[ - ] 44 y/o Bumble Guy here. Is anyone on? I need help as my existential crisis is getting worse. I dropped Bumble and joined Tinder. On Tinder I've had legitimately hot, like stunning, 35-45 year olds offer to set up a time to fuck. I know this because we have dirty conversations and I tell them what I'm going to do them. Sometimes I speak on the phone. But I'm so, I don't know the word, that I just relieve myself instead of waiting a few hours or a day to meet them. It's occurring to me that a 44 year old man should not be living this life. I really screwed my life up by not living right in my 20's and now I'm apathetic about anything but relationships with 20 year olds, which I'll never get and which is gross in its own way. Is there any way to make this all right? 78 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

No I'm too active to be depressed. I think I'm just world weary. At some point you've seen and done so much that everything is meh. I never thought I'd have a hot woman inviting me over, and jack off instead because I'm too disinterested. If she came over at that moment I would have fucked her, but I'm not waiting and driving.

np: being active doesn't mean you aren't depressed. Depression can manifest in a number of ways depending on the person's personality. I agree with the person above that you have a low grade depression that you are not recognizing and treating. Google ketamine for depression and do a single session of it and I promise you your life will improve. [ Reply | More ]

Well ketamine isn't something you are "on", it's an IV you get put into your arm for an hour that feels wonderful (a lot like mushrooms but nicer and not scary.) But yes, that's exactly what I'm saying. Your depression is clouding your motivation. [ Reply | More ]

And when you list that depression you will see things differently and have new motivation to accomplish the things you want in life, like meeting up with these women. You won't just take the easy path. I don't think you have severe depression, just minor depression. Google "low motivation and depression" and read up on it. You will see what I mean. If you don't like the medication route or the ketamine route, there are other options. Have you considered seeing a therapist? What you are going through it pretty classic midlife crisis regrets but it's harder for you since you don't have a family to support you and give you meaning and happiness despite your concerns about aging.

you basically have to try it. It can be very different every time. I’ve been having sex a lot and … almost every experience offers something unique. I usually learn something about myself even if something very small. My most recent experience, I invited a guy who came over. The guy told me a story that he had a boyfriend who died on 9/11… So I just listened. After that he became emotionally attached to his deceased boyfriend’s brother, but the brother was doing crack, prostituting himself, and lying to the guy. Kinda sad. I played the counselor, listen, offer advice. Cuddle. Then he finally relaxed and we got sexual. Then he wanted to fuck me. I let him. Then he fell asleep on top of me. When he woke up 5–7 min later, I wanted to engage into kink but he was too tired. He couldn’t stay overnight but he wasn’t leaving So I ended up licking his butt till I got so hard I started trying to penetrate him. But I didn’t have another condom ready and despite me wanting to penetrate him and ejaculate into him so badly, I had to cum onto his back. It was still good but it took me a bit to adjust not having been ready with condom, as me fucking another guy is a rare event, I wanted to capitalize on it. Then I texted him to make sure he got home safely. He did, and said thanks. This is just one experience out of many. Every one is unique. [ Reply | More ]

Look, it's ok for a man and a dog to have a healthy relationship, but lets get real. I've hung out with my daughter's friends for an hour. They think I'm fun, and they can be cute, even beautiful. But, why a 50 wants a 20 is easy to see, if a tight body and arm candy and a lack of depth is what he wants. Why a 20 year old girl wants a 50 year old man, is also pretty easy to figure. And girl, please add 25 to each of your age. You may not believe this but you are hotter and more desirable at 45, and you are possibly helping your man use his walker. Yes, some 75 year olds are in amazing shape. But math and probability pretty much work. Here's a question: what are the chances that the 59 year old is broke and the 20 year old is rich? 34.6k Views · Your feedback is private. Is this answer still relevant and up to date? · Also... Nothing is long term for a 50 year old man. I will be honest and it might sound harsh. It is possible, but I doubt that such relationship will be based purely on love. Financials will play a role too, as most likely the man is established, the girl is young and pretty, so the money matches the beauty and not love matches love. Most likely the girl will eventually have a lover over the years who can satisfy her physically. No matter what good shape this man is in and how youthful he is, physically he will never compete with younger men, especially not 10 years from now. Imagine that in 15 - 20 years of time, when the man is about to retire and do some fun stuff older people do, like traveling to sunny Florida and play golf and bingo, the woman will be only 35-40, that is according to current society standards is still pretty young. ("40s are the new 30s") Other than the physical aspect, the 30 years difference in age is pretty big in values, principles, culture, etc. so most likely these two people's interests will vary too. I don't want to judge anybody, but I think most of these relationships when there is a huge age difference, the younger one is a gold digger. [ Reply | More ]

there was an old woman in her 90s - a widow - friend of the oil broker family. Her husband had been a big deal producer or something in Hollywood. She would regale me with stories of everyone from Clark Gable to Marilyn Monroe and she was a sassy firecracker of a woman. One day, she asked if I wanted to house sit for her. She was going back east to visit one of her kids. Uhm. Hell to the yes I wanted to house sit. I shared a crappy apartment with 3 others. So, I went to her gorgeous place in the hills one afternoon so she could show me which plants to water, etc. I get there and the door is ajar (gated place and long driveway). I yell hello and she calls me to come to the backyard. She’s lying on a chaise by the pool and tells me to fix myself a drink. I’m not 21 but I do as she says, respecting my elders. She asks if I have my bathing suit - of course I don’t - and she says to help myself to hers. I figure I can’t catch anything from a 90+ woman and then I put on one of these suits - which were twice my age - and I look like a 1940s bombshell. There was so much construction to it, it shaped me into a perfect hourglass. Wish they made them that way now. Anyway… I went back out to the pool and we proceeded to drink vodka on the rocks together and chat. After I was well and buzzed, I thought to ask her how it felt to be so freaking old. I said it pretty much just like that. She paused for a full minute. I thought I had offended her. Then she slowly started to explain. She said that when you’re about 25 or so…. you are pretty much who you are and will always be on the inside. With time, you may fluctuate in some beliefs or improve or not improve yourself in small bits. If you’re wise, you learn as much as you can. But you are pretty much you. You go on to experience life - maybe marriage, kids, travel, loss, joy. As you age, you start understanding the perspectives of your parents and others older than you. But you are basically still that same you that you were at 25. At about 35, you may start to feel and look a little different. Just a bit older. By 40, you start to really feel or see some physical changes but depending upon how you took care of yourself, they might not be too bad or not. At 50, you start looking decidedly different in face and body although some age better than others. At 60, nobody is all that pleased with their physical state. That is why it is IMPERATIVE that you work on your inside. That you develop self love that is deeper than surface appearances. That you do your best to live without regrets. She quoted, “The regret for things we’ve done can be tempered with time but regrets for those things we did not do.. those are inconsolable.” Can’t recall who said that at the moment but she definitely advised boldness. Then she told me that she had lived a full life; loved and did all she wanted to do and she was happy on the inside. She was at peace with herself. But in the morning, when she woke up… at first, she felt 25 again. Then she turned her head to look at the clock and her neck told her she was at least 35. Then she moved an arm and was 45. Then a leg and was 55. Then sat up and was 65. Then stood up and was 75. She then started walking toward her bathroom and was 85… and then she turned to face the mirror and thought, “Who the fuck is that?” She said it just like that and I’d never heard a “nice” adult swear like that before. We both burst out laughing. I have never forgotten her words and they have helped me live in the present and be mindful of the work I do in my own soul and mind as I get older and the physical starts to lose its shine. The inside never need change for anything but the better. [ Reply | More ]

It’s true that many women get 100 messages per day on dating sites. It’s true that if a woman places an ad on Craigslist seeking a date with a man she might get 100 replies in the first few hours. I’ve dated several women who have shown me the messages they get on dating sites and on Craigslist. We’ve worked out some rough statistics. Of the 100 messages*: 80 will include an unwanted picture of a penis. 90 will be so poorly written that the person writing them disqualifies himself from romance immediately. 10 will be stalkery, threatening or harassing — as in if-this-guy-knew-her-address-she-would-fear-for-her-safety. 50 will be from men who are lying about their relationship status. 2 - 3 might be from guys who are genuinely interesting on the surface, but who, after a brief chat, end up being poor matches Think of this as 100 resumes a woman has to screen per day, most of which aren’t even resumes, they’re more like junk mail and rape threats. Three of those (and she doesn’t know which three unless she reads them all) are from genuine possible matches. An app like Bumble — which nobody has to sign up for, any more than anybody has to go to a specific night club — completely changes that dynamic. Instead of men “pushing” to the women, the women “pull” from the men. The women pick the 2–3 men they might be genuinely interested in, and open up communication with them by initiating it. Chances are a person who genuinely believes it’s sexist to help a woman with the issues of traditional dating sites the way Bumble does, isn’t one of the 2–3 she wants to “pull.” The argument you’re making against Bumble is of the same form as arguments against “affirmative action” in hiring. They’re old arguments, and they’ve been examined and reexamined by generations of very literate, very sensible, very intelligent people over the past 50 years. Even after 50 years of arguing, neither side has won. I’m not going to repeat affirmative action arguments here; they’re easy to research should anyone want deeper understanding. I think that anyone who does take the trouble to research affirmative action arguments and counterarguments will see the similarities, and perhaps gain new insight into this issue. *Women of Quora, if your experience matches or differs substantially feel free to comment.

You say that most people wouldn't consider this a problem. Well, that's not true. Many men and women can feel despondent about not receiving love or attention from the opposite sex. Many young people, mostly men (statistically) impulsively attempt suicide as a cry for attention, in an attempt to get the world to take notice. I have known of several cases of young people who have rashly decided to end it all based on how they feel at that moment only. Some have succeeded, some have been unlucky enough to realise their mistake when it was too late, where medical aid could do nothing for them as they lay there dying. So let's give you some facts of life. You are studying two great subjects and are privileged enough to have opportunity to study them. You have great potential to succeed in life with qualifications in your chosen subjects. You have, I am sure, family. Your parents or guardians have raised you, loved you, fed you, clothed you, provided you with an education and done what they thought was right to give you the many opportunities you have available to you. Yet you are obsessing over only one aspect of your life and talking about killing yourself because of that one aspect? Do you believe your family deserve to be hurt permanently, after everything they have done for you, all because you don't have a girlfriend? You obviously do have love, or you wouldn't have had the support to get you to university or the food and necessities to reach the age of 21, wouldn't you agree? As wonderful as love and having a partner can be, do you not realise that it can also be very difficult? That we are all different and that relationships can be very hard work? That heartbreak and betrayal in a relationship feels a whole lot worse than not having a partner? What happens if you do have a girlfriend you love and she breaks your heart or you simply have a disagreement? Do you threaten to kill yourself every time things don't go your way or do you act maturely and sort the problem like a man? I can tell you right now that I have yet to know a woman who is attracted to a man who feels sorry for himself and complains about how bad his life is. Do you think doing so or threatening suicide will attract women to you or repel them? The problem does not lie with love and girlfriends or lack of them. The problem lies with you. You are focusing far too much on something which may or may not be great and entirely taking for granted everything you already have. Women sense a guy that is trying to hard from a mile off and it is not attractive. If you want to get a girlfriend, stop trying to and stop focusing on how bad it makes you feel not to have one. Instead, focus on your studies, interests and on appreciating the people and things you have in your life. Figure yourself out and take steps to improve your life by doing things for others. Feeling better will make your confidence grow, which in turn will effect your body language and personality so that you begin to be naturally attractive to women. Whining and threatening suicide do absolutely no good when it comes to improving how others see you. Start to appreciate and love yourself or you will never be ready to love someone else. To gain respect, respect yourself first and then others. Make an effort to be a valuable member of the community and get yourself out there to make others feel appreciated. There is no secret formula to getting a girlfriend, but I can tell you honestly that you are doing the opposite of what you should be doing. Wallowing in self-pity is not attractive. If you feel genuinely depressed or suicidal, visit your doctor, today. If you are just bitter about not having a girlfriend, have a good think about why any girl should want you as you are and then make the changes you already know you need to make to succeed. You cannot expect to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result as that is the definition of madness. You are obviously intelligent and want to share your life with someone. That means you value your life. Ending it means you never experience happiness or anything else on earth. Does that really make any sense? The younger we are, the more impulsive we can be and we all make mistakes and sometimes say and do thing we don't mean, simply because we can't find the words or means to express ourselves until we have lived long enough and have the experience to do so. Do you want your impulses to control you or are you now going to start controlling your impulses and begin to think positively about what you need to do in your life to be happy and to feel a sense of accomplishment? Follow your interests and hobbies, live your life. When you begin to relax and look happier and at ease, girls will notice, I assure you. But acting like this attracts no one. Be yourself and it will lead to great things, including girlfriends. But focus on other people and their world if you want to become a part of it. Good luck, happy studying and I expect an invitation to your wedding. [ Reply | More ]

I am a 70+ year old man, so I can answer this, while knowing full well that a much younger person will not benefit from my answer at all because one of the main things I have learned is that each person must learn his own life lessons from his own experience. Many things that I learned in my life to be true, I had already heard many times from older folks, but these things did not benefit me until a day came when I suddenly realized their truth for myself - I finally felt these facts in my inner self. At many stages of my life, I would have given many different pieces of advice. At this point, I think I can sum up the one thing that worked most in my favor and brought me the greatest reward. It is something I would have rejected completely as a strategy in my young days when I was obsessed with right and wrong and what others should do and how I should respond. My best advice is “Act happy”. I thought in many parts of my life that I was inadequate, selfish or had other negatives overwhelming me. Once, though, someone repeated to me a remark my brother made about me to another relative, “Oh, you know how lucky Dan always is!”. It made me think. I realized I have been lucky in my life, not in the lottery-winning, discovered by a producer sort of way, but in the way of things working out well in the end. And I got to thinking why this had been; I certainly did not feel lucky much of the time, even when things were going pretty well. Then, not long ago, I was looking through my old high school yearbook before attending a reunion and I came upon something a fellow student, not even a close friend, had written, “You were always happy!” And it clicked. Happy people, or those who seem happy to others, draw good luck to themselves. Consider if you found there was an opening at your company and you had two friends who were qualified. Let’s say one was usually happy and good humored and the other complained much of the time and seemed angry at life. To which of these friends are you most likely to mention the job? The friend to whom you mention the job may well feel he was lucky to hear of it. He was lucky, because he acts happy around you and he is the one you would prefer to be around all day every day. People, I find, are not happy because they are lucky, but rather lucky because they seem happy. The optimistic person tends to ask, “Why not?” when an opportunity arises to do something interesting. A small percentage of the time we have events which cannot help but make us happy: a raise, a promotion, our wedding, our children’s birth and so on. A small percentage of the time truly unhappy events occur: deaths, illness, loss of a job, etc. The majority of our lives is pretty much an every-day type of life, only happy or sad because we define it that way. Happiness is not a function of good luck or beneficial birth conditions or anything that “happens”; happiness is a decision. No one avoids some sadness, some unfairness, some disappointments. A man would be numb, indeed, not to feel very unhappy at such times. But feeling unhappy and taking it out on those around us by complaints, raging or whatever are two different things. When you really want something, give it a shot. Never let anyone tell you why not. I lived on the periphery of a war zone for a while. Everyone and his brother told me why I shouldn’t do this. But many of the best things - including some good friends that have lasted - stem directly from this time in my life. It is one thing to be an idiot, walking around a dangerous area waving money, but it is entirely another thing to avoid all risk because someone counsels against it. At least one great moment in your life will almost certainly stem from doing something you were warned against. Believe your own eyes and do not let other people interpret life for you. Your truth and your happiness stem from what is unique to you. You will not be happy achieving other people’s goals; you will be far happier achieving your own goals even if they are far more modest - or if they are far more extravagant and ‘above your reach’. You have probably heard many times that one regrets more the things one didn’t do than the things one did. This is entirely true in my experience. You don’t know what anyone is like until you meet him or her or them. If you haven’t been somewhere, do not write off the people there as ‘wrong’ or 'dirty' or ‘crazy’ or ‘angry without any reason’. Crazy cultures do not endure. Do not think I came to this conclusion because my life was rosy. I have suffered from depression, I have lost two brothers I loved deeply and the person who was the love of my life (so far). My childhood was chaotic at times, one parent suffered from bipolar disorder and alcoholism. I was not in the popular crowd at school, which hurt, but people did like me well enough. Should I have then made everyone around me miserable to pay the world back for these things? If you act happy, you are far more likely to BE happy. Resist the temptation to vent freely. After a few minutes of hearing about the viciousness of someone’s ex or the unfairness of someone’s boss or competitor, the listener tends begin to sympathize with that ex, that boss, that competitor. The worse you speak of your ex, the more likely a new prospect is to think that is what will be said of him or her somewhere down the road. I don’t say to suppress, to refuse to admit or experience negative feelings; what I am saying is not to spread them around. I am not saying to indulge in platitudes - “everything is for the best”, “what goes ‘round comes ‘round'”, etc. The wicked DO often prosper. Are you willing to let your life be ruined by that fact? So when I was about to turn 71, I was thinking that nothing much new would turn up in my life. I wasn’t unhappy, but though largely content, I was kind of bored and restless. And one day someone reached out to me on the net and everything changed. I could have said, “No way!” I could have assumed it was a a scam (and I certainly gave out no private info or spent any cash). But with Skyping and talking and seeing each other, I began to trust and soon we spent three months together. I will soon be leaving for half a year to spend with my new love. We are planning a life together. I presented myself as a happy content person and now I am one. No one has to believe me or act on my advice. But somewhere there is an old guy humming a tune and performing happy little dance steps and what good does it to you to believe it ain’t so? [ Reply | More ]

June 25, 1745 My dear Friend, I know of no Medicine fit to diminish the violent natural Inclinations you mention; and if I did, I think I should not communicate it to you. Marriage is the proper Remedy. It is the most natural State of Man, and therefore the State in which you are most likely to find solid Happiness. Your Reasons against entering into it at present, appear to me not well-founded. The circumstantial Advantages you have in View by postponing it, are not only uncertain, but they are small in comparison with that of the Thing itself, the being married and settled. It is the Man and Woman united that make the compleat human Being. Separate, she wants his Force of Body and Strength of Reason; he, her Softness, Sensibility and acute Discernment. Together they are more likely to succeed in the World. A single Man has not nearly the Value he would have in that State of Union. He is an incomplete Animal. He resembles the odd Half of a Pair of Scissars. If you get a prudent healthy Wife, your Industry in your Profession, with her good Economy, will be a Fortune sufficient. But if you will not take this Counsel, and persist in thinking a Commerce with the Sex inevitable, then I repeat my former Advice, that in all your Amours you should prefer old Women to young ones. You call this a Paradox, and demand my Reasons. They are these: i. Because as they have more Knowledge of the World and their Minds are better stor'd with Observations, their Conversation is more improving and more lastingly agreable. 2. Because when Women cease to be handsome, they study to be good. To maintain their Influence over Men, they supply the Diminution of Beauty by an Augmentation of Utility. They learn to do a 1000 Services small and great, and are the most tender and useful of all Friends when you are sick. Thus they continue amiable. And hence there is hardly such a thing to be found as an old Woman who is not a good Woman. 3. Because there is no hazard of Children, which irregularly produc'd may be attended with much Inconvenience. 4. Because thro' more Experience, they are more prudent and discreet in conducting an Intrigue to prevent Suspicion. The Commerce with them is therefore safer with regard to your Reputation. And with regard to theirs, if the Affair should happen to be known, considerate People might be rather inclin'd to excuse an old Woman who would kindly take care of a young Man, form his Manners by her good Counsels, and prevent his ruining his Health and Fortune among mercenary Prostitutes. 5. Because in every Animal that walks upright, the Deficiency of the Fluids that fill the Muscles appears first in the highest Part: The Face first grows lank and wrinkled; then the Neck; then the Breast and Arms; the lower Parts continuing to the last as plump as ever: So that covering all above with a Basket, and regarding2 only what is below the Girdle, it is impossible of two Women to know an old from a young one. And as in the dark all Cats are grey, the Pleasure of corporal Enjoyment with an old Woman is at least equal, and frequently superior, every Knack being by Practice capable of Improvement. 6. Because the Sin is less. The debauching a Virgin may be her Ruin, and make her for Life unhappy. 7. Because the Compunction is less. The having made a young Girl miserable may give you frequent bitter Reflections; none of which can attend the making an old Woman happy. 8thly and Lastly They are so grateful!! Thus much for my Paradox. But still I advise you to marry directly; being sincerely Your affectionate Friend. [ Reply | More ]

Indeed, in my mind, there cannot be higher felicity on earth enjoyed by man than the participation of genuine reciprocal amorous affection with an amiable woman. There he has a full indulgence of all the delicate feelings and pleasures both of body and mind, while at the same time in this enchanting union he exults with a consciousness that he is the superior person. The dignity of his sex is kept up. These paradisial scenes of gallantry have exalted my ideas and refined my taste, so that I really cannot think of stooping so far as to make a most intimate companion of a groveling-minded, ill-bred, worthless creature, nor can my delicacy be pleased with the gross voluptuousness of the stews. I am therefore walking about with a healthful stout body and a cheerful mind, in search of a woman worthy of my love, and who thinks me worthy of hers, without any interested views, which is the only sure way to find out if a woman really loves a man. If I should be a single man for the whole winter, I will be satisfied. I have had as much elegant pleasure as I could have expected would come to my share in many years. However, I hope to be more successful. In this view, I had now called several times for a handsome actress of Covent Garden Theatre, whom I was a little acquainted with, and whom I shall distinguish in this my journal by the name of Louisa. This lady had been indisposed and saw no company, but today I was admitted. She was in a pleasing undress and looked very pretty. She received me with great politeness. We chatted on the common topics. We were not easy — there was a constraint upon us — we did not sit right on our chairs, and we were unwilling to look at one another. I talked to her on the advantage of having an agreeable acquaintance, and hoped I might see her now and then. She desired me to call in whenever I came that way, without ceremony. “And pray,” said she, “when shall I have the pleasure of your company at tea?” I fixed Thursday, and left her, very well satisfied with my first visit.

I engaged in this amour just with a view of convenient pleasure but the god of pleasing anguish now seriously seized my breast. I felt the fine delirium of love. I waited on Louisa at one, found her alone, told her that her goodness in hoping to see me soon had brought me back: that it appeared long to me since I saw her. I was a little bashful. However, I took a good heart and talked with ease and dignity. “I hope, Madam, you are at present a single woman.” “Yes, sir.” “And your affections are not engaged?” “They are not, Sir.” “But this is leading me into a strange confession. I assure you, Madam, my affections are engaged.” “Are they, Sir?” “Yes, Madam, they are engaged to you.” (She looked soft and beautiful.) “I hope we shall be better acquainted and like one another better.” “Come, Sir, let us talk no more of that now.” “No, Madam, I will not. It is like giving the book in the preface.” “Just so, Sir, telling in the preface what should be in the middle of the book.” (I think such conversations are best written in the dialogue way.) “Madam, I was very happy to find you. From the first time that I saw you, I admired you.” “O, Sir.” “I did, indeed. What I like beyond everything is an agreeable female companion, where I can be at home and have tea and genteel conversation. I was quite happy to be here.” “Sir, you are welcome here as often as you please. Every evening, if you please.” “Madam I am infinitely obliged to you.” [ Reply | More ]

The night before I did not rest well. I was really violently in love with Louisa. I thought she did not care for me. I thought that if I did not gain her affections, I would appear despicable to myself. This day I was in a better frame, being Christmas day, which has always inspired me with most agreeable feelings. I went to St. Paul's Church and in that magnificent temple fervently adored the God of goodness and mercy, and heard a sermon by the Bishop of Oxford on the publishing of glad tidings of great joy.

At one I went to Louisa's. I told her my passion in the warmest terms. I told her that my happiness absolutely depended upon her. She said it was running the greatest risk. “Then,” said I, “Madam, you will show the greatest generosity to a most sincere lover.” She said that we should take time to consider of it, and that then we could better determine how to act. We agreed that the time should be a week, and that if I remained of the same opinion, she would then make me blessed. There is no telling how easy it made my mind to be convinced that she did not despise me, but on the contrary had a tender heart and wished to make me easy and happy. [ Reply | More ]

. . . I went to Louisa at one. “Madam, I have been thinking seriously.” “Well, Sir, I hope you are of my way of thinking.” “I hope, Madam, you are of mine. I have considered this matter most seriously. The week is now elapsed, and I hope you will not be so cruel as to keep me in misery.” (I then began to take some liberties.) “Nay, Sir — now — but do consider —” “Ah, Madam!” “Nay, but you are an encroaching creature!” (Upon this I advanced to the greatest freedom by a sweet elevation of the charming petticoat.) “Good heaven, Sir!” “Madam, I cannot help it. I adore you. Do you like me?” (She answered me with a warm kiss, and pressing me to her bosom, sighed, “O Mr. Boswell!”) “But, my dear Madam! Permit me, I beseech you.” “Lord, Sir, the people may come in.” “How then can I be happy? What time? Do tell me.” “Why, Sir, on Sunday afternoon my landlady, of whom I am most afraid, goes to church, so you may come here a little after three.” “Madam, I thank you a thousand times.” “Now, Sir, I have but one favour to ask of you. Whenever you cease to regard me, pray don't use me ill, nor treat me coldly. But inform me by a letter or any other way that it is over.” “Pray, Madam, don't talk of such a thing. Indeed, we cannot answer for our affections. But you may depend on my behaving with civility and politeness.” [ Reply | More ]

I had George Home at breakfast with me. He is a good honest fellow and applies well to his business as a merchant. He had seen me all giddiness at his father's, and was astonished to find me settled on so prudent a plan. As I have made it a rule to dine every Sunday at home, and have got my landlady to give us regularly on that day a piece of good roast beef with a warm apple-pie, I was a little difficulted today, as our time of dining is three o'clock, just my hour of assignation. However, I got dinner to be at two, and at three I hastened to my charmer. Here a little speculation on the human mind may well come in. For here was I, a young man full of vigour and vivacity, the favourite lover of a handsome actress and going to enjoy the full possession of my warmest wishes. And yet melancholy threw a cloud over my mind. I could relish nothing. I felt dispirited and languid. I approached Louisa with a kind of an uneasy tremor. I sat down. I toyed with her. Yet I was not inspired by Venus. I felt rather a delicate sensation of love than a violent amorous inclination for her. I was very miserable. I thought myself feeble as a gallant, although I had experienced the reverse many a time. Louisa knew not my powers. She might imagine me impotent. I sweated almost with anxiety, which made me worse. She behaved extremely well; did not seem to remember the occasion of our meeting at all. I told her I was very dull. Said she, “People cannot always command their spirits.” The time of church was almost elapsed when I began to feel that I was still a man. I fanned the flame by pressing her alabaster breasts and kissing her delicious lips. I then barred the door of her dining-room, led her all fluttering into her bedchamber, and was just making a triumphal entry when we heard her landlady coming up. “O Fortune, why did it happen thus?” would have been the exclamation of a Roman bard. We were stopped most suddenly and cruelly from the fruition of each other. She ran out and stopped the landlady from coming up. Then returned to me in the dining-room. We fell into each other's arms, sighing and panting, “O dear, how hard this is.” “O Madam, see what you can contrive for me.” “Lord, Sir, I am so frightened.” [ Reply | More ]

I came softly into the room, and in a sweet delirium slipped into bed and was immediately clasped in her snowy arms and pressed to her milk-white bosom. Good heavens, what a loose did we give to amorous dalliance! The friendly curtain of darkness concealed our blushes. In a moment I felt myself animated with the strongest powers of love, and, from my dearest creature's kindness, had a most luscious feast. Proud of my godlike vigour, I soon resumed the noble game. I was in full glow of health. Sobriety had preserved me from effeminacy and weakness, and my bounding blood beat quick and high alarms. A more voluptuous night I never enjoyed. Five times was I fairly lost in supreme rapture. Louisa was madly fond of me; she declared I was a prodigy, and asked me if this was not extraordinary for human nature. I said twice as much might be, but this was not, although in my own mind I was somewhat proud of my performance. She said it was what there was no just reason to be proud of. But I told her I could not help it. She said it was what we had in common with the beasts. I said no. For we had it highly improved by the pleasures of sentiment. I asked her what she thought enough. She gently chid me for asking such questions, but said two times. I mentioned the Sunday's assignation, when I was in such bad spirits, told her in what agony of mind I was, and asked her if she would not have despised me for my imbecility. She declared she would not, as it was what people had not in their own power. [ Reply | More ]

I then went to Louisa and was permitted the rites of love with great complacency; yet I felt my passion for Louisa much gone. I felt a degree of coldness for her and I observed an affectation about her which disgusted me. I had a strong proof of my own inconstancy of disposition, and I considered that any woman who married me must be miserable. Here I argued wrong. For as a licentious love is merely the child of passion, it has no sure ground to hope for a long continuance, as passion may be extinguished with the most sudden and trifling breath of wind; but rational esteem founded on just motives must in all probability endure, especially when the opinion of the world and many other considerations contribute to strengthen and preserve it. Louisa and I began this day to read French. Our book was a little light piece of French gallantry entitled Journal Amoureux. She pronounced best and I translated best. Between us we did very well.

Louisa and I continued our study of French, which was useful as it gave us some employment and prevented us from tiring on account of conversation becoming insipid from a sameness that must necessarily happen when only two people are much together. I this day again had full fruition of her charms. I still, though, found that the warm enthusiasm of love was over. Yet I continued to mention my fears of her having some other favourite. I first said that I would watch her carefully, and would come at different times and by surprise if possible, that I might find out the truth. But I recovered myself and said I was sure I had no reason, so would not anxiously inquire. “Indeed, Sir,” said she, “it is better not. For it is a maxim with me, where there is no confidence, there is no breach of trust.” [ Reply | More ]

I this day began to feel an unaccountable alarm of unexpected evil: a little heat in the members of my body sacred to Cupid, very like a symptom of that distemper with which Venus, when cross, takes it into her head to plague her votaries. But then I had run no risks. I had been with no woman but Louisa; and sure she could not have such a thing. Away then with such idle fears, such groundless, uneasy apprehensions! When I came to Louisa's, I felt myself stout and well, and most courageously did I plunge into the fount of love, and had vast pleasure as I enjoyed her as an actress who had played many a fine lady's part. She was remarkably fond of me today, and sighing said, “What will become of me if I lose you now?” [ Reply | More ]

I rose very disconsolate, having rested very ill by the poisonous infection raging in my veins and anxiety and vexation boiling in my breast. I could scarcely credit my own senses. What! thought I, can this beautiful, this sensible, and this agreeable woman be so sadly defiled? Can corruption lodge beneath so fair a form? Can she who professed delicacy of sentiment and sincere regard for me, use me so very basely and so very cruelly? No, it is impossible. I have just got a gleet by irritating the parts too much with excessive venery. And yet these damned twinges, that scalding heat, and that deep-tinged loathsome matter are the strongest proofs of an infection. But she certainly must think that I would soon discover her falsehood. But perhaps she was ignorant of her being ill. A pretty conjecture indeed! No, she could not be ignorant. Yes, yes, she intended to make the most of me. And now I recollect that the day we went to Hayward's, she showed me a bill of thirty shillings about which she was in some uneasiness, and no doubt expected that I would pay it. But I was too cautious, and she had not effrontery enough to try my generosity in direct terms so soon after my letting her have two guineas. And am I then taken in? Am I, who have had safe and elegant intrigues with fine women, become the dupe of a strumpet? Am I now to be laid up for many weeks to suffer extreme pain and full confinement, and to be debarred all the comforts and pleasures of life? And then must I have my poor pocket drained by the unavoidable expense of it? And shall I no more (for a long time at least) take my walk, healthful and spirited, round the Park before breakfast, view the brilliant Guards on the Parade, and enjoy all my pleasing amusements? And then am I prevented from making love to Lady Mirabel, or any other woman of fashion? O dear, O dear! What a cursed thing this is! What a miserable creature am I! In this woeful manner did I melancholy ruminate. I thought of applying to a quack who would cure me quickly and cheaply. But then the horrors of being imperfectly cured and having the distemper thrown into my blood terrified me exceedingly. I therefore pursued my resolution of last night to go to my friend Douglas, whom I knew to be skillful and careful; and although it should cost me more, yet to get sound health was a matter of great importance, and I might save upon other articles. I accordingly went and breakfasted with him. . . . After breakfast Mrs. Douglas withdrew, and I opened my sad case to Douglas, who upon examining the parts, declared I had got an evident infection and that the woman who gave it me could not but know of it. I joked with my friend about the expense, asked him if he would take a draught on my arrears, and bid him visit me seldom that I might have the less to pay. To these jokes he seemed to give little heed, but talked seriously in the way of his business. And here let me make a just and true observation, which is that the same man as a friend and as a surgeon exhibits two very opposite characters. Douglas as a friend is most kind, most anxious for my interest, made me live ten days in his house, and suggested every plan of economy. But Douglas as a surgeon will be as ready to keep me long under his hands, and as desirous to lay hold of my money, as any man. In short, his views alter quite. I have to do not with him but his profession. As Lady Northumberland was to have a great rout next day, I delayed beginning my course of medicine till Friday night. Enraged at the perfidy of Louisa, I resolved to go and upbraid her most severely; but this I thought was not acting with dignity enough. So I would talk to her coolly and make her feel her own unworthiness. But hearing the Duke of Queensberry was in town, I thought I would go and have one more brush at him and hear what he had to say. . . . I then went to Louisa. With excellent address did I carry on this interview, as the following scene, I trust, will make appear. Louisa. My dear Sir! I hope you are well today. Boswell. Excessively well, I thank you. I hope I find you so. Louisa. No, really, Sir. I am distressed with a thousand things. (Cunning jade, her circumstances!) I really don't know what to do. Boswell. Do you know that I have been very unhappy since I saw you? Louisa. How so, Sir? Boswell. Why, I am afraid that you don't love me so well, nor have not such a regard for me, as I thought you had. Louisa. Nay, dear Sir! (Seeming unconcerned.) Boswell. Pray, Madam, have I no reason? Louisa. No, indeed, Sir, you have not. Boswell. Have I no reason, Madam? Pray think. Louisa. Sir! Boswell. Pray, Madam, in what state of health have you been in for some time? Louisa. Sir, you amaze me. Boswell. I have but too strong, too plain reason to doubt of your regard. I have for some days observed the symptoms of disease, but was unwilling to believe you so very ungenerous. But now, Madam, I am thoroughly convinced. Louisa. Sir, you have terrified me. I protest I know nothing of the matter. Boswell. Madam, I have had no connection with any woman but you these two months. I was with my surgeon this morning, who declared I had got a strong infection, and that she from whom I had it could not be ignorant of it. Madam, such a thing in this case is worse than from a woman of the town, as from her you may expect it. You have used me very ill. I did not deserve it. You know you said where there was no confidence, there was no breach of trust. But surely I placed some confidence in you. I am sorry that I was mistaken. Louisa. Sir, I will confess to you that about three years ago I was very bad. But for these fifteen months I have been quite well. I appeal to God Almighty that I am speaking true; and for these six months I have had to do with no man but yourself. Boswell. But by G–d, Madam, I have been with none but you, and here am I very bad. Louisa. Well, Sir, by the same solemn oath I protest that I was ignorant of it. Boswell. Madam, I wish much to believe you. But I own I cannot upon this occasion believe a miracle. Louisa. Sir, I cannot say more to you. But you will leave me in the greatest misery. I shall lose your esteem. I shall be hurt in the opinion of everybody, and in my circumstances. Boswell (to himself). What the devil does the confounded jilt mean by being hurt in her circumstances? This is the grossest cunning. But I won't take notice of that at all. — Madam, as to the opinion of everybody, you need not be afraid. I was going to joke and say that I never boast of a lady's favours. But I give you my word of honour that you shall not be discovered. Louisa. Sir, this is being more generous than I could expect. Boswell. I hope, Madam, you will own that since I have been with you I have always behaved like a man of honour. Louisa. You have indeed, Sir. Boswell (rising). Madam, your most obedient servant. During all this conversation I really behaved with a manly composure and polite dignity that could not fail to inspire an awe, and she was pale as ashes and trembled and faltered. Thrice did she insist on my staying a little longer, as it was probably the last time that I should be with her. She could say nothing to the purpose. And I sat silent. As I was going, said she, “I hope, Sir, you will give me leave to inquire after your health.” “Madam,” said I, archly, “I fancy it will be needless for some weeks.” She again renewed her request. But unwilling to be plagued any more with her, I put her off by saying I might perhaps go to the country, and left her. I was really confounded at her behaviour. There is scarcely a possibility that she could be innocent of the crime of horrid imposition. And yet her positive asseverations really stunned me. She is in all probability a most consummate dissembling whore. Thus ended my intrigue with the fair Louisa, which I flattered myself so much with, and from which I expected at least a winter's safe copulation. It is indeed very hard. I cannot say, like young fellows who get themselves clapped in a bawdy-house, that I will take better care again. For I really did take care. However, since I am fairly trapped, let me make the best of it. I have not got it from imprudence. It is merely the chance of war. [ Reply | More ]

I was not so well as yesterday. I was somewhat morose. I thought the treacherous Louisa deserved to suffer for her depravity. I therefore wrote her the following letter: Madam: — My surgeon will soon have a demand upon me of five guineas for curing the disease which you have given me. I must therefore remind you of the little sum which you had of me some time ago. You cannot have forgot upon what footing I let you have it. I neither paid it for prostitution nor gave it in charity. It was fairly borrowed, and you promised to return it. I give you notice that I expect to have it before Saturday sennight. I have been very bad, but I scorn to upbraid you. I think it below me. If you are not rendered callous by a long course of disguised wickedness, I should think the consideration of your deceit and baseness, your corruption both of body and mind, would be a very severe punishment. Call not that a misfortune which is the consequence of your own unworthiness. I desire no mean evasions. I want no letters. Send the money sealed up. I have nothing more to say to you. James Boswell. This, I thought, might be a pretty bitter potion to her. Yet I thought to mention the money was not so genteel. However, if I get it (which is not probable), it will be of real service to me; and to such a creature as her a pecuniary punishment will give most pain. Am not I too vindictive? It appears so; but upon better consideration I am only sacrificing at the shrine of Justice; and sure I have chosen a victim that deserves it. [ Reply | More ]

This forenoon a maid from Louisa left a packet for me. It was most carefully sealed up, “by the hands of attention,” but was not addressed to me. I opened it up and found my two guineas returned, without a single word written. I felt a strange kind of mixed confusion. My tender heart relented. I thought I had acted too harshly to her. I imagined she might — perhaps — have been ignorant of her situation. I was so foolish as to think of returning her the money and writing her a letter of atonement. I have too much of what Shakespeare calls “the milk of human kindness.” I mentioned the thing to Dempster. He said it was just a piece of deep artifice in her. I resolved to think no more on the matter, and was glad that I had come off two guineas better than I expected. [ Reply | More ]

. . Macbeth was played by Holland, who played it but poorly and affected us little. I went home with Temple and sat till near twelve, and was very happy. I should have mentioned last night that I met with a monstrous big whore in the Strand, whom I had a great curiosity to lubricate, as the saying is. I went into a tavern with her, where she displayed to me all the parts of her enormous carcass; but I found that her avarice was as large as her a——, for she would by no means take what I offered her. I therefore with all coolness pulled the bell and discharged the reckoning, to her no small surprise and mortification, who would fain have provoked me to talk harshly to her and so make a disturbance. But I walked off with the gravity of a Barcelonian bishop. I had an opportunity tonight of observing the rascality of the waiters in these infamous sort of taverns. They connive with the whores, and do what they can to fleece the gentlemen. I was on my guard, and got off pretty well. I was so much in the lewd humour that I felt myself restless, and took a little girl into a court; but wanted vigour. So I went home, resolved against low street debauchery. [ Reply | More ]

Melancholy cannot be clearly proved to others, so it is better to be silent about it. I should have been at Lady Northumberland's rout tonight, but my barber fell sick; so I sallied to the streets, and just at the bottom of our own, I picked up a fresh, agreeable young girl called Alice Gibbs. We went down a lane to a snug place, and I took out my armour, but she begged that I might not put it on, as the sport was much pleasanter without it, and as she was quite safe. I was so rash as to trust her, and had a very agreeable congress. [ Reply | More ]

Much concern was I in from the apprehension of being again reduced to misery, and in so silly a way too. My benevolence indeed suggested to me to put confidence in the poor girl; but then said cool reason, “What abandoned, deceitful wretches are these girls, and even supposing her honest, how could she know with any certainty that she was well?” Temple was much vexed and dreaded the worst.

Mr. James Coutts told me that he and his brother and Mr. Cochrane were to dine with a Mr. Trotter, upholsterer, a particular friend, and that he never went thither without carrying somebody along with him; so he insisted that I should go. I accordingly went. . . . We had a good dinner and plenty of wine. I resolved to be merry while I could, and soon see whether the foul fiend of the genitals had again prevailed. We were plain and hearty and comfortable; much better than the people of high fashion. There was a Miss Rutherford there, a Scotch girl who had been long in America. She and I chatted very neatly. We stayed and drank tea and coffee; and at seven, being in high glee, I called upon Miss Watts, whom I found by herself, neatly dressed and looking very well. I was free and easy with her, and begged that she would drink a glass of wine with me at the Shakespeare, which she complied with. I told her my name was Macdonald, and that I was a Scotch Highlander. She said she liked them much, as they had always spirit and generosity. We were shown into a handsome room and had a bottle of choice sherry. We sat near two hours and became very cheerful and agreeable to each other. I told her with a polite freedom, “Madam, I tell you honestly I have no money to give you, but if you allow me favours without it, I shall be much obliged to you.” She smiled and said she would. Her maid then brought her a message that a particular friend from the country was waiting for her; so that I was obliged to give her up this night, as I determined to give her no money. She left me pleased, and said she hoped to have the pleasure of my company at tea when it was convenient. This I faithfully promised and took as a good sign of her willingness to establish a friendly communication with me. I then sallied forth to the Piazzas in rich flow of animal spirits and burning with fierce desire. I met two very pretty little girls who asked me to take them with me. “My dear girls,” said I, “I am a poor fellow. I can give you no money. But if you choose to have a glass of wine and my company and let us be gay and obliging to each other without money, I am your man.” They agreed with great good humour. So back to the Shakespeare I went. “Waiter,” said I, “I have got here a couple of human beings; I don't know how they'll do.” “I'll look, your Honour,” cried he, and with inimitable effrontery stared them in the face and then cried, “They'll do very well.” “What,” said I, “are they good fellow-creatures? Bring them up, then.” We were shown into a good room and had a bottle of sherry before us in a minute. I surveyed my seraglio and found them both good subjects for amorous play. I toyed with them and drank about and sung Youth's the Season and thought myself Captain Macheath; and then I solaced my existence with them, one after the other, according to their seniority. I was quite raised, as the phrase is: thought I was in a London tavern, the Shakespeare's Head, enjoying high debauchery after my sober winter. I parted with my ladies politely and came home in a glow of spirits. [ Reply | More ]

As I was coming home this night I felt carnal inclinations raging thro’ my frame. I determined to gratify them. I went to St. James’s Park and like Sir John Brute, picked up a Whore. For the first time did I engage in Armour which I found but a dull satisfaction. She who submitted to my lusty embraces was a young shropshire Girl only seventeen, very well-looked, her name Elizabeth Parker. Poor being. She has a sad time of it! [ Reply | More ]

At night I stroled into the Park and took the first Whore I met, whom I without many words copulated with free from danger, being safely sheeth’d. She was ugly and lean and her breath smelt of spirits. I never asked her name. When it was done she slunk off. I had a low opinion of this gross practice and resolved to do it no more.

At the bottom of the Hay-market I picked up a strong jolly young damsel, and taking her under the Arm I conducted her to Westminster-Bridge, and then in armour compleat did I engage her upon this noble Edifice. The whim of doing it there with the Thames rolling below us amused me much. Yet after the brutish appetite was sated I could not but despise myself for being so closely united with such a low Wretch.

In the Strand, I picked up a profligate wretch and gave her sixpence. She allowed me entrance. But the miscreant refused me performance. I was much stronger than her; and volens nolens** pushed her up against the Wall. She however gave a sudden spring from me; and screaming out, a parcel of more Whores and Soldiers came to her relief. “Brother Soldiers (said I) should not a halfpay Officer r-g-r for sixpence? And here has she used me so and so.” I got them on my side and abused her in blackguard stile, and then left them. [ Reply | More ]

Since my being honoured with the friendship of Mr Johnson, I have more seriously considered the dutys of Morality and Religion, and the dignity of Human Nature. I have considered that promiscuous concubinage is certainly wrong. It is contributing one’s share towards bringing confusion and misery into Society; and it is a transgression of the Laws of the Allmighty Creator who has ordained Marriage for the mutual comfort of the Sexes, and the Procreation and right educating of Children. Sure it is, that if all the men and women in Britain were merely to consult Animal gratification, Society would be a most shocking scene; Nay it would soon cease altogether. Notwithstanding of the Reflections, I have stooped to mean profligacy even yesterday. However, I am now resolved to guard against it. [ Reply | More ]

I should have mentioned that on Monday night [two days earlier], coming up the Strand, I was tapp’d on the shoulder by a fine fresh lass. I went home with her. She was an Officer’s daughter, and born at Gibratar. I could not resist indulging myself with the enjoyment of her. Surely, in such a Situation, when the Woman is allready abandoned, the crime must be alleviated, tho’ in strict morality, illicite love is allways wrong. [ Reply | More ]

Possession is 90% of what is important in a financial dispute. They have 2 months of rent; likely they are keeping it whether you occupy the apartment or not.
