Lemon lips should lighten up a little

DEAR MISS LONELYHEARTS: I ate so much at dinner with a very new girlfriend that I quietly undid the button at the top of my jeans for a little more room. I forgot about it, and when we stood up to leave, my date looked at my waistline and the two inches of skin now showing and made an expression like she was sucking on a lemon. She said, "What is going on with you?" bugged her eyes out at my waist, walked to the coat check and checked herself out. I paid the bill and walked past her getting into a cab. I made such a bad impression. Should I try to apologize before she tells people I'm a weirdo? -- Embarrassed Guy, Winnipeg

Dear Embarrassed: Take a stab at explaining what happened. She may not want to go out with you again, but hopefully you will quell the gossip. Lots of women have done the same thing with a long overshirt as a cover-up.

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts: I have a lot of energy to burn and don't know quite what to do with it. I could date three women at once and keep up to all of them in every way imaginable. When I have just one woman I tend to be too demanding. Would it best, now that I'm nearing 50, to just accept who I am, and accommodate that with a few part-time relationships so I don't wear on anybody? I was thinking in terms of a you-know-what buddy, a sports partner (into tennis and fun) and a kind of intellectual friend with privileges. I'm not manic -- I had that checked out -- but I don't require as much sleep as most people and can burn the candle at both ends. -- Thousand Watts, Tuxedo

Dear Watts: If you can find three women who will knowingly share you like that, you'll be very lucky indeed. Sneaking around is a pain and dangerous for everybody. How about looking for a very high-energy woman and being completely forthright about what you want and need? Highly sexed women have an even harder time finding a match, because it is less seemly for a woman to ask for what she wants right out. One of the advantages of online dating is being able to be truthful in advertising your wants and see who responds to it.
