The lonely legacy of my Sex
And The City lifestyle*

Daily Mail [UK], by Claudia Connell

Original Article

Posted By:supersid, 11/6/2012 1:23:28 PM

Like everyone, I think and worry about the future and wonder where I’ll be in the final decade or so of my life. With at least another 20 years of work ahead of me, I don’t know whether I’ll be comfortably off or stony broke, and I hope that the good health I’ve enjoyed so far won’t desert me later on. One thing I’m pretty sure of, though, is that I’ll be on my own, with no spouse to look out for me or children to visit.

* Full title: The lonely legacy of my Sex And The City lifestyle: Claudia Connell gives a painfully honest account of how she came to be living alone in middle-age

She notes that even Carrie and Bridget eventually settled down but in real life she likely does not have the chance.

A selfish, self-centered narcissist awakens to the fact that she is now old, alone, and undesirable.
No sympathy here.

i don't understand how anyone could not foresee the consequences of living a selfish life past the point where youthful attractiveness helps to entice a man to marry you. When aging Boomer men start dying off, there will be millions of older women, very few younger people per capita to support them, and these younger people will be buried under huge government debt. It's going to be a perfect storm of consequences.

This is what happened to my old girlfriend and ex-fiance from the '60's. She chose the free-love lifestyle over a stable relationship and now is bitter old single lady devoid of family and true friends. I feel sorry for her.

fta: When it came to men, our attitude to them was the same as it was towards the latest must-have handbag: only the best would do, no compromises should be made, and even then it would be quickly tired of and cast aside.
~~~

And now you are exactly where you designed your life to end up. Old, alone, and unwanted and that is how you will die unless you make some serious changes in your attitude. Is it any shock men don't want you now?

No pity from my corner. I am one of those women you pitied, insulted, and belittled. I am one of those women who married in her 20's and had a child and gave up a career for love, companionship, and stability. No regrets... you can not say the same.

FTA: "Being single still has some incredible upsides — the biggest being the disposable income and the freedom to self-indulge."

How sad that in this entire article there is nothing to indicate what she has done for others. Instead, she has lived her life for herself. She thinks it might be a good thing to have someone to cook for. Didn't she ever have a friend or neighbor who needed that?

FTA: "I’d urge them to continue having the time of their life … but also, perhaps, to keep one eye on the lonely middle-age that is waiting to knock on their door."

It doesn't have to be that way. Instead of waiting for someone to knock on her door, why doesn't she knock on someone's door instead? You don't have to go far to find someone who needs a friend. And that's a good remedy for loneliness. Her selfishness will never cure that.

It's a problem. But probably the woman's arrogance is the overarching problem. She won't settle for less than a perfect man: and how perfect is she and what efforts does she make to be more perfect?

These leftoids like hildebeast clitton want to throw out all the old wisdom but they really haven't solved the problems anew. It's a sort of vacuous monovision: I know what I don't like so I'll just improvise with what feels good.

We all make choices with our lives.

The more selfish the choices, the worst they tend to be in the long run.

She made a lot of selfish choices in her younger days. But, even at her age, there are a lot of eligible guys who would like to have a relationship with a woman like her. But old habits die hard, and she still wouldn't give those guys the time of day. Not handsome enough, don't make enough money, etc, etc, etc...

Claudia and her ilk sneered at us when we ''settled'' for imperfect mates, never realizing they themselves were imperfect as well. They cry into their child-free Louis Vuitton purse collection that the party is over, they are now past their sell-by date, and want their youth back so they can rectify their mistakes.

I know women like this too. Some are selfish and narcissistic, some aren't.

Part of the blame lies with our Leftist entertainment/media/advertiser complex that has pushed the "men (and fathers) are idiots -- who needs them?" meme for several decades now. "Murphy Brown" was just one of many manifestations in our pop culture media.

Even more to blame are the '60s feminists, especially Betty Friedan and her acolytes. Their motivation for destroying motherhood and the family came from their Marxist roots.

I'm sorry for the many women who were naive enough to got sucked in by these Leftists ... and then grew old and learned the truth too late.

The problem is, she wants to have it both ways. She wants to be in a relationship, but didn't pursue marriage. There is nothing wrong with being single if that is your choice or if it is your choice not to marry someone just for the sake of getting married. A bad marriage is worse than being single. But people have to acknowledge the choices they have made and live with them.

Too many women need to understand men aren't 'fixer-upers,' so stop with the bad boy nonsense. On the other hand selfish, ego centered people are always a pain. I'd say quit crying and get it in gear, but if she hasn't figured some of this out by now, probably not going to get a clue. First hint, spouses look out for each other, not just you.

As a journalist, she was mass produced in a cookie cutter factory and duly excreted with a fixed load of "values" which are actually corrosive, counter productive, destructive, even treasonous. Her "professional" efforts have furthered the degradation of western culture. No doubt she is now considering becoming a muzzie. The illogic continues...

I feel sorry for her as reality bites.

WASHINGTON — Senate Democratic and Republican leaders reached final agreement on a deal to reopen the government and extend its borrowing authority into February, with votes in the House and Senate possibly to begin this afternoon, according to aides familiar with the negotiations. Senate Republicans have gathered for a final review, but lawmakers have given no indication they will block it. A government shutdown into its third week yielded virtually no concessions to the Republicans other than some minor tightening of income verifications for people obtaining subsidized insurance premiums under the new health care law.

In 20 or so years of political speechwriting, the only condition I have ever set down in advance of being hired is that I would never, under any circumstances, assist any candidate or officeholder in promoting the cause of abortion. (Snip) Come to think of it, I first learned about the “abortion rights” cause and about the ruthlessness of industrialized farming around the same time, at the age of 13 or 14, and my reaction to both was similar: You just don’t treat life that way.

My various consultants, pollsters, PACs and exploratory committees haven’t fine-tuned every detail of my platform just yet, but I can say this without a doubt: I will not vote for any “comprehensive” bill, whether on immigration, health care or anything else. “Comprehensive” today is a euphemism for interminably long, poorly drafted, and entirely unread – not just by the peoples’ representatives but by our robed rulers, too (how many of those Supreme Court justices

Sanford, Fla. - George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager, igniting a national debate on racial profiling and civil rights, was found not guilty on Saturday of the second-degree murder of Trayvon Martin. He also was acquitted of manslaughter, a lesser charge. After three weeks of testimony, the six-woman jury rejected the prosecution’s contention that Mr. Zimmerman had deliberately pursued Mr. Martin because he viewed the hoodie-clad teenager as a criminal and instigated the fight that led to his death. Mr. Zimmerman said he shot

Just when I thought the George Zimmerman "trial" couldn´t sink any lower, the prosecutorial limbo dancers of the State of Florida magnificently lowered their own bar in the final moments of their cable-news celebrity. In real justice systems, the state decides what crime has been committed and charges somebody with it. In the Zimmerman trial, the state´s "theory of the case" is that it has no theory of the case: might be murder, might be manslaughter, might be aggravated assault, might be a zillion other things, but it´s something.

Who throws a shoe? Honestly! That would be 36-year-old Alison Ernst of Phoenix, Arizona, who was charged Thursday night with disorderly conduct by the Las Vegas Police Department after allegedly throwing a shoe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. According to NBC News, who spoke with a Secret Service official, the U.S. Attorney’s office has declined federal prosecution. Ernst was wearing shoes on Thursday night when she attended a speech Clinton was giving in Las Vegas, but apparently brought an extra one specifically to throw at the former secretary of state. The official said the incident appeared to be “premeditated.”

Many Americans have been watching with great consternation the ongoing struggle between the Federal Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Marshals against Cliven Bundy and his family. There are no signs of either side relinquishing their position. Many onlookers have been informed that this dispute is over protecting the desert tortoise. But it is nothing of the sort. In fact, the reality of the dispute goes far underneath what is being talked about. The more appropriate source of the dispute is ground water as well as surface water -- this is a war over water.

Following the massacre of grammar-school children in Newtown, Conn., in December 2012, high-powered weapons have been used to kill innocent victims in more senseless public incidents. Those killings, however, are only a fragment of the total harm caused by the misuse of firearms. Each year, more than 30,000 people die in the United States in firearm-related incidents. Many of those deaths involve handguns. The adoption of rules that will lessen the number of those incidents should be a matter of primary concern to both federal and state legislators. Legislatures are in a far better position than judges to assess the

A Nevada cattle rancher appears to have won his week-long battle with the federal government over a controversial cattle roundup that had led to the arrest of several protesters. Cliven Bundy went head to head with the Bureau of Land Management over the removal of hundreds of his cattle from federal land, where the government said they were grazing illegally. Bundy claims his herd of roughly 900 cattle have grazed on the land along the riverbed near Bunkerville, 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas, since 1870 and threatened a "range war" against the BLM on the Bundy Ranch website after one of

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A brazen flash mob has been caught on camera storming a California store and making off with $20,000 worth of sunglasses. Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911. The thieves then all bolt outside and escape in a waiting SUV. The incident occurred at the Valencia Town Center mall, in Santa Clarita, at 3 p.m. on

It’s hardly been a secret that in recent years the moderate center of the Democrat party has been driven away and what remains is a conglomeration of disparate blocs which, to date, the party has been able to treat as if there were no conflicting interests between them. As the midterm elections approach and the administration’s incompetence, along with the distaste for the president’s signature ObamaCare legislation, drive the party’s chances down further, the make-believe coalition of opposites may well crumble if the opposition doesn’t blow it. Democrats hope to retain control of the Senate and recapture the House by driving

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public
