Confused about You're too old for me responses from womenPage 22 of 24    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24)


I've had many 55 - 58 year old ladies that have told me that I'm too old as well...I have no idea what they're looking for any more.


I have seen that in real life, but not very often. I seem to see it much more here in the online dating world. I attribute this to the "catalog shopping mentality" that is often exhibited online. And I would suppose the same thing is true with older men and younger women. In real life, it isn't going to work (or at least not very often!). But online, your fantasies run away with you.

I do know one lady, unknown age but somewhere in my vicinity, who says that she only dates younger men "because I can". And I know she can, I have seen her out and about with men in their 40's several times. I ran into her last night, and we talked for a few minutes. She told me she's presently dating a 38 year old, who was tied up with a family gathering. I walked her out to her car, and made another pitch, "You should give me a shot sometime, I just might surprise you!"

She gave me a look look, then proceeded to kiss me. A very nice kiss. Very. Before I could catch my breath, she was in her car and making her escape. Hmmmm....

Yes, I am, and I am just a teeny bit crazy about her. But she is recently divorced, dating several men, and absolutely not ready to settle down. Which I understand, when I first got divorced, the last thing I wanted was to settle down with just one person.

I would be exclusive with her in a heartbeat, if she were ready. But she is not. So I see her whenever I can, enjoy the time that I do spend with her, and date other women in the mean time. I am playing the "long game". We text every day, and exchange emails, and I see her about once a week. And I "woo" her. I tell her how special she is, and how much I look forward to seeing her, and how beautiful she is. I do not play games, I do not pretend to be "distant" or only slightly interested.

Will this work? How in the hell should I know? But I do know that I am giving it my best shot.

What do women and dog poo have in common?


The older they are, the easier they are to pick up.

Merry Christmas

Both genders can be equal opportunity denial-ists

Me, I know I am just an old bag, & I just accept it as my lot in life :0(

Try adding 20+ years to that age. A woman of 37 wouldn't be posting in the Over 45 forum.

the one about the dog excrement and women....
of course we older men are probably all a lil easier too
My last comment for the year on this subject is
men were not made [ala the Creator] to do and be the same at 50 as they were at 20
[new study links cancer in the gonads to testosterone therapy in older guys]
Older gals are also getting cancer from estrogen.
Moral of the story:
Act your age which means quit trying to pretend you are a spring chick or that young girls find you distinguished,
just find somebody you can enjoy being with, personality wise, then hold on as you grow...
nothing on this earth was meant to last forever and when one of you dies, you are back at square one and you had better like yourself, cuz that may be all you have

Hopefully, you all will have a better new year. Me too

I have had a 24 year old tell me I am too short for her.

Amusing to say the least.

Over the course of these many decades of chasing women, I have been told that I am too old, too fat, too ugly, not rich enough, too horny, too desperate, and probably dozens more that I don't even remember right now.

You would think by now that I would have callouses on my callouses, but it doesn't work like that. Sometimes, yes, the insults just slide off my back. Other times, they do hurt. Sometimes I am surprised by how much it stings, even when I can see no logical reason for it to do so. Other times, when I was anxious about the results of trying, the negative response comes almost as a relief.

"Well, at least that's over, now I can quit worrying about it and get on with something else."



I thought “chuffy” was a wide girth d1ck!

Are you talking about me again? I thought no one here in the forums knew about that!

Wait, maybe they weren’t. Maybe I’m just being paranoid again.

Always remember, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean that they aren’t out to get you! The voices keep reminding me of that.

Thing was, I was amused she was concerned about by height rather than I was 40+ years older than her. Not hurt in the least.

Mostly I wasn't hurt because I was already committed to my future wife, I contacted the young woman on POF because she lived 1 mile from my house and liked to ride a bike. My wife was still in Thailand and the other people I ride with are either my age or my mother, I thought it would be nice to ride with someone much younger as it would be more of a challenge. A refreshing change of pace.

I really had no thought of dating her, but I can't fault her for leaping to that conclusion, it's a dating site after all. I never did explain I was only interested in a riding partner as I got side tracked. (those were the days where there wasn't an age restriction on who you could contact.)

ohenryx,

Is that the chicky-pooh who was just a "little extra," that wasn't quite good enough, until you realized she has a brain and used it to figure you were just too fat to love after the holidays?

The truth is, you are a man-child in a 5x. Look in the mirror. You have dozens of pounds to lose, starting with your obese ego. When you shed all of that and change your attitude, Lord willing, you will meet quality people.
