Don't let Mr Wrong ruin you for Mr Right


Don't let Mr Wrong ruin you for Mr Right
After a whirlwind 19 day first date, I thought I'd met Mr Right.

I guess the moral of the story is this. I am writing from a fantastic holiday with my kids. We are definitely of the realisation we are better off with this loser out of our lives. But I want to ensure it doesn't make me be any less trusting of the decent guys out there. I have some lovely men in my life now, and hope that meeting this idiot doesn't make me wary or prevent me from giving the right guy a chance. 

This is a man who's 40, never been married, never had kids and probably won't. I'm pretty sure he's never even had a serious relationship. He just has a pattern of using women.

There are definitely bad guys out there who enjoy hurting people, and don't care about the consequences of their actions, just be wary and listen to your friends and family. If they get a strong feeling about someone, you should just keep an open mind that they may in fact be right! And if it's too fast and too good to be true, sometimes, it is.

Turns out he was and is seeing this new woman. I tried to make contact and warn her, but it seems to have fallen on deaf ears, for now. I'm sure I'll be hearing from her in about 3 months!..

Meanwhile. My career is thriving again, I have amazing kids, a fantastic group of friends who love me to death, lovely interested men and looking at this fabulous view from the hotel right now. Enjoy working at your shop today Grant!
