    Hello everyone!

    To the new people, hi I'm Gordy from the UK, pleased to meet you!

    Hope you're well and good.

    I'm single again, now where did that queue go? :)

    My ex is a great woman, but I guess we just didn't have enough in common for the relationship to become stronger. It was like a short (6 months) intense thing that was fantastic while it lasted but sometimes things just don't work out. No one's to blame, we're still good friends and I wish her well in the future.

    So what's been happening here? Anyone been married off in my absence?

    Take Care

    I agree that being on line for a long time cannot be good for a relationship regardless of how or where one met their partner. The time spent on line is time that is NOT spent with one's mate, children, friends, etc. Time goes by quickly when one is on line and before you know it, you've been on for several hours.

    There was a study done about 3 yrs ago regarding online marriages/relationships, study said, "Average online relationships/marriages only last for 6 mos." I personally know of three that are still married and 2 divorced less than six months.

    I've dated a gentleman online once; it didn't last because he was still online all hours of the night. Whenever I signed online I would see him online all hours of the night, when questioned him about it he got upset. I've decided to end the online relationship and he got extremely upset with me.

    Do you guys think online relationships/marriages don't work out sometimes due to the fact that one person is constantly online?

    I think that's exactly the reason. Been there and done that. Guy I saw for a year did that. Remained a paying member of several sites while he whispering sweet nothings to me. Gets very old. And I think it does a relationship in.

    Thanks all.

    Hey, I recognise that smiley lass in the yellow shirt! You've got a dog???? What did the cats have to say about that? :)))

    I love dogs but not allowed to have one where I live. My ex has the cutest little Jack Russell cross. Just a little black and brown mental ball of energy it is but well cute too :)

    To be honest I think I need to be realistic about life now. I need to find someone with no kids or with kids who have left home as I'm not cut out for the fatherhood thing, had no experience of it at all. That was just one problem. Another problem was I get very jealous if there's other males on the scene like close male friends or ex's. A woman is allowed male friends don't get me wrong but I do get insecure about it. They're two things that I can work on... everything else was okay, we were just too different at the end of the day I think.

    Take Care All

    Hello from the other end of the UK! I think I joined just after your departure but I remember seeing the tail end of some of your posts.

    Anyway, welcome back .... always nice to see a British fella that likes to join in on these forums.

    Great attitude about your ex ... sorry it didn't work out, but to see someone staying positive restores my faith in humankind a bit ... a refreshing change from all us moaners on here, lol,

    Hey Gordy! Welcome back! I haven't really kept up with what's happened with who, but most of the regulars have gone and been back themselves.

    Sorry to hear things didn't work out with the young lady, but at least you're on good terms with her.

    Hi Gordy, sorry to hear things didn't work out. You will find most of the "regulars" have left...Kew, Bubs, Theo etc. all for different reasons, but things have gotten pretty boring around here on the forums etc. Welcome back!
