My worst habit is probably my poor eating choices. Don't get me wrong, I don't overindulge or eat too much, I'm a marathon runner and train like crazy all the time, I'm super thin, lean and fit, don't drink alcohol, etc...but, I eat crap lol. Waaaay too many chips and sweets, very little veggie's and fruit, not enough water, take zero vitamins and so on. Basically I rely on my training and have convinced myself that's good enough to keep me healthy instead of INCLUDING a proper nutrition diet to go with it. I know it's wrong yet I don't seem to care. Bad policy/poor habit.

That works while you are young. But, just plan on improving your eating habbits.

I didn't realise this until yesterday when I dropped my sister to the airport, my worst habit is speeding, she was praying and almost in tears because I was driving so fast.

In the South East of England most of the speed cameras seem to have been removed and everyone knows where the few remaining ones are, we used to have mobile camera vans but I think most local authorities' can no longer afford them. It's like the bloody wild west on our roads now.

I view every woman as a potential partner and I hate that I do that because it stops me from building genuine friendships. And despite the fact that I have my own vetting process for filtering the women I don't like, I still feel offended when I'm rejected, as if they weren't allowed to have standards. It is ridiculous and exhausting and I want to stop.

That’s funny because some of the women are doing the exact same thing. Is this filtering like a checklist you go through. Nice eyes, nice ass,...check check
Funny, sweet....check check.
I’ve known females like these. They are never in long term relationships. Maybe I don’t understand what you want to stop but gut reaction is if you are making a checklist, I’d stop that for sure. You are only hurting yourself by ‘filtering’. Sometimes we don’t know what’s best for us. It seems simple to me.

Thanks for your reply. It's not a checklist. The filters are actually the lesser of the problem. I believe the most important quality in a partner is their ability to recover from an argument with greater understanding and respect. After that, the next most important qualities are whether you feel attracted and whether they make an effort to participate in your interests. Everything else is noise. Humor will develop naturally as we get to know each other.

The problem, to me, is that I can't seem to meet a woman and view her as strictly a friend. It's like, if she's attractive to me and we get along, why shouldn't we date? And maybe that doesn't sound bad in writing, but in my experience, it has kept me with few female friends because why would you want to hang out with someone you rejected?

I’ve actually had a male friend who wanted more than a friendship and when I said I want interested it was him that took a little time to come around to the idea of just friends. I didn’t reject him as a person I just wasn’t interested in a romantic relationship. Then I’ve been on the other side where I was totally into a guy who just wanted to be friends. We worked it out. Maybe you are just thinking too deeply about it. Besides, I don’t know what’s like to be you in your situation. I’m 43, a woman, haven’t dated in 10 years, and still legally married to my husband who is currently married to someone else. Ignore me.

You're probably right. I'm known for overthinking things. Do you want to share about your marriage situation?

No dear. Thank you though. It’s just not really anything else to it other than what I already mentioned. I can admit that until I got on here I had not realized that there were so many young and older men that thought so much about relationships. It’s been an eye opener for me.
