Why are women over 40 so desperate to get married?Page 17 of 34    (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)

Tapping my fingers lightly on my desk top waiting with baited breath for ONE man to answer GrandmaBooBoo's question......hmmmmm? Any man? Step right up. Don't be shy.

Didn't you already answer the question in your own mind? You two make quite a pair. This is not the proper thread to ask that question or answer it.

I finally started my damaged woman thread:

Ok grandmabooboo asked me a question, she wants to know what my rental rates are.

1st hour......$200.00
2nd hour........ $185.00
3rd hour........ $160.00
Weekly rates are available upon request.
These rates do not include travel and other expenses which are additional.


LOL! how about "weekend" rates John? Do you offer frequent flyer discounts? LOL! No, really.....your rates are not unreasonable at all. MUCH, much cheaper that owning a husband! That's only $545 for 3 hours of something I can enjoy TOO....right about the same as it cost me to keep the ex supplied with health insurance after the divorce.

I was going to say that they're advertising $99 flights to Las Vegas on bookingbuddy.com, but OMG...I remembered they have things there called "wedding chapels"...so scratch that idea! LOL!

DrFred: we've seen your pathetic plea for women over 40 to prove they're undamaged by flocking to you needy guys....but we aren't buying. You could take about 20 yrs worth of lessons from a guy like John whos confidence is based on his own intelligence and integrity....and NOT how many desperate, clingy welfare moms he can attract! Women over 40 (most of us) have learned the difference between our needs...and our wants. (Desperation is linked to neediness) I'm sure you aren't able to distinguish the difference, but men like John are not intimidated by women, because their sense of worth comes from within themselves....NOT through how many women are desperate to marry them. THESE are the men that "undamaged" women adore.....men who know how to have fun, and be fun; who aren't so full of insecurities that they whine about everything a woman says, does, thinks, or feels.

And, if I may add to this. There's a difference between emotionally healthy needs and emotionally unhealthy needs. It's the emotionally unhealthy needs that are linked to desparation.

Dear John:
love your sense of humour. but most especially your healthy sense of self. And your rates are within my budget! To cut down on travel expenses could you drive?, take the Rainbow Bridge into Canada and head due east on the 402 about an hour and a half?
Signed:
An adoring " undamaged" woman ( with healthy needs) who's not desparate......

Phoebe I would take the tunnel not the bridge and I would have to stop in Windsor to see some relatives on the way. Plus I would stop in Chatham to visit my place of birth. I have to find time to spend in London, relatives there too. Oh and while I'm at it I should go to Missisauga and visit more relatives.......geez I may as well visit that hot Moonchild chick from this site during my travels. I'll have to take a few days for this adventure.

GrandmaBooBoo I have no desire to have a 3some. The thought of diappointing 2 women at the same time doesn't appeal to me.

Perhaps you were a good catch and they couldn't wait to tether you. Seriously, the women I've dated older never talked about marriage. It was the younger ones that were more interested in that. So I'd write it off as coincidence between those two women. I do think nowadays women wait later until having a family and getting married. If it were a first marriage I'd think that might have something to do with it. But if they are divorced with kids would think the wants may be different.

I don't know one woman over the age of 40 that is desperate to get married (I'm sure there is; I just don't know one) and quite a few married women over 40 that are desperate to get single.
I can tell you that I know single men over the age of 40 that are desperately searching for a wife....and many that are searching for a nympho on death row (preferably one that owns a golf course) lol.
Judging from the single/divorced over 40 crowd that I know, it seems that after a break-up/divorce it is generally the man who is prone to getting married fairly soon or having a live-in relationship (not necessarily the nymph on death row).
I also see a growing number of men over the age of 40 becoming single parents after a separation/divorce. Most seem to cope quite well while others are lost and desperately searching to find a wife/mother to take over their household.
Now in all fairness, I will add that I also know men over the age of 40 who are in no way desperate to get married.

Woohoo...I am "quivering" in anticipation of John's arrival! What to wear, what to wear??? No worries my Phoebe, we kin share darlin!

OT: The last few notes perhaps have been gibberish, but I think proves a point. Just accept each other as we are. No finger pointing, labelling as bitter. We waste ever so much time doing this, how on earth can we date and even marry if we so decide???

I am sooo confused right now!! The bulk of the female respondents in this thread have communicated that they are either in no hurry or will not marry again. Yet some of you guys gripe about that! STOP! Them not wanting to marry is a good thing damit lol!

can think of this two ways.
one she is waisting not time,if u dont want to, go one to the next one.
I dont blame her I waisted six yrs on a useless liar, so more power to her
she knows what she wants and goes for it, u dont still see her hanging around do u.

i think u are looking for someone who is not into marriage.
so u are looking at the wrong profiles. should look for hang out, dating,
other,
then u will be more suited.
to your dates.
and note u are not into marriage

Marriage? No thanks, not a requirement for me. I'm over 40, my sons are grown & I can't & don't intend to have anymore children. I don't need a legal license or a church ritual to be happy in a relationship.

NOT! Some of us are rather content with ourselves. Having someone special in our life would merely be an enhancement.
