Okay so this is the very first rant I've ever posted on ATS, but honestly, I just don't get it and I need some honesty from all you single gents out
I am a middle-aged, better-than-average looking divorced female (not trying to be conceited here but stating what many have told me) who has, for many
years and reasons, stayed away from the singles scene because I just didn't think it was worth it. The last guy I was involved with turned out to be
a sociopath who haunted me for years and years. Anyway, a few months ago, I decided that life is too short and I meet a great guy - we have lots in
common, the chemistry is great, he professes his intentions to build a loving and solid future together (his statement and not mine) and all is
cautiously hopeful. Then completely out of the blue, a friend emails me to say that she just saw a profile of my man on one of the dating sites and
it's current because it says he's "Online Now". WTF???
What is it that we women are missing in our thinking? Believe me, I'm independent and have learned that you don't need a man to feel complete (and
vice versa for all you gentlemen out there, as well as all you same-sex attracted individuals), but just when I finally let my guard down and think
"well maybe...", I get hit upside the head with a ton of bricks.
Can someone please explain this to me? If you're a middle-aged man and you meet a compatible, attractive, affectionate female who is supposedly the
antithesis of what you've been looking for, what is it that drives you to stray? Can someone please explain this insanity to me? Needless to say,
his butt is being kicked to the curb but I feel like this was it for me and I'm not putting myself out there again. Can anyone lend some clarity to
By the way, thanks for reading my rant. I'm just really fed up and hurt...
