*een there Now over it's profile:

At 64 yo I've been in a number of relationships and gone thru a lot of life's experiences. We all have rocky times in our lives but I have done my best with each instance and am the happiest and most successful person I know. I am upbeat and optimistic, and always try to make others feel the same.

I am a fiction (video) and non-fiction (books) writer. Several years ago I started perusing Dear Cupid for story and character ideas for my fictional stuff. On November 10, 2015, I had shoulder surgery (rotator cuff), which resulted in my left arm being tied to my side, 24/7, for the next month. I was here at home and continued to browse Dear Cupid, and finally decided to post some answers. I am giving what I hope is helpful Dear Cupid advice for any situations where I feel I may be of some help. I read most of the Questions but answer only a minority of them. If I don't answer a question, it is either because 1) I don't feel I have any good advice to give or add, or 2) the info provided in the Question isn't sufficient for me to make a judgement.

My favorite quote: "People tend to believe two things...what they want to believe and what scares the hell out of them." I read that in 'The Week' magazine and I'm so often reminded of it. I don't know who came up with that.

A.   19 June 2017: Get a good car...first and foremost, one that is reliable and safe. And get it checked out by a pro. Repair bills on a car with 90,000 or more miles can bankrupt you. Past that, you should get a car that is comfortable and you like. Once ... (read in full...)

A.   6 June 2017: Yes, to answer your question, he is insecure. Plus there are probably other underlying factors in his negativity. One thing is for sure...he is RUDE!!! Ask yourself: Can I put up with a person this rude for the rest of my life??? This would be a ... (read in full...)

A.   20 April 2017: I don't think you're any less secure than most women would be when their husbands watch porn, don't fulfill their wife's needs, and then the husband lies in denial to her. Nearly all men automatically feel guilt and shame when watching porn beh... (read in full...)

I have my ex husband's last name. My current boyfriend wants me to change back to my maiden name. Should I?

A.   9 April 2017: WiseOwlE is right...what you are proposing is ridiculous and you'd look like a fool to everyone including your wife. I doubt this guy would have kissed your wife if she hadn't been flirting with him in the first place. And why would you want t... (read in full...)

Why show the picture, to show me she looked like that porn star?

A.   9 April 2017: He's the one who is insecure. He needs to puff himself up by letting you know that he could be going out with an attractive woman who is as hot as a porn star. And you're supposed to think that's a big deal and do everything you can to keep him. ... (read in full...)

Should I try online dating?

A.   23 March 2017: Your boyfriend is being very childish about this, especially at his age (assuming he is around your stated age). Your ex was certainly exposed to your laundry when you were together, and he is the father to the child who is generating some of the ... (read in full...)
