DailyMailUK.com reported, "Simon Cowell, 55, has dubbed himself the 'world's most eligible bachelor' now that George Clooney has tied the knot. George had previously earned himself the prestigious moniker after years of dating but never marrying. Now, the X Factor boss reckons that title is all his thanks to the Hollywood star's recent wedding to Amal Alamuddin. He told Hello! magazine: 'I'm the only iconic bachelor left in the entire world - thanks for that George Clooney.'
Simon, like George, spent years being romantically linked to many women but never fully settling down. That's changed since becoming serious with girlfriend Lauren Silverman and welcoming their son Eric into the world in February this year. 'I think it's a title I'll keep for a while longer if I'm honest. I've never said no to marriage but then again I couldn't imagine having a kid at one point and now look at me.'
He added. 'I guess I was always nervous I may not end up getting on particularly well with the person I was going to have a kid with and I didn't want to make the wrong decision. Our baby wasn't planned was actually the best thing for us to have done and we're very happy now.' The TV and music mogul, who was previously engaged to Mezhgan Hussainy, also admitted there was a chance he could marry Lauren, but wants to wait a while longer."
I've said before on several occasions that it doesn't seem as if Simon is all too interested in Lauren. And every time an article surfaces about their relationship, I'm only proven right once again.
The reality is that no woman who is with a man in a long-term relationship wants to hear him describing himself as an eligible bachelor. Lauren's no exception, I'm sure. Combine this with the fact that Simons the father of her child and you have a situation that doesn't sound too good.
What I have to wonder is whether Lauren even cares about how Simon says these things? Does he tell her that he doesn't mean it and that it's just a show for the press?
Were I Lauren, I'd give him the marriage ultimatum. If Simon has no intention of seeing this one through, there's no need for her to sit around and be subjected to embarrassing comments like this.
Trust that when a man talks this way he's not into you. A man who loves you would never risk hurting your feelings.
Until next time...
