I have been online dating for about two months and it’s been so-so thus far. I’m 5’3″ and an hourglass-ish size 10, so while I’m not obese, I’m definitely not “athletic and toned.” I chose pictures that I think accurately show this.
Anyway, at first I listed myself as “A few pounds extra” thinking it was an honest description.
When they folded, it was returned to me to do as I wish.
And then I suddenly found myself afraid to publish it so it's been in a folder for a few months.
When your Mom starts dating other guys or your Dad starts dating other women, it’s hard to get past the initial “ick” factor” let alone learn to cope with the whole dating thing.
That’s why so many kids try to keep their parents from dating at all.

I’m wondering if this is why guys will view me a lot, but won’t make contact. There are tons of changes that happen in your life, and you may never really get used to the idea though you will likely adapt to your new life eventually.One thing that makes the process even harder though is when you parents start to date other people.Teenagers in the 1950's are so iconic that, for some, they represent the last generation of innocence before it is "lost" in the sixties.When asked to imagine this lost group, images of bobbysoxers, letterman jackets, malt shops and sock hops come instantly to mind.The guys who have made contact have been people that I probably would not have dated normally, i.e., no steady job or just a little odd.The good news, Nicci, is that all of the answers can be derived from the same exact technique – flipping things over to consider the other person’s point of view.After the second World War, teenagers became much more noticeable in America (Bailey 47).Their presence and existence became readily more apparent because they were granted more freedom than previous generations ever were. They were given a chance to redefine the ways things were done in America.Images like these are so classic, they, for a number of people, are "as American as apple pie." They are produced and perpetuated by the media, through films like .Because of these entertainment forums, these images will continue to be a pop cultural symbol of the 1950's.
