I do think we all owe Ponte some free advice in his temporary period of loneliness.I do understand your preference of Boston to San Diego as I had a PhD Scientist friend that moved to SD from Boston.After a year he had enough said: "San Diego is an intellectual desert surrounded by a zoo." Now if I were in your position I would avoid the red-head as you know she is jealous and if you are still married to LL could testify that LL had grounds to leave such as calling you a sex maniac. If interested I'll give you my top choices in the world [mostly Asia] for finding female companionship w/o burden of marriage. Fly Before Buy. Check 6
Ponte- Here is a good test for the red-head: Fly to Boston then stay at historic Colonial Inn in Concord,MA. Check into room 24 and you may meet the ghost about 0300,church bells will chime and watch things move in room.If she is not affectionate after that forget her. Check 6
My advice to Ponte is:
Lose the beard.
Don't refer to women as c__ts. That is a REALLY bad word.
Join a gym.
Take a vacation at a beach. Most men hate hanging out on the beach so you won't have any competition.
If you are fat, lose weight. Women are as judgemental as men in that regard.
LH-Agree on all counts.I met my wife on beach at Waikiki and it gives you a good body pre- view.Most interesting beach I ever been to is near Sydney called Manly and Aussie topless Sheilas are terrific. As for beard if he does not have a strong chin feature it may be Ok.He should check out Lajolla Beach & Tennis Club for desparate housewives,divorcees & rich young widows.
Spec- San Antonio,Phoenix,Lake Havasu,Fresno & Nashville not for Ponte.My 1st choice in USA would be a high rise in SFO with view of Golden Gate.San Francisco has been called "Boston on the Pacific", Ponte would love it!
Ponte should stay away from Lake Havasu!
The only thing it has going is a nice winter climate and its proximity to Vegas. It is boring as hell and the only reason I have anything to do with it is because I inherited it from my Dad. (One of original Civil Eng on the project).
Since I am no gambler and the desert is boring I am almost never there. I am holding on to it for our children & have had several inq. annually in the last 3 years from law firms rep. large developers, etc.
Ponte should go to New England!
I'm here, amused, and completely on your side on this one.
I was the very first to post a msg to you following your disclosure of marital discord. You may have just overlooked it.
PS - nice of you to acknowledge our tete-a-tete's
