Exchanging Mr. Right for Mr. Good EnoughPage 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I believe the resaon why I never married or even sparsely dated in my younger years (when I was better looking, had more stable & better paying employment, in a bit better shape, had more hair ect) is that I never fell into the catagory of Mr. 'Good Enough'... thus none of you women had 'settled' for me.... kudos to you?

Obvious though I couldn't had been worse than what really was out there as reason that you are here & these sites are so popular now.

^^^^^^^^^^^Let's dissect this dichotomy, shall we? On one hand you have those that seem content to mostly hide behind the computer screen complaining about the lack of substance from the forums. On the other you have the social butterflies who get out and meet the other fish swimming in the pond. Still yet, there are those that sign up to just about every event never having the intention of going and will come back here and say the forums are dead.

It is more than who starts the threads, interesting how even the popular members here stopped writing as the topics were not discussed.


The author of this post has had many threads wither away due to lack of interest, and I hear from her loyal friends that her posts are interesting.

When I sign up I sign up to go, just the same i have many frineds that invite me out, I will visit with a friend before I attend a POF event everytime.

Yes the forums are dead.

As for the topic i think the vast majority of fish that attend the parties show that many people look for mr. /Mrs. Right over good enough.

Similar to the topic..............I have also found many people who have gotten into a relationship with Mr/Mrs Right and have decided that Right was not good enough and continued looking for greener grass on the other side - instead of working on the original "right" relationship - and basically, having their cake and eating it too.

We'll stop right there.....then right was not right?

Didn't you do that a few times TJ or am I thinking of someone else?

You're such a stinker Foxy!!!

Actually yes I did and I got out of there very quickly - but then again, I wasn't the one looking for the greener grass tho - my competition was either ex-wives, the guy's girlfriend-Ms. Al-ki-hal, or their "future" girlfriend.

Aww TJ, Didn't like the color of the bike?

I remember Mr. Al-ki-hal being my competition..... one of the most interesting 8 weeks I had in a long time. I still am on speaking terms with most all of my formers, so is that a bad thing?

^^^Not at all a bad thing - it's good to be able to forgive and go forward - even remaining friends with formers.

I just heard about "Marry Him: The Case for Settling for Mr. Good Enough" by Lori Gottlieb on the John Tesh radio program this morning. What came to mind was the adage "there's no use striving for perfection in a non-perfect world".
