    True. :cool: And they (or in this case) he also has no reservations about stating clearly that he thinks taking things slowly is a good idea. (Although, to be difficult, I don't believe that it's chronological, but emotional, age that's at issue, here.)

    Doesn't mean I have to agree with or acquiesce to his stance. He let me know straight up where he's coming from. There's nothing unclear about, "I'm interested, but I think we should take things slowly." At least I have no problem interpreting that exactly as stated. I'm so over reading into what guys say. What they say is, is. I can't read anybody's mind, nor would I attempt to.

    It's up to me to decide how to process his statement and actions and how/whether to react to them. I also get to decide what to do if things don't come along in a way that's comfortable for me.

    If there's one good thing about being older, it's that you know that, pretty much no matter what happens emotionally, it won't kill you. :)

    There used to be a match-ups, fix-ups and blind date thread. Will go look for it and see if there's anything useful there. :car:

    Que sera sera.

    But I can tell you that everybody I've asked about him (and we're talking waaaay up in the double digits, here) thinks he's just as a good a person as I do. So we shall see. :)

    His most recent status said he wishes all he ever had to do is fish, hunt, sleep and occasionally have a beer. I like that. heh

    Okay. Too lazy to search after two failed attempts.

    What I will say is that T, the guy my Mom wanted me to marry, is both the nicest and most boring guy I ever dated. My Mom picked someone she thought would take care of me and keep me safe. Blech! I'm not sure Moms can see straight.

    Well if I were to get married I would go for boring and safe.

    Why? If you start out bored, it can only go downhill from there. Not saying you should marry a "bad boy," but still. The two best husbands I know (of) are both reformed bad boys. Who knows?

    Well to me boring = no danger. Excitement = fear of losing. If you fear it there's a reason. If you are comfortable that's good :)

    I hear ya.

    To me comfortable can = complacent. Excitement can = no one can come between us, even after all these years.

    Haven't experienced it, but I have seen it, in my parents who've been married 61 years. 61. A long time. Nothing boring about either of them, especially back in the day.

    ETA: disclaimers.
