With my mother it is Everyone Loves Raymond and Frasier reruns. But going over there is still helpful. She lost my father about a year and a half before my wife died. So she know exactly what I am going through. And she lives a block away.

I am very sorry you qualified to join our group of widows Leadfeather.

You were right to let the lady know it's in her court if there is a next step.  In the meantime get out there at least a couple nights a week with new ladies.

Show your mom how to use POF and Ourtime.

Thanks L2F, I have a mountain biking get together tomorrow and just set up a lunch M&G for Monday. So, yay? As for my Mother she is content to live on her own at 73 and has no desire to recouple. ;)

LeadFeather -- no harm in showing her. My mom is a bit older than yours and my dad died almost 23 years ago. Interesting how life changes: when I was a kid we had a neighbor and a woman my mom worked with lived with him. The two never married on paper but were together for ages. The woman died and several years later, my dad died. My mom moved out of the house I grew up in and time went on. The neighbor moved to a town maybe 20 minutes from my mom and they became friends, talking about my dad and my mom's co-worker. Next thing you know, they are a 'thing'. She has her home, he has his. They spend time together and are each other's contact for medical emergencies. It just works. You never know  ;)

And all the best on the biking and the M&G!

Arneal... I took it that way. Told him I’m looking to date one person , not a sex buddy . I’m about to offer a reward for finding a nice guy lol

arneal's post about re-coupling later in life reminds me of the book Our Souls at Night - has anybody read this?  It's now a movie on Netflix and stars Robert Redford and Jane Fonda.

momtojandj  The guy sounds like a flake, good that you found out sooner rather than later. There are good guys out there, really!
Have I told you lately how much I love you?

I was going to say something like "embrace the madness" but that is probably what they want. . .

Went on a first date with a guy last week.  During our lunch he asked me about the size of my late husband's penis  :o

Can't make this stuff up!!!

I had one who went into a day by day narrative of the last month he and his wife were together, including the details of when they were intimate, on our first and only meeting.

Ugh- one of my "best" first dates last year- guy (who seemed great in his profile) shows up to our date late and stoned. Then I hear a blow by blow play of the break up with his ex-wife who ran off with his friend when he lost all his money in the real estate market and his friend was richer than him. Then he showed me pics of his ex who was dressed in very revealing lingerie and doing "sexy" poses on a bed - and these are pics he kept in his phone. Then I got to hear about how he was going to make even more money than his friend and show her. Then he said he thought we were so comparable and should def go on a 2nd date (to which I politely declined). I can't make this stuff up. Hope it gave a few people a few chuckles...
