Q & A

I’m at a loss for words these days when it comes to our younger generation and dating. What is it with these young men these days, where they have the opportunity to date wholesome young women who have it somewhat together and are independant, and still remain single. I just don’t get it, can anyone else expound on this?

    • Just my observations——-  most young men today haven’t been taught  to be a MAN.  They know nothing about responsibility and commitment or any of those sort of things.

    • Hello Tulip , good hearing from ya! I guess you're right and I do agree with you on that! A lot of parents especially some of these moms out here still baby their sons and do nothing to help them become strong responsible men who could be marriage material. Its bad enough that most homes today are fatherless and the mothers donot help the situation any better by babying their sons. It is such a shame that there are so many beautiful well rounded and educated young women out here who are marriage material and still have no dates because the men are sorry and just plan ole lazy and just want to lay up!

    • Well and there are so many guys who only want to go out with a girl who “puts out” rather than spending the time and effort to get to know a nice girl.  My daughter is 23 and dateless too.

    • That is so true but sad all at the same time. My daughter’s are soon to be 27 & 30 this year and both are single and not dating because of that fact. My oldest has no children and wants to be married but the harvest is very skim.

    • Our son is 23 and is a responsible, young man who is looking for a nice girl, but to be honest, he tells us the pickins are slim as too many young women today are completely full of themselves and want EVERYTHING, so it makes it hard for a young guy who is just starting out to give her the world, so I guess it goes both ways.happy

    • Marya, sounds like we need to do some matchmaking.  LOL!  And you are right, so many of these girls are looking for way too much.

      I sort of pity the guy my daughter does find.  He’s going to have to put up with massive amounts of extended family.  He’s going to have to be willing to relocate to a small town, and put up with a very independent girl.

    • I agree that it does go both way’s.  My son is 21.  He works full time (and a lot of hours too).  He doesn’t date much.  I’ve asked him why and he say’s he “doesn’t need to the expense“.  Hmmmmm......honestly, I don’t think he should be in a serious relationship until he’s more “mature“.

      Now my step daughter is 21 too.  She is “going to marry rich“......LOL....yeah, better get busy.  They are both living with us at the time so I see it from both sides how the young adults are.  Boy times have really changed from when I dated is all I can say.

    • My son Mark will be 25 and he is picky... (good for him lol) he is a really good young man. But he wants someone that cares about the state of our world and can hold thier own if challenged about it. He wants them to be independent but also giving to the relationship. He has been really hurt by his first true love and wants a women that isn’t expecting him to pay for everything she wants.
      So, for now he dates alittle but has alot of girls that want to go out with him and he wants his career in law enforcement set before.

    • My daughter is 19 and the few guys she’s dated have all been disappointments to her.  She tells me so many are irresponsible, not focused in their college education or don’t have a goal in life.

    • I don’t know, Neicy. It seems like the really young girls these days are willing to “give it up” for boys long before either gender is ready for the responsibility of sex. And then there is so much media influence to be a princess. Everybody wants to be a diva or multimillionaire
      these days like it’s their God given right. If they earn it, cool! If not well, it’s dreaming on. I
      have noticed parents not making their children be responsible, maybe too much wanting a child to have more than the parent did without realizing they (parents) earned their status on their own but weren’t allowing their children to?
