Members of this site: Warning of spam e-mail


#1

I got one of those two. I reported it as spam and blocked the sender. I assume that as long as someone has a log in for any forum they can get an e-mail address from the profiles. Always watch what you open in e-mails and especially be wary of anyone asking for investment or finacial funding or information.
Thanks for the heads up[:)]

Yeah, I got one too. I appreciate the Princess’ offer, but the last “princess” I met who supposedly had money ended up becoming my ex wife and has been “sponging” off me since.

" fool me once, shame on you…
fool me twice, shame on me…"

hawhman:

If it had been a Prince sending it, I may have replied…LOL just kidding.
I understand about having someone sponge off of you. I feel as if I have been the sole bread winner and baker since I met my husband. I thought that things would change but of course they never did. It would get better a short time, but the continue in the same old routine. I know that deep down inside he can be a good responsible, kind and loving man, but I just couldn’t wait for him to grown up.

Does it get better?

The only way it gets better is when the situation or your attitude changes. You can’t continue to do the same thing and expect different results every time. My ex was the same way. He would do something that and I would get angry, we would spend a couple weeks not talking or with lots of tension between us and he would “straighten up”. Then after a while, slowly it would go back to the way it was before. I realized afterward that it was partly my. After all, I did let him get away with it. I allowed it, and I adapted to it. I knew in my heart also, that my ex could be a loving and responsible adult and a good person, but I think now that that is just what I wanted him to be. That maybe he wasn’t capable of that at all. I stayed in the situation and made myself believe that he would eventually grow up and our relationship would change. HAHA! Jokes on me. I never realized that I should demand more from myself and my standards and not tolorate anything less. We would never have stayed together as long as we did had it not been for me adapting. I had to quit giving in and lowering my morals and goals for our relationship to realize that IT wasn’t going to change, but that I had to change to survive.

Bad news for ya patricia1. My ex is in her 40’s now. Mom says that a woman won’t change her ways at that age. Unless I can get Ted Kennedy to take my ex on a date (preferrably near water) I have no choice but to wait this out for the next 9 years. Some people will never change because they’re so wrapped up in themselves, they become oblivious to everything around them. Everything sacred to me was taken away, my children, my good name, my honor, and my dignity. Now, being left with nothing the only advice I can give is that I’ve found three things that help: 1. Sarcasm: It’s selfish, but it’s insulting to the other person, plus it shows you’re smarter than they are. 2. Humor: No one can take away your laugh or your sense of humor, sometimes the “stupider”, the better. As long as you think it’s funny it doesn’t matter if anyone else gets it. 3. Karma: It exhists, and it bites some deserving person in the @$$ everyday. Eventually everyone gets what’s coming to them when they least expect it.

Sorry to hear that some people have no principals and would use this forum for their own purposes. Thank you.
