I have recently come into contact with several over 40 divorced women. Their physical appearances are still effective enough to attract male attention. They have that going for them. Unfortunately, they don’t have much else.
It really is a sad sight to see. They are all semi-desperate to desperate to gain a commitment from a man (and most importantly his resources). I am projecting that marriage is not in the cards for any of them; the best they will do is live-in.
They find themselves in this situation; how did they get there?
From what I can piece together, it mostly happens like this: lots of sex when young, marriage to a narcissist bad boy type, kid(s), divorce for obvious reasons, more sex, maybe more kids, government aid, working their one asset, then what?
They are like the underpants gnomes.
Phase I: Use your sexuality to attract narcissitic men that make you tingle, have kids, then divorce
Phase III: Live happily ever after off of a man’s resources.
I am sure that this was not their plan from the get-go. Probably they had no plan from the get-go. Even when the need for a plan became obvious, they went back to the old tried and true. Perhaps they might have tried to develop job skills or such, women are free to make money just like men after all.
What will become of them, who knows?
