I am sure others can relate and Mark comes to mind in particular.


When i 1st read that I thought you were saying that Mark was a good example of a better personality than looks! lol

So how do I convince guys to not go for the "perfect looks" woman & give me a chance? lol but maybe not that laughing about it.

I am going to look for that book. Since I've been back trying to start dating maybe I need to take a second look at what I really must have/don't want. Being 48, it seems that most men my age are overweight and old looking, which says to me sedate. I don't want sedate, and I do want someone who takes care of themselves, but looks don't have to be perfect. I do know that much. But coming out of a relationship that was actually very similar to my marriage, it was always their time for other things was so important, that I was often left waiting. Job was so important, that it required the extra time. And I should've recognized that I was followng the same pattern of being understanding. No more. If I want to share my life with someone, it needs to, has to go both ways. Thanks for your insights.

here is the book, it really helped me to define what I needed to do, it un-muddied the waters if you will, well worth the $12 I spent - used from amazon.

EG is highly intelligent with 12 years of college and his emails are a rambling mess of misspellings, typos and no punctuation.
