This morning it was reported that the twin children of Michelle Parker, the woman who has been missing since November 17th, were taken from their father Dale Smith’s home and transported to their maternal grandmother Yvonne Stewart, who is hoping to get temporary custody if the courts will allow.

Dale Smith the ex-fiancée of Parker appeared with her on The People’s Court that fateful day when she vanished without a trace. And judging from the topic of discussion, it’s clear they both had no love lost between them. Aside from that, disturbing details have emerged that do very little to convince us of Smith’s innocence. His second wife died from a drug overdose, he has had multiple arrests stemming from illegal drug possessions and also for aggravated battery which he pled guilty to. Needless to say, it’s pretty clear that this guy has quite the checkered past. Smith experienced some of the violence while they were still a couple. She accused him of domestic violence and filed for an injunction back in 2009. It ended up being dismissed due to lack of evidence, but the fact remains that obviously Dale Smith is a guy that most girls might think twice about when it comes to settling down and having children.

Stories similar to this one usually have a tragic ending and while we hope that Michelle Parker will miraculously turn up, as the days go by, it gets harder and harder to remain optimistic.

Are women putting their lives at risk when they end up with guys that not only have had a violent past but have also been charged with serious offenses?

Nobody is perfect and we all make mistakes but sometimes red flags pop up that are too bright to ignore and yet some women ignore the signs and dive right in and even bring innocent children into the mix.

There is no guarantee that that the man you pick to be your life partner wont disappoint you but sometimes its worth considering whether or not your decision could endanger you or the lives of your little ones.

    “Nice guys aren’t rejected. […]They are the self-proclaimed nice-guys who are socially, and often emotionally, retarded–maybe as a result of not getting much attention.[…] The “nice guys” need to stop with all that whoa is me and step up their game. But I understand that women can look past top layers to find the “right guy,” too.”

    Exactly, I’d be wary of any guy who calls himself a NICE guy. Nice is an inherent human trait. Nice is the AVERAGE.The average man is a courteous gentleman. If you can’t get a date or a woman because you are a “nice” guy I’m going to sideeye you before a shame the women.

    Also can we please stop pretending nerds/geeks/slim/skinny dudes are awesome, sweet and just so darn adorable? Some of them can be douches because they are so secure in their knowledge and elitism. I mean, I’m a d*ck myself because I’m so sure of my intelligence.

    Also stop classifying men and women under one type. If women are so into bad boys every inmate should have two or three sidechicks.

    Also women and men who are emotionally insecure and unstable GRAVITATE towards dominating forces. They think they don’t deserve better or feel the need to be punished. This is a known psychological reaction. Now can we please stop this petty, sexist b*tching?

      I agree with your entire comment with one exception:

      “The average man is a courteous gentleman.”

      I beg to differ. Much more often than not, the average guy doesnt have the faintest idea what chivalry is. Not that its necessarily 100% their fault. In my opinion, chivalry has been on the endangered species list well before most of us were even thought of.

      Haha fair enough, I’ll clarify: Chivalry and courteous behavior are two completely different things (and quite frankly, I hate the concept of the former). I don’t mean a man who will open doors and move walls just because you’re a woman. I mean the man with the decency to ask your name before he shows you his junk. MOST men are like that. MOST men are interested in pleasing their current partner and MOST men are way more romantic than this site and women in general give credit for.

      I’ve met my fair share of asshats, but the guys in my life are completely wonderful, compelling creatures of manhood. They are all very different people. I’m tired of these rigid classifications. It’s painful to watch.

      you “totally agree” with both PA and SAA above, but then you agree with Timcampi who was making an extension about what I said. oooooooook.

      Understood! Thanks for the clarification!

    Obviously. I don’t play with even the littlest of hints; the way you carry yourself, the way you treat people in general, the fact that you understand fully that I won’t be putting my hands on you and you won’t be putting your hands on me.

    Tired of hearing about these boyfriends beating their girlfriend’s children to death and things of that nature. I can tell you right now their controlling ways have come up before and in different forms and didn’t nobody check them at the outset.
