It wasn't so much the question as the way he asked it. It pissed me off!
One of my online dating....encounters....awhile back asked me this question. I was offended. Granted, it's a fair question but I felt terrible when asked it. As someone at work who frequently visits dating sites said, "What did he want? A woman who had been divorced five times?" I wondered that one myself!
I think I just didn't like the tone. Keep in mind, said man was divorced a long time ago and hadn't found anyone new. Irony? Hypocrisy?
I've been taking a break from online dating to actually lose a certain amount of weight and handle some stuff. I have a goal set where I'd like to get back into things.
I know though that this question will come up again in some way, shape, or form as I date. (Hopefully more politely...) For the record, I've been asked it before in other ways and have always answered that I didn't feel God showed me the right one yet. (Very true. I have a story about this that I'll tell at a later date. Also, having a brain tumor makes you not so fun to be in a relationship with if you aren't properly treated. And not like I want to admit that to someone when I first meet them!)
I've always felt okay with my answer-until I met "Mr. (NOT) Wonderful." Is there something else I should say? (Like find a divorced woman if you feel the need to ask this question? Haha) I'm just really not sure.
What do you all think? Advice/comments please.
