I also lost my dad and adopted a dog. Yet divorce left me stunted, and very cautious about dating. Thus, dating has become increasingly intentional. I continue to make so many mistakes despite my years of experience. But mistakes have led to some interesting adventures. I once dated a waiter-artist who was clearly a hoarder and possibly a Republican; a lifeguard-improvisational-comedian who rode a fixie and liked to call me Mrs.
I learned that the quickest way to lose a friend is to date one, and the quickest way to ruin a group of friends is to date within the circle. I look at her and I wonder, how can she be having a tough time? She went on Craigslist, Yahoo Personals, and Match. And then my Obama-loving mama met a thrice-married Libertarian sheep rancher who lived outside of Lodi, and they fell madly in love.

Oh, and as for that attractive date? It went well and she excitedly texted me the following day, but then shortly fell off the face of the Earth soon after. I appreciate your input! Some parts agree, some parts choose not to, but regardless really appreciate a well thought out response!! Because whether she is 21 or 41, she might be thinking the same about you or too afraid to just initiate after thinking too much about all of these things as well…as we all seem to these days.
While statistics and masses affect likelihoods and stereotypes at large, you never know one on one just what that one person has inside of them and what they are waiting for or afraid of or drawn to. To any guy over 25, these niceties are code for money. And that is all day every day in SF. Point of view being women dating men. And they are out there! Real deal love is the shit. This was nice to read. I am a36 yr old female just out of a long term relationship that I spent my valuable last bits of procreatic years with.
Zero daddy issues, but for some reason always dated men a decade older than me with their own children and now…. Now I find myself moving to San Francisco in 1. I am not a dating ap or a one night stand girl.
