    for me dapat yung standard that was set nung twenties pa lang ang isang tao should be adjusted and not be one and same high standards after 20 years (just saying if the subject high standards was not realized).
    kumbaga parang proportional ang adjustment pag tumanda na ang isang tao
    In the end, they probably settle or make compromises.

    yes habang tumatanda bumababa ang market value so kailangan mag adjust ng standard para may makuhang mate

    like babaeng 40s mahihirapan makahanap ng lalakeng single na good looking, good job, never married, no kids

    ibaba niya standard niya tumanggap siya ng lalakeng separated or divorced

    My personal theory... After the age of 35, may reason kung bakit single ka pa din...

    Focus sa career? Family (parents, siblings etc)? ugali? Etc...

    After the age of 35, lahat ng better/best - taken na.

    yes older women can and do date younger men pero most of the time it's the women who spend on the men

    usually hindi sineseryoso ng younger men ang older women

    for free *** lang and other benefits

    but that's the only way older women can get younger men to stick around

    That's a major factor for me (good breeding) But it seems like for men it's not much of a factor, well I guess you're one of the few exceptions

    I would be appalled if I were the queen. I believe that when you marry a person, you marry into the whole family. And Megan's family is a trainwreck. She has family with criminal background. I may sound bigoted but I don't want criminal genes in my bloodline. (I believe in the the school of thought that there is a criminal and homo***ual gene)

    These accomplished women who are able to get BFs or spouses later on parang late na rin nakakapag-asawa and when they do, they're not from the same class (or the spouse or BF is not as accomplished).
    I can name at least 5 off the top of my head that are like that. My unicorn friend's fiancé has a lot of qualities that used to NON NEGOTIABLE for her such as short and lawyer. Physically he is opposite of her dream guy. She likes tall, dark and handsome. Fiance is short, maputi and cute. But she learned to love him na rin. She told me she really does not want to be alone e. Also, financially the guy is just a bit below them I guess. She used to want to marry at par or a little above her in social class. Although, this may be hard for her as she comes from old money and her competition with women in that category is not easy (maraming mas maganda at ma appeal)

    He told me, height first then you start checking the stuff in your list.

    If you find a short partner and your kids like to play basketball or join a beauty pageant someday, the first requirement will always be height. No one is too tall (not unless your kid wants to be a jockey or a F1 driver, although M. Webber is 6 foot tall, but there will always be people who are too short.

    You wouldn't want your child to say "maliit kasi mom ko" someday.
    But most women do not want men shorter than they are. I thought it's common knowledge that in the dating world, short men and fat women are bottom tier. I'm 5'5" (and I usually wear 4 in heels). The rest of my HS barkada are taller than I am and we complain that petite women have it better because they have a wider range of height to date. Eg a 5' girl can date a guy 5'4" and up

    look for someone who used to have issues na na resolve na like my unicorn friend. Her fiancé hit the jackpot with her.

    there's always the one-in-a-million find, versus the everyday variety.

    "someone got lucky" versus daily ho-hum humdrum.

    everybody wishes he/she were that lucky one, but, as highlander says, "there can be only one".

    heh heh.
