Women tend to stay much lower than the rule states is acceptable. If a woman’s maximum age range is 40, she is more likely to date someone who is around 37.

I never thought I would be doing this but I am and I am not about to be a male spinster. Just want someone to have conversations with and to start to live again. Anonymous…..I’m so glad you came back and responded.


It must be one of the reasons why I can’t find a good guy like you. Men just don’t trust women anymore, and I can’t say that I blame them, judging by the stories I’ve heard here. I have to admit that I am guilty of scrutinizing against short men online.

Steven Spielberg Reveals The Scene That Left Studio Executives 'Appalled'

I’m a late-50s man who was on the verge of divorce after my spouse celebrated turning 50 by having an affair. She apologized and put forth the usual regrets – and I’ve forgiven her – yet I don’t know if I’ll ever get over it. I now have plenty of new scar tissue, if you know what I mean. Two single friends of mine in my age bracket cautioned me to think long and hard about divorce because they both said that the dating and romantic life for a single, 50-something man can pretty much suck.

Some men are the ones not satisfied, even when they have a faithful, supportive, loving spouse. One called me late one evening, drunk, to tell me she missed me. I went to her house to find her passed out in the floor, door unlocked. I’m sure there’s women who could say the same about men.

We only parted because a heart attack claimed his life after suffering for many years with medical problems. So I guess unless you did what you were supposed to do when you were supposed to do it when everyone is young and attracted to each other you are shit outta luck. Biology/social worth is a cruel bitch. I think it is about getting back to the basics of respect, compassion, giving, and understanding. Everyone is different, but with a measure of commitment I think a relationship can work at any age. But it has to come from both sides and there has to be genuine caring and a selfless attitude without giving up who you truly are as a person.

Some days I can deal with it ok, and sometimes not. It is very tough if you’re an affectionate person; when you want to express yourself in a certain way and can’t. Chris….you sound like a genuine person also. It is nice to hear, and I appreciate your post. The points you mentioned for a meaningful relationship are points I value very much.

They have employees write and post phony ads. Also they entice you with notices that someone wants to contact you. They have thousands of complaints on file.

I have just passed my one year anniversary of being divorced. Not sure what the future holds or even what I want from it. My marriage was not good for the last several years so sadly after 26 years together there is not much to miss…the sad thing is I would have stayed and kept trying. However now this year has shown me that closing that door has changed my life for the better as well. I am finally taking time for me…not the husband or child, who’s now 20 and on her own.

Don't immediately introduce them to friends and family.

It’s too late for me – nothing has happened yet and almost certainly never will. I live in the PNW and dating is a faded memory for me. End of this year will be 10 years since I had a date. I want to find a women who is like minded, I find attractive and will be my best friend. There is some that are like minded, but there is a lot of very large women and I will not date them.

But unlike Tinder it has a more "serious" vibe - to the extent it earned the nickname "the female-friendly Tinder." Once you’ve set up your profile and uploaded a photo, you can begin connecting with potential matches. The options for how to do so are broad, but they often include messaging on the app or website itself, as well as an option for audio and video calls. The price of meeting a potential match depends on the dating site.
