Hi Bill, I love the message. You have managed to put across the message in limerick form and I have to give you Kudos for that. I have nothing but praise for those who can write limericks. A limerick that makes total sense. Has to be a fave, my friend. Have a wonderful evening ..... Mike.

I have not had to seek out the dating scene/s because of a long marriage soon to be 60 years, therefore, I don't know exactly what people go through when seeking a new relationship, but I can imagine it would be quite difficult to find one in some of the places that the TV indicates people go today.

Thank you, Connie. I'm still learning. Mine aren't very funny like they should be most of the time. Bill

Excellent advice Bill - both wise and witty. And thanks for reminding me that good poetry doesn't have to be long and wordy. Sometimes short & to the point is the best method of communicating what's in one's heart and head. Cheers, Terry

Thanks for the visit and comment, Terry. Short and long both have their advantages and disadvantages. The poet that uses the appropriate form communicates their thoughts through their poetry in the better way. One form doesn't fit all. :-) A poet friend in Texas, Bill

Reminds me of that old country western song, also like 'a friend is the best deal' - that is the best way to ensure a long happy relationship!
