Am I being selfish or am i right to feel this way?Page 5 of 5    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
"why so many selfish people these days?"

hmm, I detect a trend this morning. We might trace selfishness back to the ME generation, and those within it raising kids to become Yuppies, and those kids teaching their kids, and so on the ripples go thru the generations. I remember growing up in the 1980's listening to parents talk about how "my kid's going to have all the toys my old man couldn't afford" and thinking, "you know why you have your money now? b/c you didn't have it growing up".

Well, I wonder how the poster faired in life since this was a thread from March 2012 :)

So, there IS at least one downside to no mods

Hmmm....still worth it to have no mods IMO

Old thread with OP long gone, but anyway, a selfish man thing, you've got to be kidding. He was open about what he wants in a relationship, and she lied, so I guess typical lying woman thing, right. This has nothing what-so-ever to do with now-a-days or your age or anything other than two people meeting and one of them lying out their kazoo and you needing to bash men. Boring

i want to go for a 6 hour walk through the streets of toronto and she is coming up with excuses not to do it 9 she had done short jaunts in the past then complained of being in pain).

Well, most people aren't going to be up for doing that, anyway. IF one really looks forward to something close to that...

She had a slight limp when I met her and she told me it was nothing serious. Over the last few months it became apparent it was serious enough to keep her from long walks, absolutely no hikes on uneven terrain, can't do the climbing. Hip and knee issues, surgeries, physio, painkillers. Dr House without the cane.

... then yeah, this is an issue looking ahead. Is it a Deal Breaker in and of itself? Not necessarily. And it's not any more "selfish" than wanting someone who's of a certain look, compatibility, etc. It's just Emotionally taken as a "cheap shot" because it's something negative upon Herself too that she can't really do anything about -- when it's really not a cheap shot. My bet is, the relationship was "OK", as the "otherwise we get along" -- kind of tells the tale. I think if OP was dating a Very compatible, Real pretty gal who had a slight limp and had to tend to it over time, he wouldn't see it as a deal-breaker -- just one of the trade-ins... and him liking the physical activity being more like going out with guys to the sports bar.
