XWW: 50 y.o. serial cheater
Married 22 years, Together 24
2 Daughters: aged 16 and 20
I just learned a new word this past Sunday. "THOT".
It is what my younger daughter referred to her mom as when we were talking this past weekend. (I get her on the weekends).
I said "THOT? What is that?"
"It means 'That Ho Over There' dad... don't you know anything?" she answered perplexed.
I literally fell of the barstool I was laughing so hard. But then I noticed my daughter wasn't. She looked sad. She's really upset at her mom. And I wish I could help her, but the only one who can help her is currently the same person causing her pain. Poor kid.
I'm going to talk to her therapist about it, because she doesn't seem to be adjusting to the new normal of having divorced parents, and she hasn't processed her anger and her disappointment at her mom yet, because frankly her mom hasn't done anything to change our daughters' perception of her. Both girls are just disgusted with her.

What is Wrong With Being By Yourself?
I am waiting for my divorce to go through, and I have many people asking me if I ever plan to remarry. Well, no. I don't have any immediate plans to remarry. It seems like there are so many people who hate to see me living by myself. I am actually really liking being a bachelor for the first time in 22 years. I have my own condo now, I have outfitted it the way I like, I have my daughters to get through high school and college, and I'm diving back into old passions that keep me very busy. I have no time to be lonely.
I was just wondering if any of you are hounded by well-meaning friends and family to get back in the saddle and start dating, when all you want to do is chill and enjoy concentrating on yourself?
