Looks like everyone is getting their wish ... except women that want to marry wondering where all the good men have gone.
There are women marrying and I agree with lisaB, for some marriage is a wonderful tradition and it works out okay.
I think the issue, as illuminated in this thread, is when you find someone with whom the wonderful tradition fails to work out, so the entire gender is blamed and condemned.
Oh where are the women who are acting like real women, the way women are SUPPOSED to behave, oh where or where have the real men gone, where are the men acting like they are supposed to behave? The way Gone with The Wind says they are or, well some other fictional text or one-sided self help book.
Think like that and any relationship is DOOMED.
Well then, all righty, all men must beat up their wives! I have known SEVERAL abusive men so it must be true then.
I love this thread and I have a whole post written on it that I will post in a week or so for my blog.
This issue is expectations, you have a penis, I expect this. You have a vagina I expect this. I am right! I expect noble things and you are wrong as you are not delivering noble things and so on and so on.
Yes, MovingAhead, the people who rush to date and date in volume are often interviewing a mate, they are looking to see what the potential mate can do for them. Why are you dating? Why so many women? Is it for the joy of dating or to see if the woman with you at dinner has what you WANT in a woman and thus what she can do for you? You say you know what you want.
It is the same thing.
I can tell you, that you have tone careful about your expectations. If you don't find the a good person, it is better to have no one until a good person comes along and this all takes a lot of time, patience and letting go of obstinate views on what is right/wrong, in other words what is black and white.
I think everyone needs to re-evaluate what "should" be done in a relationship. Once again, it comes down to finding a person of character and integrity, not easy.
LMAO, I was looking for a Unicorn as well, just watch the Charlie and The Unicorn series on YouTube, no thanks.
They steal kidneys.
