Our group of ladies recently agreed on the following: BEWARE LADIES: Beware of the catch and release lover; He will reel u in with false hope and empty promises only to snag your heart then throw you back when he is done using you. Lets let these type of men know we are not going to be used!!!

Ladies,

 Stop looking for a Knight in shining armor . Pick up a tab once in a while , don't expect to be rescued from the life you've made for yourself. Learn to like yourself and don't look to a man to validate you . You learn most of what you need in life in kindergarten : take turns , don't lie , be a friend, share, and most importantly : People are gonna do what they do and there is very little you can do to change that .

Not all "quicky" marriages fail.  I met my late husband in Mar. of '99 on a dating site.  On April Fools Day, I flew across the country to meet him.  I stayed with him and his family and met his large family all in 10 days.  I left with an engagement ring on my hand.  The following month, which was May...he and his brother drove across the country and we were married.  We packed what I was bringing....we worked together and were together 24-7 for nearly the entire of our 13 1/2 year marriage, supremely happy.  We were more "in love" and loved each other more as time passed to the end of his life.  The happiest 13 1/2 years of our lives.  We were both widowed, I had also been divorced.  We both had lost our only children.  We knew what we wanted and didn't want and at our age we all should know what we will and will not tolerate and what we want and don't want in our lives.  Please note we emailed and called each day but on the second time we saw each other we were married.  Neither of us had any regrets that we didn't take longer to be married....Naturally, that doesn't work for everyone....WHAT IS VERY IMPORTANT IS THAT WE REMEMBER THERE IS NO TWO RELATIONSHIPS THAT ARE ALIKE, BUT WE DO KNOW WHAT WE WANT AND DON'T WANT BY 50.  I'M 65 AND ALTHOUGH I MAY NEVER FIND THE SAME KIND OF RELATIONSHIP.......I still know what I like and don't like even more clearly now and know that it is my attitude that will allow me to find a man who I will not have to compare to my late husband, but will be a man who will find happiness along with me...because that's what we want.  Age and experience are in our favor in finding a mate.  And you don't have to kiss a lot of frogs anymore....that was what we have learned many years ago!  The greatest "battle" is getting passed the pain of the past, so our attitude is open to a new and fulfilling relationship.

I find that if they come off as being very interested and all lovey dovey when they don't really know you yet is RED FLAG. They tell you a long story and then they tell you they are out of the country doing some kind of work but need a reason to come back here! They don't have correct spelling or English grammar and their pictures are too good to be true. Then they feed you sob stories about how they lost their wives and are taking care of their children by themselves... I just let them go on and I am already on to them. Don't give out any information to them because they will ask for very personal information and want to have your outside email and then they have so many questions that you can't help but ask yourself, is this an application for a date???? Go by your gut feelings also, it really helps and I have found out about 10 scammers on other dating sites just by following what I have written. Be careful and especially when they are doing nothing but emailing you and after 2 weeks they are not trying to meet with you but are so into you, be suspicious.... They are scammers....

how long ago has that been , since you met your late husband. I hear Match.com is the worst for scam artist and married men. I dont know. I think and of course I dont have any data to back it up with that this matching sites, has become one of the latest and easiest ways for scammers to rip women off with.

I dont know. i think retaliation does a lot of good. It gets rid of a lot of pent up emotions. Why lay down and take it? Havent you done enough of that?

What we should really be aware of is the scam artists that are out there, starting with Happy Feet who goes by the name of Chris Cullop,  they write you, they claim to love you then they ask you for Money.

Others to be aware of on this website are ANTLO2012 from Europe  uses Antonio Lopez

Also WCHRIS 272 from Australia.

I think I just had an experience as the one described.  You get had then.... what?  Retaliation seems futile and childish.  It would appear these types may  not have an intention of this sort initially however, do not have any qualms about using it.  I think that's what happened.  All I know is it hurts plenty.

That's why it's important to take your time. I met my late husband on a dating line. We communicated for 6 months before we met. When we met we already knew so much about each other it was a good experience we were together for 13 years and married for 13 years before he passes. He my est friend. You neetgrat guys if you really take your time first. Before him I met men too soon and oat were a disaster.
