I would ignore it. In life people will always fight to get you to live your life based on what they consider to be reality. Thats simply ridiculous. A lot of the girls on CD hardly represent the population of women you want to be involved with. I would never validate anything coming out of their mouth. Theres good quality women out there who will respect your point of views, its just not CD

Marriage rates have been declining, though I have not read any of the direct data, just the interpretation once it gets to the media.

Just because less people are getting married does not mean any one sex is boycotting it. There is just less financial and societal reasons for marriage.

It's not sexist, but women want commitment and security. If you're not willing to give that to them, then you must be an insecure man child with women issues.

Why would he have to be insecure, or a man child? That's common irrational reaction to a man's independent choice not to be legally involved with a woman.


Fact, Family court guidelines are more favorable to women. Regardless if you believe its right or wrong.

There is nothing Childish about making personal decisions based on circumstances of your environment. This may not agree with whatever ideas youve created in your own minds but the reality is it doesnt have to.

Pro Choice remember? My body/ my life.

I personally feel a lot of women want men to accept this no matter. No questions asked. Thats silly.

I know. I agree. I was being sarcastic mocking a typical response to an older life long bachelor.

People don't like bachelors because they're usually very jealous of their lifestyle. Instead they're stuck with a boring homely existence.

One of the main reasons most women want to get married so badly is that they want to lock you in before their appearance wanes with age. A woman's desirability generally decreases steadily after the mid twenties while a man's desirability often improves and has little to do with age and wrinkles.

You guys chiming in late are missing something. It wasn't the the OP wanted to remain a bachelor, he basically categorized all women as the same, hateful type of person. It was the OP's attacks on women that got him labeled a sexist--not wanting to remain single. Women don't care or are jealous if bachelors and more than men care or jealous of women who are bacholettes. No one cares about your life (or mine) other than yourself and maybe your closest relatives and friends. If you think random strangers care, you are projecting.

I beg to differ.

Currently (2009) the average age of marriage for women is 26 or 28 (depending on the source), for men 28 or 30 (depending on the source) up from 23 and 20 respectively in 1950. For second marriages (2000) 45 for men 42 for women. The overall statistics show average age for less industrialized countries is lower as is for poor/less educated people, the average age has been increasing and men are generally 2 years older than women.

So if your theory is correct that would mean women are getting prettier and stay desirable longer, wealthier and better educated women are hotter as are women from industrialized countries. And that a mans desirability is only last a few years longer than a woman's desirability.
