Women may feel torn between their experiences, their careers, and the biological need they may begin to feel to find a life-partner who can help them raise children.
In a study titled “Good genes, Good providers, and Good fathers: Economic Development Involved in How Women Select a Mate,” researchers found that the most important factor for choosing a potential husband was whether or not the women perceived him to be a good father-figure for their future children.
However, many men maintain that physical attraction is immediate for them and that they could not grow more attracted to a woman over time.
This is different than a woman’s ability to become attracted to a man over time.
I have tried a combination of online dating, speed dating, professional singles events, volunteering, happy hours etc. I thought that online dating would be great since you are essentially pre-screening people for dates.
This works quite well for the procreation of the species.
One, that younger women are no longer interested in dating men who are even just slightly (3-5 years) older than them and sometimes want to date men 5-10 years younger then them. Alas, the women with whom he wants to get serious are 27-34.
Two, women seem to be content in the fact that they are independent and self-sufficient and have a career, family and friends that fulfills them and don’t seem to be interested in truly finding a relationship. This gives men time to court, fall in love, travel together, move in, get engaged, and enjoy a few years of childless marriage before starting a family.
I am told that women want to settle down and have kids, etc., but their actions seem to be to the contrary.
At singles events, women come in groups and are reluctant to talk to men.
