Eh, I'm just not into these kind of generalities. People are so complex that I don't think you can lump them into categories so easily. I just don't think you can assume things will end up the way this article predicts. People can change.

I like the point that you can enjoy your time with a variety of men, but if you are seeking to settle down those men would be less than ideal.

I think #1 applied to an old boyfriend. I was madly in love with this guy in my twenties and he professed his love no end but he never committed to anything and I stayed way way way too long. 5 years is a colossal waste of time.

I don't know that 'every woman needs' to date these guys. One is probably enough. 5? Oi Vey.

BS, age 53, d-day 6-2-08, divorced after 17 years and 20 together. Now I am living alone in the beautiful rural property that was once the dream retreat with X. It's taking a long time to create new dreams but despite some struggles I am mostly happy.
