Sticks and Stones

I just responded to 62 emails. Some from married men. Not sure why they're looking for a "pen pal" or "just dinner" with a woman who's obviously looking for neither. And several men nearing 80 looking to get together for a casual date. They're even too old for my mother! Quite a few women wrote me. Some to congratulate me on taking this "bold" step. Others to give advice. And then there are those who feel compelled to tell me what a self serving bitch I must be. Funny, they don't even know me. Nor do they seem to have any actual credentials in psychology or psychiatry. I guess making my quest public invites opinions. I'm cool with that. And I've been writing back to everyone. What can I say? I was brought up well. There are also some real, live men who I'm corresponding with. I hope to start meeting them next month. After all, that's when you know. If it's real.

It's been over a month! We want to hear your story!

I guess I'm just a voyeur at heart. And I'm not the only one!

But my intent is to support and honor your process, even if I may not always act that way!

Dear,

I'm 50 and have been married for 21 years to a man who's now 76. He was too good to pass up when he was 55 and he's still quite the fox.

I'm tall, perfect athletic bod, pretty face, financially independent; well-educated, etc., and he is still 6 foot 2, eyes of blue, sexy, smart and competent. So you may want to revise your knee-jerk notions about men's ages. Just a thought; I know most older fellows aren't like him.
