Distracted: Dating Not High Priority

Just wanted to update all those who've sent me emails etc over the past few weeks. If I've responded or started a conversation then I am still interested but been busy with other priorities with work/life etc. If I haven't, then I'm not interested and no offense you probably won't get a response.

But I did get a 'thought' provoking email from a guy who asked me to be a 'kept' woman -- I've got to say it takes all kinds to make the world go around. And I wasn't offended, just surprised he would approach me after reading my profile where it is clear who I am -- but it makes good fodder for blog posts.

He even had the audacity to suggest moving to another state to be 'kept', primary reason he needs someone to live in his house while he travels. (rolling on the floor laughing) Sigh, well I'd like to have someone watch my house while I'm away too --- but I think it would just be cheaper to get an alarm system.

I responded by saying, "I do well keeping myself all on my own."

What is it with guys? It seems they think by apologizing upfront when sending these kinds of emails it some how excuses their rudeness. I'm not easily offended but I couldn't let this go without responding, "I'm not offended just amazed there are still guys out there with your type of attitude. If you have trouble with security you might consider getting a dog or at least put in more security measures."

What this shows me though is there are still men out there harboring the same old conventional male/female roles and it is such an antiquated concept I can't believe someone who is '35' according to his profile would even suggest such a thing, but then again, he's from Texas so maybe this has something to do with it. (no offense to Texas guys but it seems men from the South who are a bit older or even younger have a weird concept of the relationship roles).

Anyway, it sounds like this guy is stuck in the 50's and I think I've made it clear from my posts and my profile I'm an 'independent' person -- who's never been kept for or by anyone or anything. Who has a life, a business, and my own stuff, including a home and wouldn't entertain the idea of 'shacking' up.

But whats funny, is there are women out there who want to be kept -- I'm just not one of them.

Sorry -- I'll get off my soap box -- guess I'm just in one of those moods.


P.S. Update -- got a response -- made me smile. Of course the guy didn't have any class and took it all to heart. He also suggested, "Don't be pissed off, and hate the playa biatch, hate the GAME, because realistically you know dis is true." Hmm, looks like he's been listening to too many songs lately -- in addition if you saw the pictures in this guys profile you could hardly consider him a "player" -- and of course he had to insult me in an effort to make himself feel/look better even though I didn't attack him on a personal level at all when responding to his absurb proposal. As I said before, makes good fodder for my blog!

Haha, don't hold back. Give him hell, he deserves it! Guys like him are the ones that give the rest of us a bad name...
