"I too loved Shipping News. Recently watched Million dollar Mermaid with Esther Williams; she sure could swim and the numbers arranged by Busbey Berkeley (?spelling?) are amazing. Anyone watching the series on "Hollywood Moguls" on TCM on…"
"Hello to all, yes, a dating site can be a bit intimidating sometimes and it sucks when you get on one that only wants your profile to draw others in. Then they want money just so you can read what someone else has written to you.

Starting out with total truth, age, weight etc. If you start out with a lie, how do you correct it? Be your self, if your looking for one night stand, thats one thing, if your looking for relationship. I suggest being honest. Your…"
"Thanks for your comment Gerald. As a woman who just turned 69, I am finding it difficult to connect with anyone. But, you are right, honesty is important to build trust and a solid foundation.
"Greetings; I feel that one does have to give correct age. Many of the people at this site, I think, have been in a relationship before and dishonesty was encountered being one of the factors leading to the eventual collapse of the relationship. I…"
"Hi, I think that meeting people over the internet is time consuming, but has its pluses. Of course, we need to give our age accurately, otherwise we start off dishonestly and have to backtrack from there. Not a good beginning to any relationship of…"

"I give my real age, and have been on a lot of dating and social networking sites. never had much luck with the dating sites, so I deleted my profiles. If anyone finds me on any of the dating sites, please let me know so I can delete the profile."
Just read comments in your meeting via internet discussion.
I agree with the comment that a picture helps and yes I think age is a factor and not only for men.
Anyway I communicated with many women through the 50 plus Net Friends site (thanks to Moses Z now defunct!), but there no pictures could be posted. I actually had a few relationships through it and although these women thought I was great at first , and I never dissembled, they eventually decided that I was not what they wanted. You see they had not been entirely open about their own goals!
One woman was the most wonderful person I've ever met - perfection (an artist too BTW), but it seemed she already had a partner and was just preparing the ground in case he left!
So I would say honesty is absolutely vital, and more important for older people who have less time ...
Having said, that my profile pic is hardly up to date - now 8 years old! If you check out esteeshaven I do have a more reent one there! LOL
Oh yes, one more point: It does help, especially for a man, to have plenty of money like Chuck!
I saw my doctor this morning and dropped my trousers to show him the large boil on my backside.
He looked a bit embarrassed and said "make an appointment at the office " and carried on with his shopping.
