Our history may have placed us in the category of ‘Single’, but the history of man/woman has always shown people together, in family groups, tribes, villages, towns, cities.
Being alone in the 21st century isn’t horrible. We are mostly safe from wild things, we have the means to support ourselves, there are plenty of positive aspects.
But….. That doesn’t mean we should be alone just because we haven’t found a partner to walk with on the life path.
I tried online dating in the spaces between partners. It works. I met my long term man online, I met my most recent husband online. It works, I can’t deny it, but lately and I should probably say, this time around, it didn’t feel right. I sent a couple of Hellos, but I got the sense that men in my age group are looking for women much younger than themselves. In the email conversations I did have, the topic moved far too quickly towards the bedroom door for me to feel that a genuine connection was being made.
This got me to thinking again about how I wanted to meet people, not just men, but like minded women for friendships too. Other people like me, who are choosy about meeting new people, who want to meet their intellectual equals, who want fun and friendships to see if there is the possibility of a relationship longer term.
Not to meet on blind dates or coffee dates with “Mr or Mrs I like walking on the beach and cuddles on the couch”. But a chance to chat in a group over a really good meal, no pressure, just to see if an interesting conversation, manners, self-respect and respect and care for others has a chance to show itself.
Hey it’s great if attraction hits the other as much as it hits you but in reality that’s the chemistry which brings you together it’s not the ingredient which keeps you together.
So began Plus One Dinners, a membership website for discerning, mature singles who are over 35 yrs old.
If you see yourself, even a little, in my story why not become a member of Plus One Dinners.
We believe that everyone has a match somewhere.
