Because I'm Too OldI know age is but a number, isn't that what they say? Tell that to all the single guys out there. Men who no longer want to look at an aging face. Who want a body that doesn't sag, teeth that are all there white and shiny. It's only looks you say. Isn't beauty skin deep, in the eye of the beholder. So where's the beholder who's willing to love me? Willing to commit to one women for the rest of his life, however long that may be?
Most men my age are either married, no longer interested in marriage or are looking for someone younger. So do I just settle for a man who wants to include me in his variety choices? Who's willing to provide shelter and food but nothing else? Is this all I'll get?
If it is, then I will be alone because I'm not settling. I don't want to be someone's option. I want to be their priority. I met you when you still wanted a forever partner. You wanted to share your life and resources with me. But that's not the case anymore, is it? Now it's about being with as many women as will say yes.
Well consider me old fashioned 'cause I'm not saying yes. I am holding out for a man who wants me and me alone and if that means I live the rest of my life alone, so be it. Being alone isn't so bad. You don't have to worry about anybody else's feelings but your own.
