I must forewarn you - I have been rather introspective the last few days, while I had a little time to gaze out at the sunsets and skyline of Houston and the green of Memorial Park. So below is one of the posts I wrote as I watched the sun set the other evening.........alone.
For me, someone's soul is important. Their intentions and actions mean much more then the color of their hair or lack thereof. Intelligence and humor are the icing on the cake.
So it drives me absolutely crazy (some say that would be a short trip) when I meet a person who is looking for an "accessory" not a partner. You would think that with age would come wisdom - but I find that is far from true.
So many are still in the throes of caring "what other people think". And, I tell them that most people are too busy thinking about themselves and their lives to really care about yours. So, it is a wasted effort.
I'm amused and chagrined in this "dating episode" to see men around my age looking for women 25-45 who MUST have.........and then the physical descriptives start. As though they are buying a possession, a fancy tie or cuff links, if you will.
And, older women, I suppose do the same thing........not this one though.
So my question always is" What if that carefully selected accessory were to become ill or injured and no longer could be the "perfect accessory" to make the person look better? What then?
