Actually Alice, it's a lot more. Great source for musical and all sorts of other info. Debate club--if people can take it when it gets rough. Great humor (obviously not all--and sometimes inadvertent). I'm sure there are other aspects I've left out.

Music brings us all together--lonely or not.

It all depends on your preferred relationship.

Many &/or platonic we already have that.

One on one and platonic - beware posting e-mail/snail addresses -spammers trawl these sites for fodder.

One on One closer - I would suggest you arrange to meet at a festival (best) or club where you will have a common interest and something to be there for if the meeting is not all you expect.

Oh and if you do want a certain "blending into the melee" so as not to make the rendezvous obvious to lurkers (etc) don't do as I do

Kendall and I met through the Mudcat. We were both posting to a particular thread and I posted something that piqued his interest. He PMd me, I replied and it went on from there.

Why not try it if there is a 'Catter whose posts you find interesting? You might not end up with a romance but you surely would make more friends.

Internet connections are like charity shops. Everything in there was thrown away by someone, so, look it over very carefully. There's no telling where it's been!

Now, don't let that deter you, I once got a pair of LLBean loafers, brand new in a Goodwill shop for $5.00.

Connecting across the ether is not really new. I went to a short lecture on the history of electronic communications.

It transpired that when the early telegraph was operating across the USA the operators could recognise each other by the way they keyed morse code. So at night time when the network was not so busy some of them began chatting and found out some were male and some were female. (I assumed this was something to do with time differences too).

The rest was history.

I found my husband via the internet (not Mudcat) .. we met six years ago this week. Still totally soppy about each other.

The advantage to a lonely hearts thread is that you can be reasonably sure the people on it are at least looking for a relationship, whereas people contributing to a "normal" thread may be doing just that. You can't, however, be sure that the people on any thread are single or available or what they seem to be or even honest!

Good luck to all of you who are lonely and want to change things ...may this be the year you find what you're looking for.

To avoid problems down the line, don't be afraid to ask the tough questions, such as:

Do you like sports?
What is your political affiliation?
Do you like folk music?
Who are your heros?
Are you single? Prove it.
and:
Do you like lobster?

Most people would do a runner if you ask them if they like folk music!

Also, how on earth do they prove they are single?

If they say they are divorced, ask to see the decree. If they are merely separated or never married, tread carefully.

My impression is that most people prefer to take their potential partner's word for it. They don't want to know that he/she is not available - that would present them with a dilemma. They would rather just carry on doing what they want to with a 'clear' conscience.

selling it on consignment. He got it when it was offered years ago as a promotional item. I wonder what if finally sold for.

I can see what Kendall means - I got caught up with a married guy some years back (something that is totally against my own principles) - didn't know he was married as he said that he was single. That left me in a very unpleasant situation. After something like that you get to being less trusting.

At least one of the 'never married' men that I know does have a long-term partner, although they do not live together. This is where 'treading carefully' is advisable. Other women seem happy to believe the 'just old friends' story - people tend to believe what they want to believe - and then wonder why his 'old friend' refuses to speak to them any more.

I am considering becoming homosexual. As I am celibate, it really wouldn't matter. And, I hear they have excellent parties and good grub. Not that I am the party type, but, I do like a good scoff.

Are there any rules I should be aware of before I jump ship? I mean, if I switch from not jumping girls to not jumping guys, I want to make sure that I don't jump into the fire from the frying pan, eh!

Any advice?

LOL gnu.

You may have to do a total makeover of your home and, probably, your wardrobe.

Actually, you might find yourself in favour with the women who just want a male friend who can come somewhere toward undestanding their interest in clothes etc. You may also find yourself being chased by the women who want to 'convert' you.

Have fun.

What is your political affiliation? I hate politics

Do you like folk music? Yes I do. I was raised on it.

Who are your heros? My father (Kendall)

Are you single? Prove it. Yes. Ask my father. :-)

Do you like lobster? LOVE it. Maine girl born and bred. (though I've never bred and I would like to keep it that way).

The only problem I found in using textual intercourse is that you fill-in the visual gaps and the meeting will reveal the visuals are not automatically what you imagine.

If you were in a singles bar/club or at a dance/festival the visuals would tell you a lot of what you select for. The thing about milling around in a physical environment is that you filter at a distance. With text you begin to form a relationship (at whatever level) before you start to filter. Nothing wrong with that, but you have to acknowledge this. And approach accordingly.

Liberal.

Yes.
Who are your heros?
Captain Morse. I adore the old man.
Are you single? Prove it.
Yes. Why? I am not interested in marrying you.
Do you like lobster?
No but I am not against serving it.


I am perpetually single. Any man I have ever dated has had to fight against the tide re: the M word. So, Kendall is right. If you are looking for a permanent mate, a n always single man or woman is not likely territory.

gnu - First rule of your makeover: Don't drop the soap. But with a voice like yours you should at least be offering phone sex.
