I guess they get anxious once they get over 30.  Maybe men sense this, and that's why they have a tough time finding a guy.

I don't think there was any real talk about "cougars" in that article.

I met her in Philosophy class. We had an in-class debate and I made her cry.

After that, she knew it was meant to be.

People are pathetic. 34 years old and she can't figure out how to get a dude? Come on! Men are easy! Although, I have to say I'm not very enamored of the bar-scene as far as dating goes...

I think it's best to meet people at bars who are friends of a friend, something like that.  Just meeting a random person?  There are some crazies out there...

And how/why did you make her cry??

How, with my superior wit and rhetorical skills, of course.

Why? Because she was wrong.

i met my last boyfriend at a bar. he was the first guy i saw when i walked into the room bc he is tall. i told my friend i was with that i thought he was cute. i kept brushing by him as i walked by until finally he started talking to me. he says his friends made fun of me for my trying to be subtle but actually really obvious approach. we hit it off and ended up together for two years.

usually i have horrible luck at bars but i have actually met one other nice guy at a bar before but that was at a college bar so it is different.

so i guess there is some hope for meeting people at bars...even though it is usually hard/sucky

I'm pretty sure that by entering relationships we are ignoring our animal instincts/human nature.  I think out purpose is to have as much sex with as many people as possible.  However, I am probably saying this since I've never been in a serious relationship.  I get bored very easily.   :-[

Ooohh, slightly above the mendoza-line on attractiveness, and sexually indescriminant... My kind of girl. My place or yours? Bring a paper bag. I must warn you that I am going to ask you to take the morning-after pill before you leave my sweet bachelor pad though... Don't want any little runts running around, headfirst into the walls.
