Are married men more attractive than bachelors?

A survey in the UK says that women prefer to have a relationship with married men because they are harder to get! But that doesn't answer my question. Are married men better off than bachelors, and if so, why do you think so?

I don't think married men are more attractive than bachelors I was always attracted to older men or at least working but not because they are married maybe if they are good looking, but there are good looking singles too and some of them are older than I at least 3 years older I never really care about age, as long as he is not 30 years older lol but other than that, I don't care what other people say it's my love life, so they should mind their own business I married a man 13 yrs older than I and I enjoy every moment I would be stupid to give up this bliss just because someone criticizes age difference about girls who think married men are better off than bachelors I think it's because they are taken and it's like a forbidden adventure like if you told a child, don't do it - the child will do it not all married men are mature or comfortable in their skin they just look that way if it's a happy marriage otherwise they look just as miserable as broke unemployed young graduates

It does seem perfectly ok for an older man to have a serious relationship or marriage with a slightly younger woman. So, its not surprising that you married a man who you feel is Mr.Right. There is no doubt there are many young people who are mature and great looking, but somehow I get the feeling that younger women prefer the company of older men. Its also true that men who are successful can be more supportive than those who try to make their ends meet. I'm ruly happy for you because you chose the right man, irrespective of his age and profession(?), maybe?

In a way, I can understand this because I've known quite a few bachelors in my days (single men) - and they can be pigs & jerks when they want to be. For some reason, married men .. usually seem much more at ease with themselves (they're not always bending-over-backwards trying to impress the cute girl in the office; they've already got one!) and I find that married men are also usually a lot more mature, family-oriented, and less obnoxious than guys who aren't. ANd of course I'm stereotyping here (I'm not trying to, I swear! lol) but those are some things I've noticed. So I can understand how UK girls might be more attracted to them.

maezee, you're spot on with your observation. For a girl your age, you seem to know a lot!

there is a certain attractiveness in married men. i remember a friend who is single and yet has an eye on married men. according to her, she likes the confidence and passion of married men. they are consistent and opinionated. besides, she likes the idea of defying the current norms and odds. i think more women believe that relationship with married men provides them the excitement and anchor in life. i think this is not found in bachelors by women.

A valid point indeed, mensab. I guess married (older) men have the confidence and respect which they carry with them to attract the younger women.
