I 've the same observation. Cheap Hookers nearby Coutts. 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. Definitely a man can gather much about a lady from reading her profile, and women in many cases are so inundated with responses from poor matches they become exasperated and start to establish boundaries; yet for me this language indicates 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 considerate mature woman will recognize that relationships are not just about her and her needs. Clearly men can often behave the same style, only wanting sex. I believe the deeper truth is that many folks just blunder unconsciously into relationships, compelled by their badly understood desires, knowing neither themselves or what they want from a relationship.
Debby, you're speaking rot as far as I'm 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 woman. 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 believe it is about a cynical cash grab, I have to inform you we mature men, like some older women attract the opposite sex. Regrettably, many people don't attract the opposite sex. nature is unkind.
Men over 45 do have more alternatives regarding dating. But there are certain ways around this. First, a girl has to expressly say what she offers a man (that he needs) in the context of dating and relationships. I have read tens of thousands of female profiles (35-55 years old) and nearly not one of them actually say what they provide a guy. Normally, itis a record of demands and preferences. This is not great marketing. A woman must have the ability to answer the question What do I provide a guy that he needs?" If she doesn't know, (or is offended by the question) she is not ready for dating.
Kathleen, I'm an old guy and most women on line in my age group make out they aren't interested in the younger guys. But of course they're. It is just that all the younger guys approaching senior women are predominantly, looking for what they consider to be the fastest method to get easy sex. They only reveal interest in guys their own age when the supply of younger guys dries up, or the men start to lose interest in them. It's insulting to me. And that's why I'm 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 tried to assure me that I was a catch. And I still thing I should be - am tall, trim, look young for 48, run my own successful company, know 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 answer. But in fact in six I can count on one hand the amount of women who have written back and no genuine dates. I decided women in my local date range and attractiveness range. Merely to check I wrote to fairly older women and less appealing than myself. Nothing. Got on Tinder and swiped nearly every woman. Tried all types of pictures. Nothing. When I speak to my female friends they say they are inundated. The sole dates I have 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 rarely return my calls. At Meetups women appear interested however they do not respond. Simply don't comprehend this, it is as if they expect me to pursue them and I 'm loath to do that because the two times I did that when my marriage was souring forever alienated good pals. Really out to sea on all of this - so much has changed since I was last dating 26 years ago.
I feel like I am aging out" of internet dating. I've seen after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to almost nothing. It is as though moving 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 potential matches that the site sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look at the age-range that those guys desire, (typically 35-50) I often go past them, knowing I can not compete with women in their desired 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 have e-mailed a number of those guys, I never 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 do not get much of a response. Coutts Canada Cheap Hookers. I suppose the reason for this is they can get younger women to react 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 honey or whatever, they likely feel entitled to a newer model, so to speak. Our culture encourages this. It's frustrating, as well as depressing and more than a little humiliating. It is the built-in folly of on-line sites: you are merely defined by your age, in bold type right next to your user name.
One more thing. I would 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, lusty, 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 friends/mom/ex/kids tell me that..I am a glass-half-complete optimist, who is easy going and looks 10 years younger than I am." I believe that if we can all really agree to clean up our profiles then maybe, just maybe, we can find some common ground and get back to the company of falling in love (or at least having fun trying).
Discontinue Using Your Profile to Complain about Men. Several men noticed how many women's online dating profiles are contained mostly of grievances about guys - either their profiles, or their behaviour in general. I agree with the guys on this one. There is absolutely no point in using your profile story as a soapbox for your negative perception of all single, middle-aged men (for heaven's sakes use a blog for that). So while I am sure there are men (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 keep our positive expectations while at the same time heeding our inner voice that warns us when something is not quite correct. Much too frequently some women are guided not by common sense, but by wishful thinking and also a want to be fine and not seem rude, so we discount the big, red flashing warning lights raging in our heads and proceed without caution. I once met a woman who expressed great dismay that she just couldn't trust the men she met online. She then proceeded to tell me a story about one of these guys 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 globe. She slept with him on the 2nd 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 vetted by "his people." And guess what? Yep! Her identity was stolen. Whining about how she could merely no longer trust guys she met online was a bit like complaining about how she could just no longer trust Nigerian princes.
Tone Down the Boudoir Photos. You say you desire a quality man who honors you as a human being and is interested in having a serious relationship with you, then you post photos of yourself next to your bed (or on your own bed, or in your bed, or in another person 's bed). Cheap Hookers near me Coutts Alberta. And if you're not posting photos of yourself next to your bed, (or on your bed, or in your bed), you are posting pictures with way too much cleavage. Now, that is completely great - I don't have any difficulty at all with this, and I'm certain many men do not have a problem either - but what some men do have a problem with is when women place said super-sexy glamour photos 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... Coutts, Canada Cheap Hookers.
Athletic and Toned Means, well, Athletic and Toned. I despise the body descriptors as much as you do (well, except for you size 0 women out there, you most likely adore them), but I do believe it is important that we at least strive for truthfulness. The word on the street is that way too many women out there in the internet dating world are utilizing the "fit and toned" descriptor in reference to their "about average" bodies (this complaint applies to men as well, of course). The thing is, there really is not anything wrong with having an about typical (or curvy) body so let's take the pressure off ourselves and heed the guidance 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. Pictures. I really like Instagram pictures because several 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 photos on my online dating profile? No I don't. Why? 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) photographs. Truth in advertising ladies, truth in marketing. Cheap Hookers closest to Coutts Alberta.
Waaaay too Many Pet Photos. This was a tremendous gripe among the guys I interviewed. They're looking at your profile to learn more about you, not your pets. So delete the pet photographs, particularly the ones without you in them. Oh and while we are on the topic of pet photos, I 've a private request of all you single, middle aged women out there on dating websites: please, please, please delete any and all photos of your cats. This is so important. I can not emphasize it enough. Single, middle-aged women already must deal with far too many negative stereotypes, and the cat photos (you cuddling with your cats, you kissing your cats, multiple cats on your own bed) merely function to bolster them. I once composed a blog post about how dating occasionally made me feel undesirable , and I got hundreds of opinions 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 really, please delete them.
Last week I discussed my six pet peeves about middle-aged men's online dating profiles , and I assured everyone that this week I'd concentrate on middle aged women's online dating profiles. Since I'm much more comfortable with men's profiles, I recruited some of my single male friends (and the Twittersphere) to help me with this specific post. This list is my best effort at summarizing the results of my informal survey, with some of my own observations based on a bit of research I ran myself. Disclaimer: if you're a girl between the ages of 45 and 60, living in the Chicagoland area, and I popped up on your "Viewed Me" list, I'm sorry, really. Anyway, here goes:
I can not say it any clearer than this: Don't post any selfies of yourself looking into your own bathroom mirror, period. Seeing a guy standing next to an open toilet, or just a toilet paper dispenser, is an immediate turn off. Take a selfie the way everyone else in the world does, by using a selfie stick and pretending as even though you're doing something fun (like fishing or watching football). Or, if you don't have a selfie stick, shoot your profile photo the old fashioned way by exploiting the reverse camera view on your smart phone and then snapping a selfie in your automobile. Worst comes to worst, have a friend take an action shot of you standing alone with a glass of wine pretending to laugh at someone just out of view. In case you don't have a single friend who can take your picture, or you do not own a smartphone, then you probably should not be dating in the first place.
I am not the sole one detecting these tendencies. Often, when I get together with my single girlfriends the matter of some men's online dating profiles is raised with a collective "what in the world were they thinking??" From time to time I've looked past these profile peculiarities and gone out with some of these men because I felt they were genuinely nice guys. Cheap Hookers nearest Coutts, Alberta. And let us just say that I was not surprised when they discussed their frustrations with online dating - of seldom receiving emails from women, of their emails often going unanswered. I needed to catch these guys by their shoulders, and give them a strong (albeit friendly) handshake, while sharing my suspicions about their errant marketing techniques. But I've consistently resisted the temptation to do so from a fear of seeming rude and ill-mannered.
