I've never regretted any man I've dated. I think that is spot on advice to extend a helpful attitude beyond the pretty girls.

I make fun of myself for writing paragraphs on here, but the truth is, most guys will just see a photo of a woman they think is interesting and type out. "What is up?" Katie later said that I was the first guy that typed back a paragraph or two...I had lambs and was interesting and could share.

But I have three children--so something must work.
My first marriage ended with me running away, because there was no affection--it had become a business. My second relationship, which produced my third child, is sick and weird, I'm sorry to say. We stay together out of obligation to the baby, while we have pretty much no affection for each other. It's not a romantic relationship in any way, and it would have obliterated three years ago if it weren't for the existence of our son.
She does not like farming, or land, or animals or plants, or being outside--not in any weather. I do not like consumerism, cell phones or television. But I did not have enough sense to make these decisions back then: I chose the sex. It was an easy choice. While I regret the state of my relationship, and ever unsure if it will come crashing down today, or tomorrow, or what--I love my children so much.
I want to give them the best experience in life that I can--and that means sacrificing my own romantic love. In the end, I got much the same situation that I ran from in my first one. But I stay the course because it's the right thing to do.
I am a product of divorced parents. I worry terribly that my first two children will surely follow my example, which I have identified for them as normal with my actions. I am trying not to let this be true for my baby son as well.

Let's hear it ladies. And let's break it down according to age. If a guy is 25 and he post some photos showing that he's in good shape, is that a negative?
Now suppose that he's 54 like I am, where much of the competition are flabby guys with man boobs. If I were still looking, would it work to my advantage, to display the results of my efforts, if I gave a little blurb explaining just how much time I put into it.
Things every young guy should know.
