So is there a Woot Woot for the old Grayma? ICUB42 informed me that an old fashioned wolf game was up under Snowy's name with some of our old friends playing so decided I would have to get my two cents worth in. I promise to do all the things you ask, only with the exception of trying to stay active. Am hoping people will remind me.

I know, I know, but I did get my active subscription money back into Jake. Can't believe it, but the Good Lord had to be sending me messages too because my subscription ran out April 1, and I logged back in on March 30th to receive the notice that I had 2 days to renew. I had been gone I believe around 160 days, so am glad to be back. And playing a wolf game must have been about the last thing I did as I still have on my Werewolf Avatar.

Hi Everybody!

*pondering*

Hey...while we're sitting here, if you don't mind Snowy, I'd like to know everyone's opinion on this little "opinion" I just read.

"Men typically fall in love faster than women do and they're more likely to be the first one to start saying words of love in the
beginning of a relationship."

My opinion? I ain't buying it!

In my experience, men will say (and do) whatever they have to to get what they want. A man may very well claim love beore a woman does but only because woman won't usually say it until she actually means it.

Be sure to follow you dreams; otherwise you'll end up working for someone who had the guts to follow his.

Thank you, Stewie, for all the sweetness. I have missed so many of my long time friends and fellow WW game players. I kept thinking in my absence that some day I would get up enough nerve to mod one of these games, but it seems a lot of my story telling has gone by the wayside.

About admissions of love - looking over the four generations of my life - in my father's time the men were not as vocal about their love - they seemed to think it was better to show their love than it was to admit it to anyone. People my age, we are the ones who may be lucky enough to find love the second time around and I remember for myself the guy was more vocal than I was - I didn't trust my feelings enough to say anything about them. The male at this age have much more confidence and maybe even a bigger gene pool to select from so he is more apt to speak his mind first.

Now adults my own children's age. Still being romantics and searching for that little house with the white picket fence, a couple of kids, etc., I feel the woman will be the one who speaks up. She is aware there are plenty of women out there for a man to pick from and when she does find a man who fits most of her dreams she wants him to know how she feels, as she is aware that if she sees the good in him, others will too, so best she speak up.

Young lovers, oh it would be so nice to be that age and know what I know now. The girls are busy searching out the alpha males, just as the guys are busy looking for the alpha females. Both are equally hurt by a relationship gone bad. But from watching my own grandchildren I see the males falling harder and faster at this age, than the females. Even though some people think the only reason the guys at this age say "I love you" is to gain sexual favors from the female, not all the good ones work this way. At this age, the girls just get mad, tell everyone what a louse the guy is and moves on. The guys, however, are struck by their first denial. It is an attack on their manhood and they are much harder hit. It takes the male of this age much longer to regain his swagger and move on.

A word or two from someone who has been here a couple times or two - no matter what age, friendship and respect have to come before any love, no matter who says it first.

As usual I have gotten way too verbose. Forgive me and let the game begin.

Oh boy, Grayma is spot on. When I met my husband, I took one look at him and made up my mind I was going to marry him. I really was the aggressive one. He never stood a chance.

Fast forward, my 40-something sons both have had their hearts broken by thoughtless women in their lives. My oldest was married 3 times, all 3 times the wives left him. My younger son went through a rough period of time, but has managed to overcome the problems and work it out. Maybe because I'm their mother but I see how this effected them.

As for men . . . . . young and not so young. Young men, know how to use the words "I love you" - and unfortunately, the young gal, who's in cloud nine for hearing those words, is gullible enough to believe them. BAM - they are into a physical relationship. BAM - the girl is even more convinced the guy loves her. . . . and he's even more convinced these "I love you" words work magic. There is a huge difference between love, lust and infatuation. I think both young men and young women get these confused. Older folks. . . . . . are wiser, but can still make this mistake. I do believe both sexes can abuse these words to get what they want. It's all about knowing the true definition of what love is.

Back in my day . . . . . I don't think any guy told me he loved me while dating, except for my husband, and then . . .. we were already in love and engaged. But in school, I don't think any fella uttered these words. I was dating a guy once, very excited about the relationship - he was HOT! Was talking to a GF about him. . . . . she asked if he told me he loved me yet. . . . I said no. She said, don't worry, I bet he will soon, just wait and see, don't worry! I thought. . . . . but I don't want him to tell me he loves me, unless he really does, and how can he . . . we JUST started dating. This girl, did not know what real love was, and unfortunately, she slept with every boy she dated. Yea, she was looking for "love" in all the wrong ways. . . . . . and not one of her boyfriends, actually loved her.

As for the question, do guys fall in love faster than gals . . . . . . falling in love "for real" - I say it could be about even. Not all men are snakes and not all women are stupid.

I would rather be shown than told. I dated a guy in the past who over our 4 year relationship may have actually said it five times. Despite this,I never doubted how he felt. He would do small things like show up at work with even a small token like a used book by my favorite author he found at one of the vacant homes they were working on, I would get flowers for now reason - when they would be delivered other ladies would ask "oh, oh, what'd he do" and I could honestly say he didn't do anything. Little things like that mean a lot.
Anyone can say the words, but is harder to show it. As Extreme ask "What would you say if took those words away?"

Wow! Way to go, Bobbi!!

I admit, I don't know really, what that kind of love is I guess. Romance? Nah...that's really just a fairy tale to me. (I know, mom..those walls)

My boyfriends all said it first but I didn't believe them. I figured lust, yes...but not love....especially in our teenage years. But still I was married at 18 and had my daughter when I was 21. He knew I wasn't in love with him, the whole time, yet he continued to profess his love for me. It didn't help...we divorced 6 years later. Then I turned around and married someone else 2 years after that. (our first son was a year old at the time) Who said it first? I don't remember. They're just words in our world of many words... I wouldn't believe it anyway. I know better!

I must agree with Grayma though (I usually do) "..friendship and respect have to come before any love..". If you find it, I congratulate you...you made the right choices in life!!

Sorry Jay and Stewie... I believe this old gent will join this game and make you share the joys of these fine ladies!

I hadn't planned on it, but seeing some great "old - as in time known, not age" friends in the game, I could not resist.

Great to see you back Grayma! Missed you. I guess I could go on and on about the people who have joined this... I really am glad to see you all and suspect we could have one heck of a game. My only other side comment...Bobbi... well never would have I suspected that of you! Love at first site.

In any case, I met the love of my life in college (right after I got out of the service) but I was fairly timid. I had been on dates before that, but they were "just" dates (and no, it was never about sexual favors - honest!).

We were in the same basic Math class where we were allowed to go at our own pace. There was no formal class sitting arrangement, we just came to class, sat where ever we wanted (sort of looked like a library set up) and would study the materials and take the chapter tests, you could take 2 tests a week if you desired.

Long story... cut short, 4 of us connected and sat together... just seemed to get along. My wife was a Catholic who went through K-grade 8 at the local Catholic school. They did not teach roman numerals. Part of this math class concerned roman numerals, and she did not get it, and of course, I knew it... so I tutored her, and yes, while doing so, felt myself falling in love with this older woman (she is 3 months older than I).

We got through that part and I was close to finishing the class some 6 weeks before it was scheduled to change... on my last night in the class I knew I had to ask her out or risk never seeing her again. She accepted my date request. This was the first week of May... in July, we were at my brother's house and she started to cry. I asked her why, she said she didn't know if we could raise our kids Catholic because I wasn't. I looked at her and told her I thought her concern was a little pre-mature, maybe we should talk about it after we settle whether we are getting married or not... I proposed, she accepted... and this November will be our 35th wedding anniversary. Yes, I said I love you to her often, and she back to me... though to this day, I sort of think she proposed to me in her own way! We compromised, and did not raise our children Catholic but as Christians.

I know not all men say it for that reason - but it seems a lot do (especially the younger ones) - and the girls fall for it and then are surprised when runs away when she gives him the news.

, felt myself falling in love with this older woman (she is 3 months older than I).

Haha - you sound like my husband (I was born on March 6 his birthday is the 23 so I am only 17 days older but he loves to point it out (especially this year as we both turned 40).

He and I took a LOT longer to get together for good than you and your wife - we had an on and off relationship for years - sometimes it was 'off' for years at a time but then we'd run into each other in some bizarre place or way so we'd talk. Then he would harass me until I agreed to go out with him again, it would last a little while then he would take off. Months or a year would go by and we'd see each other (again in odd places neither of us had a reason to be) and the cycle would start again.
The last time we got back together was because out of nowhere I got an email from him that turned out to be a virus. So I called him to say ",hey you'd better let people know not to open the attachment", I figured that would be it, but he started to harass me again and I relented but told him "this is your last chnace, I'm tired of this game" - we have been back together for almost 3 years now, living together for just over 1. Hopefully this time it sticks.

My father asked my mother out countless times before she agreed to go out with him. My grandmother pushed her into it with the logic maybe he'd stop asking after that and hey he may just turn out to be a nice guy. They have been together now for almost 48 years, and will celebrate their 44th anniversary next week.
There was a major power outage that night that knocked the electricity out throughout Ontario and the NorthEast United States. That is most likely the only reason my father remembers it as well as he does.

Thanks Randy, I'm sure we can. We both have great models to follow in our parents. As noted, mine have been together close to 50 years. And his have been together about the same length of time (I'm guessing anyway - his eldest brother is 47). He has finally realised what he should have 19 years ago. Better late than never I guess. :-)

Congrats Jayo! Married life is a wonderful life. . . . . I wish you and the soon to be Mrs. the best life has to offer.

2 more to go . . . . then we'll get this game off the ground. Should be soon. Thank you for being patient.

Tell ya what LH, this week's jackpot is 50mil. If I win not only will I get tickets for you and your daughter to go to Europe, I'll even spring for seats IN FRONT of the curtain. Yes back of the plane goes to the same place, but not nearly as comfortably.

Be sure to follow you dreams; otherwise you'll end up working for someone who had the guts to follow his.

The jackpot I thought was 50 mil was won last week so it is back down to a mere 19,000,000, But the other national lottwry ( which has much bette odds) is 43,000,000. Even after I buy the house I've been eyeing I'll still be left with 40,000,000 so i may still be able to pull it offvf

I have sat back and read all the wonderful marriage stories. Congratulations to so many who have been successful and a big congrats to Jayo on venturing into married life. The big question has been answered, and now comes the wedding planning - remain cool and cooperative - sometimes too many people get involved and get their feelings hurt if things don't go the way they hope it will. Most important - this blessed day belongs to you and your bride so share what you can and enjoy your day. If someone else is mad, when you are celebrating your Golden Wedding Anniversary they probably won't be there to help you celebrate anyhow. This sounds kind of bad, that you will have problems getting your wedding off the ground. I don't mean that at all, I am just trying to impress there may be some things you two will have to compromise on with family and others, but most important, it is your and your bride's wedding.

Most of our players are married folks or else still fairly young and still, what do I say, searching? I am the old lady here who acts like I have such sage advice. Truth is, I have been divorced for 38 years. I have often wondered if I really loved my husband so much that I could never consider another man in my life or what. My marriage was abusive and my son did see a great deal of the roughness, as well as being caught in the middle sometimes. When my two younger daughters arrived and the honeymoon period of having new babies in the home expired, I knew I could not put them through what their brother had been through. There is much more to the story, but I never wanted to make the mistake of falling for another man who might harm my children. I told their father to make sure he never did anything that would shame his children - and he did do a pretty good job of that with the three we had. He and I are better friends now than when we were married, and we have lived about six blocks from each other for those 38 years. I only wish he would have been the father ICU needed and deserved. I have kept saying I wished I could stop the children in my family from being attracted to abusive mates. No such luck. So if I live long enough I hope to guide my grandchildren. Of my 19, 4 of them are married and, so far, things seem to be ok.

Well I have gone off on a tangent again running my mouth. Yes, Snowy, I'm in a safe place where they take care of me so I should be able to play this game to the fullest, without blabbering during the game. I've already said enough. Hugs to all players and remember as Snowy said, respect and the game should soon beginning.

Just a bit of advice......try not to go into debt for the wedding. If you guys are artsy or crafty come up with ideas from whatever you both like and then try to make it yourself since you have over a year. Plus it would be cool time for the two of you to spend together.

If not I am sure you can always find a cheaper one.....it is an amazing day, but it is only one day.....do not pay for it the rest of your life.

I could tell you horror stories of friends....but I will not.

My ex-hubby and I chose the first option. It was a lot more personal and fun. Plus we spent less the $2500.

Both are beautiful and memorible.


Like what you love, and love what you got.

Congrats Jayo!

Habs, let me know when you win that lottery, I'll be happy to sit in coach... but would love to go. Ireland is one of those countries I would love to visit (along with Germany, England and Austrailia)... I have already been to Canada and Mexico.. and it looks like we're going to Canada again this summer if I can pull off for a vacation.

Grayma, glad you're in a good place... and you are NOT blabbering at all... love your stories, love knowing more about you.

And I agree with LH... don't go in debt. We were sort of lucky... my wife's family have money... they paid for the wedding (traditional method), though it was not fancy and our reception was at the home of a family friend, so yes, there was some negotating on saving a few bucks too.

WHY? If you don't have to!

Canada is a pretty big country - where did you go? Where are you planning on going this time round?

Weddings don't haveto e expensive to be nice. The first time my brother got married, they had the ceremony in our parents backyard (they live out in the country on 2 acres - the whole property is surrounded by woods on all sides). He just got married a 2nd time this past February. He and his wife and baby took all 4 parents on a cruise which was as far as they knew just a trip. They surprised everyone by getting married on a beach on one of the islands - no one knew there were going to do it, so it was just them and the parents. Cost them only the price of the trip (which they were paying for anyway) and no having to deal with the politics of who to and not to invite. Besides, they had been living in Alberta (where she is from) and just moved back to London. So all her friends and family are thousands of miles away and most would not have been able to make it due to time or money restraints. This way they didn't have to worry about any of that.
I am somewhat "odd" as far as being female is concerned. I told Rich if we do it, I either want to do the beach in Cuba or City Hall. Not into spending a year planning something that will cost an arm and a leg.
After my one cousin got married, his parents told his younger brother - if you just have a small wedding, we will just give you the 40K this just cost us. He didn't - he married a Croation woman - they had over 600 people at their wedding! That is INSANE !

Hi

Congrats Jayo

I deffintely agree that men can fall in love and say it first. I also agree that some men fall in love faster and harder. I had 2 uncles that ended up committing sudicide because of their long term girlfriends breaking up with them. Both of them even had young children. There has also been several times that my younger brother has threatened sudicide because his girlfriend of 5 years would break up with him and/ or started dating someone else.

When my sister got married none of our family even got to go to the wedding. She went on vacation with her fiancée and his family. On Saturday morning she talked to my mom and said she was at the Hudson River. Saturday night about midnight my mom gets a call from my sister saying that she was in Las Vegas and just got married. My mom was not happy about that phone call. 11 days after that my older brother got married at the court house while my mom babysat their 1 month old baby. Then they had a little reception at their house were we got to see the wedding video. They even fed each other cake. 7 years later they got a divorce.


I'm back

I had a friend do something similar to what my brother and his current wife did, but instead of inviting their parents on a cruse. they invited everyone to a BBQ in their backyard. It wasn't until after we ate, they made the announcement "Hey guys, we have a confession to make, this is not just a BBQ, it is our wedding." - They had been living together for about 5 years, both had jobs making over 60K a year and really needed nothing. They didn't want to make anyone feel obligated to come or buy an expensive gift or spend money they may or may not be able to afford on an outfit they'd only wear once. Not hurt feelings over the wedding party, and cost next to nothing since it was BYOB and though it wasn't technically a "pot-luck", everyone brought something to share. It cost them 20 Steaks. It was awesome.

We did not have our guests buy us anything. We asked for honeymoon $$$ cause we both had everything we needed. We rented a house in Jamaica for a week that was fully staffed and all inclusive. Private beach.....it was great. Only $4200 with airfare. We had to pay some of it but we had been saving on the wedding.

Like what you love, and love what you got.

My motto is. . . . . it's not how much money, etc. you put in the wedding but how much love, time and commitment you put into the marriage. My husband was in the military at the time we married, and he gave me 3 weeks notice to put the wedding completely together. I had some things done already, but up to that point, I didn't have a date. Thank you Navy. . . . . . It was not an expensive, elaborate wedding, but it was full of love, and that's what counts. Our "honeymoon" was traveling across the country to where he was stationed. That was an adventure, as we got to stop and see a lot of things in the Western part of the U.S. It was an adventure, and at the same time romantic . . . in a way. If I could take my kids to where their father and I started our marriage out, I'd do it in a heart beat. We were young, naive and in love. Nothing could stop us. Many moons later. . . . . I have no regrets about marrying this man. He's my best friend, and we make a great team.

Welcome 21 Kal! Shouldn't be long now.

3 weeks - wow that is not much time. Though I am pretty sure my parents' was 'thrown' together almost as fast. They got married in mid-April 1969, and he was posted to Germany at the beginning of June that same year. They knew the posting was coming just didn't know when, and the only way my mother would be allowed to go with him is if they were married. So they wanted to get it done before he got the orders.

We had been engaged for over a year, so we had time to prepare some things, but the 3 weeks of officially knowing "when" - was hectic to say the least. Never dealt with a priest before, never planned anything before. . . heck, I was 19, and winging it. lol You live and learn and I learned fast. lol
