You've got two choices in life. Be bitter or be better. Life doesn't always go as planned so choose to be better! So suck it up, buttercup! I don't think one person who marries and a few years later when their whole life implodes ever expects it to happen. It's not fun. I find it interesting some men will write things like I can't believe it's come to this, etc.... Isn't that rather insulting to the thousands of other people who are online as well? Seems to me there are a lot of lonely people out here.Yet people lose interest quickly- always looking something better. We tend to think about our past and think things like "I will not settle, I will not cave, etc" There was time in previous relationships to learn about the other person--all the little silly things that are impossibly irresistible or the annoying habits that will grate on your last nerve! But we just don't have that kind of time and omg, it's so much effort! If we exchange a few bantering witty emails, then we should meet. I find that the longer the cat and mouse game goes on, the less chance we will ever meet in person. It's very tough to express in written word, add on top of that all the lol's and emoji's. Before you realize, you are just exhausted! So the grass is always greener...
I've met some very nice men and had some laughs but I've also met some not so nice men on line. No Bueno! I've had significant relationships in the past. But the past is over and done. Looking forward to someone new- the fabled best friend, partner in crime, red hot lover, butterflies in the tummy confidante! Alas, we have eluded each other due to time or circumstances. I am optimistic, more cautious but still starry eyed!
Let me list some of the negatives (Or positives?) I can be sarcastic sometimes. Clearly, I can not do selfies! I've been told I have a great smile/ laugh and that I'm cute by people, (not just my dad! Haha!) These are all pictures of what I really look like, day to day, some days are better, some days are worse!. Being honest, I am drawn to men who look younger than they are. Sorry! It's superficial, huh? People are always floored when I tell them I have adult children, so I'm looking for someone who won't be mistaken for my sugar daddy! LMAO! Seriously, working in a rehab hospital makes you really appreciate what you've got and how important health is. So,working at it everyday! As for hobbies- I like fishing, not hunting. I like to travel. I want to see a few things! Working on my master's degree, so a wee bit busy, but always make time for something fun! Life is too short. I like sports, but for different reasons- I make a bracket for March Madness just to see how I'll do! Love to go to sporting events, concerts, etc. Want to learn to golf-lessons once school is over. I am pretty social and will start random conversations with clerks, cashiers, etc. I make eye contact when passing people in hallways or elevators.This actually irks me when people don't! More of a dog person, not crazy about cats, I mean they're okay- But let's face it, they're just not as good as dogs! I don't care about your car, or your money or anything along those lines. Be happy in what you do and who you are at the end of the day! Just make me laugh so hard, tears stream down my face! I'll make it worth your while! ( wink, wink)
So, you've read all the way to the end? I'm impressed!
