Internet personals - for the guys
Just out of a busted relationship that some like to call marriage. Despondent. Lonely. I was suffering a potent cocktail of emotions put through the heartbreak blender. My marriage had lasted for eight more-or-less happy years, until Christmas Eve a few years ago...too many drinks, a few home truths emerging about infidelities. I admit, I had a few indiscretions to admit to. Which I did...reluctantly. So, after some acrimonious yelling, screaming and tearing out of hair, I got my marching orders.
I moped around for a while like a little boy whose puppy had just died. I continued drinking more than was good for me, failed to turn up to work due to hangovers, and generally went into a downward spiral. Some of my friends started avoiding me, and life was very depressing indeed. Even considered the Hemingway option at one stage.
But, one fine day I woke up and said to myself, "Enough is enough, snap out of it, moron!" So I gradually sobered up, took a more mature approach to work and started getting my friends back. However, something was lacking...female company. Being 41, I didn't want to hit the bars, clubs pubs and all those loser joints again. So, I did what I thought I would never do: Internet personals! For a while I cruised the profiles, checking them all out. To my astonishment, there were female versions of ME out there - just looking for casual fun, no desire for romantic walks on the beach and all of that nonsense. I was shocked, and very pleasantly surprised.
So, I did plenty of research into the various sites, picked a couple, and embarked on a scorched earth policy of targetting as many as I could. The results were amazing, and some of the encounters I had would make terrific stories for raunchy men's magazines.
I have met and seduced women aged between 21 and 50, and all of them realize and understand that nothing serious is likely to develop out of it. In my opinion, monogamy is unnatural - every attampt I have made in this direction has failed miserably, and the divorce figures back up my position here. Marriage, it has been proposed by some experts, is based on nothing more than mistrust. It is meant to act like a brake on infidelity; I'd liken that particular institution to shackles rather than a brake. Sure, there are many marriages of long standing out there, but how many are just a facade? Many, I'd reckon.
Anyway, I am now a happy man with few worries, and a little black book full of numbers to call at my whim. Don't be scared of online dating - embrace it, but do your homework! Men have less to worry about than women in this scenario, that's beyond dispute, so enjoy yourselves fellas!
