Retired November 2017, living in a trailer, want to explore. But still I want a long term relationship. When we click, I may stick in one place, hopefully where you are. I volunteer with the Red Cross in western North Carolina. I have deployed with them to NC, FL, CA, AL, TX, MO. Who knows where next?

BudFrank comments on Apr 19, 2019:
Yes I have, even without the physical contact. I have had physical attraction (that was not reciprocated in this case), mental connection, and just enjoyed doing things together.

I cannot see your hand if you raise it so if you would give me a yes or no. 😊👍

Has anyone else had or is anyone else having a “short” distance relationship, say 2-4 hours ...
BudFrank comments on Apr 9, 2019:
I tried that several times. There were always other reasons it failed too, but the distance thing was a part of it too. It is wearing on the body, especially for those if us that are,... ahem, more mature. That’s my experience.
Good morning! There are some parts of my body I would like to just take off and put aside when ...
BudFrank comments on Apr 9, 2019:
I agree with the arm when snuggling. I had a knee replacement on my right knee a year ago. I still have pain in it, and it gets tight.
Yay a Monday meme!

I would substitute “Bible belt” instead of “middle America “.

Where are you in NC?
Do you have trouble taking that first step? I don't usually. If I'm attracted to someone and at ...
BudFrank comments on Apr 6, 2019:
I am a little hesitant to initiate. Internet dating has made it easier as well as harder. It’s easier to say something since it’s not face to face and I might not be as embarrassed if I stick my foot in my mouth. On the other hand there are so many rejections or failures to respond per positive response that my self esteem can take a hit if I don’t have the right attitude.
Ilike to think I'm not the worst catch in the world but even I don't think I'm up for a32y/o beauty ...

I live in South Charlotte. Where does your group meet? How often? Goals and activities. Richie
BudFrank comments on Apr 6, 2019:
This group doesn’t have any meetings scheduled. It is simply an online group. If someone wants to set up a face to face group meeting I would think you could suggest it and see what people think. I’m not an admin, just have a little experience with things.
Good morning and happy Friday! A friend of mine posted a question about favorite childhood smells ...
BudFrank comments on Apr 5, 2019:
My parents had a florist shop. I enjoyed the smell of the place. It wasn’t just the fragrance of the flowers. It was the smell of plants and the water they were in, cut stems and the walk-in fridge.
I did this just now....
BudFrank comments on Apr 5, 2019:
Been there, done that, got the t-shirt
Please play along? It’s always fun to see!

BudFrank comments on Apr 4, 2019:
I can sometimes tell by the education level. Those who have not finished high school are suspect. But there are intelligent people who have never attended college. We do exist, and it’s a process of weeding them out, just like weeding out those whose religious views are too far different from ours. You can usually tell through chatting if you’ll need to explain words of more than two syllables. Hope this helps, or is at least an encouragement that the world is not totally ignorant.
Funny thing I told my mom recently... "I feel like I'm approaching my 'best if used by date'".

I hope not. I’m way ahead of you and am not planning to just date much younger women

Good for you having a positive body image and not settling for a guy who won’t accept you!!
I am not sure I want to date right now. Part of me does and part of me doesn't. I have a strong fear...

It’s ok to take time to heal. It’s your choice whether to jump in again. I decided to, butnyoure not me. Make your decision and we will stand by you

BudFrank comments on Apr 3, 2019:
What a life full of crazy! It will be much better soon. Hang in there!
Good morning! Thanks for your input yesterday (and every day)! @MrLizard and I are in the ...
BudFrank comments on Apr 3, 2019:
I can get short with people and not give them thoughtful responses to their questions or comments. I can also withdraw emotionally. But many times I’m able to take a more Zen view and let things roll off me, figure the job will get done eventually, it’s not that important, and/or it’s not worry getting upset about in the long term.
Okay, so here's the really important question... FYI, my answer would be Nathan's Famous from the ...
BudFrank comments on Apr 2, 2019:
Five guys. Maybe it’s the salt or freshness.
Good morning! A good friend of mine recently just won't quit bringing up a subject that I told her...
BudFrank comments on Apr 2, 2019:
If it is a text or email conversation I will simply not respond after a point and after a warning that I’m not going to respond further. If it’s in person I can leave the conversation physically, just walk out after a warning that the subject is closed. Likenother have said, I try not to have that kind of friend in my life.

Welcome to the group, @BudFrank. What's your passion when it comes to volunteer work and community ...
BudFrank comments on Apr 1, 2019:
I decided on the American Red Cross as my volunteer activity of choice. I’ve settled into the logistics role. It’s more behind the scenes, procurement, warehousing, getting and supplying the things needed in a disaster response. I have been in the responses to hurricane Florence, hurricane Michael, California wildfires, and tornadoes in east alabama. I enjoy being able to help out without the intense emotional stress of handling “clients’” problems directly. Logistics is something that is necessary though and I have skills in those areas. When there is no disaster I meet with other logistics workers and we try to get things ready for when the next shoe drops. They just named me logistics Lead for all of the western half of North Carolina. It will be interesting to see how I do encouraging volunteers in their jobs.

BudFrank comments on Mar 31, 2019:
I have been on POF, OkCupid and Tinder. All were free for the basic use including emailing/chatting. I preferred OkCupid because they have a lot of questions you can answer, which gives a better feel for the person. But when emailing I just use real words. You can catch scammers because of their poor English often.

BudFrank comments on Mar 31, 2019:
I believe this site attracts the thoughtful agnostics and atheists, not just those that have no faith but haven’t thought it through philosophically. On the whole, those with no faith in the world may not be more intelligent, but I think the members of this site have an above average intelligence

BudFrank comments on Mar 31, 2019:
Savannah GA and Charleston SC are good cities on the coast that give a nice ante bellum feel. There is a museum in Charleston with the Hunkey, tjenforst sibmarine ever. Farther up the SC is Myrtle beach, the birthplace ofnthendance called the Shag - a form of swing. There are also a few lighthouses on the NC coast such as Cape Hatteras, and the outer banks (re: movie Nights in Rodanthe).
