I dated more than anyone I knew, and still -- when I met my husband it was through a mutual friend, just as my mother had always said it would happen.
So while I know there are people who met their mates through dating sites, it seems more of a crapshoot than I want to deal with, and there are too many scammers. But I have no desire to deal with old-age sex and little blue pills and trying to revive my old dried-out parts. If someone awesome dropped into my lap and was interested in me and I was attracted to that person, well, of course I am keeping an open mind. I went to a dance last Thursday (4 days ago) and met someone who wanted to come watch a movie with me. Now I am faced with trying to figure out how to tell him to leave me alone, lose my number, and that I am not interested in him. That did not seem too bad since my husband was 38 years older than myself. It was love at first sight, but the age difference kept us apart.
I was beginning to wonder if I was a little bit Gay, when it turned me off like that.
Maybe I'll find some good advice, or suggestions or maybe not. So, I'm approved as a member today and stumble across this dating topic and some terrifically wise advice from YOU, Sweet Melissa! Not to the same woman but still a married man and I'm sooo over that.
Can spot those nigerian internet cafe guys pretty easily these days.
And, I sound a lot like your mother these days as well!
Don't disregard any expert's advice or take any action as a result of what you read here. Also, I am just not that attracted to men my own age.
We're friends, not doctors, financial or legal professionals, and we're not "grief experts." But we are here, and we've been "there." Am I dating now? Many of them that I have encountered in day-to-day life who are not married, whether due to death or divorce, are like lost souls.
We see each other once a year but text almost daily since we're 1500 miles apart.
