Call it providence, call it my consciousness, if you will, whatever the case may be, the message got to me that I needed to look and re-evaluate my entire life and what I was basing my priorities on, what I was basing my manhood on. I finally was able to realize why I had done some of the things that I did, why I was attracted and why I found myself connecting with some of the women that I was connecting with.
Kyle Bradford, my current guest has been divorced for nine years and is now engaged to be married to his Queen. It’s something that I’m going to have to continue to deal with, because I’m a very smooth talker and I can kind of talk my way out of anything, but at the end of the day, you can’t hide what’s going on inside of you and you can’t lie about that. I did not have to leave dead bodies along the way and obviously I mean that metaphorically.
Based on his own experience of dating after divorce, Kyle advises waiting a year before starting date. I’ve been a very successful person in the course of my career. I’ve got two great kids, I look relatively young for my age, I consider myself to be somewhat charismatic and once I get over the initial introduction, I can talk to anybody. I remember to this day and I’m not going to even lie about this.
It is a very unfortunate thing that over the course of those early years that I made some of the mistakes that I made and I hate that. If I had a man or men in my life speaking to me, saying, “You need to really reconsider what you’re doing here,” I’m convinced I would not have made some of those choices.
I would often prey upon the single mothers who probably didn’t have a lot of confidence in themselves, because they were single moms and whatever and I would show them a good time and invariably within a month or two months into the relationship, they would want something else and I would be done, because I wasn’t ready.
It’s so wonderful to find a new love, especially after you’ve been through so much pain and loss.
