The twentieth century ushered in the era of packaged foods and preserved foods in order to lengthen the shelf-life. And with this came the sell-by or use-by date. This tells the retailer how long to display the product for sale. And as they all say, whenever you go shopping, you should check out these dates before buying them.
Where is this Ria woman going with this?
Do you sometimes feel like people have introduced a virtual sell-by date on the dating shelves? Funny as this may look, I kind of amuse myself by metaphorically seeing the dating field as ebay. I am on ebay too.
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
The other day while at a funeral, my mum’s pal asked me if I finally got married. Well, being a 33 year-old woman in this age and era, it came to her as a shock that there is no steady man in my life and “NO BABY!᾿, she screamt. Then she pulled a joke on me… “Well don’t let those eggs of yours get to the sell-by date.᾿ I must admit guys, I was a bit bothered by her statement. And as they say, when the joke is on you, it aint that funny.
Going back to ebay, sometimes I feel like I have been there too long. I like to think of myself as some hot cutie, with all those curves and all. So I wonder, why aren’t guys bidding? And if they are, then why isn’t there a sold sign on me? YET? I know its ridiculous and I am happy with being single. But sometimes it gets me thinking… “Am I past the sell-by date?᾿
Looking at the Hollywood scene, most grandpas are scoring with the youngest and hottest stars. Take Donald Trump for example. And what worries me is some whacko research I read showing that a “woman over 40 is more likely to be killed by terrorists than to marry for the first time.᾿ :roll: Well the rate of marriages for women over fifty is way lower than that of men.
The thing is, even with all these statistics, I still don’t believe this sell-by crap (or so I console myself) coz my aunt got married for the first time at 48.
Funny enough, much as older men love the young women, the grandmas are no better. One woman who is 71 was being hooked up to 3 men who were between the ages of 55 and 60 but turned them all down. What did she really want? A 45 year old toy boy? So it got me reviewing my thinking… maybe this sell-by date saga aint just a woman thing.
So why am I still on ebay? Well maybe am like grandma above … looking for some fresh blood on ebay too. :lol:
