If I am not Worth Fireworks in July, You are not Worth My Time in September

It’s July 4th week here in the United States and fun festivities abound. But yet, somewhere out there, there are millions of singles sitting at home alone.  Why?

Let’s face it, dating these days is complicated, but it doesn;t need to be. Activities such as festivals and fireworks are the perfect romantic outing.

So, let’s examine why so many singles are sitting at home alone and not enjoying these events with potential suitors (yes, I used that word). Why don’t more men ask women out to these events or even date over the summer? Why do summers find men missing in action only to arrive back on the grid in September or October? While I don’t have all the answers, I would like to explore a few reasons you may find men MIA over the summer months.

Freedom

One reason you may not be chatting with too many men over the summer is that men just don’t want to be bothered or “tied down” over the summer (whatever that means). Many men just want to do what they want to do and they don’t want to have to answer to anyone.  They know full well if they are dating you that you will question them, and they just don’t want to deal with that. They want to hang out with their friends or head for a weekend at the beach and they don’t want to feel obligated to ask you to go or hear you when you don’t invite them.

Money

Some men just don’t want to have to spend money on you. Really. They know in the warmer months you will want to do more things and that means it will cost them money. If they can hold out until summer is over, they know you will not expect them to go as many places as you would in the summer.

Time

As I mentioned earlier, they want their freedom.  Mainly they don;t want to feel obligated to spend time with you.  The more time you require, the less time they can do what they want in the summer.

They want to Spend Summer with Someone Else

Yes, ladies, this happens. Sometimes men want to have “fun” at your expense. Sometimes you are the recipient of a guy just wanting some summer “fun” with you only to be forgotten once reality sets back in when Summer is over. And sometimes, you are the forgotten one.  The one he sees as too serious for his summer fling.

These factors alone can make dating in the summer challenging.  So what is a woman to do?

My suggestion is that if you are talking to someone in the late Spring or Summer and they put off meeting you, forget them – even if you think they are perfect for you. Why? You may ask. Because if you are not worth the Fireworks of the Summer, he is NOT worth your time in the Fall. You are better than that.  You deserve more than he is giving you and accepting this from him will set a precedent for your relationship.

Of course, this is only my opinion, but really, ladies, you are worth Fireworks! If he is husband material, he will know that and will treat you like you are.

  1. I’m a single 72 year old male. A surviving widower from a 13year marriage. I’m also a 17 year cancer survivor.
    None of the descriptions about”men”
    and dating comes even close to my particular circumstance.
    First of all;although at 72 having survived the big “C”,I’m highly active physically & mentally astute. I am highly sexually active, so that places me in the dating arena automatically.
    I make a deliberate attempt to go places that would make myself available to women(age ranging 50-70)So far; despite my best efforts for some reason I remain “invisible”. I’m not sure if many single women of my age group are looking for younger men…or what? Nonetheless; I am one single guy that would like nothing more than to be available for that certain “lady” yearound; especially in the summer.

    1. Of course, this does not apply tp ALL men. Nothing ever does. It does, however, apply to many men. All one can do is put themselves out there, which would be my recommendation to anyone who is looking. Keep doing what you are doing, It seems like the right one shows up when we least expect it!
