Welcome, fellow Canuck!
I'm in the category myself. I've never given up on the thiought of marriage. I'm not holding my breath till it happens. I am participating in life as fully as I can each day.
Life is a dance...when the music starts playing, I want to be up on the dance floor.

I'm sure this topic has been covered in the past but I don't check out the forums very often so I'm going to bring it up again. For the last 10 years I've heard countless comments from people I work with and even some people from Church about my single status. They range from astonishment to suspicion. The most common thing people say to me is "your too picky!". The "picky" part is that I'm looking for a man who is a practicing Catholic who accepts all the the teachings of the Catholic Church. One guy at work even implied he thought I was gay! My older single sisters have experienced similar treatment. I've noticed that if your single but have been married than opinions are less harsh; they seem to get a "pass". This week I walked past a guy I work with as he was talking to a young gal about "fixing" her up. He stopped and said that I was single too. As usual she assumed I was divorced and looked shocked when I said I was never married. He jumped in with the "she's too picky" comment.

I know I shouldn't care what others think about me but I'm only human and really am starting to feel like others perceive me as some kind of social reject. Do guys get this kind of attitude too?

You probably have to accept that you may have been too picky; I think I have also been too picky. Maybe you should regard it as a compliment from others when they say that since they can see that there is nothing wrong with you.
I remember one guy telling me that he thought that I was looking at his butt...which to me is pretty offensive since I couldn't stand a gay person looking at me. One time I even reported a gay person that was staring at me in a park to the police.
There are no Christian singles groups where I live for single people never married...we are pretty rare when there is nothing "wrong" with us since we are healthy and still looking for that special "one".

Men tend to seek out the insecure young women who don't have the ability to take care of themselves. Another point that I have noticed is being over 5' 6" is not good for a woman; most men prefer the tiny delicate, petite, women who need someone to hold their purse, ect.

You have very interesting opinions about men. It might be better for you to be a little bit more open minded.

That's hilarious!!!! Lol. How could you prove he was gay in the park and staring at you? Did he have a half top shirt and Daisy dukes on? I see guys that could be gay looking at Frank-410833 and I just take it as a compliment not that I condone their gayness and that's even if they're truly a gay man satisfying their homosexual appetite. Maybe they should be like Jim Carrey on " In Living Color " the show he got his start on and be like "Hiiiii, I'm gaaaaay!" " Does it bother that a homosexual is talking to youuuu?" "Because I'm very gaaaaaay!" So unless that happens you never know.

Any particular reason you would want to restrict participation to never-marrieds?
