Let's hope so. He's coming to the US from the UK so...tons of

paperwork
first.


Interesting. An online romance then? Where in the UK?


He's on the Isle of Man. Beautiful place from the photos I've seen.


Never been but those that have certainly think it's worth going back.

Will let you know when the "big day" is going to be; as soon as I find

out.

Excellent. I'll try to be there. I look almost presentable in a suit.
:-))


I'll make sure there's a seat for you


You're too kind.


Paul

Well that 30 year milestone has come and gone for me. I hit 33 in 3

weeks.

Hitting things never helps in the long run. Try to find another way of
resolving your differences.

Ah, but I was told hitting a pillow was a good way to relieve anger. Is
that now wrong?


Of course. Even pillows have feelings.

I have a pact with one of my closest friends. If we're both single at
30 we're getting hitched. I'm not sure if we'll actually go through

with
it, but it's a comforting feeling.


I can see that it would be. It takes a lot of the stress out of the

whole
process doesn't it?


Yes I suppose, but then it adds another. I'm madly in love and if this
crashes and burns, do I really want to settle for something comfortable?
Frankly, no.


It's a personal choice, obviously, but I wouldn't "settle" either.

say
you haven't been warned .

So were you planning to post a form, or what? Maybe you should have a
website. With web enabled form, of course.


I dunno, I was assuming folks would send application letters by email or
whatever. The things that they felt it was important to mention would be

as
enlightening as what they actually said IMHO.

So does this mean you are expressing an interest?


[looks behind. looks beside.] Huh? Who, me?


Anyone at all really but you at the moment, yes.

I'm interested in online forms.....


Ah. From a technical point of view?

I'm interested in forms in general.....


Oh. I find them intimidating and boring in equal measure.

So tell us about your form, then.


I thought we'd established I didn't have any.

Act older I hope, look, well afraid not, I still get IDed.


Damn, girl! I only got ID'd until I was 26. And that was waaaaaaaay
back, when nutrition was poorer....vision was weaker....

Same here.

I want it all. Or nothing. And I'm just arrogant enough to think the
'all' is a possibility. If not, I'll live.

So how long a moment have I got, then? Should I start a timer? LOL

Whatever point of view's on offer, I'd say.

Oh. I find them intimidating and boring in equal measure.


I guess that'd depend on the form.

So tell us about your form, then.


I thought we'd established I didn't have any.


I'm sure I saw one when you were here....

You hit the nail on the head there, betsy.


Thumping punchline Laura ;-)

LOL no, I turned 28 in May.


Ah, younger than my two oldest.
They have no desire to marry by a certain age. Why do you?
In fact, why marry at all?

Dennis, married for life, twice!
