This is a subject that I have wanted to write about for a very long time. Because I once dated a guy who was everything I had ever wanted, until… I found something that forever changed the foundation that our relationship was built on. Is my boyfriend gay? I had never had a connection with anyone like this before. But then again, why did I find what I found on his phone? Since when did caring too much about your hygiene become a bad thing, let alone a gay thing?

I’m never having kids! That was my dating mantra. I always knew I was destined to be the perpetual, quintessential bachelor, and I made no.
You often find when you’re dating in your forties that men are one of the above. When you meet the divorcee, more often than not, he’s come out of a long marriage and has children who are almost ready to fly the nest. The divorcee is the one who likes lots and lots of sex – you’re almost guaranteed he’s not been having much in that department as he and his wife had pretty much gone off each other before the inevitable break up. Only embark on this relationship if your libido is still going strong.
His ego will need a big fat boost. The divorcee by default morphs into Kevin the Teenager. After many, many, long years of being nagged to pick up his undies from the bedroom floor he will now be rebelling like a petulant child. My advice is not to visit the divorcee in his man cave until you have fallen in love with him.

Many people lead rich and fulfilling lives having never married. Staying single is a viable choice for people who feel this way, and absolutely the right choice for those that feel marriage would cause them unhappiness.

He hears the whispers from the amateur psychologists who say, “Never married? There must be something wrong with him. The more appropriate term is somebody you feel comfortable with. The idea of the Old Bachelor as a part of an oppressed group may seem ludicrous to some, particularly to single women of a certain age, but many older-than, never-married men do seem misunderstood.

Dating a Long-Term Bachelor. This is a man who can never find anything right in the world. When you date him, you will find out that nothing is ever right.
Charles A. Waehler, a psychologist at the University of Akron in Ohio who studied a group of white, heterosexual bachelors 40 to 50 years old. Waehler, who presented his findings at a recent meeting of the American Psychological Association in San Francisco, found that these men are not woman-haters, they are not fixated on a parent, and they are not workaholics or wild playboys. But as a group, Dr. Waehler said, they relate to people in ways that end up isolating them.
Waehler said everyone has styles of behavior to help them cope with the anxieties that relationships can produce.

By staying single, the bachelors prevent these defense mechanisms from being challenged, he said.
