Happy New Year


New Years Eve and I had no plans for the evening. This is the time of year that you can feel rather lonely without a partner. I logged on to the Mature Free and Single website to read some diary entries and was surprised to see lot of other members online too.  Interesting! So it’s not just me then that is staying in on New Years Eve,

I was enjoying reading the diary entries, telling of years gone by and happy memories and I was smiling to myself whilst sat eating a bag of jelly babies, I know how to celebrate New Year.

As I scrolled down the page I noticed a good looking guy called Richard, who lived quite near to where I lived he had written that although he had been through a difficult few years he knew he would  that things would be better in 2014. I liked the fact that he had such a positive attitude, good on him I thought and decided that I would send him an email.

I wrote “Hi Richard, I’ve just read your diary entry and I have to say, I admire your positivity, good on you” and pressed the send button.

I carried on reading through the diaries chuckling thinking its not so bad being home alone on New Years Eve, because I had such good company in the comfort of my own home.

A message landed in my inbox from Richard and it said. “Hi Elaine, thanks for your email, just because I am at home on my own  on New Years Eve I am determined to remain positive because moaning gets you nowhere , look what being positive has done for me, receiving a message  from a good looking lady who lives so near me. Regards, Richard.

I smiled to myself a charmer huh, but I had to admire him. I had seen that a few members had put diary entries that sounded a little bit sorry for themselves; I can appreciate that it must be difficult for some people.  It’s a well known fact that Christmas and the New Year can be difficult for a lot of people.

Soon after that I started to get a steady flow of emails from my good friends on the site most of who lived miles away, we keep each other up to date of what’s happening in our lives.  We were like one big happy family.

My best friend on the site had managed to bag himself a date with a lady on the site that he had been pursuing and had thought she was not interested because she had cried off on one date due to her son breaking his finger and been asked to take him to A& E . I smiled to myself remembering the email he had sent earlier saying how excited he was. I do hope it was going well for him.

I was brought back to the present by an email alert hmm who could this be? It was Richard again , So tell me Elaine, what are you doing tomorrow would you care to meet for a drink.

It looks as if 2014 is going to be a good year for me
