Depressed about dating prospects
Where are the guys who can appreciate the ‘just right’? I’m one of those old-fashioned women who believe that a married man is off limits, no matter what kind of sad-eye, puppy-dog face he fakes when he complains that his wife doesn’t love him.
There are also the married men or men with girlfriends who present a problem, since there are some who apparently like having their cake and other slices on the side. It’s time for this ‘single means you’re pathetic’ attitude to cease, and it’s time to shut some people up.
Like finding a decent, respectful, caring, honest, ambitious man who’s not apt to jump every tart he sees is easy street.
There’s no outlet where I can shop and get the perfect man to suit my personality.
Since I broached this topic to friends a few weeks ago, there’s been a mini barrage of articles explaining why some women aren’t married.
It’s all pop, psychobabble for the most part, but there are a few points that did force me to ponder further.
There are different types of men out there obviously, but I tend to come across certain types often.
There’s the overeager, passive-aggressive guy who’s secretly bitter and ends up annoying me instead of interesting me.
What’s wrong with being single and happy, or at least making honest efforts to achieve personal happiness?This isn’t about pointing fingers or making men feel bad, but I want a man who’s willing to let me pursue my career and dream path, just as I would support him in his goals.This, according to Miss Thrice-Divorced, is being selfish.I also feel as though I haven’t achieved my personal best just yet, and, ideally, one would want to offer up his or her best self in a relationship.The last thing I want to do is place the reason for my happiness on another person.
