I have decided if my bf and I break up (God PROHIBIT as I am very in love with him) I won't return to online dating but will give celibacy a shot. Relationship after, say, 58 or 59 is NOT worth the attempt imo. Perhaps 'cause eventually you are stuck with all these bitter, old, paranoid,hypocritical boomer men. I actually don't know....Am alright with my isolation now. Crave it really (bf and I have a long distance relationship but just 72 miles). Cheap Hookers nearby Chambly. We are just apart about 4 nights before reunited though. And plan to reside 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 site, I also was just competent to date younger (my normal taste except for my present same-age bf) cause I lied about my age. Shaved off quite a few years too girls! lol I was born in 1953, but wouldput 1960 or1961 on my profile. What helped is I 've a killer figure (slim, 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 job 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 that it's a combo of my character, a kind of God luminescence"/spiritualityand looks. Men have always been attracted to me in person. Big time. Occasionally it was flattering and sometimes a issue frankly.
I 've 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. Certainly a man can gather much about a girl from reading her profile, and women are often so inundated with answers 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 maybe an assumption that she's the more desirable one in the deal. Perhaps women are used to being pursued. A more sensible mature girl will comprehend that relationships are not just about her and her needs. Certainly guys can frequently behave exactly the same style, just wanting sex. I consider the more profound truth is the fact that many folks simply blunder automatically into relationships, compelled by their ill comprehended desires, understanding neither themselves or what they need from a relationship.
Debby, you are discussing rot as far as I am concerned. I am 62 and let me tell you, I Have had nights" with women 20-30 years younger and they do not even ask what I do for a job. Certainly the long term prospects are not good with a much 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 all about a cynical cash grab, I have to inform you we old guys, like some older women attract the opposite sex. Regrettably, many people don't attract the opposite sex. nature is cruel.
Men over 45 do have more alternatives regarding dating. However there are ways around this. First, a woman has to specifically say what she offers a guy (that he wants) in the context of dating and relationships. I have read a large number of female profiles (35-55 years old) and virtually not one of them actually state what they offer a man. Usually, it's a list of demands and preferences. This really isn't good advertising. A lady must be able to answer the question What do I offer a guy he desires?" If she doesn't know, (or is offended by the question) she is not prepared 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 are. It is only that all the younger guys approaching mature women are predominantly, looking for what they consider to be the quickest way to get easy sex. They just reveal interest in guys their own age when the supply of younger men dries up, or the men begin to lose interest in them. it is insulting to me. And that is why I'm not interested in the women, my age who approach me.
I get what you're saying. Chambly Quebec 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, 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 location (Alaska). As a result I'm very busy 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 genuine dates. I picked women in my own date range and attractiveness range. Simply to check I wrote to rather mature women and less attractive than myself. Nothing. Got on Tinder and swiped virtually every woman. Attempted all types of graphics. Nothing. When I speak to my female friends they say they're inundated. The sole dates I've had, 2, were from old pals who both told me they'd been fantasising about me for years but then they left it at that and infrequently return my calls. At Meetups women look interested however they don't respond. Just don't 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 marriage was souring forever 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 am aging out" of internet dating. I've found after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the reply I get on has dropped to almost nothing. It is as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death knell for a dating life. I begin contact with men in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself. The potential matches that the website sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look in the age-range that those guys desire, (typically 35-50) I frequently 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 older than me. Chambly Cheap Hookers! To put it differently, intentionally sends me matches which are probably not realistic for me to pursue. When I've e-mailed a few of these men, I never hear back. I'm guessing they check out my profile, see my age, and likely read no further. Even if I am within their desired range, I still don't get much of a response. 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 have a chance with the 45 year-old version 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 supports this. It is frustrating, as well as depressing and more than a little humiliating. It's the built in folly of online sites: you're simply defined by your age, in bold type right next to your user name.
One more thing. I would like to ask all of 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's omit these too: "I look 10 years younger than I am," "I loathe talking about myself, but..." and all derivatives of "my pals/mom/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 really agree to clean up our profiles then perhaps, just perhaps, we can locate some common ground and get back to the company of falling in love (or at least having fun trying).
Stop Using Your Profile to Whine about Men. Several guys noticed how many women's online dating profiles are comprised chiefly of grievances 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 story as a soapbox for your negative perception of all single, middle-aged men (for heaven's sakes use a blog for that). Cheap Hookers closest to Chambly, Quebec. So while I am 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 favorable expectations while at the same time heeding our inner voice that warns us when something is not quite correct. Far too often some women are guided not by common sense, but by wishful thinking and a desire to be nice 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 simply could not 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 e-mail. He told her stories of his limitless prosperity and his links to powerful people all around the globe. She slept with him on the second date (after he assured 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 people." And guess what? Yep! Her identity was stolen. Whining about how she could only no longer trust men she met online was a bit like whining about how she could merely no longer trust Nigerian princes.
Tone Down the Boudoir Shots. You say you want an excellent guy who honors you as a human being and is interested in having a serious relationship with you, and then you post pictures of yourself next to your bed (or on your own bed, or in your bed, or in somebody else's bed). And if you're not posting photos of yourself next to your bed, (or on your bed, or in your bed), you are posting photographs with way too much cleavage. Now, that's completely fine - I don't have any trouble 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 glamour photos and then complain to their buddies, or make statements on their profiles about how all men are dogs and only need them for sex. And while we are on the subject of complaint-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 love them), but I do believe it's important 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 utilizing 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 is not anything wrong with having an around average (or curvy) body so let us take the pressure off ourselves and heed the advice of Amy Schuler, and understand 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 (correct, good guys?).
No. More. Instagram. Photos. I really like Instagram photos because many of the filters make my eyes appear strikingly blue (or green, or lavender), and some even shave about ten years off my face. But do I post these photos on my online dating profile? No I don't. Why? Chambly Quebec cheap hookers. Because my eyes are not really that blue (or green or lavender), and I'm about 10 years older than my Instagram pictures would have you believe. This was the number one criticism among the men I interviewed - artistically filtered (i.e., deceptive) pictures. Truth in advertising women, truth in marketing.
Waaaay too Many Pet Pictures. This was a huge criticism among the men I interviewed. They're taking a look at your profile to learn more about you, not your pets. So delete the pet photos, particularly the ones without you in them. Oh and while we are 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 photos of your cats. This really is so important. I can't stress it enough. Single, middle aged women already must manage far too many negative stereotypes, and the cat photos (you cuddling with your cats, you kissing your cats, multiple cats on your bed) just serve 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 telling me that I must live in a dark flat with 100 or so cats, so actually, please delete them.
