I wasn't sure where to put this discussion, so I am throwing it here. Sorry if it is in the wrong category. I am not trying to stereotype men here, although it may sound like it. I am just going to admit it's somewhat a generalization. But I have NOTICED, as I work in customer service and meet new people, both attached and unattached, all the time, there are a few things I have noticed. For one, I have noticed that MARRIED MEN seem a lot more friendly, a lot more comfortable with themselves, and a lot more easy going. I don't know why this is, but that is what I have noticed. Perhaps it's because they are no longer chasing tail and so that isn't something they have to worry about. I have noticed, on the other hand, that a lot of 'single' guys who either have girlfriends or don't, can be huge tools at times. Not all of you guys out there, but I have noticed that either these guys are more reserved, a little less friendly, and kind of competitive. I work in customer service, day in and day out, and so I have time to observe these kinds of things (obviously too much time - LOL). So, not to stereotype you guys... But guys, does this rule apply to you? What do you think? Do you know why it is? And gals, have you noticed this as well? Why do you think this is? HAPPY MYLOTTING ALL!

there is some truth in this discussion. the married men seem to be more confident than single guys. but i don't think it is because they are married or not pursuing any other women; probably it is due to the age and experiences of married men. most married men reach a certain age and have experienced responsibility in their lives. their composure has been strengthened because of these.

I'm a guy and i see the same thing with single women... When my aunt was a single woman, she was mean to everybody... she get married in her 50's and after that she was calm down and be nicer to everybody. I don't think this condition apply to everybody... sometimes i met a married man or a woman who were grumpy, i can even stop my vehicle in front of their house for just a minute, and sometimes old single poeple are nice. Maybe single people who are rude to everybody is because they want to be married but they don't seem to find the right person to get married, so unconsciously they're become less friendly... but for some people who don't want to get married, they still be friendly to everybody because they never really care about marriage.

I noticed this too, seems like there is something in it, maybe not everyone is like this, but still... Apparently they are not worried so much about drawing women's attention to themselves and can be more easy going. It can be challenging though, as this can be a reason why some women are attracted more to married guys.

your proberly right, i suppose the married men no longer have to impress other women there fore they dont have to try as hard so they dont care as much and are easy going. Not all guys are tools i am not married but ....... i am a tool. Yes your right i agree with every word in your statement LOL.

I don't think it applies to me. 0_o But it's hard to observe your own behaviour so who know... IDK it could be true. The only thing that kind of strikes me as odd is the distinction between married men and men with girlfriends. I find it weird that there would be such a big difference between them.

Yup, notice that too. Most single guys tend to be reserve and interact less while most married man seem pretty open on anything. I guess hen being married, they have interact and be with woman more which make them more understand on how to open up. But of course, that only apply to some. Some man are naturally born charmer that can open up to anyone, married or not.

Don't underestimate the married guy who seems friendly because he just may be after a little side tail.... Being comfortable with himself just means he's been around and knows the tricks of the trade. Just beware and don't be victim of guys like that...... As for the single guy, I'm surprise about the fact that they are reserved. If anything they are more agressive and prepare to come on to a pretty face. They tend to be out there hunting the prey So be careful out there

I think I agree with you that married guys are much more friendly and comfortable because they are not shame to rediscover while single guys are still having a little bit fear to ask women to be their friend

VERY interesting observation Maezee! You may have answer a question I've had for a long time. For years I have been trying to figure out why everyone ALWAYS assume that I'm married when I'm not! Perhaps I should make an effort to act like tool every now and then, huh? Cheers, Stan
