After almost 20 years, I'm single again. Now, I know there are many who jump right back in to dating as soon as the relationship ends, but I just
wasn't ready. I needed some time to .......I almost think "grieve" is the word I'm looking for. A big chunk of my life just went to sh** and I
needed time to adjust and put my heart back together. A quickie relationship was not going to replace years of marriage.
But, now, I think I'm ready to get back out there and see if I can find that spark again. It's been about 6 months and I'm more lonely than sad
about the marriage ending, so that tells me I'm at least ready to start looking. No, I'm not looking for instant love or in a rush to find "the
one". Hell,I have no idea what women are looking for anymore or if I even have it. I'm 50 years old and a bit old fashioned. I've been told I have
very good manners, meaning, I still say Ma'm, open doors for ladies, stand when a woman leaves the table or when she comes in, pull your chair out
for you.........you know, a gentleman. I'm not pushy, actually a bit shy. Back in the day, if I saw someone at a bar, I'd send over a drink and let
her take it from there. If I didn't get some pretty obvious signals to join her, I'd just go my own way. I'm also not sexually pushy,I don't
expect a one night stand and don't want it. Why? Well, I know I'm not just so damn hot, she has to have me and if she'll jump in with me,
I'll bet I'm not the first and I don't want to be with someone who makes a habit of that. Not knocking anyone who does, it's just not my style
[ Yes, I've had my share of one nighters ]
So ladies, can ya help me out here? Is just being "me" enough? 'Cause if it's not, it's going to get really lonely around here.
