We women need to think better of ourselves

We women need to think better of ourselves

Spoke to my friend last night about the perils of online dating apps.

I won’t lie, Ive been on them years and still believe they’re like a sweet shop for people to try out and never make any decent commitments on.

When you have been around the continent like me then you become quite difficult to date. I’m the un-dateable!! I’m the cynic you read about, the one who gives it a go then says meh why bother. They’re all the same.

7/10 men who approach me now on dating apps are simply scammers. Now I’m not suggesting this is everyone, but people who are approaching my age group from the 40 year old upwards, usually are not really honest or have a good intention, especially since COVID hit. There will be the odd ones who decent so I’m not tarring all with the same brush, but this is my experience.

I spoke to a few guys I know who spend lots of time dating women on apps and they say the one thing about women over 40 is the assumption that we all must be desperate to date and will basically be an easy catch. So for the younger guys this is a fun game and for the love scammers, apparently makes women easy pickings.

Technically I tend to agree with that as I will be approached by either young guys seeking a “good time” or men who refer to me as one true love and all those generic terms scammers use to make you think you feel special. Me? Hell no I know from the first conversation if I want to speak to someone. Usually 9/10 its no.

So my friend and I were chatting last night and I updated her on my lack of dating interests. One was but then he suddenly disappeared and then she came in with her ones.

A 24 and 18 year old want to “do her”.

My friend is 60. Like what do men and young men think women are? “Do her” Really? What happened to the old fashioned woo you then bed you mentality. I remember that from when I was younger and at least you got dinner and a chance to decide if you liked someone before you moved to the base.

But folks this is what a lot of young guys are seeing as normal. We need to change this mindset Its not ok. They need to learn the art of effort.

Young women are more and more having to deal with this nonsense because older women often think this is all they deserve and can get. We older women need to say Beggar off more often and not feel this is what we deserve or the last of what we can have. It is not. Cheeky gits!!!

Women can go into old age and still be amazing.

Be like me. Keep the Knickers on and wait for the right one. At least my goodness get a few dates, a nice meal and some flowers for the effort of sharing your lady garden for fertilisation with some unknown dude.

I’ve learnt over the years that there is a art to dating, its like a little game. Where you both flirt and play that cat and mouse game, either the woman or the male. There is no rule to who is the cat. But you make effort and you learn that whilst getting to know someone, you may actually appreciate and like them.

Casual sex is overrated and frankly the best sex is the one you have yourself or the one you have with a partner who has learnt to know you and appreciate and respect you.

If in doubt, Anne Summers is your get go ladies.

Now I seriously look dateable in this outfit don’t you think?

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo

Cinco de Mayo is a celebration of Mexican heritage. It commemorates the date of the Mexican army’s victory over France at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. It is also known as Battle of Puebla Day.

It’s a day of celebration and in honour I managed to consult Mr Google to understand what it is.

I have only discovered this day via Second Life as it isn’t something celebrated here in the U.K. or Australia when I was growing up.

I thought it remiss of me to blog a top for the occasion if I didn’t at least know what the occasion was about.

Job done. I’m off to eat my brekky now.

Happy Cinco de Maya day.

I’ve been to visit this destination and attempted a line in french in the video. Don’t expect anything grand as I’m useless.

I cannot speak french at all but really felt this video warranted me having a go.

I’m having a quick review of the Kalhene Anya Bakes on Mesh avatar.

When I say quick, you better believe there’s no waffling on my part.

To be honest, this avatar is so easy to use that all that faffing we do with heads and bodies seems so complicated in comparison. However for ease of those who perhaps don’t know I’ve included one of my first videos for Kalhene here in order to reference.

There are things I have been asked to review and I never profess to be an expert.

Like anyone else out there, often I am bumbling my way along the mesh corridors of Second Life, looking for the book “Mesh for Dummies”.

Sadly I still have not found it. When I have and I feel informed enough, perhaps I’ll take the reviewers plunge.

In the meantime you can make go with my wee efforts now and then and give them a bit of oooo aaa if you can do that I don’t feel so daft.

Enjoy….

Squatters rights

Squatters rights

Harriet moves from place to place after Isabelle moved her out due to COVID.

Harriet has found out from Jonathon about the squatters rights, to squat.

Harriet being the naive person she is, sees a post on Facebook by the talented Sienna Foxdale about a rez build.

Sienna has decorated a sky home throughout and is offering this as a service to purchase. Harriet quite fancies that rather lush looking sky home and makes a run for it, sneaking in and making herself at home.

Sienna Foxdale is completely unaware till she sees the video!

Will Sienna call the Squatters police or will she smile knowing that Harriet will have to leave anyhow as she forgot to bring L’Oréal the fat cat.

If you are interested in this build message Sienna Foxdale inworld. It’s $5 k to Rez for you and if you are like me useless in inside decor then it’s a brilliant idea.

What you make of it

What you make of it

If only when I slipped on a bikini this stared back at me through the mirror. If only!

But no sadly it really does not.

I knew I’d move south as I got older. I just didn’t think my boobs would get there first!

Seriously the race was competitive and they won with a lead.

Do you ever look at your avatar and stare at him or her lovingly and just think wow?

I do most days. Most days I sit back and think how wonderful it is to pretend that I am her and she is me.

Reminds me back when I used to play with my dollies when I was younger, the difference is changing clothes is a lot easier than over the plastic body parts.

I love Second Life. It’s full of weird and wonderful people . Me being one of them.

None of us are RL twins of our avatars. But who cares. Our world is magical and we are are as we choose to be.

Last week I was a Chimpanzee and a Dinosaur.

Today I’m a sassy babe laying in my bikini and pretending I’m on holiday.

Actually I am on holiday in reality, I’m just not “on holiday”. Corona prevents that, but I plan to make the best of it and still have a good time.

Because after all. Time is what you make of it.

The Chimpanzee just did it for me!

Despite my classy look there was me jumping up and down like a banshee wetting myself with excitement when the chimp came out the box.

But then when the second one came out, my shrieks could be heard right across the meta verse.

You see for the past few years in Sansar I’m known as “her with the monkey”.

It became a special signature to me and I’ve always wanted to replicate it in second life but never met the perfect monkey. Till now.

So I may look a bit posh nosh but believe me I’m all down with the animals enjoying their wonderful animations.

So the chimpanzee is part of the HullabaZoo event. You really want to go. If you are like me and love all things furrie and cute. There’s so much more I’m going to show you over the coming weeks from both HullabaZoo and EQUAL10.

Now the video….

Why do cats purr?

Why do cats purr?

Good question.

When you know the answer let me know.

My two have been purring either side of me whilst I was working today. That may invoke a oooo “isn’t that adorable” response.

But, let me tell you. The two of them at the same time, is like a jackhammer after a while.

That’s all I have to say . No really.

Goodnight.

I wrote a story : it was a cold rainy night. Nothing was heard but the sounds of the rain beating on the tin roof.

The princess was eaten by dingos.

The End!
