I really want a relationship similar to all those in my family and social circle have – no more than a 2-3 year age difference. Am I going to have to settle for a man 10-20 years older than me and have a lackluster sex/love life? Surely there must be men who come from a similar background (i.e. It’s just going to require more effort on your part.
that spouses should be from the same generation so that the relationship will succeed for the long term). It’s also going to require that you ask yourself why, at 38, you’re still single. First, learn to accept the reality that a 38-40 year old marriage minded man is going to want someone a good 5-7 years younger than him if he wants kids. A 40-45 year old man who’s not interested in having children is going to want a woman who isn’t dead set on having kids. The guys who wink or e-mail me within minutes of logging on.
But my height has only been as much of a problem as I’d let it be.
Call me old school, but the idea of meeting strangers online and discussing things with them just doesn’t click me. I’d be inclined to publish highlights but that wouldn’t do this piece its proper justice. Noted blogger, Moxie, has written a powerful message to women in their late 30’s: take responsibility for your life.If you’re not 6 feet tall or taller, then you may as well just resign yourself to a sexless life of Napoleon jokes.Of course, short is relative; what we consider “average” height varies depending on geographic locale and someone who’s 5’6″ would consider someone who’s 5’9″ (the average for American men) to be lucky.
