<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.
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.

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.

I didn't say he had to have never been married, just no kids. And I know they're few and far between. I might end up a cat lady.
I don't have any kids, darling....

An unmarried male wouldn't be dinged for being nver married. Sorry Dog, keep looking.

I'll keep that in mind. We should make a pact like they did in My Best Friend's Wedding that if we're still single by a certain age, we marry each other.

It has happened.

But JamWow will have to stand in line behind Cheluzal and Little Roo and God knows who else.

South of the Georgia border, that man is gold.

Hell, if you're willing to support me, I'll pull up stakes and head down now! I don't know if I'd want to live in Florida, though. That's where old people go to die. And I wouldn't even ask you to move to Illinois, I want to get out of this hellhole myself.

How about we move to the backwoods of Kentucky? We can make moonshine for a living?

Hey, hey! Maybe I SHOULD move to Florida!

Chunzy gave up on me because I'm 3/4ths of an inch too short and my hair isn't dark enough. And I haven't even heard from Roo in a while. I don't think I'm her fb friend anymore. She must have moved on to better things.

So I'm all yours, Jammer!

True. My son is almost 50, never married, no kids. But he is a serial engager, 3 times. He actually surprised #3 with a trip to Paris to propose. Women have always been attracted to him. Good looking, good job, always willing to do things instead of tv, will wine and dine etc. And I'm not bragging, just stating what it is. However, he can be too picky re women, somewhat hard-headed, commitment phobic, stubborn. Traits that can be problematic. And what I've said to him is to take a good honest look at some of these traits and to soften up, among other things.

And no, edog, before you jump on this, he's not gay. So maybe you need to look at how you go over re your personality and at your requirements and soften up a little. What about those yellowhammerettes in Wilmington? Just kidding. I'm just mentioning that from your location.
