Sorry, and I know you can't seem to understand this BUT being a single, confident, content woman who has lots of interests is FAR preferable to saddling oneself to a jackass who may negatively impact your life. Been there, done that, would never do it again.

Bitter? No, I don't think so! The bitter ones I see are the married women whose husbands look admiringly at us or who see us doing exactly what we want to do while they are bound to their less-than-stellar men. I belong to a social group of single women over 30 and we actually have MARRIED women joining us for social events because their husbands are giant bores.

However once I got to know them I noticed they are control freaks with compulsive disorders. or jsut plain old crazy. have any guys had these same experiences?

To maintain beauty requires a lot of work for women. Most guys do not fathom how much time they spend worrying about/maintaining themselves. I mean try to think of how much time they use just getting ready to go out... and thats just for one night! They work at this round the clock! Its dieting, shopping, exercising, tanning, etc etc etc... how are these women supposed to find the time to worry about what they want or what it is they really need to make them happy??? I mean they have to get ready for tonight

Over the year, thats 1000 guys. Even if she WAS interested, its not possible to commit to that.

She has to filter those guys out even to function on a daily basis.

These women don't have issues I believe. In fact, if you talk to them correctly, these women can be nice. Guys are generic; a dime a dozen. They get drunk and hit on girls, which is linear and predictable. women love the attention and thats about it. the key thing, and the difficult thing is to be different and interesting compared to the rest of the pack.
And the funny part is that while those women complain about being bombarded, in a few years they'll be complaining about the lack of attention and how guys are chasing after younger women.

I am acquainted with some women who range from very stunning to beautiful to pretty to cute. The cute ones get a lot of dates. They are asked out often. Guys seem to feel comfortable around them. But the more beautiful and stunning ones aren't asked out nearly as much.

I'm not sure why but I speculate that a lot of guys automatically think these women are taken; they just assume they've got boyfriends already. Or that they are so attractive, they are a little bit out of their league. And I've watched some guys at work approach and show interest with a pretty woman, but they are so obviously struck by how she looks, that the woman getting the attention just doesn't take the guy seriously. Some women don't feel much interest in a guy who just seems to like them for how they look. And some of them are shy in spite of their beauty, so guys often think they are a little aloof or stuck up.

My advice would be figure out if you like such a woman for other traits besides just her looks, and if you do, don't hesitate to try to get to know her or ask her out. She may be happily surprised that you did.

You have some learning to do. Being alone doesn't necessarily mean being lonely. I prefer my alone time, because I like myself ... a lot!
