Oh Goodness Me!

I truly think I am an open-minded kindof gal; I will try new things as long as they are safe and not too out of the ordinary. Is going on a dating site crazy???? Well, I am beginning to think so. You see, this is how the whole situation unfolded:
My very good friend living many many miles east of me is on a dating site and she has so many potential dates happening. And this has created for her, a whole new world. She is having so much fun communicating, learning, laughing and just enjoying. Sometimes she even goes out on a date for a meal, a concert or just a stroll. So after hearing how much she is enjoying herself, I decided to give it a go in my city, Austin, TX. Because I am such a newcomer, I thought what the heck. Maybe I will meet some new friends.
So far, NOT! Unfortunately all the men that have responded to my profile are exactly the opposite of what I am looking for. I took my time filling out the questionnaire carefully, anticipating a huge response but it just isn't happening. Either I wrote my profile incorrectly and the men aren't interested or, "what I am looking for" is not exactly available here in Austin.
The men that have responded, live 100's of miles away. That does not interest me. Also, it seems that a few are looking to have a second family....children! OMG, lol!
I have had one terrible experience with the dating sites years ago and I swore I never would put myself through that again. But my Spark Friend is having such a ball right now on her site, I took a chance. Oh well, at least I tried.
SO, life is slowly getting back to normal here after a horrendous week of freezing weather. I just got my utility bill and it wasn't too bad. After all, I was out of power for about 5 days.
I am really trying to adjust to my new living situation. I love my new home but venturing out is a whole different ballgame. I just still feel so out of place. I get tremendous waves of homesickness for California. I hadn't realize how different Texas is, a complete 360. It'll take a lot of time to get acclimated. Yes, more time than I ever imagined. Oh well, oh well...
