I feel like you need to further examine your attitude moving forward. Keep being true to yourself and try to stay positive. It might mean less pain for me in the long run, even though I enjoyed marriage when I had it, hard work and all. I have found that the forward thinking of younger men 20s is a tremendous boost in a relationship. Online dating is for all ages now, younger to older and there are plenty of single folks out there at this age too.
My husband and I are 14 years apart. It is brutal out there dating. In this age group, I see way more overweight women than men and this is very unattractive. With the exception of one woman that was close to my She, all of them are younger then me by anywhere from 8 to 25 years. Except celebrities who can really do it, all talk about guys preference to date women the age of their daughters is just a cliche. We love you and want the best for you guys, so listen up. I would never date a woman my age 50 — why would I? She can be my wife, partner, etc.
Some choose to be honest, and some choose to play games. So, as a woman who also adores intellectual connection… older men losing me right there! Life has a lot to offer and I plan to take full advantage of it. How about in the world there are a lot of attractive 50 + yr old women. I had two children so we attempted to get beyond this but she ended up leaving after 27 yeas of marriage. I realize the idea of that type of commitment these days makes men like deer in headlights. Pros There is a lot of choice of men and every day I get winks and emails, which makes me feel popular.
Life is good, whether you are 30,40,50 or 60+ just adapt your outlook on life. Keep up the fight and the outreach. At one time I had no less than 15 male friends between ages of 44-56 in my phone. Sometimes, but very very rarely I see a woman 10-15 years younger married to a 50+ guy but only when she really needs the stable life and support. Jojo I really feel this is too negative. But a younger woman will want a younger guy.
Yes, some women are picky about looks, but many women are more flexible with what they will find attractive in a guy than most men realize. Take me out and give me flowers once in a while. Thanks for sharing I am just trying to understand though, wouldn't younger men on average make for better long term partners because they are more progressive and forward thinking? Those and countless other things should be your reason for feeling confident. We probably all need to feel loved a appreciated by someone whether it is someone our age or someone younger or even older. I know this is more about my personal preference than the typical May-December relationship you have in mind, but that's what I've got. They take much better care of themselves and they are Interested in sex.
I think more relationships than ever start online these days! Initially when I became single again I gave those men attention, after few dates I found them extremely boring. The want for financial security is understandable for a relationship. Im lookin for dailey companion for long term say 35 yrs plus. I go to Vegas alone 4 times a year and have a blast! So, my caution is to listen to your gut and follow your instincts while dating. Some days I can deal with it ok, and sometimes not. Considering globalization, immigration, the rising 3rd world and how the favouring of boy babies in some cultures has left their population short of women it may even swing the other way for the following generatons.
Then comes the laundry list of deal-breakers. I have had around 6 relationships since divorce. Thanks Linda for this article. It will bring you a wonderful surprises as well as your lover back to you The way things were meant to be. Many of them have come out of loveless, passionless long-term marriages and would be more than happy to have a one-night stand.
Thats a category of people I know for women, myself included. And just a thought of being together with a man 10-15 + years older seems little too much! But, you have to really want it to go after it and put up with the angst that comes with dating again. It's not easy point to out some one needs to fix A B and C, it makes you feel like a bad guy, and it's exhausting. He betrayed me several times already. These need to be nurtured because chances are there will not be a partner to usher you into old age, and community is probably the most important aspect of successful aging. Doing what has meaning for you is very important in life. Do not do anything that would impair your judgment and cause you to make a decision you could regret.
The sooner you let go of the idea that your not-so-good-looks are holding you back, the sooner you can get on with discovering what women really find attractive in a man. I am truly happy where I am with my life and if I find someone they will just add to my happiness. I don't want someone who has children personal choice. But has anything really changed? He asked what the hell that was, that he needed some. It is no wonder that women who have witnessed these delusional types has no respect towards men in general and keep spreading that bad reputation. But I have considered widows, so that makes me a bit inconsistent, Lol. On another note I was reading another site that was telling its readers the ideal age difference for when dating.
