Funny how that works....

Re: Dating after divorce

It seems things changed when she got a better job and was busy. Then, her "surgery" and getting sick just compounded things I guess. All in all, it seems under all the pressure her true self appeared. It's been a few days, and she ghosted. Wow... Just wow... That's the appreciation.

What happened to the modern woman? This cannot be all due to this feminism movement. How about equalism? I think that may work better than feminism. Just a guess.

Have you ever heard the saying, that if you put in more than you get out, it's time to get the F out?

Re: Dating after divorce

I don't know if she's representative of today's females or not since I don't know any in that age group. But she sounds like a spoiled, inconsiderate, entitled brat to me and that type has always been around.

Listen to your mom.

If she does come back, you should just thank her for showing you her true colors this early on.

Re: Dating after divorce

Sorry all, just been taking time for myself over the past few months. Nothing from the ex, it's like we never existed. She didn't even contact me for taxes (she was on my return). Attorney told me wait to see if she contact me. She didn't.. I guess, drama less is better than drama full. I do wonder if she ever loved me in the first place. Possibly, just to get me so we can have a family, then she wouldn't have to earn her own income and just take care of the children. Which, is okay til they are in school, and we could had afforded it. Yet, it seemed she couldn't get pregnant (my fault of course), so she just through the marriage in the toilet. Makes little sense. To be honest, nothing makes sense anymore.

I do wonder if it would had been wiser and cheaper to go through mediation, instead of lawyers. I know that she felt blindsided by the divorce filing. Not sure why, as I gave her days notice. I guess, I am just wondering why all this happened... Everything seemed much better and easier prior to marriage. I've dated, and there is interest in this one woman. However, I have to wonder what are her true motives. I can say, divorce changes the way I look at mates. I no longer have the rose colored glasses on. I try to give the benefit of the doubt, but it is hard to trust. I am more relaxed and feel freedom after the divorce. I guess the question as to why still bothers me. I know I will never know the answer to that question. It's been nearly a year since we've conversed, so I feel it is safe to say I will never hear from her again. Funny (or ironic) thing happened the other day. The photographers called and left me a message hoping all is well with us and when you want to pickup the video and pictures for our wedding. She spent several thousand on these.. To this day, she never picked any of them up. Weird... No?
