There is a new website in town geared towards the over ‘40 something’ who are single and would like to hook up casually. Check this out, perhaps it’s just the thing you have been looking for.
There is a very old Quaker saying ..."I expect to pass through this world but once. If, therefore, there be any kindness I can show to any fellow-being, let me not defer or neglect it, for I will not pass this way again."
Two years ago...almost to this day...a woman moved with her big yellow Lab to Blue Mountain. She could have moved anywhere...she had lived all over the world from the Arctic to Hong Kong...but the beauty and wide array of activities drew her to the Mountain.
She knew no one except her real estate agent. Then days after her arrival, her Lab "Buddyboy"-her 13 year companion, passed away.
Loneliness took up house in her heart.
Then through a buddy in Toronto, she was introduced to a friend of a friend whom she meet for coffee at the Village. She then offered to help The Collingwood Humane Society by taking in stray dogs and finding them homes.
Her buddy from Toronto started coming up and night after night (okay...maybe one night a weekend) they would venture over to the Mountain with high hopes and great expectations ...perhaps...just maybe...they would meet some ONE...maybe start a RELATIONSHIP.
And many fun nights occurred...but nothing of any depth or lasting quality.
You see...they were over 40...and their life stories were longer...and therefore they needed more time to tell them...and with the loud music, the TV's, the crowds...there were just too many distractions.
"It seems as if everyone is searching for a new form of relationship that is more satisfying and nourishing than what they are used to. We don't even have words to completely describe this relationship. We can try by describing what it is not: it is not co-dependent anymore...
When you connect with another person at a deep level, you start a new dance together that has many moves in it that flow from one to another. When two people learn to become separate, whole, autonomous people, you no longer need to protect yourselves from each other. You are free to be yourself. You realize that you are loved for who you really are, not some false image you tried to create.
Partners in this kind of relationship dance can weave in and out of deep connection, are not always intimate with each other , and can fight and argue with each other. What makes that possible is committment and consciousness. For that reason, we prefer to call this form of relationship a conscious, committed, cooperative relationship." (Barry and Janae Weinhold)
With this in mind, Bren set up "Single At The Mountain". Her intention is to serve a niche in the area no one else does...to provide an opportunity to casually meet people...to get out there and do things together in the beauty of nature.
So...who knows where things will lead? One thing for sure...when you add the element of kindness with having fun...magic is sure to follow.
