Men have no self respect or standards adult content

this is a vent mostly. my ex asked me today if i wanted to have sex. seriously? we split up 2 years ago and are still in the process of divorce. we've both said and done horrible things to eachother both before the split and after, things that you can't come back from, things that should make you loathe the other person and make the idea of sex with them repugnant. apparently because i've lost a little weight none of that other stuff matters and im suddenly a good candidate for sex. funny how i am now but when we were married i had to practically beg him for sex.

i really hate the double standard here. if i went up to an ex and asked for casual sex i'd be called a whore, but it's OK for a guy to do it. why?

  • Sorry but there is no double standard for me. People who are desperate for sex to the point of begging for it from an ex, whether male or female, are pathetic. End of story.

    Give him a withering look then laugh and say something along the lines of "I'm sorry, for a moment there I thought you were asking me for sex" then laugh uproariously. That should sufficiently squash him for him not to try again.

  • he's such an asshole. he's actually getting snippy with me because i said no. wtf is his problem? he must think he still "owns" me or something because we're not officially divorced yet.

  • Shake your head in a pitying manner and say not interested in the least.

  • I would stop communication with him unless it is about the divorce or any children you share together.

  • His "southern" brain region is doing all his thinking for him at the moment. If it's of any consolation to you, this probably means, A- he noticed you lost weight & is sorry for letting you slip away, B- he isn't dating anyone else at the moment or C- he's just reminding you of the reason you are divorcing the pig!

    ^^^^I also agree with virginiamama: direct all communication to those 2 topics only, at least until he can behave himself.

  • not all guys are like that, just looks like you "picked a winner". I'd ignore him.

  • Tell him he is a sad strange little man.
