What “I’m Sorry” Means When it’s Used to Manipulate You
W hen a divorced woman on the wrong side of 45 with a brace of kids began to write about her experiences of being single last week, she opened her blog with the extraordinary statement that she was in relationship no man's land, condemned to be alone for the rest of her life. The anonymous woman, whose blog is called The Plankton, is not alone in believing that there are problems specific to being a single woman in middle age. A survey this month found eight out of 10 women over 50 think they have become invisible to men. Seven out of 10 women in the study felt overlooked by the fashion industry, while three-quarters of women in their 60s believed they had lost their identity by being labelled as a mum.
This season of The Bachelorette has had more than a few villains, although one guy's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde act stole the show. Afterwards a promising start that made him seem like a total catch, celebrated Princeton graduate and death defy-er Ian, a year-old executive recruiter from Los Angeles, did an about-face and in word ripped Kaitlyn apart. He offered ahead gems like, I came here expecting to meet the girl that had her heart broken and devastated as a result of Chris Soules, not the girl so as to wanted to get her field plowed by Chris, I don't find Kaitlyn interesting, I have a good age in my own life. I assemble chicks and have a lot of sex, and I am an mystery and who I am is a gift you unwrap for life. It wouldn't have been a surprise but he'd stuck to his douche-y guns on last night's Men Tell Altogether episode. But instead, he got along on his knees not once, although twice, to apologize to for his actions. After he took off his jacket to show he meant affair, obviouslyIan started off with, I assume it's clear that this was absolutely a season that was full of tension and emotions.
