Setting out in search of a mate, it was her intent to be proliferate and increase her species.

Big responsibility for a little lizard!

LOL!!!!

Years ago my wife and her girl friends took under their wings a male coworker who not only suffered through a very bad divorce but his first serious relationship after the marriage ended badly as well. I met the guy once back in 1992 and he told me about a time his "sisters" decided to cheer him up by taking out one night to a big outdoor folk music concert.

Figuring they were about to try and set him up with a girlfriend he got all cleaned up and was feeling extra good. Much to his surprise it was a gay and lesbian community concert with the majority of the women attending not interested in guys.

Luckily, things got better a year or so later when he went on vacation to Hawaii and met his current wife.

OMH that's a great story Beach. Glad the trip to Hawaii ended better for the guy.
