Grrrrrrrrowl...

... said the Cougar.

Snort... I can't even write that without laughing. That is so not me and when/if any of you ever meet me in person, you will know I'm telling the truth!

Now, that being said, Sherri, your son (who's to-die-for good-looking) does indeed sound perfect for me (well, aside from the 20-year age difference). I really like liberal-minded, creative, traveling types and I have no problem with following (you did mean that as in, 'following him around the world', right?). However, no matter how wonderful his parents are (and I know for certain you are wonderful!) I'm not sure I'd feel so great about my boyfriend's mother being my age. I think that might be the definition of 'ooky'. Even worse (ookier still, if you will), it'd be weird that I think his dad's even hotter than he is. Damn. I think that might just be the definition of 'old'. But thanks for trying, my friend (and, as always, if you ever get tired of Big Al, you know you can point that Harley straight toward Pigsknuckle!).

And Chris? You're right. I am single because I choose to be... sort of. If I wanted, I could easily be in a relationship just to be in a relationship. If I just wanted sex or some companionship, I'd be golden. But I think I deserve better than that. I deserve to be in a relationship with someone whose personal values are in line with mine... someone who's at a similar point in life and moving in the same direction as I am... someone who can and wants to be a positive influence in my daughter's life... who will be the sort of man who says what he means and does what he says... who makes me feel all tingly inside and who will, eventually, love me beyond all reason. Someone who totally gets the essence that is Diane (OK, that still makes me laugh). That's what I deserve. That's what we all deserve. And, as sweet as he is, I really don't think I'm going to get all that from a 24-year-old, who's just starting out on this journey. So I'll keep looking. But I try hard not to close myself off from new people and new experiences, so coffee with The Boy? Coffee I'll do!

XOXO

Love the new COLOR picture! Sitting in a coffee shop with someone yummy is always fun ;)

Stu Pidasso said...

I like the color picture too. It gives one more input to imagine what kind of person you would be if y'all were chatting over a cold beverage.

And dating a friends kid....definately ooky!

"Essence of Diane. New, from Calvin Klein."

; )

Also, I hope you tell us how coffee went.

sherri said...

Well, if you ever change your mind...

And it's Okay if you like Big AL better, you old lady, you!

*And don't you know that my son would be THRILLED to know I was secretly trying to set him up with my friends online?

Mel said...

The growl needs to be more throaty.

Let's put coffee dude in perspective. He is 1 year younger than Cori's boyfriend, who is 4 years younger than she is. And, Cori was Ryan's age when you met her.

Heh!

So are you saying that the "essence" of Diane is not a cougar????

blognut said...

I happen to know that the essence of Diane is waaaaaay more HELLCAT than it is COUGAR.

And I like that just fine.

:-)

She said...

Hellcat! Haha! See? I really can't wait to get you two together in person!

And, yeah, I can't do the cougar gig, either, even though the coffee house BOY is way cute!

;-)

Diane, you know that expression "I will try anything once"; that might apply here.;))
Thank you so much for your kind comment yesterday; your friendship means a lot to me and will always remain special.;))
Have a great Friday dear friend.;))

Diane,

you are correct. My teammates scare and depress me sometimes. And even though it is none of my business, I am trying to correct the problem by instilling common sense into these guys lives. Good thing I AM the coach, it carries a lot of weight.

Heather said...

Hmm - you're turning down a good looking boy that 20 years younger than you? That would put him close to my age right? Hey Sherri, sign me up! Haha...

Chris@Maugeritaville said...

Diane, Diane, Diane . . .

I'm all for waiting for the right person, of course, but in the mean time why not have a little fun? Personally, I feel kinda cheated because now we don't get to read a post about your night of wanton lust with a 20-something.

Sometimes, Di, you have to make sacrifices for the sake of your readership.

Greenfingers said...

'Essence Of Diane!' Sounds like a new fragrance. Never cheap but very hard to get....and well worth it!!!

As I ease back into Blogland, I have to tell you that your posts about The Boy had me smiling and feeling so happy. I'm with you ... 24 would make me feel OOKY too but what a wonderful wonderful ego boost!!!! I'd just cherish the moment, have a coffee and keep the good feelings that getting hit on by a 24-year-old boy!!!! You go girl!
