In Search Of
The Perfect Guy
Profiles In Courage
January 17, 2019
Sarah married the same man twice, because she was unable to “luck up on anything better.” She is currently divorced. She had been in and out of several relationships with guys that were unfulfilling and extremely disappointing. Her words…”I am thirty six years old, and I often wonder will I ever come across a relationship where I will feel loved, trusting and comfortable. I am a school teacher and I prefer men who are ambitious, exposed and intellectually compatible. But lately, I’ve been trying to expand my horizons by being more open to dating guys who are not necessarily on my social plane. But that has not worked either. I’ve found that men from a different social strata have a tendency to be overly sensitive about our differences as it relates to taste, friends and social pursuits. I often wonder will I ever find someone who’s willing to accept me as is, and vice-versa. But I refuse to give up.”
Lynn – “I used to go to parties looking to meet the man of my dreams. But I never met anyone who was sincere about a relationship or really interested in getting to know me as a person. I am 29, and I’ve met enough players to write a book about it. Then I met a guy at the health club who felt like a soul mate. We flew high together for three months, and I bragged about his attentiveness, and non-elusiveness. Then, his “girlfriend” called me one night and told me to stay away from him, and I let go without ever confronting him because I couldn’t stand the drama.”
Jill – “I’m 34, and I’ve been in two serious relationships. But neither of the men wanted to get married, and that’s what I want more than anything else in the world. I lived with both men, and I learned to never do that again. But now, I’m somewhat bitter towards men and suspicious of “kind” treatment. If I met a guy who was genuine, I’d probably wouldn’t believe him anyway. I wear my scars on the outside. But I don’t know how to hide them and I’m not sure I want to. It’s a form of protection for me.
