Advice from a friend's father:

Quote: friend's father
OK, I have given this some deep thought. We need to convert you to a bad boy. (1) Get a black leather jacket; (2) get a Mike Tyson facial tattoo; and (3) enroll in an Elvis Presley wanna be school and learn how to maintain the scowl Elvis wore. You will get so much poontang (sp) that you will be sleeping 12 hours to regain your strength.

Oof. X-wife used to watch that a lot. It was part of my Real Housewives hockey pregame. Good stuff to fill the rage meter.

Back to lurking for me. I've no real advice; could never be arsed to deal with the dating scene. Gives me anxiety just thinking about it.
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

As a divorce attorney, I can certainly attest (anecdotally), to the veracity of this statement


If you just want to date and not get
serious, wear a wedding ring. I've
heard men say they never had more
action than after they got married.
Women love to think they're stealing
another woman's man. And you're
safe, you won't want a permanent
thing because you already have one.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

And conversely, the best girlfriend is married to someone else. No worry's about missing an anniversary, birthday or family get to gethers. Don't have to pretend to care about her kids or family. It's great. She won't complain when you want to go play in Vegas. Probably never have to sleep together or make closet space.

Just surmising.

Just a couple generations ago, people
got married just so they could screw
around. Didn't worry about getting
pregnant, no DNA tests. No worry about
your reputation as a virgin, you were
married. Lots of men only date married
women, no worries of them getting tricked
into marriage.

It would be a mistake to believe that all of those relationships lack value, quality, and depth. Most single people are angling. Take someone who has everything to lose, and you can safely get spiritually intimate. The conversation at that level can be really deep, and might even improve the marriage.

Some things you just can't tell a spouse without ruining a marriage .

UPDATE


Woman #1 -- Well, she finally emailed me back to tell me she would love to grab drinks with me but that she "just found" out she was pregnant so she would not be imbibing in any alcohol when we got together

Woman #2 -- Yesterday, as I was sitting on the train, she walked through my train car, made eye contact with me, quickly averted her eyes, then proceeded walking through to the next train car

Run away as fast as you can.

Yup, You hit her with too much too soon,
now she's spooked. If she's that skittish
and easily put off, you don't want her
anyway.

As far as the pregnant one, the fact that
she told you she's with child and still
wants to see you, means she's looking for
a dad for the kid. Uh oh..

Never rode on a train. What a fun life
you have..
