What is the strangest message you have received thus far on here?
Posted: 3/16/2018 11:00:43 PM
Back when I was 60 I received a message from an 81 yr old which said he wasn't interested in a relationship with me but wanted to meet up for dinner because I looked exactly like his daughter.

What is it with 50+ women and wanting to stay single???
Posted: 12/19/2017 4:40:28 PM
The same reasons men in their 50's and 60's do. As you said "Who do they think they are kidding"

As far as losing income I have been told that a married couple receives less in social security than if they were both single.
Depending one could also forfeit spousal support if they remarry.

"people will do what they want."
Wow this is earth shattering news let's stop the presses for this.
Miss strawberry came on here and posted about lying about her age. And then starts attacking those who disagree.
To each his own I just do not find desperation entitlement and vanity to be attractive traits.

smoker who lied on profile
Posted: 6/15/2016 10:32:52 AM
When someone points out a lie it does not constitute black or white thinking.
A lie is a false statement with deliberate intent to deceive. Then by definition adding 2 inches to one height is a lie.
If one wants to say that some lies are justifiable or some lies are worse then others it does not change the fact that they are still lies.

After one date you expect someone to change their life

If the op was male I can guarantee the advice would be totally different.
There are so many possibilities as to the why the beer goggles seems the most plausible to me.

What is being reasonable and what is settling?
Posted: 6/6/2015 11:24:04 AM
Until he gets sober and stays sober alcohol would be the third party in your relationship. I believe most recovery programs suggest st least a year of sobriety before one gets involved in a serious relationship.
I just don't think you would stand any chance of having a healthy relationship w/him until then.

Over 50...Are We Now Invisible?
Posted: 4/15/2014 10:06:51 AM
Being visible and attractive confident is no guarantee that you will meet age appropriate single men. In general there are less single men than women once you get over 50 now if you want a fling with a married man or a much younger man that's always available.

VK I live in the same town as you and work in the entertainment industry so I have been where you are. I am 57 so my DMV is less than zero here.
Whats works for me is focusing on the positives in my life and taking each day as it comes. No one knows what the future holds all you can do is be the best you possible and try to focus on the "now"

Posted: 12/11/2013 11:55:47 AM
If you don't like the term "rebound" than how about "transition man" because that is what you are. She's told she doesn't want a relationship yet she's more than happy to hang out kiss cuddle you are easing her through until she's ready for a relationship. But it won't be with you. If you want a relationship than start dating women who are emotionally ready for one.

Thank goodness for the quiet cars on the train in England. It was wonderful not to be subjected to cell phones constantly ringing, teens playing noisy games on tablets etc.
I notice more places of business have no cell phones signs here in US. esp doctors/dentists offices.

Won't tell me his last name
Posted: 8/2/2013 11:59:43 AM
It just seems like if someone has nothing to hide then why would giving his last name be a big deal.
She knows where he works to me so I'm not sure what the issue is about the last name.


adventurejoe 70

First of all what the f&*& do you know about dating 30 years ago you were all of 10 .
It takes someone with an oversize ego who thinks "everyone" is after their personal information. Paranoia will destroy you.

Posted: 7/29/2013 11:01:11 AM
IMO
He sees you as a friend for whatever reason. he is more than happy to go to lunch with you, interact with you on facebook. If he was interested in you romantically he would have followed up on the invitation you proffred when you had lunch with him.

A few extra pounds to me is 20 or less. The key word is "few" I just don't see how anyone could define 50 + as a "few". There needs to be a new dictionary that provides definitions for the online dating world I guess.

Finding love when your older, is it possible? Really?
Posted: 6/28/2013 1:56:18 PM
I am 56 and I just don't see it happening. Women outnumber men at this age and most men over 50 don't want to date women over 50. The only offers I have had both online and IRL are from men 20+ years my junior.
A few lucky ones will find love

What jerseygirl2008 said.

"Everybody deserves a chance" NOT
See there are people that one can dismiss fairly quickly based on the what you posted this individual would appear to be one of them.

Why would you continue to interact with him at all? Are you that desperate for attention?

Online dating versus meeting in public...bar etc. Seems that Public is easier.
Posted: 5/24/2013 10:06:54 AM
Online dating for me a women over 50 just does not work in my time on various sites it was either very young men 15+ years younger than me or men who looked like Santa Claus. IRL for me there are more options because I am not eliminated right off the bat due to my age. Meeting thru friends, coworkers or while participating in some group activities.

Seriously I don't how one can be "attracted" to an online profile/photo when you don't even know if the photo is current and whether any information written in their profile is true.

It never ceases to amaze me how big of a problem reading comprehension is among adults in the US.

They have NEVER met in person. They have talked only. They have never been around each other since they have never met in person. See how it works? So before going off on one of your whiney boy tangents please have the facts straight.

Posted: 10/15/2012 10:21:53 AM
These are guys she's just meeting none of them are her boyfriend sheesh.

The implication is that if they were to get into relationship she would not be able to resist her personal trainer
And this is w/o even knowing her

Should Guys pay the full amount on the first Date/Meet?
Posted: 10/10/2012 3:12:28 PM
The solution is to let go of all "shoulds" when it comes to dating these days and only meet/date those who share your views on who pays and all the other dating rules. Seems simple enough state your views upfront and if they are not shared then don't meet/date them.

It depends how much younger it also depends on the individuals. There are always "old souls" who aremore mature than their chronological age. I don't have kids so maybe that's why I don't see an issue if a 50 something women and 30 something man get together the man may only want sex but then again he may not.
