EXACTLY my point!!

Well, the question the OP posed seems loaded to me.

From your response to Dewdrop93 you seem to have noticed that yourself.

I was trying to make light of the loaded question by "boxing in" your response.

Actually ya know, it is!

There are so many factors here, almost too many to even consider this as based fully in fact or fiction.

Very not true, for the simple reason that I don't date someone who I don't feel is the best thing out there [in my eyes]. I never settle and I never enter a relationship for the sake of being with a man. When I'm with someone, he's the only person I have eyes for .

I take this to mean that while in a relationship you do meet other men who are interested but you rebuff them. Once you break up, they swoop in like vultures.
I'm sure the same is true for men. It's not like she is lining them up on purpose.

if your saying the more attractive you are the more likely you line up guys i dont know if thats true. But it certainly is easier for an attractive person to hop on to the next guy. However to assume an attractive woman is not serious about a relationship is probably destructive towards relationships.

The same can be said for men as well.
NOT TRUE. Many women follow the same rule as "don't quit your current job you hate, until you find another one"


Women are planners.

Of course there are always guys waiting in the wings, and hoping. Thousands of them.

But that doesn't mean the woman is aware of them. If she's in love, then she ONLY has eyes for the guy she's with. So it doesn't matter one bit how many guys are around the corner!

There are of course exceptions, but most women really only want one man. So if you're that man, stop worrying about the "other guys" lurking around.

Everyone knows there are other fish in the sea. But if you're happy with your current fish, who cares?

Way to generalize . I don't understand how some people take a concept and tend to apply it to EVERY situation, including relationships. What you're describing is a woman who doesn't want to be alone and jumps from relationship to relationship, that's obviously not an emotionally healthy woman.
