• A study I read about today talks about how many women that are not married feel a lot of stigma and pressure in today’s society in many ways. Some call it a “spinster” syndrome, and I didn’t even know what that was until I looked it up on wikipedia. Whoa, seriously?

    I knew there were issues and pressures on occasion in today’s society when it comes to marriage and kids. I have engaged in discussions on social networks about how it is annoying to both men and women when we are single, not married, and have no kids in some situations. It almost feels like total disrespect when people start showing baby pictures at work and we have nothing to add to the conversation.

  • A recent video notebook entry from “Don’t call me a cougar” Katie Couric talks about the plight of successful single women, and calls the current jobs situation in our country a reason for a “mancession” – A few of the highlights of her “mancession notebook video” entry that appeared on cbs news:

  • Dating Stories 15.01.2010 Comments Off on Cougars and MILFs dating younger men becomes more mainstream

    So there has been a movement the past couple of years to name older women in the dating scene cougars, especially when they are looking for younger men, or younger guys were seeking older or more mature women. I had thought we were all going to stick to the word MILF, but I suppose cougar is a better choice for several reasons.

    A news story found via yahoo, and reported by the AFP has a headline

    Skewed China birth rate to leave 24 mln men single

    It seems that China’s population limits of one child per family along with the cultural preference of having male children instead of female children, so they can carry the family name and I assume be stronger and earn more money or resources, is set to backfire in the next decade.

    From the article:

    Researcher Wang Guangzhou said the skewed birth ratio could lead to difficulties for men with lower incomes in finding spouses, as well as a widening age gap between partners, according to the Global Times.

    One night when I went out with an ex girlfriend and her friend, I thought we may end up in a threesome sex adventure before the night was over. Things started well, they both knew we were all relatively single, all of us were dating around, and we all got along. They were good friends and comfortable flirting with each other and me. I knew they were both bisexual to some degree and they both appeared to enjoy my company, so we went to a few places around town that sort of turned into a three way date.

    So a date at the movies sounds like an easy no brainer, it’s been part of the American heritage for many years, but a date at the movies is not as simple as it looks in the movies.

    Tonight was a great night for a movie date, and for several reasons. First off it was an easy choice since there a new film out that we would both enjoy seeing. That takes out the whole “let’s barter about which movie to see”. Often it’s a choice of something the girl is going to enjoy and the guy will be bored with, or visa versa. Tonight that was not an issue. Twilight was still playing, and we both wanted to see it.

    The past couple of weeks I have been falling in love again. It’s been a while. I’ve been dating and having some really good times with several women, but one has really caught my heart of late. She is great, fun and oh so beautiful. She has the look that keeps me gazing at her. Today I am reminded of some of the down sides of falling in love, it hurts sometimes.

    I never saw this coming. Yeah, she’s hot, but not my normal type. I know I am not her normal type either. Putting aside the looks stereotypes, could we be a really good match? It’s quite bizarre. There are so many things that I love about her, and things that normally turn me off or have me running the other direction, give me pleasure.

    One night I found myself with company unexpected. She was beautiful in a way that I am not normally attracted, and she was not afraid to be near me. I found it quite unusual that she was so calm and she talked to me. I thought I was going to be picking up another girl that night, I had already made plans to spend time with, but I couldn’t take my eyes off another who was calmly hanging around and joining in the conversation.

    This is a story that I am going to learn from. One night I went out with an old flame and her friend thinking that the old flames were extinguished and I could pursue her friend without any issues. Thing wre nice and cordial until after a few drinks I asked her point blank if she had any issues with me having sex with her friends.
