Ok so, I forgot to tell everyone. I had to have my eyes checked and found out I needed glasses. So during the holiday break I grabbed Reid and we went shopping for eyeglasses. What did I wind up with you ask? Reid picked this really cool pair of steel/chrome Dolce & Gabbana glasses. I have not worn glasses since I was 16 years old. I have needed them all along, I just got vain and refused to get them. The problem became ... I can't see! Now I can. -Thanks Reid

I signed up for three dating sites..well two dating sites and what wound up being a 'hook-up' site. Let's just say that was not the place for me... I am a relationship oriented person... always have been, always will be. Can't teach an old dog new tricks I guess.

I did Chemistry.com (which I like because of the interface and how you meet people and are introduced.)

I also signed up over at gay.com to see what that's all about. I made some fun friends there but interest in a realtionship has been slim.

I have decided that, for me, this process is too black and white. If you put down in writing exactly what you are all about and then are only matched with people who have also set what they want... it's too rigid... I think I am missing out on a lot of people who would appriciate me. I have decided that meeting someone the old fashioned way may be best.. It's too hard to explain what I am about in two paragraphs on a website. So I give up, but sitll remain hopeful that I will meet someone in real life.

Love the glasses - I need Reid to help me pick out a new pair.

I agree on the internet dating. I find that everybody gets put in two categories, and I don't fit into either.

1. Looking for a spouse
2. Just looking to get laid

My category - "looking for someone whose company I enjoy to spend some quality time with" doesn't seem to exist
