My longest relationship lasted two years. There was the super-successful corporate honcho with a cardboard box for a nightstand. The best friend with whom I had zero sexual attraction. We continued to date for at least a month after that. Their ages have ranged from nearly 15 years younger than me to going on 15 years older. There were Peter Pan Syndrome—afflicted man-children, full-fledged adult males with zero desire to grow up, maybe ever. There were drunks and drug addicts and maybe once a teetotaler.
There were Christians and atheists and Jews. There was a clammer from Cape Cod—a real, live clammer, with his very own waders. There was a man who shaved everything. There was the dashing Argentinean only in town for a week; the Ronkonkoma deli worker barely old enough to drink; the beleaguered i-banker who 10001 over regularly just to pass out on my couch. There were men who have dropped me on my head, literally and figuratively. I could show you bruises.
Also, he cheats on her. Only in New York! Those who do it are the exception, not the rule. Ask anyone. Maybe saying and hearing this makes single women feel better. New York City, to be fair, suffers its share of problems for the female dater. According to statistics collected by Richard Florida, author of The Great Reset and director of the Martin Prosperity Institute at the University of Toronto, single women currently out single men in New York byThis is based on data from the U. Census, which, it bears mentioning, does not ask to identify sexual orientation. Of course, love is inherently not a level playing field—its terrain is rocky, uncharted, completely unfair.
Hence the workaholics, status-aholics, power-aholics, and whatever else ambition breeds. Meanwhile, the streets are plentiful with ever more attractive women. We then realize our years sort of went by. This is true of all of us, men and women. Yet somehow, helped along by rom-coms and self-help books and chick lit, at some point we learn to ignore the simple fact that there are two people in every relationship, and that they both have a hand in whether it succeeds or fails. And something else: that the success or failure of most relationships can, if we look at them with open eyes, probably be predicted from the very beginning based on some simple indicators.
How freeing: He is just not that into you!
Some years agohaving lived in New York City since graduating from college, I was visiting my parents for Thanksgiving. But, Married women seeking affair in New York, the question hit home because there was truth to it. There was and still is something wrong with me. And so we want a little bit of everything, over and over again.
I think if girls were more withholding, boys would be more likely to commit, but because boys can get most of what they want without having to commit, they do. The scariest of scary words. Options: Those are exciting. So we want all the options, bigger and better and faster and shinier, or taller or sexier or stronger or smarter, and yet somehow also different and completely our own.
And we want to push those boundaries. That, to a large extent, is why we live here. He told me he loved me. But at the end of high school, when I knew I was going away to bigger, brighter things while he stayed in town and continued at the local community college, I tried to dump him over and over again, eventually making out with a random guy in a band on high school graduation night and telling the would-be ex about it the next day. But I have options! I wanted them then; I still want them now. Yet these never-ending options wreak havoc with us, as does the idea that we can dally with each of them without ever deciding on any and just hope it will all fall where it may—that someday our prince will come, and he better be fucking good.
Good Enoughwhich suggests that women Married women seeking affair in New York are still single after 35 are just too damn picky. Everyone has to make choices. Why should you settle? But the magic pales in comparison to the simplest, and yet most difficult, of things.
Knowing what you want. You hold the cards.
If Carrie had wanted marriage and kids back in Season 4, she would have stuck with Aidan. Instead, she got panicked and 10001 and self-destructive and Carrie Brhaw—esque, and started to have an affair with Big, who was clearly until the unbelievable ending of the series never going to marry her. Why do that to yourself? Because the grass is ever so mysteriously greener in the yard does he even have a yard? And because it makes for good drama, or, at the very least, tragicomedy.
Still, at the end of the movie, or the TV series, everything 10001 wrapped up neatly and tied with a Tiffany-box bow. In Working Girlthe girl gets her career-with-corner-office and Harrison Ford to pack her lunchbox. Wrong, but in surviving finds her Mr. Harry and Sally run through the relationship ropes course as enemies, friends, lovers, and enemies again, only to end up an old married couple.
As do, of course, Carrie and Big. It all just seems to unfold, without anybody doing too much soul-searching or goal-plotting, much like a movie. A movie set in New York! Which means the dream we expect for ourselves drastically needs to be tempered with a dash of reality, a dose of self-reflection. There are all of these successful, smart, workaholic women who have their shit together and strong views and senses of who they are. Their expectations are a bit higher. Fewer people are getting married than ever.
According to a Pew Research poll published at the end of last year, about half of all adults in the U. Four in 10 people consider marriage obsolete. At the same time that fewer of us are getting married, more people are doing it for love—93 percent said it was the most important reason to tie the knot. Because at some point, it will simply be too late to have.
No urgency. The same holds true now that I am dating someone. Unless, of course, one of us gets hooked up with really good health insurance. I would. This is just a biological fact. Perhaps this is changing. But ladies, we are so much smarter than that! There is nothing wrong with taking your time and sampling liberally from the buffet. Every guy has his purpose. Once you know what you want, narrow the options, make your choices, and go for it.
But until you do, embrace not knowing. Make New York your playground and stop complaining about how single ladies have it so hard in this city. Along the way, remember that men are not the enemy.
