a club that wouldn’t have me for a member

I crashed J-date a few years ago, and here’s another site that isn’t my tribe but I’m interested in. (Well, not the actual site, but the idea. MarriedBefore.com looks pretty cheesy and a search for men 40 to 52 near my very populated zip code turned up exactly zero (0) divorcees/widowers.)

Even if there were any nice single Dads for me, though, I wonder if the site would let a spinster on. A spinster with a terribly unfair double standard: Guy over 40 who’s never been married or in a long relationship, major red flag. Woman over 40 in the same situation, why she’s fine, just had bad luck.

I’m usually pretty fair across genders (I don’t think men should have to pay for dates unless they make a lot more than the woman, for example), but for some reason I think if a man hasn’t committed by now, he doesn’t want to or something’s wrong with him. Wow, that’s really unfair, isn’t it? No wonder I’m single: what a bitch!

    Okay, there’s something wrong with me. This is good. This is a start. I can work with this. Perhaps I should find someone who also has something wrong with them. Then we’d be “right” for each other. Already it sounds like a love song…

    Perhaps this demographic, spinsters.com?, is ripe for even more on line date profiteering! Comments, discussion? 😉 More realistically, I think it is a fair thing to think and say, but then again many of us improve and grow with experience.

    So do singles age like grapes or like a fine wine?

    I an single over 40 and definately want to get married. The key is that I don’t want ot marry just anyone. I have standards but they are not overly high. I don’t think there should be any red flags just because I have yet to marry.

    All generalizations about over-40, never-married men are hereby waived for anyone who comments on this blog. There’s nothing wrong with you guys!
