on-line dating

So many lonely people is what I see on the dating site. lonely old men, from 68 to 85, most are in their 75+ range. I did see one man I could have liked to know at 85 but he is in Georgia, a retired judge, we agreed the distance was unfortunate .

The good guys don’t live in New Mexico! That is probably true, it’s a beautiful but poor state full of artists and government employees. The closest location of the men I’ve viewed are men in Arizona playing golf..

Now that I think of it, why didn’t I do this while I lived in the DC area or the Dallas area where distances would have mattered less and there would have been more available men? Because it never crossed my mind! That’s just like me too late for the party!

I think about friends from my Panama years, some I worked with everyday are gone, yet here am I wondering what’s next and if this is what’s next. I’m not one to plan far ahead but honestly I’m pretty satisfied with how things are for me right now, but I question if this will be a satisfactory long term plan for me,a 79 year old woman with limited resources and good health.

I guess this is what I’ll be writing about now. I check to see if there’s anyone new on my list of available men and see if anyone has answered or written me a note, I wonder about those personality tests and how some seem compatible when I definitely don’t think we would be. There is one that is super high so I wrote to ask him, why he thought that could be but he hasn’t answered me so maybe not?

  1. Hi Kathy. I certainly understand your situation. I built my house attached to my daughter and her wife. There is very little conversation, I can count one one hand when we went our together.. Admitted there has been Covid for the last 2 years,but it isn’t what I expected. I can’t move .!! all my money is in this 40O sq foot house. I have friends in Colorado, who I talk or email, some neighbors here, but it is lonely.. I wouldn’t want to be involved with a man, but it would be nice for conversation, or lunch, but I don’t think that would be acceptable to most men. Your bottle of Caroline’s is bigger than mine, but that’s because my daughter in law went to the store last time I haven’t tried answering this way before, would you let me know if you receive it

    1. Hey Joan, I get your messages and enjoy them but they are personal and out there so I read them and delete the personal parts. Keep writing them I love your responses even if I don’t want all of it published and you probably agree
