“You must be worried about your wife”
Hooking up and meeting women can be difficult enough as a single man, but it might seem like it becomes downright impossible as a married man. It is true that it will definitely be more difficult to hook up with women as frequently as you used to when you were single, but there are some unique disadvantages that come with being a married man on the hookup and dating scene. Knowing what they are can help you plan accordingly and be more realistic about your expectations for how the night should go. This way you will be able to make each venture out onto the scene much more enjoyable and much less stressful.
Having to Hide Your Marital Status
Obviously, you will probably want to hide your marital status in some way when you hit the hookup scene. Otherwise, women might not approach you at all and they may outright reject your advances. Hiding your marital status is sometimes difficult, especially if a woman is suspicious enough to be looking for a ring tan or something similar in order to gauge whether or not you are actually married. It may involve a bit of trickery, but hiding your marital status should never be too hard. It is, however, a major disadvantage when it comes to the hookup scene because it involves a level of deception from the get-go. It’s never a good way to start a potential hookup.
Deciding Whether or Not to Tell Her
“You have to stay conscious all the time”
Even if you were trying to hide your marital status, it can be difficult to know whether or not to tell her that you’re married. The act of telling her can be quite a bad idea if she seems particularly sensitive, but either way there are too many chances that it can possibly go wrong. The decision itself can be a stressful decision and you might start to dread it when you hit the dating scene. Generally, it is a good idea to inform her if you plan on having a longer relationship with her. If you only want to have a one night stand, there is absolutely no reason to tell her and you should really avoid it if you can, otherwise things might get messy. And not in the good way.
Getting Accusations Thrown at You
It’s unpleasant but sometimes inevitable. If you hit the dating scene without trying to conceal your marital status, you’re probably going to get a fair bit of heat from the women you meet. Some may be downright hostile, and it can be a very risky game to play. You want to avoid giving out solid contact information unless you have taken the proper precautions because a woman may try to play nice just to have a way to rat you out to your wife. Whether or not something as serious as this happens, it’s still not that unlikely that you will face plenty of accusation when you start trying to pick up women, and it can become tiresome fairly quickly.
