" I am looking for a romantic man wqho will feel the same for me, my child, and my dog"

Really?

Better steer away from now on. Yikes.

When you've been blown off by the rest, settle for second best

Good heavens. I just saw another horrifying personal ad where that features a prim conservative looking lady folding her hands like the Mona Lisa, with her 15 year old buxom daughter in the foreground, bending forward to give the camera a view down her shirt. I'd call child protection authorities but I'm afraid they'd ask me why I was looking at the picture ... honest I was looking for a woman my own AGE to go dancing with.

I never wanted to grow into one of those middle aged guys that belluaches about how the world has gone insane ...

I found this one to be pretty funny.

This isn't exactly a personal ad...

Oh, goodness, it's not like that here at all! You just have to steer clear of personal adds, and go instead to evening classes, meetup events, interest groups, etc. If you go by personal ads it will be a disaster.

I met my wife in NYC only 9 months after moving from Cali. I was making $30k in customer service and she was a poet/business analyst/model of stunning gorgeousness. Still is.

You don't need megabucks to find love here, just resourcefulness. Then again, I am, objectively speaking, ridiculously lucky. [Smile]

My fear would be I'd lose my humanity talking and associating with people that think and speak lie both the man and the woman did ... guess I've developed a Yankee prejudice from working for one.

It's a prank, Pete. There may be a few humans in NYC who speak like that, but in my 14 years here I've never met one.

My bad luck then ... and some folks I know here that moved away from their families that thought that way.

I'm not saying they don't exist...just that they don't define the city culture at all. Personalities here run the full gamut of humanity. [Smile]

You're right. Actually with an excellent transit system, and Central Park, NYC might be a fun place for me. Prejudices and stereotypes are often unfair. I'm a little startled to hear that you could even live there on $30,000, let alone find love there. Guess the world isn't exactly what I've been told.

I started out in Jersey City, just across the Hudson -- a 20 min commute by bus to my job in Midtown. I had roommates, that's how it's done. Russians, in my case. After I met my future wife, we lived together in a railroad apartment in Brooklyn. If you're sharing rent, you can live in NYC on a modest income. It's tight, but not impossible. Adjust your expectations for living space, is all. I was and am happy.

For what it's worth, there is a prominent LDS temple in Lincoln Center.

I think you'd like it here, Pete. People come from all over, and there is no better place for falling in love. Walking with a date in Central Park in June is heaven on earth, and you can picnic and enjoy free music.

The main catch -- we have too many lawyers for the economy to support. [Frown] I've been working since passing the bar but many haven't, and for many it's one doc review after the next. That may change though with an economic uptick.

I love the city. I couldn't really live there again (and arguably never really properly lived there at all) - it's too much for me, it's like drinking from a firehose all the time. But I do love to visit, and I've never understood the bad rap it gets in some circles. I know lots of people who have lived in NYC on a modest income and found lots of joy and love.
