    I recognize them. I just don't see the number that people here elude to. That is why I asked for specifics.

    It is tempting to resort to hyperbole / sweeping generalizations when we are voicing a complaint about something. IMO the ones who imply that all women are ___ don't really mean that. They probably mean that they personally have experienced ___in a lot of the women they have known.

    Although I would tend to agree with you on the hyperbole matter, there are most definitely at the very minimum a couple a couple of men on here that do indeed believe this and take every opportunity in as many threads as possible to continuously beat their drum over it.

    Their problem. I think as the years tick by hopefulness turns into hopelessness/bitterness.

    Reading this, I feel like I'm the luckiest guy around. My wife and I started dating as teens, now we've been together 39 years and married 34.

    2 couples who are our closest friends are similar. One couple started dating in high school, the others in college so it can't be that rare.

    Clearly every coin has 2 sides.

    a couple of men on here that do indeed believe this and take every opportunity in as many threads as possible to continuously beat their drum over it.

    Friend Bonnie just spent a few hours with Jake and I. She is Jakes "Momma" and loves the little guy with all her heart. Since I went blind from Cataracts, Bonnie has been the only way that I can get to Dr's appointments or to get groceries.

    We have been best friends for over 20 years and when she broke both legs, I went to her home, gathered her up and cared for her at my house for several months. I got her to all of her appointments, fed and took care of her until she was able to get around on her own. That's what friends do.

    Friend Karen is battling cancer in her gut and has had a rough time with surgery and chemical treatments. It's forbidden to visit her with this virus, but we keep in touch. Bonnie, Karen and I keep in touch and we visited with her son and Husband last week. That's what friends do.

    My most precious friends are Female but these are friendships and not relationships (boyfriend/girlfriend).

    Nothing is ever always!
    I may paint Females with a wide brush. You paint me with a similarly wide brush. According to you, I'm a man and I'm guilty as all men are!

    I've never cheated WITH or ON anyone in my life! Been cheated ON many times! That's true, but there's no slack for me! I'm painted with the wide brush, too!

    There is a perfect solution available ....................
    Put me on your IGNORE list and I'll do the same with you!
    Problem solved!

    I started out hopeless and bitter as a teenager, and quickly mellowed out once I hit my 20s. At that point I realized it wasn't going to get any worse, so I stopped worrying about it. Everything worked out.

    I’m kinda in that mode. Wife and I didn’t quite make the big 50 before she died. A few dates thereafter and I concluded I’m fine as is. I enjoy seeing the SWTs and that’s as far as it goes.
