Beauty Secrets for those over the age of 50
Posted: 12/27/2010 8:21:54 PM
I use less cosmetics and a lot more smiles, which are natural and easy to come by.
And Ping, you are not the least bit ugly, in fact, you are easy on the eyes.

5 years, 1 meet. Time for a profile review?
Posted: 12/17/2010 1:13:15 AM
Your profile says you are not interested in any type of relationship or commitment.
What are you complaining about? I wondering why you even had one meet.

wat if she lied about age....... do you continue anyway?
Posted: 12/6/2010 11:34:15 PM
The age reduction thing that goes on around here has been the most stunning event I have encountered. I was out of the game for 30 years so, just when did men start altering their age?
The first thing that comes to mind when I entertain the thought is "how would I explain my children?". I would rather someone think I was too old for them, before pretending I gave birth to my children when I was age 12 and 14.
Some people can get over it, some just lose respect and move on.

anyone ever taken so long to get over someone?
Posted: 12/6/2010 11:14:20 PM
OP, take note of all the people who have suffered your pain and lived to tell the tale. This is the most honest thread I have read on POF. I am surprised that even some of the hard core "get over it" fish have let their own heart bleed a little here. Just goes to prove how common it is and that what your experiencing is not a figment of your imagination.
I like the puppy suggestion. Get one that will grow big and strong, so you can take it out on your runs. The ex BF will always hold a little flame in your heart but someone is going to come along and light a torch.
One day, you too, will be telling the tale. I have my own BTW.

What does it mean?
Posted: 12/6/2010 10:41:07 PM
Rejection. According to a recent UCLA Psychology Dept study, it is one of our most painful human experiences. Really sucks.
Perhaps one sure cure is, stop looking back and start looking forward, for the one who is looking for you. And it ain't her baby.
Of course it is not as easy as it sounds but the alternative is, growing old, expecting that zebra to change her colors.

Anger in a relationship, or in life in general...
Posted: 12/6/2010 10:18:04 PM
Usually anger comes from fear, particularly when safety is threatened.

Call me an idiot too, as I totally agree with WIB.
Understanding that concept helps, tremendously, in confrontational situations.

I haven't gotten truly angry in a long time. Could be that I haven't been frightened in a long time. Or it might be that, over the years, I have learned anger and bitterness suck the life out of me and try to avoid them like the plaque. I put that beast to bed. However, if I sense that I, or any of those close to me, is in physical danger, it is hackles up and claws out. Primal response!
So many wonderful things come with age, like realizing you don't have to partake in someone's irrational anger, bitterness, pity party or negativity. The way I deal with folks like these is Not For Long

ED over 45
Posted: 7/14/2010 11:24:29 PM
I am by far not an expert on ED medications but in my limited experience they seem to bring the man's sexual abilities somewhere close to what he had before being afflicted with ED. There does not seem to be a grander experience and there should not be a prolonged erection post ejaculation.
There are many men facing ED issues and they can be emotionally devastating. I believe the best approach is to form relationships with mature, emotionally healthy people and have a discussion with your partner as soon as the relationship starts to lean becoming sexual. Weed out early on, anyone who finds the ED situation a deal breaker. You will not miss them.

Do you ever take a perverse delight in your own disgustingness to younger generations?
Posted: 6/1/2010 10:28:56 PM
All my life I have been in awe and amused by the way "older women" had earned the right to blatantly say what was on their minds. Now that I have a grip of grandbabies crawling all over me I have decided I am now in that category. I tell you it is a liberating experience. What do my children and young co-workers like about it? They get the same kick out of it that I did, they find it funny.
I will have to google the tea bagging it thing as I have no clue what it means.
My roots are from the deep south, New Orleans to be exact. I just spent 2 weeks there and was offered "sweet tea" several times but, I am no so Californiaized I could not bring myself to accept. Damn, I wish I had.

Loneliest Single Seniors To Come.
Posted: 5/17/2010 11:49:29 PM
This is my plan. I do see my self in an old folks home, but it will be more like a commune, somewhere in Northern California. The men will wear jeans and tie died T Shirts the women, gauze peasant tops. I of course will be the nurse, passing out "herbal medications and brownies". Hanging with my Homeys and flirting with old sailors.
We will be self supporting, and stay active by growing organic crops.
I, being open hearted woman, will even serve raw brownie batter to my stickly raw food eaters.
I encounter fantastic folks in their 80's and 90's all the time. My own father is 88 and children flock around him to hear his stories.

My beloved only brother died unexpectedly last Friday. Life is precious and fragile and made to be lived....Love , live, and live to love. Loneliness will not stand a chance.

P.S. for those of you who may read this and think I am some left wing nut liberal, you are dead on wrong. My American Heritage goes back to before the Revolutionary War. No I am not a left winger nor a right winger, I stand firmly on the right to be an ALL American Humdinger.

Lonliest Single Seniors To Come.
Posted: 5/12/2010 4:40:18 PM
I am not sure why the OP thinks we will be the loneliest seniors. Thinking back over the generations my grandmother's all out lived their husbands by at least a decade and none of them remarried or died lonely.
I have no intrest in coaching a man to take care of himself, go to the doctor, take his pills etc.....unless I am being paid by the hour. Men and women who are naturally inclined to not take care of themselves, are free to die a, natural, early, death.
Our generation has the Internet. We can be sitting in our rocking chairs Skyping away with our friends in foreign lands. Lonely is as lonely does.

When is it appropriate to compliment a woman?
Posted: 5/5/2010 11:18:28 PM
Charm School lesson #1, compliments and gifts should always be received graciously, followed by a gratuitous phrase, such as, Thank you, What a nice thing to say, How kind of you........many ways of saying thank you. I personally like to know if a man is attracted to me. Sorts out the friends to possibly more, list.

First time parent at 45+
Posted: 4/20/2010 10:11:06 PM
Until the advent of reliable birth control methods , women all over the world had babies well in to their 40's and more times than not, the father was older than the mother.
"69 year old horndog" the name calling seems a bit mean natured to me and what is wrong with a man making love with his significant other at any age.
If a man and woman desire children and can provide a loving and nurturing home for them, what does age really matter. There is a lot of talk about how old the father will be when the kid is 20 and how he will look like the grandfather but I read nothing that suggested, having a great father for 20 years is far better than having a bad one for 50.
Live and let live. It is a personal choice.

Cali to vote on legalizing and taxing marijuana in November
Posted: 4/16/2010 10:13:35 PM
Have any of you researched why marijuana became illegal to begin with? I think you would find it very intresting. It had nothing to do with addiction, dependence or any other health issues. I have always felt alcohol consumption posed a greater risk to health. I will not be smoking it, but I will vote yes.

There is a quote that goes something to this effect "It is not evil men that I fear, it is when good men no longer stand against evil, that I am afraid". In my mind it is goes for men and women.
We need to find ways to make changes. My American heritage goes back over 200 year
s. My own family history has taught me that this country did not become the best in the world by just talking. It takes action.
I personally have chosen to take issue with any further forms of waste, that comes my way, in the hospital. I dare to ask the question, Why, to the people who make stupid decisions. And as soon as I can find my way to whom ever is making the decisions for the California Prison Healthcare System, I will persistently and loudly ask them why.
Perhaps if we could get back to the "United we Stand..." we might be able to slow down the velocity of Our fall.

Why does the guy always have to initiate the date and relationship? or at least most of the time?
Posted: 4/6/2010 9:32:06 PM
I have my profile hidden. You can only find me in the forums these days. That being said, I no problem contacting men that attract my attention. With the advent of Internet dating I think the social mores of conventional dating have become passe. This is an open market and not just for potential dating, there are some people who are just fun to converse with.
The one thing I have learned is to not take this too serious, until things become serious. It makes life so much lighter and enjoyable.

Golf,
We do not have to wait for the future healthcare." Women who are trapped in a Man's body" continue to get their daily dose of female hormones, while doing their time in the Male prison. And, if they were in the middle of their sex change process when sentenced, the state must finish the process. I know this sounds too outrageous to be true, yet it is.
I worked in an ER which serviced the community and the nearby Prisons. I had patients on ventilators in the ER for days because the entire ICU was occupied with prisoners, 90% dying from hepatitis and AIDS, derived from drug and alcohol abuse.
Just a little old fashioned common sense is what we need here.

Their intention is usually not to injure themselves....and it only cost the state around 20,000 each time. Remember you have to pay round the clock for the 2 guards per each prisoner in the hospital and it is 2 car transport from the prison to the hospital. One non armed van, followed by an armed car.
I paid 1,600 for my daughter's root canal last week. She was laid off and now has no insurance. Dental care is free in the prison system.
20,000 would buy a lot of education, but making someone improve themselves is a civil rights violation.

I am a Registered Nurse. I can not even begin to debate politics with you guys. But the things I see on a day to day basis would blow most of your minds. The incredible waste of healthcare resources, the stupidity and corruption would make your heads spin.
Do you know that the California Prison System only dispenses name brand drugs? No generics for criminals in California. I and everyone I know gets generics, as that is all our insurance will pay for. Do you have any idea how much money would be saved if they used generic drugs?
This is just the tip of the iceberg. I could go in to the number of surgeries we do for removal of foreign abjects, from rectums and penises (self inflicted) but that might throw some of you over the edge.

Is red hot romance possible after 50?
Posted: 4/2/2010 5:00:37 PM
23 pages of YES. But since I am here I will throw in my Yes too. What a surprise it was to me, that at 52 and the grandmother of 4, I still have romantic and sensual desires abundantly.
OP you mentioned that the women you have been dating seem to lack sentiment and romantic personalities. Do you let then know you are attracked and desirous of them? This can be done without being crude or too forward. Most women wait for the man to make the first move. It is part of our old school training.

ED over 45

Cat, sounds like Deacon has just made you a grand proposition. I hope he is gentleman and does not make you sleep on the wet side of the bed. A cucumber never makes a woman do that. .... Old joke, I couldn't help myself.
Steroid free body building and work outs are great, however pro body builders have the greatest percentage of ED per population. They also grow breast. I do a little extra work for a plastic surgeon and we are removing man boobs all the time. I was so naive my son had to tell me what was causing the affliction.

Jumping through windows of opportunity and rarely denying myself the pleasure of getting to know someone, have kept my life full. Very very interesting as well.

Erectile Dysfunction

I have been reading this thread for a couple of days and am glad to see it is taking a softer side. Good golly all the blame throwing and gender bashing. Even the seals were not safe. It had never occurred to me that a man would blame me for his ED nor would I totally eliminate anyone from the pool, based solely on an ED issue. The term "there is more than one way to skin a cat comes to mind". ( No reference to you Cats Meow)

I have never given it much credit or thought for that matter. From time to time I have read a few people's palms. I tell them wonderful and uplifting things which always brings a smile to their face and for a little while, it makes them happy. Really, what does qualify one as a palm reader anyway. I never claim to be an authentic psychic or charge money. There are times when people just need to hear something positive.

Federal health care
Posted: 3/18/2010 10:54:12 PM
I am not in the know enough to enter into the political discussions that have been abundant in this thread. I am however very much in the know about what goes on daily in a large California Hospital, as I have been working as an RN in one for 20 years.
There is so much I could say but I choose to just mention one outrageous burden on the California health care system. Every person who is incarcerated in California has full medical benefits. This is big money for the hospitals. Most of these prisoners have life style acquired chronic diseases and then of course there is the never ending life threatening wounds from prison violence.
When they bring a prisoner to the hospital each one has 2 correctional officers with them at all times. The ERs are full of prisoners and sometimes the ICUs will have a prisoner in every bed. All are given full life support until every form of medical treatment has failed and they die. It is not unusual for one of these patients to be in the ICU for more than 3 months. Now remember, during that time, each one has 2 officers sitting outside or inside their room 24/7 and at least half of that time the officers are being paid over time. They do absolutely nothing but sit unless a healthcare provider is in the patients room, then they get up and stand by the patient. Keep in mind these patients are usually on a ventilator, heavily sedated or in a coma.

There is also a whole floor dedicated for guarded care. When the hospital beds are full the regular folks sometimes spend days in the ER on a gurney. I have seen as many as 6 people on ventilators in the ER because the ICU is full of prisoners. I am only painting half the picture.

For the guy who said "tell me one person who has died from being denied healthcare in the US" I could name many but will just tell you about the one I will never forget. She was 2 years old and sick with a respiratory illness. Her mother took her to the emergency departments at 3 different hospitals. The child should have been admitted but there were no beds available. Had she been admitted and given IV antibiotics and hydration, I would not have had to wrap her in a warm blanket and given her lifeless body to her mother to rock for awhile, before we took her to the morgue. YES people do die in America from lack of healthcare and in case you didn't know it California is the number one state for healthcare shortages. Unless of course, if you happen to be in prison.

I relate well with people of all ages. They all have their own special wisdom. I prefer to date men my age or older. I have age blocks in my profile that exclude much younger men.
I am not the least bit stuck in a rut. And the truth be known the most passionate, exciting and fun men I have dated were in their early 60's. They had vast wisdom and experience. Both possessed an extremely youthful approaches to life.
Grandma's and Grandpa's just ain't what they used to be.

Smooth Face or Slim Body?
Posted: 3/3/2010 9:51:40 PM
All that debate about MM, her weight, height , measurements, and beauty.
Most all would agree that the woman was beautiful. What is so overwhelming sad is that she died alone and, by the words of those closest to her, extremely depressed and broken hearted. Her beautiful body and flawless face not only did not find her true love. it may have even set the stage for never finding real love.
Being attracted to someone is one thing, the ability to truly love is another.
I want a confident man, trust worthy, honest , strong in convection, intelligent, passionate and has the ability to fall in love. A man that would be able to stand by me and comfort if I am one of the 1 in 8 that gets breast cancer and loses my breast and my health, I will take him in what ever package. I in my career I have seen packages, despite all the healthy living in the world, irreparably damaged in a matter of seconds.

Accumulation versus simplifying HOW ABOUT LETTING GO!!

Ailinn, I was so happy to see your last post. I am hoping that you will be able to feel empowered, as you see the joy, your unneeded possessions brings to others. I have always been a big believer in by doing for others we release our own troubles and anxieties.
Our life experiences change us. I found that after my divorce the less possessions I had the freer I felt. I guess the relief of being free from my needy husband felt so good that I just keep moving in that direction. My current practice is zero tolerance for anything material that takes away from the simple pleasures of life. I only desire what I need and things that give me great pleasure. So I have money for to buy quality items and the time to enjoy them. The less I have to clean and maintain the happier I am.
Peace be with you Ailinn.

How do you deal with anachronisms
Posted: 3/2/2010 7:27:15 PM
anachronism..... to be misplaced in time,
After giving time to ponder this question I decided my answer is No. I spent 52 years getting to this place in time and I plan on having a good time, during this time.

friends with bennies: pariah or paragon?

Sounds like a set up for heartache. Nothing authentic about it. Not really friends not really lovers. I have had romances that turned in to friendships but there is this underlying tension. I think I will stick with what I know best, I do not @@@@ my friends.
