I don't like being 42!!! I just joined a dating site, Match with the urging of my friends. So I took the plunge.

It's making me depressed to see the undesirable men that are contacting me. I don't want the man with 3 kids still under 18 years of age. Take care of your children then date. Don't contact women with no children then drone on about how your kids rock. It's not a good fit. I want my own family not rent-a-family.

I'm taking my dog with me on these walks and I will make as much of an effort in my appearance as they are with planning their dates. Dog is the escape hatch. I actually told them I appreciated the low maintenance date and won't have to worry about what to wear. I don't think they got the sarcasm. I am actually going to come with my own drink to underline how cheap they are.
They always want to go running with me. Do I have cheap date stamped on my forehead now that I am 42?. I get a 42 year old date.

So depressing has this experience been that I bought a ticket to the opera for myself for tomorrow. Luckily, I
