On job applications and dating websites it's better to be absolutely ridiculous Sex chat one on one chat
I initiate 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 site sends me are age appropriate for me, but when I look at the age-range that those men desire, (usually 35-50) I often move past them, knowing I can’t compete with women in their desired range, even though many of those men are as much as 5-8 years older than me!
More unhappy couples are getting divorced when the kids leave the house. We also know that dating online does not mean that you’re not dating men you meet in real life. If you meet a guy through friends, at the market, at a concert, great.
Having a profile on isn’t going to keep you from doing that.
And you may be trying your best, but you’re not truly maximizing your potential. Which is like saying you’re going on a diet by cutting out sugar, but continuing to eat large portions of fried foods.
In all likelihood, despite your efforts, I’m betting your profile can be better, your photos can be better, your responses to men could be better, your initial emails to men could be better, and your choices in men could be better. My recommendation – if you haven’t done it already – is to go through every word in Finding the One Online. You don’t have to quit online dating to meet men in real life.
They refuse to even consider women their own age, even if she’s fit and attractive.I don’t mean those men any disrespect, I just want to date a guy closer to my age so that I have a longer future with him, and I don’t feel that I should have to apologize for that.I have taken your and others’ advice about profile writing, and I have great photos, so I feel confident that the problem is not in how I present myself. It always comes out eventually and I’d hate to have to explain myself then. I’ve noticed after my last birthday (I turned 54 in June) that the response I get on has dropped to almost nothing.It’s as though moving from the early 50s to the mid 50s is some kind of death-knell for a dating life.
Oh, the agony of how true it is (and when you’re in college, it’s “Learn the most boring way to write”).
