When it comes to relationships there are some red flags that should not be ignored. There are a number of them, but this particular one?...
"Oh, he's really nice o! We have a good time together. He's really tall, fine guy, nice job, nice ride, comfortable lifestyle, nice crib, good christian, really interesting, fun to be with... He's from a good home too, Sagittarius, 42..."
"FORTY TWO???" My friend blurts, cutting in.
"Are you sure he's not married?" She asked.
"He's never been married?" She asked
"No children?" She asked
"Not married, never been married, no children, and 42? That's not normal".
This is what you get at any mention of a love interest in his forties.
But here's the thing, a lot of women in my age bracket are meeting men in their 40s who claim to be single, and we have no reason not to believe them. But for the rest of the world they seem to think this raises a huge red flag.
So what do you think, is there anything strange about a guy in his forties who's not and has never been married? Does this signify that there's something wrong with the guy; some ugly character flaw or a deep dark secret? Does he represent a burning red flag we should steer clear of?
Or could it be that he's just not been ready? Too busy with career? Hasn't found the right person yet? Just hasn't been lucky in love?
What do you think, is the single 40-something year old guy a red flag?
