You may wonder about that title. Strangely enough, those are words that I said to a gentleman from a dating site, who told me that I was too “tied down”. He was looking for someone who could just “run with him, at a moment’s notice”. To which I replied: “I would gladly introduce him to my ex-husband. He has exactly the life you describe!!” Strangely enough, I never heard from him again. I am not exactly sure what he was thinking when he asked out a lady who clearly stated in her profile that she was divorced with three kids.
So, as each newly single man looks through the “window of pictures” of the many newly single ladies like myself, not even remotely seeing a similarity between us, and the ex-wife, there is a disconnect with the reality. Who are these newly polished women in their 40s and 50s. They have done up their hair, and found the best light possible to capture a picture that doesn’t show all that which they want to hide. They pray. NO. In the attempt at sheer honesty here, I PRAY, that the years of worry, and stress and loneliness will allow someone new to see something that someone old saw long ago.
