Hi 1601east, Isnt it funny How we go to the " Singles or dating venues" and get soooo dissapointed. We women usually just want to look around and see whos out there and if someone interesting comes up, we then attempt some communication, only to get shut down. I find that not only "free" sites have rude unintelligent , inconsiderate men on them, but the so called "Christian Site and Pay for It all sites! No matter where you go to find a partner or friend , there seems to be the same problem, Men seeking PLAYMATES!
So when I came to AARP I never thought of it as a dating or Singles Site , but an information site. When I found that it had this forum and others, I couldnt believe it. Here I found Intelligent, resourceful, communicative people who were here because they KNEW they would meet people over a certain age bracket! I came and I vented then I discovered many , Men and Women friends with the same problems and questions.
.. and Yes, I have met a wonderful person , with whom conversations on like interests and hobbies are a daily occurance. A Man with special talents and goals. I never thought about meeting someone here of all places but it has happened and it has been a wonderful exchange of threads , emails and phone calls.
So my advice is stay away from other" Singles Venues" and talk to real people with real lives and enjoy their company here, share your interests and hobbies with them, and you just may get surprised at what you might find!
I appreciate your reply and advice, Merin, sounds solid and sensible to me and I'll give it a try.
It's wonderful that you've found someone to connect with and I hope you continue to enjoy and expand the relationship. Best wishes.
