Hi all. I've been on DS since 2008. I started out on the divorce site, but have been divorced since 2009 and have since left that group.
I've put in decades of therapy and have done extensive work on myself. My life has been great and I thought I'd give dating a try. However.....I fill out the forms, but can't quite push the continue button or the complete button.
I was able to anonymously able to get on one site but didn't post a picture or any information except my age.
OMGosh....within 10 minutes I had 10 views and one wink! WTH????
Are these men that desperate?
I have been off the market since 1977. It appears that dating is so different.
Is there any such thing as a casual, get to know each other.....start out as friends any more? LoL.
A year ago I had coffee with a couple of gentlemen, but after an hour....they had our whole life planned out and ready to move in with me. Needless to say there were no second dates.....my choice. I have a list of what I would like. One big issue is I'm vegan and the pickings in that department is pretty slim. This is one of the primary reasons I haven't done a total sign up. The bigger issue is although I have kept myself in fairly good shape, I am still "older" (58 yo, but have been told I look mid 40's), so I've got a bit of wear and tear on me. I keep thinking guys expect me to have a perfect body and that is a bigger reason for an incomplete profile. Feedback from a guys perspective on this issue would be nice. I'm confident in all other areas of my life.
My life is complete and I don't need someone, I would just like someone to hang with at least once a week.
That's it in a nutshell. Dating advice would be great :)
Since moving to my new "independent senior home", I have been vilified and targeted right from day one. I have been here two years. Neighbors came forward and asked lots of questions and, I, wanting to fit in, perhaps gave too much information about myself. Most of the neighbors have large families, friends, some are still working, have wealth and are in a tight knit group with other tenants...
were you are are you disciplined for wetting the bed or pants? I’m not and nether is my brother but y’all know I babysit and last night I was sitting for a new family and they have a 8 year old that still wets the bed.
