Cheaters Never Prosper

I'm going to get on my soap box for a minute because I'm completely annoyed and perplexed. Do all men cheat? What's the inherent need? Now, granted, I'm not saying cheating is done ONLY by men, because obviously it goes both ways. But lately I've been meeting a handful of shady, shady people who think it's perfectly fine to be married and yet actively seeking out other women to date. Um, no. That is NOT OK with me. Those who've followed my blog for a bit may recall my frustration with an ex of mine unfriending me on Facebook and then BLOCKING me seemingly out of nowhere. Well, now the mystery is revealed: He got married. Fine, whatever, be married, but please don't resurface six months later and want to hang out with me (while STILL being married, but wanting "to play"). My secret admirer? Engaged. Yep, I said it. What is up with people? Has the world gone mad? Why is OK to send pictures or post pictures of your face on a dating website while stating you're married? Does marriage have some new connotation that I'm not aware of? The last time I checked, it meant being faithful. Or have the rules changed? I'm sorry to go off today. This has been festering in me since yesterday morning when the Facebook blocker didn't understand why I wouldn't go out with him knowing he was married (his actual words, "What? Is that a problem?"). Yeah, it is. Maybe it's just me, but I do have some morals (deep down buried inside). :)
