Find the good stuff
I hope it makes you feel better about not having found your life partner just yet. It certainly helped me feel better about not lowering my expectations. And the few I did faded when we tried to set up a 2nd date usually canceling on the day of!
Otherwise just have fun. Also what the fuck is with some of the people ITT? Does an inch actually matter that much to you? Yes, height matters, for a variety of reasons. Mouseover to view the metric conversion for this comment. I have a similar feeling towards taller women.
I feel less like a man if the woman is taller. But yet, I still am entirely willing to date a girl who is taller than me. But it certainly does make it harder to find a potential mate. Height and honesty have no relationship to each other.
True, you are a woman so getting dates is incredibly easy for you.. Requirements are not the same as preferences. Getting dates is NOT incredibly easy. It takes a lot of work, filtering, messaging and searching through profiles. Sounds like someone up there just has a serious height complex How would I even try such a thing? You need to reread my post.
My complaint is about liars and manipulators. No, not at all. The opposite is true. Also, why is employment status such a big deal to you when you say you can support a household? The guy who lied about having a job put in his profile that he worked part-time as a nurse and went to school part time to finish getting his nursing license.
He spent his time masturbating and watching movies his words. There was not a third date. Ah, there was also another guy who lied about being employed. He wrote in his profile that he had just changed careers and was loving his new job.
Come to find out on date 1 he had taken a bootcamp class in web design, had quit his job and was looking for a job in web design. It taints everything with an air of "so what else were you dishonest about in your profile. That is basically what OKC is in my age group. The same attention seekers that have been on the site for a decade now.
Either this or they fill any small gap in conversation instantly with a question about me. This gives me hope as well! Unfortunately, that means that we are the problem Or the ones where the person is a complete If you find yourself nodding your head, rest assured you are not alone. Often, not always the older you get the more negative experiences you accumulate and the sense of futility grows and grows. At some point, you might be getting ready to call it a day and simply give up on the rat race of dating.
I make very few guarantees, but as they say in advertising "I can virtually guarantee" there is someone out there for you.
Perhaps a diamond in the rough, an unexpected stranger, or dare I say it It might even be an old pair of shoes that with a good spit polish will dance you off into the sunset. Believe me, I write from much experience, not just as a life coach, but as a baby boomer that grew up and burned out on singles dances, vowing never to return. This was before the digital age dawned offering all sorts of new opportunities. Some of the happiest marriages I know of started via the Internet.
It really can work when the stars are aligned, you know what to look for and you put yourself in the right frame of mind. Although the instructions call for closing your eyes, feel free to keep them open Paper, pen, great music, favorite beverage and positive outlook. Wherever you are most relaxed. How is this going to happen? Everyone wants to give advice about finding Mr. Learn from your own experiences what works for you.
I understand that women are much much more materialistic so this is more important to them. However, I am in school. I do not make a lot of money right now.
I have more than enough to meet my needs. I am not homeless. My thoughts on the criminal record thing is valid. That one anecdote is one of many, and I am sure my experience with people is not unique. My uncle was the get-away drive in a failed bank robbery. He crashed in the attempted getaway and spent time in a hospital, and then some prison time. That was a long time ago. But the point is that after that, he woke up. Stopped thinking like an idiot kid and had a totally different outlook.
He built a very very nice home with his own hands out in the country where he lives with his wife of 40 years, and where he raised four kids, and where he now spends time with his grand kids. In short, he is a good man. A good man my aunt would have missed out on had she put any emphasis at all on what he did before he met her.
Now, I can agree that not all criminal records should be overlooked. It is information to take on board an assess, but just having a record should not be a deal breaker. I would want to examine what was on the record, and compare that to what I saw in her.
In short, I would be trying to figure out if her experience changed her for the better, or did she learn nothing. Also, how long is the record? Is it a long record or just a couple of incidents from her past, or one recent incident? And what is social justice? Imagine that…you try to help people and they steal from you. But they screw it up.
Just 2 to 3 days a week. Not enough to support him, his wife and daughter. Just 2 to 3 days a week would have given him enough along with his fast food job. Wanted us to keep helping him make the rent payment on the place we helped him get into.
Another guy walked in and did have good job skills. He was a tree surgeon. Big business here in Florida. We got him a job.
He showed up two hours late and drunk. Another guy we got a job working driving a cab. He liked it at first but then when he found out how this was going to affect his rent, he stopped. See, he was living in a place that rents rooms to single men and is based on income. Yes, twenty five dollars a month.
But with the money he would start making driving a cab, that was going to go up significantly. In short to make money you have to work, and work somewhat long hours on days where the business is good. Then you have to be smart with your money and put most of it away. But if you work at it, you make money over the whole month.
This whole idea of social justice is way off. Plus, they seemed to think they had all the answers and would refuse to listen to reasonable statements that did not align with what they believed. I think after reading some of the responses in this thread, that there are many good ideas being put forth. Way up, you know why? I met one for tea who looked at every woman who walked by our booth, no thank you! I am older, for an older man to connect, he needs to be motivated.
To be motivated, there has to be a connection. Rusty and despattor Yep, to a point I am a snob, I admit it fully. Yep, I am someone who worked her own way out of poverty, escaping a very abusive, alcoholic family, worked my way thru school, raised a brother at the same time.
All people need to understand themselves, what works for them and what does not, what may be potentially harmful. Look again at my list: My point was that due to past history, demographics, cultural values, not all places are amenable to finding someone. I also think trying to be something one is not, trying to espouse values not your own, willingly taking up with someone solely to avoid being alone at all costs, is a recipe for disaster. Another BTW; a friend here was shot by her stalker a few years back, avoiding some of these guys may save ones life.
Since a couple of disasters dating locals , I do not look for men here, my market is retired academics and similar folk that come here for races or to train. I fully understand that. The real problem is that this town has such a bad reputation in this state that folks assume we all are uneducated drug users and we are all tarred with the same brush.
Tell me how to figure that one out, eh? I get hit on by many guys when I was on line and IRL. It actually has been me choosing not to engage with guys that do not share my values and seem to be in search of a meal ticket, or approach me and I find they are already attached. I understand that as an overedumacated, brown, highly active older chick I am an odd duck in the eyes of many.
However, neither of you would take kindly to being told to be alone or settle for someone totally wrong for you. Most, if not all, of her requirements sound pretty crucial to me. A big liability of mine is number 7: I need to date more to figure things out. Whereas I would only be satisfied if the guy was very intelligent, had extremely good character, was financially okay, and had very good manners.
I myself am intelligent, have very good character I think! The ambitious folk left long ago, this town is the only place where very marginalized folk can afford to live for many miles.
A good deal of the population, particularly the older segment of such, is trapped. This town is an anomaly, true. It is notorious in the state. What I was trying to convey is that there are places where one really does need to give up on finding a rship until one can be in a position to get out. Wow, what u say is quite eye-opening to me. I feel sad for the disadvantaged pple there. It takes some effort of course. Yep, most western towns that exist because of past resource extraction are now very sad places.
The last three years, I literally spent thousands on on line sites. I found maybe a handful of men I was attracted to. All the women here, regardless of age, ethnicity, income, education, have had the same experience.
Because the cost of caring for my dad and the expense of upgrading my home to increase its resale value has gone waaay up, I cannot afford on line and the travel expenses this year. I learned a lot, got to discuss quantum physics with a dude from far away, have educated guys from all over the world on high altitude gardening and have become a staunch friend to a dude that was horribly wounded and will never be able to be in a relationship.
Since I found that the one man whom I was attracted to here, could talk to, respected greatly, was cheating the entire two years he pursued me, I have considered on line or dudes I meet while racing, my only options. Unless there is an infusion of much higher functioning older guys, I will not be looking close to home. It well could be that somehow, I will have to find a way out without loosing my shirt before I can ever be in a rship again.
In the meantime, I do my best and understand as to being confident, putting myself out there, truly being the person I want to attract, I have done everything I possibly could. Yep, I am a Liberal and proud of it. Yep, I have dated and have many friends that are Conservatives. No one tells me what to think or not think. Should I be OK with drug use, DUIs, men having restraining orders against them, men like the one you described trying to find a job for I do similar work, but more on the academic side?
How happy would we be then, eh? You call me selfish, why? Most of the working-class dudes here ask me, a smallish academic, for help with stuff like carpentry instead of a guy. I show up on time, tools and work gloves in hand, am sober and not high on weed, I learn quickly, work steadily till the job is done. That in my evil Liberal lil brain, is a work ethic. In academia, as you are a student, that means going to class, being prepared, fully engaged, rather than skipping class, hanging on the beach.
In the past, I have literally risked my life on the front lines facing very nasty folks with serious firearms so that much less well off folks could have justice and be safe. This is not the mark of a selfish person. No one owes us squat. Yep, I was very fortunate to have a husband that suited me extremely well and to this day I wish the circumstances of what lead to the breakup had never happened.
Yep, when one has a good relationship, settling for less is very difficult. Yep, educated men will marry high school dropouts. Their intellectual stimulation comes from outside the home and their role is provider.
Its very different when the tables are turned, especially when no kids are involved. I grew up in poverty, worked my way thru school, lived in homes without running water, battled breast cancer totally alone, wondered if I could feed myself.
I understand I am a weird animal, I am not looking for a clone of myself or my ex but am looking for an equal. However, being with someone with whom you have no connection with is also being alone, albeit with serious legal consequences.
Noquay-I am also a liberal. Some people said I should try dating conservative. No way, no thank you. I found a fellow liberal in fact every man I went out with was also liberal. Though I would encourage you to think outside of the confines of traditional higher ed. Many people do not graduate college, even less go on to get advanced degrees. I went from dating lawyers and Ph. He has a personal library of over books.
I never think to myself he is less educated than me. Even a carpenter can be well read and be able to hold his own in a conversation with you. True, in the old times, folk without access to education went to great lengths to self educate, self improve. Many of the old people back home were of this ilk.
I am widely criticised for gardening, reading, listening to NPR. None of the kinds of dudes you describe exist here, at least in the older age ranges. Then I see all the issues here and I wonder, wow, what are we doing? How did we get here? I liked this post — partly because it reassured me that I am in fact ready to go find the next love of my life. My last relationship was with a true blue narcissist, the kind that would be flattered if a woman committed suicide over him. My heart is soft, not hard.
Even this small hope hurts like hell, and I feel foolish for allowing myself to hope at all again. It was very pleasant, really. I had a short but very enjoyable relationship with a wonderful, attractive free spirited woman that ended recently. Having said that, we escalated things physically and I developed strong feelings for her.
It still was hard to get over the finality of it despite knowing her other guy was looking to move here and it was only a matter of time before they would reunite. I think that some men and women are simply destined to be alone.
My online dating experience has done nothing but confirm those beliefs. I initially did ok with online dating. Sent some e-mails and went on some dates and a few 2nd and 3rd dates that ended up going nowhere. I do cherish her friendship though. The not so well kept secret is that online dating is that the deck is horribly stacked up against guys. The online dating scene for most guys is a soul crushing experience of ignored messages and a sh load of work for very little payback.
Things can go from very good the first few dates to being completely ignored all of a sudden without ever knowing what went wrong. I cannot love this enough, as a newly 41 yr old never been married woman. My life has been full of the wrong choices in men and yes I take complete responsibility.
I was just hurt again today by someone I thought I loved but because we have different beliefs in spirituality he cannot be with me, even though we both have very strong feelings for each other. I will keep this letter close as my reminder.
I have been through a lot but have some how always kept some small piece of hope alive. This will help as well! I feel for you Kimberly. Just got out of a relationship with someone I care deeply about too but for different reasons. I think many people look down or pity people that have never been married at our age but they fail to realize why.
My last three dates made me feel like I was at home watching True Blood reruns. I am sick of dating! Yes I have read all the stuff in this post,but I feel it is no use!
I am 42 years old and sick of playing games!! Why do people assume that only women go through this? I wish I had lost hope on women earlier. Even now that I tell myself it is over after 40 it attacks you, especially when I see a cute girl pass by. However remember the bright side: Welcome your hobies and taking courses on what you like without being criticized.
Take vacations when it suits you.Find the screen in those tragically others. I outward that for me, insofar, chemistry is going that emotional connection, or a very highly spiritual of one or both of the others. A lot of the truth I densely do feel guilty narcissist up is I do relationship what a simple rship is thus it is very unworldly if not considered to talk one that is not.
