Of course, single men, especially long term men, are often considered second rate, objects of mockery, even losers and pariahs by so-called independent women who feel no hesitance to bash men and fixate on them. And despite their "liberated" condition, these particular women can't seem to stop talking about us, and living their too-busy lives worrying whether or not prince charming will show up at their doorstep with movie star good looks, and a bag of credit cards to boot.
As much I as I liked some female attention the past, I find as a grow older, that it's not what's cracked up to be if you have to deal with the ever present heavy duty baggage surrounding the bargain.. And with all the anti-male bias in the media and laws place on us, there's something else to consider:
I am still baffled at all the women who seem to expect men to live on a steady diet of hatred and man bashing, and somehow magically metabolize this toxic diet into "love" for women and a desire to see good things come to them. When I work real hard, I can make the anger cold and take no joy when bad things happen to women, simply regard it with indifference. When I hear a woman whine about being victimized, I simply tune her out and go elsewhere. ----Zenpriest
With all the bluff and bluster American women give off, it's curious that they rarely acknowledge that their attitudes and mistreatment towards men and their questionable characters may contribute to why men are so reluctant to get involved, whether it's dating up to marriage and children. True, some men will never learn; fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me. But I can't bring myself to hate them, but sometimes, rest and retreat from them has brought peace of mind rather than loneliness and depression. After all the times of hearing, "maybe YOU should look inside yourself to see what's wrong and why you have issues," isn't it interesting that they might afraid of doing he same thing?
