I have determined 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 ISN'T worth the effort imo. Maybe 'cause finally you are stuck with all these bitter, old, paranoid,hypocritical boomer guys. I do not know....Am okay with my solitude now. Crave it actually (bf and I 've a long distance relationship but only 72 miles). Cheap Hookers nearby Bay Tree. We are only apart about 4 nights before reunited though. And plan to dwell together at some point in the foreseeable future. So my dating experience can be best summed up by the old standard Just in Time". Listen to the Streisand variation circa 1965.
The funny thing is both me and my current bf ONLY dated younger for the most part when online dating. He said it was vanity on his part and I told him I did it'cause I could (get away with it). But asI've said numerous times on this particular site, I also was just able to date younger (my normal taste except for my present same-age bf) cause I lied about my age. Shaved off quite a couple of years too girls! lol I was born in 1953, but wouldput 1960 or1961 on my profile. What helped is I 've a killer figure (thin, but curves, 36D) and pretty face thanks to years of intermittant plastic surgery (but nothing below the waistline til lately (coolsculpting which I recommend). Myplastic surgeon's nurse says I endeavor youthfulness and look, on a good day, in my 40s still. So, I Have had a clear advantage. I figure I am one of the lucky ones, but I think it is a combo of my personality, a kind of God luminescence"/spiritualityand looks. Men have ever been brought to me in person. Big time. Sometimes it was flattering and occasionally a issue frankly.
I 've the same observation. Andrew. For awhile I was amazed at women's profiles with their shopping list of demands (don't contact me if...you must be blah blah blah....""with no statement of what they have to offer. Definitely a man can gather much about a female from reading her profile, and women are often so inundated with replies from poor matches that they become exasperated and begin to set borders; yet for me this language implies an attitude of entitlement and self absorption, and suggests perhaps an assumption that she is the more desired one in the deal. Maybe women are accustomed to being pursued. A more thoughtful mature woman will comprehend that relationships aren't just about her and her needs. Certainly men can frequently act exactly the same style, only wanting sex. I believe the more profound truth is the fact that most people just blunder unconsciously into relationships, compelled by their badly understood desires, knowing neither themselves or what they want from a connection.
Debby, you are talking rot as far as I am concerned. I'm 62 and let me tell you, I've had nights" with women 20-30 years younger and they don't even ask what I do for a job. Certainly the long term prospects aren't great with a considerably younger girl. But in my experience a great deal of much younger women go for me. They say I am a silver fox and fine lol - Sorry, but as much as you'd like to consider it's all about a cynical cash grab, I have to inform you we old men, like some elderly women entice the opposite sex. Sadly, many do not attract the opposite sex. nature is unkind.
Men over 45 do have more options regarding dating. But there are certain ways around this. First, a girl has to specifically say what she offers a guy (that he wants) in the context of dating and relationships. I've read tens of thousands of female profiles (35-55 years old) and practically not one of them actually say what they offer a guy. Generally, it's a record of demands and choices. This is not great marketing. A lady must have the ability to answer the question What do I provide a guy that he needs?" If she does not know, (or is offended by the question) she's not ready for dating.
Kathleen, I am an old guy and most women on line in my age group make out they are not interested in the younger guys. But of course they're. It's just that all the younger men approaching senior women are mainly, looking for what they consider to be the fastest method to get easy sex. They simply reveal interest in men their particular age when the supply of younger men dries up, or the men start to lose interest in them. It's insulting to me. And that's the reason why I am not interested in the women, my age who approach me.
I get what you are saying. Bay Tree, Alberta Cheap Hookers. When my marriage fell apart a year ago people tried to reassure me that I was a catch. And I still thing I should be - am tall, clean-cut, seem young for 48, run my own successful business, understand just 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'm quite busy so online dating looked like the solution. But in fact in six I can count on one hand the number of women who have written back and no real dates. I picked women in my date range and attractiveness range. Just to check I wrote to rather mature women and less attractive than myself. Nothing. Got on Tinder and swiped nearly every woman. Attempted all sorts of pictures. Nothing. while I speak to my female friends they say they are inundated. The only dates I've had, 2, were from old pals 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 however they don't respond. Just do not realize this, it is as if they expect me to pursue them and I am loath to do that because the two times I did that when my marriage was souring permanently alienated good friends. Really out to sea on all of this - so much has changed since I was last dating 26 years past.
I feel like I 'm aging out" of internet dating. I have seen after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to nearly nothing. It is as though going from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some form of death-knell for a dating life. I initiate contact with men 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 go past them, understanding I can not compete with women in their desirable range, even though many of those men are as much as 5-8 years older than me. Bay Tree Cheap Hookers! To put it differently, knowingly sends me matches which are likely not realistic for me to pursue. When I've e-mailed a number of these guys, I never hear back. I am guessing they check out my profile, see my age, and probably read no further. Even if I am within their desired range, I still don't get much of a response. I assume the reason for this is they can get younger women to respond to them, so why would they go for me when they have a chance with the 45 year old model of me? If their first wife was their age, like a college love or whatever, they likely feel entitled to a newer model, so to speak. Our culture encourages this. It is frustrating, as well as depressing and more than a little humiliating. It's the built-in folly of on-line websites: you are simply defined by your age, in bold type right next to your user name.
One more thing. I'd like to ask all my middle aged internet dating male and female compatriots a party favor. Please, let us rid our profiles of these overused phrases once and for all: glass-half-full, sensual, play-free, and easygoing. And these, let us omit these also: "I look 10 years younger than I am," "I hate talking about myself, but..." and any and all derivatives of "my buddies/mother/ex-husband/children tell me that..I'm a glass-half-complete optimist, who's easy going and looks 10 years younger than I am." I think that if we can all agree to clean up our profiles then perhaps, just maybe, we can find some common ground and get back to the business of falling in love (or at least having fun trying).
Discontinue Using Your Profile to Whine about Men. Several men noted how many women's online dating profiles are contained chiefly of grievances about men - either their profiles, or their behavior in general. I agree with the guys on this one. There is 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 use a site for that). Cheap Hookers in Bay Tree, Alberta. So while I am certain there are guys (and women) out there who are logged on and acting badly, I really believe that women must take responsibility for their own picks. We can maintain our favorable expectations while at the same time heeding our inner voice that warns us when something is not quite appropriate. Far too often some women are led not by common sense, but by wishful thinking as well as a desire to be fine and not appear ill-mannered, so we ignore the large, red flashing warning lights raging in our heads and continue without caution. I once met a girl who expressed great sadness that she just couldn't trust the men she met online. She then continued to tell me a story about any of these guys who spent days (yes, days) wooing her via email. He told her stories of his limitless wealth and his connections to powerful people all around the globe. She slept with him on the second date (after he promised to whisk her off to a private island that next weekend). But that's 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 simply no longer trust men she met online was a bit like complaining about how she could merely no longer trust Nigerian princes.
Tone Down the Boudoir Shots. You say you want an excellent man who respects you as a human being and is interested in having a serious relationship on you, then you post pictures of yourself next to your bed (or in your bed, or in your bed, or in someone else's bed). And if you're not posting photographs of yourself next to your bed, (or on your bed, or in your bed), you're posting pictures with way too much cleavage. Now, that is completely wonderful - I have no difficulty at all with this, and I'm certain many guys do not have a problem either - but what some men do have a problem with is when women place said super-sexy glamor pictures and then complain to their buddies, or make statements on their profiles about how all men are dogs and just need them for sex. And while we're on the subject 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 probably adore them), but I do think it is significant that we at least strive for truthfulness. The word on the street is that way too many women out there in the online dating world are using the "athletic and toned" descriptor in reference to their "about average" bodies (this complaint applies to guys as well, of course). The matter is, there really isn't anything wrong with having an about typical (or curvy) body so let us take the pressure off ourselves and heed the advice of Amy Schuler, and recognize 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. Photos. I really like Instagram photographs because lots of the filters make my eyes seem strikingly blue (or green, or lavender), and some even shave about 10 years off my face. But do I post these pictures on my internet dating profile? No I do not. Why? Bay Tree, Alberta Cheap Hookers. Because my eyes aren't actually that blue (or green or lavender), and I am about 10 years older than my Instagram photos would have you believe. This was the number one complaint among the men I interviewed - artistically filtered (i.e., deceptive) pictures. Truth in advertising ladies, truth in advertising.
Waaaay too Many Pet Pictures. This was a huge criticism among the guys I interviewed. They are taking a look at your profile to find out more about you, not your pets. So delete the pet pictures, particularly the ones without you in them. Oh and while we're on the subject of pet photos, I got a private request of all you single, middle aged women out there on dating websites: please, please, please delete any and all pictures of your cats. This is so important. I can't stress it enough. Single, middle-aged women already must cope with far too many negative stereotypes, along with the cat photos (you cuddling with your cats, you kissing your cats, multiple cats on your bed) only function to reinforce them. I once composed a blog post about how dating occasionally made me feel unwelcome , and I got hundreds of comments from single middle-aged men throughout all of North America notifying me that I must live in a dark apartment with 100 or so cats, so actually, please delete them.
