Dating affects children
To get some insight into what women go through on these dating websites, I pulled aside one of my family members who I knew had spent some time on these sites looking for her future spouse.By the time of this interview, she had already given up and moved on, finally discovering her future husband while visiting old friends at her alma mater. Ryan (RD): What year did you sign up with an online dating website and how long did you keep your account? RD: What were the majority of messages that you received from guys like? I got some commenting on my picture telling me how “hot” I was…how “good” I looked.That was one of the main reasons I called it quits.It made me SO uncomfortable that guys so much older than me, older than most of my siblings (all of which are 8 years plus older than me), were sending me messages telling me that I was “hot”.I am getting terribly uncomfortable just thinking about it.RD: Did you get ANY messages from guys that seemed nice at all? AW: No, but the creepy messages most likely ruined it for any decent guys that might be around.They’re not going to love anything short of your authentic self. Okay, it’s time to have an open and frank discussion about the battle of the sexes and the dating game.
He is hard working, profitable in business, conducts himself with integrity, and has played leadership roles in a number of local charitable causes.
Those messages made me run far, far away from online dating.
In hindsight, I suppose if I had stayed active with it for a little longer MAYBE I would have encountered a “nice” guy.
He has made a concerted effort to be respected in his town and has succeeded.
Yet the one person who should respect him the most is his son, but that has been a struggle. There are no easy answers, but there are positive directions. Families are not the military and there is no uniform code of conduct.
