Today’s saying 37: A good man is hard to find
Possible interpretation: This saying talks about the difficulties for women in finding a suitable male partner.
Note: hard (adj.): difficult | American actress and sex symbol Mae West (1892-1980) famously misquoted this saying as: “A hard man is good to find.”
Origin: This phrase was the title of the song A Good Man Is Hard To Find first sung in the USA in 1918:
A good man is hard to find
You always get another kind
Just when you think that he is your pal
You look an’ find him fooling ’round some old gal…
