If you don't think your woman is drop dead gorgeous, you are not with the woman of your dreams.

I always find my woman friends gorgeous. Always the woman of my dreams.

Sadly, I have dreamt a lot over the years.....

Nobody that I ever met from a dating site looked like their photos. Some were much better looking, some considerably worse looking. In the end, it really depends on the personality of the person and their attitude. Everybody posts the photo they think shows them in their best light.

Blonde Angele was a fixture for so long on these forums, I was amazed that she(?) disappeared and did not come back. Originally claimed to be from small town NY, then, suddenly, out in the mid-west with a changed personality. Perhaps she(?) really did disappear, and someone took over her(?) profile?

Don't tell me that people here have multiple profiles! Who would have thought!

I suppose it could all be a case of transgender. Woman in the East, transition in the mid-west, man in CA....Nothing really surprising there.

Only thing intimidating is you handle....

Anyone who finds someone capable and comfortable with taking care of themselves intimidating is crazy. None of us is guaranteed, even in childhood, that we will be taken care of in life. What puts me off is adults who clearly can not manage to take care of themselves. I have already raised my children, thanks!

Interests of women over 50y/o
Posted: 6/15/2015 8:29:26 AM
I find that women make great friends. Making them feel good about themselves makes them feel good about you, and more often than not, you get laid regular.

Who in their tight mind cares about a few bucks for coffee or lunch or dinner? In case you have not noticed, making a bank feel good about you never gets you laid, and women are much more loyal friends than banks when you run out of money.....

You had it backwards.


Indeed, if the samples are not "normal", the statements about the "average" may not be true, but the same statements about the "median" would be true. Not quite backwards, but somewhat sloppy. :)

There is a big difference between the median and the average. The original statement was about the average, and is absolutely true. Medians are a whole different ball game, and one needs to be very careful about the use, particularly with IQ values.

Half the women are of below average intelligence? How did you arrive at this conclusion?


That is a mathematically true fact. If it were not true, then the average intelligence would be wrong.

Half the men are of below average intelligence as well. Another mathematical fact!

Half of all Americans make less than the average salary. Half of all Canadians are shorter than the average height of Canadians. Half of all relationships lst shorter than the average length of a relationship........

Half of all forum posters are dumber than the average forum poster!

Sounds like a trivially easy problem to solve:

2) Decide if you would want to meet
3) If no, meet the guy
4) If yes, ignore and block the guy
5) Don't tell anyone about the cats

Well, there have been quite a few that I have met over the decades that found me to be quite likeable. Since I managed a fair number of children, I can only presume that they were not primarily lesbians.

Even the lesbians I do know appear to like me. Must be some sort of odd set of experiences I have had in life, at least going by the contents of this forum......

Oh, yes, and I have generally found they are not particularly susceptible to entering into relationships with morons, weirdos, perverts, leeches, drunks or addicts. They don't appear to be particularly worried about whether the object of their affections happens to be either rich or poor.

Near as I can figure, most of the posters on this forum don't actually date, so all these discussions about horrific outcomes are purely theoretical.

In my own case, I only date in real life. You can see, smell, taste, feel and then decide if you ever want a repeat.

I have also found educated, successful and independent women to be quite able to get into the mode of love, affection, sexual enjoyment and generally positive relationship attributes. I also find that they are more than commonly interesting to talk with...

Incredible! Why, exactly, did you think that women spend so much time and effort making themselves attractive to the opposite sex? Why did you think men choose a particular woman to mate with? Why do you think that there are Playboy models and strippers and porn and TV personalities and movie start and Cosmo?

Pretty soon any sexual encounter will be conducted following signed, witnessed and notarized contracts drawn up by lawyers, and subsequently video recorded and witnessed by 2 independent observers who will attest to the agreement of the parties to engage in the pleasures of the flesh....

It all sounds so romantic. Glad I will not be around to live the experience, or if I am, unable to participate......

In the bad old days, when there was legally no rape within a marriage, adultery was a serious criminal offense, and marriage was by mutual agreement and a bond for life, divorce did not exist, it all fit together logically. If there had been rape in marriage (legally), the woman would have had absolute power over the man as she could deny him sex and he could not legally go elsewhere. Things are so much better today when the man or woman can go anywhere at any time, the woman can deny sex with full legal support, and divorce is cheap and readily available,and marriage is completely optional.

Actually, it all fits logically together today as well!

These days its easy to end up with 4 parents. Mom and Dad divorce, remarry, and presto....twice the parents you used to have. You can then marry someone in the same situation and end up with 8 parents. Its definitely not all bad all the time, although it can be somewhat confusing at times.

Well, there is the problem of the few who post to get attention and stir the pot with aggressive and pejorative commentary about the opposite sex. At some level I think that its all a form of entertainment for the forumites. So, as long as people enjoy clobbering each other, I don't see much hope for the elimination of negative rhetoric here.

Are us 21st century men different to the past generations of men? I think we are as we have learned to adapt to the changes and allow ourselves to be in touch with our feelings far more, than are fathers and grandfathers could ever do, but do we lose a sense of masculinity by doing so?


The concepts of masculinity and femininity are based on societal myths. People as we know it today probably have not changed much in the last 200,000 years or so. Ultimately, males are born, are driven to seek a female partner who will agree to have his children and help him raise them to independence. The environment has changed, but the process is the same, the methods are the same and thankfully the results are the same.

And I wonder if - at least from the woman's side - LOSING that feeling is where many marriages go south? Instead of being their dragon-slayer, the man of the house becomes viewed as "letting them down" or causing their problems?


Some analyses of marital disintegration concluded that the result is the consequence of a long period of development of negative interaction habits that neither party can find a way to break. Once the negative patterns become established habits, things go from bad to worse. The only known successful therapies involve changing the way the parties think about each other. Instead of going into an interaction with the idea that you already know what the other person will say or do, stop, listen carefully to what is being said, try to understand why, and respond in a manner that is calming and soothing and supportive of the other persons actual emotions.

Assumptions kill relationships. Seeking common ground builds them.

We are all vulnerable regardless of what we say or do not say. Being hostile does not remove vulnerability. Like anything else, it merely exposes a side of our nature, and it is a side of our nature that is not designed to share with others.

Sharing intensely personal moments is the way we bond with our loved ones and with others we wish to bring into our own circle of comfort and safety. I appreciate your comments, KJ, because it allows me to know you as you want to be, that you are someone of deep feelings, and that you are a good human being. Nothing at all should dissuade you from that course.

In the end, vulnerability is about how you take the comments and actions of others. The only conclusion you need to draw from the comments of individuals who seek to hurt you is that they don't want to love you. They have nothing to contribute to your life, so just let them drift away.

Myself, I too feel much more safe and secure when in a relationship. I have to confess that I just love women in general and the one I happen to be with in particular. Never could really understand all of the vitriolic fervor one finds in these forums.

I think it must be some sort of evolutionary award supporting the mating system that makes us feel so wonderful when we are in the arms of our lovers and loves. It is, of course, an illusion, but what a great sense of contentment is offers.

Rather than try and deny the facts or poke holes in the data, I thought it more useful to discuss why women are less happy and men are now more happy than it the past.


Divorce? Many more people are divorced these days, and perhaps the men are relieved and the women and despondent? Kind of make you wonder about the statistic that says most divorce is initiated by women......

It is true now, and has always been true, that most mating couples worked together as a team to ensure the survival and well being of themselves and their children. The vast majority of the blather seen here by both sides of the male/female conflict is based on personal experience and myth. Men, in general, love women, and women, in general, love men. The other cases are just about interpersonal incompetence tied to physical or mental issues that arise because of environmental factors.

In the past, only the affluent, a relatively small percentage of human populations, could claim the luxury of the freedom to be dependent on another for a livelihood. To claim that a housewife of any age did not work, or was not an equal and vital partner of a mating relationship, displays only an incredible level of ignorance and a grossly insulting opinion of women.

Trouble with statistics, is that they depend on where they apply, who quotes them, and for what purpose they are presented. Here, your 33% is nowhere near the current situation, and here most couples have no intention of marrying. Perhaps in UTAH things are different.

I really suggest, oldmanhome, salenges, freethunker, or whoever you will be next week, that you do not try to psychoanalyze people you know nothing about. It just makes me think you are a moron.

Because they believe in marriage as one way to express love and commitment.

Well, before the divorce rate hit 60%, perhaps it was a commitment. These days its not anything more than a statement that today one feels like merging, however I think the word "commitment" hardly fits the situation.

Well, if people want to get married, that is another discussion. It can certainly be a romantic experience, especially when you are young.

In some places, there may be significant benefits to marriage that don't devolve to other arrangements, and if that is the case where you live, and for you and your partner, then I see nothing wrong with the activity. Where I live, its just not the case.

In the "bad" old days, marriage was something that bound people together until death. These days, you can get out of it over the weekend, it has no more of a link to children and reproduction, and for the over 50 crowd, its pretty hard to think of it with the romantic abandon of a 20 something couple.

Marriage? After having passed the child rearing stages of life? Why?

These days, why anyone ever gets married is beyond me. Huge amounts of complications with just about zero benefits, at least up here in the Cold White North. Just living together confers just about everything you can get with marriage without all the legal hassles.

I don't believe you love someone more just because the state or the church issued you a paper.

I don't believe you love someone less just because you don't have a paper in the bottom of a desk drawer somewhere.

In society, most people just assume you are married to the person you constantly show up with, and unless you stand up and announce you are not, it usually never becomes and issue.

Personally, I like educated, financially secure, intelligent and successful women. Don't find them intimidating at all.

Why, exactly, would I seek out any other kind of woman?

What a silly question. Man + Woman is a partnership. I just don't think it works if one partner is significantly unbalanced compared to the other.

Personally, I never want to have to worry about my partner after I am gone.

What is hard to find these days is women who are educated, financially secure intelligent and successful. Most of them have mates that appreciate their value and have no intention of giving them up for the joys of the single life.

The thread is about what men 50+ want, and I haven't seen too many men mention they want someone who doesn't mind being around his kids, but IRL, I find this is often a requirement.


That is exactly true. Any man who has children will not be able to form a relationship that lasts with a woman who does not want to be involved at some reasonable level with his children. You would not expect a woman to shun her children for a man, so why would it not be the same with a man?

Of course, there is a large range of involvement between raising his kids and just contributing to a family life when his kids are around, and the level of involvement varies a lot depending on the situation. Is the ex around? Is she sharing the responsibilities and trying to provide a good experience for the kids? Many other questions come into play.

However, if she wants nothing to do with them or can't get along with them or resents their presence, best just move along and do the guy a big favor by getting out of his life.

In any case, its not a long term situation. Kids grow up quickly and move off.

Its also quite true that there are many men and women who are quite happy to be with partners who have children, and quite happy to participate in making a home for them. Its often a struggle, but with success, everybody lives happily ever after.

To say that women had, or have, less recourse than men if a marriage proved unsatisfactory to the woman is a statement that has to be studied withing the context of what is meant by a marriage. In the legal definition associated with property rights, succession and legal authority to act, there is no particular relevance to the emotional state of the parties. Its all about a deal concerned with the management of family assets, and as such, some set of rules had to be devised to handle the vagaries of life. You really have to look at the socio-economic context that existed when the rules were developed to decide what is "fair" or "unfair". Certainly, the rules changed slower than society, so there was and is bound to be conflicting views about how the partners are treated by the legal system.

In the West, there were kings, but there were also queens, and it would be hard to argue that the female monarchs did not have, or could not have, equal or greater influence on society and laws than did the men. For all kinds of reasons, there was a development of a social consensus and morality that combined to produce the laws of the time, and I don't think that at any point the body of society opposed those laws. Just because ideas have changed does not, to me, justify the cries of oppression that we often hear.

My own experience has been that the project of raising a family benefits enormously from a stable male/female relationship, and that even with all the modern conveniences of home automation, day care and education systems that take care of the children for most of the day for most of their young lives. I suspect that in the old days, not being a ccouple must have been a disaster for anyone with children to raise or a farm to run. Of course, the legal aspects of the marriage deal were designed so that capricious emotional developments would not destabilize the family economics.

If marriage had been formalized with no regard for property rights, solely based on emotions, I can't see how anything beyond relatively short term arrangements could have been codified, and short term is not something that dels successfully with children, unless you live in a tribal society that regards children as the responsibility of the tribe, not just the responsibility of the parents.

Well, formal marriage is, in the West, a relatively recent phenomenon, and the legal aspects were and are still related largely to property rights. Laws define well being in terms of financial responsibility as if money, or lack of it, defines ones state of happiness.

Romantic freedom is a purely Western concept practiced mostly in the economically rich societies of the West. The idea that you form a family with someone you love is quite uncommon for the vast majority of people on the planet. We are all driven to mate and reproduce, and many societies arrange to extract the best long term benefit for the couple involved. Its pretty clear that decisions based on love and physical attraction are particularly poor, as evidenced by the divorce rate in the love based marriage cultures.

As to happiness, that is quite the question. Are the divorced people out there happier than the ones that make marriage successful? Somehow, I doubt that it is generally true, otherwise, who would remarry? Who would pump the billions of dollars into the dating site industry?

What does it mean to say you are happy? Its pretty clear that you know when you are unhappy, but who runs around daily noticing they are happy? Occasionally, yes, you do notice, but as a matter of routine?

Before property rights, or in the absence of anything valuable, marriage was an informal local arrangement between man and woman. Conditions of the times meant that death was the usual cause of separation. The parties entered in the arrangement out of necessity for survival. They were happier than being alone, but whether they were happy in the modern mythical sense, who knows. Certainly women wanted a male protector and men wanted children. Everything else is pure speculation.

What is being reasonable and what is settling?

'My son got your little tramp pregnant? Why heck, boys will be boys.'


Well, I never could understand why it was the boy who got the girl pregnant, like the girl had nothing to do with it, was a sort of victim. Any time I was ever with a female, she was an equal and active participant. This example does not really support your thesis. The implication is that the female is somehow weak, vulnerable and subordinate to the male. I think its a social illusion that this is the case. It always takes 2 to tango, in my experience.

What do 50+ men want?

And yet . . . . here you still are . . . still looking.


Strange, I don't recognize your handle from way back. Could it be that you have been here using many different handles? Tsk, tsk.

And, who says I am looking? What do you know about me?

Men and women who are alone are so because they want to be more than they want to be in a relationship. If it was the opposite, they would just be in a relationship. Many of the forum participants are in relationships, and spend time here for entertainment.

As to my "pontificating", I just share my personal opinion based on my own experience. I usually don't get a lot of support for my views, largely, I think, because I believe that people are responsible for their own life situations, in most cases, and its just no fun to come out and say : "Hey, I'm here because I worked hard to get here!". Much easier to just rail against others for one's own predicament.

The vast majority of men and women have no problem forming and maintaining relationships. Its only the few who have issues. and I believe that they are self imposed issues in most cases.
