Dating an engaged woman
A couple weeks back, I shared the pros and cons to getting engaged to a guy who was engaged before.And reader mn48225 (and a few others) wondered if a gal's previous engagement or marriage would deter a dude from proposing.
Because of its neuron-chemical basis, it's tenacious, progressive and destructive in nature. Beautiful women who get a fair amount of attention get full of themselves, he says. When I asked him why he loves me, he said that he loves my drive and my passion, Young says.It'd make me wonder what else I'd find out."And Craig also had a caveat to his willingness to propose: "She'd have to be over the guy she was engaged or married to."Tommy definitely didn't think a past engagement or marriage was a reason not to propose."It wouldn't matter to me because I was married six years ago! Are you surprised that the guys didn't seem to mind proposing to a woman who'd been engaged or married previously?If we asked that same opinionated group of women how many of them have ever dated a married, engaged, or otherwise involved man, I wonder what percentage would raise their hands.In one of his old standup routines, Chris Rock said it best – “Men are as faithful as their options.” For every man who cheats, there is a woman who is cheating with him. If the tendency to cheat is a character flaw, then isn’t it equally wrong to participate?Obviously, men aren’t always forthcoming about their status.

I’ve even initiated the diatribe – especially when I've felt that I had been done wrong in a relationship.
On the whole he's a fantastic person, but I'm wondering whether his porn addiction is a red flag.
Do you think we should move forward in our relationship? The addiction is based on neurochemical changes that occur in the brain as a result of prolonged exposure to stimulating sexual imagery.
Should I continue a relationship with a man who seems to have a real problem with obscene and sexually explicit material?
