Do you know "residual girl"? It is new noun. Recently, this noun appears on many TV and Radio Program. It means the girl who is not married yet though she is over 30 years old. One interseting investigation shows that female is over 50% of unmarried persons over 30 years old. Why? Most of girls have many dreams. Several girls always have high standard for their boyfriends. They hope their boyfriends had handsome outside, a lot of money, were tender and considerate, and so on. Then these girls will choose their boyfriends according to these standard. But at last most of these girls will not find their princes. And the time is passed. They become "residual girl", even they are still virgin. Is there any "residual girl" around you?

I wouldn't say there's anything unusual in being unmarried at 30 or over. it certainly DOESN'T mean that they have unrealistic standards, and it DEFINITELY DOESN'T mean that they have missed their chance. a lot of people marry older these days. nothing wrong with that at all.

i have never heard of that term.. i know some guys like that that have their standards so high they refuse to try out normal girls.. they have this image in their heads and if the girl doesnt fit every single thing they wont even look twice.. and yet they whine about being alone lol

There are a lot of "residual girls" in the school where i first taught... it seems like most teachers a bound to be such because they are too preoccupied with they profession... and they forget their own personal lives... or that they need to have a family of their own... Well, that is their choice... and they should be happy... because there are a lot of advantages in being single...
