It was a long road to here. Many dating disasters, different dating avenues and falling in love more than once. Some of the men I've met along the way weren't all that crash hot. I've had some misses. I therefore have decided to chronicle these disasters so my readers out there can benefit from my follies and learn the differences between man and woman. Helping me on this journey is my bff B. Her dating woes are just as colourful. So basically I'm blogging about two single gals trying to make it in a world full of men where some are genuine and some are not.
Now you're probably thinking, I know the differences between men and women. I agree, some of these things are very obvious. Even though I have been dating or in relationships on and off since I was fifteen, it wasn't until I left my husband in my 30s that I had the maturity and wisdom to have more insight into the world of men. When I was naive and young I wanted to please men/boys, wanting them to like me. I was an awkward teen with pimples and I don't think I ever got over the teasing, at least not till recently, in the past five years perhaps. The reasons I picked the wrong men was a trend I carried through my whole dating life but it wasn't until my marriage broke up that I worked out exactly what some men are about.
Don't get me wrong, men aren't the only ones at fault. I've seen many men heartbroken by callous women. But I can only talk about my experiences and I'm sure along the way I may have hurt someone too. Maybe I'm wrong but I've seen more heartbroken women than men. They bounce back, we don't so much. As I said this doesn't apply to every man but it applies to many.
There have been two men in my life that I don't think I ever quite got over. One to this day still plagues my life but I need to move on. It is better to have loved and lost to never have loved at all. Perhaps this is true. Feeling the rush of love and falling in love is something I wish could be bottled. If the rise was worth the fall then it was worth it. Resilience is the key in the dating world and luckily I am.
Love of my life. Can you have more than one love of your life?
