I thought I would be that way, and I'm sure I will again. I didn't think I'd even be dating again this soon but it's kind of a nice distraction, as long as it doesn't get too complicated. Dating without being serious about it is just kinda ... fun.
I...feel I've missed a bit here. Not surprising considering I do not frequent this board as much as I used to. Am I to understand that you are no longer married?
In the process of getting a divorce. Won't be finalized till this summer at the earliest.
I'm sorry to hear that. I hope things work out for you, and that the process is as smooth as possible. The best of luck to you.

Surprisingly, my knees don't melt at a Scottish accent. English, yes, Irish, yes, Scottish? Nope.

Wait! One exception to that rule: Have I already mentioned my willingness to have sex with Ewan McGregor? If not, then I have just now.
Certainly a good choice!

Also, Hugh Jackman.

I guess I've never really seen the point in dating without being serious about it.
It's a social activity. Companionship, conversation, possibly making out or sex, or even chess. It's fun and rewarding.

This is the first I've heard of this. I'm very sorry. I hope everything works out for the best for you and that you find happiness.

Have you seen The Long Way Round? If not then I highly recommend it, I think it is one of the best travel shows ever made, and Ewan McGregor is ace in it. I'm not really a fan of any of his films except Shallow Grave & Big Fish, but he just comes off as a really affable guy.

Careful not to confuse it with its sequel, The Long Way Down though, which is still good, but just not as good as the first one.

Re: Dating Range?

Just one question, what is this think called dating?

I don't think many of us can help whom we are attracted to, so for some age is an irrelvance, but maybe 10 years at a push.

Most people I know (gay or female) would choose Sean Connery as their exception.

Y'all can have Sean Connery. I'll take Patrick Stewart, please. His voice (and other parts).

And Allan Rickman's voice.

If this is segueing into a discussion of sexy voices, I offer Viggo Mortensen *happy sigh*

I don't have an exception. But if I did, it it wouldn't be Sean Connery, not after Highlander II.

Precisely. Although admittedly, I have seen it about 20 times.

I had to really make certain it was rubbish.

Well I definitely can't go younger than 5 years as I'm 23 and would be heading into iffy territory.

Well if we're going to talk sexy voice, can't leave out the wimmins. I vote for Sophia Bush or Tara Reid.

I want those voices on the bodies of Mila Kunis or Natalie Portman.

I'd really like to see the correlation of data by gender. I'll bet most who selected older ranges are women and those who selected younger are men.

I only sorta like Sean Connery old. I think he was quite unattractive young. Definitely not on any bucket lists of mine.

Really?

Scuttlebutt is the only reason he was chosen for Bond over the other (more well know) actors is because the producers all asked their wives, and they all said he was the sexiest of the bunch.
