I have determined if my bf and I break up (God PROHIBIT as I am quite in love with him) I won't return to online dating but will give celibacy a chance. Relationship after, say, 58 or 59 ISN'T worth the effort imo. Perhaps 'cause eventually you are stuck with all these bitter, old, paranoid,hypocritical boomer guys. I really don't know....Am ok with my isolation now. Crave it really (bf and I 've a long distance relationship but only 72 miles). Cheap hookers near Gros-Morne. We're merely apart about 4 nights before reunited though. And plan 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 variant circa 1965.
The amusing thing is both me and my present bf JUST 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 site, I also was just capable to date younger (my usual taste 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 've a killer figure (slim, but curves, 36D) and pretty face thanks to years of intermittant plastic surgery (but nothing below the waistline til recently (coolsculpting which I recommend). Myplastic surgeon's nurse says I job youthfulness and look, on a good day, in my 40s still. So, I've had a clear edge. I figure I'm one of the lucky ones, but I think that it's a combo of my personality, a sort of God glow"/spiritualityand seems. Men have ever been attracted 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 man can collect much about a girl from reading her profile, and women are often so inundated with answers from poor matches that they become exasperated and begin 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 accustomed to being pursued. A more thoughtful mature girl will comprehend that relationships are not just about her and her needs. Definitely guys can frequently behave the same way, just wanting sex. I consider the more profound truth is that many folks simply blunder unconsciously into relationships, compelled by their badly comprehended desires, knowing neither themselves or what they want from a connection.
Debby, you're talking rot as far as I am concerned. I'm 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. Sure the long term prospects are not good with a much 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 youwant to consider it is all about a cynical cash grab, I have to inform you we old men, like some old women attract the opposite sex. Sadly, many people don't bring the opposite sex. nature is unkind.
Men over 45 do have more choices regarding dating. However there are certain ways around this. First, a girl has to specifically state what she offers a guy (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 actually state what they offer a man. Typically, it is a list of demands and choices. This really is not great marketing. A woman must be able to answer the question What do I provide a guy he desires?" If she does not understand, (or is offended by the question) she is not ready 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 guys. But of course they're. It is only that all the younger men approaching older women are mostly, looking for what they consider to be the quickest way to get easy sex. They only show interest in men their own age when the supply of younger men dries up, or the men start to lose interest in them. it is 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're saying. Gros-Morne Quebec Cheap Hookers. When my marriage fell apart a year ago people tried to reassure me that I was a grab. And I still thing I should be - am tall, clean-cut, seem youthful for 48, run my own successful company, 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 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 date range and attractiveness range. Simply to check I wrote to rather old women and less attractive than myself. Nothing. Got on Tinder and swiped virtually every girl. Attempted all types of graphics. Nothing. When I speak to my female friends they say they are inundated. The sole dates I've had, 2, were from old friends who both told me they'd been fantasising about me for years but then they left it at that and seldom return my calls. At Meetups women appear interested but they do not respond. Simply do not recognize this, it is as if they expect me to pursue them and I 'm unwilling to do that because the two times I did that when my union 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 ago.
I feel like I 'm aging out" of online dating. I have found after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the answer I get on has dropped to almost nothing. It's as though proceeding from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some form of death-knell for a dating life. I initiate 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 men desire, (usually 35-50) I regularly go past them, knowing I can not compete with women in their desired range, even though many of those men are as much as 5-8 years older than me. Gros-Morne Cheap Hookers! To put it differently, knowingly sends me matches which are probably not realistic for me to pursue. When I have emailed a few 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 am within their desired range, I still do not 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 model of me? If their first wife was their age, such as, for instance, a school love or whatever, they probably feel entitled to a newer model, 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 online sites: you're just defined by your actual age, in bold type right next to your user name.
One more thing. I'd like to ask all of 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, sensuous, play-free, and easygoing. And these, let us omit these too: "I look 10 years younger than I am," "I hate talking about myself, but..." and any and all derivatives of "my buddies/mother/ex/kids tell me that..I am 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 maybe, we can locate some common ground and get back to the business of falling in love (or at least having fun trying).
Cease Using Your Profile to Complain about Men. Several guys noted how many women's online dating profiles are comprised primarily of criticisms about men - either their profiles, or their behaviour in general. I agree with the men on this one. There is no point in using your profile story as a soapbox for your negative understanding of all single, middle-aged men (for heaven's sakes use a site for that). Cheap hookers nearest Gros-Morne, Quebec. So while I am sure there are guys (and women) out there who are logged on and acting badly, I believe that women must take responsibility for their own choices. We can maintain our positive 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 and also a desire to be nice and not seem ill-mannered, so we ignore the big, red flashing warning lights raging in our heads and continue without caution. I once met a girl who expressed great depression that she just could not trust the guys she met online. She then continued to tell me a story about one of these guys who spent days (yes, days) wooing her via e-mail. He told her stories of his limitless prosperity and his connections to powerful individuals all around the world. 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 checked by "his people." And guess what? Yep! Her identity was stolen. Whining about how she could just no longer trust men she met online was a bit like whining about how she could just 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 on you, 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 aren't posting photographs of yourself next to your bed, (or on your bed, or in your bed), you're posting photos with far too much cleavage. Now, that is completely great - I have no issue at all with this, and I am sure many guys do not have a problem either - but what some men do have a problem with is when women place said super-hot glamour shots 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'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 almost certainly adore them), but I do believe it's significant that we at least strive for truthfulness. The word on the street is the fact that far 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 guys as well, of course). The thing is, there actually is not anything wrong with having an around typical (or curvy) body thus let's 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 (correct, good guys?).
No. More. Instagram. Photos. I really like Instagram photos because lots of the filters make my eyes seem 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 do not. Why? Gros-Morne Quebec Cheap Hookers. Because my eyes are not actually that blue (or green or lavender), and I'm about 10 years older than my Instagram photographs would have you believe. This was the number one criticism among the guys I interviewed - artistically filtered (i.e., delusory) photographs. Truth in advertising ladies, truth in marketing.
Manner too Many Pet Photographs. This was a tremendous criticism among the men I interviewed. They are looking 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're on the topic of pet photographs, I have a private request of all you single, middle-aged women out there on dating websites: please, please, please delete any and all photographs of your cats. This is so significant. I can not emphasize it enough. Single, middle-aged women already must handle far too many negative stereotypes, along with the cat photographs (you cuddling with your cats, you kissing your cats, multiple cats in your bed) merely function to fortify them. I once wrote a blog post about how dating sometimes made me feel undesirable , and I got hundreds of comments from single middle-aged men throughout all of North America informing me that I must live in a dark flat with 100 or so cats, so really, please delete them.
