I have friends who have talked a lot about this and it seems to me that it isn't the quality of men that are lacking as much as it is meeting them. When we were younger there were no end to avenues of socializing. Now that we are older-and wiser-there are definite places we have cut out of meeting appropriate people. Why--the quality of people we would meet in certain places are not what we are looking for anymore. No more barflies, lounge lizards, etc.
