I concur with all of the above sentiments with one exception. I don't think I would consider men or women as predatory because they're looking for love or companionship from others regardless of whether they've always been alone or are coming off a disastrous relationship. We're all looking for that feeling of belonging or being a part of something bigger than ourselves. That's the human condition and that's what keeps us going on single's cruises and other single's events. The desire to find a soul mate and not be alone isn't predatory. That desire makes the world go around.
