Although still do-able at age 31, the pool of guys that I can date are limited to when I was 27 years old. Does that mean I have to settle for Mr. Good Enough? The truth is, YES. If I ever want to get married, this is basically my only option. I’m not saying I should go for any loser who wants to be with me, because if that is the case, I’d rather be alone forever. Instead of a 10, I’d go for a 7 now.
My requirements when I was 27 years old:
1) Must be 5’9″ and up
2) Must earn $200k and up
3) Must be in shape
4) Must be charming, intelligent and a great personality
5) Must look good in Maigal’s eyes
My requirements now at age 31:
1) Must be 5’8″ and up
2) $100k is good enough
3) He can be a little bit soft.
4) Must be charming, smart and great personality (I can’t give this up
because I don’t want to be bored)
5) Must look good in Maigal’s eyes. (Trust me, I think I’ve downgraded
a lot on looks. I went out with a guy that one of my friends said
looked like a meat head. LOL!)
See how my requirements have shifted as my age goes up? It’s kinda sad isn’t it? But that’s what you have to do when you know your value has gone down. You are not as hot as when you were 27 years old. Maybe you’re more experienced and brighter, but do guys really want a woman who knows too much? A woman’s age is basically like a stock on Wall Street. When it’s weak, you have to sell at whatever the highest bid you can get. That also applies to guys as well when they hit 38. That’s the age when most guys start to lose their hair, get winkles, and have a gut.
The bright side is, who in life is actually a 10 anyways? Just go for a guy who knows how to treat you well. That’s the most important thing. All those guys who tell you that you are beautiful and they
really like you but still want to date around because they claim they are not ready yet, are a$$holes. They just want have their cake and eat it too. Don’t waste your time on trying to convince him to change. Move on. Your time is much too valuable. You will regret it later on if you don’t.
