I wanted to photograph models in the nude - but they keep telling me to get dressed

I met my husband through match.com. Age is on every profile.

Always wondered how accurate they really are. (never ran one)
Well, just to see how accurate they are, I ran a search on myself. The search found my 2 marriages and a girlfriend I lived with for 6 years. It also found everywhere I'd lived for the past 35 years, several of my brothers and sisters, and other information that was also correct.

I did ask the women I did searches on about any discrepancies. That was the most interesting part. Most wanted to evade and obscure any explanation, but the one I'm currently corresponding with was either truthful, or her explanations sounded reasonable to me, so I decided she was a keeper.

And I totally agree on the perils of getting married late in life- probably not gonna happen for me. I'm still open to relationships, though.
I to "have concerns" about getting married at 66. I don't think I will. The two times I've been married haven't really worked out for me financially. When you marry, you are giving the other person the ability to totally wreck your credit, and drain your assets. Too many think that your money is our money, and their money is their money.

But as Athena says, I'm still open to a relationships, I just need to check with my financial adviser and my lawyer, about the implications of a long term relationship and so called, "common law marriage".

My husband and I met on eHarmony. We werenít retired, but I was in my early fifties and he was in his early sixties. We lived eighteen miles apart and even had mutual acquaintances. We never would have met without online dating.

I think you were married to my first husband! Fortunately, my second was FAR better.

Common-law marriage is pretty deliberate. You actually have to tell people consistently that you're husband and wife. It doesn't just happen by default after X years of cohabitation.

To me, the bigger risk is just ending up with someone very needy or whose tastes exceed his budget (and yes, I realize there are female versions of this). Been there, done that and I did WAY too much to keep the peace. And how do you break up with a 68-year old guy who's unemployed, living with you and has no assets and a $1,500/month SS check?

I admit I am needy ..I wonder if my picture still comes up when you look up the word . But that is because I donít want to think anymore at home .. I let my wife make most of the daily decisions about stuff ...

The best was we were in a restaurant and the waiter says to me would you like bread sir ? I said to my wife , Do I want bread ? She said no , you donít like bread ..... I said did I ever eat bread? She said no you never ate bread ..I said okay ..so I turned to the waiter No bread ....he just looked at us in disbelief ...he couldnít believe he just witnessed this ...oh man it was hysterical seeing that reaction

At least my husband is much smarter. He told me to pick whatever and he’ll be happy to eat. That’s how it is at home anyway. I just serve him food and he eats. Why would eating out be any different when we go out.

In the re-marriage front, I could be convinced if the guy is a billionaire. Add smiley face here in case somebody thinks I’m serious. You never know with the internet nowadays. Robot knows no humor.
