Don’t even try these on us
You know the scenario: after about six dates, a guy gets bored or totally afraid of any kind of commitment. Perhaps the woman isn’t “putting out” or he thinks a younger, blonder, hotter, woman would find him sexy and mature. He had heard, ‘Younger women dig older guys.” Cool. So, the guy decides to “Break up” using the oldest lies in the book.
Don’t even think about telling a woman any of these five egregious lies:
- Babe, you’re just too good for me. I’m going to set you free.
- My old girlfriend called and she wants to get back together.
- I’m not feeling the magic anymore. We gave it three weeks. I’m moving on.
- Hon, it’s nothing personal. I just need some space.
- I’m going to lay off dating for a while.
Really? That’s all you got?
Pray tell, what thoughts are ricocheting through the mind of a woman hearing these heinous lies? “Oh, whatta schmuck.” “Can’t wait to tell the girls about this dud.” “Ta-ta Mr. Hair Club for Men.”
A Classic Scenario: The Playboy in a Prius
Lothario: He is 50+, recently divorced. Brand new to online dating – he views it as a potential “Booty Buffet.” He wants to make up for lost time – with as many women as possible. He remembers himself as a “10” (a long, long, time ago.) When he looks in the mirror he doesn’t see the saggy, baggy body, thinning hair, the dated wardrobe. He has heard incredible stories about online dating- how women are lining up- the rules have changed- it’s a par-tay every night.
FACT: Younger women are looking for younger men. A few women at the bar have compared him to their fathers. Not only is the not getting “any”- younger women will allow him to buy them a drink – or drinks for all their friends – and then disappear- with the younger, hipper, cool dudes in the cool GQ outfit. Reality check.
So, gentlemen take a minute, wrestle with the concept of integrity and learn the truth will set you free.
Best Advice: Date your decade, dude.
