Welcome to my dating blog called 55 and Single!

You guessed it! I'm 55 years old, and I am single (not by my own doing - my much younger husband deserted me and fled to his Bosnian homeland, without so much as a second thought). His advice to me was simply: move on and live your life. So that is what I intend to do, and I am going to chronicle my adventures using various dating websites, blind dates, or whomever I happen to meet that is interested in dating.

I am new to the dating scene (had two marriages: 1st one lasted 28 years; 2nd one lasted 5 years). It's a scary world out here, women, and the rules and expectations have changed dramatically since I was last single. Being a "cougar" also adds to the mix, so I hope you will check back on my progress. Feel free to share your thoughts as I journey alone in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Happy reading!

55 and SINGLE!

Bachelor #4 - In New York - Concrete jungle where dreams are made of?

So I have got a little closer and more personal with Mr. New York. We chatted on Y-Messenger for two hours last night, and I have to give it to him, he knows all the right things to say. Apparently, he is mesmerized by my smile and kept trying to get me to webcam myself so he could see me. But I stalled (I felt a little uncomfortable doing that since I don't really know him yet). We got to know each other's backgrounds, and he said some pretty sweet things, such as, when I look at you, you make my heart melt (sweet, right!); your smile will make a man smash his car; and when I look at you, I see my wife (that was fast). He sounds like a keeper, although he is 3,000 miles away. After all those sweet nothings, I did webcam myself (even though he didn't have one) but it felt like I had a peeping tom or stalker checking me out, so I asked if he didn't mind, I would cancel it. I did find out that he is Spanish and a workaholic electrical engineer. At least, he has a job!! Bonus points!!! He sent me another picture, and even my daughter commented that he was attractive, so that is saying something. He says he will pick up a microphone and webcam soon so we can see each other and hear each other's voices. I'm hoping that this one turns into a hook-up. SCREEEECHHHHH!!!!!

Well, of course, it's too good to be true. I just spent 2 more hours talking to him on webcam, and he proposed marriage. He said I was his future wife. Run....run very fast. What is it with these online men? Sex is the first thing on their minds. Talk about one track! Excuse me, but I don't need to know the size of your member. I don't need you to tell me what you are going to suck? Am I a born-again virgin or what because this stuff is grossing me out. Anyhow, if and when, New York/New York comes and visits, time will tell if he sweeps me off my feet. btw he sent me an up-to-date picture, and he looks like an old, hairy sleazy guy. Yikes. I guess my expression showed my shock because he said that I stopped smiling, and that if he was too hairy, he would shave it all off for me. What? He said he would do anything for me, just as long as I marry him. Then the clincher: he asked if he could watch me sleep. Can we all say together and very loudly: I SMELL A PEEPING TOM/PSYCHO! What am I? A magnet for insane lunatics?!?! Oh well. The 29-year-old DJ is looking really appetizing right now.


  1. eww,eww,and eww!! They think they can get you by sweet talking and telling you how pretty you are. eww! You know that you're beautiful so you don't need these creeps to reinforce that for you....Post a pic for all of us to see. All together now....run like the wind!!!!!!!
