Is dating harder for men or women?Page 5 of 8    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8)

If Henry was ever able to attract younger women, that moment in time is long gone. What was it you said about Henry, whiterose, that being fat can be overcome if the person had a good personality? Nice slam, whiterose


NewYorker58, how did my statement, "Henry can still attract younger partners despite his age and size."

morph into

"being fat can be overcome if the person had a good personality"?

Either your reading comprehension skills need improvement, or you're deliberately making false allegations again, the same way you did before with the nonexistent "mom jeans" remark.

Henry has stated that he dates women of different ages. He also has stated that he will date women who are a few extra as long as he finds them attractive. I don't think it's such a stretch that some of the women he dates are going to be younger than he is.

It was the mom jean thread where you made that disparaging comment about being fat, with your HS persona, but I didn't really have to explain that did I?😉

Henry dates all ages? I'm sure he does, but who says those ages are youger? He's not of an age or in shape to get anyone his junior. Women also want to date someone attractive like he does.

Why isn't Henry hot? Really, you have to ask that question? He admits to not being in good shape. There you go. That's among people his own age.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And why would someone want to have sex with a man they have NO sexual attraction too?

Regardless of age, some people are more sexually attractive and they get the majority of interest.


You are just too dam picky. LOWER your damn standards. HELLO work with what you got. Start looking at the nursing homes, grannies need love too.
-----------------------------------------------

I suggest that select group of men stop believing in porn videos. HELLO, Superman can not really fly. PORN is not real. THAT is why they call it ACTING. THEY ARE PORN ACTORS.
---------------------------------------------------
No. Just no. I'm not that lonely. (Or that stupid)
-----------------------------------------------------

What makes it a lie?

No names, but above quotes are directed at a male poster, currently in absentia from this thread.
When a person repeatedly posts either lies or gross exaggerations, most people will see it.
Maybe some are less likely to call it out.


Agreed. It's interesting to me that the women who are slamming Henry aren't so hot themselves. I think it bugs them that Henry can still attract younger partners despite his age and size, whereas they can't do the same.

I don't see any proof of him attracting anyone, just a bunch or R-rated fantasies getting posted if you've lurked the forums you will see that. I do see a snarky old woman taking shots at a markedly younger looking raven haired woman. Funny, the old gal just put up a photoshopped head shot, if one enlarges the screen, they can see where the lips and eyes have been pasted in plus that an 83 year old face has had all the wrinkles and liver spots rubbed out. Funny said woman attacked another woman who looks like a slightly older version of Olga Kurylenko in Magic City, that now defunct TV show on Starz. "I smell green" as H. Skies was fond of saying...I don't recall what the H stood for...hideous? Horrible? Hellacious? Hirsute? Halitosis?


Henry attracts younger women? Not my impression. He would have to be spending money and dancing attendance for sure..

Younger attractive women can pick and choose, they can go witha hottie or maybe an older man as long as he has some $$$ and is generous with it.


If Henry was ever able to attract younger women, that moment in time is long gone. What was it you said about Henry, whiterose, that being fat can be overcome if the person had a good personality? Nice slam, whiterose, aka, HS. I had a 52 year old guy ask me out today. He said I didn't look my age, and that I look younger than he does. I met a 56 year old guy at a New Year's Eve party. I'm not looking to necessarily go out with anyone younger than me, but that's who asks me out. It's a hard life being stuck dating younger guys☺

You go girly!


If a man is 65+, a woman 50+ compared to his chronological age is considered consirably younger. Today's 50-year-old women are hotter and sexier if they have a great outlook, don't settle for "low-hanging fruit," are relatively in shape with a pleasing appearance, and have a good disposition. She, to0, is well within her right and power to find somebody of her caliber...It's not anybody's job to ensure broken, older, cheap men have dates, no more than fat phobics are required to ensure fat people are dated.

Let alone that younger hotter women are having hot nasty sex with old fantasist men.


If I am high maintenance because I expect a man to bring so much more to the table than a penis then sue me. I BRING SO MUCH MORE THAN BOOBS. So much more. And Why would I need to come online if all I was looking for was a warm body with a penis since when I walk to get my lunch men follow me down the street and give me their number? Or when I am in the grocery store MEN follow me around asking for my number. OR when I am headed to my office MEN stop me and ask for my number. HELLO, I HAVE HAD MEN ASK FOR MY NUMBER AT TRAFFIC LIGHTS. So you will forgive me IF BEING MALE AND INTERESTED is not enough. Sorry. It is hard work to across from a guy YOU have no interest in and who is dull as dishwater and EAT THE FREE FOOD. IT is not worth it. I am a divorced woman on the tail ended of her good looks and I would like to use these looks to find a HUSBAND who will be around when his wife isnt the hottest 80 year old in the retirement home. I really am sorry if you have to be more than interested and male because most men do not get you are at the end of a long line of interested males.


I think quite a few women on this site fit this bill and more power to them if they realize it and use or have used what they have.

NewYorker58, yes, you need to explain it. Please quote the statement where a disparaging comment was made about Henry being fat, and provide a link to it. I'm pretty certain that whatever the comment was, as usual, you've somehow managed to twist the words.

And speaking of disparaging Henry, isn't this what you're doing in message 63?

I just discovered their compilation on Spotify. Search for The Glories and under albums is Soul Legend. It has their entire output of 15 songs. I own the Japan only issue of the CD that has 17 tracks (2 versions of 2 tracks are the extras).

I just added Soul Legend to my library, and listened to 'I Worship You Baby' for the first time - great track! Thank you cooldog! I'm listening to the rest of the album now. :-)

Edit: Ooh, cooldog - 'Try A Little Tenderness.'

Whiterose, you know what you've said in the past.

Henry is a realist, to an extent, and has made negative comments about himself. Maybe you need to speak to him about that, not me. Henry is not going to come out of the wood work to applaud you, because as you know, he wouldn't be interested in you.

You're a hooter...er, I mean, hoot, juju. But you're fun to read, hope you stick around. Your dim view of men and your colorful writing style reminds me of another poster here that flits in and out here like a papillion. Actually, I'm not yet convinced you're not a sock puppet of hers. You have two other, um, things in common with her...I'll just leave that to the imagination. Otherwise, regarding you two, what's the saying, boobs of a feather, flock together?

Sue? Gives a whole new meaning to the term "Legal briefs." And I'd beware of such a threat, you wouldn't get to choose the jurisdicktion.


I BRING SO MUCH MORE THAN BOOBS. So much more.
Again, I think that's clear based on your writing. But the problem is, and this will bring out some daggers from the fine wimminzfolk here, is when boobs presented to be so.....well, "in your face," it brings out the h0rn dogs. Both online and IRL. Sorry, but that's the way it is.

Many women don't have these options though. Would you rather be ignored? I bet the majority of people - both male and female - go through every day being ignored as a sexual being. The other thing, all these opportunities don't impress many men. I think it brings out the more competitive ones, who want you as a trophy, cuz then they can show you off in front of all those other admirers, and feel triumphant. Most men don't want to hear about "I got a guy," options a woman may have. All it does is give them something to worry about, should they date you. It's much more of an accomplishment for a man to have many opportunities. A woman just has to be hot, and breathing. And for some men, breathing is optional lol.


It is hard work to across from a guy YOU have no interest in and who is dull as dishwater and EAT THE FREE FOOD.
Huh?


I am a divorced woman on the tail ended of her good looks and I would like to use these looks to find a HUSBAND who will be around when his wife isnt the hottest 80 year old in the retirement home.
I have 2 thoughts here. 1.)The problem is, with your looks, is many men, especially some nicer ones, will wonder if you one of those women who rode the "bad boy c0ck carosel" (credit to cooldog on that one lol) for years....and now finally want to find a "nice guy" to settle down with to take care of them whey they're old. Not saying it's true in your case. But that's what some guys think about. 2.) WHen you say this, it would make a guy consider that, once you "get your husband," whether you'd be one of those ones who "lets themselves go" physically. It happens. Guys who are looking LT think about that.

Reminds me of this song. Ironicially many of her videos glamorize "bad boys," though. Bad boys and someone lasting with you into old age is mutually exclusive.

I like guys in skinny jeans.
But if you're looking for men in your age range, you must like guys who look like a sausage stuffed into those skinny jeans.

And you wonder why I think you're paranoid about this? Like I said, about every other post is about men using women. Sigh.

Personally, (out come the daggers!) I believe that women who show pictures of themselves looking like a cleavage theme park should not be surprised at some of the responses they get from men. Of course it's their right to do so, and it's NOT right for men to approach women crudely either IRL or online....but it comes (pun avoided) with the territory of choosing that method of advertising. And advertising is what it is.

An interesting experiment would be a voluptuous woman showing it all....bare midriff, tons of cleavage, looking really, really hot as a sexual being....and the same woman wearing a stylish, but concealing blouse, glasses, and reading a book...looking hot in a different way. How would the responses differ?

I thought of a similar experiment back when the tv show "Ugly Betty" came on.

Before the show actually started airing and people knew who she was, have America Ferrera go into a nightclub dressed as "Ugly Betty", and see how many men approached her, and then have her go and change into her real looks dressed to the nines, and see how many men approached her then. And yet, it would be the same woman.

How many people who saw "Ugly Betty" first could suspect that she really looked like America Ferrera really looks like?

SS45, You're talking about how things are, well, that's how things are when men choose a woman solely based on pics. Am I wrong with this thinking? I definitely do not disparage all men, and my negativity is about OLD, not so much about men IRL.

I enjoy men, and appreciate our differences, except for men wanting to use women as a sperm bucket. Those types may scoff at women thinking there are men that enjoy other aspects of their company, but there are other types of men, and I've dated them. Men that are less sophisticated don't have any interests they want to share with women. I don't date those men. Men have to make themselves more attractive than a BOB if I'm going to date them.

Not that NYer needs it, but I guess I am casting myself in the role of White Knight here...

First off, NO ONE IN HERE "NEEDS" to EXPLAIN A FVCKING THING TO YOU...even if you were the owner of the Match Group, or Markus Frind, which I am certain you are not.

What you are is a Brillo Pad with Roy Orbison's sunglasses who is so mentally imbalanced, you have such an inflated sense of self, self righteousness, know it all, etc. I strongly suspect you are posting from a facility of sorts.

No one in here NEEDS TO PROVE ANYTHING TO ANYONE, PARTICULARLY YOU.

I would really love to see that experiment women doing wearing more sophisticated clothing pretty sure I mentioned that was what I was into a long time ago though. C'est la vie skimpy, and bikinis it is odd suit one every 400 women look at that there are some who dress according to their profiles guess I better find some better pictures now. Yeah right

LOL Bad boys wish they had what it took to get me. I am what you guy call a bad girl. 1ST Husband was a good who was the first guy I slept with in high school. He developed a serious mental illness caused the divorce of two teenagers. 2ND husband worked for NASA. He was selfish but by no means a bad boy. 3RD husband is an executive at a major international accounting firm. He was younger and wanted children. I was older and didn't want to battle the weight that would come from a 40 something-year-old woman having a child. I don't do bad boys mainly because they tend to be dumb as a box of rocks and I am not attracted to stupid men. I am EVEN less that attracted to a dumb man than a chubby man. (NO offense to the chubby people of the world WE all have our preferences)


Personally, (out come the daggers!) I believe that women who show pictures of themselves looking like a cleavage theme park should not be surprised at some of the responses they get from men. Of course it's their right to do so, and it's NOT right for men to approach women crudely either IRL or online....but it comes (pun avoided) with the territory of choosing that method of advertising. And advertising is what it is.


Kind of like the men who take pictures next to cars, houses, or other expensive toys?? And sorry but I am not a nun. I don't dress like one. So YOU know exactly what you going to get with me. Now if a guy is looking for a Sunday school teacher with a stripper body Good luck with that. Doubtful you will find that but YOU never know. In addition at 52 I get to decide what I want to wear. I had my mother tell me then my husbands now it is ME who makes these decisions. REGARDLESS of what a woman wears give NOT one soul the right to insult her. No more than I have the right to insult a man for wearing old worn clothes or 70-inch beer gut.
Respect one of the main things so few men and women have each other.

As far as letting myself go. I have been married 3 times and had 4 children and been pregnant 5 times. The last thing I would do is mistreat the body I am encased in. THERE is no trade in for bodies. YOU get what you get.


It's much more of an accomplishment for a man to have many opportunities.

Really? Why is that? I am a 50 something-year-old women who STILL have men chasing me. I have had NO plastic surgery ( I don't knock that either because I would if I could afford it)

A woman just has to be hot, and breathing. And for some men, breathing is optional lol.

WRONG, boo boo A woman has to be YOUNG, hot and breathing. I haven't been young for a long damn time but I have still managed to hang on to the HOT and breathing part so you will excuse me if I am feeling pretty damn good about myself.

I am no body's puppet. I am my own woman. I say what I think because I am the grandmother of three granddaughters who need to see a strong woman with a working mind.
PS I don't hate men. I have 3 ex-husbands whom for the most part I still talk to. 3 sons, 1 son in law And the most amazing DADDY of any little girl in the world could hope for. I believe my soul mate is a mature well rounded accomplished man who expects so much more than T&A from the love of his life (that is me). No, I would rather be single than stuck with a middle age teenager attempting to play his real-life fantasy of Porge. I have never done drugs. I have never been abused or hit EVEN by my father. I have never had a man take me for my money or call me out my name. BECAUSE I have been treated so well by the men in my life I am well aware of a man who can't live up to those standards.


Sorry for the Novel.

What novel that's a minor essay compared to the sheet I used to put up there. It's a nice to know there are ladies like you and cutenerd out there, you gave me reasons to put some sort of faith back into dating. As they are all as mean and nasty as the majority of the ladies who plagued these forums for years.

Truth is there is women hold a conversation on topics, usually about as good as a coffee cup with a hole in the bottom holding water. You just don't discuss anything but family and friends with them they wonder why you leave, or don't spend time with them all that much. Well sorry if I wanted to know what Jane and Joe's problems were I would ask them. Excuse me while I go back to my McGraw-Hill Ryerson text books their more interesting, maybe a Linwood Barclay novel while I wait for some more enlightenment on all about how I think as a man from a woman.

You have to accept my apology I don't find women all to interesting as of what they really offer here is nothing more than a lifetime in the house, and socializing with their family, friends with lots of rumor, heresy, and gossip oh the appeal in that. I would much rather go to see Simply Queen playing live, or a trip to Ottawa next week and let them stew on the fact I don't need them to do anything. They think their bodies and sex is really that important they never came across a man with self-control who practices Stoicism in their lives.

I would love to find this out. Although I get the feeling that the only difference would be the amount of sexual responses, not a total lack of them in one profile. Don’t have the body type, or I’d test it myself out of curiosity.

dark_n_juju

when I walk to get my lunch men follow me down the street and give me their number? Or when I am in the grocery store MEN follow me around asking for my number. OR when I am headed to my office MEN stop me and ask for my number.


Damn, dark n juju, you really do have magical powers! How do you get that to happen? Then again, I'm shy, so if any of that ever happened to me, I’d probably run and hide.

Well, Juju responded and I for one, agree with your assessment of Juju: "hoot, juju. But you're fun to read, hope you stick around"

"some daggers from the fine wimminzfolk here" thank G*d they don't have "guns" ;0)

"Most men don't want to hear about "I got a guy," options a woman may have. All it does is give them something to worry about, should they date you. " Those types aren't worth diddly squat, no confidence in themself or respect for the woman they date.

"I have 2 thoughts here. 1.)The problem is, with your looks, is many men, especially some nicer ones, will wonder if you one of those women who rode the "bad boy c0ck carosel" A man who thinks that way is just plain stupid (hint to the one who coined the phrase who is still hanging around here whining about being single) The assumption is if a woman is attractive she must be promiscuous? Unattractive women in my experience are more promiscuous because they overall use sex to compete. I had a homely librarian type all but attack me the first second we were alone and it was not on a date, it was a professional interaction. Huge turn off and potential lawsuit/jail time. No I am not into your Dewey Decimal System!

" it's NOT right for men to approach women crudely either IRL or online" Correct it reflects on the man much more than on the woman.

Does that album include The Glories cover of "Lullaby of Love"? below is the original by the Poppies

No, but I discovered that they share a CD called "The Poppies Meet The Glories". There's a total of 29 tracks with 14 for The Poppies and 15 for The Glories. Only the Poppies' version is there. I can't find any info on a version by The Glories.

I had read about it on a on a music forum a long time ago but when I looked at that thread again I saw that the poster was mistaken and had just confused the Poppies with the Glories

I have only read a few posts here (I was looking for posts from Cameltoe...heard they were funny....can somebody point out where I should be looking please?

Anyway...at my 40th high school reunion, the women were simply better looking than the men overall. Women are more likely to keep themselves in shape than guys...many of whom do look sort of like Henry (sorry Henry....nothing meant by that).

Plus women use makeup to enhance their looks.

and Yes...fitness makes all of the difference....not to say there is not somebody for everyone, but it is to say that more fit means more attractive, and even when the hormones have stopped flowing like in your youth....the good looking gals (and guys I'm sure) are just nicer to look at.

but you know, no matter how fit you are...gravity is still going to take its toll....skin is going to show age spots and wrinkles....eyes are going to dim...in fact, looking at somebody young vs. somebody forty years older, the eyes actually do not seem as bright, and yep......hair is never as luxurious...if you are lucky to have hair.

Still... I reestablished a relationship with a very good friend from HS and we got into a discussion about attractiveness. I said older women her age were looking for younger guys...and she said "NO WAY"..she also said that even some older guys...older being in their sixties, could still be gorgeous....of course she was in her sixties too.

I do remember my grandmothers who were in their sixties back then, and even now looking at their photos...they still look like very old women. Women today keep themselves looking much better for their ages than times past.

Hope the robot doesn't get me and make this thread unreadable, but FUK the admins...plenty more profiles where this ATA came from :-)

when I walk to get my lunch men follow me down the street and give me their number? Or when I am in the grocery store MEN follow me around asking for my number. OR when I am headed to my office MEN stop me and ask for my number.



Damn, dark n juju, you really do have magical powers! How do you get that to happen? Then again, I'm shy, so if any of that ever happened to me, I’d probably run and hide.


If I saw an interesting looking woman, I'd make it a point to keep an eye out for her. But I wouldn't follow her.

Why? Well, for the reason you stated. I'm not into stalking anyone. Because some stalkings have had some pretty nasty endings. I'm not out to make anyone feel uncomfortable.

I agree with you. I think we learned younger that if we keep our bodies tight then it will look better. We had NO clue it meant well into our 50's. And I have seen women in their 60's who look amazing. People still have men believing they don't have to put as much an effort in their looks. Which means I end up with a guy who looks EVERY day his age plus a couple of years.
The thing is men don't want women to want them for their money SO women become financially independent now WE are going to want something from the guy except Viagra generated boners. And yes that is good looks and a slightly firm body. IN ADDITION to the fact, he has to be intelligent and have a personality that will not put her sleep OUTside the bedroom.


1.)The problem is, with your looks, is many men, especially some nicer ones, will wonder if you one of those women who rode the "bad boy c0ck carosel" (credit to cooldog on that one lol) for years....and now finally want to find a "nice guy" to settle down with to take care of them whey they're old.

I did not realize you were suggesting I had slept around. HELLO, I am 52 with three ex-husbands and 4 children. I am in NO way a virgin. And who the hell expects me to be at this age? I think that is the main problem with men in this age group. Their minds have failed to mature as fast as the guts. YOU are looking for a 52-year-old divorced virgin for a wife in your old age then CRY like a stuck pig when she isn't interested in YOU sexually.
And NICE guys are rarely NICE. The majority of them are so confused as to what that word really means. In fact they are more likely to think the old English meaning that the more modern-day meaning of the word. At least whenever a man describes himself as nice that is what I think.
Being single has its upside. The thing about life, ANYTHING in this world is exactly what you think it is. You DECIDED weather you are going to be happy or not. I am totally cool being single. I turn down more dates than I take. Yes, I have several cats but my life is good. So yes a man has to be very pulled together to get me to give up being single.



PS... I really like the forum.

I have been celibate since my last divorce and the separation started in 2005.

Glad I proof read that because that was a Hot F#$%ing mess.
