VillageMike saidI would like to know what the person who posted the link to the article thinks. Did you read his profile?
I'm fine being single. I'm not really looking to date and I don't hookup either.
It's weird he is even posting in the Dating and Relationships forum.
If I told you more about the OP I think you'd feel embarrassed about your post.
So go ahead nobody is stopping you.
If I do it will be via email as Metta has a right to privacy.
I'll share this with you though, his partner died. That you went after him on this topic leads me to believe you are probably yet another sock account. Since when, by the way, is someone who is happily single NOT PERMITTED to post about relationships? Is that some rule you made up? It won't fly here.
Well you just violated his right to privacy.
I having nothing but sympathy for his loss.
But if he is going to participate in a discussion forum and post on relationships as a single guy, and just put a link to a story and not provide any comment of his own, such as "I believe in this point of view, I lost my partner and for me this is how I will live my life" - something, anything, then perhaps those of us not "in the know" would be able to put his point of view (which we still don't know but can only infer that he agrees with the article) into context. But he did not do any of that, he invited discussion on the topic and I point you back to what he has written in his profile as fodder for this particular discussion.
If he is still having psychological issues (and who wouldn't it is perfectly understandable) he should seek out some of the excellent government programs that are available to help people who have gone through what he has. And then one day he might change his mind and change the words he has written in his profile.
