Why “Grandpa” is a G@G User

Yes, I am 63 years old and I am old enough to be the grandfather to most users on this site. I have been a user on G@G since April 10, 2015. Why am I here giving dating advice to young people who could be my grandchildren? What do I know about what happens in relationships in your generation?...

Living Together. . . Will It Work For You?

After dating for six months and spending every weekend together, my girlfriend and I decided that we wanted to live together. I didn't KNOW that we would be happy together the rest of our lives but no one ever knows with any real certainty when they have found The One. We both thought that we...

Has dating changed THAT much in the past 50 years?

Fifty years ago was 1968. Of course, some things in 1968 were vastly different. In 1968: We did not have cell phones, most of us did not have color TVs, cars were bigger and most families only had one car, Lyndon B. Johnson was the president, we did not have computers or any digital...

Once a Cheater, Always a Cheater!

I have had a spouse cheat on me, after 1½ years of marriage . . . with another female . . . and I unknowingly paid for the sleeper berth in which it happened. I’ve never cheated on anyone. Never. Not once. If I said “let’s date exclusively,” that’s what I delivered. I understand what...

It Was a Heavenly Christmas!

In the fall of 1979, I was 24 years old. Socially, I was a late bloomer. I had dated some and I had experienced a few sexual relationships but I had never had a serious long term girlfriend. By November of 1979, that had changed. Pat was a petite, cute, attentive lady who had gotten divorced...

Twenty-One Tips For Successful Online Dating

I am 62 years old. I have used online dating sites three times in my life: 2007-2008, 2015, and 2017. I am not looking for hookups, FWB’s, casual sex, ONS's, etc. I want to find a woman for a long term relationship 1. who I will eventually love, 2. who arouses my desires, 3. whom I trust, and 4....

Two Days Ago, I Closed A Chapter In My Life

This is a very lengthy myTake. If you don’t have the time to finish reading it, don’t start. I know it’s long so don’t leave a comment that complains about the length. I have written this because writing is cathartic for me and perhaps someone will read this and learn something that helps them...

A Good Long Term Relationship Requires. . . Part Two

This is another update of a myTake that I posted perhaps a year ago. For some reason, the original version of this myTake did not stir any interest among users and I had only one reply posted. I don’t understand, because the topic should be extremely important for anyone who ultimately wants to...

A Good Long Term Relationship Requires...

Some users on this site don't want a LTR and they are quite vocal about their intentions. I understand that not everyone sees a LTR or marriage as a desirable goal. Some people would not be comfortable “tied down” to one partner and some people just aren’t suited for monogamy. Some users deny...

My Experience Being Ghosted: Epilogue Part 2

(My ghost, "Casper" a/k/a Miss Linda. This is not a picture of Miss Linda but it is someone who looks very much like her.) I previously posted a myTake about a lady who ghosted me two years ago. https://www.girlsaskguys.com/dating/a48176-my-experience-being-ghosted-epilogue I met her once and...

My Experience Being Ghosted: Epilogue

(This is NOT an actual photo of the woman who is the subject of this myTake. I would not compromise her privacy by posting her picture without her permission. This is simply a photo that I found browsing and it looks remarkably like her.) A few months ago, I posted a poll asking about your...

What To Do When Your Parents Don’t Like Your New Love Interest

I recently posted an answer to the question "What would you do if your parents did not accept your partner?" Several users suggested that I develop my answer into a myTake on this subject. I’m not too old to listen to others, so . . . @Cavewoman and @YourFutureEx, this is for you. Sometimes,...

Don't Do It! Don't Do It! . . . Damn, You Did It!

This is another rewrite of an earlier myTake about the folly of attempting to reconcile failed relationships. This is NOT directed at couples who break up for reasons that do not relate to the quality of the relationship, like you dated for three years and then her family moved to another...

What? Your Relationship Isn't 50/50?

Have you complained to your friends that your relationship seems to be one-sided and you usually give more than you take? There are probably 3 billion people on this planet in relationships and probably all 3 billion have had that complaint at some time. My last girlfriend bought a house and...

Let's Be Practical: How To End A Relationship And Minimize The Stress!

I present here another rewrite of one of my earlier myTakes. Some breakups occur suddenly. You make a surprise visit to his apartment and find him in bed with the girl who you thought was your best friend. You scream and tell him, "Return to Hell, demon!" You pull out a gun and threaten to...

Breaking up: you may want to die. . . but you won't, so do yourself a favor and deal with it!

This is the sixth rewrite of a myTake from a few years ago. I have a fresh perspective on this particular subject because I have been contemplating breaking up with my current girlfriend. I know it is the right thing to do but my heart simply does not want to let go of her. “I love her”...
