Thought you would enjoy this NYT story about one of my online friends whom I met on a dating site. He and I had lots in common but lived 1,,200 miles apart so never connected in person. I ended up with post sm partner who lived in my town. Eight years later we are still happily together. My online friend ended up marrying a woman whom he met on OK Cupid and lived more than 3,000 miles from him. The NYT just wrote about their marriage. I’m happy for them and for me.
I am an incurable romantic and would far rather find Mr Wonderful in Timbuktu than Mr Okay conveniently around the corner. I am resilient, resourceful and patient, and I guess I need him to be these things too. Mr Wonderful is worth the trouble, and he needs to feel the same about me. I imagine it’s a great test of compatibility.
“cherish and delight in your spirit, and ask only that you be your authentic self; to witness, with total acceptance, the radiant, imperfect beauty of that self, of who you have been, and who you are today, and who you will become; and to be radically honest with you, with myself, and with others and to hear the truth you tell me.”

worksforme2: My apologies to you baz and your fellow Australians for sleepy Joe forgetting PM Morrisons name...he forgets names on a pretty regular basis. Ask Scott not to take it personal...

baza: Scott is eminently forgettable so don't worry. Jimmy Carter did the same thing in the 70's with our PM of the time, Fraser.

worksforme2: I made an appointment to get my booster shot for Covid19. I had to answer all kinds of security questions. Never thought that an imposter might show up and try to get my shot.

worksforme2: UPDATE: Booster shot try failed...The booster was a Pfizer. My 1st shots were Moderna, so they would not give me the Pfizer booster. Looks like I'll be waiting for a while.

jerri: worksforme2 member h Probably has some sort of trojan horse on his phone/computer and it is acting up. I know when mine needs to at least be restarted because I will send the same text multiple times when I only sent one.
