He's in his 40s, single, and successful; however, he's practically obsessed with his toddler niece and our friend's young son.
Long story short, my friend once took him up on an offer to do laundry at his place, and she realized she needed to pick up something from a nearby drugstore.
Why are we so afraid to acknowledge the fact that pedophiles walk among us?
Not all of them act on their desires, but we often delude ourselves into thinking that people like Jerry Sandusky are practically fictional (even though many, including me, were able to quickly find him guilty in the court of public opinion).
It’s especially creepy when a guy does this when the car is already well in motion, as if something is about to happen that would make you consider jumping out of a moving car! The guy might know he’s a standup citizen, trying to protect you from all the creepers in the neighborhood, but he has to realize that if he just rolled up, you have no way of knowing he’s not trying to kidnap you.“I see you walking in this neighborhood every morning” or “I noticed you going to work down the street and I think you’re cute…” The guy thinks it’s romantic: all you can think is somebody who you never even noticed before has been watching you! You meet a guy at a bar, or on the beach, or in the grocery store, and give him your number. Not to ask you on a date, but just to say goodnight. But this is the age of technology—we all understand that people sometimes get urgent work calls at indecent hours.
Going so far as to turn the phone over or off just makes a woman think her date has some other woman who might be texting. Going out of his way, to flag down the waitress and have her cancel the transaction you just put on your card while he was in the bathroom, or rushing up to the counter to pay for the pack of gum you’re buying yourself, when he was all the way across the store.
I don't recall who she was..Chris Matthews had on a legal analyst earlier in the week, and she noted that one good thing that could come out of the Sandusky trial is the general public's willingness to acknowledge sexual abuse of children.
My brother-in-law is currently in prison for molesting my niece, but the only person I've ever told is my therapist (while discussing the fact that my sisters and I always tend to end up with guys we're incompatible with! I hate what he did to my niece, and it has no bearing on me as a person; however, I'm honestly ashamed that he somewhat tainted my family's history.
I would've never guessed that he'd be capable of such horrible acts; yet I'm just one of the many people he was able to fool.
There’s a lot of debate about building attraction when it comes to dating.
One of the perennial debates is whether looks make a bigger difference than, say, one’s personality. Star Trek debates as both sides try to convince the rest of the world that the other are shallow homonculi or people deluding themselves about their chances. It’s a generally accepted truth that people who are conventionally physically attractive have an advantage when it comes to dating.
Because they’re good looking, they’re seen as being more trustworthy, kinder and smarter – all very attractive traits to have.
And by virtue of being more attractive, they tend to have more attractive girlfriends and wives – after all, people tend to date other people at their “level” of attractiveness, no?
