Megan is upset because she is apparently older than 26, and among people who marry, Dating in gta san andreas ps2 do so below 26. The intuitive conclusion is that the number of potential partners is decreasing as time goes on.

The Dating in the dark tv show schedule is an unwritten rule which asserts that it is creepy to date anyone who is younger than half your age plus 7 years.
