    Hartford CT area?

    My wife's boyfriend is in Hartford, so it's not impossible I'd end up there... we're talking about me driving her up there one of these days so I can go hiking and just explore.

    To survive a relationship

    one of my good friends swears by meditation, but it doesn't work for me. About the only way I've found to turn my brain off is to go running, but that's not always available - like when feeling anxious and panicky and I am stuck at work for another six hours.... Need to figure that one out...

    It's good. I generally recommend watering it down closer to 80 proof, only in that 110+ can be dangerous~ and the water opens up the flavor a lot.

    Maryland Man Looking for Friends

    It has been called to my attention that some things change in 9 years, and I should probably reflect that... in addition to just showing that I have a history and the ability to not lose a password, lol. Let's see... I hope that OKC link is dead, but I will still happily provide pictures to...

    Northern Virginia Man Seeking Girlfriend

    Yeah... I guess a couple things have changed in the last 9 years... I shouldn't have been quite so lazy. I'll put a few more details on the other thread though, since I mostly just wanted to show the history here, but not confuse into thinking it's an active thread. So... more info here...

    Maryland Man Looking for Friends

    I've been here for a while, on and off. I'm still the same person found here: https://polyamory.com/threads/northern-virginia-man-seeking-girlfriend.29746/#post-175352 but I've since moved to NJ and to Maryland for work. I'm in Columbia MD now, and am looking for friends and more!

    What you listening to Now :

    My daughter showed me this song the other day. I am easily amused, but I thought it was both wonderful and painful.

    Yup, we're definitely learning. Years of practice and fights and learning how to communicate... And yes, the pandemic has been something entirely else. We just reopened our game night for the first time since March of 2020. Whole new crowd since we moved, but it's been good. (: Favorite...

    Wow, it's been about a year since I posted this... and here I am sort of back again. In the year I've been gone, I attempted the "this is just for fun" relationship (which did not work out... it was interesting to try, but... I need more connection) and I've experienced "compersion" with my...

    What online games are you into?

    I appreciate the offers, but I'm not really that interested in chess. @CmMrsn No worries. I was attempting to tease, but apparently did a poor job of it.

    What online games are you into?

    I played WoW for a *looong* time, I looked at going back, but I just can't get into it. My kids love Among Us, but I haven't tried it yet - my "social deduction" skills generally involve yelling that everyone else is the traitor for no particular reason. I definitely understand your...

    What online games are you into?

    What is it with you people and chess.com? I don't know how to chess. I've tried to play. I know vaguely what the pieces do, but I've found that since I don't know the basic strategies, I am pretty much either bound to play against someone else who only vaguely knows what they're doing or get...

    What you listening to Now :

    Had a couple songs come up on my Pandora today that I wanted to share. Scroobius Pip has some great lyrics about relationships... Broken Promise: "Love at first sight always seemed unconsidered, I'd rather love at first fight, then on to double figures" You Will See Me: "The notes you left in...

    What online games are you into?

    I'm looking for new games to play! I used to WoW or FFXIV with my wife, and those were fun ways to find people to talk to. Right now I'm playing some Fortnite and AFK Arena, but neither seem to be conducive to talking to people... My wife and her boyfriend are big into an alliance on State of...

    Your opinions on trying to get to know a married man

    This reminds me of a few conversations I've had.... once a co-worker asked me why I didn't wear a wedding ring, and gave me a perfect lead like "you *are* monogamous, right?" and I responded with "well...." and we had a brief conversation about it. She didn't ask very many questions. Another...

    I'm not entirely sure why you're sorry. That seems perfectly reasonable to me, lol. We've got something like 160 board games, so lots to choose from. Too many for me to figure out a favourite, but... Splendor, Merchants and Marauders, and Red Dragon Inn are probably near the top of the list...

    Thanks! I figured the Official Greeter would know a thing or two. (= I love Russian Blues - they're one of the few breeds I am occasionally not allergic to.

    I'll have to check it out. It certainly doesn't hurt to have more information. (= For the moment, my wife's got an online boyfriend she's interested in meeting (probably after the holidays) and I'm just looking for friends (I'm sure that will change when the opportunity presents itself... I...

    Now *that* is a good combination. (= Before the plague times, we ran a game group and did board games and drinks with friends pretty much every Friday. Looking forward to getting back to that someday. For now we have a few select friends we play with, and there's always whiskey. (= I keep...

    Your opinions on trying to get to know a married man

    As a married man who has dated married women... Be honest. A friendship is great, anything more can be icing on the cake if it's based on realistic and honest expectations. Also... run away if he starts talking badly about his wife or his relationship.... If he can't be honest with her, he...
