Now that Mike and I are best buds, I ventured back onto OKC for one week.
How on earth does anyone find anyone this way? SO MANY OF THESE GUYS ARE JUST RUDE!

I’ve known people who are shy about admitting that they met their spouses online. That’s Crazy!  If you found your life partner online, YOU’VE HIT GOLD!

I heard from a guy who wants to meet me after reading a good deal of my blog. It was a pleasant enough connection. Then I noticed that his profile indicated that he was mostly interested in sex.

I told him I’d been there done that and I wasn’t interested in hooking up. He said he wasn’t blah, blah, blah. But then after hearing my COSTCO audio post, the subject of sex comes up. I told him to steer clear. But no…BeFunky_davidokctext1.jpgI’ve never even spoken to this guy, let alone given ANY indication that I wanted to get laid!!!



REALLY? How generous of you! Talk about getting ahead of yourself!

My son said I should give him a break, saying “He made a mistake and apologized! That’s what pisses me off about women sometimes. They stereotype and assume the worst sometimes.”

He apologized because he was back peddling and thought he lost his shot at getting laid. DUH!

I told my son that when I give them a break, IT’S ALWAYS A MISTAKE! If I learned anything from Mike, (BFF Mike) it’s to raise the bar! I ended up agreeing to talk to the guy on the phone. But I had a bet with my son that the guy wants to get laid. I should have put money on it.

It isn’t long before the term Friends With Benefits comes up. Then he goes on to tell me about a failed sexual encounter he had on a first date. DUDE! WTF!!!!

This may be why (unlike gay men) some lesbians became lesbians because men drove them to it! I didn’t even know that was a “thing” until a friend told me that a number of her girlfriends were women who made the leap because they were fed up with men! If I had any inclinations in that direction, I would have dipped my toe in the water by now.

I adore men! But why is it so heard to find one who is both available and not an idiot?

It’s like going to a restaurant with lots of food. But they are out of everything except Franks and Beans, Tuna Noodle Casserole and Shit on a Shingle (aka Chipped Beef)! Suddenly I’m not so hungry after all.

I did learn a valuable lesson today however. Get the phone conversation out of the way early. He made a leap in assuming I was physically attracted to him. But after talking to him? Let’s just say, he’s not my type and leave it at that.

Yes. This guy reads my blog and may find this post insulting. I’m simply returning the favor.

Yours truly,

I was contacted by OkCupid a month after signing up, telling me I was in the top 5% response rate and asking my secret. I was stunned. I was in my 50's! Beats me! It's not as though I posted racy photos or I was plagued by blinding beauty! However it served it's purpose,in terms of finding dates,but finding a mate? Not so much. Along the way, I had some pretty nutty encounters, some more lethal than others. While my blog started as a retelling of these amorous tales, it's morphed into a myriad of stories, including many from my time on the planet. They range from working with the amazing Henry Winkler, auditioning for Nadia Boulanger, an attempted assault by one of Al Capone's retired former henchmen, and offering a homeless man (who was also a convicted murderer) a place to stay for the night. While most of this is older material but I'm considering penning epilogues or postmortems from my post pandemic, post #metoo perspective, as well as sharing more. So many stories to tell! Thanks for stopping by! Cheers!
