Many men are dishonest about themselves and their intentions and most of the men in my age bracket seem to be dating women in their 20s and early 30s anyway. Okay, Evan, I agree mostly with. After that I moved to a very rural area and simply never met anyone. A man in his 40s or 50s is likely either married or divorced.
I swore in my 30s…i will never be one of those sad 50somethings looking for a guy…. Bottom line he is 58 and so broken Viagra won t work only surgery or a pump. Maybe changing things about ourselves or changing our profession. After that comes personality, but this is another subject. The truth is that The Bitter Gal has been playing the victim for most if not all of her life. Married men live longer, have far lower suicide rates and make more money. You have educated us and given more proof to my teaching that Good Grownup Men are all around us.
My family was forever, I believed that. Every woman needs to read your wise, compassionate, passionate perspective. No one should allow their past relationships dictate their current situation. An attractive woman in her 20s may sit coyly and bat her eyes, and merely select her choice of suitor from the ensuing male attention. There is another type I have run into which is probably more like the Princess… She is the Emotional Shark.
You can Let me know what you think! I flirt with younger women because they actually act like they like me. And women who know how to have a good laugh are popular too. I am appreciative of the feedback although it is a little brutal.

He doesn't play by the grass is always greener set of rules by floating three or more tentative dates to wait until the very last minute before deciding which is the best one to take.

He was 41 years old and appeared very fit and healthy…anyway, after healing from the grief, a bit over a year later, I decided to put myself out into the dating fray. And marry your own age or closer and form a relationship to love with someone your own age. To have feelings before you get all touchy feely with me? I am 53 and am on friendly terms with several women in their 40s, who are keenly looking for someone to settle down with. Men have friends from childhood. I typed up a huge spiel on my ex, but… nah. Losing material stuff that allowed to some freedom of movement.
Will there be some men who will pass because of your situation? I tried online dating but it seems a big waste of time reading profiles and writing messages that go unanswered. No offense, still sounds like legalized prostitution. I just tried to fix a sexpot, bitter, princess. Any wonder the world is in such a mess. I think there are men that fit every single category in this too. I was married young and I had the idea that I could change the man of his habits. We all have stuff to work on, right? Taking some time to recover from this, and too work on myself has been amazing.
I do miss having that best friend you can cuddle with but dating has become so much work. But I feel like the chasm between me and other men is too great — culturally. If you want the fairy tale 60 year marriage where you hold hands in the park when you retire rich and happy, then you need to realize that not only is this very rare in our economic times, but that couple that you are judging us by had plenty of rough times where they had to buckle down and wait it out. There is no emotional investment in the woman. But for a marriage that ended in tears, it had many good years that unfortunately could not be salvaged. Millennial men are ridiculous and also now highly feminized. Time creates wisdom — but it also creates responsibilities and complications — mortgage, kids, career, etc.
Someone who will appreciate what my age and wisdom brings to the partnership. Except celebrities who can really do it, all talk about guys preference to date women the age of their daughters is just a cliche.

I think a connection with someone a little younger, my age or even older is more realistic. One gentleman I went out with is now a friend ~ we both enjoy skydiving and are planning a couple of jumps when the weather is nicer.
I am confident that my soul mate is out there. It is meant to be a great experience between two people who are attracted to each other. My sisters husband of 23yrs dumped her for someone 3 yrs older than their daughter…. I have a great friend and colleague who writes great profiles for you. In fact, I just finished my Fix Your Man Picker course that teaches women how to attract and choose men who will truly make them happy. He does not like to enjoy life not have the time since his demanding job take most of the time. Try liking someone regardless if they are a little overweight, drive a 7 year old car, and flirt with younger women.
I know a few that do this and when I ask them out, they look at me like I had two heads. I can honestly say that when I first met him, I had no clue that he was his age…I knew he was legal because we worked together. Hurricane michael, is far easier now that come with each other. This goes back to being confident in who you are. So ladies…like a gentleman told me. Today, we are completely different people and it seems like we just keep growing farther apart.
