Shy will know the answer to my language question, but I feel a bit defeated by my recent escapades.

I have firmly determined that for me, OLD doesn't work.

Now I feel fairly certain that fringe online "dating" doesn't work either - and I met too many nefarious men to consider it again.

The men I meet in public places (stores, gas stations, etc) tend to be at least as damaged as the online ones, except a higher percentage of them are lying about their marital status.

So that leaves...nothing.

Hello;

I have the most absurd craziest idea in the world My dear.!!!

Maybe just maybe you should wait until Mr. Prince Charming strolls into your life on his own with no agenda , no baggage and no drama and you just wait whilst you sit under the magnolia tree and sip your mint julep....!!!

Just a thought!!!!

Well when I think of women who are very successful and are also married--and many times it doesn't seem to be possible to have both--it seems like most of the time they are also married to successful men who aren't threatened by them.

I guess we will never know Marina if you have been maybe a model or won the Miss American contest or have been a famous past actress or singer... or well known author or politiican. Hey; You could be Jennifer Lopez for all we know?? Only thing I know Lopez lives in a very affluent neighborhood not too far from me on Long Island.... Well? she had a house there with Marc Anthony.

Maybe you were married to Barry Gordy at one point ....and now you are rich and famous .

If these men are googling you and finding out your are a high profile person and have money and prestige and all of that success then I doubt you can date someone lesser than you or is intimidated by you (just saying)

If someone googled me it would say that I am on facebook and that would be about it. (lol)

"The term 'julep' is generally defined as a sweet drink, particularly one used as a vehicle for medicine. The word itself is derived from the Persian word گلاب (Golâb), meaning rose water."
