    A shepherd mix. I'm not sure what she was mixed with, though. She has a curly tail like a whippet, so maybe that.

    That's a great story about your great-grandfather! I was in Amsterdam. I call it the land of the super-models, since so many of the people I saw (male and female) were tall, thin, and beautiful. Hmmm. Maybe I shouldn't take a woman there... haha :wink:

    Hey, don't give this conversation a moment's thought. We're just making small talk here. Be with your family. I'm very sorry for your loss.

    For those of us still waiting on the very same miracle that you are waiting for, attacking you would be like attacking ourselves. We may even have similar lists to yours just a few lines could be changed. I wish I could say more than hang in there but I feel a bit overwhelmed. You alone know your walk with God and how you relate to him on the very topic. I am certain that He does reveal things to his children. I am sure that he can and will reveal that special lady to you at the right time. Maybe it is a question of geography. Ask God to bring her near.

    Sorry kind of feel too young to be adding my two pence.

    I would have to be knocked off my feet if I were to date.

    I don't know, it doesn't seem totally farfetched.

    I hate when people say that we should lower our standards though. How would you feel if the person who chose you, lowered their standards in order to do so? Wouldn't you feel insulted?

    About online dating: I have tried it and met some truly crazy women. Two would not be happy unless I drove a stake through the heart of my ex-wife. A third wept within 60 seconds of meeting me.

    My anecdotal experience: there is a reason why (older) women are on these sites:

    They have major problems.

    Having said this, I expect women would have a similar complaint.

    Now for the good news: while it appears to be true that the loony factor is higher online than in the general population, there HAVE to be SOME women out there who do not fall into the “I love you, now get into the freezer” category.

    There have to be.

    I came close to hearing the same recently on the site. The notion of altering what I’m seeking (which yielded two secular prospects) seems odd. They were not appropriate due to absence of belief and tolerance for my purpose. I have no difficulty meeting men who have the qualities I’m seeking.

    The idea of making it easier for Christian men lends the suggestion they’re unable to measure up or are lesser in some way. That sounds more like charity than vetting a marriage partner.

    On lowering standards: I understand the objection, but standards are often unrealistically high.

    In the world of online dating at least, I believe there have been actual studies showing that the way online dating is setup causes people to apply wildly unreasonable standards.

    There’s no such thing as high or low standards. They’re called preferences. And everyone has them. Some more than others.

    The issue is rejection and the reality that dating (on and offline) rewards beauty, fitness, and wealth more significantly than other attributes.

    My point - and I believe there are studies that demonstrate this - is that online dating in particular has the effect of causing people to raise the standards they would otherwise apply in real life. And to the point of being quite unrealistic.

    If they’re willing to live with the consequences of that decision that’s all that matters. Whether its realistic or not.

    I can add spending most of my time at sea to the list. Not much hope there then...
