    jayatl56 saidThis was actually about 8 years ago but I think it might have effected my last relationship (of 4 years). I think my BF just wanted more excitement in his life. More adventure, more holidays, more everything. The 30 year age difference didn't help matters much, I don't think. My feeling is that I'm settled, don't go for the party lifestyle although I do go out and I do enjoy myself (I love to dance to oldies).

    Am I the only guy who enjoys staying home, dinners, movies, theater and a weekend trips? Do guys who are opposites- party person v home body make it together? I was all for him going out with his friends on weekends and we did go out together but more like dinners etc and the occasional dance.

    So I'm trying to figure out how to meet guys and let them know I'm not the going out every weekend person.


    how about trying to date guys in your age group


    now why do you want to go and state the obvious?

    One remark from 8 years ago affected you that much?

    Try therapy.

    jayat56, consider that you are not boring, but that he was bored - there's a huge difference between the two. icon_wink.gif

    Are you an introvert? In which case, so what? That's the way you are.

    Being an introvert doesnt mean one is a hermit. But you do have to manage your energy. When you are out and about, you are running on "battery power" and will get back to some quiet solitude to "recharge."

    I'm far from being an introvert and I don't know how this happened. I do go out from time to time to have a beer and chat with guys at the bar (not a club but a Cheers sort of place frequented by older guys and those who admire them). It's a friendly atmosphere and I enjoy it but I just don't do it every weekend - actually maybe once a month. Otherwise, I'd rather go boating/fishing with my brother, stay home, cook and watch a movie or read.

    When I was in Prague I went out all the time. There was always something happening. As the owner of the company I went to functions constantly. Chambers of Commerce parties, Embassy parties, opening parties... etc. I was sort of a big fish in a small pond and invited to everything. During the last few years I just got burned out and maybe that's carried over into my personal social life.
