Ageism
Posted: 2/8/2019 11:51:38 AM
Ever since I became single in my early fifties I dated younger women. Initially they were in the 10 years younger range. As time went by I dated relatively younger women until now they run about 25 years younger than I am. Sorry, but I am just not interested in dating women nearer my age and I don't have to anyway.

My senior citizen aged boyfriend has slept with 150 women; Why do I feel put off?
Posted: 7/25/2018 8:14:50 AM
How and why did he keep track?

Better multiply 150 by a number from 3 on up if he was a traveling musician.

School re-unions as a dating plaform - are they?
Posted: 6/29/2018 7:05:00 PM

I didn't recognize many of the people at my 45th high school reunion (especially the guys) ....although they ALL recognized me.


That's because they all resembled their grandparents.

School re-unions as a dating plaform - are they?

I saw the daughter of one of my female classmates at my last reunion. She was helping with the festivities and she was the hottest chick there...


The last reunion I went to was my 40th. I took the lady I had been dating for a couple of years. Classmates kept asking her whose daughter she was. Actually she was born the year after I graduated high school so it was a reasonable question.

Older men's expectations
Posted: 6/12/2018 4:58:32 PM
I know of men in their late 80's who retain an ongoing interest in sex. They all have had high sex drives all their lives and have enjoyed regular sex. It may be a use it or lose it proposition.

As for me if I am around attractive women appearing fecund I remain interested. If I am around termagants, grimalkins and the like I have no interest at all.

Older men's expectations
Posted: 1/14/2018 10:03:00 AM

I remember a while back, a woman who is deeply into astrology said that any guy who is to contact her must put the details of their birth-exact location and time of birth-into the first message. She would use that to determine if they would be a match or not. There would be no point in meeting someone if the stars and planets didn't line up properly at the moment the person was born.


Perhaps she wanted to verify the trues ages of the men she met? lol

What is Age Appropriate
Posted: 10/11/2017 11:50:22 AM
At age 64 half my age plus 7 is 39. In real life I am now meeting and dating women in their early 40's and view a 39 as a little on the young side, at least for LTRs. Internet dating does not work for me as I get hounded by older women in their fifties and sixties. Fortunately I reside in a area providing a plethora of both shapely and very good looking available women to date.

Women that compare their height to mens while wearing high heels.
Posted: 8/5/2017 4:21:18 PM
^^^^ I truly enjoy Malcolm Gladwell's books.

I guess I am just used to being around men on the tall side whom I consider average. At 6' 3" I am an inch shorter than my brother. One cousin is 6' 5". My uncles were 6' 3 and 6' 4"; my father "only" 6' 1". My ex-wife is petite at 5' 2". When we visited my family as my children were growing up they tended to take me aside and ask me what was wrong with my kids - they were not growing. When we visited their mother's family it was more like "Oh, they are so big.". My daughter turned out to be 5' 9" and my son probably 5' 8" although he and his sister have an "agreement" they are both 5' 9". He is a little self conscience about his height probably because he is shorter than any male relatives on my side of the family. Frankly, throughout my life I have never given my height a second thought one way or the other.

As a man gets into his mid fifties and sixties he may find himself dating a woman whose mother and/or father are younger than himself. It feels a little weird at first but one adjusts and soon gets used to it.

Tyra Banks and Wendy Williams I see as total knockouts and would absolutely want to date if they were single and interested whereas Maxine Waters and Michelle make me want to lose my lunch.

The bottom line for me is what I see and feel on an individual basis, not a racial basis.

An established rule of thumb is the woman should at least be half your age plus seven years. If you are 39 she should be at least 26 - 27 years of age. As too how old you go, how old do you need to go to find women attracted to you?

Is 61 the cut-off age for having any luck on POF?
Posted: 5/28/2017 9:58:50 AM
Where I live the carpet seldom if ever matches the drapes. Every woman I know colors or tints her hair; at least if she is under 80 years old, cares about her appearance and can afford to get her hair done. That is the American way!

Unfortunately women lying about their ages in their profiles is epidemic. It seems to me that these days it is counterproductive since one can so readily obtain a person's age on the internet given even their telephone number. No one I know desires to start a relationship with someone who lies about a material fact, such as their age. What other lies would await?

Hold the mayo
Posted: 5/20/2017 7:34:38 PM
Actually, a few women have acted a little shocked and questioned whether it would fit. I've hit bottom (painfully for her) in a size 6 , 5'8", 150 lb. woman and found a 5'2" woman a good fit. The largest jar of Hellman's was in a 5'5" 130 lb. lady although there have been others. One had practiced her Kegels so that although she had a jar of mayonnaise it felt like it contained channel lock pliers.

Men height vs women weight
Posted: 5/20/2017 5:04:30 PM
In my experience a woman's height is not all that related to her capacity. The condition of their muscles down there has a lot to do with it as well as how well they lubricate. Some are snug. Others are like a jar of mayonnaise.

Men height vs women weight
Posted: 5/20/2017 2:25:13 PM
While I was married I never paid much attention to the heights, weights and ages of women I knew at work and socially. However once I started dating and ran into misrepresentations of age, weight and at times height I started to examine the appearance of single women I met more closely. After several years I got to where I could judge a woman's weight to within 3 to 5 pounds for slender to average size women (not anorexic or obese women since they were not on my radar). If a woman was quite athletic and unusually muscular I usually judged them too light. I dated a woman who had been a track star and at 5'3" she was a size 2 to 4, depending, yet weighed 122 lbs.! I could usually nail their dress size although that varies by manufacturer, of course. I got pretty good at estimating their heights within an inch if they ranged from 5'2" to 5'10".

Over time I also became quite good at estimating a woman's age within my serious dating age range which at that time ran from the mid thirties to the mid forties. Some women who have great genetics and take care of themselves can look stunning well into their senior years. Others are perhaps not so fortunate genetically and if they do not take care of themselves their appearance ages rapidly. Nonetheless women all look their age, some terrific, some good, some OK and some not good at all.

Men Over 70
Posted: 5/12/2017 10:52:02 AM
The first vetting of a woman's profile by men of any age is via its photos. No pics, no reply or attempted contact, as the case may be. I never, ever reply to a woman not having a few nice photos up on her profile. (On the site(s) I use and have used I always have posted some great photos.)

Also the whole idea of placing a profile on a dating site is to establish contact. A good number of the women who contact me provide their phone numbers right off the bat in their initial emails to me to avoid wasting their and, hopefully, my time.

Is 61 the cut-off age for having any luck on POF?
Posted: 5/12/2017 10:40:59 AM

'm not single, but I look through here sometimes just for fun. And recently I did a "what if" look at single women in my area, and looked at age range 55-70 (I'm 65). It was interesting to see that there were a fair number of women in the lower part of that age range, from 55 to 59. But 60 and over, there were very few. It could be that women born pre-1957 aren't on the internet, or it could be that once people turn 60, they give up on online dating. Anyway, it does seem to bear out the title of this thread, that it's slim pickings over 60.


I'd wager a huge percentage of the profiles you found of women listing their ages as between 55 and 60 are the profiles of women actually over 60, some well over 60!

Men Over 70
Posted: 5/9/2017 2:37:26 PM

I’m surprised at the number of men over 70 on here, and their lack of communication. I’m willing to correspond with them and get to know them, but they all want something different than my response. They want immediate phone conversations or an immediate photo, or anything other than friendly correspondence on POF to get to know each other better.


The over 70 single men I know who are physically, fiscally and mentally healthy all date women in their early fifties to mid sixties. I imagine they are just not interested in dating women over seventy although they have long term platonic relationships with women their age whom they have known a long time.

Older woman younger man
Posted: 4/20/2017 7:56:55 AM

Damn straight he has to pay for it directly or indirectly. But the cost of a peer would be no less so why not go for the newer model? As a matter of fact, the newer model might be a lower cost alternative as his Viagra consumption would all else being equal go down!


A physician friend told me this story about an older gentleman patient of his. The man had come to him for a prescription for Viagra to assist him in continuing to have sex with his wife. On a return visit the man told the doctor that his prescription was working to help him have sex with his wife. The physician then asked him if it was working with his mistress. The man replied he did not need it when having sex with his mistress.

The Bamboozle Profile - I'm 40, no, I'm not!
Posted: 4/10/2017 9:14:06 AM
A profile in which the poster lies about her age and then in the body of the profile reveals her supposedly actual age is a total nuisance and waste of time. A reader spends time going through the body of the profile on a posted age before a possibly true age is revealed. Then such a poster will lie about how a younger (never an older) age got posted by mistake. Yeah...right!

I suppose they do it to come up in searches for younger women and as an artificial lure hoping some sucker will bite.
