Recently divorced and started dating. I have met some nice men,only a few and then there is the selection of men that all they are about is wanting to satisfy their sexual needs and have no concern about a relationship or should I say a relationship that could lead to the next level. I refuse to settle for a temporary relationship that leads to a dead end and not to a level of commitment into a marriage. So I feel now I have been let down and do disappointed that have have a shield up to protect my heart! How do I take that shield down and allow someone to get to know me without running them off. I have just been so disappointed now that I can not enjoy a date because in the back of my mind I have already started the negative thoughts which kills the moment!
