We’ve all heard the old Groucho Marx line, “I wouldn’t join any club that would have me as a member”. It’s funny.
And maybe, not so funny. In the world of dating, it’s frequently true.
I can’t tell you how many slightly (or not so slightly) overweight men and women I know who say they won’t date overweight members of the opposite sex, for example.
I have one of these completely inappropriate, hypocritical glitches of my own. I would much rather date divorced men, than guys who’ve never been married. Even though I’ve never been married. I know, I know. RIDICULOUS. I’m just being honest.
I’ve never NOT gone out with a guy because he’s never been married. But when that is the case, I always question. More. Because I assume there’s something wrong with a man who’s over 40 and never been married.
All the while, I’m totally offended when people assume there’s something wrong with me just because I’m 40 and have never been married.
Anyway, I thought it would be interesting to see if this assumption is a commonly held one (at least amongst my readers). Go ahead and be honest. I won’t be offended.
