    Speed Dating?

    I didn't make it to the speed dating event I had written about, but have been looking out for others in my area. I think I am ready to try and see what happens! Speed dating seems more my thing than online dating - and not sure how you meet anyone "organically" these days so what do I have to lose! If and when I do, I'll give an update! Thanks all for the info.

    Speed Dating?

    Thank you all for your responses. Michael, how does it work? After you are done meeting with each, do you get something showing who showed interest in you and who you showed interest in?

    Speed Dating?

    I am 8 years out and haven't had any desire to date. Until recently. My kids are grown and most of my time is spent working and helping my elderly parents who live nearby. I need something more in my life. I am not sure if I want to start dating or if I just would like friends to do things with, as most of my friends are married and still busy with kids. I know online dating is not for me and I saw an ad for speed dating. Anyone have any experience with this? It sounds easier and safer than online, but still kinda intimidates me!

    There are worse things than death

    I am so saddened to hear this. My heart breaks for Kate and her family. Will be praying for them.
  5. It's been a little over 8 years for me and I think about it occasionally, but not sure yet. It is not out of being loyal to my husband because we didn't have the best marriage, but I just don't know if I can deal with somebody else again. I put up with a lot in our marriage and know I won't ever do that again. If someone came along and it worked out great; if not, I think I'll be perfectly fine alone. Although sometimes it would be nice to have a guy to do things with. I guess only time will tell.
  6. I haven't heard this in a long time. Painting and cleaning today and it brought me to tears - a sobbing mess. Not that it's a terribly sad song, but we both loved it back in the day.

    Bluebird - I am so very sorry for your loss. You both have contributed so much wisdom on this board thru the years and helped so many. You and your family are in my prayers.

    We are on this board because.......

    I am here because some days, even after 8 years, I feel like this is the only place in my life that I know people can relate and not judge me.

    9 years...

    9 years probably feels like forever and sometimes just like yesterday. That is how I feel now at almost 8. Hugs to you. Hang in there.

    Invitation Advice Needed

    My daughter got married in August. She listed only her and her fiancées names. His parents are divorced and it just seemed the easiest way. Nobody was upset by it but it’s a matter of preference. I would think it is ok to put daughter of (your name) and the late (fathers name). Good luck with planning!!!
