How Did I Get Here, And Where Is The Next Turn?

Greetings and salutations to all who deem this worthy of your time...

Is it just me, or are there really only a few truly decent people in this world when it comes to relationships?

Someone close to my heart got her heart broken quite recently. She learned the man she was seeing, one who had agreed they would not see anyone else, was a lying, slime ball. It isn't the first time she had heard he was seeing other women, but this time, I think he has hurt her too much for her to ever be more than friends with him. Me? I doubt I could even do that. I guess she's a better person than I am.

It makes me sad to see her so upset, but I think her venting about it helped.

I have a male friend who is searching for someone with whom to share his life, as well. He keeps getting involved with women who use him, then dump him. I worry about him because he has started to drink a bit more over his latest fiasco.

I think we all, men as well as women, need to have someone in our lives that treats us with respect and dignity. We all have feelings, and deserve to have those feelings taken into consideration. Let's face it, being alone is not how we are supposed to go through life, but, I have come to an idea about that as well. We deserve better than being with people who ignore our feelings. It's worse to be with someone who treats you wrong, hurts you in any way, or refuses to consider what their actions do to their so called loved ones, than to be alone.

I've already decided, if anything happens to the husband, I will spend the rest of my life alone, if I out live him. Not that he is a fabulous guy that can not be replaced, (Sorry, hon, but we both know we have flaws)I just don't think I could handle being out there dating the way people treat each other these days. My heart is fragile as it is, with out the Mexican Hat Dance from callous creeps who care only for themselves.

Feel free to tell your friend about the " losers" I had in my life. It felt Luke I was doomed to be alone until I met my hubby. You have met and spent time with all the men I've had in my life ( except Matt) and you have been my shoulder to cry on many many times... she will find her Sherman.... just take time to decide what's important and don't settle for lessta5
