An introduction-because we have to start somewhere, don’t we?
I’m 55 dammit. I don’t hang out at bars. I’m not one of those cool guys who can strike up a conversation with any gal that catches my eye while jogging at my gym or shopping for lettuce at my grocery store. There are many attractive women who cross my path, but are they married? Are they single, but completely uninterested? Are they nuts? I was never in this position before. I really don’t know how to do it. So I joined an online dating site three months or so ago.
What do I want to accomplish here? I want to write about my experiences with the online dating world. I’ve been wandering around for a few months. Funny things have happened. I’m learning new rules. I may have hurt some feelings. I know I’ve had to thicken my skin some. Online dating is not for the faint of heart. I’ve seen things I didn’t want to see. I’ve been horrified at times, but tickled too. I’ve chatted with some beautiful, razor smart women of high accomplishment. They inspire me to be and do better. And I’ve met several at this point. So most of what I’ll write will be about events in the not so distant past. I’ve linked the blog to my online dating profile, so there is the chance women I’ve chatted with or dated will see this. I will not, of course, post any pictures of them. Privacy will be respected, but anecdotes will be told. I’m hoping to entertain, but also to learn and teach. I hope this can be interactive.
Let the adventures begin.
