guys in regards to marriage

recently an acquaintance of mine got engaged. i am not close to him so i would not be surprised if i'm not invited to the wedding but i am close enough to congratulate him personally in regards to it.

a mutual friend of ours posted a video of the guys get together... i guess for him to announce his engagement. in the video, camera man asks engaged guy, "are you excited?!" and the engaged guy goes, "uh... sure..." LOL he does not look excited at all!!

then the camera man proceeds to ask the other guys around the table what they think about marriage. all the single guys said, "dont get married!!!" the only guy who gave it a thumbs up is engaged also haha! but he doesnt seem too excited either!

then it got me thinking, "do guys act like they dont wanna get married bc they truly dont wanna get married?? or do they act like they dont wanna get married bc all the other guys act like it's a bad thing and they dont wanna be the outcast that's happy to find someone that they wanna spend the rest of their lives with?"

and if they truly dont wanna get married, i ask why? what's the big deal if you do get married as opposed to not? bc honestly, i dont think there's too much of a difference btwn being married and being in a serious relationship. really. and if it really is about being tied down and playing the field and such, why do ppl wanna play the field so much??

I think that is partially true. Most guys especially when they are young are extremely superficial and want to date a GORGEOUS girl. Only about 10% of guys actually date a girl they truly from the bottom of their heart consider GORGEOUS. A young guy often wonders even when they are dating a cute or otherwise great girl, if they could possibly do any better. Over time, age and peer pressure will force them to make decisions on the girl they are currently dating. Especially if that girl is on the higher end of the desirability scale, and is personality very compatible or better, the guy will often weigh the odds of finding something better in his head and decide this must be the best he can do in his life and to secure it.

I think this type of thought process is not necessarily true, but possible.
