I hope every one's Thanksgiving was wonderful. I know first hand that sometimes getting together with family may have its' moments. I'm sure you needed to recuperate from all the food not to mention the left overs.
Now it is Monday. In less than 2 days as of this writing, my Social Mixer will be taking place. This will be a good time to get out for a relaxing but fun evening with other genuine singles. It's happening on Nov. 30th, @ Toscana 52, in Feasterville/Trevose on E. Street Rd from 6 to 9pm. All ages welcome!
Dress City Casual. Hot & Cold Appetizers, Cash bar $20.00. If you bring a single male friend you split the cost, so you pay $10.00 each.
Looking forward to seeing you there. RSVP Appreciated Call Martha # 215-584-0188.
Last Friday night I stopped at a local Bar/Restaurant near where I live. While I was there having something to eat with my usual Cabernet Spritzer, I noticed that the lounge area was cleared out. I was told that a Singles Meetup group was coming in and they made some room for dancing. They started drifting in little by little and ending up with a nice crowd maybe 30 people. The ratio of women to men was about eight to one. Not good. A bunch of them sat to my right at the bar talking amongst themselves, ordering drinks and of course deciding what they wanted to eat. In the lounge, women danced with each other. The men talked to each other and some just stood around. One friendly guy was taking pictures. I spoke to a couple of guys whilst I stayed seated at the bar. One gentleman, 54 yrs old, divorced who was just standing around told me the women looked like they were all together and having a fine time without him. He didn't know how to intervene or even if he should! I reminded him we were talking and he said it was because I started the conversation and he was enjoying it. I explained that the women want the man to approach, especially older women. He was concerned that maybe she wouldn't be interested or maybe he wouldn't be after speaking with her. Now, I had to give a mini lesson on flirting before he made his move. Similar situation with the other gentleman. He said with all the women there you would think it would be easy but he felt no one was interested in him. Later,I turned to the severalwomen seated to my right at the bar. I asked them why they were stuck together at the bar. One said "Isn't that always the way. The men on one side and the women on the other" Then another said "We're here! Why don't they come over?" I did agree that should happen. Men should go up to bat and if they strike out. So what? Just get back up. As for the ladies, instead of appearing more interested in food or each other, they could look around, smile at a potential honey and let him know they would welcome his approach. The reality was Soo high school. Most of these people were definitely over fifty. They still were apart. All of them, men & women alike, agreed they were there mainly to meet the opposite sex.

A thoughtful excerpt from a short story written in the 1930s, by Dorothy Parker.
Is it that different today? Are we still agonizing over what we did or said because we're not hearing from the other? And do men worry if they let time pass, and then call, they might get the cold shoulder? Follow with me.
This is the last time I'll look at the clock. I will not look at it again. It's ten minutes past seven. He said he would telephone at five o'clock. "I'll call you at five, darling." I think that's where he said "darling.'' I'm almost sure he said it there. I know he called me "darling" twice, and the other time was when he said good-by. "Good-by, darling." He was busy, and he can't say much in the office, but he called me"darling" twice. He couldn't have minded my calling him up. I know you shouldn't keep telephoning them--I know they don't like that. When you do that, they know you are thinking about them and wanting them, and that makes them hate you. But I hadn't talked to him in three days--not in three days. And all I did was ask him how he was; it was just the way anybody might have called him up. He couldn't have minded that. He couldn't have thought I was bothering him. "No, of course you're not," he said. And he said he'd telephone me . He didn't have to say that. I didn't ask him to, truly I didn't. I'm sure I didn't. I don't think he would say he'd telephone me, and then just never do it. Please don't let him do that, God. Please don't.
"I'll call you at five darling." "Good-by, darling."
