Why not an Over 60 forum ?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
I always thought it was because those in an over 60 forum keep losing interest in dating at all then a few years after that they die off leaving an empty forum filled with ghosts.

Who wants to talk to ghosts, they don't usually answer.

what is a good way to approach her? If I met her in a casino, or in a bar it would be much easier.
But I resisted approaching her for fear of embarrassing either or both of us.


If at all possible, I recommend you relax and practice talking to women without a hidden goal / agenda.


This thread was not meant to be about me

Um, yes it was.

but how to meet gals my age that relate to me

That's still about you (but that's okay).

I usually say "I am not trying to be too forward, but are you seeing someone?" At least I have not gotten slapped in the face. I usually get a I am seeing someone, I don't want a relationship right now, or no I am not seeing anyone right now,

GTFOOH, FO, or I am just looking, I wouldn't mind going out with someone, but I am just interested in dating only. I am just looking for friends... I see a lot of these last ones here on POF

Oh I am over 60 and I am scared to death, about doing the wrong thing...
It's 2017 not 1970... When you have not been on a date in over 40+ years I think I have less confidence than I had as a teenager. But rejection always hurts....

That's a pretty good idea. I don't like to be too conscious of my age (I'm 64), but I get the impression a lot of the women aren't interested in what they see as a clapped-out old git LOL. I'm not of course, and age is only a number, but I'm afraid that number can be used against one. At the moment I'm lucky to get one reply for every 20 messages I send out - I know the women get many more 'hits' than we men, unless of course you're Brad bloody Pitt! Perhaps if we had a version of PoF for over 60s I might get a few more hits myself! Thanks a lot, Mick White (Leicestershire, UK)

The "over 60 crowd" would probably be funnier, nicer, and have less interest in trolling.

It not only CAN be, it WILL be, and it IS used against one.

^^^^ And..... not all woman who have a boyfriend/SO wear a ring as well. So it's best never to assume that no ring = "Available" :))


Some women who have a boyfriend and wear a ring, are also available for dating.

Now that you've said that, I wish you had mentioned the age range of the women you're writing to. I wouldn't expect a woman in her 60s to think "clapped-out old git" about a man her age, but if you're chasing the young chicks, that might well be the response.

I do too. After all many folks over 60 are retired or at least semiretired and have adequate time to browse profiles and play around with OLD.

That's a good point. Wouldn't it be great to find someone that is also retired? Lot of time to play.

The last 2 women I dated seriously were a little jealous because they still had to work. One even told me I should get a job because she still had to go to work.

They already have an over 60 forum. They've taken over the Over 45 forum.

I hope someone would get them damn kids off my lawn.

I think a women would be pleased to have a man try to connect with her. Maybe just a simple, " ma'am, I have to say you are very attractive! " if she responds favorably , then maybe just say, I would love to know more about you, could I interest you in a cup of coffee or soft drink at ..." and then go from there.

nice t'have ya back....well...it depends upon how he tries to connect :) When I was a lad, I asked out a lot of women b/c my mother had told me beautiful women rarely got asked out. I was shot down often, but usually the lady took it as a simple compliment. The ladies who didn't like it, weren't thrilled a guy in my league would dare. oh well. I can also say, some people won't even notice they're being hit on by someone they'd rather not imagine naked :) Unless someone specifies WHY they want to take that person out to dinner.

You might think so, but the reality indicates otherwise.

Getting favorable responses here, and online dating in general right now, is like pulling teeth.

Unless a guy is 6 feet tall, a male model, and drives $1.4 million Ferrari LaFerrari.
