frugal meals for penniless
Posted: 2/27/2012 1:56:14 PM
The Chinese are the most frugal and would eat all parts of the animal.

Liver, kidney , offals.. are all edible protein and cheap . However, they are acquired taste.
Cut them into thin slivers/slices, stir fry with oil, garlic and ginger slices or strips, o flavoured with soy sauce and sesame oil, garnished with chopped spring onions. Make a nice quick meal with rice.

Also try fish head curry. Fishmongers in the west mostly throw them away, or you pay very little for them. They cook well as curry with tomatoes and onions..or make a rich stock with ginger, onions, lemon juice, tomatoes, chillie..
I once entertain 8 people to a curry fish head dinner all for less than £1.

Older Woman Younger Man

(The only...ONLY...thing that a 50ish year old has in common with a 20ish or 30ish year old is sex. Not many people in their right mind would want a LTR with someone twice or thrice their age.)

Good catch77.. I beg to differ. I personally know several couples who have age gaps of almost 20 years, who are happily married. As long as they find common grounds that are compatible , there is no reason why such marriages cannot work. The Spring-autumn relationship allows for them to compliment each other, whether it is based on financial, emotional , sexual or spiritual needs, love can sure be found in unexpected permutations.
Let us not be so cynical or judgemental.
Marriage is indeed the public announcement of a private intention. Whatever the age difference, we should all celebrate the fact that they have found love and happiness, and that is all that matters is it not?

Mae West:' It is not the man in my life that matters but the life in my man'..

At any age...if we don't have the passion and lust for life..we might as well be dead.
I don't see the need to box anyone by age. ..after all we all exit in one.

Just curious, if older women who go for younger men are 'cougars'
what do we call older men who go for young babes?
HUgh GAFner?
DOM-Dirty Old Man
DOG- Desperate Old Gloat
VC- Viagra Consumer
George Gooney
....any creative suggestions?

Friends of the opposite sex?
Posted: 2/21/2012 11:33:14 PM
Accept that there is no exclusivity even in the best of marriages., less so in any other relationship. I am counsel to so many female friends and even a couple of male buddies who lost their spouse to others after strong 20 year marriages... such a sense of betrayal that it is a wonder if anyone could even believe in the institution of marriage anymore.

Human beings are multi-faceted. Given half a chance,like animals, we are not expected to be monogamous.. for the sake of procreation if nothing else, that sex is a procreative reproduction process...little to do with love and exclusivity. Love too takes on a gamut of interpretation.

Trust- is not necessarily easy to follow and abide for most men and even women.. Curiosity is the first step towards temptation and yielding to it is almost err is human and oh so claimed Mae West..the femme fatale of the 40s.

IN this day and age of internet dating, exclusivity is an extinct premise.
I often laugh when they claim here that they are 'one man woman' or 'one woman man'..not being cynical, just pragmatic.
the very fact that one cruises around here and check on profiles, means that we are not that exclusive.. and cannot expect exclusivity from anyone..a fact that cannot be denied. Would be hypocritical if we did.
We cannot expect our lover, our soul mate to live a monk's life with only single sex friends and Me..the only exclusive one he /she should be with. It would be masochistic.
Might as well be a monk /nun and live in a reclusive cell.

The gamble we take in relationships when it becomes serious, is exactly that, we are not afraid of being hurt.. because love is all that, agony and ecstasy.. it is taking that first step to pain and pleasure. LOve should be free and not to who he/she should meet or give up.. it is not who he/she meets in our absence, it is how he/she will remember us in our absence..
IF we are confident that he/she will love you unconditionally (that is a loaded word that needs another debate) , then expect the unexpected..that is love's mysterious adventure.

Almost 50,salt and pepper hair, wrinkles.Passed my best!
Posted: 2/20/2012 8:55:50 AM
Like Mae West said:' It is not the man in my life that matters but the life in my man.'
If you are worried about being 50 with wrinkles and all , then go for women who are older than you..but still look good and younger than you...or one who has more wrinkles and grey hair than you.

If you don't love yourself , you cannot expect anyone to do the same.

It is your attitude to life that is far more important. Men can get away looking distinguished with greying temples or even bald and wrinkled. But women have to work harder to look good because men are just more visually stimulated while women look beyond men's looks.
Confidence, ability to flirt and charm women are skills that go further to impress than just looks alone.

Thanks to my good genes, all my adult life I have been a victim of ageism.
Born with a baby face that does not age, I have had to work very hard to be validated as a professional because my clients, bosses and colleagues often thought I looked 'too young' for the job.

Indeed , I have been accused of posting photos taken 10 years ago; or I have touched up my photo or that I have undergone plastic surgery..when I post here as 48 , never mind 58..Yes, I am a proud 58 year-old trapped in a 30 year-old body. It is tedious having to constantly explain that you are much older than you look..and given half a chance I would rather put myself down as 'AGELESS' if this site allows for creativity.

Indeed, I have posted myself as 80 with a picture of an old Chinese lady here, but lo and behold, I got even more male mail because they thought I was just being cheeky if not satirical.

In fact, I note with interest that you yourself have stated in your profile that you find that you have little in common with many women in your age range...welcome to the protest club..I am a rebel and refuse to be boxed by my age range too..

I hang out with people from 14 to 74 , in my skate crowd and my toastmasters club.
To me what is relevant is not chronological age but common interests that could nurture rapport and relationship.

So what is relevant?
Unless we are vintage wine, car, antique or fossil , age would probably add premium and affect the price, otherwise, age means we are nearer the end of our journey...
so why let age box us in, since we will eventually exit in one.

I believe in living my shoe size which will forever be UK34 or US5 , both compatible for lots of fun and frolic..:)

[Who cares? If you really have that attitude, then put your real age. You'll attract other people who don't care.]

My dilemma is all my life I have had to convince people that I am really older than I look.
I often have to convince custom officers that I am really the age declared in my passport and that is really annoying.

I have posted my real age once with my photo here and I get men writing to me accusing me of posting an old photo of myself when it was a recent one.

SO check my profile , I have posted my recent photos , guess my age then.

I prefer to live my shoesize, forever UK34 or US5...
age is just a number..I am really 99 some days and 58 on other days..but most times I prefer the child in me. really I enjoy most being 5...

I hang out with people half my age and find those in my age range rather sedate and truly over the hill in both mental and physical attitude..

I am really 58 going on 25...or am I..? who cares.

The Virgin Learning Curve/Losing Virginity
Posted: 12/9/2011 12:11:52 PM
My son was tormented by virginity , morality , his sexual needs and religious convictions...anyway, he died two months ago at 23, probably still a virgin..killed himself jumping onto a train track. As his mother, I am devastated that his life has been cut short.

Moral of the is living and experiencing the different stages of our development. At 18, it is tough for a young man who has to deal with this physical and emotional need amongst peers who will put pressure on you to perform ...but be brave and make your own to who , when, why and how you wish to share this phenomenal experience tell or not to tell her that you are a virgin is also your choice..perhaps she too may be a virgin, which would be nice , so you could both cherish this first experience and learn from it.

As to urges, we all have them, divert your energies to other consuming may be the healthier option and one where you might meet the right girl eventually. After all,sex make up such a small percentage of our life that we tend to over rate it and under rate the reasons that underpin the act...Just as sex is pleasure, it comes with huge responsibility too..a few minutes of ecstasy could bring you some painful consequences that could be a think before you leap into bed.

Relationships come with great responsibility... even when we break up.
Friendship is the basic craft we all sail together to different destinations and as ship mates, we learn how to get on , survive the journey ..and in the end it is the memory of the journey that we do not forget.
Friendship therefore outlast and outlive even the most intimate of relationship..even marriage.
How we wish to remember , to treasure memories of that journey is really up to us..
Life is that journey and we cannot determine the destination but we could all make that journey more memorable.

Are there any lawyers or doctors on this site?
Posted: 12/3/2011 2:52:41 PM
I am a lawyer and met a two lawyers here . I met up with one in LA and we are great friends and the other I hope to meet one day and we are pen pals..

I think lawyers recognise each other in the way we think and express ourselves. We are no different from any other profession where we handle sensitive client information and are duty bound to privacy rules.
