Hate dating men with children
A lot of men my age seem uninterested in a committed relationship, seeming to prefer a more casual “low investment, low return” approach to relationships. As a guy who was single for 35 years, I completely agree and think that – all things remaining equal – having a good relationship is a far superior state of being than being alone.
Do men actually ENJOY the endless tedium and stress of going on a string of disappointing dates? (This does not mean that I look down on single people or think you should be in an unsatisfying relationship so, please, spare me the complaints.) But what gets me the most excited, Elaine, is that you’ve forced me to consider something that I’ve never actually considered before: Why Don’t Men Hate Being Single As Much as Women Do?
These guys play on their terms, not yours and are a total waste of time to any woman trying to forge something real and lasting.
It’s like trying to teach a fish to ride a bicycle. Women expect their relationships to be transcendent.
Why don’t men hate being single as much as women do?
I know you say most men are marriage-minded underneath but they seem much less interested in getting into a stable, committed relationship than women do, and seem to drag their heels.
They’ll call you once a week to hook up and that’s all. Kids can be great bonuses to meeting someone new and they can also be nightmares just as easily.
