Thanks BexL, as I said before I'd just had a row with a phone company (long story) so was probably not in the best frame of mind to read the post! I can't decide if I want to date or not and I think going on a few dates will make my mind up. I am also aware I am very picky. I don't know what I want but I am quick to know when I don't want something. I know people that have met people online but I also know people that have known their partners for years - went to school or uni with them for example. That seems so much easier to me!
