Blackwood85- Well, I just turned 47, I'm here right now, on a Saturday night, because I choose to be.
Next Saturday, who knows?
I might be out watching an Alabama game, I might be out playing pool, or listening to music, or I might choose to be here.
I see your posts and I see an intelligent young man with something to say and something to offer.
What can I NOT do? Make YOU see that.

I just moved 500 sq meters worth of stuff into an apartment of 527 sq feet.
There's no room for me.
This is a serious call to declutter.

My next rant will probably be about putting on a yard sale.
Or visiting the chiropractor.

I refused to turn both 30 and 50.
Did not celebrate, no party nothing.
When I turned 51 I had an "I'm not 50" party.

My sister goes overseas so is never in the country on her birthday so noone around her knows.

"I refused to turn both 30 and 50.

When you get right down to it, what is the reason to celebrate the aging process that's ongoing every second of your life-where every tick of the clock is one second less that you have in life? Turning 50 is no different than turning 51 years, 7 months. 8 days, 14 hours, 26 minutes, 35 seconds.

(Saturdays?) I've been building my own furniture. From basically scrap lumber and such. And a woodburner, sandpaper, and Tung oil...

...many Saturdays, I am working on that. Trying to make some progress. Soon, NFL football will threaten to slow the progress again. So no woman wants to share things like this creative journey with me. Too bad, so sad : (

Rant - today's piece didn't work out like it was supposed to!! Dagnabit! But it's alright. Not a disaster. Will still be pretty darned cool. And I'll be damned if I'm gonna start this one over or re-do any of it.

(Sunday morn, but still Saturday night. Today's games get a nap first. Go Vikings and Packers!)

So I turning 30 on Oct. 21st is it all downhill from there?

You want the truth or the lie well tell everyone else?

It gets worse too...after age 40 you become invisible to young pretty women....

Around age 45 you start sprouting hair were it never grew before.....the fist time I saw an ear hair I freaked out....WTF! grampa had hair bushes sticking out of his ears....EW!

After 50 unless you are very handsome and in good shape you become invisible to women in their early 40's....

If a pretty young women approaches you at a bar she is either an escort or setting you up to get robbed.

Plus SOME (note I said SOME LADIES....ladies) single women this age dont just come with just baggage....sometimes they come with baggage cars full of baggage....They are single for a reason!

I'll get back to you in ten years and let you know how bad turning 60 sucks.....LOL

I specifically said "SOME women" in some of the women I have met in the last 5 years....and you turn it into a personal attack against me?.......and where did I claim to be perfect?...I have some baggage...but it's a carry on luggage...not a steamer trunk or a loaded U HAUL....

You want a list of examples of some of the baggage I've seen?

Convict exes...convict children....ex convict stalkers...ex husband stalkers....had a lady's ex BF show up at my house at 2:30am for an asshoopin AND a trip to jail (was fun too).....seen women return to abusive they didnt know how to handle being treating well...met a wonderful pretty woman who was a perfect companion 90% of the time and a raging closet alcoholic slut the other she was trying to punish herself...I couldnt take worrying about her anymore...or responding to drunken booty calls after closing time on a tuesday and I have to be on the road by 6am or I'm late for work... then there was the beautiful 51 yr old I met who turned out to be a bunny boiler who flipped out when I didnt want to get married after 8 weeks and move to another state....she stalked me for weeks before giving up.....SHEW!

Met a married woman that wanted to cheat with Fing way....begone whore...

Now I dont mind taking a woman out for an evening my treat....but when "can I barrow a ten" turns into can you help me with my rent, cell phone, car payment, electric bill thats enough of that crap....I liked her very much we went out for 6 months and I asked her to move in and put her stuff in storage so I could save some money and she could live here rent free....she turned me down so I let her go...if I'm going to fully financially support a women I expect our relationship to at least be at the level of cohabitation.

And I were to start listing some of the stuff that has happened to my can toss in arson, burglery,criminal tresspass ,criminal damage, assault, stalking.....being borderline psycho is not specfic to gender.

In case you havent noticed you get older ...the dating pool gets alot shallower at this end, and it's got more turds in it.......The "keepers" are taken until they either get cheated on or widowed...and some of them never get close to a man again for fear of loss.....just like some men never remarry......hell some of the women I dated in highschool have passed away already...and you are 35 scoffing at me?

It's also funny becuase I dont even few you as a potential partner are far to young and immature...I dont care how my lard looks to you.....I care if a woman in my age bracket will be willing to put up with my lard and carry on bag....hopefully her carry on is about the same size and I like curvy women anyways.

My last good run with a woman lasted 31 years....I dare you to do better with any man you can find now.

And at least I have my picture up young lady.

I'm at home on a Saturday night alone on an internet forum, is this how my life will always be like? Am I just going to die alone?

Dude! Weren't you On Fire not too long ago??

You'll be on fire again soon enough :)

I used to say I don't want to die alone, but now I say I don't want to grow old alone.

Blackwood85- Well, I just turned 47, I'm here right now, on a Saturday night, because I choose to be.

So have I, and this ex sailor is still living it up.

Better to burn out then fade away.

Might not find the holy grail of love, but fvckin' A, I'm gonna have a blast searching for it.

How much money did I waste over the years on bad dating/relationship choices? Thousands!

Yep. Celibacy is definitely more cost effective.

It gets worse too...after age 40 you become invisible to young pretty women....

Meh. Most of those pretty young women aren't empty nesters or want kids. I'll pass on that.

The empty nesters I do meet are either not handling their menopause well or just want booty calls. Go figure.

A god forbid 'label'? No so quick mister!

They claim they can get sex anywhere so they're fussy as hell.

Sex is easier and labels not so much after 45.

Plus SOME (note I said SOME LADIES....ladies) single women this age dont just come with just baggage....sometimes they come with baggage cars full of baggage....They are single for a reason!

Baggage is all relative. I do chuckle when someone tells me they're baggage free yet don't have health or dental insurance, but that's another thread topic all together.

It's sad then folks start things off with a baggage comparison discussion. Kinda kills the chemistry.

What meds are you on?

What's your FICO score?

Are your parents well and if not, is someone taking care of them? (They don't want the hassle of being a caretaker)

Do you have a 401k?

Regarding psycho women, I've only met 1. She dangled the relationship carrot and wanted to see how far I'd go to keep her without even dating exclusively a bit. It was either all in (save her from work) or all out (non committal fun once in awhile until I vowed to save her from work).

Other then that, the only common theme I see dating after 45 is that while women claim they are invisible, they are also fussy as hell.

Like I said earlier, sex is easier and a label harder.

Finally, generally speaking, the gals that are truly self sufficient only need a man for one thing, and it ain't carrying groceries :)

Supes has a pretty cool man cave up North.

Not sure what the address is, but if he's reading these forums and Lois is out running errands, he might just hook you up.

(please just shoot me now)

How much money did I waste over the years on bad dating/relationship choices? Thousands!

Think how much maid service and escorts you could buy with that.....and still have money left over....and a clean house...and get laid when ever you want....

Yep. Celibacy is definitely more cost effective.

But way too boring.....I miss having a woman around all the time...miss the slap and tickle....sure as hell miss the sex....miss spooning on the couch watching lifetime crap I didnt want to watch......oddly....I even miss the fights sometimes........hell I'd still be happily married if it was up to me....but it aint up to me....

My Dad was a navy vet...and I remember crying to him over a girl who dumped me before I ever met the wife......he said when a guy got a dear john letter all his buddies would hustle him off to the nearest brothel and get him drunk so he wouldnt pop a cork and reminded the man even hung over as hell that he was still a man the morning......dont know if that's true or not but he grabbed his coat and took me to the nearest strip club and got me drunk as hell.....I dont remember much about that night but I sure wasnt thinking about that girl that dumped me anymore...I do remember the lap dance....

So If strippers and booze are good enough for upholding United States Navy moral then it's good enough for me.

: p

BTW I was playing pool and winning all last night talking to some hotties that were way too young anyways...but it was fun...eye candy is better than no candy...

Or you always try....."hey old is your mom? she single? she cute?"


"got any slutty older sisters?"

Navy vet here and I have witnessed way too many Dear John events. Sad.

Lubriderm and a bottle of Charles Shaw has kept me sane and solvent.

sealady111- My rant for today is one I've had for a LONG time based on some of the comments I read here, but today, I just can't hold it in anymore..................
What is UP with these people on here who are straight, but so obviously HATE the opposite sex?!
We have ALL had negative experiences in relationships, we react to it in different ways.
Rebounding, not smart, but ok, I can understand. Jaded, not the best way to be, but I get that too. Careful, after being hurt, that's actually pretty smart.
On one level, intellectually, I get it, I've studied psychology, but on a personal level, I can't relate.
ONE man hurt me, ONE man made me careful, he was not a good person, but he is NOT all men.
A part of me feels sorry for these types, another part of me wants to send them all to an island together and let them fight it out until there's one left and then sterilize the one left so they can't reproduce.
The idea of a woman that hates men raising a son, or a man who hates women raising a daughter scares the heck out of me.
Even if they don't reproduce, lord have mercy, what a MISERABLE existence.
Women that do this, STOP, every man that hurt you is NOT all men, men who do this, STOP, every woman that hurt you is NOT all women.
And if you think you are fooling anyone that you are anything but a butt hurt little ****, guess what, you are W-R-O-N-G.
Get over it, suck it up, or I have a ticket to an island for you and I will GLADLY see you off to it.
(apologies to the GOOD men and women here on POF, it's the rant thread and I feel MUCH better now)

Good to hear bamagrl that this RANT thread is helpful to you.

My rant of today.
My dating via POF has been underwhelming.
So I have signed up to a paid dating site again.
The last 5 men I have been talking to on there, including one I had a long typing chat with last night have had their profiles removed by the site.

There are good people in this world.
The 'bad' ones cause a lot of grief and make a lot of other people jaded.

I agree with you.
Individual people are individual people.
What type of island do you think we should choose for the haters in this world?

A tropical paradise?
Permafrost in the Arctic Circle?
Moruroa Atoll where the French were doing atomic testing?
An island that is only dry at low tide?

Three Mile Island is a great idea.
Save on electricity. Everything glows in the dark.

sealady111- Three mile island seems about right. :D

edit to add- I tried some of the paid sites to, VERY briefly, the paid sites are no better than the free sites, so I'll stick to the free ones.
