Sadly, NO ... and the even sadder fact is that my own children (whom I raised as a Long Term Single Parent, and made sure to FLEE with them from that short disaster of a marriage to a violent, abusive sociopath -- their father -- and I did walk away from EVERY BIT of what I had/earned to that point in time) ...
Willingly helped this Ex once Again BURGLARIZE my HOME in August 2006.
An Empty-Nesting Single Retiree (female) who has NEVER known the Unconditional Love of another. There has only been 3 men who have even tried to enter my life (and one was the short disaster of a marriage) over the past 3+ decades (and I'll admit to at least that many adult years) ... NOT ONE could LOVE me for ME ... (no unconditional love at all).
MY LIFE. (I can only dream of this happening (Unconditional Love) ... for REALITY is that there are no prospects on the horizon either) And ... being someone who has worked HARD all her LIFE (and EARNED her Pensions (including Military Retirement), her HOME, and yes, the ability to ENJOY my life a bit too -- I have to WORRY about (because this has been my experience) the men who are only looking for what "THINGS" they could gain by trying to date me.
SO SAD of a comment on society and the men of my generation, but there are so many like this that it is a FAR better thing that I REMAIN HAPPILY SINGLE than have to deal with the (potential) HEARTACHE of being abused/used yet again.
