I was chatting with a guy who says he is going through the congregation, one single mom at a time. He says in their quest for a "god fearing" man, church ladies will overlook certain obvious character flaws. The wolf in sheep's clothing is an almost literal analogy. I asked if he believes in god "well sorta". amen.

PS. I can understand how a single mother would look to a church community in hopes the children would have some guidance. Things are seldom as they seem in the world of religion.

Sounds like the prequel to Wedding Crashers, or whatever that movie was called.

I was the wing man for a guy who came up with a story that he was a kindergarten teacher. He easily slept with more than 100 women a year. My job was to corroborate his story. He even had a scrawled drawing from his niece on his refrigerator that he said was from one of his students.

I count those experiences as part of my education of how people delude themselves when it it coincides with their own personal drives.

Very well put. 

I know there are men who join AA even though they aren't alcoholic. They know that women, especially newbies to AA, are very vulnerable to being cajoled into a sexual relationship. Alcoholic men who have achieved sobriety trying to bed newbies even has a name: The Thirteenth Step.

Of course, joining a sex addiction group might seem a more direct approach, but one might find more suspicion among the women, even the newbies, in such a group.

I went to AA for a long time, and I never would have touched any of those guys with a 10 foot pole. Plenty tried, but I wasn't stupid.

I think a lot of women aren't as stupid as they might be pretending to be. Some women might be. Others may be willing to take a little risk, but when they smell bullshit will run the opposite direction.

Apparently, it happens often enough. Just google on "aa thirteenth step"

Ew. Just ew. When I went to al-anon, all the guys were fugly and old. I mean, Old. 

I'm glad I didn't let any of them near me...men or women.

AA isn't much different. 

Oh I know it happens alright....it is very common. I knew of several girls who hooked up with people. One of which who I am still friends with. She got pregnant from a guy when she went back out...but that was the best thing that ever happened to her because she is now clean and sober (married with 3 kids!!!!)....
