Question for Ladies 50+Page 4 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)
It was never a deal breaker for me, the full head of hair thing.. and I agree, I dont look 20 anymore and I dont look for a 20 year old man. I like a rugged man anyway, not a pretty boy. When I made a statement about liking men with full heads of hair, I was merely speaking from experience and what my choices usually were. Not that a bald man was going to be eliminated just because he did not have hair.. as for the cellulite thing.. if it bothers you so much go date a damn 20 year old. I myself have photos on here now.. no cellulite!!

You women live in a bubble. Literate conducts an interview before she will date, and many of you still have these ridiculous demands and expectations. No wonder so many of you can't find or keep a good relationship going. So many of you are clueless about how you appear to us, aren't you. Many of you will never be in a relationship again because of it.


The same could be said for a lot of the over 45 men here on POF, Timeforall. They don't trim their toenails or nose hair, smell like a hamper, have a beer gut and Santa beard but expect a woman to be busty and fit. They don't have savings/a house/decent job, can't carry on a conversation, expect sex without commitment and want to live in front of the TV. Is it really any wonder we women have to keep a list of minimum expectations? Pfft...the goomer gate swings both ways, so don't let it smack you in the hiney when you (who has no public photo) walks through it.

Cellulite doesn't show up any better in blurry pof pictures will all your clothes on any better than fine lines and wrinkles do or for than matter what my head of hair looks like when I wear a hat.

Cellulite doesn't bother me I have accepted that it comes with the package of a woman my age - I just figure many women my age might benifit from being a little more realistic about what comes with a 50 yr old man . If they want to limit themselves to the top 10% of desireable men in thier age group or pursue men young enough to be thier son that is thier perogative.

I just figure if a woman want a man with an amazing body or head of hair for his age she should probably have the same for her age

Women over 50 are not the only ones afflicted with cellulite. Young, fit women often have it, too. There's a genetic component towards cellulite that isn't affected by how much a woman diets and exercises, or her age.

Google search celebrities with cellulite, and you will see tons of women with it---including Scarlett Johansson, Halle Berry, Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez, Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian, and many others.

OP, That is such a great question you posed. I am not only 50, but not too long ago ended an almost 30 yr. marriage. Yes, I want to be courted.

Thank god I was married for so long because I'm not jaded as some can be from being in the dating word for so long. I am excited actually to meet new people, so bring it on.

Thanks Halcyon but I am aware of that over the years going to community swimming pools/ gyms/ the beach and most recently the university/community swimming pool and gym I have seen a pretty good cross section of what women of all shapes, sizes and ages look like in bright lights wearing a bathing suit or spandex.

Cellulite does exist on younger women but from what I have observed it typically becomes much more noticable with age... same could be said for men's hair loss or any other age related physical degradation that effects men.

Well, you've answered a question that has been nagging me. Now I know why so many men send form letters instead of taking the time to read my profile and respond. Some guys think we're all alike!

"What women are looking for at my age" is exactly what we were looking for at 16. A man who treats us as if we're unique, special, and appreciates our individual charms and opinions.

I wouldn’t brag about that if I were you…it sounds damn creepy.

My mom is almost 74 and has the legs of a young dancer, with no noticeable cellulite.
And my dad at 50 had a full head of thick wavy hair. Generalizations are a b itch.

generalizations may be a b itch, but they are also generally true . . including the one that almost all women at age 50 have cellulite. No big deal. You women are not teenagers anymore. And the steroid freak up above would probably be willing to go out with some of you, cellulite and all. Give him a shot.

So Typical Pinky, you have a rude, offensive comment by a woman to a regular poster on these boards, but who do you condemn???. the guy who calls her out on it. MEAN, MEAN, MEAN . . that's my biggest gripe about so many of you. Its the way your reptilian minds work. Since it always about YOU, its perfectly okay to respond in a brusk manner to a guy who makes a comment you don't like. But if a guy says something back, its because he is a "puke".

vvvvvvv But yet it's okay for you to refer to another male poster a a steroid freak?

You sound a tad bit self-righteous to me.

Well the steroid freak was deleted by the moderators, so they saw what i saw. I don't hold back. When a guy deserves it, i will respond to him also. But being rude and offensive to guys comes so easily to women they don't even know they are doing it. Science needs to look for that mean gene so many of you have. Mean Girls sure got that right, and too many of you never grow out of it.

Right. Why don’t you ask these women who supposedly know when some other woman last wore an outfit if they’re gay? I don’t pay attention to what other women wear, and I couldn’t possibly care less (unless of course it’s really cute shoes).

However I will say noticing clothing is a bit different than claiming to notice cellulite on every conceivable age and body type of woman:


….I am aware of that over the years going to community swimming pools/ gyms/ the beach and most recently the university/community swimming pool and gym I have seen a pretty good cross section of what women of all shapes, sizes and ages look like in bright lights wearing a bathing suit or spandex…


Look I really don’t care…but I guarantee it’ll turn off 99.99999999% of women….go ahead and post it on your profile.

timeforall…..tie_me_up, is that you, honey? Obviously you have some kind of personal glitch with me….oh well, too bad. Take a deep breath. You’ll get over it.

^^^^^^Sweetheart, I've been pouting ever since you told me you wouldn't be interested in dating me. My life has been crushed, my ego shattered. But I will take your advice, will take a deep breath, and will try to go on .. . difficult as it may be. BTW, how did you know I was tie-me-up. You remembering those kinky dates we had together?

I'm thinking if your "dates" seem like job interviews, perhaps you aren't coming up with a good setting. You need a relaxing atmosphere, as opposed to a "sit and ask questions" type of setting, which can be stressful on both parties. For instance, if I could find someone to catch the bus to Cripple Creek with me on Saturday for a day of gambling and a meal, with, of course, me paying my way and him paying his way, we could have time to talk, get to know each other, and if he didn't like me, or vice-versa, we could catch different busses back home. Or just drift apart in the casinos if we didn't "click". If we did get along well, it could be a really fun day. Less stress tha just sitting around asking each other what we do, what we like, etc. There are numerous places to go and things to do if you use your noggin. Zoos, museums, hiking, or whatever suits the two of you. Hope you find your "fish" soon. Keep trying.

The fact that we are all more experienced in what we will and will not tolerate, unlike when we were young and stupid, makes dating a complex thing, even though it should be a natural and fun thing like it used to be. I give men I think I could be inerested in, at least 1 or 2 more chances, if by date 3 I'm not feeling a romantic attraction for him, then I say no to further dates, whats the point? I hate the date/KGB interrogation, what ever happened to just learning about one another naturally? I perfer a little courting and romance, it makes it feel less like a job interview, and the man who keeps up the thoughtfullness will keep the girl....something men should remember...but never do.

"These women have friends and companions - why do they need a man again?" OMG! You want a woman without friends and companions? What do you want? A woman without friends who will look to only you for her total fulfillment? Creepy!

Some would argue that they have friends that vibrate ( I think a Harley works fairly well for something you can wrap your legs aroung that vibrates and goes thunp thump thump ) and they don't need a man.
