This thread is more about romance and less about sex.
Since this is about 'mos please do not include the following subjects:
it was love at FIRST sight!
I always LOVE the earrings and caftan dude's stuff when he posts, its makes me laugh.
r3 really? I always found him lame.
My hubby was a salesman, traveled one week in four. The first two months we lived together he was a bit laggard in his sales duties, and finally had to go out to earn his bread (I was unemployed at the time). He called me at 2 a.m. to tell me to hurry to the airport, he bought me a ticket because he couldn't stand to spend one night without me. So I went. Unfortunately, by the time I got there he regretted the action and expense. But it was a romantic fantasy.
My most romantic experience was my career in the theater.
"Unfortunately, by the time I got there he regretted the action and expense."
Why did he regret it?
Clearly, R7, you have never seen R5.
There's a whole lot (I'm 59 and never give up)... but I'll tell you one that probably trumps the others.
Met Martin (an artist) in Ft Lauderdale FL, in early winter of '77. In those days the Marlin Beach Hotel and the beach in front was hot for gay men. After a week of so in Lauderdale he asked me to return up the coast (A1A!) to Cocoa Beach where he lived. We drove up one evening stopping in Melbourne where we had a big seafood feast. We got to his appartment in a small complex (very bohemian vibe) across A1A from the beach. He had a king size water bed (of course) and his art all over the place in his emaculate appartment as well as lots of what I will call Florida rustic furniture he built. We probably had a couple shots of Southern Comfort and took to the waterbed with the music from Last Tango in Paris playing (softly of course) on the stereo. I can remember that night, the smell, the sounds (waves on the beach) like it was last night. Martin was like a big blond stallion. Massive shoulders, arms, and chest from surfing every day (on those old big boards), blond and tan from the sun- and rather well known in FLA (for his art), living day to day on odd jobs, mostly rock concert production crews. Martin as a consumate artist- poetry, oils, water colors, collages; his style was sort of surreal, great detailed oils of things are not real.
I stayed just short of a year, played lots of tennis and worked (with Martin) for every major rock act passing though FLA as stage crew (Fleetwood Mac, Springstein, Earth Wind and Fire, Pink Floyd, Led Zeplin, the Eagles, etc.) He would often work one of the big spot lights and I would stadle it like a horse. Sometimes I was backstage sort or working like a gofer for the musicians. God did we have fun.
Those were magical times (and there was some drama), but we remained very close after I left. He passed away in the early 90s of HIV as did his lover at the time. I did what I could to help him out- mostly buying his art which of course I and a number of my friends treasure to this day.
R9, the word "emaculate" does exist; it's apparently a transitive verb, meaning to clear of spots, stains or imperfections. But since you used it as an adjective, I'm reasonably sure that you meant "immaculate."
Yes I know and there are a number of other typos and misspells in my post as well- always are since I rarely proof them. So sorry.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
