Who am I? This is the never-ending question. In brief, I was
a single parent of two who worked a lot and had struggles. My financial
hardship came to a head in 2007. I lost everything, I wrote about it, including the stream of hilarious dating scenarios I went on in Vancouver Canada, I went to
therapy, stayed with a friend who supported me, and I supported her threw her
divorce. I started to reinvent myself in 2015 when I met my husband and we started
dating, I worked at a private school in Chilliwack, made a new life, tons of
great friendships, who are still very special to me today. I also at that time,
took the fitness course and got some what fit. I took part in taking seniors
for walks and I loved it. When it was time for me to be with my husband, I decided to
re-write the script of my life. This was no easy task. I was going threw career identity
change, because my 10-year profession was not recognized in the USA, it offered
very little pay. I never give up on life situations, I …
The Summer Plan...Well, it did not quite work as I envisioned.
Yes I sold all my stuff, Yes I lived rent free in the US..

I sold items in a US consignment store and lived off some of the earnings, I cashed in my dwindling Canada Bonds.I clearly did not think this threw.
OK...So September came, and the plan was to continue my 6 months in Hopkins...that did not pan out either. I calculated cost of parking in horseshoe bay. The daily ferry cost. The crazy playboy I'd be rooming with, and good thing I did, no work available till mid …
Well, you know he's a good man if he buys your tampons, that's all I can say, especially if he's a mans man, and buys your tampons.
Dating in Vancouver can be pretty tuff beans on a women, as I have talked about for the last 10 years.
You never know if your going to be stuck with the bill, asked to do "Dutch" Pay half or if the man has 5 other dates lined up for the week.
You get pretty daunted with hopelessness, and fear that you may be alone forever. Is he into you? or is he waiting for the next best thing?
Did he actually pursue you? Now there's a question. That means did he see you and make a attempt to date you? cause this is pretty dam grey in Vancouver. This means, you did nothing. You did not hit him up on chat, you did not find him among your friends, your friends did not pressure him to meet you or you meet him, He actively sought ways to try and date you.
Sometimes we date our friends, and realise all the reasons why you were only friends in the f…
