That is a trait of a real woman of valor, that she is capable of making a man a better man.

verygreeneyez,

Thank you for a most interesting story. I will admit that only those who have withstood the absence of an ideal mate that they foolishly dismissed could have a remote possibility of understanding the degree of regret. May everyone possess the inherent wisdom not to make such an unfortunate decision.

Sparks,

Perfectly understandable that viewing an ex's profile would stir up deep seated emotions and I appreciate your participation here. Most of the difficulty in attempting to achieve an answer to my question is that it is very difficult to be objective when one heart is in the way. Still I must ask if the picture and description of your ex was someone you would want to get to know if you never knew her.

Clambreath,

Here's the story. I discovered an ex's profile on another dating site almost five years ago. As I stated in a prior post which went beyond your comprehension or attention span, she is undoubtedly married because she was engaged four years ago. The incitations with your disruptive posts do not warrant any more explanations about this topic. The next time a pair of your neurons fire simultaneously and you have the urge to grace the civilized with your intellectual prowess and clever wit, click to another forum topic and spray your mark on a more charitable audience.

Path,

Thanks for your personal story. Think back to when you saw her pictures and/or profile won eHarmony and FaceBook. Imagine that you never knew her previously. Would you have been intrigued enough by what you saw or read to determine that you would be interested in her?

Minako79,

The vast majority of contributors to this forum question seemed to be relieved that the relationship ended. I realize I am in the minority here. There are few that have experienced the unique loss and regret associated with letting an exceptional one go. Thank you for your post and your candor.

Married, as in what? Right on with your suggestion to STOP STALKING! Get over it! STOP crying in your beer. The thing so many people fails to accept is that very few people are on these sites are here to meet a keeper. Once you been there done that, immediately delete his/her phone number in your cellie. They have, now it's on to new victims. Everyone re-invents theirself after each breakup. How often I see profiles start out with one picture, then BAM, here come the cleavage shots, the web cam. They quickly discovered how to become a stay at home prositute. These people are pros. Free dinners, free trips, etc. OH! how quickly they learned. There was once a time a lady would have to dress up, go out to a dance maybe to meet a guy. NOT today. MARRIED, get real.

Path,

Thank you again. You have squarely hit on what I was looking for. You have the benefit of a very unique and invaluable experience. Based on that insight, what in your view is the biggest disadvantage with meeting a person based on their on-line profile vs. the old fashioned way of face to face?

Joe,

I did not understand the point you attempted to get across but I'll defend to the death your right to confuse me. The only concession that I will make in my initial forum post is that the word "married" may be mere semantic. Perhaps it should have read, "Ever see an ex on a dating site that you know you should have stayed with?"

vrb1955,

OK. Really has nothing to do with this forum topic but you may want to contribute to an entry regarding dating ethics. Perhaps his wife's untimely loss was a very, very recent one.
