My friend told me that she read an article about what it takes to make a self proclaimed life-long bachelor marry you. I haven't read it - don't care too. But she said that the article said that it takes a very confident woman to land the long term bachelor, but the strange quirk is that while the woman he chooses is a confident woman - marrying him makes her less confident. Supposedly because she realizes that he could have married anyone else at any time, but he waited and meticulously chose her - and that makes her struggle to identify and maintain 'that special quality' that attracted him. (So I guess the premise is that it causes the woman to second guess and constantly reexamine herself to see if she's still worthy of his choice).
I don't think I agree at all - I married a long term bachelor (38, never married, no children) - I find that it's made me more confident both in who I am and his love for me.
The article did say that confirmed bachelors that *do marry - will *usually* marry a woman they've known less than a year. Now that fits us - he proposed within 2 months, we were married within 8 months of meeting.
What do you think? - I think some articles are just written to fill up space and this one seems full of crap.
