I have red in wikipedia that Eugene is at the confluence of the Willamette & McKenzie rivers, are these rivers clean enough to swim in or is it like my lake Ontario a open sewer?I had never had the privilege to swim in a lake or river in N.America,i had to go to Scandinavia(Iceland) to do that!
i have also red postings speaking of a Astoria as a place where there is a sea food festival so i can surmise that it is where fresh fish & seafood (witch i can't get enough off) are available,the question is how far Eugene is to Astoria?Does one as to go there to find fresh fish or does Eugene along with what seem to be a great organic fruits & vegetables market scene also have a sea food market like the one in Seattle?Also what about the meats as in beef,pork & chickens are they also organic?
Finally Eugene being a college town i suppose that if a one comes in to town as a 38y.o.,childless,never married & well to do bachelor (but whom look like Kieth Richards,hey nobody's perfect)shouldn't have to much trouble to find a young lady in her early 20s right?
So the question is:how about the young babes in Eugene are they hot & worth marrying?
thank you

BWAHAHAHAHA! That close to the headwaters, the rivers are sparkling clean glacial runoff. They might get warm enough to swim in by August. Otherwise, wear a wet suit.

About 5 hours, one way.

You are going to need an attitude adjustment to be successful with Oregon women.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the early 20 something college women are less likely to check out a guy in his late 30's than you are to check out a woman in her early 50's.

Keep in mind that these young ladies are surrounded by men in their own age group who are as equally svelte as themselves. Who would you chose if you were one of them?

Christy Brinkley,Linda Harrison,Kate Capshaw,Tinya Roberts or Jacqueline Smith and hell what about even old Raquel Welch!?is that what you are talking about?

"as equally svelte as themselves":
what makes you think that I'm like you?.One of the many perks of late bachelorhood is a long shelve life due to attentive personal care.

" men in their own age group "
whom in the majority have a mindset & conversation that revolve around :The Ball game,Beer,Wings and a wet T-shirts contest but most disconcerting unlike when i was at that age TODAY THEY ALMOST ALL OF THEM STILL LIVE AT HOME WITH MOMMY & DADY or at best in a college dorm!!

AND THAT IS COMPETITION TO YOU!?

WTH is an "old lase"?

We both know that those stunningly gorgeous women are not the norm for their age group. And are you seriously comparing your physical attractiveness to some of the most beautiful women in the world?

But, that really isn't my point. My point was that the women you're asking about are highly unlikely to pay you much, if any, attention. And certainly not the type of attention you're seeking. They might help the old guy when he slips and falls, but when he tries to ask for their number, they'll politely give a fake one.

Unless you've suddenly grown significantly younger and a uterus, I doubt you're much like me.

And, this is just a hint, but women aren't exactly impressed by "late bachelorhood". To us, it usually means that the guy either can't sustain a relationship, for whatever reason, or that he's a closet case. Either way, not a good thing when attempting to impress the ladies.

First, I've never really considered gaining the attentions of the opposite sex a competition. And, secondly, I'm a married woman so if those men are my competition, there are some entirely different issues I'd be concerned with.

I wasn't sure if you where a women or not,witch explain what i said in my last post but the point you made my dear digitdot is that as 38 y.o.man i wouldn't find a 50y.o. women to be attractive/just as a 20y.o.women wouldn't find a 38y.o. man attractive and that is not true.A 50 y. o. women that as the time,resource and inclination can be very attractive(the same is true for a man).They don't have to be celebrities neither i often see here in Canada and in Europe "every day"women whom are very attractive and desirable.You seem to threaten by the older mens whom are looking at a much younger womens for a trans-generational relationship movement.The tone,viscousness & aggressivity of your post clearly demonstrate that, you claim to be married and "not looking" ,so don't worry about it than.You are too hung up on age ...live and let live

You describe yourself as being of a mind that believe that it is "WEIRD" for a man to wait until he as the means before getting married and have kids,you describe yourself as the kind of female that would consider a responsible man as a "closet case"/"can't sustain a relationship" type for not being married at a age that you consider to be the right one?And you call that and yourself normal?
Now that i have reach a stage in my life where i got the financial security that can allow buy a home(waterfront condo) and own a expensive car is where i should be in order to get married,not before!
"Unless you've suddenly grown significantly younger and a uterus, I doubt you're much like me."
How can possibly be like you,aren't you a women?
but younger i doubt that!

Not threatened by it in the least. It doesn't affect my life in any way, whatsoever. I'm simply giving you the reality check you so desperately need.

"Late bachelorhood" is not necessarily the same as someone waiting until they're capable of supporting a family. And few 20-somethings care about that, anyway. You're proving my point that a young woman in her early 20's would find herself having little in common with a man in his late 30's who's now ready for a family.

That was my point...that I am a woman and in NO WAY am I "like" you. And yes, at 31, I'm younger than you, though not what I would consider significantly.

I have been an early 20-something woman and was merely giving you the advice of one from the PNW. If you chose to take the advice, so be it. If not, so be it. Doesn't really matter to me. Your grasp of the social situation in the PNW is not one based in reality.



P.S. This is a little OT, but can you please use the quote tags? I get the feeling that English isn't your native language and the quote tags will make your posts much more coherent.

You CLAIM!! to be married and "no longer looking"if that is the case....than do not worry yourself sick over what the rest of us do...live and let live

Sir...
10 posts and an attitude that comes across in your public persona on the internet does not make friends here.. even if it is the internet.. as such I offer this advice as a most respectful and friendly suggestion for you to think about. You sound arrogant by your words. I have usually found in life that there is someone just a little stronger,, a little prettier.. a little faster right around the corner.. and the "hot" women you propose to meet also know this.. and would be happy to drop you in a second for the next man.

My read on Oregon women is that they are interested in the same thing most well grounded women are interested in, (Southern California being an exception).

They probably would like to meet someone who is not self-absorbed, self-centered, perhaps someone who does NOT fancy himself as a pretty boy, even if he "is", (for you will find a mirror and a hairbrush lacking in most of the beautiful wilderness areas of Oregon).

I have noted that in places like Eugene there are quite a few women who are more concerned with the environment and social justice than the hair on their legs.. and as such couldn't care less how "nice" someone looks.. these woman are more motivated with the grey matter between the ears of another person than what someone looks like... even if that person a fine specimen of a homosapien, who is a "cut" above the rest.

What women are interested in, Sir, is a man of integrity and honesty, of maturity and steadiness... one who is perhaps interested in others, especially the person he would like to meet. This implies compromise and effort. Perhaps a man who volunteers for cause greater than himself to benefit his community.The amount of effort you put into someone else rather than your own vanity will assist you in receiving all the mysteries of the universe you seek. I am giving you the benefits of my personal experiences Sir, trust me, they are the fast track to a woman of substance. I know.. I married one. She is a slender goddess,, smart beyond belief, honorable, naturally sensuous. She couldn't care less about what you look like. She is MORE representative of Oregon women than the shallow dim witted Barbie doll that might find you appealing. But.. you might get lucky... after all you you said you look like Keith Richards. Forgive me Sir, I profess to being ignorant who he is.. the only Keith Richards public persona I know of is some skanky burned out rock star. But I do applaud you for saying you aren't perfect. I agree wholeheartedly.

If you are looking for women younger than you.. perhaps more superficial, might I respectfully suggest Southern California. I met 1000's of them there, who would be happy to know someone like you.... but for Oregon, Sir, I think you will be disappointed.. many women there either have a brain... or don't really care about someone who professes the attributes you find appealing...

Might I also respectfully suggest an English course, for when you meet the perfect "Hot" Oregon babe worth marrying... and if she ends up being superficial as well, she might not like it if her mate cannot form a sentence or spell words correctly... it smacks of the local toothless wonder, redneck country hick males that ALSO live in areas of Oregon... which are your competition.. but I'm sure you have that covered.

Of course this is just my opinion.. and it is just the internet.

Good luck, Sir.
