Congrats, Outdoor Girl! I remember your posts here, and whenever you mentioned your boyfriend in other threads I got a little smile on my face, glad it was going well for you. :)

That's great Outdoor Girl, I'm happy for you!  I started dating my DH when I was almost 41 and we got married when I was 46 (one and a half years ago).  I had pretty much given up on finding anybody that was compatible for me for the long run, so I thought I would be in the spinsters club for life (not that there's anything wrong with that).  Anyway, best wishes to you and your guy!

I've put my dating life on hold until I'm sure about a potential change coming up at work that will significantly affect my schedule.  I'm so busy anyway I'm not sure when I'd be able to go out on dates!

Bumping to say...

Today is the 6 month anniversary of our first date.  We've had to postpone celebrating for logistical reasons but plan on a nice dinner out on the Labour Day weekend.

We still have yet to have any sort of a fight.  Barely even any mild disagreements.  We both have tempers so it's weird that there have been no issues that way.  And a bit of a relief.  Nice, calm, rational conversation beats yelling any day.  Even for someone who *likes* to yell sometimes.  (That would be me.)

Still talking long term but he has to get divorced before anything can happen, though there are some preliminary things we can do.  His ex is dragging her feet and has unrealistic expectations of what she should receive in support and in the division of assets so that's stressing him out but not stressing our relationship.  But she's apparently talking about moving back to her hometown so that may hurry the process along a little so she can get everything finalized before she goes.

I've been helping him help out his parents.  They have a wood burning furnace and so have to get the wood in and under cover so it's good and dry before winter.  We did most of it the first weekend in August.  I think his parents will be really mad at him if we ever break up.   ;D

I've also un-spinstered lately!  We've been dating two and a half months...and I could not have special ordered someone more perfect for me.

Awesome.

Comes when you least expect it, doesn't it?  Though I wish it could have come around 10 to 20 years earlier...  :)

I had actually stopped trying to date when a mutual friend started inviting him out to our big group outings.  He wasn't initially looking to date either but we really hit it off and both decided we didn't want to be single anymore.  I did everything short of hiring a skywriter to make sure he got the message that I was interested in him  ;)
