Said to me by my mother when I explained that I don't want a particular female in my life because I don't agree with her taste in men. I don't want that woman bringing tweaker criminals around my kids, so why should I have any sort of friendship with her? I don't want grown-ups in my life who I don't trust my kids around. Anyway, this comment didn't sit well with my mother- she had something to say!
"You're one to talk...."
I HAVE BEEN SINGLE FOR FOUR YEARS!!!
During this time, I've had multiple opportunities to date. And I could have had more, if I went the OLD route (which I refuse to do). I have turned all offers down, because I am so determined to choose my next partner carefully.
But I have bad taste in men.
When will I be considered to have good taste in men? 50 years from now, if I remain single because of my high standards? Or maybe 1 year from now, if I settle for one who doesn't meet my standards, but meets those of society? We know what the answer is. My sins of poor choosing will be held against me my entire life, unless I either find a HVM or settle for one that meets the bare minimum requirements of being a decent human being. Eff that.
