    It is just life I guess people do what seemed right at the time.

    I often wonder how oblivious or not the partner is in those cases when someone reaches that point in their life where the conviction has gone and they realise the future of their current path isn't where they want to be, etc. despite most social nuances being lost to me I seem to be highly attune to the little signs when someone's relationship has got to that stage that no one else seems to see.

    I even had to go and watch the new Star Wars on my own yesterday - nobody loves me.
    Funny thing is I'll go out tonight and I'll be surrounded by people who will want to talk to me.

    I'm in that age bracket and now i'm thinking what the hell did I do most of my life has gone, When I met her she was 18 and I was 22. Something else I learnt is never to sleep with anyone when you still haven't got over the last person.

    I never did. I probably missed out on a lot of fun, but the fear of pregnancy and being trapped was the more powerful emotion!

    Being trapped (not just by young pregnancy) is one of my biggest fears. And still the main reason I don't want kids

    Its annoying. I'm happy to jump out a plane and do a sky dive, but sleeping with someone random? Nope. But the risk of life changing event is much more likely with the latter. Damn analytical brain!
    Like I have a constant tug of war with heart and head!

    I have been single since April and not a Chance in hell I'm going to repeat what I did when I was 22.

    I have a very small group of people. I don't have "lads night out" or anything like that and never have done. It's usually go for a pint with one friend or go to a gig with another, etc.

    Yup I can relate to this thread & that Ceo fella & his video.
    Business owner here. Lots of staff & building peeps, plumbers, leccy's who are all self employed & in a similar position that I work with & have done for many years.

    Although I have a crack with them in my work time I purposely keep a professional distance. A small business owner could be lonely.

    Luckily I hate socialising out of work, detest crowds, so I'm a pig in muck on my own.:)
    Kids & married btw.

    Hmmm. Sometimes you meet someone who you just share great sexual attraction with and shagging seems the obvious thing to do.

    This is most hard when already in a relationship ofc, but the main reason cheating happens.

    I did get it's you and me and our child or its just you and your mates. I did start to cut down on most of my mates then it came down to me and her and my daughter, I didn't understand at the time why she said that but it was for the best my lifestyle wasn't a healthy legal one.:( to many partys etc... But if I was to go find my old mates even after 18 years they would be supportive. I have spoke to one old friend even though he has kids he has put me off him because he thinks our lifestyle was good and want's to tell he kids to go and do it. It may of been fun at the time but no way would I want my daughter to follow in my footsteps.

    A good few years ago now a good friend of mine started dating a lass who on the surface seemed great, she then started pulling similar stunts. When ever I appeared to visit him she was fine when we were all in the room together but would make her feelings known the moment he left the room. Turned out she was doing the same with his other friends, we all made a point of regularly turning up out of the blue (usually with a bottle of something) and outstaying our welcome whilst getting him wasted :D
