The Exodus…Are men are giving up the chase?
Legions of men across the nation are folding up their tents, are quitting the Dating Game, and are going home to Bachelorville. They are resigned to a lifetime of single, solo, solitary- man- time.
Talk to Single Men of an Age: The report is in: Some men readily admit say they are victims of excruciating divorces…followed by years of disappointing experiences on the dating post divorce scene.
The readers have spoken and say: A lot of divorced men 50+ try dating again… many after hiatus of 10 or 20 or 30 years. Many lament that dating today is so fast and foreign – they are having a hard time getting a leg up.
Some men simply say dating and the chase isn’t worth the bother. They say “the dating game” is time consuming and too high maintenance. They claim can’t remember the pace – what comes first? Greg M said “When you were once a “10” and you wake up single – 25 years later – you realize, uh oh – you are 20 pounds heavier, balding, have grown children and 4 grandchildren. The hot red sports car morphed into a mini van -decades ago… How can you possibly still think you are a “10” and on top of your game?”
And, what is your game? Solitaire?
Yoga instructor and Nurse practitioner, Cindy, 27, reports that the older men she runs across in bars are her father’s age. She and her coterie call the older guys ‘Salty dogs’ and ‘A Free Dinner.’ That’s cold.
This guy says: You Otter Know Better
Tall, dashing and handy, Clive said he had given up on women.
He said women are like otters… that they band together, are happy to be in one another’s company, travel together, dine together and have no need for male companionship.
They simply float down the river of life, happy little ottters. No boys allowed.
What do women say? Readers write in to say they are initially daunted ~ then exhilarated ~ by being Suddenly Single and entering the new world of DATING AGAIN…
Others, blindsided by a classic divorce debacle – throw in the towel and are recovering…renewing energies and getting a new lease on life.
The Exodus may be in biblical proportions~in some cities…
San Francisco has to be the exception.
