No it don't bc_cowgirl. You keep your standards high girl. Low standards = low self esteem.

Because all the nice, beautiful ladies live too far away and long distance relationships have never worked for me.

oh, because at age 57, I still want a filthy rich nice handsome guy and they are out of stock, not on my counter any way. It was an impossible dream 2005, but I'll try for 2006, you just never know.

I got turned down by eharmony for lack of matches...3 times.

I guess they think that I match up with less then 20% of their ignorant masses.

It all comes down to timing and what each person wants in others, to some if the person looks good enough, etc. Dating is a game and some of us can handle the BS that comes with it and others just get really pissed off with it. It is a learning game as well. You crash and burn and try to figure out where you may have gone wrong.
I think I need a new engine too many crash & burns.

35 isn't old--please! just look those married, smug people directly in the eyes and say "because i'm not willing to just settle". while they are sputtering and trying to justify why they married & stayed with that loser--walk away.

One can only find true happiness in themselves. Too many always try finding it in someone else. Men want the little hottie and women want to know they are taken care of $$, the north american way. Taking my money to Greece to travel across Europe,lol, no wonder I'm single and happy, hahahaha.
No one to **** at me for having fun.

I'm not going to ever "settle" and to be honest.... the more I talk to my "couple friends" they honestly are miserable.. and even if they aren't.. they all SWEAR if anything happens to their spouse they will NEVER get remarried. Ok.. I'll take their word for it and stay single.

Just lucky I guess is my pat answer. Truth be told, the people who wanted to marry me, I didn't think were lifetime material and vis versa. Not looking for perfect, just perfect for me. I live a rather complicated life. I help look after a handicapped person, work full time and have a part time job as well. I think I have simply kept myself too busy and I don't go out enough.

"...stopped rescuing the sad, unemployed, emotionally challenged."

That's freaking hysterical! Sadly, it seems to be a common thread on dating sites.

I find it hard to believe that there are so many screw ups out there. It sounds like the field reports are indicating otherwise.

I'm still single and starting to wonder if what my ex said about me is true. Could this be the one time he was right about something?

I still single cuz I have not met anyone who has clicked with me. I would never waste a woman's time if nothing seems to click between us. Some will just to be with someone, that is so unfair to each other.

"I've stopped rescuing the sad, unemployed, emotionally challenged." Yup, sure can relate to that one. Fortunately for me, I stopped that about 15 years ago and have never looked back.

I have never married because:

1. I have never found anyone who would make my life better than it already is.

2. If I married, chances are I would be signing up for a lot more work i.e., twice as much cooking, cleaning, laundry, shopping, entertaining, looking after their children while they have visitation, etc. because the males of my generation have a tendency to not do very much other than watch sports with the clicker.

3. I have kind of gotten used to being only "half a person" because that's how society looks upon you if you are not part of a couple. Somehow society feels much better about a person who has married and then divorced. Can't quite figure that one out - I guess it is better to try and ruin two lives than to never marry and be content? Beats me!

4. Getting married just for the sake of being a "couple" and then getting a divorce when it doesn't work out hasn't really appealed to me a whole bunch. By staying single, I don't have to divide all of my assets that I have worked my butt off before the "other half" came along. I worked hard and struggled for them, they are mine.

So, I can say that at my advanced age, I am truly an old maid who makes a wonderful friend! I wouldn't have it any other way.
