Any single man in their 30s also has enough rejections from women to fill a notebook that could turn into a screen play.
After a while, men become inured to a woman’s dismissal, which ironically makes them more attractive because of an added level of confidence, that leads to better dialogue and approachability.
She’d come watch my tennis matches and I’d take her to Mc Donald’s afterward for some hot apple pie and Mc Lovin. Or perhaps the perception starts in the 7th grade where we start snapping one too many bras.
Or is the supply shrinkage a decision by women to stubbornly continue to refuse dating younger men?To answer these question, I surveyed roughly 25 men and 25 women ages 21-45 to get their viewpoints. With 10 years of savings and a career he is proud of, 35 year old men are feeling confident.Even if we find wage parity between the sexes, biological parity is still a long time off, so it makes sense that the scales will always be tipped slightly in favor of an older man.But true compatibility has never been as simple of an issue as biology or social construct — and when it comes to what factors can make a relationship work, age really ain’t nothing but a (meaningless, random) number.By the time you’re in your 30s, you’re able to buy a comfortable car and a property to call your own provided you’ve been saving and working since college.
It doesn’t mean you have to buy these things, but just knowing the fact that you can provides a 35 year old man a wealth of confidence.A 38 year-old man can have no qualms about starting a relationship with a 26 year-old woman and possibly having a baby in 4 years — when she’s ready.A 38 year-old woman who wants to have kids doesn’t have that same luxury of time.Karen was a 17 year old junior, and I was an incredibly good looking and intelligent 16 year old. This is exactly what my mom told me every time I brought her cupcakes.The rejection was devastating until a bright light named Stephanie joined my high school as a freshman.Which means that I can date anyone from 38 years-old to 20 (yeeeesh.) and still be considered normal.
