We had this discussion yesterday because a close friend of ours is frustrated with finding a new relationship at age 55.So here we are, a couple in our mid-50s discussing this point.
My husband’s perspective is that women reject men far more often than men reject women, so men are always more vulnerable. Men aren’t as picky as women and traditionally, men were pretty much required to make the first move.
I was surprised to hear this, because in my past, I was usually the one who spoke to men first when I decided I wanted to get to know them. Being an Aries, I was not the shrinking violet type, and I don’t recall many rejections. Little did I know I held the advantage in these situations, according to my husband.
What do you think? Do men have it harder? Do they have to make themselves more vulnerable by taking more chances, thus potentially facing more rejection?
