    For all the guys in this thread, if you go on a date with a female and they offer to sleep with you on the first date, we all know you would not turn it down! :p

    Conversation came up at work the other week and I was quite surprised, men calling women who sleep around mattress backs and they wouldn’t be with their current partners if they’d slept with anywhere near the same amount of people they had. The classic master key and lock line came up as well :D

    It’s a double standard of sorts but I doubt one that will go away for most normal people, men and women are just different and look for different aspects when selecting a mate.

    It’s very easy for a woman to get sex if that’s all they’re after compared to a man, almost any of them could go out every night and sleep with someone new if they chose. Not many men could say the same.

    I think most men have the view of its fine to shag the town bike but a very different thing to commit to them long term.

    Oh yeah totally. If you're a girl and have zero standards you could literally get sex every time you are out.
    But may as well charge if you you are like that.

    Haha so true, I know I never said no if I was attracted to them. All it did is change my expectations.

    Your sole basis of that is because they waited with you? Women are more inclined to take things slowly with Men they want a relationship with so he doesn't think they're easy or whatever, it doesn't mean they haven't slept with a lot of Men on nights out or on first dates. Jesus how naive can people be.

    Walked out in the middle of the night bags packed to a devastated fiancee. Not sure what I'm feeling, regret, numb, has this really happened. Not gonna sleep not sure if I've been a total idiot. She's texting me now saying she still loves me and wants me back.

    Merry Christmas.

    If any of your are about I would appreciate some wisdom right now.

    See how it goes over Christmas.
    If it doesn't work out then fair enough. If she does love you it's worth a shot and even if she doesn't (reciprocal of course) you've at least mitigated what I imagine as being the worst time of year to break up.

    I was watching a youtube video of a guy I have followed for years recently. He's married now and happily so. But he told the story of an early relationship where he was engaged. Most of his mates congratulated him without much thought because it was the done thing. But one of his female friends simply asked "Aren't engaged people supposed to be happy?". He realised he wasn't and broke it off immediately.

    Deep down are you happy about the engagement or happy about breaking it off?

    Things only have a chance of changing if both parties really REALLY want to change.
    If one is doing it only when the threat to leave is made it isnt going to work.

    Yes of course. But only if you're sober and won't regret it in the morning.

    I'm sober, don't drink but I think I'll keep it to myself and sleep on the issues.

    She's still texting me might see her for an hour away from the house tomorrow.

    I don't mean to be a negative Nancy/pedant, but if any of you need to change then it's all ready over.
    I'd be more open to compromising differences as to change. If that makes any sense?

    Good luck. We're here if needed (I'll probably be going to bed in 30 mins).
