Carolyn I am not sure that dating is the way to start into a relationship. One of the girls in chat has a sport she does three times a week. There was a fellow there and they became friends. Over a period of time they got to know each other a little better and finally they went on a date. Now it has gone to the next step. She was not looking for a relationship it just happened.
I just found out yesterday that the lady across the street from me, who lost her husband in December and moved in a month before Madeline died has found someone she is interested in. She was definately not looking for a man. She has been going to a social event every Sunday in Puyallup. She sat next to a man and they got to talking and shared their interests. They both like to walk so he invited her to walk around the lake at the park for company. Now they have become walking companions. She now has feelings for him and took off her wedding rings last week.
In both cases they were not looking for someone to come into their lives, they just found a friend. I am sure in other cases someone has found a friend that did not go anywhere, but they still have their friend.
Carolyn I don't know if this gives you hope or if it was what you were looking for but I wanted to share it with you.
I am 6'3" and at one time had belonged to a tall club You may want to check in your area for one.
You just haven't run into the right man. I'm 5'8". And I like tall women. I'm not a kid anymore. I might ask you to leave the heels at home sometimes though.
