the never date a guy who...

Welcome to the first installment of our new favorite columns...never date a guy who...

For our first post, we'd like to finish that sentence with "never date a guy who was left by his wife."

According to a friend who had a couple failed relationships with guys who were ditched by their wives--- the damage to their egos is irrevocable. Think about it. As Samurai Shawn once taught us, it's better for men to assume that every woman wants them (it doesn't matter if it's true, it just matters if it helps you...like believing in Jesus.) So, if a guy gets left by the woman who at one point thought she wanted to spend the rest of her life with him...then his manhood is totally tarnished. Apparently, we're better off dating widowers, because their wives ain't coming back and they didn't leave them by choice. So, next time you go out with a guy who's gotten a divorce, wait for him to go to the bathroom and then snoop through his bookshelf to make sure he doesn't take advice from a guy named Gary Smalley.

But if not for self help books, what's a guy to do that got left by his wife and doesn't want that to negatively impact his future relationships? Be a real man, accept defeat and move on. I know, I know-- easier said than done--- especially after years of marriage, but are you gonna let that whore of an ex-wife ruin all of your future prospects too? NO. You deserve to be date-able again. Trust me, Smalley's book would have more aptly been titled "too little, too late."

Loyal readers, if you've got any "never date a guy who" or "never date a girl who" suggestions for us comment below and we'll devote an entire post to it!
