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!

Dating #101

Well, I've been dating now for a month and things are progressing well. I may have to stop talking about it now though, just to be fair to him. Suffice it to say, we have alot in common - 3 children, 2 marriages, close to the same age, and he's hysterically funny. He's the consummate gentlemen and as far as I can tell has no flaws, so that's new to me. He has everything I have been looking for in a man, so I don't want to jinx it by talking it to death. I'll keep you posted.
