Irish bachelors.....Page 1 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Do you think there is any hope for them once they reach the age of their late thirties or early forties, any hope that they will ever enjoy the joys of a happy partnership with a female ?

Why are there so many bachelors in Ireland when there are more women than men ?

Why if they are not just simply homosexual are they behaving so assexual ?

Has the Catholic church and the typical Irish Mammy ruined our Irish men and caused them to be destined to be single forever ?

Good thought provoking possibilities there Toy boy..

Maybe they can't get it up anymore and are embarrassed...

..ouch, that would be pretty dire if true but there is always viagra !!

God now I feel sorry for all those bachelors of a certain age, I must be kinder to them and understand that they are the way they because life's been very unkind to them.

I would hate to lose my sexual libido and feel less of a woman as a result.

Take it from an American Irishman. Women no matter how beautiful are not worth the hassle. It's quite simply too much work. No woman is worth half of everything you own- no matter how good she blows. Prostitutes are cheaper in the long run, and if you can't afford it- you still have the memories.

prenuptial agreement?


Even then, depending on the jurisdiction, they can be challenged in court. Usually not considered the final word on a marriage.

Well I'm still in my early 20's, but I'm single by choice, have been for over a year, and it's primarily because I can't find a woman who to put it bluntly hasn't been banged by every guy that I know, and whose life doesn't revolve around drinking till the point of puking and then continuing to drink again.

I enjoy a drink as much as the next person, but it's maybe 3-4 times a year I get completely wrecked, just to let the hair down so to say, and it usually is still a great night. I'm not a fan of drink/fighting culture, and I don't have time for cheaters.

Also the pressure of being expected to already be in a relationship that is leading towards kids/marriage by about my age, is definitely a turn off. You might find love when you're 16 or 60. No way to be sure till it happens.

Im 23 going on 50 lol so my viewpoints might be at least a bit valid when talking about the older doooods.

The Irish are supposed to be famed for their ' art of conversation' ar they not?, if by today you find yourself in a predicament , dont make excuses be more proactive and make conversation.
You dont have to 'chat him up' but you can open conversation, as I fnd that men are a little coy sometimes but open up in a civil conversation.

So go on show em who's boss!

Why are there so many bachelors in Ireland when there are more women than men ?


It’s a good question. It would be interesting to see some studies on the question, to see if it were actually true.
I suppose traditionally we had the bachelor farmer; a lonely creature unable to find a mate because all the available lassies were in the civil service in Dublin. Fr Horan in Knock addressed that problem with his Knock Dating Agency in the 70’s (a commendable effort I might add).
Then of course in the 80’s we had the Divorce Referendum’s. One reason they failed repeatedly was that farmers were told that they would loose half their properties to their usurping wives, should they sanction the proposal.
We also have a judicial system that is prejudiced in favour of women when it comes to dividing assets when there are problems within marriage. (I know this is controversial, but the argument does have some merit).
There is I believe a tradition in Ireland, that it’s somehow ‘cute and cunning’, not to allow women undue control over a man’s life. Given some of the reasons outlined above, this is perhaps understandable although social circumstances do seem to have improved slightly in the past decade. Most people of both genders have jobs (or at least recently had jobs), so property is becoming less of a divisive issue. In fact more single women now seem to have property than men (this is not a claim, just an impression of mine).
The idea of Bachelorhood is engrained on the Irish male subconscious, and will need time to be replaced by more appropriate adaptive reasoning that concurs with contemporary social circumstances.
I have often heard that there are more available women than men in Ireland. My question is – how come all the nice ones are already in relationships?

wow, what a bitter person you are. I hope you don't let your bitterness keep you from meeting the right person for you. We women are not all out to take half of what you have. For instance I could take half of all you have and it still wouldn't amount to a quarter of what I have. I will pray that your heart is healed. Maybe you might want to check out men since you are so anti- women. Good luck.

^^^ uh oh....I think you completely misunderstood Vedin there haha

You're right of course Des..I am crazy, I think there are equal amounts of men and women in Ireland and the average age of the population is 33.

There is I believe a tradition in Ireland, that it’s somehow ‘cute and cunning’, not to allow women undue control over a man’s life. Given some of the reasons outlined above, this is perhaps understandable although social circumstances do seem to have improved slightly in the past decade.

Ahhhh...the definition of 'cute whorism'..thanks for that.

Aye, that's the problem in a nutshell...c'mon all ye Irish men get your skates on and hurry up and evolve...us women can't wait around for you for forever to catch up with us !!!

Hmmmm!...(thoughtfully scratching my head)………….OK , sounds like a great deal to me! A spring wedding would be lovely sweetheart!

Thanks Miss Grundy for the support.
For -Winners 123- benefit; my previous post was an explanation offered, for the phenomenon of Irish bachelorhood. It was not an indication of my personal preference.

oh,... laidback, ouch!!!lol!! That was a nice one. As an american, who has lived in your wonderful country, I am surprised at the attitude towards women. Except for the man walking down the street in Waterford who spit on me and my new born son and called me a ****, for no apparant reason, I would say most Irish men are warm, polite, and full of hospitality( Maybe it was the beer in the pub, me singing blues on stage and my big boobs that made them that way) but I fell in love with Irish men and that hot accent. Thats why it is so sad to hear some of you bash females. Please don't crush my dreams.
