It always the same: some lady meets me and is instantly repulsed by my demeanor and how I come across on the first impression. Then, after a few days, she takes an interest. Eventually we get to talking and she finds out I have depth, and the ability to hold down a job.
This happened twice this year. The first time I was tempted because, frankly, I get lonely, and she was hot.
The second time is ongoing and oh-hell-no I'm not touching that.
Aside from my wish for my marriage to eventually work out, I attract the wrong women. They have clinical emotional problems, criminal histories, drug use, they seek abusive men....I want no part of that.
I PM'd Felicity regarding a specific girl and she rightfully pointed out that as I was still wearing my ring then, this woman knew I was married and didn't care. This meant she obviously didn't value boundaries like marriage and wouldn't think much of cheating. Also, according to the rules I took my vows under, separation and estrangement do not afford me the freedom to date. I am as restricted as ever.
So, I use World of Warcraft as my distraction
And yes I've told a couple girls on occasion that I couldn't hang out with them because I was scheduled to raid that night
