Acceptable dating age
Worse, they’re hypocritical about it, because they don’t understand why the vast majority of younger women won’t go for them.
And yet, the fastest growing segment for online dating is the 50 market. More people have computers and are aware of someone who found love online.
I’m not ashamed of my age and hiding it seems phony.
When I meet men in person in my daily life, I get a better response because they see the whole me, hear my voice, get a sense of what I’m like, all before they know how old I am, meaning I can be defined by other qualities.
Ive asked some of the guys my age who have contacted me as an “exception” about their success with their age range search.
It is often 10-20 years younger than them and these are very “average” appearing guys .
And the real-world opportunities can be few and far between. I can’t disagree with anything you’ve observed about online dating and age. So here are the facts: Older men have more options than older women (online and in real life) because they can usually date somewhat younger.
They have told me of their frustration with lack of responses.
What interesting is that younger guys ( early 40s) vs those my own age seem more interested.
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.
