Your choice of a spouse as a lady
As a result of the romantic nature of most women coupled with their inability to distinguish real life from fiction they see in movies, romantic novels and reality shows, they develop very high criteria in selecting whom they would walk down the aisle with.
A father once told his then selective daughter that she so much desired in a man can only be found among angels in heaven and not on earth. The average woman may want a tall man with all the biceps even though she is short. She may want the most handsome in the world even though she is not the most beautiful. Many ladies have a long list of things they require in their life partners and almost everything on their list boils down to the fact that they want a perfect man and sometimes driven by materialism and the need to compete with their friends. They forget that they are not perfect themselves. At the end of the day, these ladies are frustrated when they do not see the perfect men of their dreams.
Ladies are like flowers, beautiful as they bloom but wilt as they become old. As these flowers wilt, less people become attracted to them. I know of a woman who is in her sixties and still unwedded because she spent her youth waiting for her right man while she sent the right men away.
Ladies beware, youthfulness does not last forever. Look at your requirement and carefully erase those that are unrealistic. Have conditions that are realistic and before long, you will meet the right man.
Older ladies should completely eliminate all conditions except for totally irreconcilable religious incompatibility, wickedness and probably a few other rare reasons, which can make sense to everyone. They should not fret. Once they really desire and believe a man of their age will surely come their way. Love you!
