One of the blog readers suggested a topic for this week, so I'll address it from a single woman's perspective. Feel free to jump right on in. As a single woman and dating, you run into all sorts of men. For the most part, most men who approach are single. But then there are those who forget that they have a significant other.
Let me first define single, because unfortunately there are those that don't know or just don't care. Single is Not Married. If there is a Mrs. Jones or a Mr. Jones in the horizon, you are not single. I will even add that if you are in a committed relationship and you both agreed to not see other people, you are not really in the "single" category either...you're in the "not married" category, but you have someone and you're not really single...so don't approach women or men acting like you're "footloose and fancy free."
If you're unhappy with the one you're with, then move on before trying to get someone else involved in your drama. Life shouldn't be that complicated.
I was watching this Lifetime movie last night. The main character's husband cheated on her. She didn't confront him about it immediately, instead she went out and did the same thing. Does it make it right? No. Two wrongs don't make a right. In this case, her doing the same thing ended up deadly. The man she cheated with became obsessive. Cheating not only destroys the bond between the two people involved, it can destroy families.
It kind of makes you leery on jumping into a relationship. Trust definately has to be there. Makes me wonder what happens in a relationship that's so bad, that it'll cause a man or woman to go outside of it to seek sexual gratification or are they looking for an emotional attachment that's missing from the relationship they are in.
The Nikki questions for the week: "Have you ever gotten involved with someone who lied to you about being married or in a relationship? If so, how did you deal with the situation?"
"If you are the one who cheated, what were some of your reasons?"
