The 10 Most Insane Comments About the Plight of the Single Lady
Wow, you guys have opinions! Some are kind and generous and wise and insightful, some are less so. But what can you expect from the Internet but variety? With regard to my recent cover story, there are more than 500 comments, not to mention the numerous emails I've received and read (thank to all who wrote). Interestingly, the majority are from men. It seems the thesis that women could be empowered to enjoy, even revel in, options other than marriage and having a family -- and might actually be in control of their own relationship destinies -- got to some of the less enlightened among them. Herewith, a collection of my favorite HOLY SHIT THE INTERNET IS SCARY comments, excerpted for your viewing pleasure:
10. The Person Who Didn't Want to Read It in the First Place
Most guys I know don't go for the kind of woman who would write this article. We like women who don't analyze trivial crap to death and expect us to listen while she rants instead of relaxing after a hard day's work with a beer and the TV.
9. The Short Man
Yup, sure enough several paragraphs into the article once again we see the 'horror' of dating a short man. As a guy of short stature that's too bad, really, for both of us. I've been single for a few years now, and have been scoffed at openly by women due to my height. I have given up attempting to actively seek companionship. I am college educated, funny, confident, own my own company and 'normal' in all other regards. If I were five inches taller I would have been married years ago.
8. The Angry, Angry Man
Women today are a joke. I watch them move their mouths and they really think they are so hot and they are so far from that usually, almost always. It is so artificial and we know it and that is why we could give a damn less.
Wakeup ladies, its not all about you. I don't even see American women as respectable any more at first thought. It is taking a lot more for guys to want to even be around most women, because they seem to want everything so handed to them without ever really being deserving usually. You know this especially if you have had the chance to travel and meet with other women outside of the city or in other cultures who have not lost their way.
I honestly avoid women a lot these days. I don't want any of their negative energy coming close to me anymore. I can have my pick when I choose. It has always been easy to pick up a date when needed. Look at this article and all the losers this author dated. If a decent guy saw her out with any these men, do you think he would ever glance at her again?
7. The Pot Who Called the Kettle
Read the article, listened to the writer's ideas. Seems to me that the writer is truly crazy. As in "psychotic and delusional." How many guys have you had sex with? And you're looking for a good man? Good men typically don't dip in the cesspool. What you got right was: you are the problem. Thank you for not marrying and having children--we don't need more generations as self-absorbed and narcissistic as you.
