Since I started going to meetup groups for singles last fall (only non-alcohol ones---there are already enough that do drink-a-thons), getting rejected by women on OLD inherently packs less of a sting now.
Instead of feeling sorry for myself when I scroll down the page and see how many women don't want to hear from me, I feel sorry for them.
Why? Because when I scroll through one of those dating sites, I see a gallery of future cougars. Today's cougars are women who were once "hot" and they knew it, and they farted and f***ed around and played games when men really needed love, and eventually men started avoiding them. Some men even moved overseas, married native women, and lived happily ever after.
So... now when I'm at a singles meetup having fascinating conversations with some of the women there, I think about the ones who aren't there because they're playing games and they probably don't want to face the fact that the only bridges they're burning are their own.
Don't be one of those women!!!
