    Minus the "Yikes" I don't like

    that word in this context. Not sure why? I guess because I feel good about it, especially now. Anyhow, I just want to know if a veryyyyyyyyyy good looking man can turn 52, and find MEeeeee attractive? He's a hunk 100 percent. But I wouldn't even be interested if he didn't treat...

    Yikes Is Right.

    Single. I live in a goldfish bowl, so the only way to be able to meet a broad range of better quality men is on-line. On the positive side, I have to admit I am pleased that I am still able to attract good looking and desirable men and I have had the options I have had to...

    Want To Date But Cannot Attract A Stable Person

    I want to date; I really do...But I cannot seem to attract a man who has it together. I hate this; I'm 46, in the sexual prime of my life, kids are grown, am successful, but I either meet players or guys who have little kids and are broke. The last two guys I liked pursued me...

    Single again. :-/ I've come to terms with that fact. I don't hate being single, but don't like it much either. I work crazy hours so haven't taken the time to put myself out there concerning the dating scene. I absolutely refuse to date anyone from work. So, where to begin? I don...

    this dating thing is mystery.

    Most of the over 40 are newly divorced & have the residue of the previous relationship. Not having a clue of letting go

    Single and over 40 is true,

    but the dating part? Not so much...it's not that I don't want to date, I just don't seem to meet men that I'd be interested in going out with. Most of the men I know are married to really nice ladies! I'm a parent and most of my friends are married parents. I looked online for...

    Wow How Things Have Changed

    It seems like we went through some major changes since I started dating.  Things use to be simple enough, a sexy look, send a drink, ask for a dance. . .   Then you were certain to get your interest across.  Nowadays, wow, go out to the bar, you only meet...

    Here It Goes Again...

    Just two weeks after a GREAT vacation to Mexico, my bf tells me this past Sunday that he wants to break things off - that he loves me, but doesn't think "enough" to marry me. I have no interest in "doing the holidays" anymore - contemplating taking the decorations down.
