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.
This the "Shoutbox" -- basically a site-wide, group chat. (It's only visible to members.)
petrushka: Thank you! Had a great party with the boardgamers group (and BBQ, cakes and cards!)

worksforme2: It is a sad day here in my small town, the only cinema has closed...it's probably close to 30 miles to get to one now...

worksforme2: Since our esteemed governor has declared a state of emergency here in NC (a total of 12 cases so far) the hording of toilet paper has begun. Is diarrhea a part of covid 19? I see Lowes and Home Depot have quick install toilet retro fit bidets.

petrushka: I've no idea what it is with the toilet paper hoarding. I walked out of a supermarket yesterday and saw a woman with the jumbo sized trolley and some 4x 18 roll packs of toilet paper. Nuts. Completely nuts. Incidentally, a bidet is definitely the way to go

petrushka: Even her little 5 or 6 year old was questioning her purchase!

petrushka: One of my favourite quotes for the last 30 years: "don't ever look a sheep in the eyes, the intellectual vacuum may suck your brains out". Well, let's all drink to the sheeple! (besides, alcohol is a good disinfectant).

frednsa: so...............i'd like to tell her when she "attempts to placate me": have you ever been invited to a party where you knew for certain that you WEREN'T wanted ?

worksforme2: Former Miss Hawaii tests positive. Being the gallant lad that I am I have offered her the use of my guest bedroom to "shelter in place"..

worksforme2: Hey tamara68, there is a covid19 positive cat in Belgium, watch out for it.
Mar 30, 2020 14:05:56 GMT -5
tamara68: @worksforme I think I have to be more careful for all infected people. Most likely I already have Covid19
Apr 1, 2020 3:29:42 GMT -5
worksforme2: tamara68.....it's been a couple weeks since you posted you may have the covid19 virus. hopefully you are feeling better and are on your way to renewed health
Apr 11, 2020 5:31:38 GMT -5
tamara68: @worksforme thanks, yes I am feeling better. How is it in the USA?
Apr 14, 2020 1:57:26 GMT -5
worksforme2: some better and some worse,..virus seems to be slowing down, but people are beginning to refuse to stay inside,...worst thing I see is Biden leading in the election poles,...but that could be fake news

mirrororchid: Politics? Is that what we want to happen here?
Apr 21, 2020 6:21:24 GMT -5
petrushka: Certainly not American style politics. Toxic echo chambers.
Apr 23, 2020 16:21:52 GMT -5
petrushka: However, I feel that sexual politics, including political moves that impact the relationships between gender (misogynist, misandrist, etc) definitely deserve room in this context.

fred: just calculated that i've spent somewhere near 19,000 days (& nights) as a "rejectee".AND that allows for 2,000+ days (& nights) on business travel apart from her. i've chosen to "stay" .....would never do that again, and can't as you see doing the math
