Here, Hold This

Here, Hold This

Junior, my sister, learned the other day that her boyfriend of 9 years has been serial cheating on her for quite some time now. Basically with any woman that he can pick up. I never liked him, but I have a very low tolerance for male bullshit, and D-man is a champion bullshitter. I don't mind an unreliable narrator, but I prefer that he not live with my sister.
Still and yet, this might not be the end of their relationship as D-man has suggested that they go to counseling. Yeah, like that's going to work. I know that couples therapy can work, and in theory should be effective most of the time, but the stumbling block that trips up most people in this instance is honesty. Can a bullshit, skank ass liar cheater be honest enough with himself and everyone else to actually get the help they need and mend their relationship with their partner? I have low hopes on this one. Low, low hopes. I don't know. I've never understood why someone stays with a cheater, or indeed why someone cheats. When I was a kid my Dad ran around with cheap barfly floozies, and the suffering this caused at home scarred us all. It's probably why I'm so harsh on cheaters. They just don't take the time to stop and think about how their actions impact all of the other people in their life.
Ah well, as I've said before, always, people are just gonna do what people are gonna do. We're idiots that way.

Cheaters totally blow. How can you trust one? They have learned to lie and manipulate...I hope HE'S the one spending the money on counseling because most cheaters do not want to be reformed...they want to have their cake and eat it too.

Is that you or your sister in that picture? So cute! I used to drink out of my father's beer stein. Wish I had a picture of that.

Good luck to your sister. I'm skeptical of D-man's wish for counseling. I think he'll convince the counselor that Junior is the problem. But I don't really know either them, and maybe I'm underestimating the counselor, who I also don't know. :)

Julie - LOL!!! Who knows what'll happen with those two.
As for the pic, that's my nephew Adam's daughter. Two weeks ago we were standing outside and she wanted me to take her pic, and I gave her my wine to hold to free up my hands ;)
Oh, and I used to drink out of my dad's beer can when I was a kid. To me the perfect taste of beer is Schmidts. How sad is that?
