People over 30 that are not taken - something wrong with them?

Attention: All those who are single and have not met minimum relationship standards please report for re-education and your red flag tattoo.

SO why are you still single after 30?

I can't decide if most of the posts in this forum are trolls or many people sing the cognitive dissonance song like it's a show tune. Endless posts from both sexes of "I'm not going to settle, no way I'm settling, that (wo)man was probably no good anyway".

Anything to keep hope alive I guess.

Can you party hard like a 20yr old when you are over 30?
Posted: 3/6/2010 9:19:50 AM
A drink or two in a social setting is acceptable but "loss-of-control" partying in your mid-to-late 30's? Too much for me.

Men and self esteem
Posted: 3/4/2010 12:50:16 AM
Haha you accuse me of generalities yet leave out the fact that I also included two more categories (ineffectual and irrelevant) as well as continue to make sweeping generalizations? Prostitution services cater to men and their clients are men NOT women? Do you have one shred of proof to back up these claims or is it that "you just know..."?

Like I said (you should go back and read my post again) I watched these movies to form a basis for an argument, not something I do out of habit, and I don't know where you got "pedophile" from, I never said that, maybe some projection, hmm? Got some anger issues with men I see, maybe you need to do a little work on your issues.

The "pedophilia" comment you made is interesting as well though and I believe it also relates to the OP and the subject of Men and self-esteem. Somewhere over the past decade or so, there was a media driven hysteria that somehow morphed into a generalization of men being pedophiles, often with no basis in fact at all. This has also been a detriment to men's self-esteem as there often seemed to be an underlying mentality that "all men at heart are pedophiles" which may have replaced the oh so popular credo "all men are rapists" trumpeted by the womyn in the 70's and 80's. This is not a generalization, or some kind of personal paranoia, anyone who hasn't seen a shift in mainstream media to this position as part of an overall fear campaign has their head in the sand. Terrorists, bankers and pedophiles are the current boogeymen and are terms freely thrown around as labels on men these days, and deservedly or not they are causing damage to boys growing up.

How do you know this? How do you know there are "very few" male escorts that service women and that they are there to service "gay men"?

See, I actually watched these movies so I could have some basis for an argument that was at least based on facts and not, you know, completely pulled out of my ass. So it's not really causing me "explosive anger". I believe it was relative to what this thread was about....

But what about this?

"Nowhere near the same or as much as women have.A man can be as ugly as a toad and 400 pounds and still get the woman of his dreams just by making more money.There is nothing that an ugly older woman can do(short of extensive plastic surgery) to entice the man of her dreams to be with her and stay with her."

Is this one of your "facts"?

I am not screeching. Merely pointing out facts sir.


What "facts"? You mean your sweeping generalizations or your case-specific anecdotes? Neither of which looks like "facts" to me...

"There are only a very few male escorts people, I know this from my extensive experience in nothing and only very few men would date a woman for her money because as we all know, men are vapid creatures only concerned with holding womyn down or mentally and physically raping away their rightfull godess-given rights to have everything."

"Oh and we are still oppressed too."

Ever watch the "Women" channels? The movies? I have seen a few and every male in it is either a precious child, a rapist, or a fat, old befuddled male who either doesn't listen to the woman's ovious need for help or is somehow complicit in her persecution. Any positive male role models are strictly sidelined as being too nice (and therefore ineffectual) or irrelevant. I mean women complain about unfair stereotyping in media designed for men? Does that mean I can harp on about the "Oxygen" channel and it's constant degradation of the makle gender?

I can't tell if this is an outright troll or you are just incredibly ignorant, are you saying that male escorts don't exist or that women that are financially well off don't use that to retain a "man of her dreams to be with her and stay with her"?

As was stated before "female" self-esteem is hardly in short supply these days, women have made incredible strides and have achieved virtual parity with their male counterparts, but no, that isn't enough, like everything we do in America we have to take an idea and run with it to ridiculous, insipid lengths, well past any reasonable outcome.

It is still (and for some time to come) fashionable to hold on to the "Old Boy's He-Man Woman Haters Klub" holding women down and outright discriminating against them but it is becoming harder and harder to base these assumptions in reality.

Speaking of reality, boys are force-fed the dichotomies that were listed extensively in this thread at length.
"Be macho but be sensitive too"
"Be highly successful and driven at work but also be an attentive father and always available"
et cetera, and so forth.

So, we are going to carry on for some time in society, much like this forum, screeching about wrongs done to our specific gender and outlining specific steps the opposite gender must take that no one will listen to.

Women have been conditioned by pop culture and the media to the tune of "Mmmmm hmmm gurl, you gots to hold out for your prince! He aint no good!". So, as a result, you have American females who have been force-fed the "I'm a princess, I deserve Brad Pitt on a golden motorcycle!" mentality since they were old enough to comprehend.

I wish I could offer some bright outlook but the reality of it is there are going to be a lot of lonely men and women in the near future. Oh well, maybe next life.
