I've been married for a total of 62 years and was pretty sure my interactions with the opposite sex were history. But, as is often the case, I was wrong. My first encounter was with a fine looking gentleman at the pro- duce counter at King's. We were touching and sniffing cantaloupes together and exchanged a few pleasantries. As luck would have i t , we met again several weeks later and after a lengthy discussion about the merits of asparagus (Be still my heart!) we decided to share coffee and croissants at Starbucks. Un- fortunately, the more we shared the more I knew that, alas, he was not going to be part of my destiny. Then I met a fella (85 if he was a day) while volunteering at the Medical Center. That affair of the heart s l o w l y progressed to dinner at the Clinton House. Turns out he was looking for someone to "take care of him" in the future. I'd been there, done that – ENOUGH ALREADY. So it was a very short lived relationship. Finally (well, at least so far) I met the di- vorced father of a young friend. We had a wonderful, comfortable, laugh-a-lot lun- cheon date and I hope more will follow soon. Time isn't on my side. In case you are in the market for an older dude, there are places to meet widowers/divorcees. There is always volunteering... anywhere elderly gentlemen frequent. There are classes at the Division on Aging, but I suggest "Auto Mechanics" or "Fly Fishing" rather than "Knitting" or 'Quilting". They tell me you can attend Square Dancing classes and maybe do-si-do with an interesting partner or two. My criteria for a date is simple: Can he drive at night and cut his own meat? As my age goes up, my standards go down. It's nice to go out to dinner with a male companion or to share a theatre trip to the city or even a picnic at Round Valley. That would more than satisfy my needs. Being alone, however, is not the same as being lonely. I am coping as a widow remarkably well, doing things "My Way" for the first time in more than half a century. If my Prince Charming evades me, I'll settle for a companionable frog.
