Women: why you are not married

Excellent article from Tracy McMillan. Very funny. A must read.
She writes: "But I won't lie. The problem is not men, it's you."

That doesn't mean that you won't fall into either category. You probably just lucked out and found somebody who puts up with your bs....just saying.

Re: Women: why you are not married

Hilarious!

The best advice I ever heard was "if you want to get married... stop looking." Be content with yourself, make yourself happy, decide that if it happens it happens and become self sufficient. This makes you more attractive (and a much happier person).

Every woman I've met who was happy with herself and wasn't looking to get married ended up hitched a lot quicker than those desperately seeking someone to 'make them happy'.

Re: Women: why you are not married

I couldnt stop laughing at this part:

"Because ultimately, marriage is not about getting something -- it's about giving it. Strangely, men understand this more than we do. Probably because for them marriage involves sacrificing their most treasured possession -- a free-agent penis..."



Ace!

Hey, that woman has been stalking me!

But then, I don't want to get married, so I can continue being a selfish, slutty, shallow, insecure b*tch...

Dear Einstein,

Didn't you come up with the law of attraction?

You're missing a step. Someone also has to want to marry you!

Re: Women: why you are not married

you're of course right but to get married one has to compromise and maybe that's tough for some ladies (and men)
