Some women feel they have to have a man. Some don't. A lady friend of mine was burned because of that. She was so desperate and lonely. I explained to her what I thought would happen. It did, and she hasn't heard from him since.

Who are these women?
Are these the same women that like free meals
with guys they don't even like,
don't want to have sex until after the hundredth
date, want to have sex within the first five minutes
of the first date, don't like decent guys, only go with
the bad guys, don't like to be treated nicely and expect
men to support them on wild and crazy world wide trips?
I don't know any women like this.
I think they are the figments of an under imaginative mind.
But that's just my opinion of course.

Don't blame it all on the ladies. Men are desperate to. Some men will ask a lady to marry them the 1st date.

Some will even do it over an email.. I remember this one nice chap willing to crawl through glass to get to me.. He was just about ready to hitch up his huskies and rescue me from the frozen north!!

However when I turned down his proposal he ever very upset and swore at me.

Funny over email. When they ask you on email you can pretty much tell you don't want to meet this man. I have had a stalker who, why did I give her my phone number? I changed phone numbers and email address. Just people careful what you give people. You're email address is a road map right to you're house. Phone number is worse. I am a computer expert. The internet people can find out anything about you or me if they have a brain. I personally have been divorced 4 years and really don't get to shook up about looneys. Search the internet for yourself. You will be surprised what you find. We can blame GOOGLE for that. Everything you type on the internet is not a secret.

This is an interesting article: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20100119/ap_on_bi_ge/us_marriage_economics

It actually says men have more to gain, financially, than women do from marriage.

Yes over email and he was an actor from NY.. He just figured he had met his match..He went into a complete tirade about how he got these huskies and sled to come and get me. I freaked out and never went back on that site until 5 years later.. My phone number is unlisted and I have 24 security so am pretty safe as long as stay indoors..

Now just who said we were that antsy to get married?

Indeed he probably spent plenty on the huskies and the sled.. Never mind the Rabbi with a pit bull he had already paid for waiting to perform the ceremonies..

Well I am a 40 year old woman out of a 23 year relationship and not eager to ever get married again. I agree with the others. You probably have chosen to date women who are looking for someone to take care of them. I mean isn't that why most people get married in the first place? laughing...and then once they are there and their needs are not met totally by the other person they wonder why the hell they got married in the first place?

I suggest when you meet a woman you are upfront and tell her you have no interest in marrying in the immediate future and then if that is what she seeks she has the option of moving on.

That's what I say. I say looking to marry I am not your woman!

Well, crap--as usual, someone didn't give me the manual how women over 40 are supposed to act. As a result, I didn't realize that I was supposed to be desperate to get married.

Or did the rules change at 50?

yeah .. it's the women you're dating. I'm over 50 and you couldn't get me down the altar with even with drugs & a tow truck!
I dunno, maybe you're just irrestible?
I will NEVER marry again. NO WAY - NO HOW - NO BODY
EVER

Well, here's one woman over 40 who does not have any intention of getting married!!! I have 2 fantasic children and yet I've never married. So not all of us are looking for that!! There are always exceptions to the rule and I am one of them in so many ways!lol

well obviously the subject line is generalizing...but of course there are women and men whose intent is to be half of a couple and that's when they are happiest. I would think that both genders have obvious reasons for wanting to be married...just can't think of them at the moment!!! lol
there are extremists at both ends of the spectrum...let's not panic!!!

Half a couple? No way I'm single and my own person. Half a couple implies someone is desperate to complete themself through someone else. I'm a nearly 45 never married who doesn't give a bleep if I ever marry.

Savona, I love you. :banana: I can always count on your answers to entertain me.

Truth be told, I'm over 40 (way over! lol) and marriage is the last thing I'm seeking. Just about every man I've dated from POF has wanted a commitment right from the start, and I've always been the one to try to avoid it. Some have also spoken about marriage in the future - it certainly wasn't ME bringing it up.

I've actually found the MEN to be more marriage-minded than I am.

Most women around my age, at least the single ones I have met, don't have marriage on there minds as much as they have just wanting a companion.
I think that's wonderful.
Marriage is for young people with intentions of having a family.
Us old people just want to shack-up.

And some of us aren't even sure we want that! We'd deeply enjoy having someone special in our lives, but don't want to sacrifice ALL our personal space and autonomy.

Our first marriages are done so now we are looking for the Real One we want to spend our lives with. Not the one that swept us off our feet.
