Ok, what the frick...

I'm not trying to brag, I'm just trying to figure out why this has happened to me. I have never er....dated someone who hasn't ended up falling in love with me. Why? Why can't I just date someone for fun? Why does it have to end up like this? I guess that's a major reason why I don't date much, I don't like getting close to people, and it just seems to happen. fragh

It could be anything. For example, I rarely ever dated anyone I didn't know for a good long time as friends. (i.e. no blind dates, etc) As such, I never had an "ugly" breakup and we often remained friends afterwards. Sounds to me that maybe you tend not to get into dating someone until you've already (subconsciously) picked up on them being the sort to potentially fall for you, so it feels like it always happens that way.

Either that, or you got some of that Austin Powers mojo action going on for you.

I'm thinking one of these two, or a combination of both:

The manipulative b'ches theory:

There's a select group of women who are masters at the art of manipulate men. It's seems to be genetic, since my 2yo daughter does it very well... she seems to carry the gene (from her mother I'm sure). They prey upon men who can be emotionally messed up with ease. They use their trickery to achieve their goal, be it gold-digging, temporary companionship or good old sportsmanship (so they could brag about how much they messed you up with the other b'ches).

The chronic loneliness syndrome:

These are men who can't live without companionship. They try to be extremely nice to every woman out there in an unconscious effort to increase their mating pool. Every woman in contact with them will eventually give in to the extraordinary kindness, thinking they just found a jewel. After a while, they found out that the loneliness is indeed very chronic and won't go away unless high levels of attention are administered 24x7, along with lotsa lotsa sex. They can't keep up and just leave.

That's interesting, but I don't believe either is the case here. Normally, I've been pretty happy being single. In fact, most of the time when I'm dating someone, I'd rather be single. I've liked the freedom to do what I want, when I want to.

As far as the women go, I really don't believe any of them have been manipulative. I don't really have anything for someone like that to want. I'm poor and I can be a jerk sometimes. So, I doubt they're being manipulative when they say they love me.

I wonder if you could use the film crews from High School Musical and Brokeback Mountain? Maybe release a new film, "Rocky Mountain High"?
