[ - ] Divorced 5 years with nice settlement that will carry me for a while. Met a nice man 3 years ago who was also divorced who lives on his boat (ex wife got the house) and he makes his way giving sailing lessons and crewing charters and transports. A lot in cash so he doesn't have to give his ex anything else (also they don't have any kids). I took a few sailing lessons from him and I was gun shy about a new relationship so held back. I still get his email updates from his sailing instruction business and it's obvious he's still single. He's currently moored in Port Jefferson and I'm wondering if I should email him back. His life sounds so adventurous. Carribbean in the winter; New England in the summer. Am I being crazy? Yes I've had wine. 3 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

sigh. In the back of my mind I keep thinking as soon as I hitch my ride to this guy he's going to hitch his to me. He talks way too much about stuff going wrong with his boat. In a movie that's romantic that he's handy in a jam. In real life I guess it means he's going to raid my savings to fix his boat. Also I'm not attractive enough to sincerely believe his interest in me. Oh well. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Have I been living under a rock? I was reading a story on CNN this morning about an 18 yo kid who went to Peru on a "retreat" to partake in ayahuasca, a hallucinogenic drug. He never came back. Probably OD'd. That story got me googling and I read other accounts of people who went on these retreats. Taking ayahuasca, applying hallucinogenic sapo (toad slime) to their skin, etc. all in the name of tripping. I had never heard of ayahuasca before. Is this common knowledge or am I just old and out of touch? 14 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] I’m worried about DH. He is 45 and spends most of his time on an internet forum of his own creation which he recently tried to monetize but also purged of anyone who irritates him (he can be very irritable lol), and I gather the two strategies did not mesh well together. We do not have any DCs which we are okay with but he recently has talked a lot about mentoring troubled youth he has met through his web forum. In the past he has “dipped his toe” into the mentoring waters with one troubled young man having mothers issues and regular religious crises as well a troubled less-young man with a few drug and reality problems. I have always supported this but DH has now talked about “taking it to the next level” with “intelligent young men” who, like DH, find that college is just not for them. I get the weird feeling he already has someone in mind, probably someone on his forum that keeps flunking out of different colleges or something. Anyway should I be worried? Whenever I ask him if anything’s wrong he says, “Yes, C, dammit, you know what’s wrong, our society is seriously out of scale!” Which is something I admit he has told me before but which I have never in almost eight years of marriage understood in the slightest.
