Cougar dating free
His easygoing and carefree personality was the polar opposite of my ex. It seemed like these sites were almost to set me up for a disaster.
The questions were surface-level (like, do you prefer romantic comedies or horror movies?
He'd laid all his cards on the table, and I was either in or out.
Oddly enough, he never asked if I had children and I don't remember ever bringing mine up.
I existed to make dinner for the kids and provide an open ear when he needed to vent.
After 15 years — six of which involved intensive marriage counseling — I finally decided to walk away.
Perhaps it was my Roman Catholic background that shaped my views on relationships and love, but I used to think the sugar-daddy-sugar baby dynamic was silly and taboo.
I learned that he had two children and was separated, largely because he and his wife weren't intimate enough. He was looking for someone who was sexy, confident and stable, which he wasn't finding by dating younger women. After my past experience with the 29-year-old, I was worried that he might not be on my maturity level.
But the way he spoke about his career and what he wanted out of our arrangement told me there were no nasty tricks up his sleeve.
