Men over 55 ??Page 5 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

how come nothing came from these meetings.


I wonder about that from a number of postings. It seems like many meet people they are attracted to at one time in the last 5 years, but never seem to have anything close to a LTR and are still looking.

Makes me think they just like dating different people and do not really prefer a LTR.

There there are those saying they used to play the field and are now looking to settle into a LTR. Good luck with that, many newly single people are also looking to play the field.

Because attraction is not the only requirement. There have been many attractive men I've met (some here, some IRL) that would not have made good LTR's with me for some reason (or many).

janet, I suppose it is semantics then.

I think of the total profile as someone as attractive, not just how they look. Emailing to them, chatting with them gives more info. I would only ask someone out if their personality and looks were both attractive to me.

Often I have dated someone that was interesting, but more in the past than now. Like a woman that worked in a rodeo would be interesting to date. I dated a construction worker, she was interesting. Interesting isn't often a LTR, maybe it's the same as you saying attractive. Just being novel is somewhat more attractive to me.

I think it more like seeing what you think are the perfect shoes and then you try them on and commit and purchase them only to find out if you walk in them around the block--they pinch so badly you cant walk the next day

--until you get into someone's life you have no idea if things will work or not--no matter how badly you might want to be in a LTR unless you settle it just won't happen on the first pair of shoes you try to walk around the block in--some might get lucky and get it right the right time

^^ It looks to me like some want to try on every shoe in the store, and then change to a new shoe store.

Which sure is weird for me to say, since I have always liked new shoes even when the old ones were perfectly fine.

Many people start counting backwards when they reach 50, so only the rare few Abe Lincoln descendants will ever admit to or post their age as 60 or over here on POF.


I would like to add a few years to my age, but I can't figure out how to do it. (A little help, please!) Maybe I can instantly become a distinguished gentleman,,,and I am using the term loosely. LOL

I do! I actually prefer "older" men.
I do agree that I often don't hear back when I send a message. I have had some dates in the year plus I have been on here but not many.

Yes there are men i am sure over 55 on this site. I am 64, integrity, loyal, faithful, but women want to ride motorcycles, and expect you to be tall and handsome, dispite the qualities needed for a healthy and solid relationship. I believe your looking for tall, my loss again, I am 5' 6".

I'm here babe. Over 55 and I feel great.
Maybe it's the mid-life thing going on, but I don't think so.

I agree who wants the over 55? If you go for 45 then you will get men who are really 50 and are possibly fit enough to engage in real sex and without medical aids.

As another poster pointed out.... many men, yes men, lie about their age and post pics of themselves from 15 years ago.

This is true of women's profiles too. DO they not think we'll notice when we meet? Same for age

I have not found that to be true. But I have found that some ladies cant distinguish between motorcycle enthusiasts and hells angels

Isn't that funny and I always thought it was us woman who are vain and yet we are more likel to show recent pics and tell the truth about age why hide it? You will get caught out and what have you gained a rep for being dishonest.

Yes it is very sad we have so much love to give but they would rather have some one younger who will just take yes indeed go figure and by the way I think you are a very nice lady his loss big time. Take care

This is an amusing topic. Reminds me of a few years ago. I was dating a woman who was 51 @ the time. While browsing POF, I came across her mothers' profile. She was in her late 70's and stated her age as 62...lol. The thing that was funny was, that she actually looked 80, but swore she didn't. I never told her daughter about it, but laughed to myself everytime we got together......

I recently raised my age limit to 57 from 55 because many women my age look older and are out of shape. Found some that look good after raised age.

OP, I just did a search for Caucasian men over 55 within 50 miles of your city and got 600 results. I think you should go back and try it again.
