I've decided 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. Relationship after, say, 58 or 59 is NOT worth the attempt imo. Maybe 'cause eventually you're stuck with all these bitter, old, paranoid,hypocritical boomer men. I don't know....Am alright with my solitude now. Crave it actually (bf and I have a long distance relationship but just 72 miles). Cheap hookers nearest Laval-Ouest. We are just apart about 4 nights before reunited though. And plan to reside together sooner or later 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 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 stated numerous times on this particular blog, I also was only able to date younger (my usual preference 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 (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 endeavor youthfulness and look, on a good day, in my 40s still. So, I've had a clear edge. I guess I'm one of the fortunate ones, but I believe it is a combo of my style, a kind of God luminescence"/spiritualityand looks. Men have ever been brought to me in person. Big time. Occasionally it was flattering and occasionally a issue 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. Definitely a man can collect much about a girl from reading her profile, and women are often so inundated with answers from inferior matches that they become exasperated and begin to set borders; yet for me this language indicates an attitude of entitlement and self-absorption, and suggests perhaps an assumption that she's the more desired one in the deal. Maybe women are used to being pursued. A more thoughtful mature girl will realize that relationships aren't just about her and her needs. Clearly guys can frequently behave exactly the same way, only wanting sex. I consider the deeper truth is that many folks simply blunder unconsciously into relationships, compelled by their poorly understood desires, knowing neither themselves or what they want from a relationship.
Debby, you are talking 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. 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 believe it is all about a cynical cash grab, I need to tell you we elderly guys, like some older women attract the opposite sex. Sadly, a lot of people don't attract the opposite sex. nature is cruel.
Men over 45 do have more choices regarding dating. But there are ways around this. First, a girl has to expressly state 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 none of them really say what they offer a man. Generally, itis a record of demands and choices. This is not great marketing. A lady should have the ability to answer the question What do I provide a man he wants?" If she doesn't understand, (or is offended by the question) she's not prepared for dating.
Kathleen, I am an older man and many 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 guys approaching older women are mostly, looking for what they consider to be the fastest method to get easy sex. They just reveal interest in men their particular 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 is the reason why I am not interested in the women, my age who approach me.
I get what you're saying. Laval-Ouest Quebec Cheap Hookers. When my marriage fell apart a year ago people tried to reassure me that I was a catch. And I still matter I should be - am tall, trim, seem young for 48, run my own successful firm, understand 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 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 genuine dates. I picked women in my date range and attractiveness range. Just to check I wrote to rather older women and less appealing than myself. Nothing. Got on Tinder and swiped almost every girl. Tried all kinds of graphics. Nothing. while I speak to my female friends they say they are inundated. The only dates I've had, 2, were from old buddies 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 look interested but they do not respond. Simply don't understand this, it's as if they expect me to pursue them and I 'm unwilling to do that because the two times I did that when my marriage was souring permanently alienated good pals. 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 noticed after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to virtually 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 begin contact with men in an age-range of about 3 years younger up to about 8 years older than myself. The potential matches the site sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look in the age-range that those guys want, (usually 35-50) I often move past them, knowing I can't compete with women in their desired range, even though many of those guys are as much as 5-8 years old than me. Laval-Ouest cheap hookers! In other words, intentionally sends me matches that are likely not realistic for me to pursue. When I have e-mailed some 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'm within their desired range, I still do not get much of a response. I presume the reason behind this is they can get younger women to react to them, so why would they go for me when they've a chance with the 45 year-old model of me? If their first wife was their age, such as, for instance, a college honey or whatever, they likely feel entitled to a newer version, so to speak. Our culture encourages this. It is frustrating, as well as depressing and more than a little humiliating. It's the builtin folly of on-line sites: you are just defined by your actual age, in bold type right next to your user name.
One more thing. I'd like to ask all my middleaged online dating male and female compatriots a favor. Please, let's rid our profiles of these overused phrases once and for all: glass-half-full, sensual, drama-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 friends/mom/ex/kids tell me that..I'm a glass-half-total 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 locate some common ground and get back to the business of falling in love (or at least having fun trying).
Quit Using Your Profile to Whine about Men. Several men noticed how many women's online dating profiles are included mostly of grievances about guys - either their profiles, or their conduct in general. I agree with the guys on this one. There's 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 make use of a blog for that). Cheap Hookers near Laval-Ouest 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 selections. We can maintain our positive expectations while at the same time heeding our inner voice that warns us when something isn't quite appropriate. Way too frequently some women are guided not by common sense, but by wishful thinking as well as a desire to be fine and not appear 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 just couldn't trust the guys she met online. She then continued 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 people all over the world. She slept with him on the 2nd date (after he promised to whisk her away 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 folks." And guess what? Yep! Her identity was stolen. Complaining about how she could simply no longer trust men 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 an excellent man who respects you as a human being and is interested in having a serious relationship on you, then you post photos of yourself next to your bed (or in your bed, or in your bed, or in someone else's bed). And if you aren't posting pictures of yourself next to your bed, (or on your bed, or in your bed), you are posting pictures with far too much cleavage. Now, that's completely wonderful - I have no difficulty at all with this, and I'm certain many guys don't have a problem either - but what some guys do have a problem with is when women post said super-hot glamor pictures and then whine to their friends, or make statements on their profiles about how all men are dogs and just want them for sex. And while we are 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 love them), but I do think it is important that we at least strive for honesty. The word on the street is that far 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 criticism applies to guys as well, of course). The matter is, there actually is not anything wrong with having an around typical (or curvy) body thus let us 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 (correct, good guys?).
No. More. Instagram. Photographs. I really like Instagram photos because several of the filters make my eyes appear strikingly blue (or green, or lavender), and some even shave about 10 years off my face. But do I post these photographs on my online dating profile? No I do not. Why? Laval-Ouest, Quebec cheap hookers. Because my eyes aren't 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 complaint among the men I interviewed - artistically filtered (i.e., deceptive) pictures. Truth in advertising ladies, truth in advertising.
Manner too Many Pet Photographs. This was a tremendous complaint among the men I interviewed. They are taking a look at your profile to learn more about you, not your pets. So delete the pet photographs, especially the ones without you in them. Oh and while we're on the topic of pet pictures, 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 important. I can't stress it enough. Single, middle aged women already need to deal with far too many negative stereotypes, along with the cat photographs (you cuddling with your cats, you kissing your cats, multiple cats on your own bed) only function to fortify them. I once composed a blog post about how dating sometimes made me feel undesirable , and I got hundreds of opinions from single middle-aged men throughout all of North America telling me that I must live in a dark apartment with 100 or so cats, so really, please delete them.
