22 Is Too Old

Recently, some TradGirls on Twitter were complaining about Manospherians who were saying that: these days, if you are looking for a wife, 22 is too old!

These women were confused. So, since this blog is (hypothetically) for girls and young women, let me explain it to you.

Let’s say that you had four preferences for a wife.

Debt-Free
Virgin
No Tattoos
Not Overweight or Obese

This is not that difficult a list. Every woman is capable of this. It is not something that naturally excludes most of the population, like a requirement that men be 6′ or taller, or in the top 20% of income. It does not require any special skill or achievement, like playing the piano or dancing ballet.

In the old days, there were a lot of 25yo single women who fit this description. Probably 80% of 18yos did.

Today, among 18-year-olds, about 20% fit this description. Among the better sort of girls, that might be headed for a four-year university, it is more like 40%. That is not too bad.

But, among single women Age 22, even among the graduates of four-year colleges, only about 10% fit this description. Maybe less than that.

Something happened between Age 18 and 22 that reduced the number of single women fitting this rather modest list of requirements by 75% or more. Basically, what happened is: These women were living on their own, outside of their Father’s house.

Add to that the fact that, among those women that have a natural tendency to form long-lasting, stable, mutually-beneficial, monogamous relationships, most of them have already done so by Age 22. Although they might not get married until Age 26 or Age 28, most of them are off the market. They are no longer single. Sometimes, women get into an extended relationship around Age 19 or 22, which goes on about five or six years, and ends without resulting in marriage. These women are back on the market, maybe around Age 26 or 28. But, since their tendencies are to create lasting, long-term relationships, and now they are more focused on marriage, they are usually available for only a short time, and are soon married.

That’s why, if you’re looking for Slim Debt-Free Virgins Without Tattoos that make Good Wives, most of them are gone by Age 22. If you want to catch them, you have to go younger. It’s not the way it should be. It’s just the way it is.

But, in the old days, the best girls were all gone by Age 22 then too. They got married Age 18-20. Do you think they wanted to stay virgins until Age 25? In those days, women wanted to make babies, just like they do today.
