On topics far from my horizon
Both of these links crossed my desk today, from two different sources:
- Atlantic Monthly: Marry Him! A self-made single mother asks women to re-consider their romantic ideals of marriage and to settle for Mr. Good Enough.
- Slate: The Eligible-Bachelor Paradox. Using econ and game theory to explain the shortage of available, appealing men. (It’s true; there are so few of us)
These articles, in conjunction with the onslaught of wedding invites, betrothal toasts, and childbirths, have put a stutter in my step. Readers, I need little reminder of my social and emotional retardation. Nonetheless, I shall plod forth, steadfast in my most sincere belief and complete conviction that I shall blossom into New York City’s most eligible bachelor.
