A Second (Medical?) Opinion

This morning I had my annual exam and since my GYN has started her own practice, I had to fill out a whole new patient profile including some pretty personal questions about my history.

I thought it was funny how my doctor seemed to think it was strange that I am not currently "active" in an intimate way (apparently no one is expected to uphold any kind of standards these days) and she even went so far as to suggest I try some internet dating in order to find someone with whom I can have a relationship. I told her I'd been down that road and was scared off by all the weirdos!

Any way, I read on Rice Freeman-Zachery's website today about some other internet dating fiascos that seemed to echo my own experiences... I laughed my butt off because it's just so sad and so true! You can read about them here: http://voodoonotes.blogspot.com/2009/12/internet-dating.html

Don't feel alone in that boat Becca, although I've been in a relationship for going on 8 yrs. now, and although he and I have grown children, we still are sensitive to the standards we set in front of them. We travel a lot together, but we have our own space and bed when we do. I'm like you, I don't understand why people can't take a "classier" stand now-a-days. Thanks so much for your comment on my last blog posting too. I'm with you, my God is an awesome God and a loving Father, just like my own Dad. He's not always been able to keep me out of trouble during my life but He's always there to pick me up.

OMGosh! We could swap notes! I'll bet we'd have a good laugh (and/or cry!!!). You're right, there are a lot of wierdos on there and many of them are still married and stuff! It's just creepy! I think I remember hearing in General Conference a year or so ago one of the General Authorities advising that internet dating was not advisable for finding an eternal partner. After some of the scary experiences I've had I would have to agree. But then, I've dated some creeps that I met at a "certain Single's Ward that shall remain nameless", too! So, it just seems like the pickins are slimmer and slimmer with age! Ha!
