Question About "Bad Boys"

paul_in_utah's picture

G'day fellow STalker, 

So I have been wresting with this one for a while.  What is it, exactly, that makes "bad boys" so irresistable?

As a bit of background, my current situation mostly revolves around SOD (Significant Other-Daughter"), the TPP ("Trailer Park Prince"), and SOD-GD (Significant Other - Daughter's GrandDaughter).  TPP is the biological father of SOD-GD.

For those who have been following, SOS (Significant Other - Son) relecutantly got a job at Target after sitting on his ass for 3 months after graduating high school.  He easily got a job, and displayed a surprising amount of enthsiasm for said job.

G'day fellow S'Talkers, had something on my mind and wanted to get thoughts of the group.

For those who may not have followed my tragicomic attempt at a relationship and Steplife in general, here is my cast of characters:

SO - Signficant Other, who lives with me.

SOS - Significant Other Son, who is sometimes still staying with me and SO

SOD - Significant Other Daughter, who lives with

TPP - the Trailer Park Prince, aka SOD's Sperm Donor. 

SOD-GK - Signficant Other - Granddaughter, the child of SOD and the TPP.

SO has been doing a lot better, but MAN!!!! She is unhappy with her kids

SOD - Significant Other Daughter, who lives with

TPP - the Trailer Park Prince, aka SOD's Sperm Donor. 

SO-GD - Signficant Other - Granddaughter, the child of SOD and the TPP.

Oh Silly SOD!

G'day fellow STalkers,

Just a quick-hitter from the insane world we live in, raising other people's children.  As a quick reminder:

SOD = Significant Other-Daughter

TPP = Trailer Park Prince, SOD's baby-daddy.

Why would anyone with assets get married these days?

I see this a lot on mano-sphere type sites, where I read stories of men who get taken to the cleaners in a divorce.  There is usually a high initial cost in the divorce, followed by stories similar to what we see here - endless arguing over alimony, CS, and "extras" for the kids.  Many men have sworn off marriage because it opens them up financially to tremendous loss.

Bad decisions that Skids make to complicate their (and our!) lives

This is something that has been rattling around my head recently.  It seems in step-life that we see far more examples of immature, emotionally unstable, and downright foolish decisions by the children in our lives, as compared to what would be seen in an intact and stable nuclear family.  Here are some of my examples, what do you got StepTalk?

1.  Taking on expensive habits that they can't afford - cigarrettes, energy drinks, fancy coffees, fancy clothes they wear one time and forget.
