This past week was weird. I had a new plan that I wanted to try, but a wrench got thrown into the works before I had the opportunity to initiate it.
One of the ladies that I contacted the previous week replied on Monday with:
You are younger than I was looking for but I did make it through your profile and thought “why not?” Main reason for looking for older is because I don’t want to end up parenting more kids (although enjoying grands is fine). My big question is where is [YourHometown] in relationship to [MyHometown]?
At 55, she was the oldest lady I ever contacted, but she seemed reasonably compatible otherwise. “Why not?” wasn’t exactly the level of enthusiasm that I had hoped for, but she was only the second lady out of over a hundred that expressed any interest at all. I wrote back, explaining that she and I are a little under an hour travel time apart, but that I have no problem coming to her more often than not. (She happens to live in the same town as Larry.) She read the e-mail the same day I sent it (Monday), but never wrote back. I thought maybe she was just busy during the week, but nothing yesterday either.
I held off on any contact with other women, waiting for this one to write back. Since she didn’t, I’ll be putting my new idea into practice this week.
