Forty and over dating
Call me shallow, etc etc whatever, that's fine with me.
I know me a helluva lot better than anyone else does. Since I am not a horny, partying twenty something or a desparate to have kids thirty something these rules work for me.
Hell, most women can't or won't cook a decent meal anymore and are as a general rule clueless in regard to the domestic arts.
To break the vow of "til' death do us part" over an emotional state that may or may not be another person's fault, is shallow and shows a lack of emotional maturity. Don't give me that crap about how happy you are with yourself, you're not and we both know it.
It tells me that woman is too self absorbed to be a reliable partner in the future. If you and I had fallen in love twenty years ago, gotten married and had a family and you had put on the weight, I would still be with you, but we didn't and so I see no need to accommodate your lack of character and discipline. I won't seriously consider dating a woman who has a lot of hangups about sex.
Even though you may be older in age, you can always keep your mind young with mature dating!
