Posted on 04/21/2012 12:42:50 AM PDT by mamelukesabre
I am a middle aged single guy with no ex wives and no kids. I've never been married and never knocked up no one. For the last 12 years I've been trying hard to find that perfect someone. You may remember me having threads on this very same topic. I recently had a couple of relationships with young asian girls and posted about it...only to have those threads yanked by the FR mods.
The asian girlfriend I broke up with and posted about is still around but we don't get along that well anymore. I found another asian girl younger than her but she is no longer in the picture. She decided I was too old. She probably had a point since she was only 26. Please see my previous threads about my physical fitness. I have been working my ass off to look 15 years younger than my age and I think I have pulled it off except for baldness.
Tonight I met a new girl and I am already in love. There is just one problem. She is a 20 year old law student from Estonia. She is short and chubby and wears very thick glasses. She is very old for her age if you know what I mean. I spent the evening dancing with and drinking with her friends.
We've already made arrangements for the future. I know I am a complete idiot. I can't help it. I will be working out extra hard now and suffering more from tendonitis than I ever have in my life.
I actually wish I really was making this up.
You better not have a greasy gray ponytail and earring unless you also have about $5M. the greasy gray ponytail indicates “I have enough money not to give a rat’s axe”. It is absolutely a turn off to most women.
Hopefully, my point to the guy was to be thankful for what you got. If he’s that desperate, he NEEDS to rent one. They really are plentiful. And that tendonitus can kill you.
I see a divorce in your future unless you change your asinine attitude. “keep all you’re earning” really? cold comfort in the middle of the night and God can take it all away from you with one fell swoop, then you would maybe appreciate your family.
The folks at DU will have a feast with this thread.
George Burns once observed,
“A man is only as old as the woman he feels.”
Prayers for your happiness. God has plans for us that we may not comprehend at the time but can blossom with the fullness of time.
I don't think you'll regret it for a second...
I know a unmarried couple who have been living together for 30+ years. True definition of soul mates. 3 children. When you hear the stories about a spouse dying and then the other spouse dies the next day due to grief, well this will be this couple.
Then you have 50% of marriages ending in divorce and probably another 25% of marriages that are unhappy but don't get divorced.
It's not as clear cut as you want to make it out to be.
Not to go all biblical on you because I’m hardly a role model *but* it would seem a wiser tack for them to show her the compassionate love of Christ and accept her into the family.
Not all ‘shack ups’ are permanent.
I’ve been married to mine for 11 years but we’ve been together for 19.
My parents accepted him and lo and behold, *I* gave into the marriage deal.
After the first marriage, I wanted nothing to do with chains around my neck ever again.
Love makes them change faster.
God bless you both.
I refrained from stating that myself.
Way to go, El Cid....LOL
You don’t know the first thing about me, or my situation. Go judge yourself, not me.
I feel the same way. Except it would be no husband, no kids, no dogs and no birds.
I’m almost 55 and my greatest desire is to be simply left alone. I’m tired of taking care of other people. I’m literally exhausted from it both mentally and physically. I’ve never lived alone in my life but I’d certainly like to try it.
More like mildly digested.
Eleven years ago, I lost my wife, my soul mate of 36 years to the beast of cancer. I sold our house on Cape Cod because I didn’t want to live with all the memories there. I moved to Florida to be near siblings; my kids were all spread out. Two months here, and I met a widow at Match.com. She is six years my junior, and I’ve been happy as a clam ever since. She has been absolutely indispensable to me during my various health issues (I turn 70 soon). I hope I’m making her as happy as she’s making me.
They can't get past the "living in sin" part. Said I am living a immoral lifestyle. They are ultra fundmentalist . It was rammed down my throat since I was a little kid, no premarital sex etc. Very strict upbringing. One reason why I never told them about my GF for 1 1/2 years I knew the shiiite was going to hit the fan. (They live in another state)
We think they went to the extreme thinking I would pick them over her. Not going to happen. Besides lovers we are truly best friends-have been way before we became romantically linked. Have all the same interest in life.
Other couples who know us have told us not to let the age difference get between us and some have said they wish their relationship with their significant other was as strong as ours.
As you can see from my screen name, I’m a woman, married 15 years. And I will say bluntly there is no way you can be in love with someone you just met. Lust, sure. But you know nothing about her. On my first date with the man who’s my husband, it was different from all other first dates, but I was not in love and neither was he. Not then.
And killing yourself working out so you can look 15 years younger? Dude, I say this with kindness and respect, but I have to be blunt——you should grow up. Why is a man your age consumed with looking like a kid? Age catches up, no matter how hard you try to outrun it. Make peace with that. I don’t mean let yourself go-—not at all. Exercise for good health most of all, and to look WELL——not to chase youth that’s already departed.
If you want lasting love, marriage, that kind of thing-—chill out. Let it come, don’t try to force it. You’re old enough that you should know all this stuff already. Stop acting like you’re 15 years younger than you are and take things slow.
That wasn’t intended to be a flame-—just straight talk. Best wishes to you.
A good friend of mine, age 62, found his current wife via an international dating website. She's from the Uraine and they've been married about 12 years now.
When he brought her here, she didn't speak any English other than what she used to communicate with him via emails. She has since learned English, obtained a 4 year college degree in Actuarial Science as well as one in math. About a year and a half ago he moved from here in Michigan to North Carolina where he could find work and subsequently started his own business as a tax accountant. I don't know if his wife has found work as an Actuary yet but she has been making some money offering Russian translation services.....
While living in the Ukraine, her entire family lived in a small apartment and nobody ever owned a vehicle. So one of the things she had to learn here was how to drive. She did get her drivers license but very seldom drives. And she also got her U.S. Citizenship a couple years ago........
Join the Secret Service. See the world.
That is a metaphor for the way things are in this country. Leftist will do everything but leave you alone.
PS: After I got out of the Navy I lived alone for about 3 years. The best 3 years of my life. We are roughly the same age you and I, in the words of Gen Cleburne CSA:
"All we ask is to be left alone,"
