Thinking about Resolutions

December 23rd, 2006 at 11:41 am

I have been giving throught to my New Years Resolutions for 2007 and have been coming up with a list, in particular financial resolutions.
As a widow of thirteen years I do from time to time get lonely and decide that it is time to join a site for romance such as EHarmony or match.com. It is my resolution not to join such a site next year. They do not work in the first place and I only go on a rollercoaster ride, stirring up my peaceful existence. I am trying to convince myself that I do not need a man at all..........(however, if any of you happen to know a sweet older bachelor, I am all ears......LOL).

    Where is bookie when we need him? I can not imagine what it is like to be alone with a husband. I hope I never find out!

    Ido understand. I've been a widow for six years and I still find myself thinking that my partner will walk in the door any minute.

    I can certainly sympathize. Although I am divorced not widowed my marriage came to a surprising end. When you are not expecting divorce and you think all is fine you sure find yourself feeling as though you are widowed. I've also tried eharmony and match but it never worked for me either! I wish you all the luck and the best in the new year. I'm sure you will find someone!

    Thanks for those comments. Cindilee, maybe 2007 will be our year. I can just imagine our Princes Charming galloping down our roads (lanes, streets, highways, etc).

    Merry Christmas and a Happy and Joyous New Year! Things come into our lives when we least expect them!WinkSmile Be patient!

    Have you tried free online personals? My SIL uses Yahoo and MSN personals and seems to have a new date each weekend (usually two to three each week!). No keepers yet but I don't think she has had to pay much for groceries for the past couple of years (all the free meals and such). Best of luck to you in the new year!

    You know, I'm starting to have these thoughts myself.... Odd. Not something I've had to think about or thought I'd be thinking about until now.

    I too wonder what my future will be like. Whether or not I would be living the rest of my life by myself? Yes or no, how would that work out?

    On one particularly slow day, I did check out eharmony.com. Big Grin I actually went through their battery of questions, and was largely impressed by it, compared to other sites that seems a bit more shallow.

    It didn't yield any matches in my area though. Hehe. Oh well, I suppose it's still a bit too soon for me to "worry" about something like that anyway....

    In any case, I can relate and sympathize, but maybe you can take heart in knowing you're not alone on this?

    Thank you for all of your replies. For purely financial reasons I am leaving the "romance match sites" alone. I've traveled to Toronto and NYC in my wild search, as well as places closer to home. There was a time I could afford these jaunts, but they are just not cost-effective because paying a thousand dollars for a trip and all it entails just doesn't work for me. But for many who are younger I know they are worthwhile. I believe that men receive many more hits from women on these sites, rather than vice versa. There is often just no response whatsoever. It can also be heartbreaking if something starts and then falls apart. The whole issue of "internet love" is interesting because we all know of someone that it worked for when the couple married when meeting online. But I believe I probably stand a better chance of being hit by an outhouse in a tornado and I have to accept it............Smile

    hit by an outhouse in a tornado! LOL
    Marymara, I don't worry much about meeting someone really. I very much believe in destiny and fate and believe that if there is someone for me they will find their way to me. I'm very happy with my life but like you get a little lonely somtimes. More than anything, for me anyway, it is the companionship I miss in a relationship. Having someone to talk to etc. I'm sure there is someone out there somewhere for you!

    cindilee, you are a sweetie! I find that when it comes to companionship a site such as this can provide a WHOLE LOT!!!
