Well I gotta jump in on this one myself, I am 42 and a single father/mother of a 16 year old son. I had to get the courts to remove him from the mothers household due to domestic violence. Its been 6 years of raising him on my own. I have done this with one job, no family, and I have not missed one single school function, dr's.appoinment, or commitment to my son. In doing so, BOY I have I learned some wonderful and valuble lessons as well as knowledge. I will completely agree that the journey of the experiences and battles that I and my son have survived and made it through, have made me a far better person than the arrogance that I once coveted by my judging of people, and thinking that I knew it all. By "knowing it all" in my 20's and 30's I sure missed out on some sound advice. But I now find myself trying to give that same advice, but only to be ignored as I once ignored. It always amazes me how the circle completes itself in mysterious ways, but it does. So as I go on and forward, I may not have the full set of hair I once used to, or my once professional body that I had during my athletics, but I sure do have a sense of grounding, and happiness never experienced. I walk around today just having a blast, and thank god without the insecurity of thinking that I NEED SOMEBODY, whew, that was one of the best phases to get rid of for sure!!!!. So thanks for the thread, there are a lot of lessons that can be learned by us oldies or so my calls me.

I just turned 51 and I can ride a mountain bike (through wooded trails) for 10 miles. I only got the bike when I was 45. I also have the same interests/hobbies that date back to when I was a kid, mainly building/collecting plastic car model kits and tropical freshwater aquariums. But I realize now I won't meet anyone on Plenty of Fish because there are very few "fish" where I live and the one I have written to don't even bother to read the e-mail let alon reply to any.

Well thank you 'My' I appreciate your kind words. How is Mass these days, I spent some time in Worster, hmmmm is that correct?? anyways thanks again. It is very demanding but rewarding if you do it RIGHT!!. And I mean giving yourself appropriately to your child or children, you have to be so careful as not to kiss there little hinnys if ya know what I mean. But the return is amazing, my son is in High School, and I will be sitting here at work clanking away and I will decide to check my email. And low and behold, there is a message from wingedsprint jr that says "hey dad just thought I would tell you how much I love you". I cant tell you how many times that has happened. Ok enough of that, as you say time to get back to reading the whiny, mean, nasty, and proclaimed judgment of others on the other post boards.

Hello Paige, I can 100% agree with you that it is hard for anyone who does it on there own. I can tell you that when I meet people, man or woman in business, or during a phone call and it is disclosed that they are raising a child or children on there own, I always tell them right then and there how much I respect them. I can tell you that we definitely have the same scenerio in regards to ZERO family and ZERO friends. Friends that is, that could help me with my son, lets say when I have the flu real bad and need to get him to school. But I find a way to drag my behind out of bed and get him there. So I know where your coming from without having to go into to much detail. I wish you so much goodness and it will happen, it just does not look like it sometimes, but those of us sacrificing our daily lives to raise and be with these little loved ones will come back to us in big ways. I just know that God is watching and liking what I am doing. I sure know that the kids do!!!.

Have a wonderful day say hello when ever you want too.

I, too, was a single parent raising a child alone after getting out of the abusive relationship. I did very well, and now she is 21 and we have a very close, but healthy relationship. She is now married and gave me a grandchild! WOW! Is THAT ever fun!!!! People are always commenting on what a great job I did with her, so it was well worth it, even though during her teens, I questioned my sanity...it was rough. If you aren't there yet, this is your warning, but stick it out...it is well worth it!!!!

dceee, yep I know what you mean, I am defintely THERE as far as the teenage thing goes, but I have to tell ya, that as the adult you just have to sift out what is important to fight over. I know that I have discovered that if I really listen to his rederick of knowing it all, it really is mostly innocent in its demeanor. Now there are other times that the content of the discussion merits that I let him know REAL QUICK that I am the DAD and the ADULT and not to tread there. All in all my sanity is at check point 5 out of 10 so that means I am still functioning, Ha Ha!!!! but when I start to lose it i think I will put him up for sale just kidding. Have a great day!!!!!!!!!oh and congrats on your grandchild.

Just thought I would pop in here and ask a question...If you are 62, what are you going to do next year? I agree that over 30 might be a defining line (or age), but limiting your life at 62 leaves a lot of us out in the cold. ( I know, "start your own thread for much older people". Problem is I prefer younger people.) I am a 30 year old trapped in a 70 year old body. Anyway,... I'm still living life to the fullest and hope all you over 62 are doing the same. Cheers....

Thanks, wingedsprint, I know what you mean...

Don't get me wrong, I kept the control...it just wasn't easy, as I was going through menopause at the same time! Let's just say I'm glad it is behind me. I felt like 'all of a sudden' I wasn't able to get through to her...I'm sure my changes were difficult for her, too. Most of our problems had to do with her ditching school,and wanting to quit, and I was determined that she was going to graduate!! Now I ask her how she is going to handle it if her son decides that he wants to quit at that age...she says, "I'm going to do the same thing you did!!" (That tells me that I did SOMETHING right!!)

Well, Reb, you've certainly kept your sense of humor...Welcome aboard! I read your profile, and I really respect you for what you are doing for your wife/ex, whatever you want to call her. You sound like a really great guy, and honest...which should get you way ahead of some others....can't beat those traits..

Just because we are aging some and maturing much, does not mean that we need to feel old at all. If you work at keeping yourself in shape, eating healthy, listening to your body and its needs, there is no reason that you can not do things you did many years ago....

Life will give us many obstacles over the years, and we will have the choice of doing the best we can with it or giving in and letting it do the best to us. As we "baby boomers" mature, we are demanding that we age with the same attitude we used back in the 60's and 70's for all the revolutions we manifested to reality.

I may not be as strong as I was when 25 or 30, or as nimble, but I am better at most things and my maturity and experience has helped me be even more in many ways compared to when I was much younger. Using your brain and experience can make up and surpass what youth offered you in many many situations.

Good luck to all of us "mature" individuals, and I look forward to meeting you along the highway of life.......in the "fast lane"......

Just my opinion...

....Dceeeee, when you were reading my profile, was there anything in it that screamed "Ugly but Stupid, Pathetic, Desperate American Green Card Donor" to you?


No Reb, I saw nothing of the sort...maybe the fact that you said 'soft hearted'??..but I hope not. Maybe lots of guys get those kind of emails? You could start a thread and ask, if you are curious.


Since you're a 'virgin' on POF, people add themselves to the 'fave list'...
Maybe you know that already!?


200 times??? I don't think so....at least I don't THINK anyone could do that! (I should never say never...but I wouldn't think so...)

...56 on Tuesday! It seems soooooo old as a number, but my insides are still 20 something! I DO agree with the poster who said that at our age we "refine sex!" I had my first multiple at 52!! (Use to think it was a fantasy or an exaggeration.) In my opinion, sex gets better and better...unfortunately, I'm not getting any right now! LOL

I think the best thing about being single at this age is the freedom to do whatever I want. My kids are grown, I can retire in 2007 and the future is filled with endless possibilities. After finding the courage to divorce, going back to get a graduate degree, learning to speak French, and how to take care of electric, plumbing, and other simple home owner type projects I keep hearing Helen Reddy's voice singing,"I am Woman, Hear me ROAR!!!" I've proven to myself that I don't NEED a man...I'd just like to find someone special to share things with. It's a choice, not a necessity.

I guess I'm surprised (and probably shouldn't be) by the number of 20 somethings on here.
Is it the result of growing up with computers, pdas, cell phones, video games, etc. - a sign of the times? I guess I just want to say - gee kids - go out, enjoy, make a few mistakes, the world's an empty canvas - you're the brush, other people are the paint, have some fun.

I'm 44 years old and ever since I was 18 I prefered older women and now I'm in that age group I haven't changed my mind.I always say that I prefer women to girls and the best thing about an 18 year old is her 40 year old mother.I may be older and take a little longer to get around to it but its more fun when it happens and older women are more appreciative and not in such a big hurry.I dont need the little blue pill just yet and as long as there are sexy women over 40 I dont think I ever will.

Single means single ... means no wife .. no girlfriend ... and emotionally available.

saying divorced or separated ... leaves the impression that there are still some emotional wrinkles in there ...

@ Petunia

Frankly, I shouldn't even be a part of this discussion, because I find online dating; none productive, something that resembles job hunting for men or recruitment process for women.

I also know my ego would not be able to handle a read/delete and I have also found out that I am old fashioned in the sense that I want to just hit it off and see things goes. Something that is not possible that easily via email and public profiles on a website.

However, I am a marketing professional and I know impressions. People have to be careful what image they project in order to attract the right demographic.
