Dating a confirmed bachelor

The people that truly want to remain single their whole lives don't seem to date much in my experience. By the time lawyers were paid, the house was sold, etc... And my Ex and I mediated everything (no long, drawn out court battle! But I have to confess, it drives me bonkers where there are people who have never been though one (or ever married) who think somehow one part ends up with all the money and the other ends up with none--or there is a winner and loser.Both sides lose and the only winners are lawyers as far as i can tell.

Most of the guys I know that wanted to stay single at 25 in order to date a lot of women ended up married by 40 or so.

The people that truly want to remain single their whole lives don't seem to date much in my experience.

someone who's single simply because they haven't found the right person to partner with, yet, and is still looking.

A wise man once said: There are only two groups of women, those who plan on getting married and those that have no intention not to.

Most end up taking care of their parents too--and that gives them a sense of family and caring for someone. I assure you sincerely that it is not my intention at all. By the time lawyers were paid, the house was sold, etc... And my Ex and I mediated everything (no long, drawn out court battle! But I have to confess, it drives me bonkers where there are people who have never been though one (or ever married) who think somehow one part ends up with all the money and the other ends up with none--or there is a winner and loser.

I really appreciate everybodys comments here even though some of them deviate a bit from my original query. True - but I can be a big softy - and when I see someone say they have an illness that is going to prevent them from being capable of having a relationship - it makes me want to help. Both sides lose and the only winners are lawyers as far as i can tell.

And before you mention insurance, there is "insurance" for divorce too (everything from pre- and post-marital counseling to a pre-nup). Of all the men I've known in my life, almost all marry--very few don't.

But the ones that didn't and stayed bachelors well into their senior years seem happy.

Women want to GET married, but very few actualy want to BE married.

With current judicial climate that heavily favors women during the divorce process via wealth redistribution, I consider a bachelor by choice a smart guy.

From a financial standpoint, yeah, it is a bit of a punch to the gut, but after a lean year I recovered for the most part.
