Mom

Yesterday we had a belated Mother’s Day brunch for my 83 year old mother. It was delayed because she happened to be on an Alaskan cruise with her 92 year old husband on the actual holiday. It was a great time, good food, family and friends. I think we all have taken our parents and […]

The balance

Recently a friend asked me if I ever was impulsive, I thought it was a strange question so my immediate response was yes. But of course, the question started to bother me, why would any one ask me this? Do I not come across as someone that is impulsive? The definition of impulsive: doing things […]

As good as it gets

Don’t we all want it all? It is the absolute American dream. Advertising sets us up,  the magazine ads, commercials, music videos portraying romantic, sexy and ideal relationships.

“The first”

On line dating can actually be exhausting, especially if one is on multiple sites. Personally, I choose to be on just one site at a time. I try to answer every email just not to be rude. I generally will exchange several emails, maybe a phone call before the initial meeting. Since I have been […]

OMG, my soulmate

Okay, now you have been seeing the same person for a few months. He might be the funniest, brightest and easiest person to be with. You might possibly think this is what you have been searching for. You may find yourself with the same political beliefs, religious beliefs, and financial outlook. This is exactly what […]

Silver splitters

 I was amazed when I first entered the dating scene a couple of years ago just how many singles and functions for singles that were available for the over sixty crowd. Why would this be? Statistics indicate the divorce rate is climbing substantially for this age group. One would think that by the time you have […]

Blocked!

All of us have experienced a relationship that has taken a wrong turn. We may have been friends, lovers or business associates that developed fundamental differences and we decided to part ways. This is a normal part of life. And I am sure many of us have also experienced the same parting of ways with […]
