I had a lot of positive and negative male influences growing up. I saw men do and say things that I didn't like. Interesting enough, I have more male friends, than I do female. However, the female friends I do have are close. They are about as diverse, different, and unique as they come. My male friends, too for that matter. I value all of my relationships because they are genuine, complicated, and transparent. We love each other. We love the good, the bad, and the ugly. I think relationships fail when we choose to not see people for who they really are. In fact, every relationship that I had where infidelity was issue; I knew. I saw the wandering eye. I ignored the extra flirtatious nature, because I believed that I was enough. Moment of Truth: You are enough for the right person. You never have to make someone be faithful. Either they value you, or they don't. The right person will not risk it all for a moment of temporal pleasure. The right person will commit. The right person will be worth the wait. The right person will be faithful to the end.
