Re: Where do you usually meet girls/guys?

I think the best place to meet a romantic partner is within the course of daily life, just like we meet our friends. I met my husband while babysitting for the family who he roomed with. That was almost 40 years ago, but things haven't changed that much. Of my two children who are married, both of them met their spouses in their daily lives, not through OLD.

One of them met her spouse through a group that our family belonged to, but they also participated in the same church activities. My other daughter met her spouse while working. He was working at a business next to hers. They got to talking and developed a relationship that turned romantic.

Re: Where do you usually meet girls/guys?

I'm an OLD girl, myself. I used to play in a concert band, and met someone through there, and we dated for a couple years. Other than that, it's been through a set-up, met one guy at a friend's wedding, met through friends. These days, I'm no longer in the concert band, and find that when I go hang out somewhere where I'd like to meet someone (i.e., a bookstore), that ends up not happening (i.e., I have my nose in a book instead). So, OLD is what I've done after my separation, and Bumble is where I met my current guy. I find it easier and more effective because it puts a person in contact with many people in a short amount of time.

Re: Where do you usually meet girls/guys?

In an everyday setting is the best. What you see is what you get and you will have a better idea of who they are. OLD can be the worst but it's debatable. Just depends on the people involved.

Makes me wish that I'd have asked some of those beach gals out back in my college days, instead of trying to impress them with my BMOC status!

I’ve been to a couple of those and gave up when I didn’t meet one person I found even remotely attractive. I’m not a young person but wow everyone there looked like my grandparents. Or of the few people who were my age or younger, just not even close to interesting to me.

Maybe it varies depending on where you are. Although there are generally plenty of attractive people where I live, maybe the kinksters aren’t.

That's a lot like me, although I don't subscribe to the kink!

I'll get all ready to go out, then go take a good long look at myself in the mirror just to make sure I'm all there, literally scaring the crap out of myself in the process, then boldly pronounce, "Not tonight, Charlie! The dog needs my attention more!"

I had a slightly different method.
I would get ready, look in the mirror and think to myself “Some beautiful woman is going to get lucky tonight”
