    This is in response to the lonely teen thread.

    There are a few of us, who have never been married/lived together and do get a bit lonely too. I'm just too tired after work to even consider going out.

    I'm sorry because this is going to sound like I'm some giant *******, but when I saw this I had flashes of early AOL run through my mind. It actually made me laugh. Just to keep up with appearances....

    a/s/l?

    I've not heard that little nugget for ages!

    What about dating sites, iMac-Knight? If you've not had a chat with your friends about it, then confide in them and that's a great way to meet people.

    That's my only advice, anyway. Best of luck.

    *Scratched head*

    As to dating sites, they cost money that I don't have. That said, it's been way too long since the last date. Trying to remember who was president then...

    Yes there are. That's why I come here and take it out on the rest of you. :whiplash:

    Still, if you're lucky enough and outgoing, this site has been responsible for quite a few hook-ups between forum members. :)

    Somehow, I don't think that she wanted you to go after her when she made the suggestion. :p;)

    Trust me, I'm not. In my old age, my curiosity level is just higher than it use to be.

    BV and jess, I'm not hitting on you. :)

    I turn 45 this November. So, old as the hills to many here. Young at heart to others. Someone posted a poll about ages a month or so ago where 40+ was designated as stone age. :D

    Also a 40+ wrinkly in the twilight of his years, but not very lonely - with pretty long breaks between relationships these days. I think the only solution is to get yourself out there, but not to try too hard.

    I'm not sure what you do for work, but having it run your life while you're salaried really doesn't make sense especially in the position you seem to be. If you're self employed or a senior executive, etc the story might be slightly different but still, you should make time to go out if you crave a relationship. That, or find someone you like at work - although this might not work out all the time.

    Yes, but in London...

    London, UK, that is. Not London in Arizona, Ontario, Arkansas, Indiana, Kentucky, Texas, West Virginia or even Belize. ;)

    haha I also recall being in a chat room, the a/s/l would pop up, I'd answer and be riddled with IMs. Hell, all I had to do was enter a room and type "female" and the IMs would come. This was pre-Dateline NBC of course.
    Trouble. ;)
