Tread CarefullyPosted: May 26, 2013
i’m sitting in a hotel just past tallahassee. i was falling asleep while driving so thought it best to pull over. i have a few posts sitting in the draft section so i figured i’d update since i’m done wit checking emails. i even forgot my phone at the house. fml. see….i’m that much of a wreck atm. oh look BB’s back. yeeeeeeah Bb.
One of the servers at my local approached me a few days ago and informed me her mom is trying to convince her to date me.
Holy out the blue fuck-monkey’s. WHAT???!!?
I made the perplexed dumb Disney male character face. You know the face. The face the boy makes when the female character comes on to him. I digress. Apparently mom learned I’m about to retire from the Navy, have never been married, have no kids, have a VERY good paying occupation in the wings, health care benefits, a pension, and I own my house in a VERY great neighborhood.
The way my friend described it, her mom had stars in her eyes.
Now, my girls is cool, but we’d never be anything but friends. Funny thing though- is I already know most women I get involved with see me in the same manner my friends mom does. I’m a meal ticket. A path to easy street. I actually don’t like telling women I’m about to retire from the military.
Even my mom has had to point out to her friends how “Danny has to be careful of any long-term prospects”. But the beauty is…..GAME. I recall my mom jokingly telling a woman the last thing she’s worried about is her son being lonely. “Danny is never hurting for female attention, trust me.” She’s actually tougher on prospective gf’s than I am. But I guess that’s what mom’s do.
In fact, a divorced woman, you’d think she’s be gunning for me to get married. But alas, my mom is also a red pill woman and is well aware of the pitfalls to me getting married. And she’s accepted the fact that I just don’t want to do it. However, always the optimist, she still says I’ll end up married. Maybe, but certainly no time soon.
Back to my friend- I explained to her that her mother’s rationale is the very reason I’m avoiding marriage. And there are a LOT more guys following the same path. She seemed to stop and consider what I was suggesting as a legitimate choice. “I’ve never considered it could be a risk for a guy to get married.” Yeah, I’ve heard this one before….HUNDREDS of times.
“Girl, you have the luxury of not having to think about it. If we got divorced you’d get as much as you wanted in the settlement. Fuck that.”
I wish there were more to the story, but that’s really all that happened. Lol.
