Blame Angelina Jolie

There has been actual research on so-called “mate poaching”.  They found out that a lot of single women aren’t exactly hunting for other singles. Sometimes, they look for the coupled up men and “poach” them away from their current relationship. It’s like the Angelina Jolie syndrome because she supposedly began a relationship with Brad Pitt while he was married.

The results of the research: “Single women were more interested in the man when he was described as attached (90% interested) than when he was described as single (59%). Men showed no difference in interest between a single and attached woman.”

The thing about these studies is that don’t leave much room for the variables. It’s interesting nonetheless, to see the “scientific” analysis about why women are attracted to men who aren’t available. What are your thoughts?

When you meet someone you are attracted to, is it more appealing when you find out a person is involved with someone already? Have you ever pursued someone who had a significant other?

Have you ever been involved with someone and met somebody else that you felt you was the person you were meant to be with? How do you tell the person you are in a relationship that you are in love with another person?

I used to love Rodney Harrison, but seeing him as commentator has dulled his star in my eyes. Oh and the steroid thing too. Can’t stand a cheating ‘a’ cheater. But I shouldn’t be surprised – it stars at the top for those Patriots.

One more thing about Terrell, you never hear about him hitting women, you don’t hear about him getting DUI, you don’t hear about him fighting dogs, you don’t hear about him shooting folks.

He takes care of his grandma, who has alzheimer’s. That doesn’t get airplay.

He may be a terrible teammate, but he seems to be a good human away from the game.

Melo – that’s the truth, thank God I got God. But honestly, I don’t encounter as much ‘foolishness’ in life as I do online, so I guess it all evens out.

PoppaG – and that’s why I think Terrell will always have a job. He’s good at what he does and I truly think he has a good heart.

We are all attracted to others no matter if we are in a relationship or not. However, I think that if one gets attracted to another who is in a committed relationship, then we should not pursue it. I think women are more guilty of this than men but that is just a thought. I think the “challenge” of “getting him” is what is intriguing. Many people I know just like the “win” and after they break up a marriage they lose interest. Sad but true.

My personal experience and observations reveal another possibility – that women who are apprehensive and hesistant to actually marry or have a real desire to be in a committed relationship find the possibility of having a fling or more with a married man appealing. It provides excitement, intimacy and romantic intrigue without obligations, long term commitments or the “inconvenience” of major changes of lifestyles. Of course, sometimes it results in the unexpected and is always a poor choice. But it’s very magnetic for those of us who are gun-shy due to negative prior commitments/marriages or simply psychological issues, etc.
