Anyone who has known me for a while and knows anything about my romantic associations with men will agree with me when I say, this fits them all. ERRORS IN JUDGEMENT! My judgement.
I have thought over the years, “Oh, this man is perfect!” And unfortunately, they all, yes, they all have been errors in judgement. They have disappointed me; they have hurt me, either physically or mentally. And yes, they have even left me for someone else.
I seem to attract men. I do not know why, but I do. Unfortunately, the ones who want a romantic friendship, all, and I mean all, have fit this description. I once said that you could line up all the good men in the world and include one bad one, and I would pick that bad one. It is a gift – one I really do not want.
So, my friends, now that I am older (70 to be exact) and have many, many years of dating and romantic experiences, I have at least recognized this fault of mine. I will keep these errors in judgement at bay. Being hurt now takes a while to get over. It happened in the last few months. I made another one of my errors in judgement and it made me sad. Fortunately, it was not a major hurt, but it still hurt. So, I will get a magic potion to ward off all romantic interests. It still makes me sad that I must be alone. But it is safer that way.
