« Meow Mix (That’s What TNR Called It.) | Main | A Believable Theory About Conspiracy Theorists »

If you’re a single woman . . .

. . . see if you can read this without snorting.

You mean that upstanding single men who are interested in marriage are exceedingly hard to find in a big city nowadays?? Why, heavens to Betsy, who would ever have thought it?

Mr. Derbyshire, incidentally, once tried to convince me in an e-mail conversation that the sexual revolution had had its good points. I wonder if there's any hope of his seeing any connection between it and this anecdote that has him so stunned.

There are plenty of single, godly, upstanding evangelical men in this country. Perhaps most of them are in the red counties. I don't know.

I do know that most of them aren't in the top 2% in height, or the top 10% in wealth and looks, and so single women often don't 'see' them in the first place.


The point was not that "single, godly, upstanding evangelical men" don't exist; its that there are more single, godly upstanding evangelical women than men. Not good odds. I have yet to visit a church where the singles/college group has a remotely proportionate male/female ratio.


I would respectfully disagree with that "plenty" qualification and ask Puzzled how he "knows" they are there. Personal experience proves that to be incorrect. (Most of the "qualified" men I know are already married...which I guess disqualifies them automatically.)
