I knew a woman like this. We were co-workers. My friend got close to her but I never did. She was very attractive, very superficial, didn't like to wear the same outfit twice (everybody's seen it!) and was looking for a guy who made $100,000 plus or more per year. The guy she settled for and married was dead broke, but at least she came down to Earth. There's little hope for your acquaintance.LW2: re your 49-yr-old friend who only wants to date 40 yr olds.
I don't think that's an unreasonable age difference. Would any of us condemn a 49-yr-old man who wants to date 40-yr-old (as opposed to 22-yr-old) women? I don't think so.
I know a 50-yr-old (never married) woman who has been DESPERATE to find a mate for 25 years. She is quite attractive, altho she refuses to believe it and constantly puts down her looks. She turns down *every possibility* for a date (usually without even ONE conversation) because the man in question is "not good looking." This means he is either:
--too old/too young
--too short/too tall
--too fat/too thin
--doesn't have enough hair
--doesn't earn enough money to completely support her
--has financially dependent children who might take money/time away from her.
Now, obviously, this woman is batsh*t nuts and no man with a brain would want to get within 100 ft of her cray-cray. She has driven away almost every one of her friends for 25 years because of her constant (daily) whining about not being able to find the perfect man. In fact, at this point no one who knows her would even dream of trying to fix her up with a man they remotely liked.
So, LW, in comparison to this, your friend doesn't sound unreasonable at all.

Did you say she's hot?

No kidding. No one who has listened to her constant, selfish bitching for 25 years (or even 5 years) gives a flying F anymore. And she regularly (approx. every 2 months) threatens to kill herself if she doesn't find a mate who meets all her ridiculous requirements. The truly awful thing is that if she did, most people who know her would say "good riddance."
