I hope the new relationship you have hasn't gone south.

Finding a life partner is hard because the person looking can be their own worst enemy.

Once a person finds themself, finding like minded people becomes very easy.

When I was a mere "lurker" I did notice few who seemed genuinely happy for you, CBGB. I also noticed a group of dour sour old grapes trying to pour vinagrette on your rainbow :0(

I for one am very happy for you!

Thanks! I thought some forum members could relate to this quote:

"Some people are introverts, or socially anxious, or have experienced rejection or disapproval for things they can’t control (e.g., a disability, having children). They may just not like getting coffee with strangers. Maybe they find coffeehouses boring"

Finding a Life Partner Isn’t That Simple


NOW you tell me???!!!

(like I hadn't figured that out after 61 years on this planet)


have experienced rejection or disapproval for things they can’t control (e.g., a disability, having children).


Having children is something they can't control? They just appear out of nowhere?


have experienced rejection or disapproval for things they can’t control (e.g., a disability, having children).


And some have even experienced rejection or disapproval for things they CAN and DID control.
Like not having a photo on some random dating site.
Or not engaging in a lifetime of self-destructive behavior , AKA making better decisions.


Maybe they find coffeehouses boring"


Most are, unless you have entertaining company.
There used to be a local coffeehouse chain here in SoCal, that featured great live entertainment at their locations, but they overextended themselves and got into financial trouble, and ended up selling out to Starbucks. And that was that.
