Funny, I was thinking of asking the same question for a while. One divorce, one engagement. I really thought I made it clear when I said, in a debate, them dogs were here, before you, and will probably be here after you :lol: They are :lol: :lol: And loving life, :D heck a man can always get a steady once he is told old to follow hounds, besides, Dating is kind of like fishing, catch and release, is working out better then I thought, and much cheaper :lol: :lol: :lol:

Gave up everything I loved for my last relationship and was miserable. Never give up what you love for who you love, cause real love would not make you give anything up. At least that is how it should be. Best stay single, hunt and be happy. Life is too short to not do the things that make you the most happy. That might sound jaded, but that is my take on it all.

You an also be in a relationship with someone that shares the same interest with you and always tries to "one up" you. That is a miserable relationship as well. Yep, it is better to be single and just live your life as you see fit.
I like my men like I like my mountains...... Rugged, challenging, and WILD!!!

heck the one I was engaged to, let them go while I was at work, hoping they wouldnt return :D I think thats when I made the comment of being here before you, or maybe it was timing leading up to the season opener, and didnt have the heart to pack her bags, and tell her see ya in a few months. Its wonderful you found a wife, like that, they are a very rare find here, extinct, I keep saying , i meet a good looker, with a better pack of dogs then me in the woods, I might slow down and take a look :D :lol: :lol:

Man you brag a woman like that up around here, you would have to put bars on your house to keep these vulchers away from her. My ex was a beautiful blond, so i know that first hand, but problem was city girl, just didnt mix with a houndsman, speciallly after i met her dad, and he was a big tree hugger. But i have a wonderful daughter i raise half the time, so life is good :D

shoot i got bars up now. we have a son and he loves hounds as much as i do. sadly city ppl and tree huggers will never understand what we do cause they are so closed minded and city girls require a ton of up keep.

Had the talk about all the time i was spending out in the woods, and was told if it was the same in two years it would be the big D. But since then she has seen the light and and just said she would come with me.

I don't know about you guys but I think most hound hounters are extremely independant individuals. At least that's what upsets the women I attract. That I don't need "her" to "make me happy" really makes them feel unimportant but I don't need that kind of person in my life. For me anytime I'm dating a young lady if she tells me after a while that I make her happy I generally start distancing myself. It's not my job to make anybody happy. I'm happy where I'm at with my life and my hounds. Those men out there who have wives who accept their houndhunting have a special type of woman.


"A healthy relationship consists of two individuals who are accepting of the other without the intention of shifting a partners focus to their own" I had to pay a damn psychologist $75 an hour to understand that but it's true.

I can say this about men I have dated as well. So it goes both ways. I have had men hate my dogs cause they are my main focus in life.

I'm six years in and there aint a week that goes by where my wife doesn't threatin the big "D" because of the dogs. luckilly so far I have kept her canned up for the last four years straight :lol: I love the hell out of her, but I don't think she will ever understand why I do this and why so often. her thinking is I should be able to go out a couple times a year and that's enough. I go two to three times a week all year round though. She really don't like critters especially dogs, I guess the oposites attract thoery hits home for me. maybe some day she will come with me and see what it's all about. as my kids get older they go more and more with me. pretty soon it will be me and the youngins and she will be home alone. I guess she'll either find a boyfreind or come join us. I hope it's the latter of the two.
