Romantic Relationships: The Odds Against Us

I've come across some statistics about how people handle romantic relationships.  I'm not going to talk about all of them (there are a lot of them), but there are quite a few numbers there that have caught my eye. 

A large number of women want to marry  for money.  Now, guys may think that we're all gold-diggers, but seriously -- how many women actually do it??  Most women "want" to marry rich, but they really end up marrying for love most of the time.  Now, if the guy they're marrying is rich, that's a bonus.

So men fall in love faster than women... but don't guys usually pull back when the girls start falling too? Getting serious may cause some guys to run for the hills!  They want the passion, but not the commitment.  Therefore, men falling in love doesn't equal wanting to be in a relationship with the women they fall for.


I, therefore, need to curb my cougaristic tendencies,  should I want to live longer.

But as guys my age are mostly married or in a serious relationship, the other option becomes unlikely.  So I must be destined for spinsterhood.  Now, where are the statistics for the life expectancy of single women compared to married ones??


There is simply no justice.

So a warning to those women who want to marry rich, dirty, old men in the hopes of becoming a wealthy young widow -- THE BASTARD WILL LIVE LONGER, so don't get your hopes up.
