Surprisingly, I've already had two dates this week, both for lunch to meet possible "suitors"! I'm really surprised that these two men lived in San Miguel. It has been interesting. A little nerve wracking, after all, I'm not as young as when I could "draw them into my web" easily.
In addition, I'm corresponding and have talked on the phone with a Canadian who does not live in San Miguel but has a home in Chapala and another place in Melaque. Has a wicked sense of humor - a trait that I thoroughly enjoy.
Of course, now that all this is going on, I'm leaving town. All three will have found the "love of their life" by the time I get back here. But c'est la vie!
I had forgotten how awkward first "dates" are and I did find myself yesterday at a loss for words - which is definitely not me! To add to the fun of the meeting yesterday, I invited the writer of Gangs of San Miguel to join us. THAT added to it, in many ways.
I've received "interest" from guys from 20 to 50 - what is THAT all about? It plainly says I'm 66 - comments? I've always said I wouldn't date anyone younger then my son (45) and older then my father, (he would have been 98) - so ok, I'm stretching the last number - A LOT It would never, in a million years, occur to me to correspond with someone in their 20's.
I've decided that I have to approach this with a sense of humor, a sense of adventure, and be "open to the possibilities". It's like a giant sociological study.
