Are you referring to me?
I get mail...just not as much I'd hope for!

My mother is 83 and her boyfriend is 89. It seems a bit creepy that he doesn't date women within the '5 year rule'. They're always flying down to Cuba for vacation and I just hope they have separate rooms. Maybe I'll have 'the talk' with him.

I went out on a date with a 61 year old. The man was full of himself. His first remark was "don't I look a lot younger than my age".......he didn't.

I don't think there is a cut-off age, more like a cut-off brain.

Just to get an idea of the older men in my current area, I did a search for men, ages 66-99, 6 ft tall and over, who live within a 100 miles of me. There were 10 pages of some pretty fine looking men. Now, I'm engaged to the love of my life but, if I weren't, this area (metro DC) would be like living in a smorgasbord of attractive, active, older men. I'm sure there must be plenty of other older, attractive men throughout the POF membership. Such a shame that the great women and the great men don't seem to be meeting up.

I guess I must have been lucky. I've met wonderful men on this site who are seriously looking for long term relationships. They weren't looking for one night stands and they weren't users. They were terrific guys, many of whom went on to find the right women for them, just as I went on to find the right man for me. In many cases, we've remained friends and enjoy seeing each other in loving, happy, successful relationships.

Act your age,flying into the mosh pit is probably out, flying to Ireland for a golf tour sounds better.


Sorry but flying to Ireland for a golf tour no thanks.. However an invite to flying into a mosh pit and you count me in..

I think after a certain age being on a dating site such as this is rather foolish. It is primarily for hook ups. For women I think that maybe 5o is a cut off point and for men about the same. I wouldnt bother with a man over 55 no matter how old I get so you are not the only one who wants younger. Most men do but whether you can get them is another thing.

Really?? 65??? No thanks. As for men having luck on POF, some at 25 have none and
some at 55 have some. No " hard" and fast rules.

Heck no. I'm 61 and love dating. I DO want a sexual relationship, but not marriage. My sex drive is as strong as it was when I was much younger.

I am now 63 and I did notice that as soon as my birthday hit, Oct 3, 2009, I stopped getting any emails, nor did I receive any responses back from my emails...Now I know why, I was cut off and no one told me..Until this thread that is...

Unfortunately the cut off age seems to be younger than that! Us boomers are a pretty hip bunch and not ready to be put out to pasture just yet!

I tend to like women a little younger than myself,must be the SoCal in me.


What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

If you reject women your age or older, then expect to be rejected yourself for the exact same reasons. If you search for women your age and a few years older, you probably won't have this problem.

You must be joking. The cut off age for POF or anything else is when you are dead!!!
If you want it bad enough you'll find it. Never ever give up!

Ladyc4 has got it pretty well nailed it. Real practical observations. Just have to remember that people can still be taken out by the "love factor" and which case all practically goes out the window. Can happen even after age 61; but I do believe the susceptibility and frequency is much less than at a younger age.

Getting back to the mans question. I thing age is just a number. From my observation of your profile, you are in great shape and still attractive, therefore, you should have no problems finding a women... I do get that you may not get as many women contacting you and most women in their 50's are looking for someone younger or a bit older but that does not mean that you are out of the running. I'm in my 50's and having the same problem you are. Most men my age are looking for much younger. Just hang in there.

Also, there are other venues to meet women.. Ever try Meetup.com? Its not a dating site perse but a venue to get involved with other people that share the same interests. Check it out. Good luck to you..

I think a 6 year range in either direction is fair for my age .

At 70 my upper age limit for women is 55 and I have yet to even consider dating a woman that old.

As I have been told: once a woman has had a good husband and happy marriage, she is less likely to date again or get involved with a man. It's only the women who have had bad men and husbands who keep trying.


On the contrary: most widows who have had happy marriages know only too well what they have lost and if anything tend to jump in ----- heartfirst --- licketysplit into another romance sooner than later. Some end up with Mr. Wrong, but this has less to do with their capacity to give/receive love again and more to do with the fact that people coming out of 2 or 3 decades' worth of happy marriages have not learned much about adultery, duplicity, the acrimony that results from some divorces (replete with ongoing hostilities/challenges such as alimony, child custody, etc.) So these widows may well have a lot to learn about the realities of "less than happy" relationships because they are simply clueless (as in naive) about the ways in which people can batter each other across a number of emotional and physical spectra.

On the other hand, widows with the good fortune to meet honest and loving singles as well as the deep desire to love one of them, will do everything possible to have one more chance at one more lasting love affair:)


At 70 my upper age limit for women is 55 and I have yet to even consider dating a woman that old.


Really? Well, Sir, I have only one acronym in response to the above:
