Your title is "Why there are no good men left." Is this true?
No. The title refers to a widely held perception among women today. In fact, the book shows that the perception is wrong. At the same time, the women who hold that perception arenít crazy or neurotic. They are reacting to the fact that the search for the right man at the right time can take so much longer and can be more difficult than they imagined.
You say there is a"new single woman." Who is she?
She is young, well-educated, independent, accomplished, and sexually liberated.
What is the"romantic plight" of the new single woman?
The plight is the struggle to find the right man at the right time in her life in a mating system that does not support women like her.
Why does the search for a good man take so long?
Todayís young women begin to search for a life mate at older ages, they conduct their search in an entirely new kind of dating world, and they are looking for a soulmate rather than a breadwinner. For all these reasons, it takes time.
Are women today too picky?
It depends on what women are picky about. If itís abs and hair, then maybe they are too picky. But if itís character, fidelity, integrity and emotional compatibility, they canít be picky enough.
What about cohabitation?
The term "cohabitation" is misleading because it is singular. There isnít just one kind of cohabitation. There are several different kinds. The book helps you understand which kind is likely to lead to marriage and which kind is not.
Whatís wrong with being single?
Nothing. In fact, thereís probably never been a better time to be a single woman. The book explains why. Still, according to a recent Gallup survey, the overwhelming majority of young women say that they want to be married some day. This book explains why marriage minded single women can be hopeful about realizing their ambition.
