I've been following the posts on a few of these boards off and on for the past 10 years and thought I would stop lurking and post a bit more.
I feel I have gotten to know a few of the regular posters here and you all seem like great women with lots to offer.
A bit about myself:
I'm 49, divorced since 2002 with a 22 year old son that no longer lives with me. I'm originally from Holland, but grew up in a Canadian prairie province from the time I was 3 until 1987. I came to Vancouver to visit a friend and fell in love with the city. Lived downtown, close to the beach and Stanley Park and had a couple of jobs; one for a commercial credit reporting agency and then got a second job when Starbucks came to town.
I ended up moving back to holland after visiting with family and meeting my husband in Amsterdam. My son was born there and we all moved back to Canada in 1992. We lived in a suburb of Vancouver up until a couple of years ago. I really missed living downtown and was able to move back. I have had a few shorter and one longer relationship over the years, but am now single and working downtown.
Hoping to be able to add to some of the discussions here.
