In my opinion, online dating, the social media curse, plays a big role in women staying single trying to "catch" the right man out of thousands based on handsome profiles versus real time activities when a coffee chat is boring. Perhaps the fastidious bachelorette with a stable of eager prancing partners has set a new norm to play the field sensing flattery versus commodity. Recently my friend married her best friend, a plumber, after a two year relationship and a love of baseball. Doesn't seem to happen much anymore .
