^^^I think it was a bit of both....baggage and stuck in a rut.....shame really because we had lots of fun times together.


Yes, fun is always easier then all the other stuff for sure. As we all walked that same path as you.....


I assumed as he got to know me he would feel more secure but that didn't happen.


To hope is still a wonderful virtue nonetheless.....yet ,’’In order to succeed, your desire for success, should be greater than your fear of failure. ''Albert Einstein

I wonder if Albert had a true quote on relationships too? lol


He ended it once over something he wasn't going to get his own way about but came round and I allowed it as we talked it through but then he pulled the same stunt again so when he ended it again I made sure it was ended. I'm too old for drama and hassle.


Yes.....as in a True Love, Commitment & Affection, OK.....and one must also included with the everyday hassles life throws us too. Can you handle that too ? Is is rational & healthy in the relationship goals & desires too?
Not easy, but I’ll admit, thinking back, being only married once for 20 plus years......as a team, two heads are better then one..

Women are finally paying us back for leaving our wives for the younger secretary/assistant/babysitter/blah/yadda/etc/lol.

I blame social media, reality tv, and porn. It's given rise to hookup culture which has screwed up everyone's ideas about relationships. And when you date someone younger, in some ways, you're trying to hold on to your own youth.


Maybe it is just me but I notice just as many women over 30 who are looking for men 10+ years younger than themselves as women looking for men older than themselves.

It's not payback, it's having options.

But absolutely, technology has cheapened the dating process and turned it into a consumer product experience. When you are on a dating site, you are volunteering to become a product..actually, you are PAYING to be the product.

I don't know any woman over 30 who actively searches out younger men. From my experience, younger men approach us more than anything!

I get a feeling that maybe they do it just because it's not the traditional norm.

I'm trying to get rid of the 24-year-old who is interested in me, I know him from meetup. When he didn't yet know my exact age, I said to him "You know I'm 36, right?" He said "It's fine, I prefer older women." Now who wants to be called an OLDER WOMAN? Not me. I still get called MUCHACHA sometimes.

There is one guy in my class who is 8 years younger than me ... He's cute and fun , and so clingy ... He wants to study together , hang out together , go to the games together .. I now take 24 hours to reply his messages , but he's persistent .. I have no problem dating younger guys if Im attracted to them , but right now I like the ones who are my age ...

I dont find myself attracted to younger men. I would be more than happy to find someone my age or even 20 years older. Can't get a date to save my life. It's like being invisible...or..more like the friend zoned "buddy" guys like because I'm cool and low maintenance. Clearly, I am doing something wrong. *shrugs*

Yes. I get approached by younger guys and why should I say no if I have no other dates at that time? I also date guys my age or slightly older, it's whoever makes an effort and whom I find attractive. Going out for dinner tonight with a guy who is 9 years younger than me.

I've been told, "don't worry about your looks and height, as you get older they mature that stuff gets less and less important."
I get over 30 and every single lady my age wants a younger, taller and better looking boy toy.

What is FML?

Anyway, not true. I have no interest in younger men. I also prefer shorter men..around my height, 5" 7"....and as far as "toys" are concerned, I'm looking for a human being.

I'm 35 and won't look at a man who's 25. No way. Not unless he has his bacon together and is financially solvent, well educated (or well on the way to that), and is generally responsible for himself, which I haven't found here.

In a consumer society, there's a higher availability of what we consider to be independence. This extends to all venues of consumerism, including dating. Such a society goes to great lengths to ensure illusions of equality in order to protect those in places of power. Due to these illusions of equality, people generally have social approval to do whatever they want without hurting each other as long as they continue to be at least moderately productive. Under these circumstances, it's understandable to see people making non-primitive choices, finding small joys in life at the expense of whomever else's fragile opinion they might upset. Some people enjoy the company of an antiquated product while others want something new. Some give to charity, some buy fancy cars, and some do both.

For anyone who might misinterpret my comments on the illusion of equality: I absolutely believe all people are born equal, but I also believe the institutionalization of equality and the pursuit of consumer happiness serve as clever and convenient social distractions in much the same way Christianity served the Holy Roman Empire. What's really important in all this is that we do whatever we want without hurting each other. I say enjoy what looks like freedom and independence until it's disabled by social or political upheaval.

Hey, maybe in a few years, women will think old, fat, boring, jaded bald guys are fun and refreshing. I'm actually psyched about this happening.

I'd also like to add that just a little over a century ago, fathers were giving their very young daughters away, by arranged or actual marriage, to men 3x their age, and scarcely anyone had something to say about it apart from strong-willed and intelligent women who weren't afraid to be casualties of a war for gender equality. Why are we even questioning this, let's question men who hire 17 year old prostitutes.

This thread is old but still relevant.

I put in my profile looking for men up to 15 years my junior, and I'll tell you why. Women outlive men, so if I found someone younger and ended up in a long term relationship, maybe he wouldn't die 20 years before I did. My chosen age range leaves the youngest man who I think might be suitable at around 50, which I think is perfectly appropriate for a woman of 64. A 15 year gap like that might not work if the woman was 30, 40 or possibly even 50, but the older the woman's age, the better the chance the maturity levels are going to be fine if the man is a bit younger.

In my observation, at about age 60, a lot of men seem to start looking and acting worn out. I have a lot of energy, and I'd like to find someone who still wants to get out and do things on a regular basis. Also, most people tell me I look younger than my years. Based on the number of men under 60 who have contacted me and don't have one word to say about my age (one asked was that REALLY my age, he couldn't believe I was in my 60s), it looks like that assessment is accurate.

As long as my photo can attract a younger man, I'm going for it.

Then go for it.

That line of thinking was one of the reasons why I no longer date.

But I don't have the heart to tell granny to buzz off. In which case no reply is a reply.

I always feel funny coming to this thread because I'm way over 30.
But sometimes it has interesting posts.
Today is one of those days.

That's a new one-dating someone based on the person's projected life span. Is there a money-back guarantee for the guy if you kick the bucket first?

I look for women up to 15 years my junior, and I'll tell you why too. Women outlive men, so, me getting a gal who's 22 -- well, if I die in 35 years, that gives her Plenty of time to find a new guy, before she even hits 60. I'm just being kind to the ladies. :)

My ex husband is 10 years younger than I am. He wanted kids and I was past that point in my life. NOW I AM SINGLE. I believe had I married a man close to my age when I was younger I would not be single now.

As long as the man is over 18 then who cares . I know a lot of women over 30 dating 18 year old men.
