He must be, intelligent, funny, put women on a pedestal and have the utmost respect for men looking for love also. A good listener and a great wordsmith, I think the older man would be good, a few words of wisdom bout love, how to woo the female, etc etc....
if you check out my groups you will understand why? (its getting desperate!!!)
I do hope you dont mind me posting here for this....
Not for me, and certainly no unfaithfulness ever crossed my mind, though you were the person I was thinking of!!!
I am looking for a man to help me, come to the group and you will see, I so dont like advertising in other groups, hence my less than clear message.
I do think you will all love it though, LOVE LOVE LOVE
Okay here's the "tofu" of the matter...
I'm a "Vintage" Hippie Woman(53) though sprouts are NOT growing between my toes - but, I do like a crunchie bowl of granola now & then, and a warm hug from a tree from time-to-time, and would love to pet a whale. I would like to meet/connect with a man near my age, (44-60), and compliment each other's interests, dreams and aspirations...and make a little "whoopie' in the process.
I'm easy going - mellow, but my mind is always learning and creating as I love: Writing, reading, singing(I have a small group), music (mostly in general, but not Rap or Heavy Metal or the fingernails-on-the-blackboard-barbershopper type of yowling), fabric art, quilting, clothes sewing, cooking/baking, gathering with friends or my grown children, cafes, bookstores, NPR, PBS, natural foods co-ops, resale shops, herb pharmacies, walking along Lake Michigan(not so much in the Winter, except if it's in the 30 degrees range it isn't so bad), and I am a Unitarian Universalist. I have a number of social concerns I try my best to attend to when I am able. I am tolerant, patient, understanding, an absolute joy to be around --- and the first to proclaim I'm not perfect. Just trying to meet up with someone to be imperfect with is all!
I am 5' 6", Br hairs & eyes, Red hair from a box (no, not an Eva Gabor wig...) - chin length and growing, average form, fun-loving, a witty and warm sense of humor, and can very easily laugh at my own faux pauxs when the occasion arises - trust me, I am my own best source of amusement! I have a 9-1/2 yr old Shih Tzu-Poodle mix dog named Louie.
Well, that's quite the gist of me. Film at 11.
Do your magic!
Peace & Unrest, Carol
I'm 19, kinda athletic, light brown hair, greenish eyes. 135 pounds. My hobbies are hiking, rock climbing, riding my bike, poetry, music...and about a million other things. I don't like smoking, but accept others smoking...but I don't drink, and it is the one major thing I won't tolerate in a mate.
Mutual trust, honesty, openness, no cheating...these are things I value.
I'm looking for someone 18-28. I don't care what you look like, just your personality. You've gotta be someone who won't hurt women. Or yell at them. And maybe you could share some hobbies with me. And please, nobody who drinks.
I'm a 32 year old, never married girl with no kids. I enjoy all sorts of things - but most often you'll find me biking, walking, reading, writing, camping, swimming, watching movies, watching sports, or drooling at car shows. I love country music and 70s music the most, but I'll listen to almost anything. I'm currently living in MI, but I'll be moving to TN shortly. I'm close to my family and consider them to be my best friends.
I'd love to make some new friends so feel free to write!
Right, a bit about me: I'm a young, divorced but very loving 33, with plenty of time on my hands, living on my own in Ely, near Cambridge, UK. I'd like to meet someone who sings with joy and love, loves life as much as I do and who isn't afraid of dropping me a line on the off-chance Make my day/week/year/life and yours, by being the right person to be my 100th care2 friend
A straight male, spiritual, nature loving, animal loving,people loving, musical, music loving, fun loving, not wanting additional children, able to be alone, knows how to be together, can teach, can learn, can listen, can love, can hold, can let go. On Long Island or close to. 40 - 50, cares for inside more than outside.
I think this is more of a prayer or a meditation than a thread but here it is anyway.
Peace not pieces, peace and Love
I also believe my best days are ahead, but along the way I try to have as much fun as will fit in my limited free and financial times.
Merlo or Cabernet? Clink, Cheers.
What kind of man do I want? A man who likes people and experiencing other cultures. A man who likes to travel, but is comfortable going to a small guest house or renting a room with a family, so that you really experience the people of the area. Someone who likes to participate in sports rather than just watch them. Someone who can sit and watch the ocean or sky for hours and marvel in the enormity of it all...or get all dressed up and enjoy a play... Someone who 'gets' my passion for my causes, whether they agree with me or not. Tolerence of others is the key...and enjoying just being alive on this earth.
Ha is there anyone out there like that? Hard to put what you are 'looking for' into words...this is a good start.
Oh and Amos...I know that you are already 'taken.'
iam Pharmacist ,divorsed i dont drink,dont smoke
love movies ,love to travel,go out,i live in cairo but dont mind to move because i spent most of my life travelling
Sometimes, we'll be immature, laughing and careening through life, as you can tell from my postings. We'll dance to soul music, do an Irish jig and eat at the Mexican restaurant. Life will be a mural. None of that all black, all brown, all white stuff. A collage. Any yahoos out there?
Because I SO resonate with what kind of a man you want, I tried sending you a star, BUT I just learned that only 1/week is allowed. Darn! Just wanted you to know ... ! And, yes, I know, if you find him, he's yours!!! hahaha
May you dream of discovering the man of your dreams and bring him back into your daily life!
Ha ha ha...I studied Scottish Highland dance for years...gotta watch those swords! You could lose a toe!...grew up on Motown. Spent a month in S. Africa last year finding myself (yup I was lost.) Made a mid-night raid on a men's military college many moons ago~crazy enough?
Who would be the sensable one?
Cat hee hee
Ha!!! You are so sweet! How about you take all the 'perfect men' in the west and I'll take the 'perfect men' in the east (notice I said 'all the perfect men' ~ I'm a dreamer too!!)
At the moment just thrilled to be enjoying all the fun people in all the different groups of care2!
You can spot a LEO a mile away...dividing up their prey!
(Think we have scared them all off yet??)
I was teasing our very spirited friend as to being only funny only in his own mind...
I used to be a f/t sarcastic smart a*s, and sometimes it rears it's ugly head, what can I say... I'm still reforming myself
I wish you all the best in finding whatever you are looking for. I find even when we do find that person we can fall softly into life with, we still should continue searching in one way or another to beas complete as we can be, may it be together, or even more importantly, for ourselves... It's a lifetime work, isn't it?
In the past, I've dated quite a bit from online, and it can be very interesting, indeed! If there weren't already so many books now written about it "the right/safe way", I would start a thread.....
I personally, was not into going to bars. I wasn't meeting anyone of substance in all the wonderful places I used to go, either. Botanical Gardens, Central Park, anywhere in the city..etc. The man I married, is not one that would just walk up to someone and make conversation, but, I was, and it still didn't happen that way. We met through a mutual friend, but began from online becaause I wanted to see what he was about through, letters, I.M, etc. first. Being all the experience I acquired from the "Match.com" and the likes, I c ould tell pretty quick if it was something I was interested in pursuing or not. Probably, because I knew myself pretty well. This was all because of the experience I acquired doing it. I had been hurt quite amount of times, but looking back on it all, I wouldn't change one thing!!! Speaking to people from around the globe was my favorite part of the experience... I even thought I was once in love with someone from England....but he was trying to change me from who I was and well...you know how that ended. There are lot's of stories to tell, but my garden awaits.
May all of you're own "gardens" florish!
Your wonderful, helpful personality comes through your posts...um...naturally! I caught the 'in his mind thing'...and giggled out loud...my daughter is convinced that I am loonie!
I look forward to lots of helpful hints from you as I have been out of the dating scene for ah...oh...two decades!!!
What am I thinking?!
By the way, I lived in Ohio once upon a time! Near Cincinnati!
So, just how far is Cairo from Alexandria, anyway?
You may wish for some asssistance in "getting back in the swing of things", and I have lot's of past experience of "being in the swing of things".
I have never been to Cincinatti and wish to... There is even a possiblity that we may oneday move to that area, so as to be closer to a larger and "better" city than, Toledo (not my idea of great city if you ask me!!..lol)
Samir, so are you divorced, or are you separated (what you're profile states), or somwhere inbetween?
Oh, and Joy and Catherine, you two sound like you ought to stick together
Joy and I seem to get each other's humour...it started on a different thread? or group. Sorry in advance but fear all our posts will have weird humour!
I do have a serious side which you have seen.
By the way..I am the Leo...not Joy...her birthday is closer to yours!
I guess if I was going to pretend to be well behaved, quiet and demure...I've blown that right out of the water...I'll never date again!
Catherine, how in the world do you know when my birthday is? Is it in our profiles? I don't see where...
Catherine, you are exactly one year and a day older than my oldest brother. I am sure you are nothing like him though!!!
NN: I am a researcher...ha I researched your birthday, page two of profile! and Joy is so named due to proximity to holidays!
AR, dear: I mis-spoke...perhaps not 'taken' but Bee would have my hide!
As per the 'slant' on my post...Zora made me do it see above!
What can I offer ! Lord have mercy! (Not Lord Tom by the way).
Can I get back to you on that??? I'll have to go make it sound all nice and pretty...and so it will take me a long while!
BBLTL (be back long time later) Cat
Has Tracy been talking? Oh I'm gonna have a chat with that red head!
Bring it on, Leafy!!!
It doesn't actually matter that I'm married, does it????????
Cat....tsk! tsk!....would I reveal your deepest darkest secrets? (Yup...in a heartbeat, for the right amount of money.....)
Amos....I shall protect you from the Texas Tornado....not!
~ You guys are too funny!
I don't want much, or so "I" think. I need a man who:
Won't try to change me...will respect that I both want to share the 'simple' things in life; yet also respect my need for solitude and time it takes to assist other's. A man who can make me laugh -> (most important)...that alot of my 'exs' have remained as my friends...I am brutally honest and a man is history if he lies...We 'visit' each other and live separate...A man who respects other's, at all times...A man who agrees to disagree...A man who can tolerate/respect/accept my 'causes' in life...A man who is NOT materialist/hung up on himself, etc.,...A man I can just sit with in the lounge chairs at night, enjoying watching the moon, listening to crickets, dreaming, unwinding, walking through the woods, creeks, etc...A man who can take his negative experiences in life and put them in positive gains to help himself, as well as other's...
Hmmmmmmmmm...Well, I guess I was wrong ~ I want alot...probably 'why' I'm still single...Ha!
Smiles, Light & Laughter!
Let's start there then...my personality becomes more and more evident with every post that I write. I give myself away it seems.
I am hem...a wee bit talkative (very obvious in real life, although I can be quiet at the right times). I have more energy than any human has a right to have and this can work in your favour. I can walk, hike or bike all day, without much complaint. (Amos! do not comment.) I love fitness and prefer really strenuous things like tae bo boxing and weights...I can therefore hang out with you at the gym and keep up with the best of them! I also like to sit by the fire, read a book or listen to music-many kinds.
On a more serious side...I am very passionate about the things that I believe in...or the people I love. I will stand my ground on a belief, and yet really listen to the other side...have actually been persuaded to accept the opposite view as a possibility because of the explaination...so I'm not totally rigid. (leave it Tracy) I am fiercely loyal and will protect friends to the bitter end if necessary. I am the kind of friend whom you call at the last minute for a ride to the airport, or help moving something-I'll be there in a heartbeat. I like to do such a variety of things that we would not argue much about where to go and what to do..fishing? great...theatre?...great...local kids sporting event?...great. I like people and to be around people...experience people. I am a little zealous on some issues, like prejudice...I hate humankind's injustice to humankind and animal-kind-just don't get me started!
Texas Tornado kinda sums me up unfortunately...think independent, perky, outgoing, tomboy, who will stand up for friends and a good cause...fearless often, and yet vulnerable.
Is that even close? all of you who know me?
I am female,51,live in phoenix. I consider myself layed back. I love to laugh, and joke. I would like a friend,companion and then hopefully more.
Of course I like the moutains and desert.camping out, cooking out.I am not hard to please on having fun. I can stay at home and cook, or enjoy a fun night out.Honesty is a big must with me and my partner.
I enjoy a man who is funny, understanding,cuddly and not afraid to show affection.Average built, mustaches and beards are nice.Someone who doesnt play mind games and speaks his feelings. just a fun guy and who knows how to treat a lady.
I wont ask anything from him that i cant give either.
So, thats me
that's Cat in a nutshell....
(Well done, girl....you summed yourself up brilliantly!!!)
(She neglected to tell you that she's also sweet, loving, caring, funny, smart, attractive and the best that either Canada or Texas has to offer! And I know these things....we've been friends for almost 30 years...)
We always think we dont want a lot till we write it down, its like I not really doing anything this weekend, just, mowing the lawn, weeding the yard, cleaning the house, grocery shopping, doing laundry, going out to dinner with friends Thats saturday, Sunday, Meditation class, Guitar class, fixing the bathroom leaky sink, hiking with the dogs, maybe taking in a movie,(yeah good luck), visitng friends, cleaning out the car. Oh not to mention I would like to make some jewelry, use the sewing machine I bought, maybe meet someone and have sex once in a while ya know.
I love ya.
Have a nice weekend.
She is one of those kids that tries to make you behave! Don't worry she hasn't been successful yet! Ha!
Tracy: thanks for the fanfare and great words! Nobody knows me like you do! and let's keep it like that!
LOL @ Margaret!
~ You are so 'right'...Man, I forgot about the things I 'need to do'...Ha! I believe I am going to go and take a nap, I didn't come home last night and I'm dead on my face...(funny, I can't seem to 'keep on truckin' with just a couple hours sleep like I used to...
But, first, I am going to go outside and pull out my 'kiddie pool' for tomorrow (I left my adult in-ground pool with the ex <what was I thinking? Ha!> But, if I lie on the float, in the kiddie pool, close my eyes, and have the big fan blowing on me, I can pretend I'm floating in the ocean, and the ocean breeze <being the fan>...is blowing on me! Pitiful, 'eh...just pitiful ~ it's a good thing I have a great imagination!
~ Exciting weekends, 'eh? Ha! Ha!
Smiles & Laughter!
What am I looking for? Honesty, understanding, self confident (but I'll be there for you on the bad days too, (guys need the same)) Smiles are good!
I love to laugh.
They do? Only kidding, of course they do too, everyone wants to be loved and respected. If you add to that and _____, and ______,and______, and _______ thats when it gets too much.
Cindy, enjoy the pool, its not pittiful, its your pool. Lay back and think of me I have to work today, no pool for me.
....and likes the color green, and likes seafood and loves to travel.......
ya mean like that?
LOL! You're all too funny!
Greg, grab the ladies and come join my kiddie pool party! Ha! Ha! I'll let you have the green float!
I'll be in the pool with my rum/iced-tea, enjoying the breeze (box fan)...Ha!
Really, I think the only love we can find is online with our friends. at least our minds can love, thats not a bad thing. I think my dating days are over. haaa
Good plan...I've been told that it is when you least expect it that it happens...so 'give up on dating' I'll be rooting for ya!
Seriously, I can imagine the frustrations involved here and I will confirm my stories with you all when I have any! I know many people from my new job, or classes and I have met some really nice people and made new friends...but I have not met a person to date yet. I am not being too picky, as much as they should be single (LOL) friendly and we should click in some way. May I suggest a vacation from dating and then return anew when you are refreshed!
Stay in touch my Lee.
sometimes I guess it isnt meant to be. i meet alot of the wrong guys. So time will tell and I will stay here bugging u allhaaaaa
Thanks Cindy, a float would be nice.
You had me there all the way to green??? Does spruce or teal count as green? Enjoy Cindy's pool, perhaps I will join you all there.
I believe I used the "you have to kiss a lot of frogs" example when I spoke with you another day...but Amos puts it so much more eloquently...end result is the same...Lee, you are worth finding for a 'great someone' and you will find them. (Resort to telepathy if you must!) In the meantime you do have all of us and we are 'real' friends.
Yes, teal or spruce counts. I was just being silly with the, ....., ....., ..... crack. But, I do like green.
Have a great week everyone.
I was being serious! except for the they do remark. Its not the basics that twist us up its all the others, exzample: I want a kind, compassionate, passionate person, who is loving towards animals and people alike(which is a lot already) we add, finacially secure(which means to many more than secure), attractive (which can mean either a size 6 or muscular), loves to travel (which can mean take me on vacations I myself could not afford), nature lover(which could mean to some a drive in the country not a hike in the woods), Loves animals (which means he likes my dogs and cats, but is not into reptiles).
So yes I crack jokes a lot, but it is just to try to keep it light because all the and _____,and______and________ wear me out, plus I dont really want to believe them anymore.
Peace not pieces, peace and love
I think I hear what you are saying. There is a basic list to begin with: sensative, likes sports, independent and loves to travel. Which can already mean different things.
Then when you match certain criterion, you move into the sub-list and that is where it gets tricky. I like to participate in things, not just watch sports on TV. I am sensative in that I feel. I am sensative about certain issues and I am passionate about those things which concern me. I truly care about how people are feeling. I am independent. By this I mean that I can earn enough to take care of my needs and 'take care' of myself. I don't need someone else to help me buy a new air conditioner. I have interests and don't need to be entertained and yet I love being part of a greater number than one. I am a care giver by nature. I like to help, assist and make others' lives easier or more enjoyable. I want my 'other' to be involved in some of the things that I enjoy, not just two people rotating in circles that rarely meet. As for travel...I can afford my own adventures. I would love to be able to stand at the top of a mountain or the edge of an ocean and turn to someone beside me and say isn't it wonderous...then years later remark "that view was spectacular wasn't it" and have them agree, or at least understand the feeling that I am experiencing. Travel to me does not mean how many different cities can we squeeze into two weeks!
After you have met someone who now fits into how your world spins and you into theirs, it gets trickier. I am sensative and yet I don't want to listen to your problems is a big difference...I am into sports with a best man standing attitude, is a problem. Or I like to travel to cities and you like the countryside, again an issue. I am independent and I will not help you because you can do it on your own...again it is a problem.
Ha and this is the fun part...the sub-sub-list...you like green, but I hate green (just an example Greg), but can we work around it? That is the problem with the list...it can be too rigid...can we come to a meeting of the minds on the finer details...
Margaret...I feel the best thing is to defiine who we are on the surface...if there is an issue that is rigid, ie. "I am neat and you are a slob" and it is vital to a relationship, then it needs to be defined. Staying open to exploring the possibilities of new experiences is one of the wonderous adventures of experiencing life with a new person, and yet not everyone feels this way. Personally, I still want to grow and want to learn new things with my partner. There are many questions in life that cannot be answered and how to "make the list" is one of them.
I guess that is why Amos suggested that I present what I might have to offer, rather than listing what I am hoping to find...although a little of both is a good mix. Oh that person sounds interesting and oh I see myself written on that page, go hand-in-hand perhaps.
What do I know...I had been married forever (but not now-just to clarify)!!...but I see and hear people everyday and you learn somethings...
I may have gotten off your point, but I hope that I have touch on some of it.
No you are on point., what I was actually saying is something I have been thru. Once I meditated long and hard for the universe to bring me someone who was Kind, well that is what I got, he had nothing else, no job, outstanding debt, physical illness, no plans, but he was Kind. The kindest. When the and_____,and______,and______, showed up I was told well I never thought I would meet someone like you, their failure to properly plan for a committed relationship, became my failure to properly put it out there. Anyway time marches on and Kind is good, Kind is really, really Good. Completely doable and acceptable and all the and_____, and______, ands_____ are just that.
I think we should simplifiy ourselves, after all we want is really really basic if we are truthful about it.
The and, and, and list when written out look kind of silly dont you think? and in reality do not really get us what we want.
ex. Just an AND example not what I really want.
Woman wanted, Big or small brested(depending on preference), Tall or short, weight give number to correspond to height., Hair length, Intellectual or dumb bunny type, Consertive, republican, liberal, moderate or other, Income$ from --- to ---, Big or small butt (again preference, Independent meaning _______.,(this is 2 seperate sentences ) likes to be on top,bottom, other spell out again preference. Will enjoy cleaning up after me and wiping the toilet seat.
Man wanted, Big strong type or short gentle type or exact height, Intellectual or bully type, washboard abs or beer belly, give height to correspond to weight ratio, long, short, bald headed, Must have income between $------and -------, Big or small, flat or round butt, klingy or independent which means ______ and ________, likes to be on the bottom or top, will enjoy sleeping with cat or dog hair on the sheets.
See what I mean?
I am so glad that I didn't lose the point! Yes, the and__, and___, list does get very ridiculous! I must admit I laughed out loud at the pet hair on the sheets reference! It can be an important point! but is it really a determining factor!
I believe we are both saying that there are maybe personality types...just to an extent and not to be limiting...and that we should be willing and eager to explore whatever else the other has to offer!
Personally it is really what is in a person's soul that interests me the most...I could learn to appreciate green after all...
Have a good day Ms. Margaret!!
Well absolutely. But it is a start. If it was as simple as listing 10 things and then *bing* instant mate, no one would be posting here.
If I wanted somebody who liked exactly what I liked, I would never learn or see anything new. I would never taste a new flavor, I would never learn to think in a way I hadn't before. Eek, how boring.
It's all good. People are dynamic, I love that, I love suprises.
You are right, oh so, so right.
Surprise I am not a real blond.
I was, now I am experiencing what I call follicle drift.
I like that in a man.What about you? do you like that in a woman?
Ah! Ha! It seems were are attaining a meeting of the minds! Yes!
I call dating someone just like me "redundent." I am always exploring new avenues, life is an adventure that I choose to experience.
Ha...I would be the natural blonde...good Dutch genes...and I honestly can claim a blonde moment! Greg, your folically challenged status is so au currant!
Talk to everyone soon!
Sorry addressing both,
Margaret,.....judgement on physical, I find beauty in all sorts of people. Do I like the physical, yes, I think everyone looks at physical beauty with some form of amazement and "oh my" but I'm not that shallow. I find beauty in intellect and intent, heart and spirit(oops more,...,...).
Catharine, Ah, that's my Dad's side, Dutch, Mothers side Hungarian, both Grandads were bald by their 30's, my Dad has more damn hair than I do. I got lucky I guess.
Life does little things like that to us... it is a fun ride no matter what we look like...I had an accident this spring...ha got my nose and my chin loaded with stitches! Now that's attractive...You just have to laugh!
Yes the body is a beautiful piece of art is it not? I love to look at all kind of bodies and people on the street, one good thing about my job, you can people watch without looking like a nut.
I think your both beautiful. do you guys like my picture? Yes I am blue or at least was till I met you.
That's sweet Margaret,
Hope your evening is pleasant.
I am just mastering the things beyond keyboarding and added smileys..so I can't get the characters yet...this will suffice I hope...mei guan xi...
Thank you...I am glad that we have met here and other locales...perhaps a nice green picture ?? since it is the favourite colour here at the moment!
Have a good weekend all, I'm off to my sisters graduation.
Hellooo. Must have been a good weekend all the way around!
How was the graduation?
Hi Amos sweetie!
Hello both of you,
It was good, saw a lot of family I havn't seen for almost a year. Sis graduated from Rhode Island School of Design double major focus on Exterioir Architecture, corporate structures, hospitals. Brilliant woman, wonderful classmates. I went to a couple of museums, saw the graduate shows and hung out at a graduation artist warehouse party until 4:30 am on saturday. Just talking art and meeting people. Makes me want to go back to school again! I miss the immersed intelectual buzz, raw talent and eternal optimism of people who love to excel.
Rhode Island is a wonderful school, so it is apparent that your sister is very talented! I miss those college days too. We all thought we knew so much, and we were so spirited - oh the idealism! Ha.
It was a great day for me! I have two part-time jobs-long story. I work in a law firm, but the best part is that I teach some sports skills classes to children! Wears me out but I'm happy!
Absolutely! I was so impressed with the graduate work. Just amazed. It was so strong!? It was interesting watching the rest of the family/ families trying to make sense out of theoretical and conceptual work. Yes the idealism is so refreshing, nothing can stop them at this point, beautiful to watch.
How was your weekend?
I teach soccer, basketball, and t-ball to the 3-5 year olds before they start all their league sports...Coach Cat It restores your spirit.
Amos Hope tomorrow is better!
LOL!! I happen to have more energy than anyone really needs and so it is a perfect job for me.
...besides the kids love me!
I already responded to your "fantasy" list!!! LOL I went there first!
Kenyatta...despite my ridiculously silly responses in these threads (my new friends make me laugh!) I have a degree in English Literature! I read as much as I can and seem to get caught up in topics for a while.
O O O O O H ~ Sure!
While a lot of us have been talking about our romantic fantasies let's have a reality check. One of my co-workers just called to ask me to switch shifts with her so she could get a restraining order against him. My next door neighbor has been making eyes at me and told me her last relationship included domestic violence.
My last relationship was with a woman who was the caregiver for her elderly mother. I notice that several of the women on this list in my age have children. I know of women who are caring for their adult mentally ill children. these are the issues I consider when I think of the possibility of joining a woman's family.
you have that right Margaret I have a lot to consider and with my own kids I watch out for perves also...
part fantasy part reality, what I want in a relationship/partner is trust, a feeling of mutual respect, digging each other in the bedroom and out, a good kisser, gentle yet firm, educated, I have two masters one in fine art the other in art education, so a lover of the arts is a must, open to others differances and accepting of them. someone who looks at the little things and gets a kick out of them, easily amused you know the one who finds wonderment in a shard of blue glass that just happens to be in a place where one would not expect it to be. Looking for the hearts in the world but also able to handle sorrow. Someone who looks at me from across the room and we both know there is no one else there who can satisfy either one of us.. like we were in the room all by ourselves... Ok you catch my drift...
Most days lately I am just too tired to give it thought. In the last year and a half of my job, they base your pension on your last 3 years so I work like a mule to pad my pension and also just to make ends meet (which they rarely do) as a single mother of 2 two legged ones and 3 four legged ones and l winged one. by the time I pay one pile it is past due to pay the next pile. I never had the luxury to continue my education raising kids and working like I do. Would love to pursue my arts, music and other various intersts. I suppose I do ok. Just tired is all. Almost time to take my nap on the train. (do 4 hours there daily). You have a lot to offer as do most of the men and woman I get a chance to chat with in this lovely site. We will just have to put out one big collective plea to the universe that we all get what we seek for. big Love.
Peace not pieces, peace and love
Snoring with your mouth open LOL...thanks for making my day...oh heck my week!
Love the avi !
Just thought I'd say hello, hope all is fun and well.
I've been busy as heck.
Welcome back to the land of the not-so -busy! Don't you just love the 'real' Margaret!
Love the photo...even better than the one of your dog! lol
Yes, much improved pic!
Right, you're not busy with 2 jobs. Teaching kids is work! Fun work though.
You are most welcome...and FYI I need my computer wiz kids to help me too! That is why we had those children...to help us out from time to time!
Yes teaching the kids is both fun and work!
Well, since I am fairly new in this group and considered an unknown at this time, I don't expect any of you regulars here making any attempts to connecting me with someone. But I do wonder if any of you ever done matchmaking for a friend, and if so,
how successful have you been so far?
I am very open-minded to having others do the love connection for me
(yes, I can accept dares!). But if you do, all I ask is "look northbound to Canada". In the meantime, I look forward to getting to know you in this group.
I wish you all much luck and happiness!
As for me, I don't want to date anyone...I'm tired of all the octupus men, ya know?
For the first time in my life I want some time to reflect on what "I" want and need...am I the only one feeling this way?
That's a tough question. Hi there everyone. I'm a 41-yo divorced mother and I live in Maryland. I'm 5'8", have long, curly brown/red hair, light brown eyes. I'm new to this dating thing and since I don't go to bars, I'm clueless on where to meet men. I'm looking for someone with a wonderful sense of humor, interested in environmental issues, someone who thinks out of the box. I do want someone taller than me. I want someone who is kind and loyal and generous with their affections. He should also be emotionally mature and healthy.
I hope that's not too tall an order. Let me know what you all think. I look forward to getting to know you all.
By the way...not all men are octopuses as sumone in here shared. Hey,... I can be as touchy feely as the next guy but certainly not without being asked first to do so.........beleive it or not there are men in this world that will wait till your ready for such things.......well as long as it aint a year or 3 later....hahahaha
My name's Kaylii I currently live in WI but am still debating on moving to Fishtail, MT. I'm seeking a male over 18 and is a Christian. Looks don't matter to me, I'm very affectionate, and artistic...any questions about me contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out my profile....
Hi, I am Mel from Texas. I am 58, grown children and would love to find a nice man near to be a friend, partner, companion, and more. I love animals, baseball, swimming, reading, cooking, open to most types of activities. I have been there, done that and now looking for that special man to be part of my life. Would love for him to have children of his own, so he would know, that no matter what their age, they will always be in your life. I am very close to my grown children and love to spend time with them and my friends. I am a toucher, hugger and kisser, he would need to be the same type person.
i found a hugger and a kisser. in fact i gave her my sore throat. she's a coworker. we had been flirting back and forth and finally i got up the courage to ask her out. what a revelation.
i'm 16...female...just looking for someone who won't regard me as a game...

it's time to hit the school books. i would hope you understand the prority of completing your high school education. so many kids drop out in search of so called romance and girls like you become pregnant. there is plenty of time for boy friends long after you have completed the immediate tasks of your life. and you will have more to offer.

in case people think i'm too harsh, i just met with a nice 30 year old at the crisis center where i work who dropped out on high school and still has not been able to finish her degree. her happiness revolves around her boy friend. and oh yes she has at least 1 child. sound like a fun life?
I thought you were too harsh!
First of all, this is a dating thread and also 16 year old are welcome to post here.
Second, all I've seen is a post from a 16 y/o looking for someone (a boyfriend I assume) that will take her seriously. A responsible young girl that is not into games regarding relationships.
Beautiful and heart warming....
What did she say or do to deserve such an hostile behavior?
I understand that you are talking from experience taken from your line of work. However, your scenario is completely out of context. It has nothing to do with this young lady. I think she deserves more respect!
When you are exposed to problems on daily bases (professionally for example) there is a risk of losing proportions. There is a tendency to build hypothesis based on extremity and not on the actual reality. Usually doom-scenarios. where threat, fear and moral-blame are used as tools of influence.
With other words, you start seeing problems where there are non. You think to have recognized a potential victim and try to rehabilitate it by is blaming and predicting disasters.
And where did you get the idea that a love-relationship is bad for teens?
Love-relationships are part of the immediate tasks in teens life, they are even necessary for the development of a healthy sexual-identity.
As all people, also teens have needs and feelings that need to be nourished. All in the proper proportions of course.
Your example didn't convince! It is not a proof, it is an excuse.
I know how to love and swoo a girl ..... poetry all forms of love and affection show a woman that you really care for her and only her .... no games ..... but the girl that takes my hand will have to have pacience No Cindy your not the only one ..... that is so true, I am at a point well ; I take care of my parents. Its always been a quality of life thing / Both parents are stroke survivors ,moms a diabetic and takng care of them takes up alot of time. Its not really fair to female relations ..... but those who dare cross the road thinking everything would be alright got lost in emotions wanting more, I wanting more. Its unfair to them and well dating sucks - Im not into one night love affairs ..... and would rather make it fair to the next guy. Somebody tell me Im giving in too easy
Id like to meet someone though
i' am not hostile at all. whatever age we are at, we become much more interesting when we are living full lives developing ourselves as human beings to the fullest.
my girl friend is now my laundry buddy, too. now, that's true love. i have a lot of clothes!
I am a 52 years old filipina teacher. I live alone because my three kids are all married. I like to meet a man with age ranges from 52 to 65. He must be a God- fearing and open minded one. I hope and pay that i meet the man i am looking to be my life companion, friend, and my soul mate....... Eunice
you meet the man of your dreams, too ... good luck!
good luck to you, Eunice. and everyone else still looking
