"It makes the person you "settle down" with look like a consolation prize, a means to an end (giving you kids for example), or a punishment or vice holding you down. You're not excited to be with them, you're with them because they are safe." This right here!!! Thank you sir! That is another reason I do not care for people who said that. When I was younger, I had a guy tell me I was the "type of woman someone settles down with after they've had their fun." Yes, really. A guy told me that.And I was disgusted by that because it basically means they [men] see me as a safe, boring, not exciting person. I'm good enough to marry or be in a long term relationship with, which yes, is good. But only AFTER they've had their fun. No one wants to hear that, true or not! So like yourself, I have NO respect for people such as that. They had their fun, slept around, were stupid and not ready to settle.
I can't disagree!
I think you read into it too much. It just simply means they've grew tired with the same old things and are ready to start the new chapter in their life.
@Creepazoid It appears people are seeing it in many different ways. I see this statement on dating apps all the time and it pisses me off. Women are basically saying.. you buy me dinner, you take me out... we aren't sleeping together for at least 4 months so sorry but "i had my fun" so now any guy moving forward has now been put in a box with a different set of rules.
I think their definition of fun is really “fuck a lot of people.” So fun and settle down are separate categories.
