Mr Jones This was a club I never expected to be in.
That is so common. Faithful, dedicated, hard working people were thrown a curve ball and believed in forever. It is difficult for some people to change their moral outlook and they wind up feeling very alone and go wanting.
Only after becoming frustrated or seriously depressed, other options gain appeal.
Not sure, probably not. Nothing against all you other guys and guyettes but I an a shy and retiring creature. Mind you the usual caveat remains, any young, blonde nymphomaniacs who made their millions through the brewery business are always welcome!
lessingham, don't be shy. We are all just friends that we haven't met in person. I speculate the people on ILIASM have told more about them-self than than to their current spouse.
The best ice tea in town is at any McDonald's and I am buying. Come one or come all. Yea, I know I live in po-dunk-ville better known as the sticks, the town with very long roads between houses, and out on the open prairie.
A local joke is there are 3 trees east of town and we call it the ____ forest.
I will find a mcdonalds and drink an ice tea to you all them. I think it would be nice to meet up with people who have walked the walk but I would love advice, tips and coping strategies. That would be the best part. Not sure if being advised to get out of the marriage is the avenue for me yet. Would not like to meet as a hook up exercise either.
lessingham, meeting for a drink at McDonald's is a diversion to what we are missing at home. This forum is about the only place real/usable advice is dispensed and most of ILIASM chatter is not going to make much difference improving the marital relationship.
Me going to anyplace is so I get out of the house, get some exercise and meet people that have a pleasant demeanor. It is a lot better than feeling the tension and isolation at home. I also discover new interests when people talk about their life. I hope I do the same for the people I talk with.
I haven't had anything close to a sexual hook-ups but I have connected with a few people and become interested a little bit about what makes then happy. If I actually came across a romantic hook-up I would be very cautious and evaluate the pluses and minuses for both parties. There would have to be several strong benefits and almost no down side for each of us for it to become serious or very involved. I am risk aversive and have been too responsible all of my life and I have to work at having a lighter outlook on life.
BTW, I really don't get the ideal situations to meet new people (other customers)all that often. If I go 3x a week, maybe I only hit it off with less than 1 person a month and that is usually a short encounter and rarely do I see the same person that we had something in common. That is my 3 year experience. I do sort of build a relationship with some of the older employees. My grand kids work at some of the Mickey D's locations so that is another reason I ride my bike there and touch base with them.

petrushka: I was gobsmacked when I heard. This is just not us. In all of 2017 we had 37 murders in the country ..... I think the echo chambers of "social media" have a lot to answer for.

misssunnybunny: petrushka, I thought I read the headline wrong (this stuff happens here, not in NZ). It is frightening the hate that is being spread; it makes my heart hurt.

saarinista: All of us, IMHO, should try to be civil and kind as much as possible in person and online. I actively Tweet (civilly) on political matters and am horrified by the rancor & trolling on both sides of the spectrum, which only inflames unstable people.
