  1. Providers asking for deposit

    Franacesca, there are days when I can't type on a phone or a standard keyboard. That is when I go looking for the set of "error correcting fingers" I've lost.
  2. I've got to admit, I got nervous at first. Then remembered that I have other means to communicate with some of the folks here. So some of my nervousness went away. This morning, a big smile when I was able to get into TOB. Really big smile. It looks like we survived and now...how to make up for lost time?
  3. Doubles show

    What he said. That strategy has worked well for me. And a couple of times it has been offered without asking....what fun when I have been in the position to take advantage of it.
  4. Ladies reaching out...

    I ran out of rep points, so all I can do is quote Laci and Bit. It may, at times, be a marketing strategy, but I don't mind it. Many times, I believe it is because they care. And I do the same thing with some ladies. I never want to be seen as a time waster, but there are times when I reach out just to say, "Hi, how are you? You just crossed my mind and wanted you to know." There are times I want to schedule something "official" and sometimes I just want to see how someone is doing. Though I thoroughly enjoy my encounters, I also feel like this is a real community for some of us. And this community is sometimes about "the hobby", but for some of us it about friendly connection. And Bit is right, sometimes reaching out bodes well for a wonderful repeat performance.
  5. Ladies watch out....rip off report

    I'm going to try to respond to this in the best way I can. I've been playing in this hobby for a while and have never had anything like this occur. Research is our friend. Participating in our forums can add some credibility (for some people). There are risks in many areas of life, but with research, we can minimize the risks. And for me, in this world, I stick to known ladies. I've also tried to participate in the forum in positive, encouraging and informative ways. During my time here, I've been treated well by the ladies I've seen. I've had a ton of fun, offered and received respect, and have always been treated so very nicely by the ladies I've spent time with. And I mean...SO VERY NICELY.
  6. Self Care and YOU!

    Amber, thanks for the reminder. Some of us forget to take care of ourselves. It is important for some of us to remember that if we don't take care of ourselves, it makes it very hard to be truly helpful to others....and I mean that in a variety of ways, careers and settings.
  7. The Trials of a Newbie - Chapter 2

    About that same time I was playing the stock market with play money. I followed a bit of TI and thought it stood for "Texas Institute", but did some more research and discovered what it really stood for. I asked my dad if I could invest real money (I had a couple hundred dollars saved from my summer lifeguard job) and he would not let me invest it, saying it was too risky. Truly a regret on my part that I listened to him. Though he offered some other good life advice, he missed the mark on this one.
  8. Whether eating out or dining in, it's important to remember that the company and "conversation" are key ingredients to any dining experience. And sometimes after eating out, always, always remember to enjoy the "drive home"...or is it the "ride home".....or are both to be enjoyed???
  9. To Marvel at his Accomplishments

    A trendsetter that created his protagonists with faults and gave depth to his villains. I started as a DC comics guy, but added Marvel to my world very early on with Fantastic 4, then Ironman. He will be missed my many, but his work and universe will live on for the ages.
  10. Please be careful driving in this mess

    I'm cooking a roast with taters and veggies. Then taking a plates over and having dinner with a lady friend who can't get out of her house because of a very recent surgery. If not for the dinner, I'd be staying in today and watching the rest of the 3rd season of Daredevil. Hope everyone stays safe and warm today.
  11. Why the reluctance to take credit and debit cards?

    I'm a single and unattached gent and I still have a spot in my place for my "mad money". It has worked out well and is reserved for playtime.
  12. Why the reluctance to take credit and debit cards?

    I echo your sentiment and Bit's.
  13. Site maintenance

    Megan.......some of us are already crazy. And you lovelies add to the best kind of crazy.
  14. Site maintenance

    I third, fourth or fifth this nomination and call for a vote. Oh wait....the afternoon is almost over...we have missed our chance with Laci.
  15. Making Love vs. Sex

    Uhhhhhhhhhhh, well.....when you put it that way....absatively, posolutely YES. It may be a glandular problem that has been like a constant itch for many years. Thankfully, I've been able get that itch scratched in a variety of ways, in a variety of places with a variety of ladies. And I am so very thankful for the care I have gotten for that particular itch.
