    In the event that my wife reads this one day, I'll decline to enter into this discussion. I may be brave, and even brazen, but I'm not a fool. No good could come from it.

    If my husband ever ventured here, he'd just think "that Beth Gallagher looks kind of like my wife."

    since I'm single again I can relate on a different level. Yesterday I happened to remember that I used to drive my boss from her beach house to Boston(work).. So I drove to her beach house and chicken that I am decided not to try and see if she was there I had turned around on the street and was driving away when a car approached and had turn signal on meaning they were about to enter her property......After clumsily getting window down I called out "Betsy?" and the young lady said she was Bety's daughter..She asked my nam and I told her I'd worked with her mother......I don't know what's going to happen

    "Too soon old, too late smart." Ha, I'm not even serious about it anymore. I still flirt like crazy with attractive women that I know but it never goes beyond that because most of them are too young.

    Do I like being alone? -- no. But the effort required and the drive to change it is no longer there.

    I thought of several trite and flirty replies to that but I decided to go with a serious one.

    The man who wins my favor will have to have lots of money, a home on the river, and a big ..... boat. Send a picture of the boat and a copy of your latest bank statement. ;):p

    I am still on my second marriage. I will keep him, as he is just broke in good. It would be too much effort after composting hubby, to go after another. UNLESS he had tons of money and a better farm than mine.
    I have looked up a couple of old beaus on occasion but still like what I have.

    Last week I got to see a high-school beau; he attended my BIL's funeral. He attends the same church as my sister and deceased BIL and was part of the prayer circle when I had cancer treatment. He was pointed out to me by my cousin so I introduced myself after the service. He was speechless for a moment, then recovered gracefully. :D:D I guess I look a little different from when I was 16. Sorry I had to ruin his memory of that girl so long ago.

    (In my defense, he looked pretty old, too.)

    For a few years, one of my older brothers was married to a girl I dated in high school. After they were married, he introduced us, and neither one of us told him. It would have only been uncomfortable. I told him later, after they were divorced.

    I just came across that 2 year old comment I made and wondered "WTF was I thinking?"
