(I swear this is all I wanted.)
There are all kinds of people who are “accepted for who they are.” Even Charles Manson had people who “accepted him for who he was.” He continued to hang around these people who “accepted him for who he was,” in part, because he could treat them any way he chose to since they allowed him to do so. Doesn’t mean it was right. It just means he found people that let him treat them that way. At what point do you say, “Hey, this is really WHO this person is and I know I deserve WAY better than this—especially when you’ve HAD way better than that before?”
I have gone out from time-to-time with gentlemen suitors on occasion that run the gamut of all nationalities, shapes, and sizes with ages ranging from 20’s through 60’s. I mean, I don’t discriminate—if you’re nice, you’re nice.
But the men vs. women world can fascinate me at times and I’d LOVE for anyone to give me their honest opinions on this because I, for the life of me, can’t figure it out. And, by all means, if you think there may be something wrong with my way of thinking—please feel free to let me know or explain your side of it to me. I’m all ears and won’t take offense.
Three weeks ago, I had two different dates lined up with two different people:
A. The first guy—I had formally met just the day before the date and is someone in his mid-20’s and from a foreign country. He told me he remembered me from a whole year ago when I made a brief stop at a store he worked at part-time but I hadn’t really seen him since. He told me every item of clothing I had worn that day when I came into the store and it triggered my memory.
Long story short—he called me the very next day and wanted to go for a run in a park that afternoon. The weather was beautiful, people were all over the park, and I thought it was an awesome first-date type thing to do—with the exception that we decided to walk around the park because I get winded too quickly. Seriously? Run?! Who are we kidding? Let’s get real.
Two hours later we parted ways when he had to go to work and only 15 minutes later after he arrived at work he was kind enough to call to thank me for meeting him out. A SIMPLE AND UNCOMPLICATED DATE, I TELL YOU!
B. The second guy—I have known for a few years and is much older and in his mid-50’s. I’ve been out with him several times before—off and on. It’s nothing serious and we’ve talked on the phone many times. He always asks me what types of things I like. Since he doesn’t like to “guess” what a woman likes—he’d prefer women tell him straight out. So I’ve done this on several occasions. I’ve also mentioned things I like or want to do even when he doesn’t ask me what I like. He’s generally smart enough and pays attention.
BUT HERE’S WHAT HAPPENED IN A SPAN OF A WEEK WITH THE SECOND GUY:
