For example, if you start dating someone who is 20 when you are 26 years old, they are within the acceptable age range, according to the rule, but it is the very limit of your minimum age range. We’ve been together for 10 years, married for 7. He gets erections when he light my cigarettes for me. He takes care of me while I take care of him. He still tells me I’m the woman of his dreams and I believe him.

This scenario is not just on, but on E-harmony, Ourtime, Plenty of Fish, OK Cupid, and the rest of the dating websites. Some of the members are flakier than piecrust. They seem interested, but after a few e-mails, they disappear. One theory is that many are not single. They’re coupled but bored, and hope to reassure themselves that they’re still attractive by hooking men like you.

On the other hand, if you’re twice divorced and have two grown-up kids and now have the time to start dating again, this will also help you find people who are at the same place in life as you are. Online dating is a challenge for us all, but it can be doubly hard for a senior woman with a much smaller pool of men to choose from. But as long as you make it clear what you want, and as long as you’re honest and don’t shy away from being your true authentic self, you can have fun when senior dating – and who knows? You might just open an exciting new chapter in your life. I’m spiritual and love having adventures and, in general, trying new things. I have got a lot of sides to me that sometimes surprise people.

Focus on her, not her age.

And I still have a very healthy interest. I became a widower in 2008 after nearly 20 years of marriage to my same age partner. She died just after our 50th birthday. We had sons ages 14 and 16 in the home.

Don’t try to sound too young on your dating profile.

And now most of you are bombs that have already detonated. Fact is, men like me are out there—and we have walked away from the western woman. We are dating the girl 20 years younger than us who is nice to us in a third world country. And we don’t care about her not having the corner office. That is another pertinent point feminism lied to you about—how you’re career status and degrees would impress us–it doesn’t.

All I can say Tom is to protect yourself. Don’t give yourself away all at once. Give any relationship a good deal of time to grow and develop, and pace yourself with the finances.

I am inspired by art, photography, and movies. I love spending time doing outdoorsy activities like hiking and gardening. I am compelled to experience new things through traveling. Some of my favorite destinations have been Bora Bora, Paris, Bali, and West New Guinea. I have lived in NYC, the Bay Area, and the rugged Big Sur coast. I love good conversation, laughter, and learning from people, places, experiences, failures, and especially my kids.

In this age group, I see way more overweight women than men and this is very unattractive. When middle age woman is not overweight, that’s attractive already, fit or not fit, and it shows on pictures. I have normal body, for a 53 it’s a bit heavier of course, sometimes I get very fit when I prepare for a marathon, but in general it doesn’t change my perspective on women. I’m just not attracted to women whose bodies don’t resemble a woman’s body anymore. Most or maybe all who chat me up look like guys, seriously.

You are leaving and going to the website of our trusted provider. The provider’s terms, conditions and policies apply. Please return to to learn more about other benefits. Women will, so you better know what they’ll find. Try to correct misinformation, or at least be prepared to prove that you’re not the escaped serial killer who shares your name. And while you’re at it, make sure your Facebook page won’t raise eyebrows.

My 44 year old wife informed me a few months ago that she was leaving. She said, amongst other things, that the age difference was beginning to bother her, that we were distancing at an exponential rate. I had never felt that, I stay fit, cycle, hike, and don’t weight much more than what I weighed at 21. I could keep up with her in most things.

Its not necessarily your or my fault, it just is. Well, it seems to be a total nightmare for both sides, judging from the comments I’d read here. I am in excellent shape physically – gym, swimming, mtb, hockey, etc. at 58. No signs of trouble down under either. I just find women close to my age too granma-like – the way they dress, the way they think, their interests, etc. – I still enjoy hikes in high mountains, downhill skiing, ocean swimming, working out. My ex did some of it with me for the first 10 years of marriage, but it was clearly a chore for her, not enjoyment.

He also has a boyish face and younger gals sometimes chase after him. This makes me feel insecure, even though I love him, and I sometimes wonder if I should have stayed in my age group. Women are very vain especially as they age and they might also get embarrassed if their beau is a lot younger than they are.

The opposite, it’s super easy for women as long as they are at least moderately attractive she will have tons of men after her. A man, lets say 50 and up is no longer desired. Women with intentions of having children don’t want a man this old because he will be in his 60s when the child is a teenager.

Also they entice you with notices that someone wants to contact you. They have thousands of complaints on file. It’s a very limited dating market for men 50 plus in America. You will get lots of broken or damaged folks to pick from. Most are divorced, past their prime, have health or money issues, or simply have nothing to offer. I had 1400 women look at me, I contacted 40, 10 responded, and none wanted to meet for coffee.
