I don't follow your logic.
Can you expand your opinion so I can catch up please.
I'm saying that old duffers have so little to do with the relationship market that younger women operate in that they're unable to give meaningful advice or input for younger women.

An older gent giving a younger, modern minded woman relationship advice or speculating on her success is going to be as far from useful as a McDonald's employee giving a lawyer career advice would be.

She may be younger but it is obvious by her posts why she "chooses?" to be unmarried.

Refuses to date anyone who may be a Republican.
Thinks marriage, specifically the ring is a sign of ownership.

Although she is a liberal she demonstrates a great deal of intolerance for those she doesn't agree with.

I too was her age and learning a bit of humility and acceptance is a sign of maturity. I wish her the best!

I fear it's less a matter of age, than of generational awareness. The market in which relationships exist now is dramatically different from how it would have been 30 or 40 years ago, when you may have had a bit more relevance. To chose to stay unmarried, in an environment where women continue to increase their own financial independence and autonomy is increasingly common, where as your difficulty believing that this is an option women would take up, reflects how limited this was as an accepted option in your day.

You seem to be saying "I don't like these things about her, I don't think that her choice to remain single is a choice, but is instead out of her control due to these things I don't like about her" this seems woefully out of touch with the way dating, relationships and marriage work in modern America and the Western world.

Then it could be said using your logic that women under 30 are to stupid and full of themselves to be in a relationship with a man, and must stick with children. This would just again illustrate how wrong you are.

The past 2 weeks I had women half my age begging to go out with me, and my wife was there. They were even very persistent.

Why were these younger women after me, and not my 3 sons? They are me 25 years ago with hair, and tats on arms spending 20 hours a week in a gym?

Seems your theory is flawed, as it only must apply to British or American women.
There is lots more women that defiantly prove your theory incorrect. Even 10's on the erection scale.

You can spin and disagree all you want, but you still will be wrong.

Sad thing........half the men and women are shallow and don't deserve loving relationships.

PS: Sex or race does not determine self emptiness.

everyone makes life choices.

relationships are just 1 of them.

Life choices require WORK to have a positive outcome.

To attempt to spin or distort or ignore above is a mark of stupidity, and how out of touch of reality the person is.

If you're overseas and having multiple young women coming up to you as you pass, while you're with a female partner and persistently seeking (begging, even!) a romantic interaction with you this may be more of a job market issue for freelance sex workers than a relationship market issue for young ladies who just happen to be there as you're passing.

I do agree though that the ability to selectively select or opt out of relationships for women is very seriously limited by the ability of women to earn and live independently so is very limited to developed countries in which women have accessible routes to meaningful work.

while I agree with what you were saying....the same thing happens here in Columbus Ohio.

See at age 50 I wear same size clothing I did in college. I have much less hair, but have a maturity and look women like.

Overseas actions were because I don't have a beer keg for a belly, dress very well, and have fun. The beach was where most interactions took place, and I was playing with the kids in the surf.

Watching my son wrestle a 400lb mahogany log during the tide coming in, I had a super hottie sit and watch with me. She had no idea it was my kid, or I was married. The rolex on her arm told me she was not gold digging. We laughed for an hour watching a log kick my muscle bound sons butt.

Should have seen the look on her when my wife came to get me to play cards.

Women are attracted to what they see as stable, and looks help a great deal. When you are fun, then they fall in love.

I have a similar problem but it's because I look 15 years younger than I actually am. I'm 56 and constantly get hit on by 30-ish women... Not interested though. When you are mature, you want mature.
