Maybe I shall meet him Sunday, maybe Monday, maybe not...

 

Feeling restless,so I took a long drive up the coast today, it was sunny and warm until I got up to the Big Sur area where it was rather cool but still beautiful. Still, thinking about that 106 year old Chinese woman who says she wants to start looking for a husband. Where does a 106 year old woman go to search for a husband? Face Book? Match. com? Bars? I mean what the heck? She says she will be willing to look for a younger man, 101. But still, won't a 101 year old man want a younger woman in her 90s?

What I find so depressing about this story is the fact that is there a point in our life where we no longer feel the need to find male approval and love. Hell, I really don't care if I NEVER fall in love again! I've been hurt too deeply and maybe it's just me not the male species that there something wrong with. Who knows.

All I know is the fact that whenever I fall for a man he suffers from the; "I got those ,gee I wish you love me, oh you do, well see you later blues.."

A guy pal was telling me of this eighty year old, retired surgeon client of his. The man is a widower and now is playing the internet field. He dates much younger women in their sixties (still a twenty year age gap). So back to our 106 Chinese woman will need to find a single man who is at least 118 for him to be interested in her and what are the odds of that?

Love sucks!

My advice, stay single and count your blessings!

Men are forever trying to recapture their youth via dating younger women - whom they can't keep up with anyway and it is therefore doomed to failure. Women are more realistic and realise that to recapture youth you may as well have a facelift instead. Lol! Better bet than a man. Basically I think they are just too stupid for words and everything is geared for their own selfishness. I don't buy into it and think you are wise to keep your distance. (Oh, I am such a cynic!)

I'm a cynic too, thanks Aggie!

I don't know.
Some people like mates, others not.
My sister-in-laws neighbor has been divorced 20 years and says she's too independent now to put up with anyone, yet my friends mum just remarried in her 70's a couple of years after loosing his dad to cancer, so I guess some people like company others not so much. I know I do much better when I'm married than not (I outlived husband #1).

I don't know; men can be lovely from time to time, I can be lovely from time to time. Sometimes, the times match for a time. For a little time.

What a beautiful photo...Big Sur is one of the two places in America I know where the mountains come right down to the ocean (the other being coastal Maine).

I appear to remain single decade after decade, and tend not to think of it as a blessing, but don't know how much of that is the force of societal norms, much as I tend reject them with relish, that continually beat against me....
