Dating after divorce is radically different from single’s dating! What? “I’VE CHANGED?” Yeah, that too… but man, there weren’t all these online dating sites back then and things have changed! I’m single again after a seventeen year marriage and trying to figure out all these dating sites, the acronyms, the mainstream ideas in dating, and what the heck is actually what out there! And, brother’s and sister’s, let me tell you, saying, “times have changed” is an understatement!
First, a bit about Beryl Powers: I’m female, late 40′s, not hit with the ugly forest but not drop dead gorgeous, either. Single again, with an elementary age child in residence, and starting over professionally, pursing my Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship and Legal Investigation. I’m a former English, Art and Journalism teacher and have been out of the world of work for over ten years. I’ve been married twice (the first time was a nine month marriage – a young kid mistake – no kids), and looking to marry only one more time.
Like many others, I’m looking for the one to spend the rest of my life with, not just the night! However, life in these United States has changed so unbelievable in the last twenty years, it’s hard to know how to go about finding a decent date. The first thing you have to know before you hit the dating sites, bars, text-to-knows, and singles meets is the new language of dating. Check out more »
I read and an article in a magazine one time that took a survey about what trates people search for in a mate. All the usual stuff:
Honesty, integrity, stability…. All of THAT
Then it asked about “looks” .
You know, attractive people. According to the survey most people were not that opinioated about “good looks”. They often said that “looks are really not that important.
But… what they say and what they actually do are often very different things. Check out more »
Hipster dating sites! That would be the place where you meet all the hipster’s online for a groovy date. You meet each other there. Hold cyber hands and think pure thoughts.
(I reach out and take your hand.)
Let’s go to a art show!
(Looking at you and smiling)
Rite-on, I think they have a new Constantine Andreou exhibit Link here
Think of the possibilities?
2 hipsters hangin’ online. Sharing opinions on modern art, popular culture and the effects of dogmatic socialism. It would be like a dream come true for all the hipsters down at the cyber cafe.
Well I was looking around and I found one. www.hipsterdating.com
I didn’t bother linking to it.
It’s a domain somebody own’s with a parked page with ad’s. Gee, why didn’t I think of that? Sound’s like some easy money.
It worked, I clicked an ad. Go figure.
Being a single dude I just have to contend with my now infamous POF profile.
I wish that site had stat’s for me to check. It would be interesting to know if my profile get’s more hits than the next guy. Heck, I put all kind’s of work into it. If I had put as much time into blogging as I did that site I’d probably be on the A-List for bloggers.
I’m thinking about adding a dating extension onto the Hip Opinion.
Like I said, Imagine the possibilities.
Wow isn’t that the question? How do ya know if your in love? Let’s think about this a bit… Ever heard the statement:
I love you, but I’m not IN love with you?
So what’s the difference?
There seems to be some different kinds of love floating around. Agape love which would be unconditional love. And then there’s the falling in love with your mate… Of course this would certainly have conditions right?
Now isn’t it just as easy to fall OUT of love as it is to fall IN love? It has to be right? That’s why there are so many divorces and such. That just seems to be the sign of the times.
You could say I been in a few relationships (understatement) and I can say I have loved them all…But was I IN love? Gee… I guess I’ll never never know..
But there’s always next time around in the love experiences of life. They happen everyday. All that love poetry!
On my next post I am going to consider good looks, lust, and love. Ya’ll come back now ya hear?
