I have decided if my bf and I break up (God PROHIBIT as I'm really in love with him) I won't return to online dating but will give celibacy a shot. Dating after, say, 58 or 59 is NOT worth the effort imo. Maybe 'cause finally you're stuck with all these bitter, old, paranoid,hypocritical boomer men. I really don't know....Am fine with my solitude now. Crave it really (bf and I have a long distance relationship but just 72 miles). We are just apart about 4 nights before reunited though.

He said it was vanity on his part and I told him I did it'cause I could (get away with it).

Men have ever been attracted to me in person. Big time. Sometimes it was flattering and occasionally a difficulty honestly.
I 've exactly the same observation. Andrew. For awhile I was amazed at women's profiles with their shopping list of demands (do not contact me if...you must be blah blah blah....""with no statement of what they have to offer. Surely a man can collect much about a female from reading her profile, and women are often so inundated with answers from poor matches they become exasperated and start to establish bounds; yet for me this language implies an attitude of entitlement and self-absorption, and suggests perhaps an assumption that she's the more desirable one in the deal. Perhaps women are used to being pursued. A more thoughtful mature girl will understand that relationships aren't just about her and her needs. Certainly men can frequently behave the same manner, only wanting sex. I consider the deeper truth is the fact that many people simply blunder unconsciously into relationships, compelled by their poorly understood desires, knowing neither themselves or what they need from a relationship.
Debby, you are talking rot as far as I am concerned. I am 62 and let me tell you, I've had nights" with women 20-30 years younger and they do not even ask what I do for a job. Sure the long term prospects aren't great with a considerably younger woman. But in my experience a lot of much younger women go for me. They say I'm a silver fox and attractive lol - Sorry, but as much as youwant to consider it is about a cynical money grab, I need to tell you we mature guys, like some elderly women attract the opposite sex. Regrettably, many do not entice the opposite sex. nature is cruel.
Men over 45 do have more options regarding dating. But there are certain ways around this. First, a woman has to specifically say what she offers a man (that he desires) in the context of dating and relationships. I have read tens of thousands of female profiles (35-55 years old) and almost not one of them really say what they offer a man. Normally, it is a listing of demands and choices. This isn't great advertising. A female must have the ability to answer the question What do I provide a man he wants?" If she doesn't understand, (or is offended by the question) she's not prepared for dating.
Kathleen, I'm an older guy and most women on line in my age group make out they are not interested in the younger men. But of course they are. It's just that all the younger guys approaching mature women are mainly, looking for what they consider to be the quickest method to get easy sex. They simply reveal interest in men their very own age when the supply of younger guys dries up, or the guys begin to lose interest in them. it is insulting to me. And that is the reason why I am not interested in the women, my age who approach me.
I get what you are saying. When my marriage fell apart a year ago people attempted to assure me that I was a catch. And I still thing I should be - am tall, trim, seem young for 48, run my own successful company, understand how to dance, am a community leader with environmental education and in my profession, lecture at university, write, from an exotic place (Alaska). As a result I am quite active so online dating looked like the answer. But in fact in six I can count on one hand the number of women that have written back and no actual dates. I decided women in my date range and attractiveness range. Merely to check I wrote to fairly older women and less attractive than myself. Nothing. Got on Tinder and swiped almost every woman. Tried all types of pictures. Nothing. while I speak to my female friends they say they're inundated. The only dates I have had, 2, were from old buddies who both told me they had been fantasising about me for years but then they left it at that and scarcely return my calls. At Meetups women seem interested but they don't respond. Just do not realize this, it's as if they expect me to pursue them and I 'm loath to do that because the two times I did that when my union was souring forever alienated good pals. Really out to sea on all this - so much has changed since I was last dating 26 years past.
I feel like I am aging out" of internet dating. I've seen after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the answer I get on has dropped to virtually nothing. It is as though proceeding from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some sort of death-knell for a dating life. I begin contact with guys in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself. The possible matches the website sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look at the age-range that those guys desire, (normally 35-50) I frequently move past them, knowing I can not compete with women in their desirable range, even though many of those guys are as much as 5-8 years old than me! In other words, knowingly sends me matches which are probably not realistic for me to pursue. When I've e-mailed a number of those men, I don't hear back. I'm guessing they check out my profile, see my age, and probably read no further. Even if I'm within their desirable range, I still don't get much of a reply. I presume the reason for this is they can get younger women to respond to them, so why would they go for me when they've a chance with the 45 year old version of me? If their first wife was their age, such as, for instance, a school sweetheart or whatever, they probably feel entitled to a newer version, so to speak. Our culture supports this. Rydalmere NSW Adult Hookups. It's frustrating, not to mention depressing and more than a little humiliating. It is the builtin folly of online websites: you're only defined by your actual age, in bold type right next to your user name.
One more thing. I would like to ask all of my middleaged online dating male and female compatriots a favor. Please, let's rid our profiles of these overused phrases once and for all: glass-half-full, sensuous, play-free, and easygoing. And these, let's omit these also: "I look 10 years younger than I am," "I hate talking about myself, but..." and all derivatives of "my buddies/mother/ex-husband/kids tell me that..I am a glass-half-total optimist, who is easy going and looks 10 years younger than I am." I believe that if we can all agree to clean up our profiles then perhaps, just perhaps, we can find some common ground and get back to the company of falling in love (or at least having fun trying).
Quit Using Your Profile to Complain about Men. Several guys noticed how many women's online dating profiles are comprised mostly of criticisms about men - either their profiles, or their behaviour in general. I agree with the guys on this one. There's absolutely no point in using your profile narrative as a soapbox for your negative understanding of all single, middle-aged men (for heaven's sakes utilize a site for that). So while I'm certain there are men (and women) out there who are logged on and behaving badly, I really believe that women must take responsibility for their own picks. We can maintain our positive expectations while at exactly the same time heeding our inner voice that warns us when something is not quite right. Much too frequently some women are guided not by common sense, but by wishful thinking and a want to be fine and not seem ill-mannered, so we ignore the big, red flashing warning lights raging in our heads and proceed without caution. I once met a girl who expressed great depression that she just couldn't trust the men she met online. She then continued to tell me a story about any of these men who spent days (yes, days) wooing her via email. He told her stories of his limitless prosperity and his connections to powerful individuals all around the world. She slept with him on the second date (after he assured to whisk her off to a private island that next weekend). But that is not all. She also gave him all of her identifying information when he told her that she needed to be checked by "his folks." And guess what? Yep! Her identity was stolen. Whining about how she could only no longer trust guys she met online was a bit like complaining about how she could simply no longer trust Nigerian princes. Adult hookups in Rydalmere New South Wales.
Tone Down the Boudoir Shots. You say you want a quality man who honors you as a human being and is interested in having a serious relationship with you, and then you post photos of yourself next to your bed (or on your bed, or in your bed, or in someone else's bed). And if you aren't posting photographs of yourself next to your bed, (or on your bed, or in your bed), you're posting photos with way too much cleavage. Now, that's totally wonderful - I don't have any problem at all with this, and I'm certain many men don't have a problem either - but what some men do have a problem with is when women place said super-sexy glamor pictures and then whine to their buddies, or make statements on their profiles about how all guys are dogs and only want them for sex. And while we are on the topic of criticism-filled profiles...
Athletic and Toned Means, well, Athletic and Toned. I hate the body descriptors as much as you do (well, except for you size 0 women out there, you almost certainly adore them), but I do believe it's significant that we at least strive for honesty. The word on the street is that far too many women out there in the internet dating world are using the "fit and toned" descriptor in reference to their "about average" bodies (this criticism applies to men also, of course). The thing is, there actually isn't anything wrong with having an around typical (or curvy) body so let us take the pressure off ourselves and heed the advice of Amy Schuler, and comprehend once and for all that a little meat on our bones isn't going to kill us, and it isn't going to drive away the good guys either (right, good guys?).
No. More. Instagram. Photographs. I really like Instagram pictures because many of the filters make my eyes look strikingly blue (or green, or lavender), and some even shave about 10 years off my face. But do I post these photos on my internet dating profile? No I do not. Why? Because my eyes are not really that blue (or green or lavender), and I am about 10 years older than my Instagram pictures would have you believe. This was the number one complaint among the men I interviewed - artistically filtered (i.e., delusory) pictures. Truth in advertising women, truth in advertising. Adult hookups nearby Rydalmere NSW.
