You’re done with the bar scene and you’re very much interested in settling down to have a family of your own. Well, if you’re born in 1971, you’re part of Generation X. Your friends are buying their first houses and having their first kids. Maybe he’ll still be vigorous enough to keep up with your active lifestyle. Next, since you can’t convince someone to date an older man, stop trying.
And then you, the 36-year-old woman, post your profile, and what happens? It doesn’t stop older men from writing, but at least you don’t have to explain yourself to a man who doesn’t want to hear your perfectly valid explanation. But you must understand that any woman you desire online has choices. She can go out with a cute, successful man who is 35. To find out who IS interested, try Match.com’s Reverse Match.
I always feel like asking people I am around (good friends, coworkers etc.) but I am scared it might ruin things/make things uncomfortable and basically they might tell me what I want to hear. But if you look around, there are a lot of stupid, ugly, mean people with bad taste, aren’t there?
Sure, you can put your face up on Hot Or Not or buy one of those Ugly i Phone apps to gauge your “scientific” attractiveness rating. More telling is this: does anyone that you want to date want to date you back?
It’s basic supply and demand and it’s about the only way to see what your value is.
I’m lining up books for the next 12 months, and I know you’re a book-reading bunch (that’s how you found me, right? So if you have some must-reads that would fit in the above categories, please share them in the comments!
And if you’d like to keep abreast of my reading, follow me on Goodreads: goodreads.com/Ali Binazir.
Your mind is blown because you thought that your milk was different and special and it turns out that no matter how strongly you felt about your unique brand, other people – your buyers – only valued it at a lesser rate.
