"Let me explain how out of my comfort zone I am right now. The last time I was actually single, Seinfeld and Friends were both on television. I didn’t have 1 kid let alone 4 of them…let alone raise them alone…let alone face the fact that they may not be very happy I’m dating at all. Add to this the myriad of worries I have…what happens when you go out, do you kiss her goodnight? I haven’t kissed anyone in so long…what if I’m terrible at this? What if they want to have sex?! That means more kissing again! What if they are freaked out by the fact that I have so many kids?! Dear God I hadn’t thought about sex.  What if they don’t like that I have grey hair? OH MY GOD WHAT IF THEY WANT TO HAVE SEX?!

DEAR GOD WHAT IF THEY ACTUALLY SAY YES TO A DATE?!"

OMG I LOVE David Manoucheri​ for being so transparent.

Read the rest of his piece and his take on online dating.. 
Do you agree?

Nearly a decade ago, I sat on the set of the CBS Early Show and said goodbye. I had no idea what the future would hold but I did know I had plans. Big, BIG plans. I'm thrilled to say looking back on this interview.. how many of them have come true or are in the works.. 

No shortcuts.. just a decade of busting my a**.

" Standing firm in her position and conviction, Cheryl actually INVITED haters to spar and when they did, she was shocked by it. You simple cannot say something that incendiary in a public place (remember FB and the interview she gave were public forums) and not expect a significant amount of blowback, which is exactly what happened."

Many, many lessons here

 The poster is entitled to her opinion and I absolutely think it is wrong to use biology and hormonal chemistry to determine what job a person can do is akin to not paying women on an equitable pay scale or discrimination based on gender or sexual orientation. She is wrong and I hope she does not have daughters.

"Curry answered the questions, his daughter got some quality time and in a world of super serious stuff, we got a peek at something so pure and wonderful.. a dad making sure his kid knew that she was an important part of his life.

What do you think? Do you think Curry should have had his daughter at the podium? Are the sports writers justified or do they need a coffee enema?"

"I want all my children to feel safe, but especially this one child. A few years ago when we traveled from Ethiopia back to the states he was scared to death that we were going to kill him. Of course, we didn’t know that the older boys in the orphanage had told him that when you leave with the foreigners they take you home and kill you…but that is another post.

Often I’ve wrestled with finding a balance of sheltering and helping my children process the hard realities of this world. In an idyllic way…I want my kids to enjoy a carefree childhood but as they grow it must be balanced with what is going on in our world today.

So, how do we bring these things up? How can we teach compassion and empathy when the world is scary and filled with so much hate?"

This person proceeded to make my life a living hell. You know people like this; they thrive on chaos and are always in middle of it, stirring the pot.

At one point he used a pejorative used to describe African Americans. The TV station I worked for at the time could not let it go un-punished but instead of suspending him, they sent he and I to a work mediator.

Yeah I know.

I had to go to HIS punishment. Let that sink in for a moment.

"I can move on, go on dates, have sex, fall in love, hell even get married in the future, who knows? That doesn’t ever mean I will forget the amazing force of nature I shared half a lifetime with.

The amazing David Manoucheri​ is marking a very somber anniversary this week. Four years ago his wife died suddenly, leaving him to raise 4 kids on his own. He has saved his journey with GEM readers the last 3 or so years and we are enriched because of it. Dave: Thank you. We are with you and the kids as you remember the woman who left an indelible mark on so many lives.
