Peril of the Week – Is it Naptime?



One of the challenges of online dating is moving from an online relationship to an offline relationship. Although it is easier staying glued to your computer, in order to be successful, you need to meet face-to-face at a mutually convenient time and place.

They say when a man tells you how he really feels, you should believe it! When a man says he doesn’t want to get married, well he just doesn’t want to get married. So when a friend of mine accepted a cyber-date from a man and he called to say he was a bit on the tired side and requested that they reschedule the date, she should have listened. However, she didn’t want to get replaced by another online prospect in the competitive dating pool and convinced him they should still meet for their casual dinner.

After the entree was brought to the table, she heard a loud noise. No, it wasn’t the table crashing, and the waiter didn’t drop a full tray of plates. The noise she actually heard was from her cyber-date who actually meant what he said, and was sitting across from her snoring loudly. I guess he forgot to take a nap that day before their online date. Sometimes what a man says and what he means are actually true.

    It seems to me that babyBoomers are wrestling with the same issues that 30, 40, and 50 year olds wrestle with. Friendships, dating, marriage, and wellness.

    Thanks for your comment, Liz. Relationships and that complicated boy-girl topic just never goes out of style.
