Old Days and Nowadays

My mother bought a few old movies.  I've never really enjoyed old movies before, and never took the time to watch any of them, but she insisted so I gave in.  We just watched "Bell, Book and Candle" with James Stewart, Kim Novac and Jack Lemmon.  OK, I admit it, I enjoyed it.  Actors of old are a little dramatic, but it works.

But what really struck me was how romance was so different.  I get so sick of watching movies where two people meet and they are in bed in 5 minutes, then it doesn't work out and they meet another, and then more sex in 5 minutes.  It bugs me.  I guess I don't belong in this era, huh?  Everyone I know has given in to the current times, but seriously, if I slept with every guy I dated...well...GOOD GOD, GROSS!  But being old fashioned gets you nowhere, let me tell you.  I guess that is why I'm flying solo.  Sex is great, don't get me wrong, but how it is thrown around so carelessly now just makes me ill.  I can't tell you how many times I've met a guy and they would ask me how big my boobs are or how I felt about anal sex on the first frigging phone call.  I mean, COME ON.  Call me nutty, but I just hung up.  But it's not just guys - if you won't do it, be assured there is a woman not 20 feet from you who will.  I can't, or should I say won't, compete with that.

In the last two years of dating, I've met only one man who was sincerely respectful.  Joe.  I wish it would of worked out because he really was quite chivalrous, and I have to tell you that his behavior was more of a turn-on to me than anything else.  Oh well.  I'm off to watch another sappy old movie, 'The Ghost and Mrs. Muir'.  LOL
