yes we are . . at least those of us who aren't caught in a self-created web of delusions, denial, and dysfunction. the toughest nuts to crack are the ones who truly believe their own monstrous BS.
Like someone else had mentioned, selfishness is a big reason why there are more singles these days.
I may be wrong, but I think one of the main reasons why there are 10 reasons and more, is because of a great lack of positive role models for a healthy relationship and/or marriage.
Doesn't it seem like dysfunctional families, are the norm these days?
hmm, is there really more dysfunction or is it just that we are analyzing things these days and labeling them? I really don't know.
then i'm an exception. the last thing i want is a woman who's more than a few years younger than me. a few years older is OK. but i want someone atthe same stage of life. there is NO WAY i'd want to have a relationship with a woman in her 20's or 30's. we'd look ridiciulous. it would not be good for her spending her prime years with an ailing codger. we wouldn't have much to talk about. having brought 5 children into the world, i don't want to become a father again at this stage in my life. why would i want to be 70 with a kid in high school? what good would that be for the kid? i love older women. i had my days of youth and young women but know when that became the past instead of an ongoing thing.
