I have found most unmarried women in their 30s to be very problematic, in the office they are prima donas, in relationships, they are manipulative, tag me whatever you can but if you are in your 30s and unmarried, a red flag goes up in my head and working together or knowing them for a period of time actually reveals they usually have ISSUES.
Someone said this in the comment section of a post on RML last year. I'm curious to know if you guys agree with this. I mean, it's a comment I would easily disregard but after an encounter I had earlier today I realized that several people feel this way about women over 30 who are yet to be married.
Another indicator is that single men are discouraged from dating women over 30 because apparently they come with serious ISSUES and are very difficult to deal with. Moreover why not just go for someone younger and greener, someone less 'jaded'.
Some weeks back on Aunt Landa's show on Inspiration fm some male callers actually expressed their reservation when the topic of dating a lady over 30 was raised. General consensus is that they come with a whole lot of baggage, would be difficult to get along with, would be a lot of 'work' and basically just have too many ISSUES.
There's also the issue of her being very desperate, so therefore she'll be full of pretenses to ensure that she snags the ring. But the minute she does she begins to show her true colours after the wedding and turns the man's life into a living hell. Gone is the gentle, polite, sweet and soft-spoken domesticated girlfriend of yesterday..., say Hello to Mrs-you-can-go-F-yourself-now-that-we're-married!
I'm curious to know what you guys think about this... Probably because I'm likely to still be single at 30 and I would want to know what I'm up against or how I'll be perceived, probably because I think it's unfair to write someone off because things haven't happened for them at the time society presupposes or dictates that it should, probably because I'm wondering if those things said about single women over 30 are actually true..... and if that's the case will I also be just another bitter, cranky, bitchy statistic, probably because I've met some over-30 terribly unpleasant single women and I would like to know if they're just naturally that way or being single has turned them into sour lemons, or probably because I am just curious and I think this topic would be enlightening!
Is there a stigma attached to being a single woman over the age of 30?
Like the commenter above, does a red flag go up in your head when you meet an unmarried lady in her 30s?
Sorry for my long silence today, it's been a weird day...unfortunately I can't promise that tomorrow would be any better. I hope your day was better than mine...
