Christmas Tree


 Wishing you Love and Laughter In the New Year! 


I wish you all the best of the holiday season. 

I’ll be taking Christmas week off to spend with family, and will return with a post after the New Year. 

Until then, please stay safe both physically and emotionally as you revel in the celebrations!

    Feliz Navidad and Happy Hanukah! It has been quite an eventful year for me. Today, I say thank you Susan because I honestly feel I can say you’ve helped me understand and navigate the College Dating market and to realize that there is always somebody with a similar outlook about dating than you do. Thanks to all the commenters, although I might disagree with many of them, the perspectives they bring are unvaluable. Merry Christmas to all 🙂

    @ Susan

    The case against older fathers

    So I was goggling Mark Zukerberg and read several comments about his wife’s appearances. Some commenter
    feels that his wealth should afford a more attractive woman and that he should used it to bed hot girls every

    On the other hand, Huge Hefner had done exactly that by bedding young women well into his old age.

    In fact, he is getting marry again to a twenty-something woman even though he is in his 80s. This makes me think
    of the Times article about older parents, who will have a lesser chance of living long enough to meet their grandchildren
    because they were having children after they are accomplished (30+) instead of their prime years (20s).

    Susan, I enjoyed reading your blog and became more interested when you suggest that a younger woman should
    seeking an older man if she wishes to get marry soon. I would like to argue that there should be a limit and that
    men too have deadlines.

    As a man grows older, his sperms becomes more risky because of the mutation that occurs. Many older fathers have a higher chance of children with mental disability.

    Therefore, I would like to suggest that a man should get marry between 30 to 40 years of age. As a man age,
    so will his body and health even if his mentality is that of a young man. A man will have less health, youth, and
    vitality to assist his wife in his children upbringing.

    In the old days, men and women rarely live past their 60s and
    by that time menopause and erection dysfunction prevents them from producing more children.

    another thing, I was curious if you can write an article about the case against older fathers? You suggest that women dates older men if they want to get married and have children, but there are reasons against dating older men.
