The indecent proposal

Written By: Terry Foster | July 4, 2011

Filed Under: Life

Let me tell you about my backwards Tiger Woods moment.

I was in a bar talking to friends when a woman approached. She was in her mid 40s, well dressed and you could tell she had a little cash. She was not pretty but had a sexy look about her.

“Can I talked to you when you are done with your friends,?” she asked.

“Sure. No problem,” I said.

People want to talk to me all the time until they actually discover I am quite boring. But I got the newspaper and radio thing going and I like talking to people. So I get approached by men and women all the time. They mostly want to talk sports or about Celine or Little B. But this time it was different.

About 15 minutes later I was wrapping things up with my friends when she approached again.

“Got a minute,?” she asked.

“Sure,” I said. “What’s up?”

“Do you know what we have in common,” she said. “We both are married and we want to (blank) each other.”

She smiled.

My jaw hit the floor.

She lives in a huge house off the lake. Her husband leaves the country quite frequently and is not attentive and she found me attractive. To be honest I thought this was a joke. This never happens in real life. No woman approaches a man with such a proposal and is serious.

“You must be joking,” I said.

“Do I look like I am playing,?” she said.

That’s when it hit me. This woman is no joke. That is when I started thinking about Tiger Woods. He was a dog. He had more women than McDonald’s has hamburgers and it caught up with him. It appeared that his marriage with Ellen Nordegren was on the rocks because of his infidelity. But now Elin and Tiger have been seen together again, hugging and kissing.

Sources close to the couple are telling media outlets she is going to take him back and move back in the Orlando mansion with him. I am all in to this story because I never thought she would return, especially after she was assured a huge settlement.

I admit I was flattered when this woman approached me. I still got it, I thought. But then fear hit and I felt guilty even though I didn’t do anything. I’ve got a wife and two kids and life is good for me. I cannot mess that up. Abs won’t take me back and I will be living in somebodies basement the rest of my life trying to hit on cougars at Ocean Prime on Friday nights.

What if she were some nut bag who would begin stalking me? I’ve had a stalker before and it was not fun.

Let me ask the men out there. What would you do? How would you feel if you got an indecent proposal? And has anything like this ever happened to you? Were you flattered or scared?

“No one would know,” she said.

I would.

    Run,man run. I would be polite and say that I was flattered and then rejoin my friends . Quick! And probably tell my wife the minute I got home.

    Hey Terry, let me start by saying that I’m in my early 40′s, married for 12 years and I have 2 great kids. At thismoment in my life there’s no way I hook up that woman. I love my life as a Dad and husband. But I will say that in the first few years of my marriage I would’ve been very tempted and I can’t say what I would’ve done. I must say that I’m very surprised that Elin would go back to Tiger tho.


    • Terry Foster Says:

      There must be more temptation out there than most people know about. If you feel you can get away with it some folks try it. And you are right. I am surprised Elin is going back with Tiger — if those reports are true.

    It’s happened once in my life. I had no problem saying to her, ” I’m flattered, tempted and very, very married. Thank you but I’m afraid the answer is no.”

    Terry..Let Tiger Woods be your conscious ! You did the right thing and that shows you have class. I’ve had been approached like that before, more than once. I could never do it because I was always in a relationship. I don’t cheat and there are some crazy people in this world ! I think Elen is crazy to take back Tiger, hope she made em get an STD check ! Feel bad for her because he will probably do it again ! Take care,

    I have had this happen 3 or 4 times. The first time was about ten years ago when i was married to my first wife. I jumped at the chance. I was absolutely miserable and i justified it that way in my mind. I felt horrible afterward and completely mortified when i had to face my wife the next day. needless to say, that marriage didn’t last too long after that. I am now with the woman I honestly believe I was destined to be with, and it has happened to me 2 or 3 times and without hesitation I politely said no. It was absolutely a live and learn thing for me. I think the guys that cheat are the ones who aren’t grown up enough to be in a relationship in the first place. Good for you for turning down that opportunity Terry


    • Terry Foster Says:

      I think guys are flattered when a woman approaches them. I mean it does not happen all the time to us common guys. Maybe famous people it does. And sometimes you do it for comfort or it feels good or you just are flattered somebody pays attention to you besides the wife. I also think it is new. When guys do it at first they are all excited. But everything grows old. And I believe they stray back home — unless they are caught.

    That was a really amazing read. How long have you been writing? I loved this write-up so much, I linked to it from my webpage at bed liner !


    • Terry Foster Says:

      I have been doing this blog for three weeks. It is still a newby


    • Nathan S. Says:

      Don’t be fooled T.Fos – looks like Mr Liner is just trying to get his link on your blog with a generic message he’s probably posted on 1000 other blogs as well. Feel free to moderate the sucker.

    She would be a problem. Anyone who is that assertive, will not just go away.. especially “the day after”.
