My son used to try too hard...flowers on the first date etc. It ALWAYS scared the ladies away. Try to make some friends FIRST. Look for your local events and gatherings,etc. Then when you see someone of interest,DO NOT go out of your way to impress, makes you look desperate. (even if you are there's no reason for anyone to pick up on that. It should be your little secret.) Just be yourself and make a real effort to genuinely be interested in what the girl is all about. After all, you DO want to know as much about them as you can so you know if YOU'RE interested in THEM, RIGHT? And don't tell your whole life story right away or talk about how lonely you are. Let them see and hear the good things about you it's a better way to find out if you are compatable without all the negativity. After trying the positive approach (even when meeting potential friends) you may be surprised! And each time this works better and better because with every good response... you will get more and more comfortable and confident. This may take several encounters before you get to that place, but if you don't get frustrated and give it a chance you may find a whole new level of happiness. Hope this helps...I'm 52 and married but have been where you are and this worked for me. NO NEGATIVE, I'M LONELY, DEPRESSED talk. ONLY talk about the things you like(or even used to like) and the good things about yourself. Good Luck!View Thread
I think the best reply is to get out and try things people your age are interested in. DON'T GIVE UP! If one activity doesn't get any results... try another. Not only will you meet people along the way, but rather than looking for a companion, you may make some lasting friendships...male or female.... friends are priceless and they also tend to help you get connected with others through people THEY know. Each time you make a friend, you open up a whole new network of new people just for the simple fact that these new friends know others you would never have the opportunity to meet otherwise. It's the domino effect,see? Let me know how things turn out, you seem to be a good person and with patience... not only will you experience new things, but soulmate or not, you are bound to make some great friends in the process!View Thread
Thanks for replying,didn't actually expect a response, first time on this page! We are abstaining as of the moment so I have no symptoms at all. We also made him an appointment before I began my web search, it's in a week from now. Just thought maybe I could get some input from people who may have had this problem. He's going to stop the cream for a couple days and if the white areas go away.... it was the cream. If not, well then that's scary. If you find out anything else related to this... PLEASE let me know. I checked all the sites for yeast infections and there is no mention of the discoloring. Only says if not better, see the doc, so I figured I'd ask the public. More times than not you get way better info from people who have been through similar situations, so I thought it was worth a shot! THANKS AGAIN and keep me posted if you find out anything else. Nice to know people that I don't even know are willing to take the time to help. GOD bless you for your input. If you're a dad.... Happy Father's Day, you rock!View Thread
