[ - ] Ok, here's a question for you: I havent had sex in 5 years. i am a widow with children and havent had any luck dating. I tried but it hasnt worked. I also dont have the self-assurance to hang out in a hotel bar and none of my male friends are single so no friends with be efit possibilitiies. I've worked hard to build our family and my career and I'm not that concerned about not being in a couple. But I really miss sex with another person. I have been wondering about a male prostitute. I wouldnt do it, too concerned about the legality and morality of it. But I wonder if it is a viable option. WDYT? 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

I think I would try an online site first. My friend is on Match and thinks she's going to find second DH there, but all she gets is short-term, sex-based flings that fizzle out. So there are definitely guys on there just looking for sex, and you wouldn't have to feel icky about paying someone. I think Craigs List also has a section for sex-only hook-ups, but considering how shady CL types are even when they're just buying your coffee table, I don't think I'd go that route. Good luck.

What exactly is holding you back from frequenting hotel bars? They are fun, bc there is a range of different personality types (some locals, some travelers just passing through). They are probably the one kind of bar where it ISN'T scary or awkward to hang out by yourself. What keeps me from doing this is the pricy drinks & expensive food. If money isn't a concern, then why not go for it? [ Reply | More ]

Lots of Connecticut towns fit the second half of your question, and you wouldn't need a mortgage necessarily. Look in the corridor from Old Saybrook to New London. Maybe rent in a few different towns this year to really see what the summer vibe is before buying. If the market continues as it has been, there will be bargains to be had at the end of this season.
