By our late twenties many of us did end up reconnecting with our first love, or met men of a similar age who were still young enough to want to match and hatch!
But for those who didn’t, life is increasingly complicated – and infuriating.
The assumption seems to be that it is our fault that we can’t find “him”. Don’t wait. Mr. Right can turn into Mr. Wrong overnight: there are no certainties.
And we wonder why men are afraid to commit, when women are depicted as hormonally charged sperm-bandits interested in nothing beyond the urge to have a child!!!
“In theory I’d like a family,” says one. “But it doesn’t feel urgent and in the meantime I have a great life with plenty of sex – all on my own terms.Love has sort of disappeared from the menu! And yes, now I’ve learnt that I can, I mess women around in ways I’d never have done in my twenties.”
There is another option, of course!!! And that is that the whole generation of single man-boys starts behaving like men.
They sometimes love their eggs “unfertilised”
Believe me; I have studied single women!
They are not single through want of trying!!
