This is spot on.

I used to work at a cafeteria and one time the manager put me on the pizza station. It was struggle making them without wanting to puke but luckily I only stayed there for 1-2 weeks.

67% actual divorce rate, 70% of the time filed by her.
get a prenup guys.
I wish there was a way to tell him he can trust me. The only good reasons I would actually file for divorce is:
1) He cheats (once a cheater always a cheater)
2) He has hit me once, dare spat in my face or keeps on verbally abusing me
3) He has been using drugs or becoming an alcoholic/constant gambling

Otherwise, I don't really demand too much. I think those are fairly good reasons.

When she loves you for you and not what you can do for her.

At least 50% of my male friends are ready for marriage (waiting for the girl). Some have been for quite awhile. I met quite a few guys in college who were ready then. They exist in the real world.

And Vice Versa of course.

So, let's see --
You don't want to/can't cook, but you are a picky eater. Basic foods like pizza make you want to puke.
Not much of a housekeeper, or something.
You don't seem to be terribly into guys, but you want one anyway.
You don't want kids, you are just "waiting for your eggs to die" (a uniquely sad way to describe fertility)
You say you are intelligent, but you don't have scintillating wit, and your written English is passible at best.
You are in school for "turism", which is recession-prone, and the haven of low-paying hourly jobs.

You want to be married -- why? This is just a goal, like running a marathon or losing 20 lbs. You just need a person who qualifies as a guy, with a pulse.

Look, just post all your stuff on Match.com and say you're "marriage-minded". Probably someone (maybe in need of a green card) will respond. Problem solved.

But here's your caveat: marriage is, in my opinion, a much better deal for men. For women who don't know what they're doing, or don't care about providing a 2-parent home for children, it can resemble indentured servitude. If that is okay with you, have at it.

You are kind of a "meh" candidate, sorry. These days, incredible, amazing women are "snagging" mediocre or worse men, if they want to get married. That's the way the world is now, sis.

Note: You should've said:

"Don't worry girl! There's someone out there just waiting to have you as a wife! Don't give up! He'll come to you when the time is right!!!"


....Make more friends this way.

haha, my friends count on me to tell it like it is, and not sugar-coat it.

Anyway, I did say that. There's probably someone on Match.com looking for this person. shrug. who knows.

I was being sarcastic. Yes, there's probably someone on match.com looking for everything. LOL.
