Hi CP, good to see you here again. So did you find anyone interesting on your highway 101 trip? HOpe you found the scenery and food as delightful as the Californian girls with their all year tan and brilliant white smiles.


Hey Bonnie:
Didn't find anyone interesting but the scenery was amazing. Monterey and Carmel were beautiful. Hopefully you go the pictures I sent.

So the real question is - are the jokes all about the bottled blonds or the real blonds - lol - fake or real? So I couldn't let that one go and seems as a newbie you have to send one joke out sooner or later

Hi Bonnie,

How are you this weekend? Hear any good lawyer jokes lately lady? lol.

Can I interject something here?

In California (Southern California) we like to say about the women here: Blonde Hair, Blonde Skin, and Blonde Teeth, lol. It's a blonde thing since 3 out of 4 are bottle blondes. And from being a natural blonde myself, I can tell who is natural and who is not, lol.

I think it's less about the distance and more about the connection. If something is there I think the distance can be overcome. It probably wouldn't last forever and someone would have to compromise but I think it can work if the two people are willing.

Hi CP - you have also become a non-paying ghost I see.... lurking in the dark corridors of the forum.... waiting for your post to appear....lol
We've missed you, your intelligent input on the forum, not to mention that se*xy pic....



Hey Min:

Yeah, I stopped paying for a bit because I won't be around enough in the next couple of months to post a lot. Nice to see that you have a similar view on the LDR thing. It's tougher but it can work for the right couple. They took my 'sexy' pic off when I stopped paying. I'll try to get it back up. Guess you have to pay to play

CP! There you are! Nice to see you here again.
That has always been exactly my way of thinking about LDRs. I've said the same thing many times on other threads.

Hi Bonnie,

Yes to both your questions. And more - if following my heart to be with a guy meant that I could no longer pursue my vocation, I wouldn't do it. I know form experience that having my own job and income, my own projects, achievements and pride in what I do, is a very important factor in my life and without it, I'm miserable and no fun to be with.


YOU are my kind of girl..man at best is only the spice in our life..and without them we could still go find our own brand of happiness..and a happy person attracts others too..jsut be happy and the rest takes care of itself.

Hi SugarKane - just took a peek at your profile - in a non-lesbien friendly kinda way..! LOL
Did so cuz you only live about 4 hours from Luxembourg. I used to live in Holland (in Wassenaar and then Hoofddorp) from 1990-1995. I love Amsterdam and I go back every chance I get! I still have friends there.
Drop me a line - maybe next time I come over we could meet and have a drink and exchange MM stories! LOL - just kidding (about the MM stories, not about the drink!)
Re LDRs.... whew.... I've posted a lot about this already. I've been there, done that and it didn't work that one time (the distance wasn't the issue) but being the eternal optimist I still think it can work provided both parties are willing to do what it takes.

Wow...another great topic Bonnie. Although the last post was in May - I couldn't help but put a post too this. I relate totally to your theory of being disconnected because of being away from home for so long, to then return to see you have grown to much to fit back in to the same pace. I've been away and technically still am (home is 1 hour from where I live now). My spirit is to want to pick up and move somewheres new & exciting but my responsible side is staying committed to provide a family root system for my children. Seeing a little bit of both sides, I've deciede I want them to have a rooted place and a spirit to fly to adventure knowing they will always have somewhere to return if they fall. As you might sense from this post, I am very devoted to my children and find it a struggle to meet someone who can not only handle that but truly "understand" it. Color

LDRs are HARD. Been there, done that! You really CAN find TRUE LOVE anywhere in the world, ANYWHERE . . . but should you?

I was devoted to a great guy for about 4 years, he lived several hundred miles away. It ended quite sadly, I won't go into details here.

Bottom line, if you have small children and are not moblie at this time in your life, or if the object of your affections isn't mobile, DON'T GO THERE!!!!!!! Your heart will BREAK!!!

Unless, that is, you actually PREFER the distance to the in-your-face dailiness of an intimate relationship. For some people, distance provides the perfect air-space so that both parties can remain independent and "free." To each his own . . .

I believe they can work if both individuals want them to. It can be difficult, but with technology today with e-mail, chatting on-line and phones you can easily stay in touch. These can be helpful in keeping things together until you can meet again.

Hmmm I want a warm body..

I already HAVE relocated to go to school....and I am middle aged....so given that, what's the difference between relocating for love and/or a job? However, I must admit that 30 years ago I relocated for love and lived to regret it....the man used and abused me...and the only good thing I have to show from that relationship are 2 grown, well educated, successful children! But.....don't we all believe that he that has loved and lost lives to love again?

well, Spanky, I have been thru LDR and it takes alot out of the couple and is the true test of the relationship. Unfortunately email was not invented then, so we landed up writing everyday and when we finally met again, it just did not seem possible. Sadly he never married while I moved on, it takes a diehard romantic to believe in LDR but sometimes out of sight is out of mind and absence does not necessarily make the heart grow fonder..
