I worry more about distance and long distance romance in on-line dating, then my age. There is plenty of ineterest from men of all ages. It really depends on the man, and whether your long term goals are similar. Oh, and lets not forget chemistry.
I'm almost 52... I've met one man from this site and it wasn't a good match. I joined about a year ago and met one man then... it was a horrible experience. It just seems like either the older men want a marriage committment before we even meet or they are only looking for a s@x partner. I've received lots of interest messages, but they email a few times and then I never hear from them again. Go figure...
Offers of dates here are plentiful but they lack in quality. Most men here are married, or living with their girlfriend, or living with their mother, or looking to live with someone who will support them.
If a woman just wants some action she can get it here easily as long as she is not picky or on guard for her self esteem.
If she wants to be respected by someone with a measurable IQ she might come up short handed. I am not saying that Mr. Right does not exist here. I am saying he is the needle in the haystack. Well, maybe not a haystack. More like a needle in a cow flop.
Good on ya,nothing wrong with a little flattery, If two people are intrested / attracted to each other, why let something as insignificant as age interfere, as long as your both over the age of conscent. I think people often worry too much about what others will say, If they are friends or claim to care for your happiness they will accept it.
So best wishes to you all.
The one thing that I've learned about online dating is...patience, of course that doesn't mean that I actually PRACTICE patience, but finding that someone usually doesn't happen over night, or over the next week, or the next month either-LOL I ask myself why am I even trying, I get so discouraged. Lots of players, people go 'poof' & disappear, etc....
I've come 'close' and have even made a few very close & good friends, but I'm still hoping for a chance at a real one-on-one relationship.
I don't know how much age really plays into it, to be truthful.
ruth, i think all women of all ages have the chance for encounters with men. I'm 45, in my prime, and have dated more men since i turned 40 than when i was in my 20's! I feel older women know what they want, are more experienced and i think a little more tolerant of men. Keep the faith.
lol I sure hope theres a chance for older BBWS. I think age and appearance arent important as much as whats on the inside. If your gorgeous and stuck on yourself thats got to be a big turn off. When I go thru here "window shopping" (jk lol) I dont ever look at age or appearance on the profiles. I go straight for the parts about them and what they want in a person...and THEN I go and see if they have any hang ups on age and appearance. Age is a number and everyone is beautiful in some way. Have never met a truely ugly person. Heck even quasimodo was so "ugly" he was cute. There's a person for everybody out there. I'm just having fun while finding the "right" one lol
"YOU I LIKE BIG BEAUTIFUL WOMEN GOOD HEART EASYER TO TALK TO I LOVE TO HOLD HER HAND IT IS A TRUN ON
FOR ME IM A SUPER SIZE BIG HANDSOME MALE IM A DISABLE YOUNG GUY WHO LOVE THE BIG BEAUTIFUL WOMEN LIFESTYLE"
I've only been on here a few weeks & I've had a ton of hits. A young Argentinian wants me (wholeheartedly), a Norwegian wants me (to be submissive), 3 local married men want me (any which way they can), 2 men want me (as a pen pal, we've been writing back & forth & they're hilariously funny) and 2 men want to go out with me. Spent 3 hours on the phone with my favourite today (going to the movies next week). The other one keeps sending me his phone # by email, but I don't want to leave my home # on his phone. I'm having an absolute blast with this site and getting hits from men from 36 to 64. There seems to be lots of quality men in a wide age group available, so never give up hope. Of course, the downside is the athletic 6'2" guy who wrote me, who I then found double-listed on another BBW Date Finder site (2 different hokey names on their site, same picture with both, says he's 5'11 there, 1 listing says no kids, other listing talks about his teenage son). Not a lot of credibility coming through the wires from that one.
I'm 36 and I've put 47 as a maximum age on who I'm looking for simply because I'd possibly like to be a father one day and I know it's tricky for older ladies to have babies. But there's a bunch of nice ladies over 50 here and you just hang in there and you'll get your guy!
