People over 30 that are not taken - something wrong with them?Page 25 of 37    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37)

Yes. We are all on the same ride and living different living situations. Therefore why should it be
a stigma that a man, good looking over 30, has flaws. We women serve the same dish. We all can not
predict our life choices and outcomes.

I remember when I was a child attending a wedding. The woman had been married 5 times, the man had never been married.

As they were walking down the isle, I heard the woman say to the man - "Doesn't it worry you that I've been through 5 marriages?"

and he replied, "Doesn't it worry you that I've never been married?"

So, yeah, is there something wrong with people who've been divorced? Some horrible character flaw that ruined their marriage? Is there something wrong with people who've never been married? Some horrible character flaw that kept them from finding love?

Come on. Give people the benefit of the doubt. Judge them for who they are. At least wait for them to do something wrong before you decide there's something wrong with them.

Yes, there's absolutely something wrong with us.
But you'll have to come to the dark side to find out...

Seriously? Why does everything have to be a potential "red flag"? Sure, some of us are jaded, cynical, bitter. Some of us are recovering "burn victims." Some of us just haven't found the right person, or refuse to settle for less than what we feel we deserve. Some of us are content to remain single.

And some of us are optimistic and hopeful that there's a person out there who will love us and won't hold our age or our flaws against us...

Maybe, but I'm 33 and recently divorced. My wife was cheating on me so I divorced her. I guess there might be something wrong with me but I won't put up with cheaters. I guess it all depends on what that person has gone through to make them single and are over the age of 30. Right? Let me know your thoughts.

lol hey man I'm with you on that one. I leave the seat down clean up after myself all the things that ladies look for, and I'm stil single. Nothing wrong with me either. I'm 34. You're right. If women are judging that something must be wrong with us just because we're single at a certain age, I'm in big trouble. I don't look my age either. lol good thread bro..

I'm 38. I'm single basically cuz I don't want anything serious right now. I've never been married and have no kids either. But, that's been by choice. Honestly? I doubt there is a "right girl" out there. They're either too young or every guy is like their exes. I'm not perfect but, I'm not them either.

I'm 44 and single. And there is absolutely nothing wrong with me! *twitch twitch* Naw, we all have our issues. I was married for 20 years and have only been single for 5. Although I do have to say, this whole dating world sucks! Anyway, to answer the original question. Its my opinion that under most circumstances that there is nothing wrong with the person, its probably their choice to be single. But then again I'm no expert.

I'm not so sure she meant single at or after 30 as much as she meant single/never married...Sometimes I wonder why men over 40 have never been married but I don't judge them for it. But if they want kids they're gonna have to find a young filly for that, lol. YEE HAW!!

I am 53 and have several character flaws; people who are married and under thirty do not have any! Everyone knows that. Why would we even ponder this?

Nothing wrong with a man not being taken! If a woman can't see what a great catch I am then tough! It isn't my fault if a woman is picky about a man! Most are so picky that no man is good enough for them! None of the women to date never want to compromise! It is either their way or no way at all. I love being outdoors, nature, and wildlife. I spend alot of my time when not working doing that. I don't shop at stores, go to mall or movies, or go on roadtrips or vacations.

I think we are all damaged in our own, not very unique, ways. The people who are married before their 30s were just too immature to see their imperfections, or smart enough to not care about them. There was no way in hades I would have gotten married in my 20s. I was soooo young and dumb 90 percent of the time. if we all admit we are damaged then the question should be why can't we see past the damage and accept people for who they are. Maybe the worst damage is that we are all looking for perfection and this is where we should take note of all those young married couples and lean how to compromise. Except, it's hard to give up that ideal relationship in your head, my damage lies therein.

Hi

I am posting this because it was said on another message board that if a man is single and over the age of 30 and good looking, there has got to be some character flaw or some reason why he is not taken....

What is everyone elses general view on this? Do you find that there has got to be "something" wrong if someone looks in every other way a good catch, yet still hasn't settled down?


Did anyone else other than me notice the "if a man is single and over the age of 30 and GOOD LOOKING" aspect of this post?????

Notice how the poster didn't say anything about herself and why she was still single at 40 when she posted this thread??

I don't think there is anything wrong with me because I am over 30 and single. I love my best friend who is the same age I am and she has been married going on 4 times now to 4 different men. What does that say? I just think I am looking for that special someone that I havent met yet so I don't have to get divorced again. I want my best friend and a lover. Someone I won't want to kill if they are helping me or talking to me in the kitchen.

Yeah...the over 30 figure is just ridiculous, especially for men. I think most people would even agree that many men don't hit their prime in physical attractiveness until their 30s. Not to mention more money, more emotionally stable, etc.

A man in his 30s with no baggage and plenty of $$$ is what's called a GOOD CATCH.

I think a date can be terrible. I don't think this site sucks. Now on Louisville Mojo which is a dateing site that sucks. You have to pay now to be on there. There are some very rude, nasty, mean people on that site that chat and express themselves in forums.
