good luck with dating the women who are in their early forties at your age. You must have money or are very fit is all I can say. I cant imagine dating a man your age and I am in my late fifties lol!!

People in their 70s are still social, still romantic and they can still spell correctly. Imagine that!

This thread was started five years ago. The thread title might have to be updated at some point to Dating in your 80's.

Yes, they do. I've dated several women in their 70's.

I don't care how old a woman is, as long as I find her attractive. I have said before, here in these forums, the percentage of women who are still attractive definitely declines with age.

There are definitely women in their 70's who are still attractive, just as there are women in their 40's whom I wouldn't date, even if you offered to pay me.

Well, that explains it then. People in their 70s still date but not nearly as much as they would when younger because the percentage of women who are still attractive definitely declines with age, just as the percentage of men who are still attractive definitely declines with age. Maybe it's just that they don't "date" in public, according to the statistics to be found with respect to STDs being contracted by elderly individuals: http://www.benrose.org/Resources/article-stds-older-adults.cfm

Sweet kisses,


And in her profile, she says "looking for a sweet man". I've seen men also say, "I'm looking for a sweet woman".

Exactly what is SWEET?

This term has always bothered me. What precisely does it mean in this context?

The dictionary says one meaning is "pleasing in general; delightful."

I just don't go around telling my lady friends about another lady friend... "oh, she's a sweet woman".

Is this a Southern term, or a New York term, or it just nonsense?

I have lots and lots of lady friends. They just don't fill my need for a nice warm hand to hold. Or a cozy arm around my shoulders. Sweet kisses, etc. Yes, we older ladies can volunteer, be Pink Ladies, etc. but we long for a companionship with a man to do fun things with. One with similar interest. A traveling partner. I don't see anything scary about that. So, where are the willing men?


Good question. I've been divorced for five years. Two dates isn't what I'd call grand luck. Rather than be continually disappointed, I decided that I'd better find a way to entertain myself. For the past three years, I've pretty much ignored the (un) fairer sex.

I don't see visual cues, flirting, voice inflections, or any of this nonsense that women put out there to show interest. The few that I did date, understood this about me. Those are very few and far apart. Perhaps more may have been interested. But, because they were more interested in playing their cute little games, instead of just coming out and saying something, I took it as a rejection and went about my business.

So where are the willing men? We gave up on you long ago.

In case some didn't notice the comment was more of a sarcastic comment.

"MaryAnn, but not Ginger."

Have you got something against a woman who would wear a 5,000 dollar designer dress on a 2 hour boat cruise?

I belong to a small nondenominational church. Every week during brunch we have some interesting and honest discussions. Many of the younger members discuss their parents who are in their late 60's/ early 70's and onto a third or fourth marriage. Apparently they bury the last spouse and move on very quickly to another. I asked one of the younger women if she is OK with her Mom marrying again so soon after the last husband died. She said, "yes, because her Mom does not like to live alone and needs a spouse."

Maybe I am of a more independent generation being 59. I am ok with living alone after being widowed. Meeting a guy who is "sweet" just does not do it for me.

The men I know around here in their seventies mostly date women in their fifties. A few lucky devils are still able to date women in their forties.

I always wondered as well what "a sweet woman" actually meant until I met someone that actually tasted sweet to me. Concluded that the combinations of body chemistry could work so that the couple actually experience sweetness when they have contact with each other, and frankly, it is something to be desired and sought after.

"Kisses sweeter than wine..."

Its actually a description of an experience that can be had, and not particularly related to personality. Its like how some women just fit physically, others just don't. Truely a strange phenomenon. Until you experience it, you just don't understand it.

If you're kissing someone in their 70',that sweet taste could be the taste of lingering Polident or Poligrip.

There are lot's of great guy's out there in their 70s.
I talk to several every day who are still full of fun and laughter and life.
Our ages are just a number because I like older guy's.
Now, if I can just find a ugly wealthy one. Lol. If you ask me, you should tell Mom to go for it.
Plenty Of Fish is a good place to start. Not a lot of quality people for long term, but I bet she will make some nice friends.

Why not????

Several days ago, my housemate/GF, who will be 75 this year, out of the blue made a statement.

"I regret not getting back out there after ( her husbands name) died. I wish I had found a man to do things with me. I miss the companionship. I miss having someone to spend time with. Now it's too late."

Me, "Are you s***ting me? You are NOT dead. You have choices, you can choose to get out there."
Her, "Well I know, men at the Casino, or men on my cruises, have asked me to have dinner with them."

"AND?"

"Well now, (my name), you have to be safe, you know".
"Yah, its called common sense. Stay where there are other people. Stay in a public place!"

"I just think I'm almost dead",
"Yah, you want the pity attention that gets you, but just think of the kind of attention you could get IF you went to the places where older men are, such as the Senior Center in town? If (different Gf' name) Mom who is 87 or 88 can meet a man in her late 70's, AND they are still dating for 10 years now, so can you. Stop with the self pity, and GO"

LOL, She wants me to feel guilty because I no longer spend my weekends with her.

sweet men can be construed as soft and unmasculine and not a term I would want to use for a partner myself.
It may well just mean easy going and not nasty but is usually applied to females and children.

Honestly I cant imagine kissing a guy in his seventies in any passionate way and those guys that say they can find women twenty years younger at that age, must have money or the women are not interested in anything but companionship, which is fine.
