As the first guy, I will chime in...
You gals are not kidding. OLD is crazy. I am 46, and I get a 56 white hair aging girl who sends a flirt. Now, I know that sounds harsh, but is that all I am attracting? I am sure she is a lovely lady, but I am not dating someone that looks like my mom. I am looking for a girl in my age group. I do have to be attracted to her. Believe me, if am NOT looking for Sandra Bullock. Fun, morals, you think adultery is bad, and pretty, let try it. I am not going to settle because I hate to be alone. One girl, we were on a chat. I mentioned I don't do premarital sex, she belittled me. I didn't expect her to understand, but to go off on me. I didn't preach it at all. Just said I don't.
And while I got your attention, what is with it saying 'I am independent' in the profile, yet they want a serious relationship or married. What does that mean? I am not a hat you put on when you feel like it, or it's sunny. "Hi, wanna go do something?" "Sorry, I am feeling independent. FriendZone for you..." Maybe I don't understand the meaning.
One more thing (for this tanjent ride). I see a lot of late 30s/40s who are not married, and they are good looking. Why did you not get married? Crazy? Weird? And, if we dated, how set are you in your ways?
I read a girl say if the guy did not have kids, she would not date him. Well, that is a toss up. I understand her point where she said if you don't have kids, you will not understand what she has to go through to keep the family running. But on the flipside, there could have been medical reasons on him or her, which is not uncommon.
My motto is while dating, I am not going to rush anything, but I am not going to stop it either. It is working good so far.
By the way, I do have a date with a fellow SIer tomorrow night...
You're an interesting species, an interesting mix. You're capable of such beautiful dreams and such horrible nightmares. You feel so lost, so cut off, so alone, only you're not. See, in all our searching, the only thing we've found that makes the emptiness bearable is each other. - Contact
