It's not just the women getting pressured, the guys are getting pressured, too.

I thank my sister for popping out the grandkids so my parents don't get all up in my biz all the time over it.

I'm an only child. Not only that, but the oldest grandchild from the two first child from both families to boot. A lot of expectations on my head.

Seems cynical to say it but, sure, find someone who isn't insane and marry them already.
You're better off moderately miserable together than absolutely miserable alone.

/Humans suck at the dating game.
/It also costs billions of dollars a year.
/I suggest picking mates by lottery of all available mates.
/and maybe you're a guy and get stuck with a guy, but you might be gay and dont know it.
/Can't say unless you've tried, really...

Given the male/female disparity in China I seriously doubt that women will have much of an issue long term.  It's not like there won't be multiple guys competing for every available female after about age 30.

This might be shocking, but some of us are ok being alone.

I'm not going to say it's my ideal, who doesn't want someone who loves them and is loved in return? Someone to have fun with and bang the shiat out of, who makes you a better person and inspires you to the occasional homicidal rage?

But honestly, I'm happy alone. Certainly not miserable. And I'd rather be 'less than perfect' alone than utterly miserable because I 'have to be with someone' or something.

That is what i was thinking. It's a friggin sausage fest over there. I assume their society will have to start paying out huge payments from the man to his wife's family in order to increase the "value" of having a daughter. Other than that they will need a convenient war to bleed off all that extra testosterone.

LOL THIS.  Asian women age extremely well.  They stay hot far longer than other races.

And this from a country where she's still often expected to quit work and stay home with the kids while her husband stays out drinking, finger-banging bar girls, and missing the last train home, until he dies of overwork or retires as a lazy dullard. Boy, sign me up for that shiat.

That's not necessarily true. Yes, there is a higher number of males than females, but the males and females are not evenly distributed within the countries. Single males (typically uneducated rural males) tend to live in rural areas away from cities. In the cities themselves, the ratio is much more evenly matched and the situation favors men more (especially if they are educated and have a good job), as I recall.
 
2014-02-11 10:09:32 AM
That's actually not such bad advice over here. It's kind of sad watching my co-worker exit her hot years while remaining crazy. In another couple years, potential dates won't have any reason at all to put up with her shiat.

So basically the sheep need to be wary.

I would add that aging women tend to overestimate their chances of turning into a cougar. Face it, ladies: You're not going to look like Christie Brinkley, you're going to look like your mother.

Guys harbor similar delusions about somehow turning into George Clooney at 40 when they looked like Chris Farley at 25.

If you want a chance at staying in the same league as you age, you're gonna have to learn how to bring new things to the table. Looks won't do it. For guys, the obvious way is to earn more money. For girls, unless you have some trick to learning a better personality (Protip: You don't have that trick), you're going to have to learn how to suck a golf ball through a garden hose.

screw you. If I get real drunk and squint in the mirror with one eye and the lights off I can totally convince myself I look like George Clooney.

lol.  truth is (without being sexist), women just age harder than men, at least appearance-wise.

take, oh courtney cox for example.  a hot woman, no doubt, even now  - but she just can't compete (looks-wise) with 25 year old courtney cox.

said it before, I say it again - you can not beat youth.  there is a reason the rich powerful men of the world go after the younger women - they have the ability to attract the most attractive.

and all that nonsense about women hitting their sexual peak in their 30's and 40's is bullshiat.

/they say men hit their sexual peak in their 20's.  So how does George Clooney keep getting top shelf tail in THEIR 20's?

Statistically speaking tho, you aren't better off. Couples tend to live longer and better on average, especially in nations where social security means having a family.

Were I the benevolent government making decisions as to what's best for the long term health of society, pairing people off with any available suitor would work better than hoping the kids figure it out on their own.
Its not like the situation will improve as they age.

/Meh, marry em off at fifteen and be done with it.
/Old enough to drive a tractor, old enough to get busy.
/What do you mean you want to find true love?

Fark you dissapoint. Where's the pics of what a hot 20 something Chinese girl may look like? While you're at it not a bad idea showing what one that is past her expiration date but still hot may look like...

Generally speaking, I think this is great advice for all women.  It might be a sexist, but we live in a society that *is* sexist.  If I were selling cookies and we lived in a society that only liked fresh cookies (or were willing to pay more for fresh cookies), I'd sell them when they were fresh.

Most societies (all that I'm aware of), put a huge value on how attractive people are - but ESPECIALLY women.  And nearly all of those societies agree that the peak level of physical attractiveness is around 20-something for most women.

So there you have it.  Your physical beauty is an asset that peaks around your 20s and declines.  If you want to get the most value from it (IE - you want a husband with traits society deems valuable), you can get a husband with more of those traits when you are younger than when you are older.

I hate to say it, but I've seen it with a few close friends and even a family member or two.  Cute girls without a lot of career ambition.  Very popular in college with the boys.  By 30 they are sick of the dating scene and complain that all the 'good men' are taken.  They tend to still look 'okay' but again, if I were single, I'd be interested in the 24 year-old versions of themselves, not the 30+.  All those other good traits - kind, caring, funny, loving, smart, creative, whatever - they had those at 24 too.

Granted, I wouldn't say it to them in person, because well...it's pretty mean/harsh/honest.  But some of them even joke about it, and even if they don't - I can see the guys they do go out with and there tends to be a steady decline in quality there.

Maybe the dynamics will change for girls who are 20 now, as I know marriage is on the decline too, (IE maybe I'm just old) but that was my experience.

Because they're trying to outlive their wives so they can be bachelors again.
