I have several emails from the women, and they remain unread at this point.
Oh, please read them and provide excerpts.

OMG. My dad just emailed me, telling me about this guy who's just getting divorced and asking if he can give him my number. Not only am I nowhere near ready, but way to sell it, dad ("I'm so glad he's getting rid of that bitch" or something like that).

I replied "Let me be blunt - absolutely not."

At least this time he asked first....

Wow. Just, wow.

Dad is looking out for you, I guess. In his way.

Or he just really wants her to get married. Maybe he's upset about a seven year relationship that went no where. Maybe he's hoping for some grandchildren.

What Toj said. I know he means well, it just comes out really inappropriately sometimes.

He knows he's not getting grandchildren from ME and he has them from my stepbrothers anyway. And after ending an 8.5 year relationship, 3 months is NOT long enough. For me, anyway.

And separate from that: Who wants to date someone who's IN THE MIDDLE of divorcing? Not me, no way, no how.

Oh for crissakes, way way way too much drama.*I* would end up opting out, even as MOH, unless it was a VERY GOOD friend. I wouldn't put up with that kind of Jr. HS crap for a second. Glad you told her and glad she told T that SHE didn't want it. I would be a little pissed at T for emailing M as if I lied though. WTH?

Wow.

You did the right thing with saying no. I'm with Angela. In the middle of a divorce? Uh, no, no way no how. Not even within a couple of years after, not seriously anyway. Too much drama/baggage.

Alright, no need to bite my head off, I wasn't aware there were already grandchildren in the picture and I had thought you mentioned you and J were together for 7 years. Sorry for not knowing all the intimate details of your life. If you'd like, I could set up surveillance on you?

Eh, never mind. I'm too lazy and cheap for that.

And give the divorcing guy a break (I'm not saying you should date him, I'm just defending his desire to date during a divorce.) Maybe his marriage "ended" ten years ago and he's just now coming to terms with the fact he can't fix it, and dating again is all part of the moving on process? I seem to recall you ladies have a different opinion on this when the divorcing dater is a woman.

I just thought it was counterproductive to my dad's sales pitch to mention the divorce and the temperament of the ex-wife.

And when I bite your head off, you'll know it!
