Is it harder to date now?Page 9 of 9    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)
it's not harder to date now that i'm 59 and it's not harder to FIND a date.

it's harder for me to find a date who is FUN!

example:
I don't want to go to Kennywood, the rollercoasters make me sick.
I don't want to see Katy Perry I don't like that stuff it's for kids.
truck night doesn't do anything but get you dirty.
I don't like going to the haunted house or hayride.
it's midnight and i'm tired of dancing, can we go home?
why do we have to dress up in costumes to go to the Medieval Faire?
I can't go out this Saturday, i'm watching the grandchildren.

^^^I gotta say, at 54, I can relate to those statements. Roller coasters and haunted houses? I don't think so. I can think of other 'fun' activities, and the older I get the more content I am to not to 'do' a whole lot.

While I do enjoy my Sundays nights watching Downton Abby, I like to DO stuff as well. I'm not infirm or near death, I enjoy a new adventure or just trying something new whether it's a new restaurant, a new vacation spot, a new park, a new museum, etc. And yes, I'd ride the roller coaster or run the zip line.

We are a long time dead. So enjoy the days we have. There are a million things out there to catch our attention, engage us, challenge us, interest us or just try something new. My children have long gone, it's not my job to raise the grandchildren - it's my time.

To me, finding a guy who just wants to spend time watching football or baseball on the idiot box is boring and I don't want that type of man. I want a do'er or a guy that can balance doing things and having a little quiet time.

Dating is still no problem for me at age 61. A few days ago I met a mid-thirties model quality, sexy, smart, successful lady in the first class section of a flight home. She ended up giving me her card and wanting to get together for a glass of wine and maybe more. Life is great!

way to go like2dance^^^^

go where the action is. if the women our own age don't want to do it then we'll find someone who will.

and I personally don't mind going older even thought i'm 59.
