Or perhaps you should set your sights on only single dudes? I know it's not easy, the taken and married ones are that much more exciting.


lol hang on.
Firstly I dont purposefully go for men who arnt single, i dont find homewrecking to be all that fun or exciting really. Generally its just something i've had the misfortune of finding out about afterwards.

Secondly, I dont sleep with people who i'm not in a relationship with, let alone who are in a relationship with someone else, so thats not really an issue.
I just seem to have had a string of really bad luck over the last year or so.
can i has nice man? :(

Yes, but you'll think you're too good for him, niceness has a correlation with aesthetics for the most part.

Ah bummer they don't tell you until afterwards? That's shitty. :(

Do you ask if they have a girlfriend first? I dunno what to say, aside from switching teams...

Sorry for making assumptions there btw.

This.

A life is romantic misery is your punishment for being attractive and confident.

It evens out in the end.

In review I'm not sure what I meant with the last sentence.

If you are attractive and confident and wholly unsuccessful, perhaps you are not as attractive or confident as you think you are.

Or you have shit luck.

It's a crap chute.

I saw he had a photo of her as his phone background and everything.
Fantastic, good to see things are as normal



Hamdir wrote:.... because I actually kinda hoped it would go somewhere this time. I do rather like him. Since I broke up with my ex half a year ago, five men have cheated on their girlfriends with me. FIVE, and they are all still with those same girlfriends. It seems i'm just some dirty little secret, hurrah. I give up, I really do.


The way i see it, in this situation, if you suspect this to be the case then the question you have to ask yourself is do you actually really want to be with someone like that?

If you're ok with the fact that fidelity seems to mean little to him then that's up to you in the end.

It also seems to me that either you've been fairly spectacularly unlucky with your choice in men or you need to make yourself a little less available.

Magmortar may be NU rated competitively, but i've still turned mine into an unstoppable WRECKIN' MACHINE!

Also, there is no correlation between Pokémon and loneliness, don't try it.
