学业时间的延长、工作的压力、生活方式的改变,使得越来越多的年轻人延后了谈婚论嫁的年龄。但姑娘们在找男友的时候也要擦亮眼睛,谨防“有毒单身汉”。

身边的“有毒单身汉”

Toxic bachelor is an unmarried man who is selfish, insensitive, and afraid of commitment.
“有毒单身汉”指的是自私、感觉迟钝、惧怕承诺的未婚男性。

They also refer to men who remain single past 40. 40 is a race-dependent number. Asians can be considered toxic bachelors if they remain single past 31.
超过40岁的单身男士也被称为有毒单身汉。40岁是一个与种族相关的年龄界限。亚洲人超过31岁还没结婚就会被认为是有毒单身汉。

They can be grouped in following two broad categories:
“有毒单身汉”常可分为以下两大类。

1) Those who are always looking for the next best thing, due to some underlying issue that prevents them from forming a long term relationship.
1) 由于一些潜在的问题使他们总不能形成长期的恋爱关系,他们总在寻找下一位交往对象。

2) The ones who have a Peter Pan complex and just never want to grow up.
2 有彼得潘情结,永远不想长大。

Most of these toxic bachelors seriously consider settling down once they have a mid-life crisis and see the writing on the wall. Then they try to get married in a hurry to have kids, and to ensure their own immortality through their offspring.
大多数有毒单身汉在遇到中年危机或者迫在眉睫的麻烦之后会认真考虑安定下来。之后他们急于结婚生子,以确保有后代来延续。
