Separated Man Seeking LTR-Yeah that's one to bring home to the family. There are lots of ppl here who have been thru similiar situations and are willing to lend an ear or offer good advice.They may think/feel they are ready to move on yet in reality most are not.Most recently I have met two men who have had their wives leave them within one to four months and they 'thought' they were ready to move on, date, and start another relationship. WOW, Oh yes, I agree with you "Whereareallthemen", and I am adding to it, that this work in both ways... I am looking for someone who is honest, caring, sensitive...."Gag me.I had got e-mails from current wives trying to date someone in the side, and what really get me the most, about this is that they will not come forward until you had been talking to them for a little while, the worst part, I had stop talking to other women I found attractive too, because I wanted to see if this was going somewhere... She cheated on me, my divorce papers can't get here fast enough. Now what kind of man would respond a profile like that -- boring, cookie-cutter men, that's who. I have a feeling you would have had bad dates no matter who you had dated, except you might be blaming them on something else, like maybe they were Dutch or had goatees or had small ears, or....yes, it hit me like been stoned in the face, and hurts. Invest some time and energy in your profile -- instead of looking like everyone else, make it a unique reflection of who YOU are, and maybe you'll start attracting a classier breed of men."Loop hiker...job in completely de-railing the thread, and going off topic. You should really try and be a little bit more sympathetic.Come on Women, please, I am not a saint, I will never request myself to canonization under any trifle or technicality in Gods laws, actually... When one gets jilted, the MOST imortant thing is to spend time with someone who wants to be with them, can't you see that? I would like to say that those who have a couple of poor dating experiences, only to chalk it all up to some cheap and cheesy generalizations, need to back up, chill, and re-evaluate themselves and what they're here for. Yes, they should make sure its really over before they start dating again, but they need to as quickly as possible IMO, or they could end up just being bitter & sad.
Granted I know what some are going thru and yes it's a process. Not go rushing into another relationship for fear of being alone. Everybody has to get back on the horse and start somewhere.But all i know is,no thank you certainly not for me.As they very often still,have the emotional baggage & dramas going on...That's why I tell them to spend time with friends, family people they know.They're usually extremely vulnerable and wanting that special attention from a member of the opposite sex to feel wanted again.
