Right off the bat I've discovered a few of the pratfalls of dating though.
- Stalkers. No joking here ladies. My situation was mild but it could have turned bad fast. That's scary shit. Be careful with your safety.
- Just because he's on a dating site and talking to you doesn't mean he's single...
Yeah, that number 2. She's a doozy. I got an email this morning from the wife of a man I was emailing (only emailing, we had never talked on the phone much less met in person. And the emails were completely G rated). Turns out that they are not only still together but expecting a baby. I, of course, was horrified. I let her know that I was unaware of her and that had I known, I never would have gone there. I wished her the best of luck with her new baby. And then she called me a whore and the C word. And that was it for me. I was pissed. Her husband had lied to both of us and yet I was the dirty little bitch? I don't think so. And so I told her in no uncertain terms what I thought of her attitude and of her POS husband.
I've said this before and I will admit it again. I've been the other woman. It's not something I'm proud of. That woman has a right to hate me. Although, if she doesn't get over it at least a little bit, she's going to die of an aneurysm, but that's another story.
My point is this. I've been in relationships, some wonderful, some sucktastic. I've made horrible choices and hurt some very good people. I've grown and learned from these things. I know who I am and what I want and need out of life. I'm finding my voice and getting the courage to ask for it. I will NOT let some woman blame her marital problems on me because she can't face the fact that her husband is a lying jerk.
Look him the eye and call a spade a spade honey. I want a man but let me tell you flat out right now:
I DON'T SHARE!
