Nope, I married a great guy and we're best friends. He's also very good looking and has a good job.

Life is definitely better with company.

Find someone your own age who can be a friend and companion.

Forget the looks thing. After 60, everyone except the plastic surgery addicts starts to look like hell one way or another and has some physical problems. Even the plastic surgery addicts look really wierd with their overly done lips and botox stares.

Then there are the pathetic ones. The ones who try to dress and act 30 years younger. You know the men who used to pride themselves on being players and studly and the women who used to strut around like beauty queens and now just strut around with too much make-up and pruned up skin from too much tanning.

Most of those beauty queens - both men and women -- are not aging well or gracefully.

After a certain age, you should be looking beyond appearances and waistlines and into character.

Yes, and that certain age should be 18.

My standards are dropping everyday.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30814020


Mine are going in the opposite direction.

I was close recently to having a GF, then realized just how hopeless women are (sorry ladies but its true), and accepted that it is not worth the effort/time/money/energy.

Women need too much attention.

Would you rather be alone? Or would you rather be with someone that you are not that crazy about?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30814020


Not sure because I married up.

My husband on the other hand....... I'll see if he has a second to answer your question.

My standards are dropping everyday. I'm a male by the way. How many of you have done this and how much did you drop your standards? Was it worth it?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 30814020


I forgot about "standards" as I eventually realised applying my stupid filters just made me look like a judgmental prick to women.

I focused on meeting a few of my own standards and being a better person - suddenly I had my pick of the fish and married a woman who exceeded my expectations in every way.

Stop focusing your judgments on others and instead do some self work. Make yourself attractive to the women you want with some hard work and honest introspection.

A GUY did this???


No way!

You mean a guy who didn't just drop out of his momma, expecting to snag a supermodel?

Re: How many of you drastically lowered your standards with a mate just so you wont be alone in old age?
Hey, you all need to wake up! I am divorced 23 yrs ago! Found a friend from my teenage years when I was 16; we three couples were good friends, and travelled together everywhere. Haven't seen her in just over 20 yrs; asked her out after my seperation of 6 months, she said yes! We had a fight the last time I seen her when we were 16, about something I can't even remember. We have been together since about May/91. She is the most loving, caring, helpful and tolerant woman I ever knew! And, yes, she plays Bingo once or twice a week! I love this woman, and we never argue, fight, or whatever cause eachother any grief! I actually bug her to get her dander up or whatever; and NADA! she is just a wonderful woman;
found out about 41/2 to 5 years ago, she has developed Parkinson's. The tight narrow stride, the right arm not swinging when walking; and the hand shake. Yes, she is on medication, but, I know eventually she will get worse with this disease. I will be by her side as long as can be; she is going to be 61 in March; and she is still working fulltime in a local senior's care home as long as she can. I am very proud of her, and love her very much! We are not married, and have lived together for 22 years this coming Feb. 1st. We live our own lives, but mostly together always. I am the one that never goes anywhere. She loves a bingo game here and there. Then we do travel periodically to visit family. I stay home always, cause I am happy to be here, where I could have on skid row many, many years ago, while on Child Support, and an Evil Ex wife whom thinks money grows on trees! Took 7 years to get this straightened out, and deleted, times I was ordered to pay 250 dollars more than I brought home in pay!
Evil! I found the Judge was friends of her parents; He was swifltly removed and a new Judge was employed, then I won my case, being my own lawyer. The Bastard wouldn't evern let me speak, and slammed the Gabble down with another 200 dollar added to the previous! Seven f'n years of Hell and You know not! Every dollar earned or more taken, garnisheed, etc, by Judge or the CORRUPT LAWYER! The bitch, I beat her in court on my own, after many nights or three months of doing my own research and typing my own Court Papers and filed them! I won; long story short! Fight for your life I say! or they will F You! I love my partner, she is the BEST! Love the one your with!

That's nice, but I never called them landwhales except for this topic I'm giving a breif description of how bad it is for guys out there. Of course, if I used another term then you would never of answered the post, because you have no other point.

Re: How many of you drastically lowered your standards with a mate just so you wont be alone in old age?
I have done this until I realized I actually don't give a damn about being alone.
It was the society/media who tried to tell me, only if I mate I'd be a whole human being.
Well, I listened deep inside me and figured that I'm one of that guys who get along better being alone. And there's nothing wrong with it. SOme of us just are that way.

BTW, here's a video of a guy who probably lived most of his life alone; and he's able to handle a life in the wilderness and lives self-sufficient at the age of 81.
How many guys that have been married or been chasing women all of their lifes are even alive at that age?



Also, have you ever wondered why monks get so old although they don't - and aren't even allowed to - mate?
This is the key to real satisfaction and a long healthy life.
