    Dating Game

    I thought we could start a new game -- the Dating Game

    Rules:
    * 1 person asks a dating/marriage related question
    * first person to answer gets to answer question and ask one of their own.
    * If two people answer, whoever answered first gets to ask their question.
    * Any dating related question goes - whether serious "How long to wait for him to call me back?" or not-so-serious "Should I wear the red shirt or the blue one on my date?" or fun "which is more important: money or looks?"
    * Keep it rated PG!!!!
    * Have fun!


    I'll go first::
    Can men and women be just friends? (think Harry and Sally)

    Absolutely! I have male friends that I've never been romantically involved with, and Bruce has females friends just the same.


    After seven (HAPPY) years together, is marriage really necessary?
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    Only if you think it is! If someone else tell you that you need it, then that what THEY need to see for you!


    Would you date someone with kids?

    I married someone with kids even though I didn't have any in my previous marriage. While I would have preferred someone without any "baggage" to speak of (if you know what I mean) at this point in my life, I don't think I would have met someone who was single, rich, childless and non-psychotic! Besides, you can't help who you fall in love with!! Happily married just the same - love truly is lovelier the second time around for me. His kids are adults anyway and they deal with the whole thing in their own way.

    Do you think that age difference is a big deal in a relationship?

    It can be, as the relationship progresses the gap sometimes seems to get wider.

    Is it necessary to be in a relationship to feel "whole"?

    No. I have been single and unattached since my divorce 8 years ago. I have a very happy and fulfilled life without a partner or steady. I have my two adult kids, my parents (thankfully still), siblings, friends, job, etc. I feel very fortunate for what I have and am very happy. People sometimes feel badly for me because I am "alone", but seriously, I am never alone. I have the 4 cats and also I have God to talk to whenever I need him.

    Does there have to be a dominant person in a relationship?

    Only you can make you happy. If you need someone to feel whole you are carrying baggage that will undermine any relationship.

    Only if the person "needs" a dominate partner. I know many people who have stronger partners because they need them to be stronger. But in my opinion, a balanced relationship has someone dominate in one area or another. In my home, I count on hubby to be organized and aware of who's doing what when. He counts on me to be grounded and and realiztic.

    How important is it to be liked by your partner's family?

    Not very, unless your partner is very close to them.

    Would you date someone who didn't like your pets?

    It is difficult. I have dated two different men who were not pet lovers. The one would not even let Casey near him unless he was sitting down and then she had to quietly sit next to him so he could pet her.

    The other guy I dated just didn't think cats should be inside 24/7. He kept saying they would be better off if they were outside. That one didn't last long either. I will never give up my pets for a man.

    Would you date someone that was separated but still married?

    As the one on the other end of the question (being that I am separated but not yet divorced) would I like someone to want to date me, of course.

    But would I date someone right now. Certainly not. I am not in an emotional place for that and I am still married, for another 6 months. So I would not date anyone at this time.


    New question: Would you date someone more than a foot taller/shorter than yourself?

    I would, in theory. Paul is several inches taller than me, but not a whole foot!

    Would you date someone of a different religion?

    It depends. There are religions that are not far removed from each other and others that are totally separated. I personally could not marry into a RC , Jewish, or Islamic faiths.

    Would you give up a place you love to live for someone in another part of the world.

    I don't truthfully know, it would depend how in love I was with said person. I mean, it really is uprooting your whole life but if I was completely in love with someone I would say yes, most definitely.

    Do yo believe there is one soul-mate for everyone?
