An Older Man

I went out with an older man, recently. The last time there was an older man was way back when. He didn’t add much to my life, except some invaluable professional wisdom (I was a new manager and in agony over it. He told me it wasn’t a popularity contest and that I needed my ... Read More

A Beautiful Man

I think it would be fair to say that in my choices in the opposite sex, I’ve been a ‘brains’ person, a girl who liked geeks.

There was of course the spectacular younger man that I had the good fortune to be with for a brief while. And there are my other friends and acquaintances. ... Read More

I guess I was just one ... Read More
