I know we've talked about this before, so forgive me for sounding like a broken record, but I've discovered this in my own dating adventures.<quoted text>This line of thinking is just so strange to me, not that I disagree that its out there. I remember in mylate 20's early 30's era a divorced friend telling me that whenever he met women his age who had never been married, in the back of his mind he wondered what was wrong with them. the thought being that a divorced woman was "good enough" for someone to want to marry and this just didn't happen to work out, but a never married woman must have some issue that made her non-marriage material if she had not done so by that time.
While I would prefer a woman with no kids, I realize this is a pretty tall expectation and so wouldn't automatically rule one out based on that.
I was surprised at the lack of luck I was having with online dating.(I only had one or two short-term relationships in about a year and a half.) I'm okay looking, in decent shape, have a steady job, what more do women want, right? But I suspect it was the fact I had never been married that was "off-putting" for most of the women.
