Age has nothing to do with servitude......

This is something that is NOT going to change. Some men like younger women. Why would someone bother or pursue someone who is looking for something you are NOT?

I don't think of emailing any guy who states a preference that I can't "deliver". Why would I?!

I'm 54.

Reading profiles of women in my age group is so damn depressing.

Either they:

* Hate men

* Are looking for a man with money to support them – They were so use to staying at home having their hubby supporting them and expect things to be the same as it was back in the 60’s and 70’s.

* Can’t wait to retire and die. All they talk about is retiring. I like my career and don’t want to give it up because some old bitty can’t wait to be sitting in a rocking chair knitting waiting till they croak.

* Are so obsessed with their grand children that they can’t talk about anything else. I don’t even know why they post a profile on the dating sites. They obviously don’t have any room in their life for a new relationship.

Why don’t you women try reading some of these profiles that other women write, then you will understand.

Some people love life and want to do many things in their life, while others just want to sit back and do nothing with their life. I am the former and can’t stand the later. My ex portrayed the former but turned out to be the later. The former will not get along with the later and would rather be with a younger person whom they perceive to also be a former.

What does it really matter. We all want what we want. You cannot force your desires on others. This is wat makes the world goes round.

IMO its not that men think that younger women are better, they just think that they are easier to.....do - without alot of effort. A man who is actively searching for a woman seven years or more his junior 90% is just looking for that physical connection. Especially since they believe that the younger ones have less sexual experience, and will have to do the minimum to impress them in that arena.

They also know that women their own age want a clearly defined and carried out commitment, and they are looking to avoid that and play "Georgie Porgie" / "Peter Pan" (forgive the referrences as my five year old loves it) forever.

Interesting...I have a girlfriend who is 54 and she says the same thing about men HER age.

Perhaps it's just the people that one meets.

Well honestly, women are starting to do this too with younger men...

Its not that people think the much younger person is *better*, they just think the younger person is hotter. Usually our income increases with age and generally the older partner pays for everything. Basically they are buying a plaything, not searching for a soulmate.

It's not what's 'better', or 'what our buddies will envy us for'. We aren't trying to 'recapture youth' either. Men are simply attracted to women who are most likely able to get pregnant, have viable offspring, and raise our kids. It's natural selection, dna influenced. Guys attracted to post menopausal women won't pass along their dna as much, and over oh, a million years or so, the majority of men with genes that prefer old women tend to remove themselves from the gene pool. Sure, you'll always have some mutations, but the very vast majority of men will always favor young, healthy looking females. If that equates to what looks like a 20 year old with a figure with a waistline 70% of her hip size, clear skin, healthy looking hair, and a pleasant attitude, then that's what we're going to be attracted to. The concept of a 'trophy wife' is something made up by older women ticked off that their ex husband was attracted to someone younger, and often prettier than she had become as she aged. Guys don't go through all the trouble to court and marry a woman just so other people can look at her. We marry women that turn us on, because in the end, that's the most important quality to us. Hotness trumps a lot of other bad traits. Without that, nothing else is important. Sure, there are other things that are important too, but if we aren't turned on by you, then there's no reason to pursue a romantic relationship.

Steller. You speak the truth as far as the millions of years programming.
So many woman don't want to acknowledge any of that!

I just find (most of the time) that younger women are just plain more fun and
easier going which equates to easier to deal with! Also, there is less chance of
them having children,although only marginally!

I think a sister question to this would be... "What is it about older women, that makes older men seek out younger women?"

Lets just go there, I personally do NOT WANT TO SEE A MAN MY DADS AGE, undressed, kinda gross. Keep the age within 6 years up or down is acceptable.

Funny thing about this site and others . I have spoken to men that are my age or a little older that have lied about their age because they know they will not get as many hits if they don't. Well they did not make any impression on me . I hate a liar .I don't care what age they are.

As far as fun. Fun does not stop at a certain age as Plastic Sturgeon suggested . It depends on how creative one can be. Childless younger women? Check your stats PS there are more women on this site with kids than a little bit.

As for myself .I choose to date from 35-50 . I'm 53 .

I don't act it , don't look it, and my kid is out of my house.

This is a multi page thread - I maybe have said the same thing pages ago.

Some might be in a time warp - like me.

The oldest female I have ever been around is my ex wife. She turned 49 last month.

My oldest grand kid recently turned four.

When gals around my age contact me - I have no idea what to say to them. They simply don’t seem to be in my man/woman “age group”.

Also .... someone above spoke of grandkids. Many gals in my age group have GREAT GRAND KIDS ...... my oldest grand kid is four.

I also - when gals start to define themselves as a grandma ...... in my pea brain they start to remind me of my mom.

Far too many females - FORGET they are a female FIRST then a mom - sister - grandma.

When some gals profile is mostly raving about their grandkids .............. I totally stop thinking boy/girl. I don’t want to date a GRANDMA - I want to date a woman.

Even my ex ........ as relative young as she is (compared to me) - four years ago proclaimed herself .......... I AM A GRANDMA - and then she said “nothing else matters”.

Does anyone REALLY not understand why some people think they fit better with a younger or older person?

I was in a twenty year time warp ...... there is NO WAY I can push some button and change that.

Yeah, But then SOME women think Ellen Degenerates (sp?) is funny!

Just look at the stats! How many men always have their next GF or
wife younger then the previous one? And it REALLY, REALLY pisses
many women off! Understandably so, but that doesn't change anything!

It is about choices, and we tend to choose that which is usually unatainable. Our standards are higher for ourselves is all. Younger is a mind set, no-one wants to fade away. So someone younger boosts our self-esteem, increases our libido, and lets us be younger for how ever long this lasts. Yet eventually the bottom line is what we are all looking for. We really want love but if it is lust we have settled for, we have settled for less. Younger is not better it is just for a little period of time until the next generation comes along...the question then is are we rich enough to keep the facade up?

Well i know for myself women my age for the most part either refuse to or are incapable of keeping their bodies in shape.Alot of them still dress and have the same style they did in the 80's and when it comes to THE COOL FACTOR it seems to be somewhat non existant.Now don't get me wrong,i'm not saying all,but a large percentage foe sure.As far as i'm concerned i believe i am the exeption to the 40 year old guy rule it would be really nice to find a lady like me!

^^^^^^^^^ I Totally agree with Speedemon.
So many women over 35-40 have lost their waistline, and they've done little if anything to fend off the ill effects of aging, and as stated above, they seem altogether locked in a style reminiscent of the 80's big hair timeframe. Further, there seems an inability to flow with the times, to adjust or adapt new ways of thinking. I find myself able to communicate with people of all ages, to genuinely relate to older and younger people, but some women my age seem rather stalled, and find it difficult to move and groove. One particular issue is musical taste. I've been able to accept and enjoy a lot of new music styles, particularly the hip-hop and alternative music, yet a number of women I meet can't accept a new musical taste. All of this comes on top of the entitlement many women have come to appreciate, due to the feminist movements, and their ideas on dating are also antiquated, in that men should still "entertain" them, that men should be " at their beckoning call", to repeatedly call (or email), to "chase" them, all the while, every other form of social norms has changed towards a more equal gender posture.
I personally have a much more youthful approach to life. I doubt there are "many" women my age who would go rock climbing, water skiing, rigorous hiking, or any number of other physical activities,. because they've become sedate. They've morphed into a granny-like state, and yet they still anticipate men catering to their wants and desires. Young women, on the other hand, still have this entrenched ideology that older men are gross, disgusting perverts, if they show interest in them. In sharp contrast, many other Countries (Europe, Latin America, Asia, et al) have an enormous appreciation for older men engaging younger women. Americanized women have for ages wanted their cake, and have gotten to eat it too. I think it's time men retract, disregard the old norms, and stand firm in their beliefs that if they are truly fit, socially forward thinking, stylish, able to adapt new patterns, that women who are still stuck in the past can do so all by themselves. I've migrated to a new mentality, and i see no reason why i should step backwards by dating/engaging women who are stuck somewhere in the 80's.

Meh, who cares who someone else dates or the reasons they are doing it. If you like someone that is young enough to be an child of yours, so be it. I personally wouldn't want to do that because the majority of younger guys I have been with don't have a clue what to do sexually and they become attached too quickly. Plus I have no interest in being a teacher. Sure they are pretty to look at, but beyond that, they can't offer me anything.

Also, when I see the way some younger girls in their 20s acting the fool, I'm amazed anyone can get serious about them.

I'm with speeddemon and manerider. I seek someone who is NOT an old fuddy duddy. Since I've been working out since my early twenties, I'm seeking the same as I'm interested in keeping fit as I grow older.

It's been my experience that photos are really a killer, people look so much better in person. Not enough people take advantage of the events.

Manerider, I know alot of women older than me who are into hiking, dragonboat racing, working out and they are from 44-54. They complain that they cannot find someone their age that is "young". I think that many people pick up the wrong people online.

I don't find it gross that older men like younger women. I do find some men gross because they dress like trailer trash and then expect to hook a woman who has style and who presents herself well. I'm a firm believe in expecting what you can offer and I think that everyone deserves that.

While many men continue to say that they are going to change their ways, the honest truth is that not much has changed. Unless change is forced, people DO not change. I know, because change was forced on me and now it is easier for me to change my views - just by reading these forums I have changed my outlook and I contact and approach men. I figure I should go after what I want instead of waiting for it. It doesn't net me a thousand messages, but when I do post a somewhat more visually appealing pic, it does net more responses.

As for the chasing thing....here's a story I have posted a million times on here and not ONE person has refutted or debated it:

8 year olds. He comes over, she runs away, he chases her for a while and then gets tired and goes away. 5 minutes later he is back, she runs away, he gets mad and goes away again, 5 minutes later he's back again. Where did they learn this behaviour at 8 years old???? I don't think they learned it, I think it's inside of them. It's going to take many many decades for that to change. Read the forums, most women will NOT contact a man. I don't think that many men are willing to sit around alone paying heed to a "new mentality".

In the end, both sexes lose out. In my opinion, people should be flexible enough to meet halfway. But that's an idea ahead of it's time too.....

If that's the reason for woman not chasing men, so be it!

It's sad though! I know I have missed opportinities where
a woman was giving (supposedly) strong buying signals but
because of circumstances or ethical considerations, I could
not risk making any assumptions!

I don't know! I'm tired of the whole, trying to decipher the
women's body language thing, to determine interest!

I'm curious what this Trailer Trash style of Dress for men is.
I watch Trailer Park Boys Religiously, and I don't see any one
particular style! lol But I kind of like how the girls dress!
Tight Leopard Skin Pants will always be in style and totally appropriate
just about anywhere as far as I am concerned!

Ha! When I was 8 the little girls used to chase me around. We'd step out for recess, and I'd have half the girls in the class mad at me because I shared my M&Ms with someone other than them.... Of course, they may have just really liked M&Ms.

^^^Well of course it's all about the candy! Sorry to burst your bubble :)

Trailer trash = I wear a nice dress to an event and most of the guys there end up wearing sweats or their old ratty jeans etc. Women notice when a man makes an effort to look nice too.

I don't understand how a woman is unable to give a clear signal to a man. If I am not interested, I turn away or end the conversation. If I am interested, I look at him, smile and many times go right up and talk to him. Mind you, I've been told I am an anomaly.

Not everyone looks like Shania in leopard skin. Many people have love handles to some degree, but some people don't know how to dress. It's like wearing a tight shirt over a huge gut, not very attractive.

I don't understand how a woman can't give a clear indication of interest
either! I've had woman flirt with me, touch me, make all the crazy motions,
but they are just being friendly and some are (Happily?) involved so WTF?
Then some get all pissy the next time you see them because you didn't
"get it"! lol

Women are so much smarter then men when it comes to Romance. Why
can't they simply utter a couple of words that would get things going?
Or make something up, like something needs fixing! I thought women
were good at that too, or is that a lost art?

I suspect that if more women ate rice cakes washed down with spring water,
more would like good in those pants! lol

I put it down to a girl's lack of understanding how a male might interpret that type of touching.

Some women think that when a man asks a woman to dance, she can say yes and it doesn't mean that she's interested. Perhaps men don't take it that way because of the subtle signals women give? I never say yes to a dance unless it's a man I know already or if I am interested. I might be wrong, but I'd rather make my interest or non interest crystal clear.

I'm not sure but I think because most men were raised expecting a woman to be "demure", most men don't really like my upfront attitude. I know some women like this (demure etc) and they are seldom without attention or dates.

Women don't like to ask favours of men because:

Sometimes it's just a favour and not an actual interest.
Society has taught many women that they don't "need" men or anyone for that matter!
Some women have been in a situation where sex was expected in return.

And on and on and on.....
