DATING OVER 60Page 10 of 15    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15)
"I asked her several times why she didn't discuss her issues with her Mom, her sisters, her local friends"

>>either they were uncaring about her time of need....or sick of hearing the story for the umpteenth time....or they knew what role she played in things going south...or

"you were far enough away, considered safe, she could say things that would be held against her by someone she would meet".

like you said, it didn't cost you a dime, and maybe it helped her out, giving you karmic brownie points. win-win for everyone.

And yes, it never hurts when the date across the table is hot. life really is that simple. we suffer for something that brings us pleasure.


In my case, the only suffering came from trying to make sense of what her initial text said. She had her very own brand of shorthand. I would reply with a simple sentence to acknowledge that I saw what she wrote, then I would quickly shift things to talking about meeting up. As I've mentioned before, becoming a woman's text buddy is a bad idea for many reasons.

My friend Judas, he's hanging around here somewhere
Posted: 12/29/2017 1:32:02 PM

So even when your hot bro friend tries not to pick her up, she's still interested in him.

Well, it's not necessarily like that

True, there are exceptions to rules ..........on some humans, what can work is to give someone attention, and then pull it away.

I wouldn't call it an exception to a rule, but just as much as another rule coming into play, like that. Additionally, if your hot bro friend isn't trying to pick the gal up, there's not some trend that she's going to be deadlocked on him and only him anyway -- when again, she doesn't know him and he was never macking on her. I think the strong trend comes when he Was macking on her & she liked him (sans finding out he has a GF; that can kill it; but sometimes have no effect).

Limiting your hotter bro friends from macking on new gals you're socially engaging with his a big key -- As Long As said new gal(s) you like Are in your league. Now, if he's solidly out of her league and was just drunk flirting with her at some point, and ends up giving off the "sloppy playa" vibe as she's not the only one -- him doing so generally isn't going to result in a crush on him, if you're attractive to her and were "working" her in the same time-frame.

But phone chemistry is possible. There are phone conversations, and then there are phone conversations.

True, but many people -- women included -- understandably don't aim for that with people they never met in-real-life before, and it does require both parties to be truly up for it. In concept, I'm not, but I will happily do it for a limited time for a gal who lives a little further-than-normal away (but cute enough to give it a chase).

My partner and I met without a single phone conversation.

I think that's the common/mainstream way when it comes to online dating. Even met-at-event/bar-and-exchanged-#s, where there's some follow-up texts pretty much focused on if they're up to meet in person, if mutually available to in the near future.

I absolutely LOATHE talking on the phone. Constant signal break up and having to ask them to repeat themselves.

My phone signal's fine -- and I have a non-cell line if/when that'd rarely occur on my end. That said, I don't loathe talking on the phone when I have some time to... I loathe having Long Conversations on the phone that are Expected as the norm, or the semi-norm with frequent not-too-long ones. If we live in the same city, let's not pretend we live on the other side of the state + BF/GF - lol.

Norwegianguy's posting is the equivalent of my talking...

LOL -- and even I'm not a fan of that talking on the phone (sans rare occasion). :) I'm not a fan of lengthy text convos for the sake of having convo. Unless I'm laying in bed and can't get to sleep -- fvck that! But I like the concept of texting -- much smoother, and whether it be by text or phone, you're not trying to have some substantial conversation.

Anyone want to hear about my diaper date? No he wasn't wearing it cause he had to, he just wanted to surprise me by flashing me. I guess he thought it would excite me....it didn't!!
Never the less, I went on to date other normal men on fish. No complaints, I am 59 will be 60 in July, so I think I qualify. We old women like to date, and do everything just like when we were 50, and 40, it all depends on the person. The only difference is now I move slower and listen more. Great thread....love to hear from the others.

Atleast, at the bar you get yummy drinks, so it doesn't feel like a failure. I just can't trust myself with drinking and a room full of men. Doesn't mean I would sleep with all them, only one... Yeah now that I think about it, it may not be a very good idea.

Sussex, sure sounds like the guy had a fetish, and used that exposure as a way to expose you to it, to check out your reaction. I've seen a diaper wearing guy on POF. He didn't hide his fetish. I would not sign up to change his diaper💩

Sussex11, you need to learn how to quote. Or at least, tell us the message number that you are responding to, otherwise we don’t have a clue.

Yeah, you don't want to take them on all at once. One may end up having a diaper! Your odds increase! ;)

So, what was his deal? There are adults who simply have a diaper fetish without imagining themselves as babies, then there are those who do. Which was he??

As funny as it is to imagine adult baby syndrome, it's even funnier to witness in person. The first time I did was when I was a member of a local dungeon, and the guy showed up with a diaper, bottle, pacifier, teddy bear blanket, and his mistress who played the role of his mother. I was well aware I was in an atmosphere that was intended for acceptance and non-judgment of fetishes, but I couldn't contain myself.

I took it to just mean laughing out loud, literally, until I read your reply, and then … Yeah, could have been a lot of different things.

I have been places where very unusual behavior was acceptable, and everyone prided themselves on being non-judgemental. Some of the things I saw, I had to work very hard at keeping my composure. Sometimes the urge was to laugh, other times stare bug-eyed, and other times …

that diaper date was hilarious. what a turn off... do you pay your own way with these dates? I am afraid that men my age do not interest me for romantic material but I am heartened by the fact that men your age interested in dating you as most would go for the younger woman and feel entitled, to boot. lol!

I was thinking the same thing. I'm trying to figure out how she bypassed the 2/10 posts since the last 3 were very short. It can be bypassed if the posts are long enough.

Is it weird to date someone your own age? I am 64 and the woman I am currently dating is 64.

CBGB77 message 241 I'm glad you enjoyed my diaper date story. In reply to your comment. No, I never paid for my way on these dates (does that matter?). And, yes I don't purposely look for someone exactly my age...I prefer older men. I set my age preference for a couple of years older than my age. Age is really just a number tho, some young people act old, some older ones act young. So, it depends on the person. Hope your current situation works out well.

Sussex was there more to the diaper date? Did he ask you to bring a diaper bag with baby powder or God forbid, baby wipes? ☺

I eventually became desensitized to just about everything, but in another way, I had witnessed so much crazy shit that sometimes I would come home at 4am after being there, and try to find cartoons or something on television to reclaim a bit of innocence.

Witnessing adult baby syndrome was something else, though. Anyone who can endure that for the first time without laughing is something other than human.

I guess the weirdest thing I ever saw, a local night club / dive bar, a place that used to be “The Goth Hangout” in Houston.

Guy comes in , wearing a pair of dress shoes, a cod piece, and a dog collar. About my age, in his 60’s. A young woman, in her 20’s, has a dog leash attached to his collar. She leads him around the entire place (very big place), twice, then they leave. Every one notices, but does not stare. I’m trying like hell to keep my composure. No one else really seems to think it’s remarkable, at all.

I'm in my local casino one evening in the winter and see a tall, broad-shouldered guy, with off-the-shoulder length hair. He's walking in front of me in a trench coat. I see no pants below his coat, just rugged boots. I speed up to check it out. I casually get in front of him to take a peek He was rocking a kilt, and I mean rocking it. He was super hot! He made an impression on me, him and a guy squatting to take a crap in front of The Plaza Hotel in NYC. Then there was the prostitute standing in matching emerald green undies and high heels making a phone call at a telephone on the street in the city. I wondered where she kept her change

NYC subways used to be great for a daily dose of weird. I too, have seen weird stuff by people in their twenties, and people with the maturity level of a 20-something. Some were "certified", the rest wanted to be noticed the same way the rest of us want water--only when we really are thirsty. Pretending like it was normal to us, got under their skin, as if we were even cooler than they are, b/c we see their behavior daily.

somewhere in our lives, we've flapped our own freak flag. Of course, ours' may have not really been all that freaky, except in our minds.
