Even knowing the dismal numbers, would you remarry?


Before you answer... consider these statistics:

Mormons: 24%

Other Christians 24%

Mainline Protestants: 25%

Born-again Christians 27%

Baptists: 29%

Jews: 30%

Non-denominational: 34%


Or that age brings wisdom... 

By Age:

Boomers -33 to 52 years:34%

Builders - 53 to 72 years:37%

Seniors - 72 years plus: 18%



North East: 19%

West: 26%

South: 27%

Midwest: 27%



Asian: 8%

Hispanics: 20%

Blacks: 22%

Whites: 27%


The divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%

The divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%

Well, would you?

New Years Resolutionaries 194 Views 12/25/14

As we put Christmas of 2014 behind us, New Years of 2015 looms and with that brings all the resolutions.  


Each year, people vow to loose weight, eat better, get in shape, give up x, y or z... 


And then the big one which is about where we are... on a dating site...


The period between New Years and Valentines is a time of massive growth (new profiles) and paying customers for dating sites. People who spent all or part of the previous year (2014) are now, suddenly, dedicated to finding love.


Most regular gym rats hate the new year... all of a sudden there are lots of new people, it's far more crowded than usual, some equipment is harder to get to etc. but the good part is you know, from experience, they won't be around in 4-6 weeks.


Which brings me to my question(s)... 


How do you feel about this? Are you wary and wonder why NOW is suddenly the time to start looking? Do you just ignore anyone who's new? Do you take your profile down until after Valentines? Do you embrace the new people?

A reality check may be in order 999 Views 09/23/12

The forums and blogs are filled with women complaining about men who try to trick them, cheat them, scam them, who're tired of kissing frogs, who're wondering where the "real men" are and who're certain there are no millionaires around to spoil them.


So, I think today I'm going to vent... and this is meant nicely...


There are liars and cheaters out there and neither sex has the market on who lies the most and studies have shown that just as many women cheat as do men. This site, by virtue of its name, attracts more than it’s share of liars and cheats so you should start off wary.  Remember: Where there's prey, there are predators.


If he seems too good to be true, he probably is. If he's twice as good looking as anyone you've ever dated... stop and think.  If he seems far more interested in what you have to say than any man has ever been before... stop and think.  If he's 20 years younger... stop and think.  If he lives 1000 miles away, do you really think you're that attractive and that interesting?  I'm not saying you're not but shouldn't it be a red flag?  After all, why would such a great catch need to look so far away from home?


If you're tired of kissing frogs and expecting a prince, go back to fairy tale school because only a princess can change a frog into a prince with a kiss.  If you're not a princess, you can kiss all the frogs you want and never get anything more than warts.


Every man is a "real man", it just takes a real woman to bring out his best. If you’re constantly looking for a “real man” you need to look inside… at your choices and how you treat men.


Women who talk about what wealthy men can do for them... who want a man who will "take me out and treat me like a lady/princess" etc. are immediate turnoffs and you may as well have posted a sign saying "I'm a target, abuse me!" because any man with $2 and 1/2 days experience knows that all he has to do is dangle the carrot/carat in front of your eyes and he can get whatever he wants.


For most wealthy men, women who want to be "spoiled" are a dime a dozen and if we wanted to spend that kind of "dime", we could get someone far younger and far more attractive... unless you just made yourself too easy to pass up.  However, most wealthy men didn't get wealthy by spending foolish dimes so most of what you get are those who either don’t have a dime or those who see no value in you.


Most wealthy people I know drive normal cars, live in normal houses and do normal things... they live far from glamorous lives and never appear on "lifestyles of the rich and famous".  Yeah, most eat at fancy restaurants, but not every night. Sometimes we do have social obligations that require you to dress nicely and behave acceptably and we need to know you won't be an embarrassment. If you're not willing and able to help "our" cause (the cause we've have spent a lifetime building and of which you are a part) then you're a burden we'd rather skip you and go it alone.


We are also smart enough to know that although we're secure today, we may be broke tomorrow or crippled or face some other horrible burden and if money/lifestyle etc. is what attracts you, then when we need you most is when you will be gone... that makes you a bad investment.


Want to know the real kicker?  When you blog about your horrible experiences, any men moderately interested in you would wonder what kind of a woman makes such bad choices.  Were you truly duped or do you have a pattern of bad choices?  Will you bring drama and discord to our lives or peace, love and happiness?  When you blog about your bad experiences, make sure it’s for personal growth and not about blaming men.


My advice: Stop blaming men and take responsibility for your own choices, stop looking at his wallet and look at his heart, be realistic about what you bring to the table and make a sincere effort to understand what he needs in his life and if you can fill that need without changing yourself, then do so.
