Not anymore. There isn’t some wonderful prize for being a loyal girlfriend who puts her relationship first. All the guy does is waste your time with hollow promises of commitment and happiness, until he stumbles onto someone better (aka younger, hotter, and dumber). That’s been my experience anyway. Guess that explains why I am a jaded 40something. Oh well. At least I’m not a fool (anymore). I no longer look at relationships through quixotic, rose-colored glasses thinking “gee if I treat him like a king, he will treat me like a queen….” Man, I laugh at how stupid and naive I was.
