This bit of humor from the Onion is priceless: http://www.theonion.com/articles/girlfriend-changes-man-into-someone-shes-not-inter,1507/?ref=auto
It is priceless because it is so true. The piece details how a woman turns her one time rocker boyfriend, someone who was mysterious and aloof and dangerous, into a soft herb subject to her every whim.
The lesson: a man needs to remain a man, be himself, and not let a woman change him into something he is not. Once she changes him to what she thinks is her desirable mate, she will loose interest in him. Pussy has great power over men and once they are getting it, they will often go to great lengths to keep it; but a man should never sacrifice his own self in the pursuit of maintaining the pussy status quo.
The true alpha always remain unconquerable, aloof and more interested in fulfilling his own ambitions than succumbing to the feminine dictates of women. He must be prepared to walk away when he has to make a choice between the white picket fence and his own ambitions of glory. This is what makes women wet: the man they cannot tame.

True dat! That’s probably the best upside to divorcing Duh Wifely Unit, i.e. once you ditch (or more likely, get EPL’d by) a wimminz you’ve gone “all in” on–and survive, yes you did–every breakup after that is relatively stress-free!
Plus there’s your “on deck” gals, your “spinning plates”, your online FwBs, the still-married EPL skank-ho’s from the mega condo complex down the street, etc., i.e. all those rational backup plans married herbs don’t have. 😀
Yup, I totally did that. As a verse in one of my favourite songs, ‘Room with a view’ by Tina Dico, goes:
‘I recall you took me swimming
The sea was dark and cold
You’d been there many times before
With many different girls, I’d been told
But what’s a man without a past
We love him for his lies
And then we try to break him down to make it last
‘Til they come true
Thank God for this beautiful view’
And Lord knows, I’ll never do it again. Or rather, the ones who -can- be changed, isn’t gonna hold my interest.

“i.e. all those rational backup plans married herbs don’t have.” Yes, it is always good to have a backup plan!

Haha…it is always good to hear your experiences on these matters!
I can’t believe I’ve been going for years without knowing that.
