I usually ask them if they're a founder member of the Filipino Freindship Club.

They're usually too overweight to run after me and what's more their toupee might fly off!

I know 3 decidedly average/ugly 50something guys that had imported brides, once the girls got residency they left the old farts for younger models...plus they got HALF!

All the women I've dated (albeit a very small sample) regardless of hair colour have loved my grey, so from personal experience I think it's how you carry it.

If your a boring fart that never smiles, then IMO regardles of age it would be a turn off, they grey would just magnify things

How to progress after a disastrous date....
Posted: 3/14/2013 5:55:58 AM
2014 IMO is when he should actually look to date.

The type of occurence you've cited as his experience is personally very difficult to get over.

The 'Take care!' response at the end of an email/text does (as Daver has stated) elude to "Thanks but no thanks" but is often used as a ploy to gauge the other persons feelings and can often back-fire if used for the latter purpose. You then can't retract it and have effectively 'made your bed'.

Apart from your physical state I am faling to see how the date was a failure as it allows you to cross him off your list and move on. The problem is if you find yourself pining...which seems to be quite common.

Good luck &...wait for it...take care!

When you wish the ground would swallow you up
Posted: 3/14/2013 12:30:16 AM
Not to me, but a rather superior marketing colleague at the end of the 80's. Back when word processors were rather basic affairs...almost electronic typewriters with 8" disc drives and newer ones having 5.25". So when launching a new product/service we had to produce MRD/PRD/CRD documents, by far the largest of these was the Customer Requirements Definition as it invariable contained lots of research material.

Anywho...it wasn't uncommon to plagarise previously used business cases and he did it for a campaign, printed off 13 copies & ordered arranged overnight couriers for 11 sending our MD a copy by bike and one circulated around the office. Appreciate that the company I worked for had over 300,000 employees at the time, so the MD was a pretty busy guy. After work I picked up the office copy and had a thumb through the 100 page document and discovered that a spelling error had been made thoughout the document, not sure how many times...but dozens at least.

The correct spelling of the phrase was ANNUAL PENETRATION. Care to guess at what his fox paws was?? I immediately wrang through to the MD's PA (who I knew as we caught the same train in the mornings) and left her a rather animated message advising of the error. The next morning when Mr Superior came in I asked in front of the whole office (who by now had been briefed)..it went like this:

Me: Paul that was a rather impressive business case you did yesterday?
Him: I know (smugly)
Me: I've never seen such colourful language used in a CRD though?
Him: Colourful how?
Me: What anal sex has to do with pagers is beyond me, my view is your sex/business life need to be seperate
Him: OMFG! (the full version as the abbreviation didn't exist back then)

He then ran off to call all the recipients of the report asking them to destroy it...most of his calls were met with roars of laughter?

Strangely he was never superior again, as if he overstepped the mark we'd tell him not to be 'so annual'

[Never known anyone get told to their face they look older. People arent rude enough, not even friends]

Strangely I have told this to people, usually along the lines of:

1) Wow I didn't think that people in their 20's got crows-feet?
2) Well you must have had a hard life?

Am still waiting for the wake-up-call that a smack in the face (at the very least) will bring!

Off to practice this 'charm thing' I've heard so much about.

When is the Job Market gonna improve in the UK?
Posted: 3/10/2013 2:39:37 PM
I blame my parents for not knowing the right people (sad face icon thingie)

Am not a grad but up until last year had 9 working for me, it is tough out there, in the last intake year we were only looking at 2:1's and above. That said the starting salary was not shabby at £20k and several of my intakes from 15yrs ago are now GM's or above and doing damned well career wise/financially.

So the lesson I think is to choose your subject carefully (I know someone my age that did Astronomy and studied under Patrick Moore at Oxford but has had sporadic employment) and ensure you get a good result.

Also not helped by the fewer apprenticeships not being pushed by 6th forms etc

If you can get temp work do it, if you can get voluteering work do it just to keep your hand in and learn some new skills.

Broken People

Isn't it all a matter of degrees and progress in this techno age?

25+years ago I did a little voluntary work for Samaritans in taking phone calls.

All the call takers had fake (read as non-sexy) names such as Ethel, Gertrude, Agnes, I was Peter. As it was a Freefone number the girls used to get heavy breathers and perverts galore, the newbies were shocked but the old hands were used to it.

With a deep and (I've been told) cultured voice I started receiving regular obscene calls from women and had to terminate the calls but crucially thought it a complete hoot and didn't for one minute think less of the callers!

As we had to log each call I was advised that I had the highest number of pervert calls of any man that had taken calls in the history of the organisation...even that made me smile/laugh!

Was I wrong? Naaah not really

He says I have potential to be beautiful.
Posted: 3/9/2013 11:53:40 PM
Now I said to my girlfriend in passing that 'we are so lucky as two average people to have found each other' her response was 'no I'm not average I'm gorgeous!' Actually this response was kinda expected

By some people's definition that could be construde as either controlling, self deprecating or having image issues, when honestly I don't believe I have any of these.

IMO there is a fundemental difference between self-image and self-worth and I have the latter in abundance as find with people with the latter can get hurt too easily. There will always be someone that's better looking, with a faster car, larger bank balance and home...so why even bother to compete?

Fear of getting naked?
Posted: 3/9/2013 2:50:29 PM
Reading the OP's original post I have to conclude with other posters that she shouldn't date until she's improved her self image. I mean why even go on dates and (potentially) have someone fall head over heels for you only to find themselves dumped because of poor body image? So from that standpoint a little selfish.

That said in my experience if you ask 100 women if they are happy with their bodies 98% will start the reply with "don't like my eyes/breasts/thighs/nose.. ad infinitum. Ask 100 guys and 98 will say "better than average"

Now I'll confess to being lucky and am the same weight and dimensions I was at 19, and I think courtesy of being of a darker persuasion I have no lines, a 30" waist and a decent butt (not that I've been looking but where do mens butts disappear to when they hit 50?)

If I work really hard I can have I can have a) better defined shoulder and arms (horseshoe etc) in 2 weeks & better defined abs in a month. As I get older it takes longer but it's something I do for myself and a matter of pride...so when I shuffle off this mortal coil and they wheel me into the furnace they'll never be able to call me 'self basting'

You can improve anything bodily about yourself through exercise and as my wheelchair bound mother at 73 and 120lbs can demonstrate, a disability doesn't mean you have to let yourself go.

As to involuntary scarring am thinking that affects less than half a percent of any populace?

Men who have no childern after 50
Posted: 3/9/2013 2:03:19 PM
May I spin this slightly? OK, I will be 50 in a short 22 months and at that time my children (who I have custody of) will be 11 & 12.

I found that this was far more of a red flag to those women of my age group, many of whom were empty nestors on their grandchildren, since they had the T-shirt and everything!

I could understand this but found it was at odds when a similarly aged woman was in my position (e.g. had children in late 30's) as they had no shortage of potential suitors. It leads me to two conclusions:

1) That men are more forgiving/desperate/horny
2) That women are in no way desperate and can pick and choose

Luckily I have met someone who to me is my ideal, she has slightly older children but appreciates my circumstance and that the children come first. So I can see that a childless man may not have the degree of empathy required, after all as those parents amongst us know, they will always be our babies...sigh

Needless-to-say we've both agreed that she'll not be meeting my children until the Summer months when we will have been dating for half a year. The logic being that it would be unfair for my kids to see a string of partners going through their lives, since strongly believe that they learn, at a remarkably young age about the value of relationships from those around them.

Does it matter if he lies about his age
Posted: 3/9/2013 1:32:40 PM
Apologies in advance if I'm roadtripping, but couldn't help but comment.

Having seen the number of posts about 'lying about your age' it seems to be rife on here across continents, in equal measures from both sexes with the usual 'I put in the wrong date' or the fave ' my sister/friend set up my profile' doh!

If you do it it's you that has to live with the possibility of being found out and it does (to me at least) indicate a inadequacy or dissatisfaction with yourself.

Everyone likes to be flattered on how well we look ('for our age' when your over 45 ) but it really matters when it it's from someone we care for IM (not so H) O. Sooo I think if you enter into a relationship, which we all agree requires trust, then why would you lie? I actually think that the OP's potential beau realised that he actually really liked her and didn't want it to develop without fessing up.

Am fortunate that I've met my idea of perfection and there's a mere 13 months between us, so we can celebrate our half century's together! Now imagine making those plans and/or looking forward to them & your new partner says "Well actually I celebrated it last year?" Erm, I know how I would feel.

Let's all grow old disgracefully!

Grievances
Posted: 3/8/2013 11:26:51 PM
One of my managers bought a grievance case against me a couple of years back whilst on sick-leave for stress for a period of 6 months (less a day). In fact he bought the grievance case on the last day of his sick leave

All of the claims made were unsubstantiated by them but I had evidence that the claims were in fact misguided (emails from them being sarcastic, inflammatory and downright rude). So the key here is to have evidence to support your claim.

Since his claims were against me (and unfounded) when he returned he refused to work for me, he was told he HAD to as there were no other opportunities, and as a result he took voluntary redundancy and left.

Many larger employers will have an Occupational Health Team (OHS) and will offer a return to work program (similar to those returning from maternity leave) so I'd make some enquiries.

As Notts has said membership of a union is important as they will have people that specialise in this sort of thing, however they really cannot help you if you have no evidence or are acting unreasonably.
