now my concerns have moved to how to thwart his unwelcome advances! ha ha It's all good though. Throughout this journey I have learned that I need to be more assertive about things - it's better for everybody that way.

    Guard, thanks for setting up the Singles board. I might start a thread on there. I've been navigating through the excitement and anxiety of having a new crush and it's been throwing me for a loop. My brother and I have recently reconnected and he's been enjoying dissecting the latest developments with me. And to be clear, the crush is most certainly NOT the director, or anyone associated with bowling

    I hope all is well with everybody. I have been so totally swamped at work that I haven't been able to read the board, but I do care about my friends here very much!
    cjh1203 replied to ailurophile79's response:
    Glad you finally turned up, Ailurophile -- we've been waiting a long time!

    How is your health? You were worried about something before the old board disappeared. Did you get a good report?
    Spankyrae replied to ailurophile79's response:
    She's baaaack!

    I thought the Singles board is a good idea too... I just don't want to stop posting here! Or am I even single?
    wwilson89 replied to Spankyrae's response:
    Spanky, you're not single...well, hmm, unless you look at it from the Christian point of view and if you're not married, you're single sooooo should I start posting there too? Oy!
    Spankyrae replied to wwilson89's response:
    Or from a census point of view, lol. I just don't wanna give up this board! I feel it's practical too since I take my relationships seriously & haven't had much experience in that department.

    "Oy!" It's so weird & funny when you read someone else "speak" like you do, lol.
    ailurophile79 replied to cjh1203's response:
    Thanks CJH. I have a condition I'm dealing with but I don't think the grim reaper's comin any time soon Just need to be monitored regularly and I'll kick this thing. In the grand scheme of things, it's definitely not a big deal. I just need to take care of myself.

    It's nice to be missed

    Have a great weekend!

    My goodness woman. You must have one helluva smile or great personality. You're constantly having to hide from guys,
    ailurophile79 replied to Contemplating19's response:
    It seems that way, huh? Actually, this is something I've never had to deal with before in my life. Might be something about the male to female ratio at bowling
    Contemplating19 replied to ailurophile79's response:
    Oh yeah... I try to tell the ladies I work with all the time that if it's more men than women around. They can just throw in the towel, we act like that's the ONLY woman left on the planet.

    I'm VERY guilty about that myself.

    Not sure why... I need to check into that. Maybe it's an ego thing, we gotta see who can get her first. I dunno...
