Cry Havoc X: Sweet Child of Chaos

Holy heck, my dude, that was not a classy move on her part. You deserve a million times better, and your hair is amazing. Adding my echo to Mr. Tank's wisdom, and I hope that today is a good day :courage:

Legit would have thought I'd be a better prospect for her because I don't have kids and would therefore be more available - she wouldn't have to share me when she does have free time!

 

As a previously single mom who dated men with kids and men without, I'm going to weigh in here. More for future reference than anything to do with this specific scenario. Personally, when I was dating, it wasn't about "sharing" free time, because I didn't consider time I spent with my kids to really be free time. So it was more about schedules being able to line up (since I was definitely against my kids meeting a respective partner until it was agreed upon serious). Depending on your personal schedule, this may or may not have been true in this scenario and may or may not be true in a future scenario.

 

The big tipping point is generally more around perception. If you have children, there is a perception that dating someone who has their own children will generally make them more accepting of yours. Now, that may or may not be true, but it's kind of a barrier regardless. So there is kind of a fine line between coming on too strong about the kid thing and not making yourself seem open enough to the idea (if that makes sense). 

 

FWIW, before I got married, one of my longest relationships was with a guy who didn't have kids and didn't want kids of his own. He was really good at letting me set the pace that he was introduced to my kids, asked about them in our conversations, and - when he finally met them - made sure to make them feel included (we had special dates that they were included in).

She was more concerned with what you thought of her than how you were feeling. She repeated more than once "I hope you don't hate me." She cares more about your perception of her than she does about you.

 

Oh dang, this, this here. This is a thing. And very true...

 

Rurik you are ridiculously handsome aside from being a literal survivor of life, stay true to your course and what you're seeking will totally fall into your path.

Your love for me makes sense now.... Huh. 

 

Where I can't say something that's not already been said about the message you got, I will reiterate that you are young, healthy, strong, charismatic, smart, and have TONS to offer the opposite sex. Nothing forced would ever work out in the long run, so, for better terms, "good ridden's, chika!" 

 

I wish we could go see Aquaman together man...it would be a rad bro date! We could both wear leather jackets, too! But I have a feeling we'll have a lengthy discussion of the movie soon :). Cheers, brother! Keep your wits and head about you and kick ass today.

Rurik I need you to know that I'm now getting AQUAMAN ads on Instagram and I have NEVER ever searched Aquaman ever before EVER and I just don't know how the internet machine works but Momoa is spreading and it's not a terrible thing.

 

That is all...

Challenge Journal:  December 7, 2018.

Dusted myself off and carried on with the week.  Had another date (Social activity ☑), nothing remarkable, and thus the journey continues.

More importantly we're getting closer to Aquaman's release date!  Bit of an aborted excitement today, I found a cam version of the movie but it was utterly terrible and therefore not worth it, and so I'll wait for theater release.  The Momoa hype is real lately!  Jason is on SNL this weekend.  B)Frivolity  and Be Happy dialed up to 11

Pretty late to the party, but I'll echo what everyone else has said, especially Raxie and Tank. Sounds like that lady was more worried about the practical stuff (being with someone that has been through the divorce/kids experience) than being with someone awesome. Let them hook up and re-build a family for their kids, that's not what you set out to do in the first place.

How are you doing? xx

 

The week has definitely mended itself and the hurt feels are mostly passed.  Thank you all for the kind words, much love!

 

I have another prospect or two on the horizon so all is not lost.  MOST IMPORTANTLY I so do not need another person to shop for by Christmas.

 

So holiday singledom has its own certain romantic appeal.  ;)

Yours is a perspective I'm making my peace with, and one I'll have to keep in mind because by far the majority of available women in my age group (even expanded for absurd limits, for that matter) are single mothers and the kiddo baggage is one I'll need to manage in all likelihood.  Definitely making the "fine line between coming on too strong about the kid thing and not making yourself seem open enough to the idea" point extra to heart too!

 

Part of me wonders now if my likely inability to produce offspring coupled with a lack of wish to do so anyways is a bit of a turnoff.  Regardless I'll keep that card closer to my chest until necessary to introduce it to the game.  Thank you for the insight!

Allow me to reuse my earlier JM video to summarize my enthusiasm for that hypothetical scenario...

I thought of you, just before Thanksgiving, when the news here in Tempe had a spot on a venue where people were sampling craft beers and...wait for it....throwing axes!!!!!

And now, catching up on your thread I see the video of Momoa throwing the axe and drinking beer. Sometimes the Universe is just plain weird and perfect. 

 

 

In honor of challenges past, present and future...

When someone at a party last weekend asked when Aquaman came out, I must have answered too quickly.  I was teased for the remainder of the evening...  Don't care!!!

Nothing much to comment on.  It was a Monday.

But I watched Jason Momoa on SNL (Be Happy ☑), so it truly was a #MomoaMonday (Frivolity ☑)!!

I'm widely acknowledged as a Jason Momoa fanboy even among my friends and coworkers.

 

Someone even called him my spirit animal today, which is my own preferred nomenclature for the situation.

I watched the whole SNL episode before work this morning and I'm not even an SNL fan at all.  He made it worth my time though!

In other news early ticket access for Aquaman must have started this week because I checked my local theater for showtimes and could select my seats.

 

So I booked two tickets and got my favorite seating in the theater.  smiling-face-with-heart-shaped-eyes_1f60

I picked myself up, dusted myself off, and continued in true #MomoaMonday fashion:  went and did my workout without a headband so my hair was everywhere, deadlifted 335# for a million reps, and met up with a friend afterward for some ego repair.

Happy Hump Day! We've made it to Wednesday, halfway through the week and more than halfway through this challenge!  In one week and a day, some of us will be taking our seats in theaters across the world for the theatrical debut of Aquaman, and in two weeks we'll be on the leeward slope of the Christmas holiday. 

Keep up however much momentum you've gathered and let's keep steamrolling through the last few weeks of our 2018 goals!  Make the last 3 weeks of the year the plot twist your life has been waiting for.

Like I said... #goals!
