The last time my friends set me up with someone lasted like 3 years. It was horrible, I hoped it would only last a couple months. (i was afraid to break it off, but I did in the end anyway) Then after that they wanted me to get with someone else....
Its just a no-way kinda thing. I let my friends choose who they want to be with, they're going to be the ones stuck with them...

Ahh see I think it depends what type of friends you choose to let set you up. I met my current bf that way. I told a guy friend of mine that he needed to find me a guy because I was fed up with trying to date. Now this was all said kind of jokingly as I never thought he actually would. A few months later he tell me he has set up the date for the following weekend. It was a group date situation for a birthday dinner. I drove 3 hours by myself to meet someone I had never even seen. And almost 3 years later we are still together and talking about marriage.

It takes an open mind and the courage to not settle to let people set you up. But I find it a lot better then meeting someone in a bar or like setting. I just don't understand staying with someone if it just isn't right. I made that mistake in highschool and quickly learned from it.

But back to the topic of horses, anyone around the twin cities area know of anywhere to buy cheap used tack? Particularly bits?? Maybe a tack swap kind of thing. My horse ate all my money, literally, and she needs a new bit and other training aids.

I've never had good experience with set up dates. My friends thought they knew what I wanted or needed, and it turned out to be the opposite of what I actually did. All of the guys I was set up with, or pushed onto in high school and junior college are WAY different than my husband. Thank goodness.

I agree it does depend on who sets you up. My sister met her husband through a blind date, but her friends obviously knew what she was looking for.

Oh and to comment on the single/alone thing. I believe there is a difference. You can be single without feeling alone, and you can feel alone without being single. They are two completely different things, and it all depends on state of mind. I have an uncle who is a bachelor, not because he didn't have options, but simply because he wants to be. He said he don't need a woman telling him what to do smart man! Lol. He isn't "alone" he just doesn't want to get married. He rather enjoys his "freedom."

What kind of a bit do you need, Poppy? I'm from Manitoba but my husband and I are actually heading down to Minneapolis next week. I have a 5 1/2" french link snaffle, a 5" curb and a hackamore that I don't need.

I also have a purple rope halter, a black nylon halter, and a fuzzy purple Western saddle pad. I don't like the saddle pad myself because it never seemed to shape properly and it's a little on the thick side, but you can have it if you want to try it.

I'm glad I never went with any of my friends set ups. I've only ever had one friend try, and since she thinks I'm strange as all get out, she picked the weirdest dudes. When all along the man for me had been six houses down all along :) my bf and I met when I moved into his neighborhood as kids :) he was the "bad boy" and my dad use to chase him down the street with tools like he was going to beat him for hanging out with me :) he's been my best friend for seven years, and my man for a year.
I get stupid when I'm single. I take good time too far. Its great for my career, (not as good as right now :) ) but I always end up chest deep in **** and swimming.

Oh I actually need a French link. What type is it? She's currently in a 5" Myler comfort snaffle though so not sure if a 5.5" would be to big?

I'll take a picture of it (when I can find it... my 'horse corner' of the garage has gotten a little out of control!) I think it's 5.5, might be 5. I'll measure it too. I just know it's too big for my little Arab x's mouth, she needs a 4.5.

Oh thank you. I have an Arab but the 4.75 rested on each side of her mouth so I think that was to small. I supposed I could measure her mouth haha.
