Purple Haired? You bet I am, if not now when? Must be a huge turnoff rather than lighthearted acceptance of my lighthearted artistic personality.

I just would love a good friend/companion. Sex???? my husband died 18yrs ago, however I might perhaps have some extremely vague memories.... I have absolutely nothing to bring to a relationship but myself. No assets what so ever. Now that being said, I found a place called not4dating. Whoopie!!!! I thought. HA HA HA! Every single person who contacted me was looking to part me from money I donít have...even the women.

I am resigned to spending my final time in this mortal coil with my closest friends....Me, Myself and I, as there is no opportunity to meet a like minded individual. And please no suggestions, those have already been exhausted.

I actually got rejected by eHarmony. Must've been those four divorces.


I won't give you any "suggestions". I could have written some of your post myself. I've been divorced for over 20 years now and doubt I'd be fit to live with. I'm too set in my ways but I like me just fine. When I first got divorced I went online to check out the various dating sites. Back then you could check it out all you wanted, for free, then join if you wanted. My friend told me that, now, they let you see a limited amount and then you have to pay to see more.


One time I was surfing through guys in my town. I saw a couple I knew. One of them made me really laugh because I knew the guy pretty well and his profile didn't fit him at all. He said he liked long walks on a moonlit beach. I couldn't imagine him walking anywhere, moonlight or otherwise. He was a pretty crude individual too. I never did tell him I saw that. Oh yeah, and I also saw a profile for my cousin's husband! Yes, I told her. They hated each other already so it didn't make much difference. They divorced for other reasons.

And I'd be the "younger woman" of an 85 or 90 year old!

If someone is talking about their "ex" on a first date, you should get up and walk away. They should be focused on you and getting to know you; for them to sit there and talk about their ex is just rude. You aren't their therapist. Hand them a business card for a therapist/counselor and then walk away.
