I've had a strong sex drive since puberty that continues.

Teenage Girls pull just a many evil, thoughtless, nasty and cruel stunts on Teen Boys as the boys do to them......Boys may run to one type of stunt and girls another but it all ends up fairly even.....Humans are a fairly screwed-up bunch of primates. Just ask the "nice guys" around here...use and abuse knows no gender boundaries.

...I sense a very negative attitude toward relationships that I don't think formed anew when her husband left her...yes, girls use just as often...

I went to an all-girls' high school, so I didn't find out what happened to the boys. I only witnessed what happened to some of the girls. All my friends treated their boyfriends very well. Some were treated nicely by their boyfriends, and others were not.

It seems to me that people are reading things into my words that were never there.

???

If I had a negative attitude toward relationships, I would never have gotten married. As it happened, I had a very positive, optimistic attitude toward relationships, especially my own. Not sure why you "sense" otherwise...

To be honest blanket statements of that type.."All my friends treated their boyfriends very well " tend to show a gender biased one-sidedness. Highly unlikely that "all" your friends treated their boyfriends well by their boyfriends standards...just by the reason that information that was shared with you being inherently biased by the girls own perspective.

I do admit that I see things more readily from the female point of view, and always have. It that's a bias, well, being female is a big part of my identity. I'm sure there are many men out there--possibly on this very forum--who speak with a clear, frank bias toward the male point of view.

I must admit to being a bit bemused at being taken to task for speaking with a bias toward my own gender. A

...I think you're one of the few posters that seems to view most things in an "all or nothing"...you made no mistakes in your marriage, your husband gave you zero clues, you will never involve yourself in another relationship, and all of your friends treated their boyfriends well...all or nothing...I'm afraid that an all or nothing attitude has never boded well for someone long term and maybe, the demise of your marriage is a result...

Well Z and magnaniman, I don't see anything wrong in having strong opinions and expressing them firmly. I feel it's unnecessary to preface my comments on a forum with "in my opinion" because it's a given that ALL our posts fall under the umbrella of personal opinion. To me,
