Not the kind of woman men marry...

Posted by   + Show Post
WTF.

My neighbor actually told me I was not the kind of woman men actually marry. Just have sex with til they are ready to settle down. What a bitch!

She asked me if my current SO and I had set a date yet. When I told her we have called off the engagement for now, thy was her answer. Wow. And she did t even realize what a bitch she was being and was shocked when I was offended. She tried to say she meant I wasn't the kind to settle down myself but that's not what she said.

Why not? Most people do not wait for marriage to have sex these days.

Then you probably aren't going to find a very nice guy.

Quoting Joie35: Meh. I refuse to go without sex just because I'm not married.



Quoting thejodigirl:

She probably just thinks of the old adage about why buy the cow since you're giving it up for free. It does have some merit but they way she said that was rude.

And that's totally fine. It's your life. If she had said "Ya know hon, your low expectations of how this relationship of yours is might lead to him having less respect for you." Would you have still been offended?

Just since October. I would be shocked if many in this neighborhood saw me that way. She's kind of the odd one out. Most of the neighborhood is unmarried couples and single.moms.

Quoting Elle.tea.22: Well even if it is true, still rude to say. How long y'all been neighbors? Maybe she's giving you a little insight as to how people see you

Probably. I might not necessarily agree with her but that's certainly a less offensive way to put it.

A nice guy isn't going to want someone who is slept with a bunch of guys to marry and have kids with.   A nice guy isn't going to sleep around with a bunch of girls,either.
