At the same time, I'm also deeply fascinated by breakups, divorces, and the theory that not all love is meant to last.
I also find that those who have loved and lost often times gain very valuable emotional insight, something I discovered while dating in Manhattan—not to sound all Carrie Bradshaw, but it's true.
The ideal woman for this guy is the girl who has been hurt many times by single men and is in the stage where she just wants someone to love her.
As a wise quote I once found on Pinterest said, "Better to have loved and lost, than to live with that crazy person for the rest of your life." Ah, marriage. S., your chances of getting divorced are still 50/50, according to University of Maryland Sociology Professor Philip Cohen (52.7% to be exact).
The age-old tale of two soulmates falling for one another, growing a family, and living happily ever after... That being said, I am 31, single, and have never been married, so why am I writing about post-divorce relationship advice?
And then I turn to new words that refer to the changing relationship between men and women at this time.
As discussed in the book Dewdroppers, Waldos, and Slackers: A decade-by-decade guide to the vanishing vocabulary of the twentieth century (Ostler) there were a number of new terms for women in the 1920s, which reflected the news ways in which they were being viewed by others in society.
And it always starts with the same feelings of confusion, hesitation and attraction.
