Long story short, I was married for 9 years and have 2 kids. After last kid, wife turned off the sex and became a nag. I was beta to the max. Discovered TRP, started lifting again 3 years ago, divorced not quite one year ago after just living my life (sex improved but she was just a miserable person to be around). I'm enjoying my new life. And just started getting back out there to meet new people which brings me to my present mindset.
I'm in great shape and have no problems talking with women. But I'm having a hard time with the idea of "love". I don't need a woman in my life but I value companionship. Most recently went on a date with a woman. Solid 6 but very intelligent and kind... Things I value over straight up sexual appearance. About 7 years younger than me and she has no kids.
Lust is lust. Easily defined. What is your perspective on love knowing that a woman will never love you in the way a man wants? Is it just find someone who likes to be around you and will add value to your life? I'm pretty right brained about things and just can't rationalize what love is anymore having left a 13 year relationship with one person. Perspective is appreciated.
Edit: Lots of vomit on my part. I appreciate the dick punch.
