It is written by Shame Watson so it is bound be a crap article.

40 is hardly over the hill these days (or so I am told) and the way to meet potential partners is simply to get off your arse and go to places where there are people to meet.

in my experience, most people I know that have been single for a long period of time between the ages of 35-45 are a bit strange, or have ideals well above their station.

UAE can be a bit of an exception - for men, but for women, no excuse really.

Fuse.. check

matches.... check
ok here we go..

Admon I am going to agree with you (even if this is becoming a disturbing habit).

I have met too many single people who want a perfect partner but have forgotten to a) consider what they have to offer and b) look in the mirror. It is all very well wanting a handsome, charming and wealthy man, but what are you offering in return? This may sound like I am letting some some supposed sisterhood, but IMO too many women expect to be supported financially when they are perfectly capable to earning themselves. Likewise too many men think they are god's gift and act like arrogant neanderthals.

Frankly some people deserve to be single.

Deserve to be single ?

Maybe they choose to be single....its preferable I guess, but certainly not obligatory to have to have a partner !

Your reference "they deserve to be single" implies to me that it is something taboo or is a unhappy state to be in does it not ?

I dont agree

I know several men & women who are only too pleased to be away from their former partners and are enjoying being on their own, and several people who wish daily they could be away from their partners and on their own
