I'm Shocked at the Attitudes Some Men Have About Women Over 40

I've reached the age where it is socially unacceptable to be single. It's quite embarrassing to say the least. Even some of the nerdiest men and women in my class are engaged or married now. 

Now that I'm 39 and a half years old, I wonder what people men think of women over 40, and I did a quick Google search to find out. I'm shocked at what I found. 

For instance, one man went on about how women over 40 who never had kids are "selfish." I've seen other comments about how supposedly wanting to get married or have kids is supposed to be about "when she wants it." 

All of this is quite hurtful, and I can't believe how cruel some men can be. I even saw comments about how women over 40 have "expired" in their attractive level. "No thank you," to women over 40, one said. 

I want to remind men who think this way about women over 40 about a few things:

Remember how you always wanted to play the field when you were younger? That's fine. You're entitled. But then now you're in your 30s and 40s and expecting a woman to want to settle down?

Fine time to start thinking about that! The way some men treated women when they were teenagers or in their 20s is the reason why some of them are almost 40 and even already 40 and over and never been married or had children.

Many of these women have been damaged by men like you who decided playing the field when you were younger was more important than being with someone you love. Therefore, what do you expect when you find out women in their late 30s or early 40s have given up on love?

Seriously, you men have no right to judge. 

Oh, and don't even get me started about the men who always want to date women half their age. Seriously grow up is all I have to say! If you expect a woman to accept you for who you are, then you gotta accept her for who she is!
