The Confession Booth

  • Kay:  “I used to feel anger and bitterness at men in general.  I was convinced that most men were self-centered, cold, and uncaring creatures.  I had experienced the confusion and callousness of two men who spurned my love and devotion for the flailing arms of other women.  I finally figured out that though men can be complex and fickle, they still want and desire love just like women do.  They just prefer one who has learned the art of using her imagination to keep a man’s psyche off balance.”
  • Gigi:  “I just recently stopped seeing a married man, and my self-esteem has received a major boost.  I understand now that I and women like me, knowingly share men with other women because we often feel like we can’t do better. For too long, I accepted the position of second banana, because my need for affection overcame my good sense.  My heart has been broken often with my assistance due to my dire need for male attention to validate me as a woman.  However, I now know that it’s far better to sit home alone with a good movie and popcorn than accept the crumbs from someone else’s table.”
  • Kamille:  “I often wonder why women like me hang on in the relationship when we know without a doubt that our partner no longer cares and has ceased to show respect.  We often accept ill-treatment and little or no affection to occasionally feel enhanced in a pair of masculine arms.”
  • Carl: “In a relationship, if I used to call all the time and I stop, it simply means that I don’t feel the same way anymore. I just wish women could read the signs and use some pride and move on quietly without having to receive a legal notification that it’s no longer working.  It is draining and taxing on the person who has changed his/her mind about the relationship to try to answer why.  Sometimes the reason just can’t be expressed in words.”
  • Landon: “As a decent guy, I should not have to pay for the sins of the brother before me. Therefore, I hate to date a woman who wears her distrust of men, due to her bumps and bruises, on her sleeve.”
