One question for you: Then why do I have so many female friends on online dating sites telling me a different story. Seems of the 8 of us... all met men that were looking for long term and yet all they wanted was "SEX".



THIS IS SO TRUE!!!!!!! VERY TRUE!!!!

Hey Leafchick
I run into exactly the same thing with women

Yes I am looking for the happily ever after
Yes I'd like someone to wake up next to every day, and see their smile

We are out there....Keep the faith

After a divorce I would like to be married again, but I also would like to the time to make sure that it will work. My basic thought is that I would know that I was married before I even proposed. And that does take time. Simple as that.

I want longterm love. If after a sane amount of time a wonderful woman insisted we acknowledge the isntitution to declare devotion to the purpose I'd of course do it with great alacrity.

I don;t know if this is any comfort...I myself feel as though I missed my childhood...
I was a "bad" kid...into my late 20's. I partied, was very reckless for a long tme, not considering the feelings of others to any great degree.
Now I often feel like an old man looking back. My values have drastically changed.
I would marry in a heat beat if the "one" came along. Sex...I've honestly never had to go without for any great length, but life is so much more than that...I look forward to sex with someone I'm in love with...that would be magic I think!

So, the question that begs to be asked is....do women over 35 really want to get married, or are they just kidding themselves? ;)
I do want to get married again one day...thing is I don't want to marry just to get married. I'm happy with who I am and more than willing to be single until somebody I don't want to live without comes along.

Getting married to get married is sooooo lame. I know someone who has been married 7 times just because she wouldn't have sex without getting married. If you don't work on yourself, then you'll never make any one else happy. Plus, shame on people who let the hypocrisy that sometimes masks as religion dictate life terms.

If I met someone that just rocked my world. maybe. But truthfully I would rather just live together if we clicked like that. If we wanted to have children together I would probably be very open to getting married, but most of the women I have dated the past few years have either had all they want or don't want any at all. I'm neutral on the subject.

I've been married before. I would rather just have a serious relationship without going through the hassle of getting a document to 'validate' it. Forget that...

There may be some who are just looking for a "fling" but, I for one am looking for commitment and long-term. It's the absolute best feeling in the world to provide for my partner, and without that feeling, I feel kind-of "purpose-less"

See, now, I'm honest to a fault.

I'm looking to date. And when I say date, I mean I want to 'date' until I find something that either a)makes me never want to date again, or b)makes me want to stick around for the long haul.

However, marriage is absolutely out of the question. I have no desire nor hope to marry again or to get to a point in life where I am desperate enough to marry.

Like most men, I'm an EXTREMELY sexual person. But I am also monogamous in my sexual escapades, I prefer to be with the same woman until one or both of us decide to go elsewhere.

And unless the sex is astronomical, I can't imagine sticking around very long. Lets face it, sexual attraction and compatibility are a huge thing - well, for me, certainly.

So yes, I'm looking to date, and my definition of date includes copious amounts of sex, but I won't just stop everything and sleep with just anyone. The law of attraction I tell ya, it's alive and well.

Wow, that was a bit of a rant, wasn't it? So sorry.

Maybe you should be asking yourself what you are bringing to the table. The only thing that separates an over 35 single male from one that is younger is that he has more experience and can usually smell trouble a mile away faster than a young buck.

I totally agree with iltisowner, in that there are quite a few blokes who have never married & havent had the pleasure of kids either, I for one am one of those guys. At 37, life is starting to catch up with you & you tend to start thinking that you may miss out on the other pleasures of watching your kids grow up & having fun with them, eg, kicking the ball, chasing them & whatever else fathers do with their kids in growing years.
I consider my ready for that LTR, but havent found that someone who is mad & willing enough to take me on, on the same token, am willing to try a few things out in the process as I havent had many dates or been in many relationships either (very short ones).
So, there are some legitimite guys waiting for that someone in particular, & not to mention a lot of players!

absolutely... in fact, that's all I'm really looking for. The only reason I'm not married now is that I haven't found the right woman yet (seriously). I don't continue on in a relationship for more than a year if I don't feel it's headed for marriage.

I have the money saved up; I know where to get Canadian diamonds (that was important to me) and know how I am going to propose just waiting for the pretty women that will have the honour to spend the rest of her life with me.

So the answer is yes after 40 years of doing all sorts of stuff I am now ready for marriage and want to do it.

My profile right now is set for dating, only because I might have to relocate in June of 2008. However, once that happens, hell yea I want to get married! I've wanted to be married since I was 21.

Well Leafchick.....I now live in Spain...where if a man is over 35 and has never been married...well this is NOT normal. I am talking about Spanish men not the anglophiles. When I tell people here how common it is for men in canada/u.s. to be over 40 and never married...they are very surprised. I meet anglophiles here and they all seem to be from the same mould. generally not relationship minded..but definitely sex minded. I think generally speaking, (not all) ¨Long term¨ is the bait. It´s the carrot dangling on the end of the stick. BUT, I have been married and when you meet the right one it won´t be hard work...angst, melodrama, blah blah blah.

I have turned down marriage proposals before and been close to getting married once (in a situation where I would have done the asking). Having said that though, I am also not commitment-challenged.

I suppose the answer to the OP's question in my case is that I would at some point like to but it would depend on having the right woman in my life first and the right circumstances as well.

Come live in Spain. We might be single....but oh life is so much more sunny, warm and fun here!!!!

Rubbing it in a bit with the weather now are we?

I think as long as we women are giving them what they want, why would they be quick to get married. Don't they get married for the sex anyway? In my opinion, most men are looking for sex only. Sorry to you guys who I am wrong about (I'm sure there are a few)

Yes. I'm 36, never been married, and am looking for a serious relationship that will lead to marriage by any means necessary. However, living in Vegas, it has proven difficult to meet anyone of quality, or anyone for that matter, either online or face-to-face.

Men in general and real men in paticular do NOT "get married"

They marrry somebody. Somebody with a name. And usally somebody with an adjective before than name too. eg My darling Emma. etc.
