ahhhh....sweet! Did you ever think it was gonna happen?


Peggy's Cove...love. Was there with my mom in my early 20's. The tide was coming in and I was running all over the rock and my mom was yelling at me to come back! hahahaha. Always thought it would be a FANTASTIC place to be married. In fact....i even said that's where I'd wanna be married. But, 40 years later, doesn't look like that's gonna happen!!! lol


So glad that YOU are. And if able...post pics of the happy couple!


Hi Realitynut :)


Quite frankly, no. And I certainly never thought it would happen like this. Just prior I was dating someone else, for about four months. After that ended I figured I would jump back on the horse and start dating again, right away. I went on my first date exactly one week later. My intention was just to date casually and have fun, maybe make some new friends. Of course, if something happened, that was cool too.


I really thought at this point I would settle into a single life of easy dating. Nothing too serious. Which is kind of what she wanted also. On our first date we both expressed we weren't looking for anything serious. HA HA.


Don't lose hope. Peggy's Cove is awaits you :)

Interesting... when bf and i ran into one another, we told each other we weren't interested in dating per se. That of course there were people floating about but that we were focused on ourselves and pursuing our individual goals.


There is something to the idea of letting go, in a perhaps Buddhist sense of that concept; acceptance and openness, in contrast to pursuit.

Sportster, I had been purposely avoiding ENA for a long time, as I had felt like posting in my journal had become sort of a “negative feedback loop” for me (through no one’s fault but my own). While things have actually gotten a lot better for me (I’ve continued working on myself and my attitude, and while I’m still “mostly” single at the moment, life has seemed a lot easier), I remain hesitant to post anything here in my own journal anymore. I’ve just been trying to enjoy my own life and take things one day at a time and have minimized any comparisons to others.


Nevertheless, I have lurked around here from time to time. And I'm glad I did today because I got to see your post. I cannot tell you how this has actually physically warmed my heart. I'm not even exaggerating. I know you went through so much dating bullsh*t to get to where you are, and I just want to say, from the bottom of my heart - congratulations!!! I wish you and your soon-to-be fiancé the best of luck! :D


Hey JJ, always good to hear from you.


Thanks so much for your warm and kind words. Good to hear you are doing so well. Keep doing what you're doing, it's obviously working :)

    • 5 Things People Who’ve Been Mentally Abused Do
      Do you know how common mental abuse is? According to The National Center for Biotechnology Information, 80 percent of the population has experienced some form of abusive relationship and behavior. However, despite how frequent it is, emotional abuse is still hard to spot. Unlike physical abuse, mental abuse doesn’t leave any visible scars; instead, it affects someone’s behavior, mindset, and mentality. This means some people deny they’ve been mentally abused, and others may not even recognize the toxic behavior. So, whether you’re reading this to be able to recognize emotional abuse in others or recognize it in yourself, these a few things people who’ve been mentally abused do are sure to help you be more empathetic and kinder.

    • 5 Polarity Secrets to Attracting Love that Makes you Magnetic AF
      In this video, I'm going to show you the 5 most powerful ways to create polarity in order to attract love. Think of it like a magnet. If you have a magnet, it is going to attract, but also repel based on its polarity. If you have a positive and a positive and you put them together, guess what's gonna happen? They're going to repel each other. Same with a negative and negative. But when you have a positive and a negative, they clink right like this. The key to attracting love is embodying your own sense of polarity, which really is the authenticity of who you really are, letting go of what you are not so that you can attract love easier than ever. These are things that completely transformed my own life.
