I've determined if my bf and I break up (God FORBID as I'm very in love with him) I won't return to online dating but will give celibacy a chance. Dating after, say, 58 or 59 is NOT worth the attempt imo. Maybe 'cause finally you're stuck with all these bitter, old, paranoid,hypocritical boomer guys. I really don't know....Am acceptable with my isolation now. Crave it actually (bf and I have a long distance relationship but only 72 miles). Cheap hookers closest to Travers. We are only apart about 4 nights before reunited though. And intend to live together at some point in the future. So my dating experience can be best summed up by the old standard Just in Time". Listen to the Streisand version circa 1965.
The funny thing is both me and my present 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 stated numerous times on this particular site, I also was just able to date younger (my usual preference except for my present same-age bf) cause I lied about my age. Shaved off quite several years too girls! lol I was born in 1953, but wouldput 1960 or1961 on my profile. What helped is I have a killer figure (slender, but curves, 36D) and pretty face thanks to years of intermittant plastic surgery (but nothing below the waist 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 suppose I'm one of the lucky ones, but I believe it is a combo of my character, a kind of God glow"/spiritualityand seems. Men have always been brought to me in person. Big time. Occasionally it was flattering and sometimes a problem frankly.
I have exactly 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. Certainly a guy can assemble much about a girl from reading her profile, and women are often so inundated with answers from inferior matches they become exasperated and start to set borders; yet for me this language implies an attitude of entitlement and self absorption, and indicates perhaps an assumption that she is the more desired one in the deal. Maybe women are accustomed to being pursued. A more sensible mature girl will comprehend that relationships are not just about her and her needs. Clearly men can often behave exactly the same manner, just wanting sex. I believe the deeper truth is that most people just blunder automatically into relationships, compelled by their ill comprehended desires, knowing neither themselves or what they want from a relationship.
Debby, you are speaking 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 do not even ask what I do for a job. Sure the long term prospects are not great with a considerably younger girl. But in my experience a great deal of much younger women go for me. They say I'm a silver fox and handsome lol - Sorry, but as much as youwant to consider it's all about a cynical money grab, I must tell you we elderly men, like some elderly women bring the opposite sex. Unfortunately, many people don't bring the opposite sex. nature is cruel.
Men over 45 do have more choices regarding dating. However 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 thousands of female profiles (35-55 years old) and almost none of them really say what they provide a guy. Generally, it is a record of demands and preferences. This really is not good marketing. A woman should be able to answer the question What do I provide a guy that he desires?" If she does not know, (or is offended by the question) she's not ready for dating.
Kathleen, I am an old guy and many women on line in my age group make out they are not interested in the younger guys. But of course they are. It is only that all the younger guys approaching senior women are mostly, looking for what they consider to be the fastest way to get easy sex. They just show interest in men their own age when the supply of younger guys dries up, or the guys start to lose interest in them. it is insulting to me. And that is the reason why I'm not interested in the women, my age who approach me.
I get what you are saying. Travers Alberta Cheap Hookers. When my marriage fell apart a year ago people attempted to reassure me that I was a catch. And I still matter I should be - am tall, clean-cut, seem youthful for 48, run my own successful business, understand the way to dance, am a community leader with environmental education and in my profession, lecture at university, write, from an exotic area (Alaska). As a result I'm really active so online dating looked like the answer. But in fact in six I can count on one hand the amount of women that have written back and no actual dates. I decided women in my own date range and attractiveness range. Just to check I wrote to quite older women and not as appealing than myself. Nothing. Got on Tinder and swiped practically every girl. Tried all types of pictures. Nothing. When I speak to my female friends they say they're inundated. The sole dates I've had, 2, were from old friends who both told me they had been fantasising about me for years but then they left it at that and seldom return my calls. At Meetups women appear interested however they do not answer. Simply don't realize this, it's as if they expect me to pursue them and I am unwilling to do that because the two times I did that when my marriage was souring permanently alienated good buddies. Really out to sea on all of this - so much has changed since I was last dating 26 years ago.
I feel like I 'm aging out" of internet dating. I have seen after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the reply I get on has dropped to almost nothing. It's 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 that the website sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look at the age-range that those guys want, (normally 35-50) I regularly 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. Travers Cheap Hookers! To put it differently, intentionally sends me matches that are probably not realistic for me to pursue. When I've emailed 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 am within their desired range, I still do not get much of a reply. I suppose 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. It's frustrating, not to mention depressing and more than a little humiliating. It's 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 middleaged online dating male and female compatriots a favor. Please, let us rid our profiles of these overused phrases once and for all: glass-half-full, sexy, 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 any and all derivatives of "my buddies/mother/ex-husband/kids tell me that..I'm 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 maybe, just perhaps, we can locate some common ground and get back to the company of falling in love (or at least having fun trying).
Cease Using Your Profile to Whine about Men. Several men noticed how many women's online dating profiles are included primarily of criticisms about men - either their profiles, or their behavior in general. I agree with the men on this one. There's 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 blog for that). Cheap Hookers in Travers, Alberta. So while I'm certain there are guys (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. Way too frequently some women are guided not by common sense, but by wishful thinking and a want to be fine and not seem impolite, so we ignore the big, red flashing warning lights raging in our heads and proceed without caution. I once met a woman who expressed great depression that she simply could not trust the guys she met online. She then proceeded to tell me a story about one of these men who spent days (yes, days) wooing her via e-mail. He told her stories of his limitless abundance and his connections to powerful individuals all around the globe. She slept with him on the second date (after he promised to whisk her away 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 vetted 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.
Tone Down the Boudoir Shots. You say you desire a quality guy 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 on your own 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 photographs with way too much cleavage. Now, that is certainly fine - I don't have any difficulty at all with this, and I am certain many guys don't have a problem either - but what some men do have a problem with is when women post said super-hot glamour photos and then whine to their buddies, or make statements on their profiles about how all men are dogs and just want them for sex. And while we are on the topic of complaint-filled profiles...
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 honesty. The word on the street is the fact that way too many women out there in the online dating world are using the "fit and toned" descriptor in reference to their "about average" bodies (this criticism applies to men as well, of course). The matter is, there actually isn't anything wrong with having an around typical (or curvy) body so let's 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 love Instagram photos because many of the filters make my eyes look strikingly blue (or green, or lavender), and some even shave about ten years off my face. But do I post these photographs on my online dating profile? No I don't. Why? Travers Alberta Cheap Hookers. Because my eyes are not actually that blue (or green or lavender), and I'm about 10 years older than my Instagram photos would have you believe. This was the number one criticism among the men I interviewed - artistically filtered (i.e., delusory) photographs. Truth in advertising women, truth in marketing.
Waaaay too Many Pet Photographs. This was a tremendous complaint among the men I interviewed. They're looking at your profile to learn more about you, not your pets. So delete the pet photos, especially the ones without you in them. Oh and while we're on the topic of pet photographs, I 've a personal 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 really is so significant. I can not emphasize it enough. Single, middle-aged women already have to cope with much too many negative stereotypes, and the cat pictures (you cuddling with your cats, you kissing your cats, multiple cats on your bed) just function to strengthen them. I once wrote a blog post about how dating occasionally made me feel unwelcome , and I got hundreds of opinions from single middle-aged men throughout all of North America advising me that I must live in a dark flat with 100 or so cats, so actually, please delete them.
