Subject: RE: BS: Lonely Hearts Club
From: Linda Goodman Zebooker
Date: 15 Jan 07 - 09:02 AM

I was in a marriage for almost 30 years, that was emotionally distant for more than half that time. Now I've been separated for several years with no thought of going back. I'm finding that contemplating the notion of a romance is very appealing, but I know that I don't want to commit to a real relationship again. My nature is to slip into 2nd rank when I'm in a relationship and I can only be my own person when not tied to somebody else. But before marriage, the end point, the driving force, of dating was to find that one special someone and get married. Not that it's not what I'd want, and I know it up front - dating would seem like a very strange thing to do. And yet I'm drawn to the idea -- I think it's how we are wired.

Both my husband and I had been long-term single, neither of us had married before or had live-in partners. We're both perfectly fine human beings. But if you're anti-relationships and not looking for a partner you wouldn't be likely to participate in a lonely hearts thread in the first place, unless you were trying to make life difficult for people!

As to the differences - yes, you might well get it wrong on line with the wrong mental image of the person, but you're more likely to know more about the way they think about stuff and less likely to be distracted by good looks, fashionable clothes and so on (and alcohol) than if you meet someone in a night club. Many relationships founder when two people suddenly realise the attraction between them was mis-placed, many people have told lies when meeting face to face as well as on line - meeting on line is pretty much like meeting in real life. Hey, it IS real life!
But it's good for people who, like us, met zillions of people in a working life without necessarily being able to sort out (a) who might be interested, (b) who might be available and (c) who we might have the courage to approach. Night clubs and singles bars were not the kind of territory we would have been comfortable in, and as a woman I found I was in huge demand and in total control when I came to "audition" all my potential men.

Still think I won the first prize, of course.

gnu, you make an excellent point.

I was becoming invisible in a house full of people before my divorce. When my kids started treating me the way of their father's example, I knew it was time to get out and go back to being a full fledged human being again. It worked, and I got out before we hated each other. Getting involved with someone else again would probably drive that man nuts, because I'm not in any rush to complicate my life with a territorial relationship or marriage.

"Lonely Boy"
(Paul Anka and Joe Dowell)

I'm just a lonely boy
Lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do

I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love

Someone, yes, someone to love
Someone to kiss
Someone to hold
At a moment like this

I'd like to hear
Somebody say
I'll give you my love
Each night and day

I'm just a lonely boy
Lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do

I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love

Somebody, somebody
Somebody, please
Send her to me
I'll make her happy
Just wait and see

I prayed so hard
To the heavens above
That I might find
Someone to love

I'm just a lonely boy
lonely and blue
I'm all alone
With nothin' to do

I've got everything
You could think of
But all I want
Is someone to love

Hahahahaha. I think I'll stick to singing in the shower. And, like I said, I can drop the soap anytime cause there ain't no one to pick it up but me.

Lonely is the subject.... well, I have been lonely for a long time, but, I was lonely for a long time when I was married. I would rather be lonely alone than married and alone.

Do you like sports?
Answer: I glaze over through half the conversations at work.
What is your political affiliation?
Liberal.
Do you like folk music?
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.

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.

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.

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?

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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
