For those of you with an active profile: are things really S-L-O-W right now for you? I feel like the comedian tapping the mike asking, "Is this thing on?"

I even activated my profile on POF recently. I already have one on Match. Of course, this is the beginning of my THIRD YEAR online, so I guess I've met every man now in my area.

This is the question. Why was it that it was so easy to make friends M/F under 35? And so difficult Over 35?

I don't find that at all! At 49, I think there are plenty of available men around my age. I get emails all the time. Just met a guy for the 2nd time tonight, he's 49 too. He came out to a party I was helping with. Invited me over for the Superbowl game tomorrow. Woo Hoo! We are going skiing next Friday.

It might just be what type of person you are looking for. I'm quite social and like to get out, matter of fact after the party tonight, when my new guy left, I had three other guys, all single, come over and introduce themselves and have a chat. Seems a lot of people in my area are divorcing in their 40's so they're everywhere! I'm having fun :)

Last week a guy emailed me going on and on about what a great profile I had, how much we had in common, maybe something really good could come out of this. Really nice, very sweet email.

Here's the kicker...I had emailed HIM about a year ago, we bantered back and forth a bit, we exchanged numbers and I never heard from him again.

The only thing that I changed in my profile from then to now was my picture.

So he has continued to email me, very funny, very interesting, I gave him my number (again...) on Friday, here it is Sunday...

Men are weird.

Or might these men just be in need of spine donors? Or lacking b*lls??? Sorry, I can't help but wonder!

Yup, slug-slow and it ain't pretty.

The proof is the lack of scintillating stories on these boards, dontcha think? I'm guilty. I haven't posted much. (Today I finally posted on Dating Game, but only because I was pis%ed off.)

Hey, anyone out there who's interested can download my book Middle Age Confidential: My Life as a Date, for the rest of the month free, free, frrr-eee.

Let me know if I've captured the Internet experience--it's fiction. Well, sort of.
