Friend/Relationship/Family - Rule #1 - never mix business with friends or family. Too many conflicts. Let another professional handle it. Since you obviously didn't do it for free, let friends/family pay someone else for the work.

If I still had a profile, yes. Feels weird not having one. I should change that.

Nothing will short of a pre-nup which is still at risk of being contested. Pre-nups also have to be executed correctly to avoid the air of coercion. This means your other half has adequate time to reflect on signing the pre-nup and has legal representation. Signing of the document after even all of the prior being in place would be best done with your attorney being present and the whole thing video recorded.

The real assurance is to change family law so it's not so lopsided in the woman's favor.

I'm also involved in Meetup for various activities. Those saying it's free are wrong. It's only free if the Meetup organizers make it free for you. There is a cost in running a Meetup group. The creator/organizer pays that yearly cost. Some Meetups will give you a grace period to try out the group before you have to pay in whatever dues they charge. Some require up front payment. And some ask for donations to help defray the yearly costs.

As to doing my hobbies and such to meet someone, I already mentioned the train wrecks I've had to deal with around the dance community. My other hobbies are motorcycling and sailing. Pretty hard to just run into someone doing those. I also did a stint with someone at the gym. That was also a total mess.

I will say - I have NEVER met someone I liked when I was looking for someone. Maybe it's just me. Perhaps the cloak of desperation ruins it or the fact you are "trying" or whatever. Every train wreck I have been involved with was when I was in search mode.

Then I say F it and settle in to enjoying the single life again.....and BAM I causally bump onto someone.

Never fails for me.

I would like to set my Mom up on a dating app. Not necessarily with the goal of dating to marry but more of finding a companion. She's 60 something and sure the hell isn't going to put herself out there or show up at a kayaking event alone. She could use some companionship but she isn't going to be the one to try to find it.

My mom used Match.com Though her goal was to find someone. She was on it 6 months and now she’s been married 11 years.

After my mom passed, dad got on Match.

They got married about 7 months later

Honestly, I don’t think it’s worth it. But seeing several success stories on this thread, you can give it a try i guess.

I agree. The only friends who I now accept as patients are doctors. They understand the business.

And only agree to coffee too, that way you arent in a situation where youre fucking stuck there. My idiot coworker kept taking women on dinner dates. Use coffee or happy hour as the INTERVIEW for the date.

Met a girl from match a week ago .. and she is hotter IRL than her pics suggest. Hmmm .. did she do that on purpose, or is she a bad photographer? Girls be sneaky too.

Either way we're going out again ...

And I think I still want a watch for Christmas. I'm thinking a Speedmaster might do the trick

Get her set up on Grinder. This is the way.
