Dating, Meh

Well, dating is more difficult than I recall. Guys are flakier too than I recall. Norm and I had a rough start, smoothed out and now, not sure where it is going, if anywhere. The attraction is there, but not much commitment, to even date or get them or whatever. So he is placed on the back burner and I'm moving on. I've met a few other guys, while Norm flounders around trying to make decisions that he can stick to.

Jimmy was a nice guy. Too young (42), too far away (over an hours drive) and positive. Being positive isn't a deal breaker for me, but combined with the other two things just makes it harder to make it work. While cute, nice, and being a good kisser goes a long way in my book, the attraction just wasn't strong enough to give it another shot with all the other things in play.

Lee is the same age as Norm, 55. Butch as all get out, very close by, only 23 miles away. Sadly, he isn't really 5'9", I'm taller than he is. He was fun to hang with, chat with and meet. Most likely, we will remind friends because of our common interest and close proximity. However his schedule is as screwy as mine.

Danny was much more attractive in person than his pics let on. I enjoyed lunch with him and though he is only 5'7", his personality, body and charm made him seem 6' tall! But atlas, he wasn't feeling it on his part. We have stayed in touch and have tentative plans to hang together as friends in the near future. I can certainly use more friends.

I have a few other guys I'm chatting with and could see some meeting in the near future with them. Jerry (a different one), Donn (travels a LOT for his job), Beau (a sweetheart so far), Gary (hot but distance may be an issue), Mark( a good ole country boy about 60 miles away), Paul (nice guy, seems a bit insecure and distance, yet again), Tim(nice guy but travel a lot too for work), Steven(think he is more into hooking up than dating) and a few others that pop in and out of chat from time to time, but haven't really established anything meaningful enough to pursue a date with them yet.

I've learned that some of these guys online, think nothing of stretching the truth or outright lying about their stats, even careful omissions leave me wondering. My profile is accurate, 100% me. What you see is what you get. I don't hide facts or my intentions for being on the websites or behind old pics. Even in my most current pic from June, I'm 10 pounds lighter now. I chat to find out about them and the validity and truthfulness of what they have stated. I've learned to ask the questions, not assume they will volunteer the info I'm looking for. I'm not afraid to call them out on it either. It only makes sense to make them accountable. If someone states they are only looking for friends, then a pic of your cock or asshole is not necessary. If you are looking for only fun, so be it. If you need to be discreet or can't host, I'm gonna ask why. I'm not a game player, nor bullshitter. I'm honest and upfront and expect, no demand, the same. Everyone wants something or none of us would be there.....lying isn't gonna build anything lasting.
