8 reasons why New York women canít get a husband
New York Post ^ | March 12, 2014 | Jane Ridley

Posted on 03/13/2014 10:30:55 AM PDT by george76

Last year, Susan Patton, a Princeton grad and the mother of two sons at the elite college, outraged feminists when she wrote an open letter to the Daily Princetonian telling female students to find a husband on campus before they graduate.

The red alert — which argued that these Ivy League college girls “would never again be surrounded by this concentration of men who would be worthy of you” — went viral with more than 100 million hits.

...

even in the dog-eat-dog dating jungle that is New York, there is hope for single career women between the ages of 22 and 35 (yes, that’s her cutoff) who also want marriage and babies.

“These women are spinsters-in-training, but they can turn it around

The real problem is an unwillingness to stand on their own two feet. It’s not like they’re in a position to ‘be taken care of’ since for women that means a rich doormat who is willing to be a new ‘daddy’ for their spoiled wishes.

I dunno.

At the risk of being flamed, a lot of men create a lot of baggage for themselves when they sleep around and it ends up being one big mess.

Well, a lot of the girls have been let down by their families. I can’t say I’m surprised.

The real issue here, to me, is that a lot of girls have been taught that they have to rely on themselves (and as shown by divorce statistics it’s a natural lesson) and I wonder if having to grow up too fast has a lot to do with it.

I think there is a truth to that. My daughters had to grow very quickly when the spouse crashed and burned with alcohol...and continues to this day.

However the oldest married at 24, the 21 year old is traveling the world in missions and looking. The son is looking for the right girl. The youngest is something else.

If I wasn’t at work I would post that feminist in your face meme.

real women want a nice man who will treat them right and they will treat right.

And they despise women who found that

Sarah Palin is exhibit A

the guys are coming aren’t completely blameless either that is why younger women are going for men older than them.

I want a guy I can treat right and who will treat me right. I am not some snotty feminist and I had a feminist hypocrite for a stepmother. So no feminist loving here.

Why be so cruel?

“the guys are coming aren’t completely blameless either that is why younger women are going for men older than them.”

It’s too bad since I think those of similar age should be married.

Guys should just be single then wait until they are 35 and find someone younger unless you can be sure that she is a good catch.

Seriously, dont let women think they are made of gold, and that you cant live without them. Make them desperate for once and maybe they will get some sense. Enjoy your money and freedom while you are young. Age favors men.

I agree there; I wonder how many of these women having problems finding nice men are the ones with almost as many lovers as Lindsay Lohan.

I will give them a reason. See me? No? That’s why. I LIVed and worked in NYC for years and never received a glance from one of these “girls.” I was too ugly, too short, too bald, too Jewish, too hairy, not the best dresser, dont have a 6 figure income. Even though I could carry on an intelligent conversation, you “girls” were looking for George Clooney.

Well, I was not Clooney. I met a pretty girl in a bar, and while she had no interest in me, I kept her engaged long enough to get her number and get a date. She outright told me she was humoring me and we probably wouldn’t get past drinks.

That was 25 years and two children ago.

Want some advice? Stop being superficial.

I wish men would stop the superficiality. I have a beautiful overweight daughter who would probably be any man’s dreamboat wife, she is intelligent, attractive, funny, devoted, kind and beautiful both inside and out.

American men don’t give her a second glance.

Why?

1. They are too ugly
2. They are too pushy
3. They don’t know when to shut up
4. They are feminists
5. They don’t know how to treat a man
6. They don’t have social skills
7. They have that New York nasle twang
8. It’s just too complicated in NYC

My experiences with women from NooYawk lead me to conclude at least these four reasons may be to blame:

1. The shrill, whiny, nasally voices.
2. High maintenance costs.
3. They never shut up.
4. Too many think Maureen Dowd is the greatest writer ever published.

“Wow, I am sure Boston is similar.”

Reminds me of the scene in the movie Ted — Couldn’t watch the whole movie...but I did see this scene:

Ted: Look, all I’m sayin’ is that Boston women are, on the whole, a paler, uglier sort than women from the else where’s of life.

John Bennett: They’re not that bad.

Ted: See, the fact that you have to say; ‘they’re not that bad’, means that they are that bad.

New York City (Manhattan or Brooklyn) is not a normal place. Its like a giant university campus. Driven and motivated people go there for a period, are focused nearly totally on themselves, live in tiny, expensive boxes, are surrounded by brain-dead leftists and their ideas and lifestyles, and expect to leave eventually after gaining something (a career, money, whatever)

You don’t go there to meet normal, well-adjusted people with whom you can expect to spend the rest of your life.

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww, all is forgiven!

If men didn’t sleep around so much, they wouldn’t be so bitter and so reactive about dealing with ‘headcases’ that they hook up with all the time and I am certain that they are as much part of the problem.

I frankly do think that men need reasons (like for example Jodi Arias) to understand the reasons that abstinence is best. To be honest, I believe that men really need to get the real nature of women pounded into their heads and also start showing more respect for themselves.

It’s not the fault of women that men are the ones hitting on women (except in the case of lesbians), or that women have sex with them, or that women want to bond with them beyond sex. It’s not right that men complain about no decent women when there are plenty of men out there wasting their twenties with the very women they complain about.

Flamed? Not at all. You just need to be told in the gentlest terms possible that you don't have the slightest idea what you're talking about.

Seriously, though, you're right in that people shouldn't be sleeping around like they are. It's unhealthy in every way. However, the main thing to consider is that the nature of men hasn't changed, in that they always wanted to sleep around throughout history, but few had that luxury.

What has changed is women. Women now give that stuff away like it's week old bread at the Wonderbread factory. They can't give it away fast enough and to enough guys. What convinced them to do that? FEMINISM. Well, and all of the other ridiculous "isms" that have taken root in our society largely since the doped-out hippies of the sixties became hell-bent on defecating on every single cultural value that made Western civilization possible. It didn't start with them, but they were the first generation to embrace it wholeheartedly.

So now we have culture where a young girl's greatest aspiration is to be a whore just like the girls she sees on TV. Miley Cyrus is the role model. You want a good laugh (or good cry, depending on your perspective)? Go look up "Belle Knox interview" where you'll be delighted by the grand intellectualism of a young girl who decided to go into humiliation porn in order to empower women and promote feminism. Then you'll begin to understand where all this madness has come from.

Texas women are the antidote to NYC women:

1. They are beautiful, inside and out, and it comes from their love of God.
2. Rarely are they pushy.
3. They know when to allow someone else in the conversation.
4. They are self-reliant, yet possess a quiet self confidence that pi$$es off feminists.
5. They know how to treat their men right.
6. Their social skills are finely honed.
7. They speak with a lilt that comes from that beautiful Texas drawl.
8. They keep things simple by not sweating the small stuff.

Just my opinion from living in Texas over 30 years, and lucky enough to have snared a Texas girl to be my wife (over 25 years).

The women of our species do the choosing, men react.

It’s really simple

If women choose to screw around with players & thugs and ignore nice respectable men, men are going to be players & thugs.

If women choose to not screw around with players & thugs and go for nice respectable men, men are going to be nice & respectable.
