Well Miss Michelle, you can at least know that your husband found the Lord before he died. As for online dating,,I met some really great guys online. One in particular ,,we lived together for about 16 months,,had some great times,,I actually went tubing down a river! never thought I'd do that in my early 50s--or EVER,,,lol,,but it was a ton of fun! But I wasn't enough for him,,he liked them BIGGER than me,,lol,,and I wasn't about to put on more pounds,,lol,,plus his teen-aged son was an issue,,Norm and I are still friends,,he'll be getting married in Oct.
I have been to chat parties,,where online friends fly/drive in to a person's home and we party all weekend. When I say "party" I don't mean a sex orgy,,,no drinking actually,,just talk,,laugh,,eat,,swim at the motel pool,,and just have a clean good time. That's actually how I came to know Arkansas. I met a little lady (and I do mean little--4'10 I think she is),,we are great friends, and the house I'm living in is hers,,she inherited it. I'm thinking about buying it. Anyway, I know what you mean about male gold diggers--gigoloes--sounds like my ex-brother in law,,lol,,I introduced my sis to him while we were in the same unit in the Army,,they married a month later, divorced 7 yrs later, and then 2 yrs ago she gave him my phone number, and we got to talking, and it sounded like the same old Bryan I used to know in the army, so I agreed to let him come to Arkansas and see how it worked out. Well he is such a hypocrit!! He says he's a Christian, but you should hear the names he calls me when he doesn't get his way,,lol,,,We don't live in sin,,we have separate bdrms and live as bro/sis. But I am surely looking forward to the day his disability kicks in,,b'cuz he is OUT of here soon after it starts,,lol,,,and I'm sure we'll be better friends when he is in his own place. Plus he has agreed to take 3 of the smaller dogs that are his favs,,lol--but I have visitation rights,,lol.
I won't do anymore chat parties or online romances or flings,,I liked being single after my Michael died. And these last 2 yrs with Bryan have been miserable,,so I've learned my lesson,,lol
You sound like a really nice lady Miss Michelle. Don't let a few bad apples ruin dreams or chatting online,,there really are nice guys online. And you sound like a hard worker,,of course, if I still worked I'd be like you,,, work work work,,,church,,church functions,,work,,lol,,,house work,,yard work,,,but I like staying busy,,I can actually say I think I can count on one hand when I've been bored,,I do crafts, I have my fur-babies, gardening, etc,,the only fly in the ointment is Bryan,,lol,,no fly swatter big enough tho,,lol,,but I can't say it's been all bad,,he did build a fence to keep my babies safe,,and i actually beat him in dominoes now and then,,lol
I liked what you said about not compromising on your beliefs--high five to ya!!! The closest thing I've come to compromising is letting Bryan move in under the same roof as I--and believe me-even church members have asked why I don't toss him out on his ear!! Than isn't very Christian,,lol,,no,,I'll wait til his disability kicks in,,
I lost my Michael after only 17 yrs of marriage,,in 1996 and I still miss him! a month after he died my oldest step son died --I raised him since he was 6 and my son is only 2 months older than him. My son found Jason dead in his bdrm! just before they turned 24,,sad--found out Jason had stolen some of Michael's morphine meds and shot them up,,THAT was a shocker to me,,,but I'm just glad it happened after Mike died--cuz that would have killed him for sure!!
Well it's to late. I am turned off to internet chat. Only face to face for me. I am not moving anywhere unless God moves me.
Sorry to hear about your step son. What a tragedy! That would have torn me up.
