Ya know at age 66 I have to admit I've never figured it out. Hindsight says that all the women I decided to chase never stayed caught. But the women who decided that they were gonna get caught by me - did.

Not sure exactly what I just said - but I understand it.

heh heh heh - in a lefthanded quirky sort of way.

Thanks, all, for the feedback and encouragement.

Actually I'm pretty self-sufficient and really don't need anyone to provide me with anything. I truly enjoy men for their companionship, even my gay guy friends.

I have heard that many men like to be the '"knight on the white horse riding in to rescue the damsel in distress''. Perhaps I should not be fixing my own leaky shower and maybe should be seeking a ''white knight plumber"? LOL

FWIW, in response to Orchidflower's comment to seek feedback from a gay friend, this is what he e-mailed me, "You'd be a great catch for the right guy. You're in great shape, have a pleasant face, are well-read and constantly learning, and are always out doing things. As long as you don't try to market [yourself] as 20-30 [years old], you're good."

cantlogin - I don't know where you live, but thanks for the thought.

W2R - I appreciate hearing the story of how you met Frank. As a fellow introvert, I will set some goals for myself to get out and meet people. And I sure know what you mean about the 'frogs' in internet dating land. I realize that on these sites, everyone is out of context and that makes it so difficult to 'filter in' the people who we might really have a great relationship with.

Orchidflower - If anything, I'm often too busy. Guys have asked me out and I'll say, "How about next Wednesday, it's the only night I have open." I do wonder if that makes them think that I've got a some other guy(s) 'on the hook'?

I didn't make any New Year's resolutions, so my soon-to-be-finalized 'Get Out There and Meet People' goals will be a good substitute. I like to have goals/metrics, so this will be good for me.
