Christmas Dishes....Sit Down Dinner or Buffet Grazing
Posted: 12/17/2014 10:14:28 AM
That is just awesome Miss Molly and I think what Christmas is all about. Do what we can for those who aren't with us, and enjoy those who are. Wishing you and yours a very happy holiday...

Use graham crackers Charminc? OMG, thanks for posting this. I am about to do some baking up (am way behind this year), and totally forgot the cracker recipe. Now that I am reminded, I will use graham crackers as opposed to saltines. Thanks a bunch honey.

If a woman agrees to a FWB relationship ...
Posted: 11/27/2014 10:20:42 AM
Charmin and Maleman? I agree with what you both say. The man I am engaged to, I met here. Initially, we met for lunch and I thought he was my pen pal! lol...stranger things have happened as they say. Healthy, positive outlooks open doors where you least expect it.

If a woman agrees to a FWB relationship ...
Posted: 11/27/2014 10:13:55 AM

Moon,

1. I never specified the number of dates for any particular thing to happen, nor what any number of dates should be.
2. I have nothing against burgers, there's a place called Jackson Hole, Five Guys, 5 napkin burger (I could go on but I'm sure you get the point)........and all of my mommies and grannies here have duly warned not to get in a stranger's car, so the ride is out.
3. I have met individuals for tea, bubble tea and a chocolate waffle, doing a macaroon run, for drinks, a museum visit, an ice cream stroll, etc, I just don't happen to take their interest in me very seriously. But that's okay, because no matter what they do, over 60 dates later, my heart hasn't skipped a beat.
4. I rarely ever get dates? You must be looking at your mailbox, lol. I get messages daily and I experimented a lot during my first 1-1.5 years here, dated almost anyone whose message and presence I deemed appropriate, hence established a preference. Now, I rarely go on a date because I won't waste my time or theirs if I'm not really interested, like interested enough to forgo hanging out with my friends instead. My mindset is the only thing that changed, not the number of available people for me to choose from. I've even made it clear on my profile that I do not desire messages from certain populations as the nonsense continues to clutter by mailbox. Believe you me , if I had enough malice and free time, I'd go out every night with a new date. I once did 5 in a week for a month, but I started gaining weight, lol, so I stopped.


Dear Miss BV. I haven't the slightest idea why you would have thought my post was referring to your post or you personally. You comment about my not getting any emails was a cheap shot and not at all required. But hey, if that's the attitude you portray, then it is what it is! lol

The golden vajayjay! lol....I have to admit that some of what a couple of the fellows have written about women who think they sit on one do in fact exist. One in particular comes to mind. She said a man had to take her out for dinner 3 times. And not for something like "Hey, wanna go for a ride and a burger?" It had to be a nice restaurant, and of course he pays. Should he meet her dating criteria, then the lucky fellow would get to experience "Miss Golden". Suffice it to say....she very rarely, if ever, gets a date. To me that speaks volumes!

Jeebus H. on a raft! The immaturity shown by a couple of people here is mind boggling. All worked up over what someone posts on the internet? Really? Life doesn't offer you more? Sad, sad state of affairs if this is all you've got.

one night stand advice
Posted: 11/24/2014 10:31:16 AM
OP if you only wanted a one night stand, then why are you worried about if he comes back or not? If he does, that would be gravy as the connection and sex where good. I would be a bit careful though as you have stated you want more than a one nighter. He will come back for more as long as you keep it light without pressing him for anything further. Rarely do these types of meets work into long term. Not that I haven't seen it happen. Good luck to you hon.

How to build a relationship with a widower?
Posted: 11/20/2014 7:29:04 AM
I am engaged to a fellow that I met here. He lost his wife 5 years ago. He is mindful of mentioning her but she does creep into the conversation from time to time. Why shouldn't she? They spent 30 plus years together and she helped to make him the man he is today. I am me, she was who she was. Two separate and different individuals. I do not see her as a rival for his affection/attentions. As has been said, communication is key. The same way it would be in any other relationship. Heck, sometimes I actually encourage my man to chat about her. I get to know him better and sometimes we will have a laugh over some of his stories. If your man isn't ready for any type of live in situation, he is telling you something. Again, communication is key. You may not like the end result but then that will be for you to decide what you want to do about it. Good luck.

If a woman agrees to a FWB relationship ...
Posted: 11/13/2014 7:04:32 AM
I have to agree with Belle and Woman. For many years, I was single but did not remain celibate. However, I knew what the boundaries were and was comfortable with that. I used to think I had a man's brain in a woman's body as we are not supposed to be wired for relationships other than just physical contact. However, having said that, it did come to a point wherein having a fwb, fawk buddy, whatever one wishes to call it, was not making me happy anymore. Thus, I stopped dating entirely. Now I have found a wonderful fellow, and it was all by accident really. Thought he was simply a pen pal so to speak. Guess the whole point of my gibberish, is do what makes you happy. Never mind what others project.

I would tend to agree with you Super. Least that is always the way I have dealt with things. All this bunk about rules/regulations/expectations makes everything so complicated. Start out with no expectations and if it goes somewhere it was meant to. If it doesn't, move on.

perimenopause and sex

perimenopause and sex
Posted: 11/4/2014 6:44:10 AM
Deb, I think it would be wise to let this fellow go for now. He needs more than what you are/can offer. I do wish that you felt comfortable enough to share the why's for not having sex with him but? This speaks volumes. You are not comfortable enough to be able to share your reasons why the no sex. And in that case? No point in seeing him further. You either trust and share, or you don't.

When should a mature lady become more proactive?
Posted: 1/23/2014 11:05:01 AM
I don't think the OP suffers from low self esteem necessarily. She obviously likes this fellow and wants it to go further is all.

However, OP, I have now changed my mind on my initial post. I think this man is definately looking for sex, and nothing more. His lacking in the contact department, late calls, suggestions for going to his house.

You are a big girl. If you want to take the guy at face value and have a little fun without expecting more, hey go for it. Again, I re-iterate that I really do not think the guy is going to make relationship material. Good luck honey, whatever you decide

Posted: 1/20/2014 12:59:41 PM
From what you have just typed I think he is interested. Otherwise, he wouldn't have suggested the wine or meeting half way.

However, a day is but a blip on a man's radar darlin. I would wait maybe half a week or something. Men don't like to be pushed, least that is what my experience has been. If you are in contact the day after, asking him out, hmm....could indicate you are rushing/needy. Then again, I am no Anne Landers and am single at this age, so I think it's kinda like a dart game. Throw the dart and if it sticks, bingo!

Found old family Sugar Cookie Recipe
Posted: 1/7/2014 7:01:46 AM
Thanks for posting this one. I printed it off for future reference. I made some sugar cookies for Christmas and they were the nice chewy kind, not the actual crisp ones that most sugar cookies are. So this one, being a soft cookie recipe is of interest to me. As well? Easy peasy to make without a lot of fussing and that works just fine for this gal! lol

Is this normal behavior for over-45 men?
Posted: 12/5/2013 11:17:37 AM
Oh Miss Beach, please don't take offense. Most of the comments were to assist you with improving your profile. They meant no harm. The one fellow who asked you about posting a "stupid" question, shows his intelligence.

OT: I remember way back, more years than I care to count, the very first time I was sent a picture of a man's one eyed trouser snake. I was totally shocked!Just what kind of man would do such a thing I asked myself... Now, should I get them, it's like water off a ducks back. Seen one, seen em all. What makes that "one" attractive to me is the man that comes attached to it who is a true gentleman with class..

To Opp : These women will gut you like a fish , Things have really changed since you were younger , chance of finding a decent woman is very slim . Its all about instant chemistry and wallet size now


Wow, I know you have been told this before honey, but as long as you have this attitude, you won't get very far. A man with such a huge chip on his shoulders is not an attractive man to anyone. Why can't you simply take a woman at face value and go with that using your best judgement on how it is going? I think that is how most of us do it?

Molly, I remember when as a kid, my Mom would make white beans and pork hocks. God how I hated having to eat them. Now being older? I adore them. She puts in a bayleaf when she cooks them up. I try to duplicate it but I don't know....sometimes I think things taste better cuz Momma made it.

Posted: 8/29/2013 7:55:49 AM
Funny but most men I have dated never even ask the question? I think perhaps that comes with being the age I am at. At this point, we all know that there has been a sexual history on both parts. What matters most is the here and now far as I am concerned. I was actually a bit surprised at some of the comments here. Like no one has had a sexual past? Really....lol

I read a copy of the pending suit. Wow is all that I can say. After viewing it, I don't see it as racial, but more discriminatory. I have always loved Paula Deen however, from what I have read, on a personal basis, she is not a very nice lady and neither are her sons. It is about the overall treatment of human beings far as I am concerned. Having money doesn't make you better than others.

Why do Men of a Certain Age HATE Facebook?
Posted: 5/24/2013 6:37:50 PM
I don't know...any way that folks can connect in this day and age is ok with me. Far as being spammed, heck, we get spam mail at work on our regular email from time to time and they are always updating to try and keep that away. I am actually surprised at the ages of some folks who do use the available social networks. Folks in their 80's have adapted to this new age. Except one comes to mind...my mother who is 74 refused to even remember how to turn her puter on and off! lol

I use LinkedIn and it has been and is a great tool for business for a lot of reasons. Job searching, connections, being able to see who is employed where. Being in the sales industry it's always good to be kept in the loop of who is doing what where. Social networking for whatever reason is most definately on the rise.
