I'm back in the swing...
« on: January 01, 2008, 02:06:58 PM »

Well, it has been a long time since I have sent anything in with POZ.  Resolution last night, to be more aggressive in what I want in 08.  That is to meet more people, date and hope to find a relationship.  I have been single now for just over 4 years.  I was in a relationship for 11 years till he passed of cancer.  I fullfilled, "till death do us part"  now looking to get the spark going again.  If I don't try, it will not happen on its own. 

I am in NE Tennessee.  I have been POZ officially since 1985, but believe I can go back to 1980.  I am healthy, working and am ready to share my life again. :)

Contact me here or at cmbear9108@charter.net

Happy New Year!

Where is my mind?  I thought the subject line was "back in the sling!"

Best wishes, Carl.

Hi Carl,

Good to hear your back mate. 

I am new to posting here and seen your post looking to meet more people and i would like to do the same.....We may be too far away to do anything physical but i dont mind being a friend/buddy. We call them mates here so good to meet you and look forward to getting to know you.

I got some questions.

Hi CmBear,

Heres hopping that that sparkk will find you soon. I also have dedicde that I am going to try to be more out going and post more often. I have been positive since either 78 or 80. and am doing well considering the laundry list of diseases and disorders. I think I must have signed up for the disease or complication of the month, and I bet it was the lifetime plan ;-)

No disease on the face of the planet has been 100% fatal
