Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Re: Thank You, White Knights

Not a big one for singling people out however in this case I want to put my hand up and list
Personal and MEM, two rational and calm men that see through all the BS and state their position on issues with authority and clarity.

I often shake my head at some of the posters here, thankfully one of the worst was recently banned but there are irrational, women fearers all over TAM who make discussion difficult and not worth the energy. I know the world is full of men like this but thankfully it is not my reality, the men in my life are amazing, loving, well balanced and rational men, good men and really decent people.

Re: Thank You, White Knights

Good evening
thank you - especially since we have often disagreed. I appreciate someone recognizing that people can disagree without either of them being evil.


I hate people who co-opt words or phrases and give them different meanings. "nice guy" should be a positive thing. "all lives matter" should be simply a statement about the value of human life. "White Knight" should be someone who goes out of their way to help people in distress.

There are a lot of men and women here (including faithfulwife) who make an honest effort to help people. They may not always agree with each other on methods, but they have a common goal of helping.

Re: Thank You, White Knights

Lila,

You are the bomb.

Out of all the men on TAM, Farsidejunky would be my first choice for:
1. Son in law
2. Our local police chief or
3. Our regional head of homeland security

Thanks, richard. I agree on the use of these terms that have been hijacked in order to use them in a derogatory way. Not only that, but I was told earlier today that the only reason you White Knights are nice to me is because you want to have sex with me. That's extremely insulting to you guys, IMO. I know that people of the opposite sex can simply enjoy interacting with each other without trying to get into the sack with them. But these guys simply don't have a very high opinion of any man who doesn't agree with them, I guess. (shrug)

You and I have disagreed a few times but mostly I agree with your stance on things. You are a great guy.

Re: Thank You, White Knights

Holland,
You are a great example of someone who FULLY escaped a terrible marriage. I believe that you know that extricating yourself legally - is very different from doing so emotionally. You did both.

Your children and your H are very fortunate.

Re: Thank You, White Knights

Richard,

You are the 1 in a hundred.

75 - would have left
20 - would have stayed and cheated
4 - would have poisoned the marriage with their resentment

You have focused on the silver lining. And made it work.

You are TAM's white knight.

Good things come to those who wait...greater things come to those who get off their a$$ and do anything to make it happen.

Re: Thank You, White Knights

Good evening Faithful Wife
If I met you I might very well want to have sex with you, you seem like a nice person, but since that possibility is extraordinarily remote, it doesn't explain why I would be nice to you - or to any other woman I'm not planning on sleeping with.

I think some people believe that all actions are done for directly selfish reasons - to gain money, power sex etc.

I'm not going to claim that there are a lot of people who do good deeds and who are nice for completely altruistic reasons (but some are), but I think many do because they want people they respect to have a high opinion of them. I think that is a completely reasonable motivation.
