  1. I agree, but I would add that there are age parameters for who women say that they are not looking for anything serious. Very young women, ages 18-23, think it’s cool to put off the “headache” of dating until they get older. They want to focus on their schooling or careers until they “get settled” or “feel ready.” So they are simply misguided women who aren’t taking advantage of the romantic prospects available to them. I know this because I was one of those young women who said that years ago, and it was mainly because none of my elders or parents gave me guidance on the importance of forming relationships in my younger years. On the other hand, if a woman is over 29 years old and she’s saying that she is not looking for a relationship, then she is out of her mind. Or gay. Or emotionally damaged.
