All of the married guys say don't do it and the single guys say when are you going to?
I will take the advice of the experienced.
After 13 years with the same honey what's the advantage to marriage?
Amen, Catmando!

No , wait a minute....There is one. She gets free health care through my employer and if we weren't married she wouldn't.
I'd have to pay for it like everything else

Well it went like this. I was engaged for about 5months to this girl I've been seeing of and on for about 9yrs, so she knew about my passion for speed on and off the water. I had finally finish school and decided to get into racing, so I told her I was selling my Scarab and buying a race boat. She said it was her or the raceboat. I didn't even respond. After a min she came up with the ideal that she wanted to control my checkbook and finances. We wern't even married yet! We'll I got up and walked out, and am now the proud owner of a race boat.

PS: She is out of the picture!

at 44 I'm having too much fun to have a manager in my life. Plus there are just way too many young Fl. hoes that are everywhere. Maybe when I'm old as hell and need some chick to hang around for 5 or 6 years and take all my money. And it is so true in Fl.

This is a no brainer guys.

Married with children?


Single with toys?

There are exceptions, and a lot of married people on OSO who've found a good match. The problem is those women are very few and a diminishing breed in numbers.

Barry, good story.

Tracy, you forgot the most common perfect answer possible

"The good ones are already taken!"

Sometimes I have friends why I am not.
I too have had one perfect, so I thought at the time, girlfriend.
I spent over 5 years researching and saving for my boat. Wanted this, no wanted that. Went t oover a doxen manufacturers over the years for inspection and learning. We were together for the last 14 months of this endeavor of mine. She knew what I was looking for. It was not even when I ordered the boat, but 2 months before taking delivery when we discussed our vacation time to Havasu to pick it up. She did not want to take her vacation in Sep but to wait until Dec for a cruise. I told here my vacation needed to be used to pick up the boat. She then realized that the boat purchase was real. She was absurded that I was looking at buying a 100 grand boat. Lets say things ended after that
So to this day I have not found the one that understands why we are the way we are. People have hobbies, people have lives, people are different, it is what makes this world so great.
Problem is trying to match everyone up.
But I can honestly speak for myself, I have not honest looked for the perfect one as much as some have.
Like many have said here, sometimes its cheaper, easier, or safer to be single.
People can come up with so many different reasons or thought answers as to why, but I truly beleive most of the people that give reasons other then personal the yare making it up and are afraid!

This Cat is trying to keep up with the Big Dogs
