    Girl was intelligent, decent job, messed up family life, good sense of humor, crushed beers with me. Wasn't my type and I don't believe in marriage really, but at what point do you guys think you should settle? Guys at work tell me that as long as their wives "dont give them shit" then it is good lol

    You will know when it's time to settle, no one can tell you that, it's different for everyone. Call me a romantic, but when you meet that girl you fall in love with and only want to spend every minute with her you will have your answer.

    But can you tell that right away? Or does it take time?

    Put me in the "know right away" column. And it does seem totally illogical but that's the way it worked in my life.

    like the other guys said, sometimes you know right away, other times it takes time. You just never know when you are going to be shot by cupid :c

    If you don't feel the spark from the outset, you're not going to feel it later. You're not refurbing the bathroom. This is more serious.

    You might not know right away that you love her. But you'll know you want to see her again, without a doubt.

    Are we talking settling for someome, or settling down. Sounds like you're getting advice for both situations here. Vastly different.

    I think men and women are different on this one (and many other ones). Women can probably vibe a guy at first sight. Guys need to think and think and think about shit. So much so we drive the women crazy, but that's how we're wired.

    I met my best friend in 1977, married her in 1986 and we're still best friends, and married. My advice is to work on the friendship first - do you laugh at the same things? Do you want to spend time with her, rather than your friends? (and not just for sex)? That kind of stuff. If yes, then you're on the right track. If no, keep crushing beers with her until you get bored and then move on.

    Never settle. I have a large group of friends who did not marry until they were in their 40s, and they all have either a:) super amazing hot wives in the 30s range b:) super hot amazing girlfriends in the 40s range who just didn't want to get married. This is the great advantage for me, we continue to be viable late in life. We can either slide down the age bracket or wait for the really great women in our age groups who escaped the net. This group of my friends is much happier than the group of my friends who married at 25-27.

    If you want to be happy for the rest of your life never make a pretty woman your wife.
    So from my personal point of view get an ugly girl to marry you.

    Am I the only asshole that it takes 4 or 5 years to figure out they're not the right one?


    Also what does settle really mean? If your hopes are so high above reality are you really settling with something less?

    Smoking hot girls are fun to fuck but 9 times out of 10 are a major pain in the ass. If you have found a halfway cute one with a decent job and she wants to drink beer with you, Id say youve struck gold.
