I debated whether to write this post or not, but then I said, "What the heck? It's among friends". So here it is.........
It started about a year ago. I didn't approach it as a game, but as another of life's adventures. I decided, after walking through the dark tunnel of grief, that it was time to find the right person to share the rest of my life with.......
So, I joined E-Harmony. So many men, so little time. I was surprised and overwhelmed by how many men in my age range were looking for someone, hopefully to share their life with also. It didn't turn out that way in all instances. But, there is always the "delete" button. I learned to use it judiciously when the karma or qualities weren't right.
I did meet two very different men - one from Alaska and the Sea of Cortez - another from Vancouver. Those didn't work out for various reasons. In the meantime, I met delightfully interesting people who I learned a lot from and enjoyed corresponding with - even at long distances. One man, an ex-pat was in China. Talk about geographically impossible! But, all in all it has been a fascinating experience.
One that I would encourage anyone seeking a partner to try. There are many sites. I would not go back on E-Harmony or Mexican Cupid. I did find Senior People Meet to be the most appropriate for me.
Of course common sense should prevail. In the case of those of you still in the USA, obviously it would be much easier to meet people in your geographic area. Not the case for me.
However, I have met someone. I consider myself now to be "in a relationship". And, if and when the time comes, I'll tell you more. Right now I just want to bask in the joy and delight of it all. It has been going on for a while.
I'd like to offer this bit that someone sent to me and I love. "LIFE is short. BREAK the rules. FORGIVE quickly. KISS slowly. LOVE truly. LAUGH uncontrollably. And NEVER regret anything that made you smile!"
