Ok I'm tired of this , tired of online dating .. The guys who just stop messaging , or the ones who just want to talk and talk and don't ask me out, tired of talking about myself and explaining I'm a widow , explaining the reasons I stopped working until kids are out of high school. We all know nothing matters if there's no chemistry .. So ask to meet , coffee .. Just tired of searching , trying , I reach out , I wait for them .. I need a break .. You think ?? 😜

That does suck, lately I am having guys give me their cell numbers and want to meet right away.  I understand this, because this chatting thing and then them go poof, sucks!!  My problem is right now I am so dam busy that I can't even find time to go for a coffee so I need to clear some stuff off my calendar. 

What do you think about speed dating?

I tried to sign up for speed dating in Boston but it kept getting cancelled as enough men didn't sign up. I haven't heard a lot of success stories from speed dating but think it's a great idea. Sucess probably depends on timing and location....I say- why not?  : )

CW, I had to laugh at this one.  Imagine speed dating in Western Kansas. Would anyone show up??  And the only place people speed around here is on the interstate....and our speed limit is already 75.

:D

If speed dating didn't work well in Boston, it sure in heck not going to work in Northern Ontario but just for fun I just might call and ask them. 

Had a guy message me today, I read his profile.  He is looking for a girl 18-50 years of age.  Anyone else a little grossed out by that? 

Speaking of age difference I have been chatting with a guy for a week and he appears normal.  He is 11 years older than me.  Any opinions on that?

Haha well this thread says vents and laughs, this definitely gives me a laugh. They designed the block feature with this guy in mind, I learned to block these people right away.

11 years is no big deal in my opinion, but more importantly, what do you think? If you enjoy chatting with him and he seems interesting and fun, is 11 years a deal breaker for you? Its your opinion that really matters.

Some guys age very well. I don't feel age is a negative factor.
Maybe because I've seen great couple many years age difference.
It's the person not their age.

Ok, so I have a date Friday night. Messaged, texted and spoke on phone. I'm cautiously excited . I even asked him if he had teeth since I couldn't see them in his pictures.. Just needed no surprises . And asked if he was a serial killer . Boy am I jaded or what ?!

Early Google chat between Flavor and me:

Flavor:  I can't chat long. I have a meeting at 7.

Me:  Meeting? What kind?

Flavor: You haven't Googled me, have you?

Me:  No *sigh* What is it? Antichrist?  Sex offender registry?

Flavor: Worse.  I'm a politician.

What do you think about speed dating? 

The one time I was booked to go I never made it.

I think it has way better possibilities than on line dating.

Not as many men sign up in our age range and I've heard they say yes to everyone to get a possible match. Don't know if it's true or not.

I say it's worth a try.
Even for a few laughs and potential stories to share on this thread! 😂

Sure - What's the issue? I dated women between 20 years younger or older than me. I had a blast and I believe they did too. I learned at least one thing valuable about myself or of life from each one.

True beauty, grace, compassion and wisdom is timeless. To attempt to put an age limitation on it is a fool's errand.

Good luck and best wishes - Mike
The war is over for me now. But those of us who did make it have an obligation to build again, to teach to others what we know, and to try with what's left of our lives to find a goodness and a meaning to this life.

As I am new to this world, maybe someone else may benefit from this tidbit.  I am in a small town, and the dating site required the town you live in. I gave my NG my first name, he knew my town I lived in, and then I told him my professional credentials.  He found me on LinkedIn from that.  He is former and retired Military in terrorist "stuff."And a former MP and officer.  So, he told me he looked me up to show HE was trustworthy and a "normal" guy with lots of security clearance over the many years. He told me I was very evasive for our chats, but having a child and where I live, etc, I did it on purpose.  BUt he still found me..... Doesn't take much, I guess.
