    Went to the show at ToJ...alone. Sat next to a woman who was also taking herself out on a date. Her name was Kate. She was pretty cool.

    OK, and I just got an invitation to a dinner in a vineyard in Oregon. You can imagine a fabulous gourmet dinner paired with fabulous Oregon Pinots. If I had a boyfriend, I would go with him. I would even pay for his dinner, if he were indigent. I don't want to go alone. But wouldn't this be a romantic weekend? With who? With who? :```-(

      @JoieDeVivre Sounds like fun - why do you need to bring a boyfriend?

        @morningsun: I do so many things alone. I will be going to the eclipse thing in Oregon in a month on my own, too. This is just something that sounds romantic to do with someone else. Going on my own, the long drive all alone....well...it sounds more lonely than fun.

    Maybe I should try match.com. Last time I was there, it was people who go golfing or boating at Lake Chelan. Ie, normies. But two people I know are now engaged to be married from match.com, so maybe I should try it again. OKC - nothing to see there.

      @JoieDeVivre Might be worth a try. Do they charge to try it out?

      @JoieDeVivre i think you should try it. maybe invite a promising and spontaneous contender to a first date at an oregon vineyard.

      One word of caution though - I had an account there for awhile that I abandoned. I went back to it a few years later to delete it only to find that it had been hacked and it was being used by someone posing to be an older gentleman with my same interests - so 'he' changed basically nothing but the name, age, and sex on the profile and was scamming at least half a dozen women using the account. I notified all the women he had a message history with and contacted Match. It took them forever to close the account. I was in a password war with the guy for a good hour at least before they finally disabled it. Crazy stuff. Just be careful.

      not sure what it says about me that an older man could pass as believable with my interests, but i digress...

    The saxophone player went back to Europe a month ago. A disappointment in the sack, anyway.

    I texted JH asking for a booty call. He said he was flattered, but I got no booty.

    I did a bike ride with EC. He's nice enough. Tons of money. A little old fashioned, but nice. Maybe?

      I admire your gumption.

      Dating at this age is unusual. The last time I was "dating" I was in my early 20's. Dating past 40 is different.

        @beequeen yes: fewer opportunities to "naturally" meet someone; you know who you are, so you're less likely to compromise.

        Also, weirdness around age: I am 55, the upper limit for so many men in terms of age, whether 45 or 65. In 5 months I turn 56, and suddenly I am past my sell-by date.

    Ok, so DL, the saxophone player? The real deal. Just got him to climb the water tower with me to look at the view. Heh. We did more than look at the view. Maybe he's going to be it. Maybe. My nipples are still humming. Dang.

    Went out with a new fella, BL, last night. First date that actually was fun, not a chore. We ended up not seeing the movie, just had dinner and a few laughs. May not be long-term commitment material, but all I want is a few laughs, anyway.

    Dinner with ME was OK, but nothing to write home about. JH actually texted me back. He said we should get together some time and "hang out", which I would take as code for rut like bunnies, but since he can barely motivate himself to actually reply to a text most of the time, I am not holding my breath over whether or not he'd appear in person.

    Mutual friends of SS told me that he is a "commitmentaphobe" which is not a problem for me. Also said he wants women to rescue. I hate this type. I do not need rescuing. There is something slightly kaflooie with men who want to rescue women. Shows a deep-seated insecurity.

    JR asked me out this evening for a movie, but I told him I was booked having dinner with my parents.

    I went cycling with ME last Sunday on a lark; now he wants to see me off-saddle for dinner on Saturday night. Hm.

    Meanwhile, I'm flirting with some dude on OKCupid. It went from light-hearted to somewhat randy rather quickly. Who knows what that will lead to.

    So, tonight I'm going out with JH to a march, rally, and then socialist beer night. Whether or not I get nookie out of this is doubtful.

    [Edited to add: JH was too depressed for the above, so I didn't do any of that. Sad for me.]

    Tomorrow, I will be with thousands of other cyclists, including JR, for the kick-off of the Seattle cycling season, the Chilly Hilly. That evening, we're going to see a burlesque show on the topic of racism.

    Probably no nookie out of that one, either.

You can type any date in plain English like in 3 weeks or next month.
You can also type in recurring due date like every day, every week and every month.
