Well...the poor economy has finally hit me...10% cut in my wages.  I fought it, but it was company wide.  I did get a concession though which will allow me to take a 2 week vacation.

The girl at the bread shop turned out to be just weird.  I kept asking her to do things with me from karting or tennis and she kept saying yes, but never going.  On the otherhand I finally found a girl that is vegetarian (still eats eggs and dairy, but used to be vegan and I believe wants to be vegan and will become vegan with m help).  She rescues all creatures even insects from bad situations like I do.  She likes Hard Rock and even plays electric guitar like I do.  She likes science fiction including Harry Potter like I do.  She's an absolute perfect match.  All except that she lives in Rochester NY and I live in Sacramento CA.

I am planning on flying out to meet her, or perhaps flying her out to CA to meet me.  It seems very sudden and perhaps rash to some people, but I believe I will ask her to move in with me if our in-person contact results in warm fuzzy feelings.  I thought about the times I've simply had roommates and realized that when it's finding roommates I'm willing to just go by first impressions.  Obviously, I know that a live-in girlfriend is much more serious than just a roommate, but the same risk is involved regarding their character...any of my roommates could have totally screwed me over, but they didn't.  I think I am a very good judge of character even after just a few minutes of conversation.  I think she's equal to my own or perhaps even more if that's possible.

This is a huge step for me.  I'm 51 and never had a girlfriend before (and no other form of sexual relationship either).  So, this is something that will finally make me happy.

Hope you don't mind...
I was just checking you out, since our little exchange in the veganism community.

I hope it works out with the new girl. It is so hard to find someone that is right for you. I was lucky enough to finally do so myself, a few years ago. I met a lot of people who did not think my veganism and animal rights perspective were major parts of my identity and that they could continue to eat meat regardless of what I did. So I had to get more strict about the kind of people I went out with. Even then, I met many who claimed to eat meat sparingly or to be working toward vegetarianism. Ultimately, I found out these people were posers, apparently hoping I would overlook the fact that they were in no way working toward a compassionate diet. Then I was accused of being judgmental and pushy, even without doing anything. Finally I met a guy who REALLY was moving toward vegetarianism. All he needed was a a little help with resources and such and now he is vegan!

Now, if it doesn't work out for you, I have a beautiful friend in Columbus, Ohio who is 42, vegan, animal rights activist, and loves classic rock and big strong guys...

Re: Hope you don't mind...
I don't mind at all...thanks for the note. I actually have not talked to that girl in Rochester for two weeks...she hasn't returned my last 4 calls, and her email a week ago, which she said was being sent from "downtown", said that she is having electrical problems and her Magic Jack phone system doesn't work because she can't run her computer and her cell phone battery is dead. But yet the email was sent from the same IP address domain which usually means that it's from the same computer using dynamic IP addressing. And, if it was me having problems I would have borrowed someone's phone and called her...heck I could have caught a flight out and helped her out if she would let me, but without good communication I don't know where to meet her.

But, it looks like she no longer wishes to communicate or is unable or unwilling. So, it certainly would not hurt to communicate with your friend. She can email me at Rockn-Roll@sbcGlobal.net or call me at (916) 717-8164.

Re: Hope you don't mind...
I'll pass it along to her. She is a little shy.

Are you on Facebook?

Well, that is where everyone is these days. Except for you and I, apparently! Anyway, I asked because my friend is on there and I was thinking you could look her up if you had an account. You have to be signed up in order to view other people's profiles and such.
