Open relationships
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 18, 2018:
My first instinct is to say "oh hell no" but it is really more complicated that that. It depends on so many other circumstances. I would say I'd consider any variation, but it all depends on too many other factors to make a blanket statement.
I just realized I only have my best friend...literally 💔
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 18, 2018:
Not everyone has a bunch of friends, however you can broaden your social circle. Check Meetup.com. You my find people who share your interests that way. Take some classes. Get involved politically. I made some friends through a Humanist organization in my area that I found through Meetup.com I tend to be an introvert. I have a few friends, my kids (who are all older than you are), several coworkers who I chat with, and.... and.... and.... this group!! But for face to face contact, I got my nails done today and picked up lunch at a drive through and did some shopping. Wow, what an exciting day!

Ladies I have question for you. What do you think about facial hair? Is a mustache sexy? Is a ...
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 17, 2018:
I like well groomed, and I like natural, quick and easy. Personally I don't understand shaving the head, but if it makes you happy go for it. I think sexy comes from within, a man who is comfortable with himself and interested in me is likely to have a sexy vibe to me. I like beards if they are soft, the brillo pad feel is tough to get close to. The duck dynasty style I don't get, it think it is taking creative anachronism to an extreme. If your hair is long but you have a huge bald spot I think the long hair just looks sad. But again, what makes you feel good. Now if a guy sports a mullet I don't think I'm even going to get close enough to talk to him. Everyone I've ever known with a mullet has not been someone I wanted to associate with.
What are your thoughts on psychological disabilities?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 16, 2018:
that is such a huge, multifaceted subject. I work in disability claims and maybe 15 to 20% of our claims are mental health related. One thing I hear over, and over, and over again is that it is so darn hard to get an appointment with a qualified mental health specialist. And now I'm wondering if the % of claims denied is higher for MH claims becasue it is so hard to get appropriate treatment.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 16, 2018:
I remember listening to "Lunchtime with the oldies" on the radio while I was at Ft. Meade, Maryland. I was in my early 20s, and they played a song that I loved in high school. I was pissed about that for days! And that was the first time I realized it was really all downhill from there. My middle daughter freaks out about wrinkles and turning 30! I told her "really? Every wrinkle and grey hair I have has your name on it" I may be old, but I don't care! I'm OK with it. My mom died at 45, she never got to meet her grandchildren or see any of her kids get married or any of that other cool "getting old" stuff. Your age is just a reflection of the number of trips around the sun your have made. Don't let your age define you. I may be 60 and my knees make some odd noises and yes I have a few gray hairs but dammit, I put the time in for it. I earned it! I am happy about it because so many don't get that opportunity. JMHO ( or not so H)
A follow up: What makes you a terrible partner?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 16, 2018:
I've never asked why someone wanted to break up with me, things just didn't work out. One guy decided he'd rather live close to his grandson than stay in Nebraska, and I get that. One guy decided his stuff was too important to him and he couldn't afford to move it. I haven't had a relationship move very far forward in years. As for the faults I know I have, I'm bossy, go figure right. I like my alone time. I tend to identify the elephant in the room. I sometimes cogitate on issues. I have immense patience until I want it NOW! And I think I snore, but I'm not sure, the cats don't complain.

In my opinion, the only reason that people fear death is the religious hellfire and damnation myth....
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 16, 2018:
Nahhhhhh. Think of a teenaged boy, all hopped up on testosterone and still building synapses. Given that young males have a much higher rate of accidents than the rest of the population, they have limited fear of death because they lack experience and the testosterone and deficiencies of synapses. But fear of death is what keeps most of us from doing crazy things like experimenting to see how high we can go on a rickey ladder or other dumb stuff. If I didn't have a healthy fear of pain and disfugurement I'd drive a hell of a lot faster than I do now. Well, tickets, but I haven't had one in a few years. (note to self, slow down in West Point, NE, The cop in that town doesn't have enough to do.) I'm not afraid of death, I do fear pain and suffering so I try to maintain homeostasis. The other fear people have is unfinished business. Becauase I learned early that life is fragile (mom died at age 45) I try not to have unfinished business. I tell my kids frequently that I love them and how happy they make me. I have forgiven who I need to forgive and if I shuffle off this mortal coil tonight I'm OK with that. And if I'm not online tomorrow by noon someone call my kids that the cats might need to be fed.

I'd love to have a travel partner, male preferred by a compatible female would be appreciated as well. I want to go to Cuenca, Ecuador one day. I want to stand on the Equator. I also explored Cuenca as an option for retirement, and then my kids started to have babies. I really want to be close by to see the grandkids grow up.
Where do you get most of your reading in?

When I do it at home it freaks my cats out which is amusing.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 14, 2018:
I'm sorry for your loss, and from the point of view of the church that is the perfect time to spread their message, they have a captive audience. First it is a worship service, and second it is a funeral. I've actually heard that discussed at church. Weddings were the same way. Churches are in the business of keeping business coming in.

Yes, sort of. Unitarian churches, or Unitarian Universalist churches are out there. I heard the officiant say it was a "church for people who've been hurt by churches" which appealed to me.

My dad used to reply to questions like this by asking "why? are you writing a book?" And if the answer was yes he'd say "then leave that chapter out." I have found that asking why they want to know usually makes someone think about what they have asked. And one advantage to having some hearing issues is simply to ask for the question to be repeated. The questioner has the opportunity to withdraw and everyone saves face.

How to 'come out?'
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 13, 2018:
A few qestions first, and I ask this because I am a mom and likely old enough to be your grandmother. Tell us about your mom? Is she super faithful or a CE christian (CE=Christmas/Easter, goes to church only on "holy days') And if a christian what denomination? Is she pretty laid back or is she a helicopter? Are you financially dependent upon her? How has she reacted to other challenges in the past? Is their a friend or relative you can bounce this off of before you talk to mom, get their perspective on how mom will react? What is the very worst case scenario that can happen? Are you close to your mom? Does it NEED to be now, or can it wait until you're out of HS and college and on your own? I was close to my kids and they told me lots, but I'm a laid back kind of mom anyway. Their dad they didn't tell so much cuz he's pretty tightly wound. If you think this is going to rock the boat in any way, approach with caution. And good luck.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 13, 2018:
I think you made the correct choice in not having children. Children should only be born to those who want to be parents. And children are expensive, messy, disruptive, and a crap ton of work. Not everyone is cut out to deal with it, and I love your honesty. Now the hysterectomy is another story. You did not mention how extensive or which way it will be done, which is of course your perogative. Having had C-sections and working in disability claims, don't be surprised if it doesn't kick you onto your butt for a few days. Even the less invasive procedures are like having a blender in your guts. There are some huge hormonal changes that can happen not to mention it is abdominal surgery. Just listen to your body and take a few days of pampering. And good luck!! I do hope you sail through.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 12, 2018:
I had a kind of epiphany this weekend that I truly am going to be alone for a long time if not forever. I mean I've talked about it, and knew it was likely, but this weekend it seems to have really taken hold. It's not even worth trying to find someone. The last few connections I made on other dating sites have been scammers. The one real guy that I had a real date doesn't want anything besides a couple hours of Netflix a week. That isn't a relationship. Yeah, I'm a nice person but not the one. So, just me and the kitty girls. I'm sad, I tear up easily, and in the long run I'm going to be OK. I'm starting to bounce back now. And I will come back from this stronger than I was before. One of the things that makes me good at my job (or parts of my job) is that I can draw on my experience. I spoke with a woman today who just got an awful diagnosis, and told her "you don't know how strong you are until the only option is to be strong." So my friends, be strong. We will get through this.

Defence of significant other
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
I think the relationship between spouses needs to be above all other relatioinships. If you don't put your spouse first you are on the way out, IMHO. I had a disagreement with my former BIL. He is a bully and decided I wasn't pulling my weight. At the time the ex was in Korea, I was essentially a single parent of 3 small girls, the youngest a nursing infant. But when I asked the inlaws for help I was weak and needy. They replied "that's the way he is" and blew me off. The ex when he heard of it only said "he wasn't there, he couldn't judge." That is only part of the reaons he's now an ex.

I would have preferred honesty but he doesn't seem to have the balls. Funny thing is, we had encountered each other about 6 years ago. I know his real name, his job, and his address. He is an architect for the state of Nebraska, and his last name would be suitable for a porn star.

I drink white zin and rose wines most of the time. I will have a fruity mixed drink if I am out and not driving. Non alcoholic drink is water, or tea. Coffee only on days I work and never, ever after noon.

Birthdays can be hard, and I truly feel your pain, but let me give you some perspective. My 19th brithday I was in Basic Training in the Army. That was the day we went to Tear Gas training. I spent many birthdays away from family and loved ones while in the Army, and because of my dysfunctional family I might not have even gotten a card. I worked night shift on more than one birthday. So fast forward to today. I'm 60, divorced, haven't had a real date in probably a year and haven't had a relationship in much longer. I work too many hours, and I live with two cats. My kids are doing well but busy in their own lives. Yes, I am familiar with depression, anxiety, insominia, and panic attacks. Yes, I have toyed with an exit strategy, but I'm more afraid of pain and putting my kids through pain than I am of sticking around. So I took a look at my life and removed what was not working and focus on what makes me happy and gives me peace. I found some groups of atheists/agnostics and I particpate enough to satisfy my need for other people. I cut off several people that were not worth the effort to maintain the relationship. My life isn't perfect, but it's what I've got. And in the long run I'm better off than lots of people. I frequently ask myself if my problems are first world problems. There are two other guidelines I use. One is a line from Dr. Phil, **"how's that working for you?" **I ask myself that frequently and it it isn't working I work on changing it. And that is my other guideline. **People only change when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of changing.** What is it in your life that is causing you pain, and how can you fix it. That was the criteria I used when I decided on divorce. It hasn't been easy post divorce, and I traded one set of problems for another, but it was my choice. Hang in there, what I have learned is that nothing lasts forever. The sun will come out another day. You don't know how strong you are until the only option is to be strong. And my final cliche for you is that tough times really don't last, but tough people do. They may be cliches, but that doesn't mean they aren't true.
What is your opinion of Mr. Rogers and the fact that he was a Presbyterian minister?

Mr. Rogers is what all Christians should be like.
