I can, too.
By the time I got my working life established it seems the ship had already sailed. I was ready to start looking at 30, and I almost never meet a single man. People marry really young here. I'm 41, and have started to wonder how culture has created this generation of single women. I know in my case, it was jammed down my throat that I could have it all. Great job, fabulous career, husband, house, kids, etc. Everybody knows that's a myth, but a lot of people believed it. I meet plenty of bitter divorced men, some with kids, a few without, but the bitterness is a common current that the dream didn't work out.
I don't deal well with being punished by a man for some other woman's trangressions. I'll make plenty of mistakes just myself, I don't need to do her penance too, know what I mean? So I've been out of the pool for quite a while, and the way things look it will stay that way.
It it happens, it happens. If not, I have a pretty good life.
