    I miss having that connection. I have a type though... Lately I've been drawn to younger, military men. Obviously it hasn't worked! I'm trying to be open and try new things.. I miss all night Skype sessions and just knowing that regardless of where we are in the world, we have...

    Got on Plenty of Fish,

    because a fellow nurse told me to find a good guy there. All the girls I know elsewhere claim it is another scam site. I just find it foolish to pay for dating. Also don't trust those who do pay for membership, because it's this trap. Monthly payments, such as my monthly gym...

    To Love Again Can a 55 year old woman fall in

    love after 20 years of not loving? Well, you know, kids don't count, and a passion for a career or advanced education also doesn't count. Sisters, aunts and cousins aren't the love objects I'm talking about. I'm wondering if a person who was widowed 20 years ago can love another...

    I think maybe I am ready again.

    I've had enough time to myself now to see how I can try to improve my thought processes and how to trust more freely, so I think I could be ready now to have someone new to share life with again.

    I've noticed an awful pattern.

    It is disappointingly common amongst English females. The female will date a very blatant jerky guy. He's a jerk towards her. No brainer. They break up, she complains about how all guys are bad and that she just wants a good guy. Genuinely caring guys try and cheer her up. One...
