My ex-husband and I are sort of cordial friends. We talk a few times a week, and have mended things a lot since his second wife divorced him. He's been single-again for 5 yrs+. He's a major under-achiever and has some addiction issues. We trade dating stories and sometimes, he asks me for advice.

Wow! Thanks for sharing that marina! I love that epiphany!

My guy friend is doing the same thing. He talks about wanting perfect because he does not want to be hurt, go through another breakup ( he was married once for over 23 years).

I was browsing the match ads recently and there was a new guy whose whole ad basically said "I want a woman who won't play games and who will tell the truth & not hurt me."

I am def. not afraid of getting hurt or my heart broken because I dont think it could happen to me anymore..

I am secure enough in that if I did fall in love or whatever and it didnt work out I could move on.. I have done it in the past and I survived and if it happens again then I deal with it.. I would love that opportunity. Universe , bring it on baby.

What is that saying??? It is better to have experienced love and lost
