by someone my age (50s) in the same physical condition as me, similar interests, we find humour in the same things, easy to talk with and have a good time..but he stated he only dates (bangs) 20-somethings. So I say to all those "hot" 20-somethings who are banging older guys---you can keep 'em because we don't want them. No, I'm not bitter just disappointed. I guess I'd hoped that if you make it to 50+ you'd realize that superficiality is the psychic disease of our lifetime. Fortunately, I believe there are plenty of good people in the sea and will continue to fish.


I work with people who start "early" to leave before the end of work, only to spend that time on their phones.

Never been this lonely in a relationship, not even in the worst one! "I used to think the worst thing in life was to end up all alone,it's not. The worst thing in life is to end up with people that make you feel all alone." Robin Williams r.i.p.


For aknowleging my loss and for once not telling me to get over it

Gift giving.

There is an art to gift giving, as well as receiving a gift. Often I enjoy giving small gifts to those close to me, and even sometimes strangers. There is nothing attached to the gift, nothing is expected in return. Every once in awhile though, the gesture is taken out of context. Has gift giving become something that is lost in translation?

Too expensive to move?

Not if you move somewhere cheap with lots of jobs. Don't be afraid... just plan ahead a little... like find a place to rent ahead of time and make sure your bank account has some savings. Eat nothing but vegetarian for a few months if you have to (okay, okay, maybe a tiny bit of meat to keep those iron levels up) and then go!

I'm not getting laid.

I guess it's time to grow a beard and get a suit 2 sizes too small and a pair of pointy shoes!


Some guy slapped one of those ICBC no-cell-phone-and-driving stickers on my car for checking my phone. My car was stopped and the light was red.

Is it unethical to start a fight with an ex about nothing, in hopes of achieving a loss or draw, thereby reminding said ex who seems peculiarily used to abuse that their opinions and self are completely worth respect? ...Asking for a friend.

Raised by wolves?

Dear future husband, I hope that you will understand why you will not meet my family and why they will not attend our wedding. My father emotionally disowned me when I was very young. Nothing I did could win his love. My mother expects me to be single and lonely forever. She already uninvited herself from my future hypothetical wedding. It took a long time for me to put the pieces together and realize that I had to get away from her just to be able to go on dates. My sister only consents to interactions with me when they are on her terms, that is, only when she wants something from me. I hope you understand how hard I've had to fight to get my autonomy so that I can live my life as an adult and do things that normal adults do.


All he wants to do is stay up late and eat junk food. He doesn't want to spend time with the rest of the family, brush his teeth or clean up after himself. I don't think this will change any time soon, because my 16-year old is a cat.


Does a bell ring at the moment of realization? Sometimes. Was talking to a friend who just got back from Oregon (we had lunch there a couple of weeks ago). I asked her if my thinking was old-fashioned or Old World. She's been to Europe more than I have in the last few years. She said it was Old World... Funny, that. At the end of the last relationship that really hurt me, the woman said we are not a good fit. And only now do I get just how plural that "we" is. This is not my place. These are not my people. Despite decades of living here, I will always be a bad fit for North America. Stop trying, let go and leave as soon as feasible. Maybe in the next crash when everything is melting. That's only a couple of years. I'll raise capital, learn another language, rent a place far away. Yeah. Hope beats despair. Better days will come.

Nic fix

It’s been over 10 years since I quit smoking and I still have the occasional smoke in my dreams. I don’t miss the wheezing, while going up stairs or running; however, there are times that I wish I could just have one more for old times sake. With that all said I am so happy I am no longer addicted to nicotine that I will never allow that monkey on my back again. Here’s to smashing your addictions instead of letting them rule you.
