Im dating a married woman
Every generation has an age where, consciously or otherwise, we expect to be married by. Whenever you discuss “means” or “averages,” that’s a number to represent a much broader distribution. Most of us don’t live near our parents, who can help take care of children, so sometimes it’s easier to just put off marriage/family. Some people take longer to develop the desire for marriage, or the maturity necessary to take that step. These days, the mean age at first marriage is at an all-time high: 26 for women, 28 for men. Because people wonder about anyone who deviates from the norm. So, as a single person, what happens when you meet someone who is past a certain age and hasn’t yet been married? ” Do you assume the worst, that the person is unmarryable, that if he or she were a good partner they’d be married by now? Yes, there probably is a reason for the deviation from the norm. Let’s face it: trying to manage a career and a relationship/family in modern times isn’t always easy. These expectations are based on what society is doing – the earlier the average person marries, the earlier we’re expected to marry. Yes: if someone is over 40 and never been married, they are outside the norm. Some people choose to focus heavily on their careers in their youth.However, this distribution is (somewhat) bell-shaped, in that the bulk of the population doesn’t deviate too far from the average. Marriage is a big step, and sometimes it’s easier to postpone it until you’ve done all the “single” things you want to do. Some people want marriage at a younger age, but simply lack the social skills necessary to meet the right person. Some people value long term commitment, but don’t want or need the legal part of marriage. There are plenty of people who want marriage or its equivalent, but have deep-seated fears about actually doing it.Meanwhile, my three siblings are all in relationships, and one is married.All the people I grew up with now have families of their own. Last year, I spent money I barely had on a dating agency, but the only people they hooked me up with were 55-year-olds from places like Scotland or Harrogate, and as I plan to go for a PGCE this year I simply can’t afford to travel that far, and anyway they can’t tell me there are no men in Greater London.I gave it four years and really tried to make it work, but deep inside I had no feelings for him.
So I do not get that immediate attention here in Medellin.I went to a few of their mixers, but it was a disaster – if I waited for them to approach me they thought I wasn’t interested, and if I so much as asked for their phone number they’d call me forward.I have been living in Medellin for over 5 years now.Medellin women are beautiful, and the word is spreading pretty much around the world.
