At singles events, women come in groups and are reluctant to talk to men.
In online situations, women say they want desperately to meet a nice guy like me, but never answer my response to their profile. They have a lot of dating options, they’re building their careers, and there isn’t a clear urgency to settle down.
I thought that since I was an attractive, fit, well-educated, financially and emotionally secure guy that I would have no problem finding a woman in her mid 30s to settle down with and start a family.
A few of us were discussing when men were at their most attractive in a bar yesterday.
The general consensus was that men were at their most attractive in their early thirties. I know its a silly question but I find the topic rather interesting.
I use to think so until I went all cougar and started dating a barely legal. Perfect body, sexy, delicious...we've been together for 3 years and we're getting married soon.
I’m a 42 year old single male who recently left a 5 year relationship for various reasons, but mainly because I wanted kids and she did not.
Embedded in the idea of survival of the fittest is survival of their children.
These courtship rituals are not simply a showy way of expressing interest. Our courtship rituals are marked by certain familiar activities, which we think of more modestly as dating.
I have found that I get no responses from any women online and the only women who respond to my ad are usually much older and don’t meet any of my criteria outlined in my profile.
I am told that women want to settle down and have kids, etc., but their actions seem to be to the contrary.
I am trying to remain positive, but two things are really bothering me. Once a guy crosses 35, however, he (theoretically) tends to get more serious.
