semi boring man seeks beautiful woman
Mood:  chillin'
Topic: online dating

My wife passed away almost 4 years ago.  I wasn't interested in dating until maybe a year ago.  Where does a man meet women?  It has been a long time since I dated anyone.  I don't drink so the bars weren't the answer.  So I filled out a couple of profiles at some online dating sites.  Picture and a paragraph, only problem is my picture says fat guy.  Yea I had gained some weight since my wife died thanks to papa johns and getting lazy.  How do you discribe yourself in a way that attracts people?  Semi boring mans seeks beautiful woman should have been the title but I didn't think that would reach many women.  I have chatted with a few women but nothing that proved interesting ever developed.  I know the guys out number the women on these sites so it wasn't all that suprising.  I decided that online dating wasn't going to work for me.  When bored I would look at profiles just to see if someone posted anything different.  Most of the profiles are cookie cutter entries.  When I found something different I would email the person about their profile.  A few weeks ago I came across a profile on yahoo.  Nice looking woman, auburn hair and blue eyes but her profile stood out.  I emailed her about it and too my suprise she responded.  We chatted a few times and exchanged some emails.  She actually seemed interested.  Thoughts of her became a regular part of my day.  She is having some issues in life so talking with her is difficult at times.  It is so frustrating when you want to learn about someone and you get bits and pieces of information that leave you with more questions than answers.  Will this story have a happy ending?  Only time will tell.

Lessons in Stupidity
Mood:  chillin'
Topic: Life in general
Why would someone call their blog lessons in stupidity?  Because that seems to be my life right now.  Fast approaching 49, single but happy.  I laugh at myself almost daily for the stupid things I do or say.  I'm not stupid or at least I don't think I'm stupid, I just do stupid shit.  I do know I'm way too nice and that gets me taken advantage of from time to time.  So here starts lessons in stupidity.
