Hi everybody! So cool that there's a support thread for others like me here!
I'm 43 (well, 44 in a couple of weeks), and I gave up on d@ting
a year or so ago. I have had so many people suggest eHarmony or Match.com as a way to meet a potential partner--Been There, Done That, and I wasn't happy with the results at all.
And the only interest I was getting IRL was from married men looking for something on the side, or single men looking for casual Scrabble--neither of which I PERSONALLY agree with from a moral standpoint. (YMMV.)
I've been in a few serious (i.e. to the point where marriage was discussed) rel@tionships
--but after my last Very Bad Mistake in that area, I'd rather be single for the rest of my life than be in another bad rel@tionship
As long as there are drinks offered, I'd like a virgin mojito, please. (I'm clean and sober and can't have the hard stuff!)
