Why Divorced Men Are Best to Date (and Marry)

He has been broken down! Divorced men understand what it's like to be in a committed relationship within which there are compromises and accommodations. His resistance has already been broken down by another woman so that you don't have to endure the push back yourself.

He uses his words. Divorced men tend to be better communicators. There is a decent chance that he went to therapy during his marriage, if not after, and he has become fairly proficient at communicating needs and feelings more clearly.

He's been broken in! Another thing about divorced men that you might not want to think about but will happily benefit from? They just "get" you. That's because they've been with more women, or at least one woman for an extended period of time, and dealt with more attitudes, moods, issues, and emotions. With experience often comes understanding. In other words, he has already been broken in.

I’m never getting divorced again.

Every 5 years, I’m just going to find a woman I hate, and buy her a house.

How condescending.

I take it this was written by some feminist? I thought they didn’t need marriage or relationships.

Here’s something for these women to think about.

He’s been “broken in” they say. He’s “been with” various women, understands ins and outs of relationships, etc.

Considering all of that, suppose he is always comparing YOU to all of these other women, and you don’t stack up??? How does that aspect of things make you feel?

What if his having been with various women conditions him to think that there will always be plenty of fish in the sea, and conditioned him to bail out on YOU at the first sign of trouble or issues to work through????

What if his divorce has made him gun shy about any serious commitment or marriage ever again?

Satan will be ice-skating to work before I welcome the thought of getting married again.

And within that group of divorced persons of both sexes are those lacking the emotional stability to ever maintain a relationship.

I wonder how well these liberal women would take constant contact with the woman that “broke in” the man in question.

I had some teens spend time with me yesterday because their mom was going through a nasty break-up. I'm everybody's emergency baby-sitter.

When they got in my truck, I asked the question: "Is everybody clear on why I live alone?"

The teens certainly saw the lack of drama/stress of my life as a benefit.

I suppose the flip side is that a divorced woman is good to date because .... she understands just how fierce a beating she will get if she disobeys her man. She’s already learned how to behave.

Women are a lot more trouble than men. One can understand why the younger generation of men thinks it’s not worth the bother. They’ve observed acquaintances let their wives make them into their own image, and then dump them because they are incompatable.!

The author is a self-described “dating coach” and “flirting expert” who wears too much makeup. The fact that her website is called “screwingtherules.com” is in itself TMI about her.

The Husband Store
________________________________________
A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City , where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE!
There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights.
The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor,
but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.
On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs

She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

‘That’s nice,’ she thinks, ‘but I want more.’

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

‘Wow,’ she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.

She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

‘Oh, mercy me!’ she exclaims, ‘I can hardly stand it!’

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

Divorce rate about 50% for first marriages. For previously divorced people, remarriage divorces are at about 75%.
