Why I'm on here
Why I'm on here
There is of course an obvious answer, but thats not the one I'm going to talk about. As much as I hate to admit it I'm a victim of Katrina. I find myself in Austin as a direct result of Katrina. The first floor of my home was flooded. The second floor is perfectly habitable if only it had gas and electricity. The house is old and as it turns out needs to be completely rewired and re-plumbed in order to pass inspection. So its time to bite the bullet and renovate the entire house. I have no idea how long this will take. Its possible that I could be back home by the end of March but its most likely going to be a bit longer. I'm hoping to be back in New Orleans by August. What's really strange about all of this is that I was planning to visit Austin this December to investigate moving here. Now, while staying here is a possibility its a little bit more remote. Not because I don't like it here, but I just have to make the effort to save a city I really love. I am also pretty sure that I will be spending a lot of time here in the future. If things go well, I will try to have an office here as well as one in New Orleans
So now you know why I'm in Austin. Now, why am I on AdultFriendFinder.com? I guess the real answer is impatience and a bit of laziness. When you spend the better part of 47 years in a place you can't help but know some people and know where to meet people with similar interest. You could say that I patiently spent 47 years building a circle of friends. Some of these friends are special, both in terms of closeness and in terms of sex. A few of these special friends go back to high school. A few I've only known for a few months. Its an ongoing process. The process is continuing in Austin. I'm getting out and meeting people. I'm sure some will become special friends. It just takes time. I'm splitting my time between Austin and New Orleans as I try to rebuild. This slows things down a bit as well. I'm usually a very patient person, but I want to have a similar life here as I had in New Orleans. I miss getting together with friends several times a week. Sure I enjoy an evening at home, but I need to be with people too. I'm very happy in my own skin. I just need some stimulation to keep me from being bored.
So here I am on AdultFriendFinder. I really don't expect to much. I know the odds of a single guy actually meeting a woman or couple here are pretty slim, but I'm making an honest effort. I've exchanged a few e-mails with a few people. Even got a dinner invitation which I wish I would have gotten ten minutes earlier. Hopefully, I'll get the opportunity to meet one or two of them. They seem like really good people. I would love to count them among my special friends. We'll see what happens and I'll let you guys know how it goes.
