Re: Falling "IN LOVE" again
"What I can't wrap my head around is why someone would want to punish themselves and sentence themselves to a life without love because of a crime that another person committed. That seems completely illogical to me."
Because I am not feeling "punished". I am very happy with my situation, and am in fact thriving in it!. The affection given and returned to/from my gf and I makes me very content and happy! The problem is it apparently is not enough for her. Bananapeel nailed it:
" completely agree with that statement. The last woman I was dating was OK with me being non-committal for about six months then she wanted to move the relationship forward. Consequently I broke up with her because I didn't feel it was fair to her to continue dating if we had different relationship goals. She was devastated because the dating pool is not as good for women as it is for men once they get into their 30's and I was the first "great guy" that she met in a couple of years. On the other hand I found another woman to date within a week of looking that was more attractive, more fun, and had similar relationship goals as I did. That's at least what I've experienced. The dating pool is skewed towards men once women get into their 30's, which gives men more choice to pick their ideal relationship dynamic. It also lets men be more willing to trade partners because we know there are other good options that are easily found.
Sad or not, this has been the truth for me, as I have been told many many times, "you are a great guy" havent found one of them in a long time! It is really a target rich environment. I dont want to multi date, I dont need more than one good woman, or want more than one. But not willing to go where I dont want to go, and willing to look some more to find someone compatable if necessary.
