It has been said men are genetically designed to wander. That they were made to go out and perpetually play the mating game and that you can’t hold a man down. Many other things have been said that are always “liked” by men and endorsed by experts who are always certainly male.
It’s all lies.
Because the cost of going out and cheating on your woman, just because you are a man and you want to stick with the programme is so expensive in so many ways.
Forget flowery “i love yous” said in a breathy low tone. Forget meaningless rituals we engage in to impress the world when we think our minds are so well hidden. Because that’s when we stray and that’s when we realise we are now on Pandora. And everything you see and hear on Pandora wants to tear you to pieces.
We are always looking for love and acceptance but in the wrong places. We are always trying to break out of the fold and go back to what we used to be ten years ago; taking the random girl out to the cinema or demanding that she calls us when she has a problem.
But then we have already given our hearts and all allegiance to the one woman in our lives, we cannot divvy up that for the random girl. When we stray, we need to invest a lot more than we used to back in the day. We are spending more than just money; we are pouring our all into this.
