Kinda like some Men who are chunky but think they are buff :)


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.

Is there some evil magic about the number "60" that scares some women away - even when they are only 2, 5 or 8 years younger?

op, not only do you not know if these women were being honest with you, you don't even know if their reasons have anything to do with you. they might not actually want to meet anyone, their dance cards might have just gotten full - there are a million possible reasons and you'll never know, so analysis is pointless. keep trudging and don't look back."

Makes perfect sense. Best not to dwell; dating is a contact sport.

I dunno...some people are 60 and others are
SIXTY. Some 60 year olds are too old for me.
I try not to look at numbers, but honestly, that
I'm on the radar of 75 to 80 year olds sort of
freaks me out...
so I get it.

People want what they want...or what they can't have.

About a year ago on another dating site I ran into the profile of a woman I had dated years ago. We have been dating again for the past year and it is getting serious. Turns out her mother is three years younger than my ex-wife.

When I was 63, I was dating a woman who was 73. And we had a great time. So ... whatever works.

My last date was with a woman 2 years older than me. The one before that was 20 years younger.

Tonight I was at a meetup event, wound up dancing with a woman that I have known for at least a year. She is beautiful, and a really good dancer. Always doing the fanciest moves on the dance floor, dancing with the guys who are really great dancers. To tell the truth, she kind of intimidated me, what with her looks and the dancing.

But tonight, I worked up my nerve, and asked her to dance. And it worked out okay, being a really good dancer she could follow anything I was doing, and she didn't try to do anything other than follow my lead.

A nice night, a good night. Small steps.

The last woman I was ... infatuated with, or crazy about, or whatever words might apply... I have kind of given up on her. She is dating a rich guy, takes her on expensive weekend getaways. I have done such things, but not on a regular basis, and not to the extent this guy is doing. So I'm going to let this one go. Look for someone new. I don't blame her, she is recently divorced, and exploring her possibilities. And I knew all of that going in, so ...

I continue dating, and going to Meetups. I just really want someone who takes my breath away, someone who excites me. And I found that, but it didn't work, so start over.... The woman I was dancing with tonight could definitely take my breath away. We shall see. Tonight was a a good night. Small steps.

Oh, I asked. The response was ... indeterminate, slanting towards no. She said she was aiming to not date within Meetup, she had tried that and it didn't work out. I tried some damage control, telling her that the way to date within Meetup was to NOT take dates to Meetup events, indeed, don't let anyone else in the Meetup group even know that you're dating. This way, no one is embarrassed or uncomfortable when or if it doesn't work out.

She responded that people always find out. And I pointed out that with the last guy she was dating, they went to a spot where many members of the meetup group tend to hang out. Indeed, I saw here there myself with her ex-boyfriend. She asked where I went on dates, and I told her I did not take dates to a club to go dancing. I prefer venues where you can actually talk, and get to know someone.

The conversation was difficult, as we were in a loud environment, live music, big crowd, etc. Things are ... indeterminate, as I said, but there is hope, I will see her again, and press my case. But not too hard. Fine line to walk there.

Hope is a beautiful thing, Mr. Ohenry! Wishing you much luck, a magical star alignment and a hypotizing full moon when you meet her again. :)
